[NO BUG] Sitting too low

Yes, the default head position is too low, this can't be realistic as the pilot wouldn't even be able to see through the sight. Half the reticle is obscured by the nose so leading a target with the ring is impossible. All the other WWII planes have a clear view of the whole ring.

....another option... Why cant the developers create it so that the settings are LEFT ALONE after we get out of our aircraft ???? I have to raise my seat, move it forward a bit, adjust my rudder trim, open all the button covers, etc., etc., etc. Can't there be a simple way to just leave ALL settings the way they were in the previous flight???

You can save the position. I don't recall the key-combo, but look in control settings in the 'view' group IIRC.

Yes, once you save your position in the cockpit for that aircraft, it remains the same, even after quitting DCS and starting again.

 

Check the group 'View Cockpit' in your controls. Moving the camera position --where your head is-- all use <RCtrl><RShift><some number-pad-key> to change the position, and <RAlt><NUM0> to save the position.

 

You can also use <RCtrl><RShift><some number-pad-key> to temporarily change the position, and then press <NUM5> to return to you saved position.

 

Easy-Peasy ;)

 

 

EDIT: the switch and dial settings have default settings for Air-, Hot-, and Cold-start. It would make little sense for them to carry over from one mission to the next.

my camera cockpit setting are not staying saved? I save them but when I restart a missions I'm back to sitting low in the cockpit, P51. The spitfire is good.

I'm in VR.

Set your desired position and press ralt + num0

This isn’t working. The cockpit view always returns to the screwed up low head position when I restart a mission

 

This is INFURIATING! Why can’t ED just make the default head position correct instead of making every player jump through all these stupid commands! :mad:

 

Yes this IS a BUG! Please fix it! Why are we simulating a pilot too short to see over the nose of their own plane!

ED please reopen this as a bug report. No other module afaik has the pilots head position wrong like this. Players shouldn’t be forced to deal with the bewildering number of key commands every time they use this plane!

It's very simple to bind camera up/down to a two position switch and simply orient on entering the cockpit. With Track IR the view point is almost constantly changing, so simply F 12 for it and thumb your bound switch up or down to get the reticle right. It then stays there all flight until you raise it again for landing view.

If I will exclude the possibility of displacement of the head.

Why is gunsight extremely down?

I just bind the cockpit camera up/down/forward/back to Lever+mic switch on my HOTAS.

The displacement of the position of the head is here a few threads, maybe he just wanted to know why is the elevation angle of the gun in the nose instead of above it?
