Camera Mod

Unread postby maximusthedark » Tue, 6th Jan 2009 15:49

I'm bored... so I decided to fiddle around with the simple settings of the constant.ini and mod the settings of the camera... :amused:

it's always been nice to have this feeling of waking in a dense jungle... so instead of hovering around your island like some god while create things and stuff, you can zoom in at ground level where you can take a look at things closely, and at the same time walk around while sweeping away the vegetation ahead of you...

it's also nice viewing a large carnivores activity while thinking you're actually looking below it, sometimes it can get frightening... :hehee:

well, if you're interested, just open the constant.ini in the Data folder of jpog, then search for this lines and paste these ones to replace it... remember to highlight the same lines, okay...? :amused:


Code: Select all
   FollowCamMinPitch = -100;
   FollowCamMaxPitch =  10;
   FollowCamMaxDistanceOffset =  100;
   WorldCamMinPitch = -10;
   WorldCamMaxPitch = 10;
   WorldCamMinDistance =  -5;
   WorldCamMaxDistance =  180;
   WorldCamTerrainOffset =  -1.5;
   WorldCamFOVWhenLow =  20;
   WorldCamFOVWhenHigh =  55;
   WorldCamMinFOVHeight =  10;
   WorldCamMaxFOVHeight =  83;



when you start your game, you'll start with yourself facing skywards as if your waiting for a rescue chopper... simply press the 'F' key to retract your view or to zoom out... you can simply adjust your view...

here are some snapshots...

hide... it can smell you...

this one has me chasing around the island...

then she met good ol' spino and ate her... :lul:

here's a bird eye's view of the buffet...

she looks cute, right...? :amused:

How do I switch from this mod back to the default way? I don't like it, but I don't remember the original way.

are you sure you highlighted the same lines in the constant.ini and pasted the lines I posted in its place...?

you can do it manually, tho... just replace the numbers with the ones in my mod... you'll know you did right if you start up the game looking upward, and you are on the ground...
