So i was think, i love how this is immersive with the first person and you can see the body/hands and everything, and thought "thank god they didn't go 3rd person and went full on 1st person" , but even though without a second thought that i want first person, is it possible to have the "option" to go to 3rd person mode? this is a first person game, but would love to have the option to go in 3rd person mode.

Personally, I love third-person. I like having the extra vision around me, and I like being able to see my character, especially when I customized them to make them look unique. On the other hand, it really does hurt immersion, especially in a game like this. So, I guess I'm conflicted at the thought of it. Maybe have 1st person while diving, but 3rd while out of the water?

Not so easy to implement for the Oculus Rift which requires stereo cameras and uses headtracking. If you switched out to a 3rd person view I think it would be disorienting and add to possible nausea.

But I think it would be a good feature to be able to toggle in and out when a Rift is not connected.

that sounds like the best idea. have it as a feature when you are not using the OR because otherwise i def agree it's going to be very disorienting.

Totally agree with Makoto, yet having it optional as Boeje stated would be best.

I would really like a 3rd person mode - first person often makes me motion sick.

We have only first person for now. For gameplay purposes we want to stick with that for a while. A button to switch could be added later on.

I'd like both first and third person modes. First person is great for using the camera and interaction with marine life while third person is great if you're using the sea scooter or swimming long-distances.

Thanks for the anwser! I know it is more realistic with the first person view but a possiblity for a third person view would be nice in my opinon. :)

Can't be too hard since it is all modeled and already for others. It's just a camera change.

If anything, a third-person view would let us see our customized avatar/character in all his/her glory!

I do not know if anyone was paying attention but there was a dev in this thread :P

Basically at this time there are no plans for 3rd person but that could change in the future.

While I personally like 3rd person there is a valid point about the Rift and the realism standpoint. So I would propose it be restricted to arcade mode and not sim mode.

Well.. Not to sound harsh, but we simply can't please everybody right? It would also be a shame to spend time and resources (money being a big one) on a function only 10% of all players will use.

The percentage is just a number, I know it would be higher for this one, but I just wanted to say this about features in general

Guess her "diver down flag" is up... =p

Anyway, I was talking about the features most people don't want, so your Spawn Cake is a different story ^^
