Camera Button top#

The camera icon in the bottom right indicates if the view is currently a follow camera or free-roam camera.

Follow Camera

A follow camera remains centered on the selected vehicle. W and S zoom and Mouse RightClick rotates the view around the center of the car. If the view has not been manually rotated, the camera will stay behind the vehicle.

Free-roam Camera

A free-roam camera can be moved freely around the map using all of the camera controls.

Clicking the camera button toggles between the 2 camera modes. When switching back to the follow camera, the camera will automatically be positioned behind the active vehicle.

Vehicle Selection top#

The vehicle listed in the bottom right is the current active vehicle. This vehicle is affected by keyboard input. Selecting a different vehicle will change the view to the follow camera of the selected vehicle. The number preceding each vehicle corresponds to the number key to select the vehicle.
