Question, what way do you like moving the camera around in an RTS?
I wanted to get around to asking everyone this, but while booting up my mod/game BattleGrid, I have come across a interesting dilemma with RTS camera movement.
for every movement function rotate via mouse, rotate Via keyboard they depend on a system for each one. some getting more complex then others
and well, I don't want to invest in something everyone will hate
as it stands I'm using WASD to move the camera and Q&E to rotate (R to reset)
With BattleGrid being somewhat of an RPG single hero RTS I feel I need to mimic controls from games like DotA 2
but with that said, I feel like i would be missing something in this area and would like to deliver what people are more
inclined to use as each style will be its own independent system layered on top of each other
Feel free to share your thoughts and strategies, and what you like best.
