Has anyone ever hit the "*" key on the numpad? It brings you down into a up close view of your character. You can see forward but not behind, you see in a sort of cone view.

I think, that everyone should be forced to play in this veiw. Once you get used to it, it really is more fun. The battles become more than just click here, click there, watch. They become exciting, moe stratgic. Thieves can sneak up behind players, enemys can amubush you from behind. You will acully have to look around for your enemy. People can hide behind rocks, trees, boxes, cliffs. It truely adds a more realalistic feel as well as just being 100% more fun to play. It even adds to RPing, you would be surprised how much it could cut back on Powergamers, just trying to PK. You finally get to see how small your halfling is compared to the trolls and Ogre.
Is there anyway that when a player logs in his view could be locked as this? It would truely help the module become the best around!

Edit, maybe make it where if you dont hit the * key on the numbad withen say... 5 min. Then you are booted. If you hit it more than once, then you get booted. Simple, yet effective. icon_twisted.gif

Norrec... you found that out ?
When? lol I've been playing in that mode for as long as I play nwn... I use WSAD to move around and can still check behind me by moving the mouse....

Blah =) Dont force someone to play in some way... some people dont like it... simple. You could try to make some script so you can only see things in front of you... but dont think thats actually possible. icon_exclaim.gif

Definitely, I agree with Error, I prefer a far more low profile view than that gives you. I like to look right over my character's head when I play most of the time. But I certainly like to be able to move the camera around for different situations.

well that view, is pretty cool, and talking to Nemor, in game i see his point it let's people sneka up behind you

BUT if biowear wanted people to have a limited view, it would be FIRST PERSON and not third !

so down with forceing people to force people to be forced !
