Strategic mode camera controls
« on: October 11, 2017, 03:07:57 PM »
I'm new to this game, so apologies if this is a stupid question, but is there a way to rotate the camera in strategic mode (F9)? I've tried every key and mouse combination I can think of but all I can do is pan and zoom.

I don't think you can, either. Also note how in Strategy Mode all the 3D aspect of the game is gone and all objects reside in one plane - SM simplifies the representation of the Sector, so it doesn't make much sense to be able to rotate the camera I guess? I'd imagine this is where the design philosophy behind that came from.

However, being able to rotate the camera around in Strategy Mode would be a feature I'd appreciate seeing in the game, also.

It's not planar, it's still 3d, as is clearly visible when panning or zooming the camera.
