CircularCamera mod - quickly navigate map using extra cameras


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm sharing with you this mod that I made long ago, hoping it is useful to somebody. The mod is named CircularCamera (official page on GitLab) and it provides nine new cameras, each pointing at a fixed position on the map. Each camera can be accessed with a hotkey. See image below.



  • Nine new pre-set cameras are available: one points at the center of the map and eight point at the eight corners of the map. Jumping to any of these cameras can be done via a hotkey. Hotkeys can be edited from the Settings > Hotkeys menu.
  • Distance of cameras from map center: the distance can be increased or decreased with CapsLock+Plus and CapsLock+Minus. The default distance from the map center can be restored with CapsLock+R. The default distance from the center, as well as the increasing/decreasing step can be adjusted from the user.cfg configuration file.
  • Hotkeys: search for circularcamera in the Settings > Hotkeys menu: there you can edit all the relevant hotkeys.

Mod installation

  1. Download the attached zip file and extract it.
  2. Copy the CircularCamera folder into the mods folder, tipically located at:
    • Linux: ~/.local/share/0ad/mods/
    • macOS: ~/Library/Application\ Support/0ad/mods/
    • Windows: ~\Documents\My Games\0ad\mods\
  3. Launch 0 A.D. and open the Settings > Mod Selection menu.
  4. Select the CircularCamera mod, Enable it and Save Configuration.
