Post feature RSS Direct unit control

Our game had inherited Men of War series option to directly control every unit at your disposal. That feature is one click away: you can either click on an enemy unit to attack it or directly control aim and fire.

It is very useful to sometimes aim your soldier's rifle or heavy MG with your mouse. AI cannot always resolve tasks that require precision. That is why you have an option to take direct control. How does it work?

Simple: clicking appropriate keyboard button will turn mode on. You can use your movement keys to move selected unit around and use your mouse to shoot. Important thing is that you can do this for ALL available units. Furthermore, camera will follow your unit around (and can be easily adjusted) so, all you have to do is to be accurate and precise. This option is especially cool in multiplayer matches, when your soldier armed with anti-tank launcher kneels down in an ambush, waiting for an enemy tank.

I wish the camera would act like in a Third Person Shooter. Not have to press the middle mouse button to change the camera direction.

Do you think you might be able to add it to the game?

We can think of it and try. It is a good suggestion, if there is a window of opportunity by the programmer it should be added as it would improve gameplay.
