Im an aviation junky and spend most of my time transporting troops or doing wreck recovery's in game. Although OA is a bit faster at opening and closing the map than in arma2 (for me anyways) its still sluggish and dangerous at times, while flying, to zoom in or out on a map looking for a waypoint or drop zone or piece of equipment... Is there a way to make a waypoint that shows up on my compass rose like in alot of the tutorials?? I think the team leaders/squad leaders show up but as a pilot i'd like to place one on the map and be able to see it on my compass rose at the top of the screen as the orange marker they normally are for objectives...

This would be a huge improvement for pilots... is this currently possible? If not could it be mod'ed

cool , cant wait to try this later this evening! So your saying just hold left shift and then click the left mouse button? And this will give me the indicator on my compass rose? Not a standard marker that can only be seen while in map mode?
