I find near impossible most of the time, to find my ship on minimap due to allies’ ships covering my marker. Maybe different color (yellow?) for own ship would help.
I use the 2d mini-map and it’s hard if not impossible to find my own ship and its *direction*. These features need some improvement. For starters, use another ship icon (which isn’t almost an equilateral triangle) and always draw it on top of the other.
