I have made several incar cameras, here is how. (Btw, it's awesom soon as you get it just right, i only drive with incar camera now)

copy your vehOff.csv and rename it to vehOff.csv.magic, after this open the orginal and change lines on each car you want to modify:

VEHICLE admiral FIELD BONNET_FWD POS -0.003357 0.525330 0.534668

This is the line you will edit:

first line is the left and right from center i normally use always -0.403357, this will put it on drivers side. Some exceptions tho like a bus.

second line is how far ahead the camera is and the last one is the height of the camera, play around little bit and you will get it. Besure to read the topic how to make your gta iv moddable first. you need to edit few files like files.txt and filelist.pak

Take care

I've begun a large-scale overhaul changing all hood views to dashboard, I'm about 30-40% done.

Hey does anybody have a bonnet view for the comet which DOESN'T wobble? I try use it but I can't consentrate with it because everything is bouncing everywhere by the smallest bumps on the road.
This would be nice too if you're making dashboard views you should make them not so wobbly.


Thanks.

What settings would I use so that I can lock the camera behind the vehicles when turning corners and spinning around. I am getting tired of having to correct the camera everytime I turn the corner? Thx.

I tried to make a dashboard view for dukes but it didn't work.
Here is what i did:
before:
VEHICLE dukes FIELD BONNET_FWD POS 0.000610 0.556763 0.590942 ANGLES -0.000000 0.000000 0.000000 FOV 72.000000

changed to:
VEHICLE dukes FIELD BONNET_FWD POS -0.500610 0.056763 0.490942 ANGLES -0.000000 0.000000 0.000000 FOV 72.000000

Does anyone know what the problem with it ?

[solved]I made a mistake about the origin and edited files.pak

Don't know if someone posted a mod for "inside camera" but for those who want to play it from "inside" :
http://rapidshare.co...vehOff.csv.html

put it inside the "common/data" folded (after you patched the game to make it modable and made a backup copy(technically it's done automatically by the patch))

All vehicles are done (boat and helicopters too (even police maverick and predator (i've modded my cargrp to make them spawn on the street to check)))
Most cameras are good but some suck (bikes mostly...it's because of the movement niko can do)

Wish we could remove the movement of niko in this view...i could have had WAY better view than what i've got now sad.gif
