Not being able to Zoom in further...

Postby Shady Bliss » December 16th, 2017, 1:44 pm

Not being able to Zoom in further on the in game map or the one on the website is really starting to bug me.

For multiplayer it is really prominent how annoying it is. When you are in an area with a tree stand/decoys/tents and two other players and they are placing markers on the map you cannot see it at all on the big map.
It just doesn't let you zoom in far enough.

I wish we could zoom in a lot further than what we can now.

I have pointed that out repeatedly and fully agree. On my screen the map magnification is even smaller than the map fragment displayed on the huntermate.

I believe the HM zoom is one power greater than the map. So if the HM is 2 inches wide, the zoom level is 1:7920 (1":0.125mi), where the map is about 1:15,840
It would be nice to see them both at least one more zoom level (1:3960), and with a better topographic representation.

Posting here in the Thoughts & Suggestions forum is the best you can do. Not all posts get read, for obvious reasons, but you never know. Moderators do not have the ability to bring posts to the attention of the developers.
