    This mod improves the spectator visibility controls:
    • Click a name in the player list to show only that player's vision (same as vanilla PA)
    • Click the selected player again to return to full vision (in addition to vanilla PA's clickable header)
    • Shift-Click multiple players to show the vision of all the selected players (not possible in vanilla PA possible in vanilla PA since v.63180)
    [​IMG] <-- Look mom, two selected!

    This mod is available in PAMM.

    Version 1.0.0 released. I hope that the next PA build will incorporate this selection logic - this follows the logic for solo mode in audio mixers.

    I'm trying to compete for the title of the mod that became obsole the fastest after release. I think the current record is held by Stay Down which became obsolete in 10 days. :D

    I believe this is already the way the game works. at least when i review games in spectator mode this is how it behaves w/o mod.

    Yet another proof at 5:10-6:00 and until the end of the video - he never discovers that how to turn off the solo mode. The current UI has serious learnability problems.

    v.63180 added the shift-click ability from this mod, but not yet the "click the only selected player to show all players" ability, so this mod is not yet obsolete. :( This mod got 50% obsolete in exactly 6 days. Better that than nothing, I guess. :D

    This mod still works in v.63180, btw.

    You're asking whether this mod is useful?

    It has the usability (learnability) improvement that it's easier to guess that how to go back to seeing all players after you have clicked one of them (I haven't seen anybody discover the click-the-title feature without somebody telling it to them first). Utility-wise it's the same as vanilla PA.
