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

Cameras are client sided, this is a client mod.

Can I enable this server-side or does it need the clients to have it loaded?

I'm not going to support this as it's too niche and requires unnecessary coupling to the PVEZ mod along with a mess of allowing configuration, which is out of scope for the behavior of this mod.

@xFellaTV Didn't you read my last comment?
I want to add the PVEZ Reloaded mod to the server and set up PvP zones in which the camera will be locked to 1PP, but I want to allow switching to 3PP in the vehicle.
Unfortunately switching then doesn't work in PvE zones where 3PP is normally enabled. Respectively, it only works when you enter the vehicle in 1PP mode.

@George7707 idk if you dump or something but you DONT NEED the mod on a 3PP Server this works only for Server who runs on 1PP LMAO. Change your Server to 1PP than you can use this Mod. (1PP = First Person - EGO) and (3PP = ThirdPerson - You see all)
George7707 Apr 25 @ 1:16pm 
@Wardog Because I want to combine your mod with PVEZ Reloaded. I want to lock PvP zones to 1PP with the option to switch to 3PP only in the car.
Unfortunately with your mod then there is a problem with switching the camera in PvE as I described.

Not sure why you installed the mod if you're using a 3PP server
George7707 Apr 25 @ 4:17am 
Unfortunately on my server with 3PP enabled the mod does not work.
When I switch to 1PP and get in the car as a driver, I can switch between 1PP and 3PP without any problems.
When I'm switched to 3PP and get in the car as a driver, switching between 3PP and 1PP doesn't work.
In the mod settings I have "DriverOnly": "true", "Whitelist":[]
I only have the mods @CF;@Dabs Framework;@Community-Online-Tools;@Vehicle3PP loaded so a collision with another mod is not possible.
Any idea how to fix this ?
