Enhanced First Person Camera
by LogicDragon

This is an obse plugin that enables a visible body when in first person. Also, any points where the game force switches to 3rd person (sitting down, getting up, knockout/death, etc.) are now in 1st person.

- The camera is now attached to the 3rd person head node, this could result in some head shake.
- If you notice the camera clipping into nearby objects, setting fNearDistance to 5.0 in the Oblivion.ini file may help.
- Bug with flickering horses and Nvidia graphics cards: try disabling ambient occlusion in the graphics card settings.

This plugin requires Oblivion 1.2.0416 and OBSE version 20 or above.

Extract the contents of this archive into your Oblivion's Data folder.

Delete "EnhancedCamera.dll" and "EnhancedCamera.ini" from your "DataOBSEPlugins" folder.

This mod should be compatible with almost everything except for other mods that modify the 1st person camera.
Mods replacing 1st/3rd person animations should work but some animations may not look right.

Note for Modders:
This plugin allows for compatibility with mods that switch to third person to play animations so they can now be played in first person. All that is required is to run "ToggleFirstPerson 0" and "player.PickIdle" within the same frame. Then the animation should play in a fake first person mode. After the animation is done playing, use "ToggleFirstPerson 1" to restore first person view.

Change Log
- Fixed a rare bug where you would enter fake 1st person when trying to switch to 3rd person if a default do-nothing idle was playing on the player.
- Improved zooming out of dialogue and fixed some minor bugs.
- Fixed the view briefly flickering to 3rd person during the transition to/from the sitting/riding animations.

- Added an ini file for configuring settings.
- Added the ability to detect when other mods switch to 3rd person to play animations and force them to play in fake first person.
- Fixed magic shaders only applying to the 3rd person body when in 1st person.
- Improved camera behavior during death/knockout. The camera is less likely to go underground and switching to vanity mode now works properly.

- Improved dialog zooming and reduced head shake while turning
- Fixed spellcasting visuals bug when casting illusion spells.

- Initial Release
