Today’s tip: Cameraman mode – how to take good pictures of your house
Posted July 31, 2009on:
Taking pictures of your home in The Sims 3 can be a real pain – especially those really small rooms, like a bathroom or a small working area. Yet you keep seeing these perfect wide angled screenshots at every Sims-forum and no matter how much you try to place that damn camera you can’t get the same result.
Search no more – here’s the secret to taking good pictures of your home (right after the jump).
No, not the soft drink Homer, the key on your keyboard. It’s placed just above Caps Lock, or left of the Q key, or three steps up from the fn key if you’re on a MacBook Pro, or one step down and five steps left of the number 6 key.
Did you find it? Good, let’s move on then, shall we?
When you play The Sims 3 (you have to be in “play mode”, “building mode” doesn’t work) just press the TAB key (you know where it is!) to enter “Cameraman mode”. Now you can adjust the camera just right to get the perfect shot. Use the arrow keys to move around, move the mouse to chose the angle, Z and X zooms in and out, and C takes the picture.
There you go, easy as cherry pie!
