Request: Ability to zoom out term-6 (overhead view)

I really like the new dark tileset on 4.2.1, but I end up playing it at 1x1 multiplier so I can see more area. I was thinking it would be great if we could zoom out the term-6 overview (or set it to premade values in options) to make it show more area. Would look nice with this tileset at 3x2, and the overview off to side, or on a second monitor, for quick checks on what is unexplored.

This would be way more useful IMO than the compressed map 'M' when using a tileset. With ASCII, I don't need something like this, I don't even use term-6. But this tileset is sexy enough for this change. Also 'L' isn't as useful at 3x2 either, because it's zoomed in a bit much. But you get to see glorious pixel details at 3x2!

I mostly play on now because I like the camaraderie. But I used to like playing with tiles, and when I play with my kids I use tiles. And I can confirm that the overhead view is useless at present. Maybe I don't know how to use it, but I've tried. I'm not sure what the best solution is. I guess allowing the user to choose a tile multiplier for that window separately from the main window. Or maybe use the exsting "M"ap feature and put it in the overhead view window.

Zoomed out overview would be ideal. Compare these images. You can clearly see the unexplored areas on the overview rather than the Map. I was able to do this by setting the tileset to 1x1, which gives me a bit of zoom on overview, but looses detail on the main window. Lookin for best of both worlds.
