[Q] Tweak the default driving camera angle?

Recommended Posts


Been searching a bit today and found various camera mods for fixed position and other things, but I can't figure out how to make one tiny change that would drastically improve driving/gameplay for me. biggrin.gif


I simply want to take the normal outside driving view and have it look downward a bit more...but change NOTHING else. I could not attain this with other mods without breaking in-car shooting or free-looking. Here's two screenshots explaining.


Normal view:

View I would love:

FWIW, I've trained myself over the years to hold the right analog stick slightly downward to achieve this manually but now that I'm modding my game I was hoping there was a simple file to change or something to have this stick permanently. Thanks in advance!

Good place to start looking (i think) is in the vehOff.csv file in common\data folder.



VEHICLE admiral FIELD CINEY_WHEEL_2 POS 1.182246 -1.940674 -0.222046 ANGLES -0.026824 0.325478 0.030861 FOV 55.000000



I do believe the last value of 55.000000 is the DOF FOV code and the first values are the position of the camera. I could be wrong. Something to try in the interim. Make sure you back up the file XD icon14.gif

Thanks for the quick response! I tried changing all the values of that line just to see what would happen and I couldn't notice any changes in any of the three external camera views. I even tried changing the FOV. I guess that means it's likely another line somewhere in that .CSV file that controls the view?


Appreciate the help once again!

Well I've been toying around with hundreds of numbers and can't seem to get it to change at all...so I feel like I'm in the wrong file/place altogether. Anyone else with any insight?


Appreciated! colgate.gif

Sorry to bump this again but after a few weeks I have my GTA modded like crazy with everything I've always wanted but I still just can't figure this out. If I could just find out which value or values do it I'd be happy to tweak it and trial and error it myself.


I guess if no one knows I'll have to live without it!

I don't fully understand what the OP is asking, but my pet peeve with all Renderware GTA games has been too low camera angle when driving, I essentially drive with the camera pulled up during critical missions. The low height impairs visibility a lot.
