Undercover Camera Stabilizer + FOV BOOST


v1.1: Reduced height of the far camera slightly, added a guide for modifying the camera yourself.

This mod aims to provide a better-feeling camera during gameplay.

It consists of two core changes to the in-game camera:

1. Stabilizing the camera, by removing the effects for the camera that make it shake and vibrate and
zoom in and out when certain things are going on in the game. Unfortunately these effects are kind of
bad and tacky-looking in my opinion. But don't worry, if you want to keep them, I've made it easy to
just cherry-pick what changes you want and which ones you don't with this mod in the advanced installer.

2. Significantly increasing the field-of-view for every camera, which helps you to be able to see more
around the car, and gives a faster sense of speed overall. As well as minor positioning tweaks to better suit the
new fov settings.
-But it's not quite that simple. In the vanilla version of the game, the camera fov is dynamic;
it changes depending on your speed. The main difference with the modified fov settings is that
they are now always at their maximum fov instead of having to get up to speed for the fov to widen.
-And then with FOV BOOST XTRA version, these changes are taken a step further with more aggressive values.

-Recommended combo: Camera Stabilizer + FOV BOOST lite version
-For further increasing FOV, use Camera Stabilizer + FOV BOOST XTRA version, which could be better for displays wider than 16:9, or if you just like wider FOV in general.
-For a closer to vanilla experience, you may prefer to use Camera stabilizer by itself.


Required before installing:
1. If using the generic fix from thirteenag, just make sure to turn off the FOV
scaling setting by changing the value from 1 to 0 in the ini file for it.
2. NFS-VltEd v4.6 or newer
3. NOTE! At the time of making this mod, Project reformatted disables the bumper camera. There is an option to re-enable it inside the
installers if needed.

1. Open NFS-VltEd v4.6 or newer
2. File -> Import -> ModScript
3. Double-click the Easy Installer.nfsms file and follow the installer.
4. Save changes.

Hi, I found by downloading a Carbon mod (Carbon Battle Royale) that there are user interface commands in Vlt-Ed. It would fit well to your mod, cuz copying the mod contents with notepad is not the easier way...

Yeah, that's what i did, got the original values and set them up after installing the Fov mod, works good

For now you could simply cut out the code for the height adjustments before executing in vlted. Look in the easy install scripts folder and just open the FOV BOOST lite.nfsms in notepad and copy and paste the code into vlted, then backspace on the code you don't want to modify.Then execute the script. I made everything spaced out to make this easy.

I'd recommend going back to defaults before doing the camera adjustment scripts to make sure it's set correctly.
I did go back and re-check the far camera, and noticed it did sit a bit high. Not quite helicopter high, but kinda higher up than I remembered it being.
Checking the code I noticed I only increased the max height value of the camera from 1.5 to 1.6, yet it made a huge difference.
What I'll do is release an update for this with the Far camera adjusted better and also release a modding guide for it

Hey! Seems like you're having fun with Reformed, anyway, giving you some tips

Not sure if this happens because i was using the prostreet camera that is included normally in Reformed but the far camera gives me such a far and high position, like i'm being chased by a helicopter, i used the camera stabilizer and FOV lite. Perhaps you can lower it on the next update?
