Have a way to increase your vision range. This would be especially useful for watching battles taking place -- right now, if I stay safely behind my walls I can't see most of the fight. (And venturing into the spawn point to watch the battle has other problems.)

Have a Panopticon mech that lets you zoom out and see more of the map.

Have a mech (or other feature) that lets you see the whole map when you press "m".

Have a mech that is phased-out and invulnerable, so it can't attack but it also can't be destroyed, that you can use to watch battles.

I like the idea of mech having this bonus

| matheod commented about 1 month ago

Maybe a mech with big zoom out and a long range gun that can only attack unit (0 damage to building which still block shot) ?

Sniper Mech would be cool

Someone pointed out that you can already zoom out using Ctrl+mousewheel. Maybe the feature could be documented better.

Have a mech (or other feature) that lets you see the whole map when you press "m". This is called the minimap, you enable it in the settings.

Decreasing the UI scale will allow you to zoom out further.

+1 for Ctrl+mousewheel, it should be included in the tutorial.

Ctrl+mousewheel is zooming but it's limited why not Ctrl+mouse moving to look left/right/up/down of you

Sounds good. But it may be a giddy when returning from far and animation, no animation may be good.

I see it included in the latest tutorial.
