Map is very squeezed and it makes it unusable to read. Names are overlapping each other. It must be able to zoom in and out to read. I'm using 480x800 screen resolution. Can someone post a picture of the map?

Hi Almaz, and welcome to the forums.
You can find a map at the Dangerous wiki, here:
dangerous.wikia.com . . .

As you are the first to report this problem, can you give some details?
E.g. which map(s) exactly (galaxy and/or system map), what device/computer you play on, operating system, etc.

I'm using Dangerous HD 1.1.0 latest version from Google Play, even in previous version it had the same problem. I'm using Android 2.7, 1ghz CPU, 480x800 LCD display. If you check the comments on Google Play, I'm not the only one. Map is just impossible to read. Imagine text layers being zoomed in and all the names are overlapping. It is impossible to see which name belongs to which system. I've been playing for the last hour and I can't even get to Bonju and Loopso. I'm just guessing where to go and so far I can't get there.

I'm playing using android too and yes the names do over lap on the galaxy map making it hard to read but I wouldn't say impossible. I'v noticed that the names of the systems on the map correspond to the point above them if that helps you any for now.

Thanks for the feedback, you two.
I will bring this to the developers' attention, maybe they can rework the map for smaller screens.
However, this would result in at least one additional version that needs to maintained. So, to avoid this, what do you think: would a zoomable map work on smaller screens? I play on an iPad2 myself, so I cannot really comment on how things are on smaller screens with lower resolution.

I'd be ok with it as long as its more readable.

This is on our To Do list: make the galaxy and local maps zoomable, and also provide more interactivity. Like being able to select a location and seeing an info block. Also using the map as a warp destination with automatic handling of intervening stargates.

Currently, the galaxy map is more readable on the larger or higher resolution screens.

hmmm yeah zooming is nice but maybe try having the text in an actual box that way for example the background colour of the text can be a colour of high contrast to the actual text. hmmm let me explain it better for example you have the picture in the background and its nice and colourful but sometimes it's the same colour as the text. I think where ever text appears it should appear in a white rectangle and the text is black. it's not just the maps even when dog fighting in the early game sometimes I think I'm attacking a pirate but it turns out I've been tailing a sola fide ship and then they all go after me.

oh and it would be cool to have the wormholes show up as dotted lines or something so that in the galaxy map you can see the newly discovered alternate paths when you use the scan probe to uncover a wormhole. without a visual aid I find the wormholes often fall into disuse, only veterans of the game remember where there are wormholes scattered about
