    Hello, nice to see work on a camera mod has begun. I don't know if this will help, but here is a camera mod for the first GRID that enabled 32 different camera angles:

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/0ixxnyk2bua79wa/Grid_Modders_Camera's V1.2.rar
    The cameras.xml files for both 1 and 2 look pretty similar.

    My favorite camera angle was one of the ones set way high up, so it was like playing micromachines lol. Here's a screen, this is what I'd like to see in GRID 2:

    I made a couple of changes, this interior already looks a bit better, but it looks like we will need somebody who can create some high res interior textures

    Ok I can now confirm that the old camera mod works with GRID 2. If anyone wants to use it, choose a cameras.xml file out of the mod I posted above and copy/paste it into each car models folder, replacing the original. (I used the Lamborghini one, in folder 'Lam' in the mod files) MAKE SURE TO CREATE A BACK UP OF ALL YOUR CAR/MODEL FOLDERS FIRST!!!

    Only track the high up camera angle has caused problems with so far is Chicago, because of the incredibly long train bridge above part of the track.

    this is a start
    if you ask me, i would put camera little more down and add fov to have better sense of speed
    i did not play the game yet to see how is the sense of speed in it

    I agree with dev0lver. Camera needs to be placed a little downwards. Looks great, though!

    Textures will be the easy part.

    The textures can be increased in resolution, but won't changing the actual cockpit model (the steering wheel for instance) cause problems with online compatibility? That's what I'm wondering about

    Yep I can't do anything about the lower poly count on the model itself, but the textures might go someway to helping with the overall view.

    I would imagine if tinkering with camera files on other titles have caused problems in the past regarding online play, (I don't know personally) then I would think it would surely be the same here.

    Not been around for a while.... but just got Grid 2 and found this thread... here is my progress so far .... found the Mod request thread first, so this work is in parallel to others it seems :)



    Early days and only 15mins on it so far, but it looks like there is no hi-res renders for the interiors in <drive letter>:\Steam\SteamApps\common\grid 2\cars\interiors\models

    Shame... but you can get rid of the blurriness easily if you like polygons... :)
