Hi all,Is it possible someone could make wing views for the PMDG 747-400 (FS2004 version). If possible could they possibly be viewed in COCKPIT view and NOT virtual cockpit.ThanksChris

Since the crew cannot see the wings from the cockpit they are not provided by PMDG.

PMDG refused to do this with FS9 but apparently have relented with the 747 FSX verson as a result of posts like yours. Don't know why it was so hard as the LDS 767 have had these third party add ons for a while and they work wonderfully well.Gerry

<>This was simply a compromise between features and performance. If we added the thousands of polygons that make up 2 wings, the extra couple of megabytes for high resolution textures, 4 engines, 14 control surfaces and 86 moving parts, there would those who would be screaming at us for including it and hurting performance. How could we commit such a travesty? After all "I fly from inside the airplane". (You've all heard it before)Then there would be another group screaming at us to create a hide feature for these highly demanded views.Then there would be another group screaming at us, wondering why we didn

would it be possible to make a one off file with some wing-views in it and just let people download the file freely? Also you wouldn't need to make them too detailed.And why do PMDG refuse to make wing views for the 747-400 but made some for the 737-600/700, 737-800/900 and Beachcraft B1900c/dAnd i'm pretty sure that if it is possible on FSX then it is possible on FS2004. The frame-rates and performance specifications arent that much better than from FS2004.Thanks for your help.

Could you not possibly save 6 wing views, of the PMDG 747-400, to a file and then send me them?If so could there be 3 on each wing:1 looking out onto the leading edge and over the engines (left and right wing-sort of like the second pic u have attached, but slightly lower)-Like the one on the PMDG home page that says "Enjoy the View" on it.1 looking over the main part of the wing (middle of wing-left and right wings again)and 1 looking just behind the trailing edge of the wings (left and right wings again)I would be greatful if you could.Many Thanks Chris

Chris,the freeware recorder module, file name: recorder_1-3.zip here at Avsim library by Matthias Neusinger will do the job. You can have as many wing views as you wish for. Wing views, gear views,... from any angle, any position, actually. Well worth the money (freeware). :)EDIT: these wing views can be accessed from SPOT view, not COCKPIT or VC. Regards,Jure

Hi,I cannot get the recorder to work properly (getting the camera in the correct spot). Do you have the PMDG 747-400?If so could you not possibly save 6 wing views, of the PMDG 747-400, to a file and then send me them?If so could there be 3 on each wing:1 looking out onto the leading edge and over the engines (left and right wing-sort of like the second pic u have attached, but slightly lower)-Like the one on the PMDG home page that says "Enjoy the View" on it.1 looking over the main part of the wing (middle of wing-left and right wings again)and 1 looking just behind the trailing edge of the wings (left and right wings again)I would be greatful if you could.Many Thanks Chris

I know,I just really want wing views for the PMDG 747. I was a little disappointed that there wasnt any included. I was even more disappointed when I found that nobody had made any and put them on AVSIM.

I just bought mine a couple of hours ago and you can have any view you want. Landing gears, wing views. If you fly the A380 you can simulate the camera views such as the cam positioned on the tail fin and the cam positioned below the belly of the jet. Its friggin sweet.

See all the posts above your last. You've been given several alternatives. All of them require actions on your part, but they are there. I didn't know how to paint... Then nobody wanted to do a livery for me, so I started learning. It's not a bad thing to be self-reliant in a hobby like this one. :7Daniel P.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/supporter.jpgMember of SJU Photography.

Chris,directly from Matthias Neusinger's recorder instructions (Spot views which you need are in bold):Advanced views--------------The module includes advanced features for the tower,spot plane and virtual cockpit (VC) views, which give you more freedom for viewing your recorded flights.Creating new advanced views---------------------------To use the advanced view features, you first have to create a new advanced tower/spot/VC view. To do this select Advanced tower/spot/VC views>New tower/spot/VC view from the Recorder menu, or change to the respective view mode and press the key combination assigned to New advanced view in the keyboard controls dialog (default: Ctrl+V). This will create and select a copy of the currently active tower/spot/VC view.Deleting advanced views-----------------------To delete the currently active advanced view select Advanced tower/spot/VC views>Delete tower/spot/VC view from the Recorder menu, or change to the respective view and press the key combination assigned to Delete advanced view in the keyboard controls dialog (default: Shift+Ctrl+V).Switching between advanced views--------------------------------To select a different advanced tower/spot/VC view, select the view from the list in the Advanced tower/spot/VC views submenu. The first entry in the list is always
