so a while ago I posted a bug saying I can't zoom in close enough to my big techs, and the devs were confused as to what I meant. Here's a more visual representation of what I meant.

That is the furthest I can zoom in. I can't zoom in a nanometer more. How am I supposed to build from this far out? Can you please fix this ASAP? The only way I can build is by putting a separate tech on the floor and using that to zoom in.

and for those of you who say "just build beam", I get about 25 FPS in this thing while anchored, around 20 when flying, and around 3 when I'm in build beam. It's not an option.

This video is an example of how close you could zoom in on techs in a previous version during normal gameplay. This is not possible in version 1.0.1.

I agree, I'm working on something large and sprawling now and my camera doesn't zoom in nearly as much as I would need. Thank goodness it's full of corridors anyway and I can jam a cab in there. :oops:

I find that using the Build Beam unlocks the camera. Try it out!
Still not as flexible though and very laggy.

The Cab method works far better.

This video shows the zoom level available in the current version 1.0.2. Please compare it to the above video I posted on Nov. 24. The same vehicle was used in both videos. I've also included some shots of a larger structure and the limitation of the zoom with that as well.
