Use R2ModMan or similar to install.

There are lots of optional settings that can be configured using R2ModMan Edit Config for the plugin.


Press the Character View Mode key or select the option from the mini's radial menu to toggle Character View. Press the Look Around Mode key or select the option from the mini's radial menu to toggle Look Around Mode.

In Character View and Look Around mode:

``RSHIFT``+``V`` = Toggle Character View Mode
``RSHIFT``+``L`` = Toggle Look Around Mode
``RCTRL``+``Y`` = Move forward in facing direction
``RCTRL``+``H`` = Move backwards with respect to facing direction
``RCTRL``+``G`` = Turn left with respect to facing direction
``RCTRL``+``J`` = Turn right with respect to facing direction
``RCTRL``+``B`` = Slide left with respect to facing direction without turning
``RCTRL``+``N`` = Slide left with respect to facing direction without turning

Only in Character View mode:

``RSHIFT``+``Y`` = Tilt head up
``RSHIFT``+``H`` = Tilt head down
``RSHIFT``+``G`` = Turn head left
``RSHIFT``+``J`` = Turn head right

Only in Look Around mode:

``Mouse`` = Rotate and tilt head based on position of mouse (center of screen = no rotation and no tilt)

Note: Do not use the normal keys (arrow keys or the WASD keys to move while in Character View or Look Around mode.

## Configuration

R2ModMan configuration for the offers the following settings:

``Hotkeys`` = Set the keyboard shortcut for each of the hotkeys listed above.

``Field Of View Angle``: Determines how much the character can see to the sides.
``Max Head Rotation From Centre``: Determines how much the head can rotate and tilt off from center.
``Keyboard Rotate Head Angle``: Angle by which the head is rotated or tilted when using Character View mode.

``Reset Head Rotation``: If true, resets the head rotation and tilt to the default each time a mode is toggled.
``Default Head Rotation``: The head rotation value that the head is reset to.
``Default Head Tilt``: The head tilt value that the head is reset to.

``Start Render At Distance``: The view camera is place at the selected character's head. Normally the near plane
will not render the head because it is too close (which is what we want) but in some cases, such as large creatures,
the head may be larged and thius included in the render. Use this setting to adjust the distance to exlude the head.

``Head Rotation Scaling Factor Over Distance``: Adjust the rotation speed over distance from the center. A value of
1 means that the rotation remains same for the same amount of mouse movement regardless of how far from center the
mouse pointer is. A fractional value means that the rotation will slow down as it gets further away from the center.
Suggested values are between 0.75 and 0.5. Values greater than 1, will cause the rotation to increase as the mouse
gets further from the center.
