    Default Zoom out of the game map or bigger map

    we can zoom in and out of the city and town views, but our map view is set by the screen size and resolution. when i plug evony into my 50" 1920x1080 tv my map is around 40x20 squares big.
    my 15" laptop monitor at 1366x768 is 4x3, my old laptop screen was 18" 1980x1080 and it was also only 4x3.

    the map is super tiny, me and a few other people bug out sometimes and get big maps. it's also been said on the feedback site that this feature is already implemented, well it's not working.

    being able to zoom out would be great
    i think (at least) the arrow keys should allow you to move your view of the map
    that's the way it worked in age1
    don't know why they changed it

    I'm 100% sure that this is a repeat suggestion.

    it's been repeated around 20 times now, never gets the attention it deserves

    wanted to put it in general discussion for the exposure and replies, but it would have been moved here lol

    hoping 20'th times the charm

    i always thought that the map could use a bit of an upgrade
    especially around the area that you can effectively view (or zoom)
    once i started playing age 2 it was worse because the arrow keys don't move the view

    the evolliance map functions were good but they didn't update
    you had to depend on the alliance members to keep it up to date
    only as good as the data input :\

    when you are on the map view if you had a state view with red, yellow, blue and green squares and maybe the same for a world view it would be a huge improvement when it came to porting into battle and away from trouble

    the zoom in could be as simple as clicking the relevant state from the world map, then in the state view your mouse click could bring you back to standard (as today) view.

    the coords could still be represented by the cursor location

    that's my thoughts
    not that my opinion matters

    Or just bring back Xaandium Studios and you wouldn't even need to use the map. LOL. Can't believe they censor that.

    the package you mention was not what is being requested here and i believe was contrary to the TOS being it allowed you to find particular individuals via a third part application

    Still, the TOS is currently violated anyways, and this is nothing compared to the 90% of the population who are botting their asses off. This saves all the map lag, and Evony could even offer it as a buyable package so they could make even more money! (yes, this is mostly sarcastic.)
