About this mod

Changes the position of your camera to your character's shoulder

Permissions and credits
  • Changes the position of your camera to your character's shoulder
  • This is a modified version of First Person Mod

Additional features compatible to this mod:
  • Weapon Slot Mod - Gives additional two weapon slots for Ranger & Wing Diver, can also use the same weapon (requires new save, crashes on old save, backup old save first before using)
  • FOV Patch - For aesthetic purposes, gives-off an immersive realistic-looking scale of surrounding environment (limited to x1.25 zoom and can cause visual glitches)

  • Requires BlueAmulet's EDF Mod Loader to be installed first in the game in order for the mod to work
  • This is only for EDF 5, and might not work for 4.1. EDF 6 already had a built-in feature that allows you to change camera in-game
  • This mod is untested in online multiplayer, so there's no guarantee it'll work or not (assume it'll only work in single player)


Update #1:
  • I completely forgot to add ReadMe in the mod file, and I apologize about it 🙇
  • I also merged the two FOV versions and you can select your preferred mod there
  • I added another version that has compatibility with Weapon Slot mod, using it requires you to make a new save dedicated for that mod, it won't work on old saves, make sure to create backup of your old save if you plan to keep it for future use

Update #2:
  • Fixed the issue where the camera pans too far, I apologize for this as I didn't test the files before publishing, ends up being rushed and left unfixed for months
  • Removed "Inverted" version, and simplified the file structure, to make it less complicated and more convenient to install

Update #3:
  • Changed camera position exclusive for Fencer as he is too bulky and blocks the screen when applied with same camera position that other class uses

Update #4:
  • Added actual files for Weapon Slot mod (I completely forgot! Sorry! 😭🙏)
  • Edited the instructions for installation and zoom toggle, added special note for using the mod with Weapon Slot
