How do you access the settings? As i cant find them in the game apart from the maps.
Everything on this mod works besides the expenses, but they're stuffed into the default tabs instead of their own

(part 2)
The one and only reason I'm typing out all this is, a few friends got AoW3 during the free weekend same as myself, but they had much less patience and 2 actually *REMOVED* the "free" game from their library because they simply hated the camera THAT much.

As someone who knows nothing about AoW franchise as a whole, I doubt that the camera controls and/or rigging can be altered in this game, but I figured I would at least ask if you "think it's possible", and if you were to give an answer such as "I think you can, but I won't" then I would go into the mod tools myself and at least attempt to make the change despite having a rather high chance of breaking my install due to my terrible habit of not making backups

As I'm new to AoW, this mod is helping me to become accustomed to how empire building and unit training functions, with the various options for income and unit expense, etc, but it does miss one thing, that I as a total noob to PC Only RTS games have been looking for.

To explain, after searching through the workshop for a while I can't find anything that alters the camera rigging.
What I mean is, the camera moves as if it's first person view, which for the 'low to ground' camera is perfectly fine, but for the higher "birds eye" angles I find myself looking away from battle when all I' want to do is rotate the camera around what I'm looking at, as would happen in any third-person game or "consoleized" RTS games like Halo Wars that rotate camera around whatever is center screen.

(part 1, because over character limit by 500)

You mean observer mode where the camera follows units during enemy turns? Just press O.
Råb!d Jul 6 @ 8:41am 
I'd like it if we could disable the "camera follow", which is super annoying with bigger games. Plus it gives me a terrible headache.
[ᐰ] Frostburn❄ Jun 15 @ 3:58pm 
Aw, a bit sad. Maybe someone will tell us one day, I really miss those AoW 1 and 2 map sizes tbh.
Samurai190  [author] Jun 15 @ 3:29pm 
That's actually something I wish to know myself too. Alas, I never found anything about the matter.
[ᐰ] Frostburn❄ Jun 15 @ 1:39pm 
Weird question, but is it possible to somehow have those square map sizes available in the editor?
Setitus May 17 @ 6:40pm 
ok so i can get the maps to work but i cant get the extra setting options to work or even show up what am i doing wrong:steamsad:
