RTS Behavior Vertical Speed Modifier

New releases and general discussions.

Something that seems to be severely lacking in the RTS behavior is an option to set the max vertical speed to something other than the max speed. This becomes a problem when you have an isometric RTS game - like Age of Empires - where units are supposed to move half as fast along the Y axis as they do on the X axis due to the viewing angle. So perhaps you could have a property like "Y Speed", which could be a percentage value. Just a thought.

Couldn't you do something like:
character is moving
character angle is 30 degrees
>set max speed to max speed / 2

I think you'd probably get some sort of speed distortion(?) using that method. This feature should be included anyways considering how many RTS games are isometric.
