Map: Strategic zoom on a 3D map

Original thread is here.

Basically replace the 2D map with a 3D map that the user can view of the whole continent with seamless zooming in and out. It wouldn't show enemies/friendlies on the map at all. When you die it would be the screen you'd see to choose a spawn point. Squad leaders, Galaxies, and AMSes that you could spawn at would be visible, but you wouldn't be able to see any of the battle until you spawned.

As LordReaver said it would be a more intuitive map for squad leaders to draw on. (The drawings could even show up lightly on the terrain for the players).

3D > 2D

It would be dreamy if the map was 3D.

Perhaps allow you to see friendly force icons while you choose your spawn?

That way you can see where is safe, and where is on the front line (although that's pretty clear with current hotspots).

I would also assume that you will see the hex grid situation as well as you choose.

While we're on the subject of the map.

When spawned, show AMS's and Lodestars on the map within a 500meter range.

Correct me if I'm wrong but won't we drop in pods from orbit.

Think we also may be able to pilot the drop pod to change where it lands. Believe we were told you can land on someone and get a kill.
