(Oh So) Real Onboard Cams by shnala 1.3

NOW YOU CAN PIT WITH ANY OF THESE ON BOARD CAMERAS! + many more! ;)

    (oh so) REAL onboard cams by shnala
    version v.1.3
    ALL NEW SCREENS, v.1.3, CHECK THEM OUT!!!

    (oh so) REAL onboard cams by shnala.jpg
    NOW_YOU_CAN_PIT_WITH_ANY_CAM_YOU_LIKE! =).jpg
    pit with any cam (check in options/difficulty - pit cameras MUST BE OFF)
    And look how back facing T-cam looks now:
    _shnala_01.jpg
    Edited FOR ALL TEAMS:
    T-cams (named "pod")
    _shnala_02.jpg

    _shnala_05.jpg
    Cockpit cams (named "head-cam")
    _shnala_03.jpg
    Bonnet cams (named "bonnet")
    It become something much better now. On this Lotus example it's the left one on bottom row.

    lotus_1.3.jpg
    Bumper cams (named "bumper")
    Some small adjusments.
    Only for McLaren:
    Chase close cam (named "chase_close")
    For some reason McLaren "chase close cam" was not so "close" like ALL other cams, so I copied distance from other team, and now it look same as all the others.

    _shnala_06.jpg

    Proof that (first) cockpit cam is in the right place! ;)

    Since I really love to drive with T-cam (yeah, I know that's not how real drivers drive but, eh, this is not real car after all) my main focus was on them. I found great (french) site with great on board footages. They review basically whole race trough T-cams! Here's the link:

    Installation:
    Unzip into your F1 2014 folder - "cars" folder goes into your F1 2014 folder. You have to be asked to overwrite existing files, then you'll know you did it right. Don't worry about backup, I've already done that for you - each team folder has two files, one "cameras" which will replace your cam file and the other "cameras___ORIG", which is a backup.

    You also got 2 folders where you can see all the shots I taken from live recordings plus these shots I attach here and also some that can't fit into this post plus! many new, team by team presentation, from new version 1.3. I know you're gonna love this detailed comparison! :geek:

    Don't steal my (hard;)) work, if you want this mod to be a part of some your own project - ask me please for my permission.
    Don't make money out of this one (leave that to Cody guys:D) this is and should always be FREE.
    Thanks to Codemasters to this fine series, Ryder for his BXML Convertor and this great, great, community! Proud to be a part of it.
    Sorry for my English, I've learned Russian as a foreign language. :D
    I bet you didn't read it all but hey... I have to try. :)
    OK boys and girls... that's it for now...
    Have fun. In your life and with this fun game.

    Very, very good mate! Thank you :D
    I've got a question:
    Can you create a camera view for racesims? So a view without the steeringwheel, but with the nose in front and perhaps even the mirrors as well?
    This because i've got a gaming steeringwheel with second-screen dashboard.

    Thanx in advance!

      It IS possible but to tell you the truth... I stop working on this mod since I almost never play this game now, it have it's great sides but F1 2015 has a much better FF for me. Or maybe for my wheel.
      If you really want this really hard, maybe you can do it for yourself, it's not that hard. You can do it in Notepad, just have to realise which camera is which.
      I will help you with any advice you need.

    Too many unplayable cameras, the only one playable is the original.

      Wow. What a conclusion !
      Somebody give this man a cigar !!!
      Am I guilty that I made some 5-6 more NEW cameras ?
      Am I guilty that they are not "driveable" - FOR YOU ?
      So what ?
      They are, perhaps, perfectly driveable for some other. Beside, they can be used for replay, you don't have to drive with them. Just an idea. :P
      And, you "reward" my multi-hours job of making them and moving on their correct positions by giving me one star ?
      Here, next time (for F1 2015) YOU make cameras for us, I'm sure you will done much better job ! ;)
      Btw, what's "original camera" I was wondering... you're funny you know... I change ALL cameras so much that I freely can say that there's no such thing as "original camera" anymore.
      I own them all. But you wouldn't understand that...
      Thank you.
      bye

    In races, the camera isn't focused the car - it just floats in mid-air and stays there. I just watch the car that I am driving go past when the race starts and the camera just stays watching the start line. Can not remove this mod for some reason, even after uninstalling then re-installing the whole game. Thanks to this, my F1 2014 game is permanently broken.

      Well, from the, let me quote it -
      "Total Downloads: 7,116" (on this day, 29.5.2015)
      - you're the only one who reported this problem. :-S
      I mean... I'm sorry that your game is "broken" but I sencerely doubt it got anything with this mod. Or you didn't install it corectlly. If you got anything to say or to ask I'm here, there's "discuss this mod" section but, please, keep it civilised.

      well... compliment coming from you - have some extra weight, let me say this way. :) You're one of my favorite modder and it means a lot to me that you like this. Yes, you do this stuf and you know that this is really time consuming, edit, test, edit, test and then, when you finish - next camera comes. :P And then only repeat it for another 10 times. For all the teams. XD
      Thank you vlasovas, once again. And if you have some advices or cam requests... feel free to tell me.

      Author's Response
      Sorry bout that... I clone upper image cuz colour of the McL skin looked so unrealistic. But cam is where it really is, so I didn't try to cheat. If some1 make that kind of McL, the angles would look exact the same! thank you for your vote btw :)

    Great job, but I want the original cockpit camera. I would say as I set up the camera?

    Try putting the original files, but the cockpit camera sees everything in black and the other with no problem.

    PS: Sorry for my bad English, I speak Spanish
    1. gamer19
      Author's Response
      You have original files (in every team folder) named "cameras___ORIG", look for "head-cam2" and copy/paste (only first 20-30 rows are important) from ORIGINAL to my modified files.
      ONLY COCKPIT cameras, I say once again!!!
      My cockpit position is as close to reality as possible but you can't please everyone...
      Good luck with your modding. And tell me how is it gone.
