tricorder - mini map - mobs
I can appreciate some wanting to see red dots on the mini map.

But it takes away some of the mystery of "what is around the next corner?"

Sometimes it's exciting to race down a hallway and turn the corner and run into 5 mobs that start shooting. You stop, retreat a bit and are startled... Kind of fun.

Perhaps the tricorder could be integrated in such a way that you get general distance and number of life signs, but not a permanent mini map with red dots.

Any other thoughts on this subject?

I think it depends on the circumstances. Sensors and see where I am from orbit to beam me up - my tricorder should be able to tell me where the bad guys are from 100 feet away...

Besides, if they weren't on the map the way they were, you'd wander around looking for them forever in those "kill 5 groups" missions.
