Free camera view mod?

I'd like to reopen my simming blog and post a bunch of 3.0 screens but am having some issues since I can't pull the camera back or adjust position. Is there a mod that will will allow me to float around the battlefield for some action shots?

Obviously something like this wouldn't work for MP without limitations, but is it possible in general to create a mod like this?

Thanks for your time!

If you run the scenario from the test mode in the mission editor, it will open up several possibilities.

Nice, I will check it out.

I don't remember if we implemented this for PE users in general, but pause the mission while in the free-floating camera view when testing the scenario from within the Mission Editor. Then try and see if you can move the camera while the scenario is paused. If that is possible you can make several screenshots of the same scene from different angles.

Alt+H will suppress most of the HUD overlay, which probably makes for nicer screenshots. Plus, while paused you can still open the Alt+G dialog box to adjust the Graphics settings while the scenario is paused. :)

(I think).

Shane,

There are two ways to achieve the desired effect you are looking for:

1 - In replay mode you can easily free roam the battlefield by right clicking on the map and selecting VIEW.

2 - In the mission editor you can, at any time, click on the map and press VIEW to free roam the battlefield.
