    Default Splenyi' Better Campaign Camera + Battle Camera (Release 2.5) (30/01/2015)

    Splenyi' Better Campaign Camera


    Are you just like me, when you hate how close the campaign camera was in Fall of the Samurai to the map (AND NOW OUR BELOVED ROME 2!?), and not being able to get a decent strategic view of your empire?

    Then you'll probably want this mod.

    This is the absolute (STABLE) limit to the zooming of the campaign map, until I find out otherwise.

    It'll be compatible with any mod that doesn't edit the scripting.lua file (eg. DOES work with 2 turn per years mods, playable faction mods, etc.).

    This pack file is in the "Mod" format, so what you need to do is drop it into your data folder (default; C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Total War Rome II\data), then get the Mod Manager to active it, or enter it into the user.script manually, or of course you can use the built-in Mod Manager.

    The "Mod Friendly" version works with other campaign mods, like the Radious Overhaul.

    Please note, this requires a new campaign to take effect.

    ~Now with battle map zoom-ability! Max and min zoom caps have been modified~

    Requires a new campaign, right? What did you use for your zoom settings? I went with 3 and 0.6

    I need both movie and mod packs to make this work? I put the movie pack into my Rome 2 data folder and the Mod pack goes where?

    I would suppose so, I'm not sure, I haven't got a save laying around. Perhaps someone could confirm this?

    And I used 50 and 0.001 just to see what the limits are. It has the same effects as the ones you are using, so there's a hardcode limit (unless it's defined in another location?)

    No mate. Get one or the other. Movie pack is for people that like the convenience of drop and play

    EDIT: Added that to the OP, I realised that might have been a bit unclear for people that we're familiar with this stuff.

    Did you do this through the scripting.lua I mentioned earlier?

    If so it requires a new campaign as the old scripting.lua will be saved into the savegame.

    Not a problem, I'm glad you like it, I know I hated the vanilla zoom limit

    Where did you mention this?

    Yes I did, thanks for the confirmation and thanks again for your mod tool, wouldn't have been possible without it.

    The Movie and Mod pack do the same thing, if you don't know the difference, get the Movie pack. Just read the OP.

    PS. Welcome to TWC

    Haha thanks for the warm welcome, but the original post still doesn't say what the movie pack does. Is it in a different thread?

    No mate. Both the packs are the exact same thing, it's just the pack format that is different. Movie pack is in the "movie" format (which means it doesn't need to be added to the user.script), the Mod pack is in the "mod" format (which means it does need to be added to the user.script).

    Just download the Movie pack, place it into the directory noted in the OP, and enjoy the mod

    I'm going to throw out a curveball here, is there any chance the Overview overlays could be added to this? Maybe a mod to take away the drawn out map? That might call for a different mod...

    Do I need to back up anything for this? Just in case I dont like it.

    Also does the camera zoom all the way in on the battle map?

    Thanks bro!!!

    Nope, no backup needed, doesn't over right anything, just delete the pack if you don't want it any more.This is a campaign map camera mod, so no, sorry.

    thanks for this mod, collecting a few atm,
    is there a way to also zoom IN more, to see the details of the units figures, close ups of the spy, champion, etc?
