Third Person Camera Improvements

Step #228 in the Expanded Vanilla list

Featured in Mod Lists:
OpenMW offers an optional, improved third person camera that has a more modern look and feel from the default.

To enable third person camera improvements via OpenMW-Launcher:

  • Click the "Advanced" icon at the top of the launcher
  • Click the "Camera" tab
  • Check the box next to "View over the shoulder"
  • Check the box next to "Auto switch shoulder"
  • Check the box next to "Preview if stand still"
  • Check the box next to "Deferred preview rotation"
  • Note that not all improved camera settings are exposed via the launcher

To enable the improved third person camera via direct edits to the cfg file, add these to the [Camera] section of your settings.cfg file:

third person camera distance = 72
view over shoulder = true
zoom out when move coef = 60
preview if stand still = true

Please see the the official documentation for more information about these settings.
