Field of view (FOV)

Change self.fov in followcamera.lua[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\data\databundles\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.


Numbers that are too far from the default may cause glitches or otherwise make the game look strange. If you have any problems, repeat the steps but change the number to the default value of 35.
