I reached out to Goxmeor and he graciously agreed to let me revive this mod for 1.16 and beyond. Thanks Gox!

Have you ever changed your Field of View graphics setting in your client to zoom in? Yup, that's pretty much all this mod does: it gives you a HotKey to temporarily drop your Field of View to the legal minimum of 20 and halves your mouse sensitivity.

Hold down the HotKey (default Z) to zoom. Release to zoom back out. 

Gox made a video explaining it all.  Check it out below!

Jake3D I have only ever seen the vignette while zoomed, so I'm not sure what you are talking about.  Maybe there's an incompatibility with your graphics card.  You could try this instead.

💬 Jake3D, Nov 24th at 8:16 AM

is there any way to fix the horrible vignette effect added by this mod?

i can understant the vignette wile zoomed, but Why is it there when not zooming? Can this be fixed?

This was by far the most useful mod I've ever had! I love this one. No issues at all, compatibility with other mods. Great! Now I can watch my bread in the oven closely.. (◠△◠✿) Thank you!

That was it. Reinstall the game.

I don't use CC either, but it was the first one I could think of that added a hot key and a Controls entry..

💬 SpearAndFang, Sep 19th at 2:55 PM

hmm maybe a fresh install of the full game will help.  This mod is still working perfectly for me and has through all of the 1.17.x releases including the latest.  I also use StepUp but not Campaign Cartographer.

💬 HoosierDaddy, Sep 19th at 1:24 PM

Still working?

17.3, (not clean, through updates), Essentials, Creative, Survival, Zoom.. Not included under actions "Z" does not zoom. Add StepUp to the mix, it steps up. Add Campaign Cartographer, F7 option appears in Interface.

Maybe time to bite the bullet and download the game fresh?

💬 SpearAndFang, Jul 15th at 2:26 PM

FYI: I tested this mod with v1.17.0-pre.4 and v1.17.0-pre.5 - still working.

Thanks !! That is some serious reactivity there, my keyboard is azerty so i just had to swap into qwerty but no need for that now thanks to you. Great work

💬 SpearAndFang, Jul 4th at 11:58 PM

oops, I didn't realize that was broken.  I've uploaded a new version that should sort that out.  Please use it instead, and then from in game:
ESC - Settings - Controls - Actions - Zoom In.  The video also shows how to change that as well.   Thanks!

💬 Tokimimo, Jul 4th at 8:23 PM

great mod, but how do i change the key ? maybe add a line in the config but what do I need to type in ? If someone can help me out that would be great 


💬 SpearAndFang, Jun 27th at 4:00 AM

I briefly tested this mod with v1.17.0-pre.1 and it seemed to work aok.  

💬 SpearAndFang, Feb 6th at 11:50 PM

With an identical setup - new world, VS 1.16.3, carraycapacity 0.6.4, and bricklayers 0.8.2 - I immediately had the exact same issue.  And that was without this mod or any other mods installed. 

I saved and exited the world and went back in and it magically started working. Then I enabled this mod and tried several times/ways to recreate the issue but could not.  Based on what happened to me initially, I'd have to say that the issue is specific to the vanilla game, carrycapacity, and bricklayers.

💬 Aledark, Feb 6th at 10:11 PM

Small bug when you have that mod enabled, you cannot lift fireclay vessels with carrycapacity 0.6.4 and bricklayers 0.8.2 with version 1.16.3. We tryed new world with an without the mod and somehow it messes up controls for that. Standard vessel works fine or chest but it doesnt work for fire clay vessel for example.

💬 SpearAndFang, Jan 17th at 8:31 AM

I've only ever used it in single player. I've seen it used by players on servers, so based on what you said, I believe the correct answer is yes, client only.

💬 Buggi, Jan 17th at 3:55 AM

Is this a client only mod? Because servers throw an exception when trying to load the mod.

💬 Smile, Jan 1st at 9:08 PM

Absolutely amazing, A toggle for the vignetting would be great but otherwise love it!

💬 SpearAndFang, Dec 30th 2021 at 9:47 PM

My pleasure.  It makes for a great modding tool as well, for inspecting new blocks/items closely or for observing things from a distance.  I love this mod.

💬 KineticKnight, Dec 30th 2021 at 9:36 PM

Awesome!!! Glad to see this updated and widely available again! \o/

💬 OpPointBaker, Dec 30th 2021 at 3:14 PM

Thank you so much for the much needed update!

It appears to be working just fine on 1.16.0-rc.3.
