Black stripes at edge of screen in zoomed-in map view

I recently noticed black stripes at the edges of the screen when viewing some part of my base in zoomed-in map view and find them really irritating.

I'm reporting this as a bug since I don't see any mention of it as a feature in any release notes.

While the attached screenshot is of a heavily modded save, I have verified that it looks the same with all mods disabled on 1.1.x (which should be 1.1.2 rn). The stripes are not visible on 1.0.0, so I assume this bug or feature was introduced with 1.1.0 or later.

If the stripes are a feature I would really like an option to disable it as I find them very distracting.

It is supposed to look like an old screen.

Can you turn this thread into a feature request for me or should I repost it as one?

Post a new one please, check out 47316 for guidance,its just a few lines and you can use the screenshot. To use this one the title would have to be changed and then the comments do not make sense. Simpler to start from scratch.

This makes me cry that this is an 'intended' feature. It makes me nauseous to look at it. Why would the devs want to make the players sick? If there's a feature request to disable this, I'd sign that pledge.

Made a suggestion post since I didn't see one for this, please add 'me too' to it.

Just for the record, disabling it is literally a one-line mod.

Code: Select all

data.raw['utility-constants'].default.zoom_to_world_effect_strength = 0

You make it sound easy. I've almost no experience in modding factorio. I downloaded the test mod, added that line to settings.lua (since it seems a setting) and I get attempt to index field 'utility-constants' (a nil value) ...
