No Camera Fade for Sims

Pretty simple! Normally when the camera, normal or first person, gets close to a sim, the sim will fade out. This is inconvenient for taking pictures. This simply gets rid of that!


I couldn't even get in this close before fading began.


That's more like it!

But wait, there's more!

You can get REALLY close.

Be careful, though!

No fade means NO fade. :p

Yes, I simply got sick of never being able to look at my sims. They fade away so damn far that it was just impossible.

It helps for videos, too. Sims walking past the camera was impossible before, but no more!

*smile* Nice pictures! That's a really good idea, thanks. One question: What is first person camera? The one you get by using "tab"?

OMG this is going to change the sim world! At least mine, anyway! I am excited to get to taking even more interseting shots AND seeing how artistic other users will get with theirs. Yay!

Editing ini files isn't safe anyway. When you patch, the game will explode in a giant ball of fire(the patching will stop and claim an error) until you replace it with the proper file.

Ini files made packaged do not suffer from this! :D

Does this work for objects as well, or just sims?

This is wonderful I hated the fade it has always been set to far. Even in TS2.

And I recognized the sim right off. GJ!

Thank you so much for this, but I don't understand how the last pic which has the camera further away from the sim than the 3rd pic those ends up like that? Shouldn't the 3rd pic be like that?
