Quick Camera v 2.6


With all the additional key controls that modern vehicles and implements now has, it is not always feasible to switch between keyboard, mouse and steering wheel all the time, as it may cause driving errors or worse.
So to look quickly around, this Quick Camera mod introduce “quick-tap keys” for both cabin camera and external cameras of a vehicle.
Make sure you go into ‘Options’ – ‘Controls’ in the game, and assign your own keys to the “QuickCam: Look…” actions.
Now in-game, quick tap the key that you assigned to the ‘QuickCam: Look 45° Left’ action, and the camera will rotate to the next 45 degree angle to the left, and so too for the ‘QuickCam: Look 45° Right’ action.
To look backwards, quick tap the key that you assigned to the ‘QuickCam: Look backward’ action, and like so for the ‘QuickCam: Look forward’ action. You can also toggle between looking forward/backward by assigning a key to the ‘QuickCam: Toggle look for/back’ action.
If the selected camera is capable of zooming, a quick tap on your ‘QuickCam: Zoom out’ key, will cause it to zoom out 15 units at a time. And likewise for your ‘QuickCam: Zoom in’ key.
Remembers camera position and direction.
When switching back and forth between vehicles, the last selected camera and its position/direction is now remembered.
This option can be toggled off/on using the ‘QuickCam: Toggle auto-reset’ action (default LEFT-ALT K), if you want to revert back to normal.

Note: These positions/directions are unfortunately NOT saved between game sessions.

Default action/key assignments:
– RIGHT – Look 45° right
– LEFT – Look 45° left
– UP – Look forwards
– DOWN – Look backwards
– END – Toggle look forwards/backwards
– PAGE UP – Zoom in
– PAGE DOWN – Zoom out
– LEFT ALT K – Toggle auto-reset
– Press and hold C – Toggle current camera world-alignment on/off

Fixes for articulated vehicles’ outside camera rotation

Whoever at Giants Software that decided the outside camera on articulated vehicles should rotate to the opposite direction of the steering, have probably never spend much time in-game with it.

So this mod also adds some fixes for the following articulated vehicles:
– Liebherr L538
– New Holland W170C (New Holland DLC pack)
– JCB 435S (JCB DLC pack)
– JCB TM320S (JCB DLC pack)

Additional/other vehicles’ outside camera rotation can also be “fixed”, if using the ‘ModsSettings’mod.

Version 2.6:
* Optionally using ‘ModsSettings’mod for possible additional player custom fixes for outside camera rotation of articulated vehicles.
* Must be at least version 0.2.0 of ‘ModsSettings’mod.
