Just returning, new camera may drive me away again...

I just returned yesterday, so this may not be the right place for this, but I want to mention that one of my enjoyments was watching my ship fly while tracking... and it centers the tracked object right in the middle of the screen with my ship blocking it. I used to be able to shift my ship down and to the left of the tracked object, and this would store as the view I would always have of the tracked object with my ship offset on the screen. If the tracked object is always going to be centered and blocked by my ship, without the possibility of "offsetting" my ship from the tracked object like I used to, then I will slowly lose interest in flying at all... Need the camera offset ability with tracking...

It kind of annoys me, but not enough so far to go change the settings.

If you do change the settings, you can make the new camera behave like the old one.

I found my optimum setting was around camera left 10-20% with higher inertia and no shaking

♣ Small Gang PVP, Large Fleet PVP, Black Ops, Incursions, Trade, and Industry ♣ 70% Lethal / 30% Super-Snuggly / 110% No idea what im doing ♣

Un-check the dynamic camera options in the main menu, that'll fix the issue most people have had with the camera.

CCP. Please give us a custom tracking position back

Also, I love the dynamic camera for something, however the docking camera still takes way to long to release control of the camera orientation on dock/undock.

Could perhaps find a way to leave some of the functions of the dynamic camera enabled, but enable an option to opt out of the docking camera?

Sometimes I think that custom tracking position is a point of honor for CCP to not implement at all cost ...

As in context of returning players, I hope you didn't use old tactical overview too extensively =) At least in some scenarios the new one is arguably better. In others though ....

Would a few options (vertical projection, good old sphere) hurt that much CCP ?
