Does anyone know how to script so i can add a camera to an implement (for example; Wheel loader fork) and when attached to a wheel loader, having the option to switch to that camera?

<toolCamera node="toolCamera" rotatable="false" useWorldXZRotation="false" useMirror="false" isInside="false" positionSmoothingParameter="0" />

Tried to follow this and add a craneCamera to FS22 default Kesla as it and the Heizomat trailed chipper are missing it? Used the Ponsse Bison as example and exported the crane camera nodes from it, did id3 mappings and added xml movinpart too. The mod loads, can be bought ingame, but craneCamera does not work and get this error in log:

Of course you must have an existing camera in the i3d.

Kari Halonen (Jurkkis) 31.12.2021 13:03
Yes I exported the group of 3 nodes from the Bison containing the camera and imported them under the main component of Kesla.

<TransformGroup name="craneCameraRotRefFrame" translation="2.8873e-07 3.61396 3.02235" rotation="0 180 0" nodeId="783">
<TransformGroup name="craneCameraRot" translation="-2.22045e-18 -5.68434e-16 2.84217e-16" nodeId="784">
<Camera name="craneCamera" translation="2.22045e-18 0 0" rotation="0 180 0" nodeId="785" fov="55" nearClip="0.1" farClip="5000" orthographicHeight="1"/>

Did you read the log carefully? Obviously not, since the error message "Must be a camera type!" indicates invalid type resp. wrong camera node.

Kari Halonen (Jurkkis) 31.12.2021 19:42
I've tried to check the nodes best to my knowledge. "craneCamera" i3d mapping does match to my craneCamera node index in GE. Maybe I try to create the camera manually, rather than importing.

Anyone know a mod that has succeeded in adding the tool camera I could use as an example? I could not find one, and none of the ingame default implements have one. Enterable only, as the Andersson trailer.

Edit: I got information elsewhere that toolCamera won't work atm. Support will be added in future.

Thanks Kari for the update, guess i have to make the logging trailers enterable for now then.
