The ability to put an Army-specific "note" (e.g. Waypoint/Mark/Pencil drawing) in the FMB that would show up on your kneeboard.

But not as a waypoint attached to a plane's path.

Similar to the recon icon, or the current icon, but enhanced.

Think:

Operation Flashpoint where you can add notes, arrows, etc.

I'm having a hard time articulating the idea, but...

Since no one replied to your request and it is about to drop off the page, I will jump in.

Basically, you want to be able to 'write' 'something' to the knee board, in some manner or form, to you own Army, while making a mission.

If this is only to relay info/intel, the simplest thing I can think of is an option in the 'Target' drop down that allows you select an Intel option. The option could be an assortment of icons that relay what you know in that area of the map. Tanks, airfield, convoy, etc. Like command might have used in operations.

'I' don't think that is necessary, but hey, that is just me. Of course, I will take what bells and whistles 1C gives, especially in map design/FMB.

If you want to direct human players to an area, just use recon, they can be pleasantly surprised by what's there when they arrive. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

EDIT: In regards to actually 'scribbling' on a map, there could be an option for a transparent text box. However, 'I' don't see a need for that either. Again, that's just me.

Maybe a pic of the target area could be attached to the mission map, and pressing the "map" key again (and again for more than one attachment) would page through each recon photo. Of course, I am assuming the mission builder would include the intel pic. If the flight leader wanted to scribble notes on the map or pics for the entire group prior to the mission launch, that would be sweet, too!
