Default Will there be a patch?

I know its kindof early, but... some suggestions to improve the interface.

1. How about a dotted line on the radar screen to denote which direction the periscope is pointed. It can be a little disorientating sometimes.

2. Waypoints on the radar map. It would be great if the ACTUV radar interface was just like the interface for the MH-60 in DW. That interface allowed you to place/manipulate waypoints and pan the screen (like a mini nav map). I hate having to go back and forth to the nav map and would perfer to just stay on the F1 screen for the whole mission.

I'd like a hotkey to control sonar pings, too. It would be nice to be able to toggle MF sonar modes from the map screen.

+1

Something like the space bar to send an active ping and like the Z key to toggle active on/off.

We're getting a patch ready for a crash bug (see the FAQ) but it won't have any new features.
