[Feature Request] Module (Live Feed- Set Source) should set "target" default as what source sees, not the player
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In the current state the live feed module has plenty of potential, but seems under-developed.

Specifying a target should only seem necessary in very niche cases, as many times one simply wants to invoke Live Feed PiP to see what another NPC "sees". Instead if a target is not specified, the camera feed seems to use the player as a "default" target.

If this was changed to allow the default target as whatever was in the "source" NPC's field of view (eg: First Person NPC "helmetcam" in lieu of the floating camera), immersion would be enhanced greatly.

Additional Information

There has been enough demand for this feature to be implemented that others have begun work on mods to meet the demand.

Here is an example of such a helmetcam mod working in the Arma III environment.

It appears to be easy to implement, and would be a VERY welcome addition to "Vanilla" Arma.
