Improved mouse + keyboard camera controls

Crayta’s advanced mode allows players to quick fly around their world with their drone, to manipulate the world faster and more efficiently than in basic mode. Players can use WASD to move, E and Q to fly up and down, and hold RMB to look around. However, some industry-standard game engines such as Unreal Engine offer additional camera controls that Crayta could make use of.

These camera controls could include:

  • Holding the scroll wheel / middle mouse button to pan
  • Using the scroll wheel to zoom in and out
  • Holding Alt while using the right mouse button, to orbit around the focus point

These additional controls would give creators more flexibility in moving around the 3D space, potentially allowing for faster and easier world-building.
