SimCity Color Filters And Tilt-Shift Camera Controls Revealed
SimCity lead designer Ocean Quigley has announced a new feature via his personal development blog that the upcoming game will contain a feature that allows players to essentially pull an Instagram on their game by applying one of its many color filters.
The color filter system serves as a purely cosmetic option for the game, including options to make the game look like Sin City with the Black & Red filter, a Sepia Toned filter for an old-timey look, a Vintage filter that resembles countless Instagram photographs, a Faded filter which washes out greens and blues, and Teal & Orange, for that Hollywood movie look. Desaturated makes the game look like Gears of War, and Vivid turns up the color saturation.
Screenshots of the filters in action can be seen below.

In addition to the color filters, Quigley has announced on the official SimCity blog you’ll be able to mess around with the tilt-shift camera controls that give the game its shallow depth-of-field and miniature look, as exhibited in the video below.
