Description

When playing ELITE & VETERAN modes the map centres on your position at the start of the mission letting you know exactly where you are on the map even when you start with a random placement radius.
It would be better if the map started zoomed completely out every time.

Also: the icon called 'MOVE MAP TO PLAYER POSITION' should be disabled for elite & veteran modes.

Also: Clicking on the map while holding 'SHIFT' creates a visible waypoint to follow.

Also: Parachutes have built in GPS :-s
While descending on a parachute it adds a moving (GPS style) cross on the map which follows your position until you land.

This all renders the GPS, compass & map useless.

(you can also press the find player's location and it will go to you)

@Costavojik...
Yeah just tested and I see what you mean, thanks I'll add that to the description :-)

This needs fixing.

Here is a quick workaround script that centres the map on [0,0] the first time it is opened (add to init.sqf):

  • spawn

{
disableSerialization;
waitUntil {visibleMap};
_mapCntrl = (findDisplay 12) displayCtrl 51;
_mapCntrl ctrlMapAnimAdd [0, 1, [0, 0]];
ctrlMapAnimCommit _mapCntrl;
};

Added an extra note to the description about parachutes having built in GPS

i think when you open map it should be zoomed out central of course (middle of map) and when you zoom in its just where ever your cursor is
