InFlight Map Zoom + /- Mod

Recommended Posts

To Someone ,who dont knowd yet

 

I use a modified inflight map zoom settings, cause I like to see all waypoints, my staus etc...

 

You need to SFP1 E Extract utility download, and install it !

 

1. Open your SFP1/WOV/WOE/FE // Flightfolder

2. Run the SFP1 E program ,and extract the Flightengine.ini to Flight folder

3. SAVE this (rename to OriginalFlightengine or put an new BackupFlightengine folder... )

4. Open and Search the MapSettings and modify tis lines:

 

[MapSettings]

MapMaxSize=1000000

MapMinSize=2000

MapInitSize=100000 (you can modify, but I use this)

MapScaleRate=5.0

ZoomControl=CAMERA_ZOOM_CONTROL

 

Remember SAVE IT TO FLIGT folder LIKE : Flightengine .ini

 

ENJOY !

 

Marry Christmas To Evrybody !

Thanks. This is good stuff everybody should know how to do.

 

My current settings...

 

[MapSettings]

MapMaxSize=2000000

MapMinSize=10000

MapInitSize=500000

MapScaleRate=100.0

ZoomControl=CAMERA_ZOOM_CONTROL

 

 

If I recall, my map scale rate allows very fast zooming, although as you zoom out, the framerate drops horribly.

I guess I should reduce my mpa min size, but its good for long range intercepts.

This is good info, thanks alot.

Made the map much more useable, it's not possible to pan it in-game is it? (always centered)

And perhaps to show all active units including enemy planes (for mission design/test purposes)

Its working here, you know the map zoom changes.

 

SF1 2006 and Win~7

 

Maybe save your Flightengine file somewhere and extract it again and make the changes again.
