[MOD 0.13] Zoom - a wider zoom

  • Name: Zoom
  • Description: Just 2 buttons to zoom extra wide or close, further than actual gui limits ! And a ALT-Z hotkey to direct zoom out.
  • Tested-With-Factorio-Version: 0.13.0
  • Multiplayer compatible: tested on a headless server...
  • Locale: none
  • Tags: gui, zoom
  • License: You are free to use and distribute this mod and also to modify it for personal use, but not to release a modified version without permission (unless visibly not maintained anymore).
  • Portal download : https://mods.factorio.com/mods/binbinhfr/Zoom
Just 2 buttons to zoom extra wide or close, further than actual gui limits ! And a ALT-Z hotkey to direct zoom out.

Note :
- beware that extreme wide zoom can be CPU consuming...
- if you zoom extra wide, you will probably see strange parts of the map that are not already generated. It is not a bug.
- when you switch from mousewheel-zooming to buttons-zooming, you will notice that the zoom is making a "jump". Even if it looks like a bug, it is not : this problem is due to a limitation of factorio API which allows us to write the zoom value but not to read it (for potential desync reasons see here : viewtopic.php?f=25&t=20820&start=10#p131551). So when you click on the zoom-buttons, the mod uses the last zoom value that it knows, and not the true zoom value probably modified by mousewheel...

I like the mod, but untoggled it due to a CTD when I must have accidentally "over-zoomed" out too much. I do see your warning here in this thread, but didn't at first as all the info I had was from the mod portal.

I actually want to use it for an effect where I go from outer-space to whole planet and seamlessly zoom into the game-playing area for a project (Animated Factorio Fan-Fic Comic) that I'm working on. It is actually going to be a view from a "viewing window" inside the escape capsule as it heads towards the rotating planet surface.

I like the extra zoom in, but I wish it had pan controls at that level so that all I wasn't seeing was my character's shoes. Yes, I could use the invisible character mod, but I actually wanted the character in the shot.
Best Regards,

I would suggest adding a third button, to bring up the last zoom value set by the mod.

Why? Because once we have the right level of zoom chosen with -/+ if we go back to manual scrolling and return we end up jumping to a different level of zoom than the last one we used... which is what is normally wanted.

Binbinfr is not playing the game any longer and is unlikely to implement any new features.

Sorry pal. We all miss him greatly. <3
