I was playing on a 2048*2048 map and felt the need of the feature presented in this *very first* patch: an extension of zooming out capability of the main viewport (relying only on the smallmap was not convenient enough for me).
This patch has been initially done on top of the 1.1 branch of OpenTTD. I tried to reuse a maximum of already existing code. As I like very much how the smallmap presents things, I borrowed its "owners" (with heightmap activated) rendering method. It is obviously far from perfect but it runs quite smoothly on my computer and should help big map players.
I hope this kind of feature will find its way into trunk one day
1/ Zoom out any viewport up to 128X
To get an overview, no need to switch to the smallmap constantly: just use your mousewheel (works with main viewport and extraviewports too).

NB: Bridges and tunnels support is glitchy.
When you move a viewport (not in map mode), the other viewports (in map mode) will show its location.
Note that blending option is enabled only for 32bpp blitter!
If you are tired of the "click on industry, read info then close window" routine, this is for you!
To ease cooperative games, this is a tool to draw lines on viewports.
By default, a plan is visible only by its owning company but you can advertise the plan and make it public (public appears in blue).
Double click on a plan in the list expand its lines.
The selected line or plan is drawn in red.
The Delete button affects the selected item in the list.
Understanding where a vehicle goes is very important.
On a big map, there are too many towns to get quickly the relation between name and location.
So to make things easier, the route steps are pointed out.
And if you want more, it can show the path and conditional branching.
(there is an expert setting to chose dashed or plain lines)
All options are found in "Display options" and its "Viewport Map" subpage.
Also, don't forget to increase the maximum zoom out level!
