Weapon/Hands FOV (camera distance) changer


Recommended Posts

 

(at 00:19 onwards it's demonstrated how to use the command and what it does)

 

Long time ago TFP locked the hands/weapon FOV and set it to extremely low (45, lower than console games) because the hands model looked bad. Now they fixed the hands model (Magnum holding anim still looks bad but w/e) but the FOV is still locked to 45. I couldn't find other mods doing this so I decided to create this mod to be able to set the hands/weapon FOV to something more reasonable like 60.

This mod adds a console command:

wfov
wfov <number>
wfov 58

that changes the hands/weapon FOV. When executed without arguments (like wfov) it gets the current WeaponFov (by default I made it 60). When given a number (like wfov 60) it sets it to that number.

 

More technical info:

This mod is actually separated to 2 mods.

1) First is 0-FieryRiderCore which has the code for managing and storing custom options (Maybe it'll be useful to someone else). It creates a customPrefs.xml file inside <GameDir>/Data/Config where it stores the custom options.

2) Second is FOV Changer which adds a custom option and using it to set the WeaponFov.

Bonus mod:

Pistols AAA Aim Fov - Not a DMT mod. Just vanilla. Moves the standard pistols (that are normally in the game) away from the camera while aiming like it is in many AAA games. I think it looks better.

Do we just copy the folders to the 7 days / mods folder? I've tried doing that but the console commands are not recognised

This mod is used with the DMT modding tool. You put it into the DMT mods folder and compile it with DMT modding tool. It will place the necessary stuff in your game folder automatically.

Notice how the thread has DMT label. It also doesn't work with EasyAnticheat as any other DMT mod.

This doesn't seem to work with the latest build A19.3(b6) and the latest DMT (DMTv2.2.7623.23873).  
I had this working last week.  I had to update DMT today and its not working anymore.  

UPDATE: For some reason the way that was used for adding console commands is not working anymore. I'm looking for another way. BTW if you've used this mod you'll most likely have a file called customPrefs.xml in <GameDir>/Data/Config with the following content:

<preferences>
  <preference name="WeaponFov">60</preference>
</preferences>

You should be able to change the FOV from there (it requires reloading the game). If you don't have the file you can create it.

It should be working now. There was a bug in DMT. Make sure to download the latest version of DMT (DMTv2.3.7703.26414) and the latest version of my mod.
