Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

When I first got TS3, the camera movements made me physically ill within only a few minutes of playing. The first thing I did was start digging through directories until I found the camera file and quickly began making changes.

This is my camera mod for TS3. It gets rid of the 'drift' in freecam mode (tab), plus allows the camera to go down to ground level. It's not as involved as Gunmod's TS2 camera mod was, but hopefully it'll be useful for people. It's allowed me to actually play the game for more than ten minutes at a time, at any rate.

Want to get rid of the drift in normal camera mode? Buhudain has a fantastic live-camera mod that fixes the drift during game play!

Installation instructions: Install as you would any other custom content.

Updated 11.06.10 for Late Night
Updated 06.26.13 for Island Paradise - Please be sure to grab the 'IP' version if you find yourself having issues with the older file. (At this time I don't actually have Island Paradise, but I haven't heard from anyone that my updated version causes problems.)

Original file works with all EPs/SPs. Special package for Island Paradise now included.
Tested in all EPs with no problems.

Hi! I'm not sure about the mod files. Is the first one the base mod? Should I install both of them or just the last one?
Thank you for everything and sorry about my English

Default Issue
Does anyone have this issue: Rotating the camera with my mouse is excruciatingly slow from side to side. I love this mod but that makes it unplayable. Is there a solution for this?

Hi I have a problem ... I installed the mod to record a series, and it goes well, the problem is that when I pulse the tab and put ctrl 5 for example, the camera goes super fast, and before it was slow, as I had modified it in VideoCamera.ini
I deleted the mod and still the mod is still inside the game, I do not know how to delete it completely so that I run the slow speed as I had before. Please help.
