so i've noticed something slightly lacking in every preview i've read or seen, and that is any acknowledgment of the map and how it works. i'm curious as to how it navigates, if the arrow cursor is the only way to move the map like it was in oblivion or if you can move the map without the arrow and zoom in and out like in fallout. i really hope they don't go back to the oblivion map, i truly despised it and it stops me from going back and playing again. the only time i saw the map, they just used the cursor to move around and i'm a bit nervous.
and left out completely is any thought of a local map description. i hope they didn't remove it, it was the only way i got out of many caves and metro tunnels in oblivion and fallout respectively, but they've said that they're putting rivers and stuff to navigate caves so they might've just removed the local map to save time and resources. since the world map is basically a satellite view of skyrim, could the local map be a birds eye view?
