that line was already there, now it's there twice - see the end of the Nasal section inside the dialog.

Old Radar

Is there plans for old style forward looking, with sweep-line and fading dots for contacts? Is the plan to show only MP or is the plan to show AI also?

So far, it's dealing with both things - AI and MP, the same way - it would require 3 lines of code to change this to make either of the two modes optional. Regarding the style, that's up to aircraft developers actually - by default, it will be just about providing the corresponding data (positions, altitude, aircraft) - it will be up to the implementor to visualize this in a certain way, i.e. by providing either custom draw routines (callbacks), or simply by providing corresponding SVG/PNG images to customize the appearance of the Radar. Without any Nasal/Canvas experience, people will by default be getting a Radar to similar to the one available on the m2000-5 obviously - but people with some Nasal experience, will be able to easily customize things.
