Oleg and crew have probably already considered this, but here I go anyway.

When we hit the accelerated time in Long missions and the screen goes black perhaps it would be a good idea to have a simple picture of the Campaign map to replace the black instead? It should be a still non-animated map - just a basic reference tool. Keeping it simple would also mean the map would use little resources loading (and should load instantly).

Ok, so on some maps they`ll just be a big blue screen (the sea), but at least it`ll be a little more pleasant to look at and it may even help remind pilots of what the mission is.

Alternatively, you could even make the kind of screen customisable, so we could have whatever picture appear while we wait... Hehe. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Obviously keep the Timer as usual.
