[KSP 1.11.x] Keep It Straight - Camera Persistent Mode (1.3.0) - 2021-01-07


Recommended Posts

This mod is no longer needed in the KSP 1.12.x


@RealGecko stopped supporting this mod and turned this over to me. Original thread is here: https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/143175-ksp-131-keep-it-straight-camera-persistent-mode-103-2017-10-11/


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.

No more, no less :)

Does anyone else have an issue with this not registering a change when docking to a space station? I.E., I dock to the station while in Free mode, and the station was in Free mode just before docking, but after docking, I'm in Auto. :confused:

Can you create an issue on the github? I test it when I have a litlle bit of time.

Edit: Tested. It's working as expected. Camera is maintained in selected mode after dock/undock.

I'm not entirely sure I agree. This mod keeps my camera from switching from Free mode to Orbital mode automatically during ascents.

Thank you for mentioning it. I will recompile it, because I didn't catch this problem.

Let me clarify: Without this mod, the camera automatically switches from Free to Orbital mode when periapsis hits a certain whatever, like 40 km ish. This mod prevents that switch from happening, which I like. I prefer to stay in Free mode and I don't like the camera switching by itself.
