More Zoom out, again (and/or more tilt)

Postby Grateful Dead » Fri 11 Sep 2015 03:00

The lack of zoom out or tilt to benefit slower computers does not make sense. It seems that is a step backwards. Or, in other words, players with better graphics are punished. Hmmm?

The game is perfect, but for the zoom out -- it is hard to enjoy the graphics without seeing the entire battle -- I can only view a few units at a time, and for me, what is the point of having large armies if only a small percent can be viewed. In sum, the zoom is a deal breaker for me.

As a fierce supporter of getting it zoomed out more from the initial (june) beta, I have to say I think they've done a lot to bring it to a healthier level. I'm not saying that I'm opposed to your proposition, only that it's much better than it used to be.

I would be happy if they at least added some tilt/pitch to the current zoom level - Total War arena has hardly any zoom out but gets away with it due to the tilt - makes a HUGE difference.

I mean, they are using tilt in all the steam store page screenshots. At least give us the game as you advertised it, Eugen.

For a C&C Generals and Act of War spiritual successor the current camera is good. Only thing missing is replacing infantry white arrow icons with unique ones based on class of infantry.

Yes, the limit needs to be higher. And yes, satellite mode is useless.

I still play 95% in satellite mode, because I just see more what's coming. The beta patch for greater zoom was fine, but you also don't see that much. A greater zoom or a camera pitch (which I would prefer) would be very fine. So I could pitch the camera and have more range (depended on FOW).

You see same as in other classic RTS games now. Yes Sat view shows even more but you cannot micro in it.

unless they make the zoom out option as zoomed out as satellite view, I will play 95% of the time in the satellite view, lucky for me I dont mind.

The view is fine. It's comparable to other aaa rts games such as sc 2, coh, zero hour etc.
