Add an option to disable the black stripes in zoomed-in map view

Post by RoseQuartz »

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 would like an option to disable them so that I can play the game without being distracted by this visual effect.

Bug report I submitted because I initially believed this to be a bug: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=92265&p=524385#p524385

There's nothing wrong with it. Should stay as it is.

They're visually pretty ugly and distracting.

Please remove pixilation on zoomed/focused map view

Post by Dune »

The view of the player map when zoomed in enough for things to render, the areas around the edges are pixilated (has lines). See included screenshots. This isn't the case on the normal player view.

The pixilation makes me nauseous. It really makes me ill. Please make a way to disable this 'feature.'

Made a mod to remove these lines just now with the help of user eradicator. Give it a try.

[1.1] Please allow disabling the black lines in map view

Post by Ambaire »

They're awful.

Signed,

A player with eye strain and a headache. :cry:

P.S. Why was this considered a wanted feature? :? I thought one of the goals of Factorio was player friendliness, and giving us eyestrain and headaches is not friendly.

I like 'em. They help me keep in mind whether I'm looking at radar/map view or live view.

Map mode inderlaced edges?

Post by 6thC »

TL;DR
Can I have the map view not so coney / interlaced edges. Is there a client setting to disable it. I'm not interested in it / it bugs me.
What ?
To go back to no client effects in map mode
Why ?
Because I like Factorio as a game but not this part.

Thanks - not being snarky just concise.

Yeah, I like that effect, it looks good for most parts of the factory...

But stroboscopic blinking on vertical buses is quite annoying sometimes. I will not be surprised that it gives headache for some people.

I have no idea why that is a thing in the game. It doesn't serve any purpose and looks terrible

It makes me really dizzy.
In my own games, I can use a mod or command to disable them, but when I play on public servers (which I do), I have no such choice.
Therefore, please make an option to disable this lines!

Is the OP running some kind of mod on top of that? On Vanilla, anything outside of live view range should be dimmed, not bright dithered like that.

No, that's the way map view currently works.

I don’t mind the effect by itself but when it combines with belts it creates a strobing effect that’s really distracting. I would normally use a mod to disable it but I’m working on getting achievements right now so that’s not an option. This seems like it should be in the base game anyway as it’s purely visual, and a toggle for turning it off or going back to the previous implementation should be easy to implement.

Such a grid patterns really hurt eyes if you have astigmatism.

BTW, effect can be disabled without breaking achievements by editing "data\core\graphics\shaders\zoom-to-world.psh" shader. Just remove lines 167-201.
