Been playing around with my map a bit, and I've been wondering which map people prefer, the full-screen map or the minimized.
Can't do anything while the full-screen map is open, so I always keep it smaller.
I use both I guess? Unless I'm understanding the question wrong.
I keep it minimized all the time. It actually bothers me when it's full, especially in BGs.
Minimized because I like to be able to walk while looking at the map (without running into something and getting stuck).
Full screen, Makes it feel more realistic for me.
Allows me to look at the large scale map area, and zoom right into settlements etc.
you can also set it to full screen or stretched minimap. Although I very rarely switch to full screen map anymore.
minimized! it's nice being able to see where I'm going whilst still actually moving !
Minimized especially if I have a quest in the area otherwise it's pretty much the same size.
