Summary0020993: Enemy/Ally strengths and planet names not shown when Galaxy map zoomed out
DescriptionZooming out on the galaxy map makes all text disappear except for the currently selected planet name. Would like to see troop strengths and (optionally) view all planet names. This worked well in the AIW Classic application
TagsNo tags attached.

So this is actually intentional. The map shows different stuff depending on your zoom level. If you zoom out all the way the names and numbers would tend to blur together (but you can hold own control to see the names anyway).

Yep, this is something you can customize to taste, and it will get further work done on it. But in general it is assumed that the galaxy maps are now too large to fit on one screen entirely. It just baaaarely fit in the first game, and prevented all sorts of cool map types from being possible.

That said, I am not a fan of the feeling of the galaxy map interface in general in the second game, so it's going to get a lot more love. But going back to the extremely constraining style of the first game isn't in my plans. That was like trying to make a galaxy in a shoebox, it was awful and one of the things Keith and I were most excited to move away from in the sequel. The interface here just hasn't caught up yet, that's definitely for sure.

Well I kinda miss having my whole galaxy overview like before, but hopefully the changes you guys are planning will give me a similar experience
