But I noticed the grid in the RTS interface turns into a homogenous blue mass if you zoom out far enough. What about every n-th line being a different colour (and painted after/overwriting the blue ones, so it will not be drowned in blue when zoomed out)?
Repeat for really large views with yet other colors. Say,
Also, I think Asmodai's ideas have merit too.
- every 10th line in green and overwriting blue when things becone crowded
- every 100th line in yellow and overwriting green
- every 1000th line in red and overwriting yellow
3ds max does the 10:1 thing, but with the same gridlines to avoid visual confusion. You could easily put a scale bar or a google maps-like zoom bar though.
