View Full Version : Camera Tweek

Ive been playing now for a few months and i really feel this game needs a better more user friendly camera navigation. weather it be a comfortable zoom in, zoom out, camera or the ability to navigate the camera with button presses maybe like you would steer a fps character with "W" ,"A" ,"S", "D". either way it would be nice to see a leap in comfortable camera control on a RTS genre.

You can set keys to control the camera in options. Default are the arrow keys.

this isn't just about camera control but how the camera interacts with the world. instead of having the camera stuck at a 3/4 bird's eye view it woudl b nice to have camera control a little closer to controls that are more user friendly with a lot more useability. an example that could compairable to how you navigate a camera in maya using a button trigger that would unlock a collection of camera controls anything from pan and zoom to focus and camera locks. this is a lot to ask but it would b nice to see a rts step up to the challenge of evolving its camera controls. for the most part ive seen the same camera fuctionality for the RTS genre for the past 10 years.

When you hold ^ you can pan the camera with your mouse, with the mousewheel you can zoom in, zoom out. What did you exactly suggested. It seems i do not understood your suggestion exactly. Because of your Post 1 i voted no. You should put the important information into the #1 post.
