Default Animated mirror flip

Hi,

Owned RAZBAM M2k and Harrier for some time. Except updating avionic and weapon simulation, what I also really want (I believe many other people would also want) is animated mirror flip in this two aircrafts.

ED airplanes such as F/A-18C, Su-27, F15C, Mig-29 all have animated mirror flip to turn off mirror. In M2D and AV8B, turning off mirror will keep a snapshot(static picture) on it, which looks not very realistic.

Since mirrors are not used in most situation, and using mirrors also significantly kill FPS, it will be quite sweet to have mirrors flipped 90 degree toward canopy glass to keep a realistic-looking cockpit.

Just a small suggestion to RAZBAM team.

Thank you for your awesome work on M2K, AV8B and coming MIG19, F15E.

Regards

I've requested the same thing for the Viggen, too.

I don't know if it would be technically realistic (flipping the mirrors might not be an option on the real-life Harrier) but it would be a very welcome option.

It's not. Those types of mirrors can be adjusted to view a different area, but not flipped completely up. They are mounted on a ball and joint type of holder.

But it'd still be nice

Totally don't care. I'm very happy with the 3D modeling aspect of Razbams work, I'm alot less impressed in the functionality/coding part of their planes.

I think the idea is to have an option to fly without mirrors that doesn't leave the player looking at ugly black voids.

My sentiments exactly.Really excellent 3D modeling on their part,coding not so much.

I hope things will change starting with MIG 19 onward.

I would like it in the harrier because I don’t think the renders look that good in the mirror, would prefer to just flip them up and it saves a few FPS as well. The mirage mirror I think looks great though.
