Taking into account the typos I made, your statement about “what you can see on your monitor” puts my point far more succinctly than I managed; and your response is far more positive than I anticipated. But, if it’s feasible to do the zoom-in job, bring it on, say I.

Being able to zoom from .5ly out from system barycenter of a multiple and follow it all the way down to synchronous orbit, with the planet below you.... oh hell yeah, I'd love it. I'd have to sock away money for a new system to run it, but I'd love it, sure.

However, I'd think it would be MUCH simpler, possibly even *feasible*, to put into the right-click menu of a given planet an option to view the surface. Use the same code that the blazon generator already accesses, generate a view and either bring up a new window like the system display does or replace the sector display with it. The trick with that may be getting it to save that fractal globe, so it'll be the *same* surface next time you click on it.
