|New Blue Mars Feature #2: Menu Tray
Our designer created a Menu tray with animated icons. This provides an intuitive way to find what you need. And you can move the Camera icon anywhere you like.
The Camera icon lets you select from 4 cam zoom settings: 3rd person, half body view, head and shouders, and 1st person.
