    Please more base letters?

    This one's an easy one. Can we please have the rest of the alphabet to mark our bases? I've ran out of letters, making bases and points.
    Or at least make it possible to see the marker name on the compass please?

    Thanks guys for an awesome game.

    Edit: I was just thinking about another nice feature too: a way to filter or turn off the compass markers you don't want to see.

    It is an easy one, and the quickest solution to that, before the compass can be cleared up with the introduction of either filtering or a map itself. Thanks for the tip, GaryP156!

    I really like the solar light/marker system, but they can overlap on the compass.
    I’m thinking it would nice to have three types of solar lights, short, medium, and tall.
    With marker ranges of 500, 1000, and 10,000 that match height, or can be set.

    I think it would be great to have solar powered street lamps/lights, and maybe a solar powered mini beam light.

    Names would be excellent. I'll make far more sense than the letters, but they'd soon get jumbled up with other names on there, unless you can can state which base/marker you want to head to and only have that show up in the compass.

    Perhaps have the compass as a hand held device, and include this functionality.

    I have a solar marker on my rover but as I drive the letter slides from left to right on my compassion. Is there any solution for this?

    Thank you. I was hoping it was. 😁

    Turning it off while you are inside, driving, and only use it when you leave your rover

    It is too close to the cockpit. I always install the beacon on the back of my vehicles, as far as possible from the cockpit. That way it does not do the sliding on the compass.
    I made screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/D1FM7 \o/

    Another suggestion: If beacons are overlapping, only show the closest.

    Any idea when (if) this map feature would be added? Would be useful just opaque not translucent background please, it's possible to go overboard with transparencies.

    I was wondering since it's so easy to add the missing letters, is it possible to add into this weeks update?

    I wonder how it would look if compass points got darker the farther away from them you got.
    So the closest would be the brightest.

    I really like this idea. I've now started back at A since I have that many bases set up.

    I really want a way to remotely turn on and off the markers and have different marker icons. One for bases, one for points of interest etc.

    I wouldn't mind having a way to set a color to markers as well, just as we can change color on our beacons. If we had that, and could filter colors on or off, you could use them to dynamically group different types of markers.
