Description
This mod adds different camera positions to all objects that have a camera view. Existing views in the cameraConfig are retained. I was wondering that no mod of this kind exists yet, as Urban Games added this possibility in the last patch. So I came up with the idea to write a mod myself, which I would like to share with you :)


Views:

The views can be changed with Page Up and Page Down. Different positions are added to the following objects:
-Trains (more precisely, all locomotives/cars that have an engine)
-Trams
-Buses/Trucks
-Automobiles
-People
-Ships
-Airplanes

New: The driver view(s) and one passenger view is added to each vehicle.

No views are added to wagons (except the passenger view) by default, so you do not have to click through them. If you want to activate them, you can uncomment a line in the script.


Savegame compatible:

The mod can be added or removed without any problems.


Hints:

-The views were tested with a resolution of 1920x1080. They may look different at other resolutions.
-If a reversible train/multiple unit is reversed, the views start with the car, which actually would be at the front but is now last. If the reversed first car has a drive, you also get to the front after clicking through. The reason is that the positions are static for each model.
-The persons views are quite jerky. Please do not ask me why that is.

I chose the views, so that the whole vehicle can be seen, for example the plain views are adjusted to the largest plane (concorde). And to see a bit of the environment is nice too, I think.

at resolution of 1920x1080 the item (plane/train/etc) 3rd person view is so zoomed out that is a bit pointless to have... would you be able to add couple more views where the object is 50-75% zoomed in from current settings?Thanks

This is not possible via modding. The keys are only controlled by the game, in fact, UG even forgot to implement the opportunity to change the camera keys, so they are fixed to PgUp and PgDown.

Is it possible to add hotkeys(PgUp+1 …or something similar) for preferred views?

Update: With the new version some views have been added, especially for airplanes and people. You can now follow people everywhere, through the train station and into the bus or train, but it doesn't always look perfect from the inside, of course. Also, the view of the train driver/cockpit in the aircraft, etc. and the view of the first seat of each vehicle have been added. Have fun!

Die gefallen mir alle sehr sehr gut. :)

NO Porthole Perspective for plane?

@christianmc1101 Mein C2 Inspiro, C1 und BVG H und demnächst auch Tram Variobahn und Avenio (TZ) haben eine 90 Grad Kamera.
Ist aber fest und nur bei meinen Mods so eingestellt.
Das Problem ist, dass nicht alle Fahrzeuge gleich breit sind, wodurch allgemein 90 Grad Kameras schwierig sind.

Nice gemacht. Ich würde dir 3,5 Daumen hoch geben dafür.
