Everything has been fine and then, today, when I loaded my game the planets and ships appear only as icons in the zoomed out view no matter what my zoom level?
In the options menu there is a setting that controls this. I think it varies depending on which game (DL, DA, TA) you are playing, but look for something like "tactical zoom level".
Thanks - I think that fixed it - that is weird b/c I never adjusted that ?? But thanks!
