Is it possible to change FIRST to THIRD person perspective?

Post by tecto » Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:37 pm

Is it possible to change first to third person perspective to see the farmer like in e. g. Pure Farming?
Is there any mod to do that?

Maybe they didn’t like the way it looked when they put it in? It is kind of an awkward position tbh.

Other games (like some racing games) show your hands and feet when driving. But then they also follow some of the more important stuff you do while playing: accelerating, breaking, changing gears, pushing some buttons on the steering wheel. Which is often all you can do. And while playing racing game you often have both your hands on the wheel. So it's easy to implement and get right. If FS would have this, they need to implement these motions as well - otherwise I think it will look strange. But where the controls are in a machine differs between tractors, combines, etc. So a lot to implement. And often you only have one hand on the wheel and the other on the controls by the side. And if your real hand is there preparing to press some button on some gaming device while the screen shows both your hands on the wheel... Probably looks weird. There are probably more important stuff GIANTS could spend their time on.

Generally I meant third person perspective - only when you are outside of the vehicle.
I like the way how it's done in Pure Farming (screenshot below).
It shows the farmer's "body" when you're e.g. walking into the vehicle.
It's cool since you have some more size reference to feel how big the tractor or combine is in real.

So, let me get this straight. You want to modify your avatar, and see it in game as well? What a novel idea.

Sorry if I made this get a bit off topic. That pic looks great! I would love to see my character while walking around, or have the option to anyway.

Yes I would love to have a choice between FPP and TPP. Hope to see it soon in game... ;)

This thread is vaguely related to my suggestion, so here goes.

I'd like to see more Picture In Picture views, headcanon that you have a GoPro set up on various points of the tractor/equipment. A lot of the time the third person view is needed because you need to see side on how high your pallet forks are then rotate the view to see you are lined up (though that latter can be done in-cab). So I'd like to see, like with the map, a cam view openable in the corner (or corners for multiple ongoing cameras) that shows a camera view on the front-bottom of the tractor, or top-back looking down, or on the left/right edge of the harvester header, etc. so that you can stay in-cab but still get some situational awareness that you cannot currently get.

Heck, have camera positions settable by the user so they can determine where to look, though that brings in how to allow that setup to change based on vehicle, so maybe just change the pointing slightly from some equipment-defined points.

Careful what you wish for, Forza Horizon went down that dark path, and now most of the game's content seems to be different skirts,boots, and hats, rather than racing and driving.

It should be possible since in MP you see the other characters walking around.
