    Marks Cams v3 - All Teams
    ------------------------------------

    Higher and Back more from Steering Wheel Compared to Default.
    * closer & lower than Marks Cams V1 or V2)*
    Only Cam modified is the Cockpit cam. Shake effect has been reduced.

    Backup of original cam is included so you may safely overwrite existing default cams & restore them later.

    Thanks & feedback is greatly appreciated. Cheers Mark Blanes :)

    ***NOTE ***
    The cam files are tables that the Ego graphics engine uses to render the car cockpits & these modified files are 100% my own work using only the Default Cams as reference. I have not copied or used any other Cam modders files.

    Even with screenshots I can't really see difference... But your 2 first packs were great so V3 cam pack should be even better ;).
    I'll give you feedback asap.
    Thanks for your work.
    Just a question : do you know if cams has changed with last game updates ?

    Nice. I still prefer v2 for my Red Bull, as it positions the mirrors nicely over the wheels so the view is unobstructed.

    Hoping there will be a v2 + HUD version? If not can you tell me what to change in the cameras file?

    @ mydriaz - In v3 I have dropped the camera height and moved the cam closer as compared to my v2 as a few people previously requested this from me. As for patches, they do not usually touch camera files and the latest ones have not either.

    @ Flouncy - Yes mate I will finish v2 and add a HUD version for you... at the moment it may take some more days as I go back to work today and I work 10 hour shifts - sorry :(

    I would also like to re-state that these camera modifications have been worked entirely using only the default camera file provided by Codemasters. I modified the Y axis ( camera height ) and Z axis ( seat depth forward and back ) as well as parameters for wind and bump that affect head movement, because the default shaking/vibration caused me dizziness & nausea after some time racing.

    I have NOT used any other mod cams available to copy or even for reference, they are positioned according to MY preference and if others like to use them then that is great, if not fine as well.

    I do not claim any special status or fame for modifying these textual/numeric files and anyone with a moderate level of knowledge can do exactly the same with a few editors freely available.

    It can be time consuming but it is fun & free and anyone who claims otherwise is bedazzled by the reflection in their own mirror ! :roflmao: ( the Aussie saying is too crude to print here ) ;)

    Thanks, Mark Blanes :)

    Hey mate, thanks for coming up with some nice cams here.

    I appreciate the chance to have some choice in the cams and really look forward to a Tcam that you speak of above.

    Thanks for your time and effort into these.

    Cheers.

    Amazing work, blanes. I really enjoy your cams, and i belive that you made them yourself!
    Don´t give up doing what you think is right and ignore what others might say, because in the end, what matters is the people that liked your work and use it to have a better driving experience.
    As for myself i´m finishing what will be a great TV-style camera mod. It will be a surprise for all and something never done before.
    Thank you, and keep up your brilliant work!

    Yep, that's all there is to it. Keep a backup of the original files just in case you ever want to go back.

    This is easily my favorite cockpit mod but I would REALLY appreciate being able to use the HUD with it... Can someone tell me how to switch this on or can Mark add this in a new version? Thanks very much.
