Suggestion: Individual Map Markers

5 posts in this topic

 

It would be fantastic if each player could set markers, such as waypoints, on their map or possibly also for those on their mission.  It could be used to mark staging areas for people to gather to establish ZoC or pilots could mark individual waypoints to use for strafing or bombing.

Could you give a bit more detail?
There currently are persistent (does not time out) markers you can place for
Attack Points
Rally Points
Bomb/Artillery/Mortar Targers

And you can even type info into each one you set.

Maybe you mean something different, but my brain is tired :(

I think he means on an individual person basis. The Mission Leader can make Rally & Attack waypoints, but those are visible for everyone on the mission.

So with his suggestion, he as a non-ML can open his map, plop down some waypoints or marks only he can see, close map and have them appear on his minimap.

Bingo, @chaoswzkd!  As it is, only mission leaders can put marks on the map for anything other than reporting enemy contacts.  I'd like to do the electronic version of getting my map and a pencil out and putting an X on a spot, to mark it just for my use.

AH, that would be kind of cool
I hope to some day be able to whiteboard the map, where you can draw on it and so forth
