I remember reading about a mode where you can disable the copilots instruments in virtual cockpit mode and this really helps the frame rates.Michael Pare.

Actually it's not about just the frame rates, I just don't like the virtual cockpits.IMO, unless you have a track-ir system, a VC is not practical when it comes to operating/flying the aircraft from the VC.So it's not just about wasting precious memory and cpu resources for it, but having a VC model also prevents me to using the 2D side views, which I enjoy with the PMDG 744 and all other aircraft I have.So I hope the PMDG would go the extra mile and add an option for disabling the VC, just as they did with the 747..Bozhan.

>Guys please include a no-VC model or a "hide VC" option with>the package.OK, thanks for the info, Bozhan.Now I know why my question about that has not been answered.It is just NOT implemented. I wonder why...I also fly 2D panels only in heavy metal jets (FS9).I use side views and wing views (if possible).In PMDG 737NG both were available.In PMDG 747-400 only the side views (being able to easily uncheck the VC).In PMDG MD-11 none anymore?I do have to ask others since I don't use FSX and would like to know what features to expect when the time comes to pay for the FS9 version.Have a nice Saturday, everybody!Best regards,Rafal

>Guys please include a no-VC model or a "hide VC" option with>the package.>I second that request, I never use the VC in any of my aircraft, it's just not practical, the 2D panel is my cockpit :)2D side views should be there too, they come in handy on circling approaches not to mention the eye-candy bit.Considering all PMDG products I am pretty optimistic that there will be the "2D Only" option.

When you can so easily have triple views/monitors and a 150
