I'm not sure how this feature, if available to members, would undermine the integrity of the game. As I suggested, if it were available to use in a non-hunting, single player, session, there would be no harm to any competitions or any impact on anyone else's game at all.
The Dev's have done some amazing work on these reserves, when I see these "fly-over" clips I practically drool wanting to have that perspective. In the twitch stream, it was stated, a few times, how amazing the view was..... yeah I bet it is (drool). This drone view would enable me to really appreciate the work on these reserves & animals. That spot when TreeKiwi and twitch viewers heard that little grunt made when the Kangaroo (I think it was a Roo) finally dropped dead, was, as he said, something no one had probably ever heard before.
As much time as I spend hunting in this game (which unfortunately has diminished lately), I could easily see myself spending a lot more time soaring over the reserves, watching the animals & seeing parts of the map that I had never seen before.
Now, as far as getting more people interested in the game.... I'm all for it. And I agree, this camera will probably be very beneficial in that regard. As I stated before, I don't watch the streams or videos at length, they make me want to stop everything & go play for myself, but everyone is different there are countless people who do enjoy them. I have been involved in the game for many years & I still catch different techniques to use, when I watch others playing.
All in all, I see it being, another premium feature to make money, & a very amazing exploratory tool that wouldn't enable me to an upper hand in any way.
