+1 same issue with auto zoom in which is why I came here to see how this was doing for wotc since with the default zoom I can't always check LOS.

@Ed:
Very probably, check the LW 2 XComCamera.ini file to see if they alter the same value. See my previous post.

Ok, I fixed my issue just changing the defaultcamera.ini for WOTC. Here what I did in case someone is having the same issue and want a solution: http://steamcommunity.com/app/268500/discussions/0/1473095331511354152/

Forgot to mention, I am playign WOTC with no mods installed. I did already deleted all save games, , clean up ini files, removed workshop files from steam folder etc etc. Is very strange because I never had this on XCOM 2 before, the Zoom Out was always statying where I left it. I had to Zoom Out only once per tactical map.

Hi, sorry to ask here, but I am having an issue with WOTC Camera Zoom Out. When I Zoom Out (with G), the camera reset to the default Zoom In every time I kill an enemy, discover a pod, or throw a grande etc. I have to Zoom Out every bloody turn basically or after taking an action (ie. shooting at advent etc.).

Can someone please help me? I am getting mad having to press G every time. Thank you :steamhappy:

Should work fine with WoTC.

Steam\SteamApps\common\XCOM 2\XCom2-WarOfTheChosen\XComGame\Config\DefaultCamera.ini
[XComGame.X2Camera_LookAt]
ZoomedDistanceFromCursor=2600

Exactly the same as vanilla.

Just need to hack my keybindings to get zoom working with the mouse.

yeah, sorry Dragon. i was a bit rude and vague. Guess i should have said, "for those of you who'd like a less jarring experience when zooming out, and less annoying than 'free camera rotation', can try out Grimy's hotkeys

Thanks. WotC really really needs this one.

Not had a chance yet to dig into modding but its likely a new version (i.e. different mod) will have to be published to support WOTC.
