View Full Version : Zoom in/out map by right dragging mouse?

I'd love to see the map able to be zoomed in/out with a right mouse button drag so you could zoom in OR out, rather than cycle through the zooms... which is a bit cumbersome during battle. I'm kind of suprised you can't zoom out as well as in (rather than cycle) even in PF. Any reason such a feature has never been implimented?

Oh, and add to that the ability to toggle a 'keep your plane centered in map' function, too...

Consider that two for the wishlist!

It IS a drag, isn't it... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (sorry, couldn't resist the bad pun)

In the meanwhile, what I do is keep cycling until the grid displays squares about 1x1 inch. You actually get that size twice; one of them is full zoom in.

Centering the map around your plane is easy: just refresh the map (close / open again).

Ugh, pun crime!

Ya, that's what I do (close&open to refresh).

Actually, come to think of it, I also wish you could toggle to a full-screen map as well...

Another one for the wish list.... wherever that is...

Yeah, or an entirely new system using comms.
Squad mates informing about their states and positions, helping find ground targets when in sight, etc...

Actually, I should join the wish list thread. I still haven't read it through, so I guess this may have already been suggested.
