# 1 Freecam is not working
06-21-2013, 04:48 PM
As a builder, the /freecam 1 and /freecam 0 commands were the most useful addition to the Foundry in the past year. Now, it is no longer working. It says "Unknown Command: "freecam."

Since this feature was a huge improvement that worked perfectly, I suspect that maybe it is no longer working due to a bug, a change in the command phrase, or some other reason.

Can we please get some clarification on why it's not working? Has the command changed?

That feature saved me hours of work on each mission. It was an incredibly useful thing to have.

PS. Here is how freecam worked.

I agree. The tool was very useful for getting in those places that a player couldn't, and to get an aerial view of large maps, etc.

I suppose freecam is added to the list of things Cryptic has decided to remove from the Foundry. First costume import, now freecam, and also some people's maps too.

No one told me anything about an intentional change with this, so I'll look into it.

I just did some quick digging and found that this command has been changed to /ugc_freecam

It should work identically, just specifically for Foundry mode editing, it seems.

Cheers!
