Single zone node path?

I can't for the life of me figure out how to make the pathing feature map out the resource nodes in a single zone. I've tried locking the map to that zone but it will still create a path for nodes outside it. I don't want to do it manually, of course, the point would be to optimize the path.

The route generator simply makes a single line connecting visible nodes, disregarding impassable terrain. Are you sure you just want that, but for the current moused zone? Because if you're just mining rich nodes you'll on average just see three lines for a zone, so I don't know how much help that is compared to without.

If you want a detailed terrain-aware path like the rich nodes' dashed lines or the world completion routes, those were manually drawn, and I am not willing to spend hours making them for each zones for every single nodes.

Yes, the single line is exactly what I want. I use the permanent nodes and the possible ones, so I just want to make sure I visit all probably places in a sane/ish route, for the currently moused over zone.

Here's a screenshot of a manual one I did but that exemplifies what I want done automatically: https://puu.sh/vCsF8/7ebdf5655f.jpg

I've added zone-specific route generation. Right click on the map: "Zone" > "Draw resource route". If you're not viewing the Resource Nodes section, it will ask you to go there first. You may also trigger the zone-specific generation by right clicking the button.

If you want to set a new starting point (which has been fixed now), middle click on a path pin and a new path will be generated from that pin.
