Extra Zoom Levels

A very easy and basic mod that simply adds extra zoom levels to the options menu. You can select from between 1 and 10 zoom power instead of the default 2 to 4.

The mod will be compatible with any mod that doesn't mess with zoom levels, so you don't have to worry about that.

Compatible with the current build, and potentially indefinitely compatible unless something drastic changes.

It's not possible to use decimals in zoom levels due to Starbound's engine at this time. We are also unable to add custom hotkeys.

I guess either get a bigger screen or a smaller screen to match your zoom level style so that it lokks just right....

I guess this mod's glory days may be over, from the beta times. going one more step way too small and several steps way, way, way too big provides much less than being able to find a personal sweet-spot in 0.25 increments, if 2x is just a bit too far out, and 3x too close. switching back and forth can feel dramatically restricting or distracting. if decimal zoom levels are impossible now, i wonder if the large difference between whole integer zoom levels could ever just be reduced, so e.g. the different between 2-5x would be more like the difference between 1.75-3.5x in the old version. IDK, I've always thought this game would benefit from mousehweel zoom or similar, so it is odd that there are really only 2 playable zoom levels and both are drasitcally different (2x/3x) at least on most screens or for most gameplay purposes. Maybe had to do with how assets are rendered, but I do not understand what changed (but ofc, I am not a game developer)

Got a manual download link or tell me where the workshop file is saved in when I sub so I can copy and paste that?

Making an aircraft mod, exactly what I need to drop a tactical nuke.
Nice work

this mod adds new zoom levels, but they are not visible in settings and I personally was sure this mod is not working until I tried clicking "<" button and went to level 1 zoom

Blast and darn. I figured there had to be a good reason, but 2.25 - 2.75 zoom was where it was at.

@pharmako_dynamis a long time ago they changed how the engine worked to avoid glitchy bugs. I doubt they'd even have the ability to give us non-integers anymore, even if they wanted to. But I agree, it's sad that we can't go below 1 anymore.

What will it take to get CF to allow 0.5 increments in Zoom levels. Quite likely the single thing I miss most about the betas.

I'd like to see .5 all the way down to .1 added.

Yes, it's a client setting.
