Option to switch how moving around the map works

Post by ThinkSome »

"<Fizzy > ...when I hold down the middle mouse button, I want the terrain, not the camera, to move in the direction I move my mouse"

Does such an option exist and if not, can it be added?

Unless this request involves some unexpressed subtleties, "I want the terrain to move in the direction I move my mouse" is equivalent to "I want the camera to move in the opposite direction I move my mouse", in which case the answers are no and yes.

It probably means, make it feel like if you grabbed the terrain with middle mouse down, and pulled it with the mouse.

I want the black & white controls back.. I found grabbing the countryside and pulling it towards me intuitive.

+1 on that, it is what feels the most natural to me as well. And I'm pretty sure we're not the only ones! Or is there a function to create/select this function whenever we're working on our games?

https://springrts.com/wiki/Springsettin ... crollSpeed can be negative. Mess with it and related settings, I am fairly sure what you want is possible.
