It is starting to become very annoying - opening the full map M so I can have a clue where I am, but this means I have to stop and look on the map - only because the Compass/Radar/Minimap from the top-right corner of the screen is too small (1) and too zoomed in (2).
There is still some space on top of the quest line area (key thing) so the Minimap could be bigger.
The fact I cannot zoom in/out the Minimap is incredibly frustrating.
As it is, the Minimap is plain useless right now, finding myself opening the M every minute and then move on and then repeat, only because the Minimap is too zoomed and too small to serve any orientation purpose.
Please, I would very much appreciate if you could fix the Minimap - zoom out, bigger size.
Hi, first i want to say that i really like this game a lot and enjoy many of its current features. It runs really well on my mediocre PC and i like that CRATE is so community-friendly regarding modding since i do mod almost every game i play. I have played the game for a few hundred hours by now (probably more than thousand) and the one issue that bugs me is that i can not zoom out on the minimap.
I know most environments by now relatively well, but when i raise a new character i try to get almost everything uncovered. Which means that i have to use the normal map quite often to check if i have not missed out on something important. This behaviour means that i can barely enjoy the beauty of the environment since i spent way to much time looking at the map instead of my character and its surroundings.
If i would see more on the minimap i could use it instead of the map screen which is way less distracting from actual gameplay. With the zoomfactor it has right now its utterly useless for me. I do know you can enlarge the minimap but that does not help at all. I mean you can zoom out/in really far on the normal map, so why lock the minimap?
I have read a few answers on similar topics but they do not cover the fact that having to use the map so often just takes away a lot of immersion and not using it and always feeling that i might miss something important is not helpful either.
So plz make the minimap zoomable or if you do not like to give me an understandable reason why. Or maybe you can point me to a possibility to mod the zoomrate inside the minimap? Even if not zoomable if i could alter it to show a different scale ingame permanently it would be alright too…
Thx in advance and big thumbs up for the rest of your efforts regarding this game…
That statement of yours is quite curious. I thought that I and the other fellow explained how this is a big issue - but judging from your reply, it is now obvious that it won’t be fixed and I guess it wasn’t even looked in or considered to do anything about it.
Please consider this thread closed, as I discontinue using your services.
I read it, but honestly I can’t see a problem with it. The mini-map comes in two sizes. What you seem to want is for it be even bigger so that it covers practically the whole screen to me. Am I wrong? How are you going to see where you’re going apart from navigating by this huge map?
You may see it as a big issue, but this is the only time I’ve seen anyone asking for it to be changed.
I’m with the OP here. If the minimap remained in size but could also be zoomable - that would be a blast for my game experience as well. Even with the big size, the minimap cannot help me navigating. Please consider this suggestion!
Doing that led me to create this thread, as my opinion about the game design was severely dropping due to its terrible navigation/orientation feature which is the compass.
Realizing the current compass is completely useless, I did exactly what you described above, but it didn’t last long because my game immersion and game over all experience were completely wrecked.
I am with OP on this. Zoom for radar would be great.
@medea_fleecestealer for moderator you have poor attitude in my opinion. You should be listening to customers and trying to understand them not keyboard fighting them as you are doing with MBEUNE. I have just bough Grimdown and 2 expansions this week and love the game but seeing how you treat customers I have to say I lost good dose of sympathy for the Grimdown cause. Something you may think about.
To be constructive. Wouldn’t it be better to say “Thanks for suggestion and playing Grim Down. We will pass it to Dev team to consider” ? There everyone would be happier, even if it will never get done
