Cryptic changed the dimensions on the ground maps without mentioning.

Pro
- The units are in Meters now, so if someone is 10 units from you it will be 10 meters away.

Con
- The coordinate values in the export files no longer work 1:1
- The displayed object sizes are all wrong. They are still in feet IIRC.
- The /Loc command doesn't work anymore

This means the maps are stored the same way as before, the change is UI level only. You need to multiply every coordinate value with 0,3281 to get the UI map coordinates in the new system.

When the Dev are over stretched on delivering items from the wishlist and fixing bug, one can only wonder about the motives behind this change.
