|This feature is available in-game|
This page is part of the Unknown Horizons Design Document and the proposed features have been implemented.
The article reflects the design at that point. For new features or improvements, please create an own article or tickets instead of editing this page!
Zooming the ingame map is a feature to provide a better overview for players in certain situations. There should be different degrees of zooming - how much exactly is hard to say for now. Maybe 100%, 75%, 50%, 25% or even some degrees in between.
Zoom is already part of FIFE. The feature provides the possibility to zoom in and out as much as you want.
Unknown Horizons will not need the full feature, because it is not expected to zoom in from default view, but only out and in back again to default view. The original size of the gfx should be the maximum zoom level.
Obviously the level less zoom feature comes with the major flaw of required performance. It might be of help to limit zoom to certain degrees to avoid continous resizing of images.
Pressing the according button(s) on the ingame GUI, using a hotkey or the mouse scrolling wheel will activate this feature.
This feature is already implemented.
