[Suggestion] Zoom to cursor

Postby alx » Wed Sep 26, 2012 5:25 pm

Not a bug, but first thing I noticed...

I'd love it if the zoom/unzoom function would not be centered on the center of the screen, but instead on the cursor (like in Supcom for exemple). This way there's almost no need for scrolling. Feels very natural once you get used to it. If possible, at least make it an option.

Thanks!

I agree as well... It's a very nice feature in a game. Makes the gameplay more fluid

I also agree, I was presuming this would happen when I started playing - when it didn't it just seemed wrong somehow.

So +1 for this.

Yep came here to post same, it's a nice feature generally but really feels as though it is missing from this game.

Yup, that sounds like a grand idea and definitely support it.

Looks like we could do with a +1 feature on the forums to save all the "me too!" posts! :)

Zoom to cursor seems natural for this game every time I would zoom in on my inmates I would say this would be awesome if it zoomed to cursor

Think also so, but eventually trigger via options, some people don't like zoom to cursor

Agreed. A zoom mode option that allows you to select Zoom to centre / Zoom to cursor would be best.

Created the same topic in the general forum yesterday evening after playing the intro.
It really feels weird to me when zooming to center and then moving the viewport with the arrow keys.
