    Set FOV in your game setting. Set it to smallest value and go back from there if it's too close. Iirc you can set it while at track too.

    Edit the FTruck_Cams.CAM file (in the vehicles\FTruck folder).
    Under LocalCam=COCKPIT
    change Fov=(60,60) to whatever you want (Try 35, 35 to start with, and work from there).
    Remember this is the default setting, so make sure you put the FOV on 'default' in the menu for this to work.

    You can also set 4 keys "Adjust seat fore/aft/up/down" on options/controls, for tune it into game
    There's a simple option called "Vertical Fov" on options/display for the same....:)

    Sorry I thought Onno meant he had already moved the seat as close as it would go.
    If you have set it as close as possible in the menu and by the keyboard, then editing the file I mentioned will move the default position and you can then move the view even closer.

    FOV is different from just position though right? Changing fov will affect the sense of speed etc too.

    I also thought the view was not quite as much to the front as I'd like (after full adjustment with the seat keys).

    There is this line separately for all cams in the cam file too:
    PositionOffset=(0.000000, -0.0, 0.0000)

    I'm guessing the 3rd value is the Z (fore/aft), so adjusting that should work?

    ^
    To confirm myself, it worked nicely. :)

    Changed it to => (0.000000, -0.0, -0.3000) and its was already significantly more in front.

    Yeah that'll do it. Those numbers are in metres, so you know. You basically moved the eyepoint an entire foot closer to the screen :p
