Could the functionality of the orbit cam be changed so that it resets to the default position once you're done using it, instead of it "remembering" the last position it was at when you released the assigned key? Basically the way it works in Mount & Blade: Warband/Napoleonic Wars. Or maybe make it an option?


You now have to constantly adjust the viewing direction because the orbit cam stays in the viewing direction you left it at when you last used it, regardless of the movements/direction changes you've made with your character. Sometimes you will have to make a 180 degree turn with the camera to get it to face the direction you want, which can be quite disorienting. If it would reset to the default position - facing forward, showing your character's back - you'll always know the starting point of the camera, and you'll only have to make a quick mouse-movement to the left or right.


Would be much appreciated!


Anybody else who feels this way?

Would set it so that it always takes the orientation of the default camera else, if you look to the right or left with your default camera, and use the Orbit camera it will still snap back, but yeah it is super annoying that it remembers the position :)

I support this!
It is a great hassle when you are lining up with you dashing regiment and suddenly you face the man next to you, it does not make the captain happy at all.  ;)
