Is there a way to locate party members? I want to know if I can simply open up my map and find my friends instead of having to get them to pick me up at a local camp or by getting directions. I haven't heard anyone talk or complain about this so I'm sure it is possible, can anyone let me know? Thanks for reading

was this how ffxi was? call me new school but it would just seem more pratical to maybe have some dots that actually show up on the actual map representing party members. hai guiz im at 22-42.. but by the time you get here we will probably be at 32-52.

****.

I know what you mean, the <pos> commands dont work. On teh main map it used to show you your teams location. Uhmm not now however. and without the mainmap markers or to be able to put markers, cant use the POS command.. it is getting hard to find mates after say a death and you need to run back to camp. ( real party camp not your newb leve camps)
as the **** says you do hae a mini map with dots but it has such a short range. and .. well is useless really, that mini map is actully in the way. Not neded. ( FXI never had min but had POS and Markers on main map which worked WAY better.

With a name like MajidahSihaam, this guy probably dropped a Jihad on the feature that displays party members on full-screen map.

Just throw a shoe at him, I've heard that's the best insult you can use against them.

He quoted a long soliloquy from Team America World Police about the three (3) types of people in the world.

It was pretty funny...
