Enhanced Camera

Garry’s Mod: Enhanced Camera

What is it?
Enhanced Camera, based off the Oblivion/Skyrim/Fallout mods of the same name, is an addon for Garry’s Mod that allows players to see their own bodies. The source code was originally based on Gmod Legs 3, but has been modified so extensively and the two now have little in common besides a similar goal. It can be considered in a beta state.

Why not Gmod Legs/Immersive First-Person?
Gmod Legs, as the title suggests, only shows the player’s legs. It also requires a server-side component to work properly. Immersive First-Person is entirely client-side, but doesn’t use viewmodels, modifies the camera origin (and thus breaks aiming), and either requires a strict camera pitch restriction or suffers a lot of clipping. Enhanced Camera, like the Oblivion/Skyrim/Fallout mods of the same name, combines the viewmodel and worldmodel and does not modify the camera origin.

What this addon can and cannot do
Enhanced Camera can:
  • Work on the client-side, even on servers without the addon installed, as long as sv_allowcslua is enabled
  • Dynamically change the player’s height to match their model if the serverside component is installed
Enhanced Camera can not:
  • Work 100% of the time if models have broken paths unless the optional serverside component is installed, though it works most of the time
  • Show your PAC3 customizations (yet!)
  • Show your shadow (you can use cl_drawownshadow if you want, but it won’t match your first person body or show your weapon’s shadow)

Console Commands and cvars
Client-side: All of these options can be configured in the Tools menu, Options tab.

Hey 'W R O N G', you are WRONG.

Jokes aside, yes it does go on the steering wheel, look at the Temporary Fix Version in the Discussions. It fixes the addon real nicely. :steamhappy:

i would have thought that my characters hands would be on the steering wheel of any simfphys vehicle but apparently not, any real reason or is it just typical addon cuckery?

That's exactly what my comment was about, if a fix has already been created, why hasn't the dev added the fix to this mod?
Maksman Jul 7 @ 7:36am 
maybe he is done with gmod or computer is busted or has a job and a life to worry about currently. also someone posted a link to his fixed version unoffical that you could install to the addons folder.

›X𝝣ᴎѳx_Ilɀ'ot] Jul 5 @ 1:35pm 
If it's so simple to fix it for us, why hasn't the addon been updated yet?
