PF get rid of those dumb airplane icons on the map and replace them with a plain dot or square there is to much info given about the enemy aircraft. Before anyone tells me to turn them off or play in a server without them, I don't like spending 30-60min just trying to locate the enemy. Because more often then not I am not the only one who is lost and I don't mean lost in that I don't know where I am going but I am in Area A enemy in Area B and nobody will communicate to tell you where they are and more ofthe than not that includes your own team.

You can have your own Icon shown on the map only.

Try print out of maps, very immersive and it works fantastic. Turn off that map pasted to the sky, except for testing AI behavior and mission behavior in FMB.

Actually, when I run a public game online, I want to know exactly who is causing trouble so I can give them the quick boot the so richly deserve! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/smileys-gun2.gif

In the end, we can set up icons now so many different ways, there just is no need to exclude anything. Please try not to force your belief system on others, it ain't makin' it!

Now with an actual index & more fiber! It is newer & and even more improved! It's Luckyboy's Guide For Complete Users!...

I'll vote for changing the icons to something a little easier to distinguish. maybe a small triangle or arrow vs a plane icon. I dont use icons on the map online, but in single player it would be nice to have that option

Lucky, they are talking about map icons. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Map icons is one of the few settings that will keep me from joining a co-op.
