The First Person Simulator - Featuring Realiview

Technical Details

  • In general, the mouse wheel or game pad triggers are used for analogue interaction and the left mouse button or face button bottom are use for digital interactions.
  •  Controllable parameters in material instances, allow quick changes to the general look of the walls, flooring, cabinets and glass etc.
  • The radio stations can be easily set with the radio's sound cue public variables.
  • Realiview - The two main elements to this camera system that will be immediately apparently different to a standard 1st person camera, are continuous object tracking and simulated transitional eye and head movement. If no user look movement is detected (mouse movement or right thumbstick), the "eye" will track the last object's surface and the "head" will translate the location of the eye however the eye will still track the same location until there is look input. This may initially seem quite distracting since it is non-standard however I highly recommend experimenting with its potential advantages in terms of both immersion and gameplay.
