I DO NOT TAKE REQUESTS!!! Any messages sent to me or comments made on my pages asking to create a new mod or modify an existing mod that is not mine will be ignored and deleted.

I am considering the latest release of this as final and won't be offering support or making future updates to this mod.

Compatible with Enderal

What Is This?

I have always found it annoying that you would have to bring up the console in order to toggle free camera mode and adjust the speed. I looked for any existing mods that might allow it to be easily mapped to a single key but the couple I found didn't seem to work so well. I decided to put together my own little mod to perform this simple task.

Features

  • Toggle free camera mode and adjust the speed using a single keypress.
  • Toggle the HUD on and off.
  • Adjust the field of view.
  • Adjust the time multiplier to slow down or speed up the action.
  • Take screenshots with ability to temporarily toggle the HUD off the moment the screenshot is taken.
  • Screenshots can output to PNG, JPG, and BMP formats.
  • MCM menu to configure hotkeys and make adjustments to other settings.
  • Option to switch to third person perspective automatically when in first person mode so your character is always visible in free camera mode.
  • Option to automatically disable the HUD when entering free camera mode.
  • Toggle clipping mode to move through solid objects.
  • Toggle animcam for third person camera mode.
  • Hotkey to "Become Unstuck" when exiting free camera mode in certain situations causes problems in the game.
  • Option to clear all hotkeys so you can bind only the ones you want to use.
  • No more need for console commands!

This mod mainly deals with free camera controls. If you are interested in configuring other camera modes you should consider using Customizable Camera.

Known Issues

  • Screenshots only work in some form of windowed mode. You will need to set ForceBorderless and ForceBorderlessFullscreen to true in your enblocal.ini for a windowed full screen mode.
  • The time multiplier will be reset to 1.0 after using a bow. Skyrim does this because it slows down time for the Steady Hand perk and then sets it back to normal. This happens even if your character does not have the Steady Hand perk.
  • Equipping clothes/armor/weapons may not make any visible changes in free camera mode. This is a limitation of the Skyrim engine, but the problem goes away when you exit free camera mode.
  • Any issues you have when using the tfc console command will most likely happen with this mod as well since it does the same thing except with easy to use hotkeys instead of console commands. The Become Unstuck hotkey is available to try and get our of situations where you character gets stuck after using free camera mode, but it is not guaranteed to work all of the time.

Incompatible Mods

Play Random Idle - Will force you out of free camera mode and break your controls.

Permission

You can feel free to make translations, upload this to other sites, and generally share this with anyone you like without asking for permission so long as you don't try and make any money from this mod. I only ask that you make sure to give me credit for this work. You do not have permission to port this to Special Edition as this relies heavily on SKSE and I don't want to deal with complaints people may make about this not working due to the differences between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of SKSE that someone else did not compensate for. You also do not have permission to use any part of this mod in your own mods without asking for permission first.
