HoopleDoople Posted July 26, 2014 Share Posted July 26, 2014 As a longtime Warframe player who's been on break from the game for a few months, I decided to come back see what's new with Warframe. There's a lot of interesting and fun additions, but I was extremely displeased with the new ship that replaces the solar system main screen. It looks great and all... but it gives me headaches. Seriously, if I walk around for more than a few seconds I feel downright ill. The problem is how close the camera is and how rapidly everything moves as you turn. The last game I encountered this on was the first Borderlands, which made the mistake of using the same camera distance for console (where players tend to set far from the screen) and PC (where players are only a few feet away). For that game I used a mod to move the camera back and increase the field of view and was able to play just fine. The problem with the ship is pretty obvious - it's so small that the camera has been moved visibly closer to the warframe. I did notice that using the esc menu is an alternate way to access things, but it's if anything worse. When you bring up the esc menu the game rapidly zooms and rotates to move the warframe out of the way. My current strategy to make the game something approaching playable is to close my eyes while opening the esc menu and then work from there. It's not really an ideal solution and I'm not planning to play a game where I have to actively avoid making myself feel sick. I don't know if anyone else experiences this or the Warframe developers plan to address it, but here are three options to fix the problem: 1) Redesign the transition to the esc menu to be less jarring. Simplest would probably be to make the warframe invisible while the menu is active and remove any camera spin/movement. 2) Have an option to use an alternate interface instead of the ship. This could simply be the old solar system screen. 3) Make the ship a minimum of twice the size so that the camera can be at the same spot as in missions.
