Proposal
Implement a toggle for the radar and mini map to allow NPC's to be removed so only in game players are visible.
Justification
This would be very useful for many PvP scenarios as it will allow you to find/select targets a lot easier when they are surrounded/near NPC's
Motivation
It can be frustrating finding targets when scouting for PVP players that are surrounded by NPC's and this toggle would be a very useful tool to eliminate that.
It would be great if it was possible to allow the toggling of npc's visibility from any maps to highlight only players. Ideally this would be for both the radar and overhead map however, if it was just the radar it would still be a great improvement to the current system IMO.

If it was to be implemented, it might also be good or even necessary, to allow some sort of stealth / cloak skill for classes such as ranger/snipers/jedi so they dont show up on the radar when using the skill.

Hm, I kind of feel it can be a tactic to hide in a spawn though to hide your location in some cases
there is an option to have NPCs show a circle around them, that can help distinguish them from players currently

which btw is this icon, it appears when you mouse over the radar
