Come on, holding the control key down for that little zoom window.. it's useless.

I'm tired of my cursor permanently having that large zoom window on it, because I accidentally press the Ctrl button as i'm docking. I have to relog the game after, to get rid of the Zoom window on my cursor.

The Ctrl Zoom window is completely useless.. Atleast give us the option to disable it in the setup.

Is this stupid thing hard coded or what? GET RID OF IT!

For the sack of argument.. THERE'S A BETTER ZOOMING FEATURE!!! Rolling Eyes

I'm thinking that container had it coming, eh? Besides, how high do you think it's armor was and how agile?

i quite like this function, being able to up the zoom from x2 would be nice though... Devs can you shed some light on how to change this?

In Beta the zoom wasnt a diddy little low definition window (looks clever but sucks in practical terms) and far better - you were able to get the same definition as normal view. How about returning it to the way it was then?

How about options.. That way you guys can have the pos enabled, and I can have it disabled.

Besides.. There is a much better way to zoom.

That zoom feature is the worthless thing I've ever seen. It conflicts with other CTRL+KEY shortcuts, and does nothing besides extrapolating the pixels on the screen, it doesn't even really zoom!

Yes, zoom your carema out to the max, then make a 180 with it and line it up with the target5 you want to see hehe.

I like the zoom feature also, what DEVs can do as with any other features some people hate/like. Make it a toggable option Cool

You can also hold the right mouse button down, move the mouse in any direction, then without letting go of the right button, hold both buttons down and move the mouse up for a much better zoom.

Humm, when I have the zoom window over the target I left click and this image becomes clear.

Does yours not do this ?
