Allow disabling the auto zoom

Post#1 » 23 May 2018, 15:25

The auto zoom in game is surely the result of a lot of work, but I personally find it more enraging than anything else. Could an option to disable it permanently be added?

What is the problem exactly?
Maybe it could be improved.

I just don't like it as it moves when I like a fixed view. I can disabled it in every game but I'd like to disable it once for all.

Yep, it definitely very exosting for eyes now to handle all this rapid scene movement. I usually finding myself zooming out every game just to prevent auto zoom. It would be great to limit view change frequency or make it a bit smoother. Allowing to disable auto-zoom would also be a great option.

Yeah, auto-zoom is a problem. Especially when you click a bot that you want to see it's ai, the zoom function zooms to the point where you cant even tell what it's shooting at or being shot by.

I have two main complaints:
- Overzoom--there are few situations I do not want to see all bots either shooting or being aimed at, and even resource gatherers are interesting late-game.
- Motion--in some situations it can pan/zoom excessively, making it hard to follow even the framed action. My first thought would be to (further?) limit the peak rate at which it zooms in, as slowing that is never going to hide action.

Some of my problems would be obviated by better replay controls--without a scrub bar and (optionally) faster fast-forward I usually want to see everything in one pass (even when closely analyzing behavior), rather than seeing a more cinematic view and then studying interesting/previously offscreen action.

Could you also add the "disable it permanently"? At least for those players that like a fixed view.

Yay! I know it is a lot of work, I appreciate, but it is not for me.
