@rorovant: I didn’t want to be rude. My point is that the “scale” is bound to your imagination. In RRT2 you had maps covering the entire world, you would see Paris, Berlin, a huge ocean and New York etc. At the same time you had maps with only one country showing more details of each city and sometimes even maps of 1 state.
That is the case. The scale of the map is bound to the zoom. You can fit the entire world or just one country as you wish, depending on the amount of details you want to show.
