Cities Skylines 2: Cinematic Camera & Photo Mode
Hello everyone! Welcome back to another chapter of our development diary series. Today, we’re unveiling a feature designed to immortalize the standout moments from your urban creations! The Cinematic and Free Camera modes in Cities: Skylines II offer an experience that’s a marked departure from what you might recall from the original game. It’s not just a slight shift; it’s a whole new perspective. To access these modes, simply click on the Photo Mode icon, conveniently situated in the bottom-right of the main interface. This is your ticket to step into the realm of photography and film, allowing you to snapshot the grandeur, pandemonium, or even the intriguing complexity of your city’s roadways to share with fellow gamers!
The potency of these tools is aptly demonstrated by the in-game trailer, shot entirely using the Cinematic Camera tool embedded in the game. This diary entry aims to guide you through the features, ensuring you can craft spectacular visuals of your own cityscapes!
