Field of view (FOV)[edit]

Fix Change followcamera.lua

  1. Go to <path-to-game>/data/scripts/cameras/
  2. Open followcamera.lua.
  3. Find the line beginning with self.fov.
  4. Change the number to that of your choice. Higher FOV will lead to a wider angle, lower to a narrower one.
Information Note that numbers that are too far from the default may cause glitches or otherwise make the game to look strange. If you have any problems repeat the steps but change the number to the default value of 35.
