Hey guys! First off, glad to see you seem to be (for the most part) enjoying the beta! We have a question for you guys about a specific UI feature we have, the city build mode zoom option. For those that don't know, in the general options there is an option to turn on "city build mode zoom". What this does is make it so when you build something you get a transition into a different, birds-eye, view of the city in question.
Internally there are differing opinions on what we think of this mode and we would like to see what you guys think about it. In order to see what I mean follow these steps:
1: Enable the mode in general options http://screencast.com/t/m0MsKHblJsQ
2: Build something in a city! http://screencast.com/t/uERqR5q8U4I
3: This is what the standard build view is with the option off for reference http://screencast.com/t/E3H6fqsU
I would prefer if you guys actually try using the mode yourself for a while before you vote, seeing it static is different from in the game with animation and in different situations. Obviously you don't HAVE to, but you may feel differently late in the game or something.
As a final note, no matter what the result of the vote this feature (and the ability to turn it off) will remain in the game. So however you feel about it, don't worry you will be able to play as you like; I mean this is a PC game, not being able to play how you want is more of a console thing this is just going to help us decide how our default experience is for new users.
