Field of view (FOV)[edit]

Fix FOV Editing

Vehicle camera settings, including FOV, are currently set per vehicle. For the external camera:

  1. Navigate to your installation path.
  2. From the installation folder, navigate further to vehicles/vehiclename
  3. Open vehiclename.jbeam with your text editor of choice.
  4. Navigate to the "cameraExternal" section of the jbeam file.
  5. Edit the "fov" property value to the desired external FOV, save the file, and reload the vehicle with CTRL+R ingame. The changes should take effect immediately.

For the internal views:

  1. Navigate to the "camerasInternal" section of the jbeam file. In some vehicles, this may be located in another file, such as vehiclename_body.jbeam.
  2. Find the lines that look like this: [0.0, -0.6, 1.65, 75, "f3rr","f3ll","f2rr","f2ll","f6rr","f6ll"]. These lines usually have comments, headed by //, which describe which camera angle they define.
  3. Edit the fourth value to the desired FOV, save the file, and reload the vehicle with CTRL+R ingame. The changes should take effect immediately.
