Topic: Map Overview goes black

The map overview becomes black when you move it close of the galactic edge.
While this doesn't really matter for the lower zooms, the higher ones get pretty much broken.

64x isn't that much of a problem here, but I imagine that folks living close to the galactic edge think the zoom is broken.
256x is broken unless you move the map to the galactic middle. Also, moving to the right in this zoom distorts the picture.

Re: Map Overview goes black

Do you see a loader when zooming out?

Re: Map Overview goes black

At 64x, a loader appears and then after a while the map loads, but upon zooming to 256x, there is no loader.

Re: Map Overview goes black

I think the issues is the sheer size of the map being used.   i get the issue too, but it will load after awhile, sometimes a long while.   I personally don't think it's a bug so much as a dire need to optimize that part of the game.   way too much info/detail being send to players for no real reason.

The picture is huge, If you have slow connection to US servers you'll have to wait a bit. But i agree we have to optimize it.
