Better question ( at least on my end ) why do I have to right click now multiple times to get the window to stay up so I can make a report on the map, also when I'm INF the mouse key to aim likes to go from aim zoom back even that I keep the mouse button pushed. Didn't have that issue before last patch , it's highly annoying.

this is the problem
each player uses an icon
Why not use a specific one?

Most used symbol I've seen is ships for friendly FMS.

yeah. game tradition. new unique marks as Kareca suggests would be good.

the issue with Rally Point or Attack Point marks w/text  is that only ppl on the mission see them.

This is a great idea @kareca

I would go even further and say that all friendly FMS on the same TARGET should be visible on map, not only the ones on YOUR mission. So far we have to ask people on other missions to mark their FMS's... Usually shipmarks are referred to this, but they vanish with time.

If we could see all friendly FMS's (and ammo boxes) on the map it would be great for attacks/defense setup, and also to give an idea of their numbers/availability, in order to request more FMS or not.

Sounds like a good fix for the future.

S! all

YES! Many years requesting this! This is MUST.

I can see a auto ammo box location show up on map.

However I think that you should have the option to broadcast your FMS location, not all ppl want their location avail for all to see without joining mission.  I think if you did a auto mark for FMS would rue the day with spying accusations.. be it true or not. The key to broadcasting however should be a mouse over to find the ML name and mb a double click to join that mission, something that has more of a benefit to get insta action instead of just a map location.

Better idea, allow users to change colour of marks.

And colour is spelled correctly, regardless of what my spell checker is saying :-)

Would be nice if you could free draw on the map..,

actually, no it wouldn't, as per the penis rule.

It would be great to somehow indicate a direction of movement on the map. When you mark a moving ET, it's not really very useful. A small arrow perhaps?
