First Person Camera Help

Post by Halconera » Sat Aug 08, 2020 1:58 pm

Is anyone else having an issue where the first-person camera (scent mode and regular) isn't tracking the direction your wolf is facing? My camera stays facing the same way even if my wolf is running sideways or in the opposite direction. I swear that it used to change where it was facing as you moved in pervious versions (Currently on Early Acess v1.0.4 on windows HP).

Is there a setting that I accidentally activated or is this a bug?

Thanks!

The headcam/scentview movement system was altered in a recent update.

The sudden change may take a little time to get used to, but now you can walk sideways to avoid rocks and trees whilst still facing the scent you are following. To turn, simply move the camera using the mouse/touch pad.

I'm unhappy with the change as well, but it's just something to get used to.

Same.. I thought it was fine just the way it was. I can't really multitask, now I'll have to be pressing the keys and using the mouse to look in a specific direction? It doesn't really help with tracking scents that well imho.
