The addition of ship names on the minimap is great (apart from the bug that didn't allow you to switch them off, now fixed) but:

 

Can we have a key toggle to switch on/off?

It's in minimap settings on the minimap corner, not hard to access.

Exactly, thus a button function for this is quite unlikely at this point :)

To use as is now:

Use mouse to access menu. Select Checkbox. Reverse process to switch off again. Takes your mouse away from ship control and your concentration away for a couple of seconds.

 

With a toggle key:

Instant, no loss of concentration

You do it at the 1st minute or the battle when there's still no engagement.

But you don't want it on all the time - its too cluttered. You want to be able to flick it on to identify where the enemy ships are and what they are then flick it off again.

In fact its even more clumsy than I said above because you need to go into map view first.

Its something that would be so easy to do and give a lot more utility to it

I have a big minimap so it's not bothering me.

You know you can make the minimap bigger by pressing + ?

 

I can't imagine wanting to turn it off, tbh, it is far too useful. You think checking the box is a pain during battle, before they introduced the feature I used to have to type in chat to ask what DD etc was spotted at the other side of the map. Knowing where all the spotted ships are and what they are is invaluable.

Yeah, but I don't really want it any bigger -it about 1/3 height of screen and same width obviously
