Currently it seems that the most recent zoom level and
scroll position of the galaxy map is retained when the
player resigns and starts a new game, or if the player
loads a game from a save file. IMO it'd be better to
always reset the view to a standard medium-depth zoom,
centred over the centre of the galaxy, or one of the
player's planets / fleets. This is only really a
problem if you end a game zoomed in very close, then
load up another... sometimes this results in no stars
being visible on the screen without scrolling / zooming
out, which looks somewhat bad, imo.

    i agree that zoom lvl should be reset when loading a game,
    but i guess most player would be annoyed if they had to
    zoom in/out after pressing turn.

    I wasn't suggesting to reset zoom after ending a turn...
    (nor do I think this should be done, for the same reason you
    gave)

    The important thing is to reset the zoom level and scroll
    position when starting a *new* game.

    Whether loading a game resets the view to default (like
    starting a new game) or whether the save file includes zoom
    and scroll settings isn't so important. It might be nice to
    save zoom and scroll settings in a save file, and load them
    with the game data, but this certainly isn't a high priority.

    I don't know why i had turn processing in mind. I must have
    read something about it elsewhere.
