Starfield lets you create your character in great detail, but you don't get to see their face often, as conversations focus on the counterpart. A new mod changes to great effect.
The Player Dialogue Camera mod by jedijosh920 does exactly what it says on the tin. It moves the camera to look at your player character when it's your turn to talk as you may be used to in other games like Baldur's Gate 3 and many more.
You can download it on Nexus Mods, and it even comes with the ability to change the player character's expression at the press of a button.
How to Install the Player Dialogue Camera Mod in Starfield
Installation of this mod works a little differently compared to many other mods, as it uses Jedi's Starfield Script Hook. Here's what you need to do.
- Install Jedi's Starfield Script Hook by unzipping all its files in your main game folder (for instance C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Starfield). Make sure you have the "scripts" folder.
- Install the Player Dialogue Camera Mod by unzipping all its files in the scripts folder you just added to the game's folder.
- Edit the PlayerDialogueSettings.ini file and change iSwitchMode=0 to SwitchMode=1 if you want the camera to switch to your character automatically like in Baldur's Gate 3. If you prefer to retain control, leave it as "0" and press "V" to change the camera angle.
Of course, the mod works only on PC for the moment. We'll have to see if that changes when Bethesda adds official modding support next year.
Below you can see the mod in action in a video provided by the creator.
Starfield has already already achieved over 10 million players since its release and is now available for Xbox Series X|S and PC. It just received a welcome update allowing players to change the field of view angle, but the developers have a long list of features they want to implement.
