Default Changing the FOV for the 109?

My usual way of updating the file in my user folder doesn't seem to be the way, aircraft not in the file. Searching the forums, I found something about modifying the view.lua in COREMods, but it appears to have no effect (did find some 109 related configs there though).

Any help is appreciated!

Hi TheThumper,

FOV is set in the Views.lua file in ..\DCS\Mods\aircraft\Bf-109K-4\

edit the line

..
CameraViewAngleLimits = {20.000000,140.000000}
..

1st value is min FOV, 2nd is max FOV

Thanks for the help! I had actually edited that file, but for some reason it didn't save using Notepad++. With your information, I tried again and opened Notepad++ as Admin and then the save "stuck" and FOV is all better.... thanks again!

Thumper,

what did you change your FOV to; So I have a basis to start from

And do we just delete the min and max value and set a single value to actually change it?

leave min to 20, max=105 is good start.

the line would look like this
..
CameraViewAngleLimits = {20.000000,105.000000}
..

this it doesn't work with TrackIR, when you make a TrackIR centering F12 it come back as before ... i mean you got your nose on the collimator.
I try to change view.lua file, snapViews ...doing it in RALT 0, ctrl 0 ... nothing

make a copy of server.lua that is in:
C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Config\View


Put it in:
C:\Users\xxxxxx\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Config\View
Make that View folder in there if it doesnt exist!


Copy the view stuff below from:
C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\aircraft\Bf-109K-4\Views.lua



ViewSettings = {
Cockpit = {
[1] = {-- player slot 1
CameraViewAngleLimits = {20.000000,140.000000}, --(chage your preferred fov here)
CockpitLocalPoint = {-1.03, 0.72, 0.0},
CameraAngleRestriction = {false,90.000000,0.500000},
CameraAngleLimits = {200,-90.000000,90.000000},
EyePoint = {0.05000,0.100000,0.000000},
ShoulderSize = 0.25,
Allow360rotation = false,
limits_6DOF = {x = {-0.06, 0.35}, y = {-0.32, 0.08}, z = {-0.17, 0.17}, roll = 90.0},
},
}, -- Cockpit
Chase = {
LocalPoint = {0.0, -0.191, -1.146},
AnglesDefault = {0.0, 0.0},
}, -- Chase
Arcade = {
LocalPoint = {-21.500000,5.618000,0.000000},
AnglesDefault = {0.000000,-8.000000},
}, -- Arcade
}


Edit: make it exactly like in the file. here in forum it deletes empty spaces from beginning of these lines!!!!!!!!!!!




And paste that view stuff above to the server.lua you put in the:
C:\Users\xxxxxx\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Config\View


No problem with IC


Do the same for all your planes, and no update will ever overwrite it, it's allways there and your fov settings are allways like you want them to be.


Happy year 2019
