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.

Not possible because of the game itself, unfortunately.

i would love to have 1.5x zoom as 1 is too far out 2 is too far in.

Yes, the engine was changed years ago to prevent this and mods can't touch that stuff. The original version of this mod had fractional zoom levels, but it was removed when the game was updated.

So it's engine limitations that prevent fractional zoom? What files are related to the engine?

Thanks for making this. Zooming it into 5x makes me feel like I'm playing Terraria(Since I play Terraria zoomed in)plus I get more consistent 55 to 60fps on much more frequent basis. So thank you for making this. It greatly enhanced my gameplay experience.

@goldbrains No, it's not possible to lower the zoom below 1, which is as far out as it lets you. Hardcoded unfortunately.

does this allow me to zoom out further than normal ?

Is there also any mods/ways to change zoom levels on the run, without opening settings every time?
I know that I can center camera not on my character with ctrl, but that's not handy enough

@Toph Nothing has changed with Starbound, and it still works. Try restarting your Steam client to get everything to update if it isn't behaving.

does this still work? It's still just 2 to 4 zoom for me
