Resolving Zoom Issue in Palia

If you're encountering a zoom issue in Palia, where your camera is stuck too close to your character, there's a quick workaround to help fix it. Follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings: While in the game, open your settings menu. You can typically access this by pressing the "Escape" key or using a designated settings button in the user interface.

  2. Adjust Field of View (FOV): Inside the settings menu, go to Graphics Settings tab then Advance Tab there is a option to adjust your Field of View (FOV). Set it to a value of 90.

  3. Zone Transition: After setting your FOV to 90, immediately transition to another zone within the game. You can do this by using zone portals of Kilima, Bahari Bay or your House, or return to house in-game function to change your location.

  4. Check Zoom: After transitioning to the new zone, check if your zoom issue is resolved. Your camera should now be at a comfortable distance from your character.

⚠️ This workaround adjusts your Field of View temporarily and then, by changing zones, should reset your camera position to a more natural view. If the issue persists, consider reaching out to Palia support for further assistance. Remember, this is a workaround and not a permanent fix, so the issue may reoccur in some situations.
