Free-look is restricted when walking up steep hills
New, WishlistPublic


When walking up a hill steep enough to force the player to walk, freelook is restricted so the player cant look higher than a set angle.


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Go into the editor and spawn an infantry unit on Stratis at coordinates 063046
  2. Face Azimuth 317 and move forward while raising your view as high as you can
  3. Notice how the steep parts of the hill (steep enough to force you to a walk) force your free look to be lowered
  4. Stop walking. Notice you once again have unrestricted free-look
  5. Begin walking again on Azimuth 317. Notice you are unable to raise your view above a set angle
Additional Information

This is very similar to previous free-look bugs when carrying a launcher. Mouse control should never, ever be taken away from the player.

I can confirm that issue too.

As long as you don't move your character, you can aim normally.
But if you walk forward, you are restricted to a much lower angle.
From my point of view, that doesn't feel right.
