This mod is targeted for 1st person only servers, it allows players to use the 3rd person camera, free cam, while in a vehicle. Upon exiting the vehicle, you should be smoothly transitioned back into the 1st person camera. This mod is compatible with DayZ-Expansion and all of it's vehicles including helicopters and boats. The camera is not saved upon leaving the vehicle, so each time you enter a vehicle you will have to toggle 3rd person camera view.

Do note server owners, you DO NOT have to have 3rd person enabled to use this mod, you can have your server config as 1st person only, and this mod will still work. You can load this mod on 3 person enabled servers, and not break camera views, but why would you need this mod?

Upon starting your server with the mod installed, a file called 3PPVehicleWhitelist.json will be created and defaults will be placed in there, vanilla vehicles and driver only 3rd person. This file is a whitelist of which vehicles are allowed to have 3rd person camera capabilities, place the class names of which vehicles you want in the Whitelist category array (you do not have to place the color variants, the base class will also work). If you want all vehicles to have 3rd person camera capabilities, you can remove all entries in the whitelist category.

DriverOnly - only drivers can use the 3rd person camera while in whitelisted vehicles
Whitelist - list of vehicles that can use 3rd person camera

Default Config
{ "DriverOnly": "true", "Whitelist": [ "OffroadHatchback", "Hatchback_02", "CivilianSedan", "Sedan_02", "Truck_01_Covered" ] }

Allow All Vehicles 3rd Person
{ "DriverOnly": "true", "Whitelist": [] }

Expansion Flight Vehicles (and Carrier Boat)
{ "DriverOnly": "true", "Whitelist": [ "ExpansionAn2", "ExpansionC130J", "ExpansionGyrocopter", "ExpansionLHD", "ExpansionMerlin", "ExpansionMh6", "ExpansionUh1h" ] }

Known Issues
- Configuring specific vehicles to have 3rd person camera can block 3rd person camera on all unspecified vehicles on a 3rd person camera enabled server (feature I guess?)
- Placing unknown vehicle class names in the whitelist, can cause the server to crash

I went out of my way to implement support for their vehicles 2 years ago. I do not plan on doing any further support if things change for them.

hello, there will probably be no possibility for sibnic owners to make a vehicle 3pp?
Wardog  [author] May 18 @ 6:45am 
you can do this by setting the DriverOnly setting to false in the 3PPVehicleWhitelist.json config found in your profile folder.

Hello! I just wanted to thank you for making this mod, it works flawlessly with vanilla vehicles as well as with every modded one i've tried so far. If i were to pick a single best mod out of all of them, this would be it. :steamthumbsup:
And imho, this should've been integrated in server settings by Bohemia from the very start.
