Unload camera position to clipboard


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

does somebody know the purpose of the new command 'Unload camera position to clipboard' (RAlt - RCtrl - ,) ?

Is it a short-term debug tool or is it here to stay?

 

I tried it with the F-86 and in the clipboard appeared: '-camera -281.609906 0.015943 646.375453 -cameradir -0.097645 -0.056033 0.993643'.

I tried the opposite way with 'Load camera position from clipboard'. I set the view to the other side of the cockpit and tried to upload the same clipboard content as seen above (RAlt - RCtrl - .)  . Nothing happend.  Is there another syntax for 'Loading' ?

With regards,  Martin Scholz

It is here to stay. Its used with the free camera view to save a reference to the terrain. Say you find a terrain bug, you use ctrl+F11 to move the camera so it is looking at the area, take a screenshot, then use the unload camera command and post the results in a bug report. The devs can use the output to load that position quickly to look at what might be bugged. It is much quicker and easier than looking at coordinates provided and having to manually find it.

You may be thinking of setting up snap views, which I've never messed with and can't help you there.

Thank you very much.

Well, I stumbled across this control bind today too while lurking for ways to record things.

 

As Martin already stated, the unloading (copy to clipboard works) just not the loading. Regardless of being a debugging tool and devs can easily load things with that (I wasn't able to find the above mentioned reddit post). It would still be a very very very handy feature if you can consistently save/load camera positions for the free cam without hacking the chase view cam of each and every aircraft.

 

Is the format just a different for loading the camera position? Or does the game require to be in a certain mode...namely debug mode? It's a pity, half the feature is there, just not the loading part. 

 

cheers

I came here to investigate this key bind too. It would be a massive advantage to be able to copy various positions and have a document that everyone using this feature would build on their own, over time. Notepad + this key bind would be a powerful tool to use for movie makers. Copy from Notepad++, Load cam position from clipboard and ACTION!

Edit: I tested it myself and it works in F11 view. You can copy the camera position posted by other users and load into the game to see the same view.
