Longtime player, now playing the XPiratez mod and the game is starting to get busy with many flights at one time.  Tracking these flights by watching the red dot on the map and waiting for it to turn into a green X is tedious.

The game alerts me when a craft appears, why not have a configurable alert to let me know if one lands?  This would let me move things along on the geoscape instead of waiting at 5 mins speed for a craft to land.

Thank you for your consideration.

I would love to have this feature. I often find it tricky to watch multiple craft at once.
