Third Person Camera

Outer Wilds is played from a first person perspective. However a main mechanic of the game is a scout probe the player can launch to take pictures, meaning the player character is fully modeled and animated. This gave me the oppurtunity to make a simple third person mod allowing the player to be seen.

While creating this mod I made several improvements to the players appearance from a third person perspective including animating the head to face the correct up/down direction, and making held items render correctly instead of only showing the first person view model. This led me to create a separate Common Camera Utility mod which was used to improve the appearance of the Freecam and Static Camera mods.
