Ability to see ally's layout reservations when jumping

I have a request that hopefully would prove useful to players whenever they've placed a layout reservation. The problem is that you can't see where the layout reservation is located until your allies tell you where it is. The layout marker should only appear when your jumping as to avoid base stealing of good layouts. Even if you spotted the layout, you can't tell if its good unless there's a camp or outpost sitting there at the moment. I hope this suggested feature would polish out some minor inconveniences.

    If allies truly work together then layout claims are made in a shared forum that all have access to view and write to. I've seen this used in the past.

    Not everyone agrees what is a 'good' layout, some need a one to grow cash, some tib and some crystal. Seeing a layout could be done via posting a cncopt (or similar) of the layout with the claim.

    This could have been done with massive amounts of cooperation between allies. They could share where the layouts are and avoid getting too close to it. The problem here is that some players don't cooperate.

    I had an alliance member with a short name of "heatseeker" (not real name, I think it was a base name) attack a player holding POI belonging to the north sector.

    The consequences were so great I was forced to resign from my alliance. There was an inevitable war that was the result of a noob who don't read announcements.

    To me, a good layout is a 5 touch, a double 5 touch or a 6 touch. On non-forgotten attacks world, this can be tiberium based, otherwise it should be crystal based. The first base is usually designated as a credits base, there's nothing good with 1st layouts anyways.

    I would also prefer to join an alliance on where everyone is a bit of a novice, to the point they know the rules and each can easily research a 2nd base within a week.

    Hello Commanders, are we talking about Layout reservations between friendly alliances?
    Otherwise, within an alliance Layout Reservations are shared.

    I am referring to layout reservations being shared between neighboring friendly Alliances. This would be like a player knowing where the layout reservation of of his Ally's CiC is located. The problem here is cooperation, sometimes you jump too close to a neighboring layout, preventing other players from deploying their 2nd/3rd/4th base.
