    FOV thread?

    I recall seeing an in-depth FOV thread posted by someone, can't seem to locate it now.

    Anyone know where it is? The guy broke it down in a very detailed post.

    It's in the settings > Camera menu. I have been playing around with this a lot. Inside SIM Racing recommended 65. I like anywhere from 65-75 in the cars and up to 85-90 with Karts so I can see where the Kart is at.

    I just used the calculator to get my number, and it came up 70 degrees (HFOV). Does this mean I have to set my cockpit view camera to 70?

    Or does that 70 represent something else?

    My problem is that if I select the calculated FOV tracks like Laguna Seca look like one is racing up a skyscraper and totally undrivable. Other tracks like the Glen are like driving with blinders on. I fudge and start with the calculated FOV and then adjust until the track elevations look more realistic.

    I don t understand why the FoV setting can not be set on the fly in the cokpit view. We have to try, load a track, ride, exit, change the value and so on up to find the good value. Not easy...

    It can on the PC. I don't have a current generation console to tell if it can on the console or not. There is a key binding option on the PC side for the backwards/forwards adjustment. Might be worth looking in the controls section to see if that's an option on the PS4.
