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

1. Sets default rotation angle to 45 degrees.
2. Enables free camera rotation while holding down Q and E keys (in analog mode, see hotkeys).
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.
2. Key bindings: XComInput.ini.
3. Camera settings: XComTacticalInput_FreeCameraRotation.ini and XComCamera.ini.
4. Instructions and examples on key bindings: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/616359783/392183857632885222/
5. Instructions and examples on zoom settings: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/616359783/392183857632918975/

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.

Hi, with WotC the mod doesn't work anymore.. :'(
I'm trying to find this Alternate Mod Launcher you guys are talking about, but can't find it.. where is it?

EDIT: I found it: https://github.com/X2CommunityCore/xcom2-launcher

I did see people were talking about a patch changing mod loading rules. but I'm not 100% sure. Try that alternative loader, might help if that's the issue.

Yes all map camera mods worked fine until about a year ago. Tried AML which is a great mod in itself, TYVM. But still can't get the camera to rotate less than 90 degrees :(

Cleaning up ini files might help. I haven't been playing XCOM for a long time, but I did test the mod with WotC somewhere around its release and it worked.

Haven't been able to get any Camera mod for maps to work for a year or more now :steamsalty: Guess I have to uninstall all mods and rebuild from scratch to find the culprit that is whacking it

I'll give the AML a try and see if it solves it, thx :steamsunny:

Try the Alternate Mod Launcher, link below, 2K's launcher's a bit busted.

Man... I am seriously dying a slow agonizing death without this mod, ever since I got the WotC DLC, it has stopped working for me :steamsad:
