# 1 New Sector Space - Camera Zoom
03-31-2015, 04:25 AM
Why does the camera have to be so zoomed in while in sector space? I tried going around on one of my toons who flys a Galaxy and my ship takes up half the screen, and the ambient noise from my ships engines overpowers even the background music.

Small thing to gripe about, but I can't find anything in the settings to change it.

The camera can be zoomed out by rolling the wheel on your mouse.

Yeah... Tried that, it only zooms out so far, I'm not an imbecile, I've been playing this game since it was in closed beta.

Here's an image of what I mean:

At that zoom level, the ambient noise from my ship is overpowering. You can't zoom out any further. It also makes navigating highly difficult since you can't see your surroundings as well as you used too. Takes the joy of just flying around sector space when you're bored, and now with the new visuals, it just sucks.

I've already complained about this multiple times. Other people have too. I even wrote a detailed explanation of all the problems with zoom.

Technical details regarding problems with zoom

It's not just the maximum camera distance. There are problems with map transitions and keybinds.
