Camera Focus Changer

Ever wished the camera wasn't anchored to your ship's center of mass? With "Camera Focus Changer" (CFC) you can now change the focus of the camera to any part of your ship you desire! Even better, you can have the camera focus on a nearby ship. Very useful when trying to target that docking port that is just so slightly out of sight.

To use this plugin, simply press the 'o' key while the mouse is hovering a part to have the camera center on it. Press it again to have the camera instantly snap into position. Press the 'o' key while the mouse isn't hovering any part to have the camera reset to the center of mass.


  • It is recommended to be within 350m of an other ship to focus on it.
  • It is possible to change the key-binding in GameData/CameraFocusChanger/PluginData/CameraFocusChanger/config.xml

Known issues:

  • Focusing on an other vessel while "flying" doesn't work very well.
  • Focusing on an other vessel while steering the current ship will make the camera bump away.
