[B3.1] bring back cams 2 and 7 please

Post by Omnixor » 27 Feb 2013, 19:26

in new stadium, cam2 is much less driveable than in TMF. also, cam7 works like in Canyon, I'd really like it to be TM1-like, where it simply showed track overview.

Cam 1 master race. By the way, TMUF cam7/8/9 actually is a freecam similar to TM²'s cam7, just that TM² has better controls. Much better controls, I might add.

but "start view" is quite dumb. why would I need to look at the car? showing overview is more logic imho.

and yeah, I drive on cam1 anyway.

It's not a small complain, many players don't like how the new cam2 is. Frostbeule had this to say: "The cam is too far behind, can't see details". Lets hope Nadeo doesn't ignore this.

After driving A08 for half an hour in cam1, I have switched to cam2 for once. Then I had to clean the floor.

I observed that in virages, the camera is not turning smoothely but rather in some steps.

Hello!
I am a Cam-1 player myself. And even though I never played with Cam-2, I think that old TMN-ESWC/TMNF Cam-2 is way better then the new one from today's opened public beta.
In addition, while playing online this night I heared lots of complains from Cam-2 players 'bout new Cam-2 view.
So, please bring us old Cam-2 back.

As for Cam-7 it's fine i guess. They just changed controls from numpad arrows to standard arrows and added very handy car location feature. Nothing to complain about.

cam 2 is not good now because the car is too far away, close car is better to see how near we can pass to a wall.

I too discovered that the camera I've played with since 2006 (cam 2) is very different in this game. It would be interesting to know the reasons behind this change, because the other cameras are unchanged as far as I know, so why this change with cam 2?

Personally I don't see a good reason for this change. The camera is now further away, which makes it harder to see the details ahead. I feel like I can't play as good anymore with the camera because of that. Also it sort-of makes me dizzy. So for the moment I'm playing with cam 3 which I find much better. And it seems like many others are avoiding cam 2 as well by either switching to cam 1 or 3.

And I would suggest that if you don't want to remove this new cam 2, then why not just keep both the old and new? I think it wouldn't hurt if people got more choices as to what camera they want to play with. Perhaps the best way would be if it was fully custom-able even.

indeed, there are enough buttons for cameras. maybe add track overview on num9?
