  • Strategic Zoom for spectate/replays

    Allow mousewheels to zoom in and out to arbitrary levels centred on the mouse (supreme commander is the most well known game for having this feature).

    This would allow people to spectate entire teamfights, even if they split up into a large area as heroes chase each other down. The screen size is fixed for players since it would allow much more map awareness (incoming potm arrows easier to spot for example), but replays/spectating don't have the same balance requirements.

    Overall it is just such an intuitive and flexible way to control a camera, and that should surely be what is desired in when that's all you can control!

    PS Is it possible to code this using binds to mousewheels and the new free look? I've not had a chance to fiddle yet...
