Just a few observiations about the minimap. Why is it possible to see a ship with line of sight, panning camera etc but they don't show up on the minimap? Also a ship can be shooting at you and it doesn't show in the minimap. In the middle of a dog fight you want to see where the shots are coming from its quicker to glance at the minimap to id the shooter but they are not shown and you have to waste precious mili-seconds panning around to find out the direction.
Is this intentional? What are the rules for showing up on the minimap? I can understand a cloaked ship not showing up. But surely if they shooting at you any sane system would be able to inform you of the direction?
Is it supposed to be a fog of war thing or a radar type thing? Either way if something can be seen it should be on the minimap.
