    Default Zone Mode - Why is the camera so different?

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who has noticed this - the camera in Zone Mode seems to work quite differently to the camera in the other modes. It is closer for a start but, more than that, it seems rooted more to the ship. Am I right about that?

    I'm curious - anyone have any guesses as to why a different camera would be used in Zone?

    Heh, I know I can change the view with select! The behaviour of the camera is still different. Compare them yourself and see what you think,

    Tighter, do you mean? I've only seen the IGN video of Zone mode and I think I know what you mean. The camera doesn't seem as loose as a normal race.

    I have noticed this, too. The camera seems to be more fixed in zone mode. I'm sure this is on purpose, because in zone mode you can get on speeds way faster than in the other modes, so it probably caused some problems with a looser camera, clipping through walls on tight corners or whatever.

    I dunno how you guys can even use chase-cam
    I haven't noticed any difference in the cockpit camera in zone mode...

    I know the real pros fly on cockpit view, but I adore the ships so much that I stick to chase-cam where I can see them

    I do.

    Or at least I've been using it since I've been using Auricom, as the far chase cam makes the ship appear narrower and it's easier for me to judge the turn in. Don't know why, I imagine it's more an optical illusion than anything.
