Just some things that I'd like to see fixed/improved in 1.22 (I hope there's still time for that).

Is it possible to show only lables for you section leader? I'd really like to fly without lables at all, but a possbility to have a colored label that just let's you see "03" (or "01") would be nice. This way your nice view of the FB world is not completely cluttered with red and blue dots all over the place and you can find your flight/section leader a bit quicker.

In addition to the AI fixes, are there any fixes on the way that enhance the radio/messaging system? I mean, is there a way in 1.22 to hear only radio messages from your flight and not all the flights? Futhermore, a possiblity to ask where your flight members are or what there doing would be nice ;-)

For a chance of Oleg seeing it you should post in Oleg`s ready room.

As far as AI coms is concerned I think flights not concerning your immediate squad should have a quieter volume, (like the Freelancer Space game or Apache havoc). Your Squad should always have the loudest volume. It would make it easier to tell if any messages were for you.

Assign a key to Toggle Icon Types under Controls, and you can toggle through 4 kinds of settings for icons, although this applies to every plane, not just your section leader.

1) No label
2) Distance
3) Distance, player name (or flight number, offline, ie. <+, 1, 4, etc.)
4) Distance, plane, player name

I believe there is a way to limit icon distance for freindly and enemy, or turn off enemy completely, even. I've seen it online, but I'm not sure how it's done, or if it's possible offline.

Good hunting,

^the command to do it online is "mp_dotrange". With mp_dotrange you can set the icons for both friendlys and enemys. Example:

mp_dotrange FRIENDLY DOT 15 RANGE 2.0 COLOR 1.5 TYPE 0.01 NAME 0.01 ID 0.5

This will resiult in you seeing friendly dots at dist 15, friendlys at range 2, their color at 1.5 and their ID at 0.5. You will not see planetype and name of player due to the "TYPE 0.01" and "NAME 0.01".

To set these for the enemys just use "FOE" instead of "FRIENDLY". If you don't use "FRIENDLY" or "FOE" the settings will apply to both teams.
