can you filter only dino that you are attacking?

@Jolinah Many thanks for the your mod, do you have any plans to develop it further?

@Kathryn: It was intentional. But the default (yellow) name display was also hidden, which was a bug. This should be fixed now.

@EXI_DarkJester: Offset (2D) offsets the nameplates in screen coordinates while Offset (3D) offsets them in world coordinates. This way, you can move them in front/back or the sides of a dino. It was just an idea, but has not proven to be particularly useful ;)

What is the difference between the Offset (2D) and Offset (3D) please?

Hello. Maybe I'm confused, but when I use minimalistic mode, I don't see the names and levels of wild dinos. Maybe this was intentional, or maybe I'm just missing something. Thanks in advanced.

Hi there

It seems itchy / dolphin is missing.

I did not play today. Anyway, I see you are stillworking on it, and thank you for that. Every time I love a mod, creators abandon it fast...
