I would really like to have some settings that i can adjust for the G force effects. Right now it is possible to adjust the head rolling by editing a .lua file, but i couldn't find any settings for the head translations (which seem to be a bit wild).

G-forces comes with penalty to not being able look around, see straight or aim properly.

The problem is that your viewpoint moves around so much under G force effects that the gunsight reticle goes outside the glass plate and becomes invisible, so you can't aim at your opponent.
And this happens all the time, not just during violent maneuvers so i think it's not realistic.
I like the G force effect, but i think it's a bit overdone.

Either I am confused or you are as there is no G force modeled in the sight??The cross hair disappears out of the sight glass from your TrackIR head movements.


The Gforce settings in settings only controls blackouts also and does nothing to the behavior of cross hair in the sight.

The blackouts are something different. There is an option somewhere in the settings panel, where you can enable the G-force head movements. This is like adding some inertia to your head, instead of having a fixed viewpoint.
