What can this mod be used for?
With all the additional key-controls that modern vehicles and implements now has, it is not always feasible to switch between keyboard, mouse and steering-wheel all the time, as it may cause driving errors or worse… So to look quickly around, this QuickCamera mod introduce “quick-tap keys” for both cabin camera and external cameras of a vehicle.
Make sure you go into ‘Options’ -> ‘Controls’ in the game, and assign your own keys to the “QuickCam:Look…” actions.
Now in-game, quick-tap the key that you assigned to the ‘QuickCam:Look 45° Left’ action, and the camera will rotate to the next 45-degree angle to the left, and so too for the ‘QuickCam:Look 45° Right’ action. To look backwards, quick-tap the key that you assigned to the ‘QuickCam:Look backward’ action, and like so for the ‘QuickCam:Look forward’ action. You can also toggle between looking forward/backward by assigning a key to the ‘QuickCam:Toggle look for/back’ action.
If the selected camera is capable of zooming, a quick-tap on your ‘QuickCam:Zoom out’ key, will cause it to zoom out 15 units at a time. And likewise for your ‘QuickCam:Zoom in’ key.
Remembers camera position and direction
When switching back and forth between vehicles, the last selected camera and its position/direction is now remembered.
This option can be toggled off/on using the ‘QuickCam:Toggle auto-reset’ action (default LEFT-ALT K), if you want to revert back to normal.
Remember though that these positions/directions are not saved between game-sessions.

RIGHT – Look 45° right
LEFT – Look 45° left
UP – Look forwards
DOWN – Look backwards
END – Toggle look forwards/backwards
