Good day commanders,
I posted a couple of new screenshots of the new 3D Zoom-in view at the Matrix CSME forum, and thought to post them here as well.
So without further ado, here's how the new 3D Zoom-in will be available in CSME 2.0, an then on all new CS games thereafter.
This is the French convoy in Algeria, from The Long Road Home. They've got some distance to cover, here.
And here's the Jordanian tankers, from Picnic at Tel al Ful.
After trying out various options the best outcome was achieved with scaling the terrain to 150% while using the unit miniature models 100% size for that view. The old 100% has now units that are scaled down a bit to achieve the same scale as here. As a result, the units are spread out more evenly, even when you have lots of units stacked to same hex.
Now, securing that hamlet looks more like a proper tactical challenge, don't you think?
Right click at the images and have them open in a new tab to see them at full size.
