  1. If you also use the Person Map mod make sure you have installed v9.x.0.5 or v9.1.0.6a
  2. Download the appropriate zip file as shown in the summary in the upper right corner of the page. NOTE that I host these zip files on my own server. That way I can count the number of downloads for each mod I made and estimate the relevance of such mod.
  3. Extract the files from the downloaded zip file (1 cfg file) into the mods folder.
  4. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.
  5. Go to Admin >> Setup >> Configuration >> Map Settings.
  6. Set the new option Allow zooming with mouse wheel to your liking. # Don't forget to press the Save button.
  7. If the mod doesn't behave as expected, please clear your browser's cache as a first measure:
    1. Log out of your TNG website
    2. Clear your browser's cache
    3. Close and reopen your browser
