I don’t know about you but staring into people’s nostrils during a conversation kind of ruins the mood for me. However, Bethesda apparently does not feel the same after including some jarring camera work in Starfield. Luckily, one modder is on hand to make dialogue a bit less awkward.
Starfield has had something of a rocky road since it was first released back in September. As Bethesda’s latest RPG, it had a lot of expectations on its shoulders which many believe it didn’t quite meet. As a result, the title recently fell to a “mixed” rating on Steam with some criticising its repetitive gameplay, empty world and a “half-baked” bounty system.

It is perhaps not surprising then that it was recently snubbed at The Game Awards nominations. However, Bethesda is not ready to give up on Starfield and neither is its modding community.
The latest mod to make its way onto the game is titled ‘Disable Dialogue Camera’ and as you can probably expect, it allows a third-person camera to be used during dialogue. This means the camera will no longer drastically zoom into NPCs faces when you enter into a conversation with them so jumpscares will be kept to a minimum.
As well as forcing third person, you can also switch back to first person as well as controlling the camera’s movements as a whole. This will give you a much more personalised experience which is useful as Starfield will have you talking to a whole plethora of NPCs. Luckily, this mod will stop you talking to their nostrils.
Our very own Kate Harrold called Starfield “an interstellar playground exceeding all expectations” in her review and praised its satisfying narrative, moral challenges and the brutal yet satisfying combat.
“The journey you embark on will dazzle you, and I have no doubt that players will be gripped for months, perhaps even years to come,” she wrote. “Here is a playground where you can be whoever you want to be. I simply cannot stop thinking about Starfield and the wondrous secrets it still holds. Bethesda, I have one word: bravo.”
