Closer Space UFO Camera Questions (old mod works)

Forum rules
BEFORE YOU POST...

Remember that all mods available here REQUIRE Spore: Galactic Adventures AND patch 5.1. Patch 6\Bot Parts does NOT include Patch 5.1! (Some may work on other setups, but this is recommended)

Can't get a mod to work? Feel free to ask for help, there's always someone around to help out. Just make sure to include the following information:
a) Did you install Spore from Steam, Origin, or a Disk?
b) Is your game patched to the latest version?
c) Do you have Galactic Adventures?
d) If so, is it also patched to the latest version?
e) Where did you install the mod to?
f) What is the file's current name in the folder you installed it to?
This information is needed for us to help you!

Closer Space UFO Camera Questions (old mod works)

Unread postby MileHighGuy » Sat Feb 04, 2012 10:22 pm

Hi Davo, you seem to be the best spore modder around, so i figured id post here. Im starting to mod spore.
I am trying to make the spaceufo camera closer to the actual spaceship on-planet. Like the 2005 version.

Ive been looking here: gametuning~\spacecamera.prop.xml

<vector4s name="planetCameraDistanceFOV">
<vector4>
<x>3000</x>
<y>200</y>
<z>0</z>
<w>60</w>
</vector4>
(this repeats about 4 times)

I know the xyz are on like a 3d graph (still doesnt help much) , and the w is explained here
http://andrewharvey4.wordpress.com/2008/09/29/xyzw-in-opengldirect3d-homogeneous-coordinates/

This also looks useful:

<float name="planetCameraDistanceInterpolationRate">10</float>
and maybe a few below it.

What do the different instances of xyzw mean? am i looking in the right place? Can i get some input from some people? I will expiriment with different values when i have time.

I must have conflicting mods. If it doesnt work, i will try to recreate it.

Edit: It works (it conflicted with PlatinumSpore). I can look at it for reference now and modify it. Thanks for showing it to me!
