I cannot live without Strategic Zoom/Mega Map/Iris overview anymore

Postby Yakhont » Wed 17 Jun 2015 17:25

I got Grey Goo because well Steam Sales any I found I cant hotkey to different parts of the map so well.

I just dont feel confortable with the flow of observing the map and switching between the main view and the minimap.

Does anyone else feel this way? I certainly will get use to it agin but feel this is a step back, and probably will not get AoA

Playing C&C feels like slamming my face against the monitor these days.

You adapted to what should have been the next benchmark in RTS style games instead of forcing yourself to prepare for its non adaptation across the genre and thus left yourself open and empty whenever these games dont grant you a strong command and control interface.

I constantly try and scroll back when I play other games. 1500+ hours of Wargame have engrained me.

The AoA camer module looked like it was the same as Wargames, so if AoA is released with no zoom, it can probably be modded to be like Wargame again. I did not test it yet though.

but the AoA fanboys say the camera zoom is fine and that it would ruin the design intent if you zoomed out more :-(

If the design intent would be ruined by a wargame-style camera, the design intent is stupid.
