Is there a way to lock the camera angle, height, etc once I have it where I want it? You know, like using Scroll Lock to stop adjustment (not camera position on the map of course, just the positioning of the camera)?

Any comments?

We don't currently have such a feature but we could look into it if there's a demand.

Alternatively you could change the bindings in the controls.xml file if you want to turn off zooming on the mousewheel for example which would make it harder to do accidentally.

I didn't think about turning off mousewheel action. I do use it to scroll around the map, but I may just disable that, I use the arrows/wasd just as often. It's really when I'm using the right/left click together to rotate... I can just use keyboard commands to rotate and such... not that a big deal....

(tangent) I only need to rotate to look at combat when in mountain passes, etc. Can the occlusion (if there's even any, can't really remember) be adjusted so when I mouse over troops the foreground just fades away so I don't need to rotate? ;)

Thanks for the reply
