UI element resizing
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Before Jets DLC you had the option to resize the GPS/minimap, which was very useful if you play on resolutions larger than 1080p or if you couldn't read it properly.
With the introduction of Jets DLC the GPS was changed to "right panel" and "left panel", these can display radar/map/ camera etc. but you can't resize them.
This makes them hard to read especially on higher resolutions.

This also means you can't see the entirety of the radar range, behind the vehicle there is a blind spot because it's cut off (see picture).

Hello.

We had a look at the radar and we added an option to resize the radar. You can try this in our development version of the game.

Regarding the blind spot I am afraid we can't do much about that.

Thank you!

I did see it on the dev changelog but I haven't had the chance to test it out yet, I'll do that as soon as I can!

As long as I can now actually read the radar I'm happy! :P

{F93786}It seems that only the right panel can be adjusted, left panel cannot.

Both panels must always have the same size, this is a limitation that we can't do much about. In the GUI layout editor works in such a way that you can only resize the right panel and the left is just adjusting to the rights size. Plus for it to show you need to restart the game.

Ohh, excuse me, I didn't restart the game.
Thanks for the quick reply!

No problem.

After changing the size and restarting my game, the left panel has disappeared from the layout editor and the left panel sits at a different height to the right one.

You can move the left panel independently. ;)

For it to move to your Custom layout go to Default layout and move the Left panel it will then move you to your Custom layout automatically.
