This edited "vehOff.csv" file fixes that. It uses repositioned bonnet camera to establish a view that is behind and above the car, never moves from behind the vehicle when you turn and provides great view of the road in front of the vehicles.
There's a lot of bouncing and jiggling while you drive because I don't know how to disconnect the camera from the suspension Another shortcoming is that shooting from this view is difficult, you will need to switch to one of the normal swinging camera views to drive & shoot.
This is the same view that the popular "in car" view mod uses so if you use this you will lose that.
This is for the stock vehicles in the game only.
I don't know if new cars added to the game change "vehOff.csv" but
you can manually copy/replace any of the "bonnet_fwd" and "bonnet_bwd" lines in "vehOff.csv" for any vehicle you have added to the game.
The normal "swinging" views are untouched.
Includes all cars and motorcycles except the Speedo van and Freeway.
Trucks remain stock bonnet cam views.
I'll post some screens soon but you can't really appreciate what it does without movement.
Update: Screens posted!
