    Hi, out of curiosity, I just wanted to ask if anyone knew if it were possible at all to rotate the in-game "camera"?

    (sort of like how the screen flips in Terraria when using the Gravity Potion?)

    Small bump, this would be kinda cool if we had a way to do this.

    Well, if you can change the zoom of the camera and move it with the control key, maybe is possible to do something else but i didn't saw something in-game like an item that do that.

    The game seems to be able to rotate sprites... can it rotate the entire world around the player?

    without destroying a few CPUs in the process?

    Science, dear, the sound of your rig going up in toxic smoke means nothing if you successfully manage to flip starbound harder than the Fresh Prince's life.
    Someone try this. For sheer sake of ridiculousness.

    If it's not possible, could someone at least tell me why?

    That's the sort of thing that would need to happen on the C++ engine side. And I know of no exposed functions that could do this. I really doubt this is possible currently.

    Maybe an external program could do it, but it isn't like I know one off hand.
