 +
==Overview==
 +

The observer mode can be used to watch other players or team flags. It can also be used to freely roam around the map.
 +
 
 +

 +
 
 +
==/roampos Command==
 +
 
 +
This is an extra command for use in roaming mode that enables you to define the camera position and rotation.<br>
 +
/roampos ["reset" | degrees | {x y z [theta [phi [ zoom ]]] } | "send"]
 +
 
 +
==/forceradar Command==
 +
The /forceradar command was added in v2.0.16. It allows observers to see
 +
the radar on "no-radar" worlds.
 +
 
 +
==Mouse Controls==
 +
Mouse observer controls were added in v2.0.16. By using various combinations of
 +
the left/middle/right mouse buttons, you can change the location and orientation
 +
of your viewpoint. You can also change the observer mode and target using the
 +
mouse wheel.
 +
 
 +
==Extended Observer Info==
 +
The 'Extended Observer Info' option found in '''Options->GUI Settings''' was added in v2.0.16. It allows the observing player to get more detailed information about the player they are currently following or tracking. Player tank speeds show up by their names on the scoreboard while some more detailed stats show up in the upper right corner. In addition, tank speeds also appear below player names if Tank Labels are enabled.
