Summary0003096: FOV discrepancy in briefing editor
DescriptionIn the briefing editor, the icons and ship labels are rendered using the correct FOV, so they're in the correct positions. However, the grid and ship models (or dots if models are disabled) are displayed using a slightly narrower FOV, resulting in ship labels not always being rendered where the ship is. The attached screenshot shows what this looks like.

This makes the briefing editor a bit awkward to use. If someone wants to select a ship, for example, that person must click on the ship's label, not the ship itself, which is in a different location.

Remember that the labels and icons are fine; it's everything else in the briefing editor, including the grid, that's being rendered with a too-narrow FOV.
Steps To ReproduceSimply start up FRED, go to the briefing editor, and notice how the ship is not where the label is.
Additional InformationThis bug appears to have been introduced sometime between 3.6.9 and the earliest 3.6.10 nightly that I could find (r4814).
TagsNo tags attached.

I recently noticed that the main editor view also has a similar FOV discrepancy, although it's probably not as bad (but should still be fixed).

I've noticed the same bug too. Never really thought about it but you're right, it's likely a difference in FOV rendering. Seems to be more severe on widescreen resolutions.

Yarn's PR fixes both the briefing FOV error as well as the main grid FOV error. :yes: Superb work.
