In in order to accommodate the larger player size, the scavenge results screen has been modified to fit 8 players and will show their missing/deceased/alive states accordingly, the spectating screen properly fits greater than 4 players if they die, and the quickmenu player volume section accounts for greater than 4 players, with a scrollable UI.
As of writing, the latest build of the MoreCompany mode is version 1.4.2, which fixed an issue with death screen rendering above the results screen. Future updates are said to potentially add some more cosmetics.
