3) The toolbar at the bottom of the interface now has 45 small icons on it that (probably because of advancing age) I can't read. I can't find where this can be toggled back to the toolbar that I had previously which only contained half that many larger icons.
Not trying to be glib here, but you have at least three more options:
Lower your screen res to 1280x1024. This will make the icons bigger, without them auto-wrapping onto two icon bar lines.
Get a bigger monitor. (I did that for my wife, who has trouble seeing the small stuff. Easy for me to say, not everybody can afford a new monitor, sure.)
Although I have never used it, there is magnifying glass software that -- with a mouse click? -- magnifies the area under the cursor.
We hope one day to implement a third level of zoomed-in 2D. I myself would play more 2D, maybe even prefer it over 3D (for monster scenarios, and when Warhorse finishes his 2D unit icons project), with bigger hexes and a larger 2D map display. For me, it's not poor eyesight; it's more a mental thing. I just don't like playing on a smallish map in a corner of my display screen. So when I get a hankering to play 2D, I play the game on one of my systems with a lower screen res. At 1680x1050 res, 4-key 2D is not bad, not too bad at all.
