Dynamic Zoom

Post by conn11 »

TL;DR
Zoom out from default view to map associated features could be beneficial placing bigger blueprints without the necessity to switch to the map. Should be toggleable.

What ?
Permit zooming out from default view to radar and map view. This option should be toggleable and turned off by default.
Why ?
Getting a bigger overview is practical. Especially with the ability to place blueprints from map view, it would be practical to zoom out without the need to switch to map view.

i use the Infinizoom mod which allows zooming much further and can be bound to its own key shortcut.

And I doubt this will come to vanilla, because with weaker computers (especially graphic card), a bigger zoom out is a possible issue, which cannot be fixed.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

This point I would argue. I suggeted switiching from max. zoomed out to radar view or, if insufficient radar covarage, map view. This wouldn't stress weaker GPUs more than Vanilla, because it would basically be the same. The only change is skipping switiching manually to map view. IMO beneficial for placing bigger BPs.

As modded workaround ptx0 suggestion should be adequate.
