Buhudain seriously releases something every month to better enhance my gameplay experience.

He recently posted an edit of Shimrod's Zoom-In-Cas Camera, that gives a slightly overhead angle, better framing the sim's face and matching the angle one would achieve in-game, to eliminate differences between the CAS and in-game appearance.

Check it out!

This might not be for everyone, but I was surprised by how much of a difference it made for me personally! :D

I'm gonna try this for sure, it would be great if CAS and "in game" had similar "looks", using similar camera angles! good post

Sorry...just spotted this. Have been cleaning all day, but I will try to get on for a little while tonight if I don't fall asleep first. Sleep

:D

Whether you use choose Buhudain's edit or Shimrod's original Zoom-In-Cas mod, I highly recommend having one in your game - not just for zooming in closer, but to prevent the camera jumping when zooming into things like accessories/etc. I forgot how the default camera works/looks like, I'm so used to the modded version. :D

I had some sort of zoom mod in one time but couldn't figure out how it worked! Embarassed I ended up removing it, but I still would love to have something like this. Smile

From what I remember, when Shimrod first released the Zoom-In mod, it wasn't supported for all screen resolutions, so some users were not able to use the mod at all. Fairly common screen aspect rations like 4:3 were not properly supported, so that might have been why it did not work when you downloaded it before.

Since then, support has been added for all resolutions, and Buhudain's edit uses the most up-to-date version. :D

But, basically, you'll just be able to zoom in much closer to your sim, you don't have to do anything special but hold down the zoom key longer (or use X,Z keyboard shortcuts).

I can't imagine not having the Zoom-In mod in my game, it really helps when creating a simmeh in CAS, as you can really zoom in (for instance when using the 3D eyelashes and adjusting the eyelash sliders to the eye shape of the sim you're working on).
I've tested the Buhudain's adjusted camera mod, but it doesn't help me much, so I'll stick to the original Shimrod version Smile

This is cas after adding Buhudain's zoom-in. I can sort of see the similarities between the cas pic and the in game pic. It would probably be closer if I had taken the picture indoors...I just love the outdoor pictures. ;)

I think I already have that closeness with my zoom. I need to reinstall the zoom mod and see if I can see a difference. I didn't know it just took holding down the z key a little longer than normal! It would be nice to be able to add the eyelashes (3d) and not have to constantly go in game, zoom in, see if they are on properly and then go back in case to readjust! What an awesome mod idea! hiho

I like the edit a lot actually, but I am on the fence about whether I actually still prefer the original by Shimrod hmmm, haha - I'm going to keep it in for a while and see how I feel, however, the default zoom definitely does not zoom in as close as Shimrod's edited camera. It's great for styling accessories as well, as you can get in much closer to things like shoes/bracelets, etc.
