    I may have forgetten to mention, but I CAN'T implement both ways. I've planned out that if I were to go out with a first person perspective, it'd be a true first person perspective, where there would be no head mesh and the character would be a little more detailed and the level textures would be better. Now, if I were to go with a third person perspective, I would obviously have a head mesh, but as well, I've noticed the texture maps won't have to be also big..

    I'm kinda leaning towards a first person camera, I don't think I've seenany games at all use it for an rpg

    The first person camera I was implying would be the one seen in games like Mirror's Edge. I am fully aware of other RPGs using first person camera as Fallout, Skyrim, Oblivon, Morrowind etc.

    There is actually little difference in the camera perspective, its to do with the fact you can see yourself which isnt required for first person. Infact alot of games negate the fact in first person one can narrate to oneself.

    I have really noticed that, I was playing Skyrim for awhile and I noticed I had no feet, just floating arms. I wonder...
    But a TFP camera seems to be the best anyway!
