Use waypoints?

If you have waypoints made in the mission editor, they will show up on the map, with a line connecting them.

It also includes the heading, distance and route time (based on a 250km/h ground-speed).

Though personally, I still think the best option would be to be able to make user marks on the map (like a drawing tool) and also facilitate adding custom images to the map, maybe having a library we can choose from and select in flight - all we have to do is calibrate our own position using the existing controls.

If you make the waypoints in mission editor it shows up on the moving map. Just hope the implement some way for us who only play multiplayer to somehow make waypoints to show up on the moving map.

Again, personally, it would be much better if we could put custom images in, so long as they're the correct size and scale there won't be an issues.

You could also mark landmarks and expected targets, as well as friendly forces.

I don’t know what server you play on, I only play on hardcore realistic servers with no F10 maps or anything to help you. So we have to have a way to make a mark point somehow near the targets. We can’t see anything on the F10 map. So your suggestion wouldn’t work for me.

I don't play on MP at all 🙂

Though I doubt pilots are going to be marking targets on the map in mid flight. But a possible solution would be an ability to draw on the map, based on what you see, no F10 map required.

So you could draw on mark points and maybe save the map as an annotated image.

Or maybe it could be done during the briefing.

You underestimate TOO...

in other words, a kind of "DTC". would be cool if you could manage it that way too

Not sure how that relates to the Hind...

But even so, wouldn't targeting pods or even AG RADARs be more useful for TOO? The F10 map markers are more used as a workaround owing to the lack of in-game DTC functionality.

And in-game mission planning and DTC (of-sorts) would be useful for the OP here.

Eh?

No, if you make a load of waypoints in the ME, you will see the waypoints marked on the map, connected by lines, it's not the best and it would be good to make marks on the map in real time, but that's the subject for another thread.
