Air Drops.

Not sure if there is an option for singleplayer, but for multiplayer there is an option in serverconfig.xml named "AirDropMarker". If this is set to true, airdrops should become marked on the map. However iirc these marks are also gone if you log out or restart the game. That was like this already in previous versions. Those markers will reappear on the map if you come close to the airdrop. Don't know at what distance, but i often rediscovered forgotten airdrops by just accidentially driving past it on a nearby road, not even seeing the airdrop. Afaik there is no option to make all airdrop markers appear again on the map.


Basically imho it's more fun to play without the markers. First it puts some pressure on the player, either go for the airdrop right now or risk to never find it again (or at least place an estimated waypoint where you think it landed). Second, since the airdrops have the signal light and the signal smoke, they can be found really easily by just knowing a rough direction where they were going down, even if there is no exact marker on the map.

Yep. Put a first marker on your exact position, and then a second marker further away from the first marker in the direction where you see the parachute (look, pick a landmark, open map, find landmark on map, set marker)

Then "draw" line over the two markers and you almost always have an absolutely exact direction to follow, easy even if you do the search later.

Just be careful to give the two markers corresponding names of course so that you don't twist them with different drops 😆
