Alternative 1P view positioned at the rider's eyes

A simple option that moves the 1P view to the actual position of the rider's eyes (or a tiny bit in front of the visor) instead of using the arbitrary position defined in the respective bike mod.
All other view settings like pitch, tilt, lean heading stay the same, only the position changes.


This would cure the problem of vastly different 1P views between bikes (which is a real problem for onboard riders) and it should be very easy to implement given that a GoPro-style helmet replay cam already exists in MXB.

I was fiddling around with that helmet cam replay and accidentally made a rider eye POV, behind the visor. There is a garish tint but its not bad enough to harm the visibility, and it gives enough to see how head movement would look 1:1


Vini

Yes, I saw that.

Just to make this completely clear, though: This is about the actual 1P view you have when playing, not the replay camera!.

Raised this idea ages ago

The ability to link in a model exists using c_helmet and it just needs a view mode that locks the cam to the head position. At the moment it drifts around, I assume with whatever 1P camera 'damping' has been implemented for the various views.

Vini

I remember those threads but since I just discovered the helmet replay cam of MXB (ported version demonstrated by Mystic), I decided to try again with a simplified request.
Hopefully PiBoSo reads this as he is apparently focussing on GPB at the moment.

The cam is right in front of the visor pretty much centered. Imagine that with a bit more lean heading and customizable pitch and tilt.
