I finished doing the FOV feature and setting up the camera speed slider to the new version of freeplay, now there are 2 sliders:



Here's a preview of the FOV feature:

Let me know if there is any trouble.

THank you very much :)

VC Freeplay v6 (aka the "I'm running out of unused keys on the keyboard" edition) is now available!

Download here: VC Freeplay v6 with source, via ModDB
The documentation file, included in this package, contains full detail on each feature (updated for the new/changed stuff, in addition to making them easier to read) and a complete changelog.

Excerpts from the Changelog:

  • Moving a frozen/cinematic camera via the arrow keys will now be performed in relation to the direction the camera is facing. Eg. Up Arrow will always make you go forward, Left Arrow will always make you strafe left. If you find an angle you like, you can also hold RShift to move based on that, such that you can re-aim the camera and it wont affect movement directions.
  • The Custom FOV toggle/modify features have been incorporated into base Freeplay package (thanks MtS!).
  • Added on-the-fly 'Speed' updates for the Camera-Movement and FOV-Adjustment features.
  • Added ways to Simulate Mouse Movement via the keyboard (so can potentially get smooth/consistent motion). These become available once the corresponding Mouse Axis BlockingOverride feature/s are enabled. Also the blocking + simulation now affects all in-game mouse movement other than the Main Menu (no more limitations on their effectiveness).
  • Added button to instantly activate Free Camera mode (which, combined with the default game behaviour of remembering your last Free Camera Rotation & Tilt, and the also-new Freeplay behaviour of also ensuring your Zoom is remembered, means you can get back into Free Camera exactly how you last left it).
  • Added ability to enforce your own custom Free Camera Zoom, Tilt (mouse up/down), and even Rotation (mouse left/right) limits.
  • 3rd Person Unique Camera is now supported by the Zoom Adjustment and Remove Obstruction Checks features (both were previously Free Camera only). Also, the 3rd Person Unique Camera will no longer temporarily snap to 1st Person when flying under a bridge (this is a new always-on feature).
  • Provided access to the Look-Left/Right/Behind angles when using a 1st/3rd Person Unique Camera.
  • Can now interact with multiple features simultaneously much better than before.
  • Bugfixes:
    • Frozen/Cinematic Camera Movement speed will not double when holding the buttons to move in more than one direction at a time.
    • Starting Free Camera for the first time in a session without moving your mouse will no longer lead to an awkward/unresponsive camera.
    • Toggling your headlights now works for cars (previously it only worked for bikes, whoops!).
    • (And likely a whole bunch of potential ones more relating to behind-the-scenes changes that I hadn't encountered, but were possible, and I'm glad wont be experienced now)

Cheers all!

Gonna try out the speed update for the cam movements, if it is what I think it is I'm a very happy guy. Thanks Dannye :wub:

I've been lazy as hell with actually trying out the new freeplay features, but I still gotta give massive thanks for giving us all the freedom imaginable to manipulate camera angles.

Wow, that looks like a major update. I'm curious what kind of things people are going to do in the future with different variations of camera angles. Especially the smooth camera option made it for me.

Thanks dannye.

I hope the SA Freeplay gets an update like this as well :wub:.

I'm surprised that you dropped v6, because right now I connected to the forums with a fucking proxy and now this shit. Holy fuck.

Quote
This functionality has been written to (hopefully) work as expected even if using the 3rd-party "WidescreenFix" mod in conjunction (this is a 3rd party modification that also interacts with the game's internal FOV settings)

Holy shit, I've been using it all the time and before v6 I asked MtS to make it so the FOV feature is compatible with the plugin, and happy to report that it worked, so shoutout to him :wub: :wub: :wub:

I prefer the "slider" version from Mateus tho, so let's just wait for him to drop his part :D Can't wait to force myself to use a fucking fullsized keyboard to try out the angles because I'm using a fucking TKL XDXDXDXDXDXD

Cheers for the kind words everyone  :wub:

With thanks to Max, a minor hotfix may be on its way - it turns out that my use of the left/right mouse clicks for on-the-fly camera speed adjustments may not have been the best idea, as sometimes it simply doesn't work. The update thus includes an alternate key binding for those features, assigned to the left/right square-bracket keys (support may be subject to the overall keyboard type you use... hopefully at least one of the approaches will work for everyone). I might play around with it a little bit more, to see if I can get a better understanding of what the deal is with the mouse stuff, in case somehow there's a way around it, but if not I'll be sure to post the updated version here soon. Until then, if anyone else notices this issue (or any others), let me know.
