3rd level 2 master race!

 

I like that view because its the right distance from the car for my personal preference, there really aren't any other reasons.

I wish I could say first person, but until we have decent VR so we can look around easily, I have to drive in 3rd person level 3. I hate turning into things on the side that I can't see.

I mostly drive and fly in first person. I also play in first person 90% of the time.

 

I like the immersion and control in first better than third. Car handling feels better, and flying feels better.

 

Pro-tip for driving in first person, turn your head when driving especially to lead a turn it helps so much, you know like we do irl!

First person is the only way I can get through traffic without side swiping everything.

Third person, medium distance, high camera height master race.

 

I like the fact that I can see everything around me in addition to having good spatial awareness of my vehicle. Being too close or too far from the vehicle also makes me uncomfortable for some reason.

I occasionally swap to 1st person from time to time when driving. But I much prefer to see the back of my $2.000.000 T20 as its wing rises than its $100 copy/paste interior :p

1. I only drive in first person hood view. Driver's seat view was annoying, and I don't do 3rd person anything in games anymore.

 

2. No

 

3. Full line of sight. I don't like my view obstructed by anything, especially a tinted window when I'm racing

Mostly 1st person. But I will change to 3rd person level 1 when I need to take a better look around. Then back to 1st person .

 

I like the view, the sound design, and the "immersion" of 1st person. 3rd person look like you are "driving" a toy around to me.

I always feel like i can drift my car better in first person rather then third.

I also should mention i do first person primarily if the interior looks good, Honorable mentions being the Carbonizze(?), Banshee, all Enus cars with Tan or custom color interiors and most lowriders.

3rd person lvl 2, my OCD wont let me use any other views. First person driving is a load of wank, your view is restricted like f*ck and its just a load of arse. Sometimes I use 3rd person lvl1 when driving, eg. in an Injection the camera is really far away in lvl2

Third person level 3 ride height high. Let's me see more around me. But I do drive in first person when I can. Love the engine notes when driving in first person. <3

I use 3rd person level 3 most of the time as it lets me have a better view of my surrounding.

 

I will occasionally use level 1 if I'm racing alone against the clock, as it lets you view the corners and the obstacles better so you can pass by them closer and therefore shave off some time.

3rd person level 1 for me. I do find that certain vehicles alter the closeness though of the view such as the armoured Kuruma or the Rebel so it is a bit further away than what I prefer and more similar to 3rd person level 2.

Depends on my mood and the level of douchebaggery taking place in the lobby. If it's going off I prefer a wider view of proceedings, so I'll generally avoid 1st. But for more leisurely cruises around LS it does add an extra level of authenticity.

Pro tip: there's an option in menu which makes vehicles third person camera fly higher.

First person, love it.

 

Most FP haters dont know that youre supposed to turn your head while driving so they all complain about how limited the view is.
