Having more camera tilt or a third person mode would make the game more immersive
Right now I feel I am not able to... use my eyes and look in front of me
It feels highly constrained to me. An extra 10 degrees of tilt would be very well received.
Have a keybind for toggling action camera mode.
This locks the camera in place behind the player character, like in a third person view.
This is a QoL suggestion, so you don't need to align your mouse cursor above the player's head and hold RMB all the time.
rmb to turn camera can be toggled on and off with a click instead of having to hold down the button
Please officially add support for 3rd Person Camera (WOW/SMITE camera mode).
The ability to move the camera further below the current isometric limit would be brilliant! The ability to play this isometric or behind my character would be more freedom to admire the world and my character. The ability to disable the HUD opens up loads of possibilities for screenshots as well.
My buddies and I figured an option to toggle right click to control the camera could be a nice QOL option
Hello, I would like to suggest the option to rebind Zoom in and out. Currently you can only scroll up and down, perhaps adding it as an option to rebind in settings. Also being able to use mouse wheel scroll up and down as binding options also such as Hotbar 1 could be set to scroll up, and Hotbar 2 could be scroll down. Also Shift + key or Ctrl + key. Binding for self-casting shield abilities would be awesome as well!

The Moderncamera mod address the tilt needs superbly. Although it adds 1st person an 3rd person perspectives, which I think are unnecessary outside of screenshot purposes. Having a screen shot mode would be great. As to the OP, I felt exactly the same way, that the vanilla camera controls while a good angle.. were far far to limiting for what should be visible in perspective for movement/combat/exploration purposes. I often thought this must be similar to how horses feel when pulling wagons/carts with peripheral blinders on, obviously not exactly the same but analogous in regards to the current viewability limitations.
They should literally just incorporate the camera mod everyone is using into the actual game. Feature is done imo xD.

3rd person, probably not, allowing us to see a little more forward, definitely!
I would like to move the camera just by moving the mouse like in most survival games instead of using right-click to move the camera.

I totally agree, there are many times where I want to enjoy the view, simply want to look at what's in front of me, or follow the movements of the Winged Horror, but it's not possible with the current camera.
The combat system requires to be in constant movement and this imply while play I constantly need to spin the camera while fighting, It would be of incredible use to have a button to lock the camera pointing on the vampire point of view or a button to automatically mve in that direction.
This can greatly help to mave combat more fluid

There's a mod that change the camera view, it makes the camera to be similar to the "New World" game, the mouse locks when you are walking, fighting etc and releases the mouse button when you build, use your inventory and things that you really need the mouse arrow, and if you press a key (that you can bind it) it releases it to move your cursor to do whatever you want (like the blood type of a victim for instance), I think that could be a PERFECT change on the game, due to it's terrible keeps the RMB pressed all the time to walk
Yes! I want to be able to see at ground level. It's really hard to appreciate your castle if you can't see it from eye level. It's not as grand or imposing!
Regarding more camera-angles... look at what I found on YouTube just recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPIYqg-FSYsWhat an pleasure-gasm that was for my eyes!!If this would become a feature oh my god the game would rock!Who cares about some minor glitches and wierd sights for a few seconds?This is the stuff man. Uh~m! °chefs kiss°
Yes please! I know the main core gameplay benefits from the current camera style, but it would be nice to have the option to move the camera freely. The world is actually beautiful, and I'd like to experience it in closer view.
Yes, yes PLEASE. Even being able to turn off the UI to take screenshots would be spiffy, but please for all that's holy let us change the camera angle.
RE to above: I did already make a post/request about having an option to remove the game objectives from the hud on the top left. With regards to the topic of this post though, I agree. Slightly more camera tilt so that we can see from the road above the windows of castles that are on cliffs would be nice. My girlfriend also mentioned that she would love to have a third person view to feel greater immersion. Maybe we can put an option in to switch perspectives. So if you want to momentarily look at something from 3rd person, you certainly can. This would work well with sitting and emote actions too.
Just want to add my voice to this. Coming from 20+ years of playing WOW, the camera functionality in this game is really jarring and hard to get used to. Is it possible to give us the option for controls that mimic WoW/Diablo with attack locked forward (not independently controlled) and character rotation able to be assigned to A & D instead of strafing?
would be amazing!! i'm playing with 3rd person mod and the game is really incredible, non-proportional extra advantage (rather the opposite) but gives much more immersion and it make me feel like a real vampire. is really worth for me
The current speed that I'm allowed to rotate the camera around myself with right click feels very slow to me -- but it's probably perfect for other people. Please add a slider in Options to allow this speed to be modified.
I'd like to have a closer 3rd person view of the world and the action!

The 10% additional camera tilt with Gloomrot is barely noticeable. I don't understand the need to force players to use a top down view when the devs could so easily just release the camera so you can play 3rd person over the shoulder. When I zoom in to see the world in detail, my field of vision is so restricted it isn't even playable. This is a fantastic game--don't ruin it by insisting on a restrictive camera angle and field of vision. Let players have the perspective they are most comfortable playing from!

please, the old 3rd person mod doesn't work with new update. I want to play enjoying the immersive environment in 3rd person
I have been enjoying the game a lot and after recent gloomrot expansion we have been experimenting with a mod called ModernCamera which gives a whole new perspective view on the game and makes it much more enjoyable as we can see the assets and details that have been put into the game.
It would be great if this could be a vanilla feature in the game and allow you to have a follow view behind your character as option apposed to always top view.
I don't know how easy this would be to add in but it would be nice if there was an option to toggle between rotating the camera and using the cursor rather than needing to hold the mouse click to rotate. I feel it would allow for more fluid combat if there was a toggle that centered the cursor when activated seeing as the cursor is more useful in building and picking up specific items and less use full in combat. The people that use area targeting abilities can still play as they have been by just not using the toggle or activating/deactivating it when they want to.

i would love to have completly controll over my ancle of view, its alot annoying it u want to look on something and u hit an invisibel ankle that prevents u from looking on it, in conan exiles as example u have full control on ur ankle of view and u can watch from every sight possible to were u want to look at, plus u can zoom out alot more then here...
I still offer blood harvests to Dracula every day in the hope that the devs will free up the camera. Yes, I know and understand that there are games made specifically for top-down camera that simply won't work in third person. But when you have such nice scenery, a decent clipping distance and great ground level details like in this game, it genuinely feels more natural playing with the Modern Camera Mod, especially in a game with such fluid controls and combat system, it just makes the game that much more appealing. Without the mod, the restrictive camera reeks of artificial limitation and you end up in a constant tug-of-war with the mouse as a natural reaction to pitch the camera up.The mod does the job but, I don't want to be dependent on a mod to add a vital function to a game, the mod already had compatibility issues after updates. Official options to adjust pitch and zoom limits will be the best bet.
A free-moving camera when building at least would help with applying wallpapers, etc. to higher walls.
Hello. The range of camera view is very limited. Is it possible to widen the range of the camera to see more vertical and horizontal?

I suspect I'm unusual in this, but the way I prefer to control my character in combat is to mostly put the cursor directly above my character and then hold down right mouse most of the time.
I would kind of prefer it if when I held down right mouse, it always treated my cursor as being directly in front of my character. I don't think it should necessarily move the cursor, just make all your attacks go straight forward.
