If you are seeing it stuck at 60fps (or whatever rate your monitor refreshes
at) the reason why it doesnt change when you zoom out is because the game is
actually being throttled down by waiting for vsync.  IE games will often
only go as high as your monitor refresh rate.

vsync is a good thing and without it the graphics would look bad.  But, if
you want to see what FPS you are really getting, open up scripts/config.lua
and set VsyncOn to 0 and then run the game.

It'll be a higher number, and that number will get lower as you zoom out.
