Lightbulb Tutorial 4: Operating the Camera

Initially, your view of the game (referred to as the camera) is from above your starting area. Whenever the camera is in a position like this, you can move it left and right with the left and right arrow keys (or the A and D keys), and backwards and forwards with the up and down arrow keys (or the W and S keys).

You can change the camera view by pressing the C key. This brings up the camera radial menu or you can press the grey camera eye icon in the top left hand corner.


This menu shows eight cameras around the circle, corresponding to the edges and corners of the map. Clicking any of these options changes your view to look in on the map from that edge or corner.

If you click the "T" button, your view changes to a top down mode.



Finally, you can click the free camera button (pressing the outside ring of the camera toolbar) to move your camera around the board. In this mode, you can effectively drive your camera like a character in a first person game:
  • Left and Right arrows or A and D keys turn your camera left and right.
  • Up and Down arrows or W and S keys move your camera forward and backward.
  • Q and E keys strafe your camera left and right (moving it without turning it).
  • You can also hold down your right mouse button and moving the mouse will change your angle and direction of view. If you change your viewing angle, the other controls will then be relative to the new angle.
