I really like the 25x and 16x zoom options in sniper mode, but my scroll system has a hard time zooming anywhere other than the minimum and maximum values. I installed QuickyBaby's modpack but don't see an option in camera.xc to limit the sniper view from 8x to 25x (which would solve my problem as I only use one of those two. (It probably doesnt help that the only Russian I speak is Da and Nyet.)

Is there a way to do this with XVM? Is there another mod that lets me use the Caps Lock key to enable and disable the 16x and 25x view buttons without wasting all kinds of time in the settings menu? I'm pretty sure that would be legal since it only references vanilla options (searching the forums it seemed like some other zoom mods were illegal). Alternatively, I'd be happy to use the up/down arrow keys to zoom in and out one level at a time.

Go to settings and click the first tab on the left then it should be on the right side of the menu

I found a solution:

camera.xc is not enabled by default, on line 9 do so by changing false to true. (This was why when I tried it before it didnt work :facepalm:)

Then the options on line 59 will take effect. Change it to "zooms":[8, 16, 25] to limit the sniper zoom range.

On line 62 change null to 8 if you want (like I do) to always start with a zoom of 8.

 

 

I'd still appreciate being able to zoom in and out with a key press, or use it to swap between zoom ranges, but this is now much more workable.

 

Onward to Victory!

(I'm aware of the option's placement in settings, but I can't go back and forth to change it during a battle.)
