The default minimum zoom level on the main map did not allow much of the map to be viewed at once, increasing the need for scrolling and making it more difficult to judge your location relative to other map markers. This tweak changes the minimum zoom value, allowing the map to be zoomed out much further.

The minZoom value is set on line 1446 of the \scripts\game\gui\menu\mapMenu.ws file.

The mod file sets this value to 0.7f, which is enough to see all of Velen/Novigrad and nearly all of Skellige at 1440. Simply change this value to change the zoom limit (lower number zooms further out).

Installation:
Extract modMainMapZoom to your \The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\Mods directory.

If you already have mods installed in this directory that contains a scripts folder, copy the mapMenu.ws file into \game\gui\menu\ under that (creating those additional directories, if they do not already exist).

If you already have a mod installed containing the mapMenu.ws file, simply edit line 1446 of that existing file to change the value.

UPDATE
The modMainMapZoom_150815_1818 version changes the initial zoom value to be further out than default and unlocks unlimited zoom (both in and out). This version also enables unrestricted fast travel.
