Description

Just the Camera Mod from the now defunct Relic News, for anyone who has never added any mod that adds it. This will enable you to zoom out much further than originally in vanilla DOW 1 and makes it much easier to see the battlefield.

Does this work for multiplayer with people that do not have it?

Awesome! thanks so much for this :)

Only one thing. As I zoom out further than normal the top of the screen starts to become clouded out and you begin to see less of the map where it is in the top part. Not like fog of war but like the filed of view is shrinking. Any thoughts?

thanks again!

Been a long time. For those of you talking about the clouds and who are disappointed about it, that has to do with map skyboxes which this does not change. This addon is not meant for you to watch everything from a very far off distance like the UA mod. This mod is simply designed so you aren't way too close to the screen like in the standard game: Not super far away from the screen, but less close to the screen. The base game is a really really small screen which is painful. This addon is not meant for you to see the whole map at once. In short, this addon works best at its medium range, not its fully extended one.

If you get a longer camera like the one from UA it will be even worse since again, the maps have not been adjusted to accommodate the camera, and you will zoom way into the distance and see nothing but clouds. That is why I chose to share this lesser distant camera as it is because with the UA camera you will back up into absolute nothingness. Hope that clears things up, and I am happy for those of you who find this mod helpful. For those of you who do not like, well I hope you can find some other resource that yields the desired effect.
