Tropico 5

Vote El Presidente--or else!

You decide whether you want to use your army to secure your power base in the best traditions of corrupt, unscrupulous tyrants everywhere or lead your people to prosperity in your role as generous elder statesman.

Don´t forget to keep a sharp eye on the dangers and side-effects of your absolute power! Obstacles lurk on around every corner, whether it’s militant revolutionaries bent on installing a communist junta, or the machinations of the superpowers USA and the Soviet Union, both of whom would like to see a more amenable ruler in strategically important Tropico!

It’s good to be El Presidente. As your “election” campaign said, “Vote El Presidente. Vote often!”

Create Tropico 5\CommonLua\test.lua

and add this:

OnMsg.ClassesPreprocess = function()
const.DefaultCameraRTS = {MinHeight = 12, MaxHeight = 40, HeightInertia = 4, MoveSpeedNormal = 40, MoveSpeedFast = 60, RotateSpeed = 6, LookatDist = 40, LowRotationRadius = 40, HighRotationRadius = 40, CameraYawRestore = 0, UpDownSpeed = 230, MinZoom = 8, MaxZoom = 16000, BBox = box(point(0, 0, 0), point(0, 0, 0))}

(for custom "fov" change MaxZoom , def = 8000)
