[MOD] Third Person Camera

Post by joshcamas »

Download On the Nexus

This mod adds the ability to look at your character in the scene! For now the camera cannot be repositioned other than rotation, but I plan on fixing that. To toggle the third person camera, merely press "O". I plan on making the various keybinds changable in settings.

As for other features, there isn't much yet. Press "W" to toggle the depth of field effect, and press "S" to see your character naked for some reason, you little pervert. I was hoping to get armor hiding working, but that may take some hackiness (removing armor on player I suppose?) that will come later.

Also, please report any bugs this mod has. Features have to be manually disabled when in third person camera, so I'm very sure I missed at least one.

Changelog:
Spoiler!
v0.1.3
  • Fixed issue with DREAM paperdoll
v0.1.2
  • Fixed a bunch of camera issues
v0.1.1
  • Initial Implementation

This is quite awesome, but I use a lot of mods (enhanced sky, distant terrain, DREAM, splat textures, and others), and this seems to make problems.

Here is 1st person view:

And here 3rd person view:

The sun stays near the character even when turning the camera, and there are artifacts (I guess from the mesh or textures).

Ok, the visual artifacts I see in front of the character is definitely the distant terrain created by said mod.

Also, the enhanced sky is not lining up correctly.

If these two things could be adjusted (maybe some draw order issue?) 3rd person camera would be one of my favorite mods, since finally I could take screenshots with my character in front of his favorite places.

I am very much not surprised that there are issues like this - I'll grab those mods and fix it :) the issue has to do with the fact that I'm creating a new camera, which breaks stuff. I might just move the camera instead tbh, would probably solve a ton of issues

Pushed a fix that should solve most mod-related issues. :)

Thank you, much better!

For my personal taste, the distance to the character is a bit small -- so the character is very big and thus very pixel-ish; would be great to be able to zoom out further.

(And even better would be DREAM compatibility, so it uses the replacement textures.)

Yeah I'm planning on adding a "zoom" feature to allow that :) As for dream compatibility, I'll look into it, a bit surprised it doesn't work straight out of the box.
