Confirmed to work with WotC, for more info see below...

1. Sets default rotation angle to 45 degrees.

3. Enables free camera zoom while holding down T and G keys (in analog mode, see hotkeys).
4. Enables free camera mode controlled by mouse movement (Alt + mouse).
5. Allows to pitch camera with [ and ] keys.
6. Fully ini configurable.

1. Alt + mouse - free camera mode.
2. Ctrl + F1 - reset camera to default view.
3. Ctrl + F2 - switch between free and fixed rotation/zoom.
4. Ctrl + F3 - toggle free camera.
5. [ and ] - pitch camera.

1. ini files are located under your [Path To Steam Library]\XCOM 2\XComGame\Mods\FreeCameraRotation\Config or [Path To Steam Library]\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\616359783\Config.

I don't own the DLC myself, but here is some useful info from other players:
Can also confirm this works fine with WotC. The only minor "incompatibility" is that the mod is flagged with a warning in the mod launcher.
Try a fresh install (unsubscribe to the mod first) and open up mygames/xcom2 (and the WoTC folder too) find engine.ini and delete all instances of "modclassoverrides", locate the workshop folder in your steam installation, "\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\616359783" delete the folder (the one ending in 783) then resubscribe to this mod. It worked for me

NOTE: mods do not disable achievements in XCOM2.

DISCLAIMER: I can't guarantee any of my mods are 100% bugs free, so use them at your own risk. I do play with all of them and I will release fixes or at least workarounds if bugs/problems are discovered.

ZoomedDistanceFromCursor and DistanceFromCursor in XComCamera.ini.

Yeah, that adjusts the pitch not the height of the centre point.
prokolyo Jan 20 @ 4:53pm 
Did you try the [ and ] keys?
AshHill07 Jan 20 @ 3:06pm 
Is there a way to raise the centre point of the camera? When fully zoomed in it always focuses on my soldiers feet.

Better than the normal one.

I played a whole campaign with your mod but the had to reinstall everything from scratch and noticed that LW2 has similar functionality... Played a bit without your mod, but just put it back on because it adds several things that I had apparently gotten accustomed to. Thanks!

No, it isn't necessary for LW2.
prokolyo Dec 8, 2018 @ 10:54pm 
So is this mod actually necessary for LW2? Looks like the functionality is built-in there...

AFAIK one can either use the vanilla zoom values or have that overshooting for Reaper stealth checks.

In WotC, the camera always overshoots during reaper's stealth checks. Is there any workaround for this?
