Selecting the observer mode


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


The default controls for observer mode are as follows:

Control Binding Action
L Display a label just under each tank listing their name.
Arrow Keys Navigates the camera around with tank-driving style controls.
Ctrl+Arrow Keys Pans and tilts the camera without moving the position.
Shift+Arrow Keys Moves the camera position up and down vertically, and left and right horizontally.
Alt+Arrow Keys Strafe side to side.
F6/F7 Previous/Next target in the current display mode. Does not have any effect in the roaming mode.
F8 Cycles through various observer modes: roaming, driving with a tank, following a tank, tracking a tank, and tracking a team flag.
F9/F10 Sets narrow/wide viewing angle, allows you to see more or less of the field
F11 Resets viewing angle to default
A Toggles momentum on the camera movement.

/roampos Command

This is an extra command for use in roaming mode that enables you to define the camera position and rotation.
/roampos ["reset" | degrees | {x y z [theta [phi [ zoom ]]] } | "send"]
