Did a bit if scrolling and didn’t see anything on it, but I’d love an upgrade to the photo mode. As someone who will spend way too much time with any given photo mode in other games, infind this one to be severely lacking. I can’t move the camera around or zoom it in or out. Most other photo modes will stop the game, and I’d like that for this one, at least when playing alone. Obviously it wouldn’t be possible in MP, but if I’m playing solo, I see no harm.
This game is far too beautiful for such a tacked on photo mode.
I feel like photo mode in gz forces you to be resourceful in how you take pictures, and that feels much more fitting to the feel and atmosphere of gz.
If camera mode got a free cam, sure it would help to take landscape shots, but instead you could climb a mountain, fight some machines along the way and get a gorgeous landscape shot from the mountain top. I’d prefer the latter to just a camera i could spin up and into the sky myself
I am pretty sure camera moving distance would somewhat be limited by what the game has currently rendered already. Not to mention the issue of getting mowed down by a stray patrol of Hunters during your out-of-body experience.
In my opinion the best way to handle this would be if the game took a snapshot of what’s currently happening - pretty much a threedimensional freeze frame for you to walk around and then take shots in. This would allow us to create better screenshots from fighting scenes as well.
Missing the point? Yes. But how likely it is that the devs implement the photo mode free roam camera in January’s Update? I’d say slim to none.
What i provided is a way which can be used to achieve what OP likes to get with the current mechanics.
Look man, this is the Feature Request section. I’m requesting a feature. Do I expect it anytime soon? No. Would I rather have a more competent inventory system? Yes. But I would still love a better photo mode one day. Until then, I’ve been making due with what I have. I just wish I could have a little more freedom with it.
