Summary0021744: Icon scaling and border revert (or option)
DescriptionI liked how readable icons were even before 0.897, even with the map zoomed out a fair bit. I found that it stayed readable at the zoom level where I'm typically playing.

Now I find myself squinting, and I don't see the point of making icons so tiny even when fully zoomed in, when there is a massive amount of free space to show them.
It's also abundantly clear that those icons were not meant to be shown that small, because you can't distinguish all the symbols on them - particularly flagrant with GCAs. A waste of good art if you ask me.

Personally, I'd like the changes to icons (and their borders as well, actually) to be flat out reverted. Showing them this tiny should be reserved for when there's an actual icon overflow.

But barring that, can we please have a slider to determine the size of icons and how many are shown under each planet?
TagsNo tags attached.

Cheers. :)

* Added a new "Icon Scale On Galaxy Map" setting on the galaxy map camera section of the settings menu.
** Description: Depending on the size of your monitor, you may prefer the icons on the galaxy map (planets and otherwise) to be larger or smaller. The default is 1.5 since smaller than that was feeling a bit too tiny for anyone not on huge monitors.
** Note: changing this doesn't undo what things were done in the prior release. It's still scaling the planet and its icons as a group, which is now more efficiently-packed and sized better RELATIVE to each individual part, regardless of what scale you choose. So it's kind of the best of both worlds.
