VC Question

Recommended Posts

Norm, I'm not sure if this was answered and some how I completely overlooked it over if it was said, but is there a way to use a model with no VC?-Chase

Chase,We went with the all in one approach. Including the NO VC along with the RR and P&W split was making things just way too complex. Looking at the FSX demo it seems that VCs are becoming (much to my dismay) the norm.

Norm, Thanks for the reply. Is there any chance that we can find a way to get rid of it? I know that just sounds terrible, and the aircraft is great, but hte one thing I wasn't expecting was no option to not have a VC. I find that even if I'm not using the VC, I drag. Though, without it I'm fine. Thanks!-Chase

Whilst its not something we advocate there is a method using a hex editor. Somebody recently posted about it again on the airbus forum. You will understand it is not something we can support.

Norm, I fully understand that it is not supported. I just didn't know that no VC wasn't an option when I bought the aircraft. VCs just don't work that great for me and drag me so low on the frames. -Chase

Norm, Sorry, on another subject, I noticed that when I installed the a/c, I didn't have the option of picking which liveries I wanted. They seem to all be installed. Went back to the setup and there is no options to chose which liveries.-Chase

To bad VC is becoming the norm. I even have Track IR3 and still dont like VC. The clarity of 2D is soo much better. I hope 2D panels are always supported. I will never understand why people insist on VC.

Norm, I've been looking around on the site, but was it ever mentioned any where that the VC was the only option for the 757? (Just making sure I didn't miss it when I purchased it)-Chase

If there is a quick way to get rid of the VC please let me know. As soon as you press "S" when switching views and it passes the VC view, man does it pause and drag down the system. Thanks!Jack

Guys, I have a hex editor which I use to delete the VC's on planes.Email me at jellwood@avsim.com and I will give you instructions, plus a link to the editor I use. It's a quick process, but if done wrong can have bad effects.

Thanks!>JackYou can cycle backwards - check the settings in MSFS but hink it's shift-S or Ctrl-S.I have them mapped to my yoke so can go from External to cabin and back.Must say though that Track IR with 6DOF makes fully featured VC's such as the PSS and PMDG ones a pleasure to fly.I find myself spending more and more time in the VC and often just use 2D for FMC work

whats the point of getting rid of the VC? you are going to see zero framerate effect, when you are in the 2d panel view, there is no VC to draw. its basically pointless
