Default How to prevent the other team for seeing waypoint flags for ground units?

Currently, if you have the F10 map up and swap slots, you will be able to see all ground unit waypoints for both teams.

Several questions:

1. How does swapping slots actually work? Upon swapping slots, is the game actually quickly cycling you through to spectators first before putting you in the desired plane?

2. If you join Spectators and open the F10 map, are you normally able to see waypoints for both sides?

3. Is it possible to disable spectator view of the F10 map? Maybe this would help/solve the problem?

+1 this sort of feature is sorely needed, we shouldn't need to trust the honor system to keep people from behaving as omniscient spies in a mission.

It can all be disabled in mission editor. We run our server so you are only able to see your own aircraft on the F10 Map and no ground units what so ever??

Which setting prevents spectators from seeing everything on the map? The ME F10 settings apply to players that have chosen slots, not to spectators. I have the F10 forced to Own A/C in the mission. Spectators can still see everything.
