...would be my one and only complaint about FB !

I hate icons, but I don't like current plane visibility without them. Right now I go for lesser evil, which is "no icons".

Seriously, this needs reworking. It is very easy to lose a plane even when looking directly at it from several hundred meters. Sometimes I find planes easier by sound than by looking for them.

IMHO, a patch that would somehow improve this would win my heart & mind /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Yea recognize type of planes in Fb is very poor without icons. Maby its very hard to simulate visiblity from diffrent distance in computer siulation.

I suggest you fine tune your graphics settings.. contact me, i have couple of tips.. atleast worked for me, now i can see Tiny I-16s an Yaks bit better.. or it could be, that I've actually get used to stare at the screen to spot the damn things! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Though I do agree, I don't understand why I-16 is 4 times smaller when you look at the dot from 2 kilometers or longer range... buts in the game, nothing we can do about it, but to get used to it.
