I tried editing the zoom in the user.cfg, and while it does work, also from the command line it resets everytime you touch the mouse wheel.....

ie zoom 1.5 in command line or user.cfg takes the view out a bit
but mouse the mouse wheel out a bit and it resets to default

Anyway to fix this? Maybe there is an entry for mousewheel zoom range etc?

I want the view to be zoomed out a tad more, so I can see things better etc

Aha!

I figured it out...

In the default.cfg in the User folder in the Drox Operative install location.

changing the entries

zoomMin 0.2
zoomMax 1.3

to

zoomMin 0.2
zoomMax 3

allows you to zoom out much further
Funny how I missed that after all this searching...

Cool find. Did you discover a way to make objects show up further away - specifically other ships. Seems they're set to work only with zoom set to 1.3, where they'd show up at the edge of your screen. At 3.0 they fade in closer to the middle of the screen.

I think it depends on your radar and tech

Oh, good point. I didn't even think of that. Cheers.
