Camera mod (fixed to driver seat) ?

Post by W1der » Fri Jul 12, 2019 11:35 am

Does anyone know if there is a mod that changes the camera so that it is fixed to the drivers seat for all vehicles?

I just tried the SynTrac mod and drove around. It seems to be setup this way and I like it a lot better like that!
Feels a lot more realistic when driving as it adds to the sensation of speed!

I know GIANTS intended it to be like this but changed it after some test players complained about it.
Sure, if your driving around like your in a race car it gets a bit "bumpy" in the terrain ... :lol:
To bad they did not make it a menu option ... :neutralnew:

Easy, if you are on PC.

Create a new camera in Giants Editor, see the picture below.
Then edit the XML and change the indoorCamera to the node of the new camera.

Code: Select all

<i3dMapping id="indoorCamera" node="0>0|9|0|9" />

Yea, well I need to do that on every single vehicle then ...
I am looking for a script that changes this for all vehicles (including the base game ones).
But perhaps this is not possible?

But at least now I know how to fix it for mods ... TACK!

Varsågod 😊

I think fixing these small things is fun. I usually tweak all mods somehow. Mostly making them fit my plsystyle but also fixing bugs and exaggerated HP and so on.
