I think the difficulty in that lies in the different dimensions of all cockpits, meaning you'd have to model it for each aircraft individually.

I'd much rather see some sort of 'flashlight x-ray' where your cursor just makes the pilot body transparent wherever you're pointing.

Wow, that's cool. Never seen that before. Can't wait to get my hands on what they have ready for us in F-18 EA !! Exciting.

+1

That would help a lot, especially in VR.

Will the water on the canopy produce the optical illusion related to refraction?
-Rain on the windscreen can create an illusion of being at a higher altitude due to the horizon appearing lower than it is
-This can result in flying a lower approach than is desired


===
Don't move this question to the Reality/Chit-Chat forum: it will hurt my feelings again.

Why does this question belong in the F/A-18C thread? Because it's the only place where water-on-the-canopy feature is currently discussed.

Regarding the FM, is there noticeable inertia / drift when turning / rolling the aircraft or the plane fly's more '' on rails''?

On this video, it seems that the plane / flight path marker drifts to the (right) side while rolling out (3:09 - 3:12)

Hey I got a question.



Do you see how when he turns his head right to check his six, the view snaps to the side of the seat, simulating how you would really turn around to look.

Is this a new feature ? I really like it ! Instead of just rotating the view around an axis as it is now

Default Release Question

I know that Once the F/A-18C releases it releases to open beta and once it is ok with no major problems how long does it take to get to the stable version on 2.5

Yes.






Pretty much the only thing anyone can tell you. It all depends. Might be a week, might be a month.
