Q: The free cam sends me out in space... [And other free cam issues]
Sadly, I don’t think this is an issue I can resolve. When using the free cam console command in vanilla Skyrim, I’ve encountered the same issue, so I think it’s something to do with the game itself and not an issue I can fix. But, I will look into it.

Future Plans

Now that version 4.1 is out, I've achieved most of the goals I started out with for this mod. Still, I intend to add more features. For now, this is a list of my priorities:

- Add TCL command
- Look into a zoom function.
- Take suggestions from you guys
- Stamp out any bugs I find, if possible
- Work on my WIP mod
