[KSP 1.3.1] Keep It Straight - Camera Persistent Mode (1.0.3 - 2017-10-11)

Recommended Posts

When I'm on a low orbit I prefer FREE camera mode, cause body I'm "falling to" has to be "below" :D

However KSP keeps switching camera mode to AUTO every time something happens: switched to far away vessel, ended docking etc.

So here is Keep It Straight - mod that saves camera mode between scene changes and restores it.

I bet mod is not "published" by admins yet, that's why it is not showed in "new mods" section and not accessible to others.

Grab it from here

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! I freaking hate the default camera behavior, and the old mod that made free mode the new default doesn't work anymore. This is perfect.

Actually, you are "half" correct... Its not published yet... But it's YOU who has to hit the "Publish Mod" button on SpaceDock...Once YOU hit that button, mods are pretty much IMMEDIATELY available on SpaceDock... Unlike Curse, or others, which seem to take up to a whole day or more to "publish"

Seems this is an easy thing to miss, which LOTS of people seem to do... :)

grats on getting featured on spacedock!

Also, the forum thread link links to a comment in the middle of the thread, not the OP.

Have a virtual keg!  This is a consummation that long has been devoutly wished.

@RealGecko I noticed that the version you have up on spacedock is listed as compatible with 1.2.2, but the included version file lists the max ksp version as 1.2.0.......just a heads up so you can update that if you have time.

Yep, did not update .version file for a while. Nothing to worry about unless you use AVC.

@RealGecko Just what I was looking for.  Does it/Can it work with Improved Chase Cam?

EVS doesn't change the camera mode, it only deals with the camera position and orientation. So I'd say there should be no issues.

New version of KSP is up, but I'll probably wait for version 1.4.1 next week to update this and create a new thread.

is it a normal process for ksp to have a patch in one week?

No, but this was announced.  One reason is to fix any immediate, obvious bugs, the other is for the Making History DLC
