Farther Zooming Out in Live Mode

This mod allows you to zoom out farther in live mode, without being limited to a set distance or map view distance.

You can now zoom all the way to map view distance without the map view marker popping up. Once you reach map view distance, the marker shows up. Map View is now a bit higher, too.

Note that if you move the camera angle down (to see the horizon) while zoomed out really far, stuff in the distance disappears like in Create-A-World. This is normal. If you want to take far-out pictures at extreme angles, use the free camera.

This edits the Camera XML and is probably not compatible with most camera mods.


  1. Why are there magenta map tags for cars?

  2. Thanks, this is very useful. I wonder where those are for too.. Is that from another mod you have in game?

  3. With Awesome Mod a magenta map tag means it's an abandoned car. I suppose he's been decorating his neighborhood with abandoned cars?

  4. Thank you so much! I didn't even realize this was a problem until I went in-game earlier today and was given a headache by how limited the zoom was. Awesome work!

  5. Thanks! But do you know it doesn't work in subhoods? But still good though.
