Map Zooming [OLD]

Post by Omnidon » Sat Jul 08, 2006 7:38 am

Probably the single most frequently requested feature in BRPG is the ability to zoom the map at any time.

Ideally, this could be done quickly and easily with the scrollwheel or + / - buttons.

It is apparently a very difficult feature to implement, however.
  • Zoom Out
    Many users want to be able to quickly get a bird's-eye view of a large map.
    A Zoom Out feature is considered better than a minimap by some because it both lets you adjust distance and keeps the map centered on where you were looking.
  • Zoom In
    For those who need a closer look at things or just want to admire the pretty colors.

Another must-have functionality ... just like the mini-map
