This mod by MacroN changes the field of view to 90 degrees.
What's new in v1.3:
Clear Sky v1.5.04 - 1.5.07 support added. But only for versions patched with RELOADED nodvd. The [EFIGS] nodvd v1.5.07 also is suitable for russian version of the game.
These patchers change FOV (field of view) to 90 by direct editing of the xrgame.dll.
With expanded FOV (Field of View) appears the sense of dynamics at movement, other perception of surrounding, the world seems more volumetric.
Copy it to the BIN folder of the game and run one of the patchers corresponding to your game version. Shadow of Chernobyl v1.0003-1.0006, build 3120 and Clear Sky v1.5.04-1.5.07 are supported. Run the patcher again to restore original FOV.
I do not recommend to create a server/clients in Shadow of Chernobyl by the Internet, using changed xrgame.dll. It will not be possible to connect. Or it will be necessary to agree in advance that on all computers in a network would be the same xrgame.dll. But in Clear Sky it's possible to connect by internet with the machines which have not this patch.
Do not forget that either Shadow of Chernobyl or Clear Sky supports external camera modes by F1-F3. Plus and minus buttons on the right of keyboard are used to zoom. Also you may use F4 in mp to switch into free-fly mode, when you are offline. To enable it you should use the console and enter four commands:
bind cam_1 kF1
bind cam_2 kF2
bind cam_3 kF3
bind cam_4 kF4
