    Note (Please Read)
    - Adjusted "Dash-Cam" position can't be saved because it is not supported officially as default.



    Description (Features)
    - This Mod expands (maximizes) the range of the "Seat Adjustment" and makes the enhanced camera control possible.

    < Seat Adjustment (Camera Control) - Range >
    Preview_01.jpg

    - Enabled "Seat Adjustment" & "Adjustable FOV" (not only for Head-Cam but also) for Dash-Cam.

    - 4 FOV packages.
    FOV 25.0-35.0 (mainly for Triple-Screen)
    FOV 35.0-45.0 (mainly for Triple-Screen)
    FOV 45.5-55.5 (optimized for 16:9 aspect ratio Single Monitor)
    FOV 55.0-70.0 (optimized for 16:9 aspect ratio Single Monitor)

    In each package, every driving camera (except "Chase Cameras") has the same FOV range.
    So, once you have set the FOV in "Preferences" menu, you can use the same FOV for all driving cameras.

    Preview_03.jpg

    - The camera control range of each car is optimized for FOV 25.0 - 70.0.


    - 3 lateral positions

    Driver's Side
    Center
    Semi-Center (FOV 45.5-55.5 only)

    - Enabled the "Driver's Head" for "Center & Semi-Center Cameras".

    The Driver's Helmet can be displayed. This makes it possible to play with "On-board" style camera or "Over-the-Shoulder" style camera.

    You can enable/disable the Driver's Helmet (Cockpit Driver) in "Preferences" menu (as described above).

    - I could play the "Online Events" with this Mod and record my time on the Leaderboard.

    This Mod does not affect the physics at all, so it seems to be ok to play online with this Mod.



    About base camera positions
    (1) This Mod includes the following cameras.

    a. Head Camera
    b-1. Bonnet (Hood) Camera - Driver's Side
    b-2. Bonnet (Hood) Camera - Center

    c-2. Semi-Center Camera
    d. Dash Camera
    e. Bumper Camera (Higher Position)
    f. Chase Camera (Close/Far) (Default position. Changed nothing)


    (2) This Mod includes 3 packages, and each package includes the following cameras above.

    - Driver's Side Cameras: (a)(d) + (b-1) + (e)(f)

    Installation & Uninstallation
    - Please refer to the Readme included in the archive.


    Sample: Adjusted Cameras
    Codemasters added "Seat Adjustment" in their official "Modern Masters Update". And it makes what I wanted to do with Camera Mod possible. (Thanks to Codemasters for their support!)
    Here are several examples.
    :)

    <Dash-Cam: adjusted to "Driver's view with HUD Dial">
    Preview_04.jpg

    <Center Cam: adjusted to "TV On-board style view">

    Preview_05.jpg

    <Semi-Center: adjusted to "Over-the-Shoulder view">

    Preview_06.jpg

    <Center Cam: adjusted to "Center Dash-Cam">
    (Suggested by Vangelis pargiNOS. Thank you, pargiNOS! :) )

    Preview_07.jpg

    <Center Cam: adjusted to "Roof Cam with Tilt-Down">

    Preview_08.jpg

    <Dash-Cam: Now it's possible to adjust the fore-aft position of the Bonnet-Cam when changed the FOV>

    Very good job! Thanks

    But how can i change Bonnet/Hood FOV?

    Thank you
    1. Tommi-TAG
      Author's Response
      Thanks for your kind comment, Lukars. :)
      You can change the FOV of the Bonnet/Hood camera in "Main Menu - Profile - Game Preferences" menu, or during the event, in "(Paused) - Options - Preferences" menu.
      I think you can find "Camera Field of View" (FOV Slider) in "Preferences" menu. And you can change the FOV of all cameras (except Chase-Cams) with it.
      Also, you can move forward "Cockpit-Cam" or "Dash-Cam" to the outside of the cockpit (windshield) and use it as Bonnet/Hood camera. Please refer to "Preview 01 - Camera Control - Range.png" in the archive. You can adjust the Bonnet/Hood camera to your favorite position.
      Hope this helps. And thanks again! :)

      I've not been active on F1 2014 lately, sorry. But your camera mod looks awesome. I'll try it later.
      And I'm also glad to share the camera Mods with each other.

    Hey man,

    It's for these types of Quality of life-game-improving mods that i love the community. Great work!

    If I want to test for errors, and or revert to default vanilla views - is there anyway to uninstall it? :)

    Thanks in advance!

      Author's Response
      Thanks for your comment and kind words, John.
      Unfortunately, there is no way to uninstall the Mod. We have to restore the default file(s) from the backup manually.
      I've uploaded the default cameras.xml files on "Support" forum of this Mod. Please check my latest post on "Support" forum.
      Hope this helps. And please let me know if I missed out something.
      Thank you! :)

      Seat Adjustment ranges are set as relative values, and I had to input all parameters into Excel and re-calculate the values of each camera.
      As you mentioned, it was a bit tricky. But I could manage them with that way. :)
      Thanks again!

      I really want to if I can. But as I wrote in the Readme, "Seat Adjustment" is not supported for Dash-Cam as default. And it is only available by modding. So, I can't do anything about it, I'm sorry. But I also wish Codemasters would make it possible.
      Thank you! :)
