Default The MAP!!!!

November 14th, 2011, 16:05
So the UI is not completely great.
The inventory lighting up on mouse-hover - I hated that in W2 and still hate it here. Esc to close menus would be more in intuitive (why would I want to open the save menu when I'm in the middle of the inventory?) but you can get used to it, eventually.

But the MAP - yuk. Is all that cloud there so they don't have to put in something that looks like settlements/towns? Instead they have these obscure icon things.
I'd like to be able to put my custom marker anywhere not just on what they think I need to get to. Like my current quest for instance. (cf the compass has lots of the same icon for different quests how does that help?)
Dragging the map would seem to be a natural thing to have but no they have this (slow) scroll to the edge thing.
Update:
OK http://www.bethblog.com/index.php/20…pping-mapping/ that's me told so why can't I zoom into this detail?
Skills - navigation hell.

Nothing broken just frustrating.
