Implemented: (City) Ability to zoom out further

Proposal

Add an extra 1-2 zoom settings.

Reason
It gets annoying dragging the map about to collect or reshuffle buildings and when moving buildings losing the move function and having to reselect it.

I have searched and found no other ideas relating to the zoom function.

I'm on a laptop, with no scroll wheel - is there any way that I can get this to work for me?

Not sure why inno doesn't not provide more zoom options...my best guess is that it will take up more of of the server resources.
there are lot of games that have much better zoom functionality similar to google maps instead of just two zoom levels.

The mobile version certainly has more than just two zoom levels, even if you can't see the whole city at once...

There is no necessity for it. It's possible to zoom in and out of a page. To do this hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the wheel on your mouse up to zoom in or down to zoom out.
That's all good and well but ever noticed how small the chat window gets when you zoom to say 75%, I have to wear glasses as it is, don't need to have to get a magnifying glass as well ........

+1 - Maybe the two existing levels and a "Bird's-Eye" button that takes us all the way out. That should be enough

I can not support the haters here. The CTRL+Scrolling won't do a thing here cuz it ****s up the graphics. Also, you don't have scroll on Android, do you. So yea, +1 for this idea!

Actually, we apparently have a far more flexible zoom on the mobile app - certainly more than two levels :P

Just wondering if the Devs have looked at this proposal, or even if it's gaining any momentum for that matter. Please implement it as those of us with poor eyesight and like to chat are getting headaches from trying to read the chat box.

Currently, there are only 4 players in favor of this proposal at the moment. You need to reach 20 before the idea is forwarded to the developers.

I like to take Screen Shots of my City when making major layout changes, so the function would be nice, even that there is options on some platforms to do. I have a folder called City History and it is fun to scroll through it and see the development.
