Put this in your startup folder. When you load a random map, it will start zoomed out tons. Just simply zoom in untill you get the amount you want. If you cannot see the map for some reason, zoom in untill you can.

What the hell does this mean?

I mean when you load a random map, you start zoomed out loads and you can zoom in and out loads.

I like what you've done only you should have set your initial zoom to about 60, not 1000 (all the way out) I edited the script and now it works like a charm.

You can just edit the zoom tons - lol don't be too harsh to me. I made it when I had just got the demo!

THANK YOU for putting this together for us. I've been wanting to zoom out more since the very first time I ever looked at AOE3. I had it on my list to ask in the forums if anybody'd knew a way to do that. So, no fooling, thanks a lot for posting this mod for the rest of us to use.
About the initial zoom out point ... like the others, I'm way out in space ... I thought I'd modify your mod so that I'd start at 60 that another player said was good, but I've not tet been able to open the .cfg file. (I'd hoped one of the special "game editors" done by the other players would open it, but no luck so far.)
If you've got a minute, would you tell me how to get into the .cfg file?
