I would like to shift the camera position so that the player is not centered on the map. Is there a way to do this?
Thus far I have tried Galvs Camera Plugin but there does seem to be a option of shift the focused player camera.

Any ideas how to achieve ?

depends on how you want the screen to look.
what should it be centered on or where should the player be?

I suggest you give a mockup picture of what you want, then we can tell you how to achieve that.

HI Andar, Please see attached images.
I want the camera to stay focused on the player but offset so you can see more map above the player as they move around.

that has the disadvantage of seeing less of the map below, not every player will like that.

needs a custom plugin that changes the calculation of what part of the map is displayed, but should be easy to do.

When you say "easy" is there a plugin that could assist in this that you would recommend? I do not code very well. edited : ( I now assume you would have already told me if you knew of a plugin ) :)

not to my knowledge.
but with easy I mean that someone with the knowledge should be able to write one quickly, and that means you have good chances of success if you request one such plugin.

unintentionally made a track that sounds straight out of Yume Nikki
Revisiting one of my older projects in a long time to work some more on the mechanics. I've been working on- and off-again for about a year now on recreating the Force and Mystic systems from Wild ARMs. And I think I've finally made some good breakthroughs on that!

Still, it is not perfect and I may post my thoughts at a later time to see if there are any other suggestions or alternatives I've missed.
actor name string, why you gotta be case sensitive like that?

My entire world, full of monsters and treasures, will likely be done by the end of the year. After that it's all NPCs and side quests... then done. I'm never making an open world game again xD
