While playing Far Cry 3, I tried to use my camera inside the boat (mission "Get aboard the ship" or similar title). When I pressed Z on the following place, instead of normal blue coloured grid, I was surprised to see a yellow one. Not only this, the click sound was a little different as well.

I was not able to grab a screenshot at that moment, but I did encounter a similar behaviour later on:

Weird things happened on moving the mouse just a little to left:

Does this have any significance? Anyone here knows about it?

  • Might be related to Does it mean anything when the camera screen turns orange to take a pic?. It usually behaves that way on side-missions where you have to take photos of things to indicate you are pointing at the correct object. Maybe there is a side-mission photography target there which is invisible because the mission isn't active?

  • But the boat sank from the first screenshot.

  • maybe they had planned to have a quest like that on the boat, they removed it before release for some reason, but forgot to remove all the photo triggers?
