Is there a way to have the yoke always lower...

Recommended Posts

Title says it all, what is the VC mod that will ensure you see the yoke lowered as default and higher when clicked ? Mark.

I'd like that too. I have to click it to lower it in 100% of my flights. I wouldn't mind even having the option not to display it, since I already have my hands on my CH yoke, I really have no need to see another one in front of me.

How yoke can obstruct your view when its positioned to allow pilots to see displays behind. I do not see problem. :( However, erasing yoke from cockpit is not realistic, so if you want yokeless cockpit, there are 2d panels :( Lj. Prodanovic

Also, I'd like an option to not display the Captains seat, as it gets in my views too often. Besides, in real life, I wouldn't see it, because I'd be sitting in it.

And here we go with the unhelpful posts...and before coffee. Gah. If you're unable to offer any help, please move along.

I can see what you mean, but it's not hard to just click it down when you start.

Guys, I don't think you are all understanding my question. I load up the NGX and then I click on the top of the yoke to lower it. I would like to get in and have the yoke in the lower position all the time so I don't have to click it, I don't want to get rid of it at all. mark.

.... is clicking on it once every flight really that strenuous of an activity?

+ 1. We woke up the "that's not real" crowd. Hey guys, I have news for you: Flying an NG alone in the cockpit is NOT REALISTIC EITHER!

No one said it's not real, it's just not hard to click the yoke before you fly...

Dialing the mins down from the defaulted 9000 isn't strenuous either, it's just defaulted to an impractical number, so it's being fixed. If the default position of the yoke would be better suited down instead of up, why not change it?

With no disrespect to the OP, I didn't think having to do one mouse click was that big of a deal myself either.Sean Campbell

Actually, yes, they did say it.

True, but maybe he never meant it like that, however, the NGX is dubbed one of the most realistic birds out there, so why it would be yokeless is beyond me. I see where the OP is coming from, but for the team to redesign it would be ridiculous, a problem that can be solved with a click.

It's not a problem. It's a convenience item, like setting the default mins down from 9000. If it's a click I have to make each and every time I fly, why can't I default it to that setting? Why all the ire and teeth gnashing? There are so many things that are not real about flight sim, it always catches me off guard when people focus on little things like that when they totally ignore the BIG unrealisms of flight sim. If you want to go the not real route, it doesn't feel real for me to have my hands on the ch yoke and still see one floating in front of me on screen, BUT, back to the original OP, I'd be happy to be able to default the yoke in the down position, for the same reasons that I'd like the default mins to be lower than 9000.

I'm sorry you feel that way, but no one is ire and teeth gashing, the 'Mins at 9000' ' is a worth while problem. To me, it's not so much of a realism problem (This thread) but a preference, my underlying fix to this problem, is to simply lower it before you fly.

No its not a big deal but if it can be done, I would prefer my VC set up that way. I have seen other posts asking how you can have the NG default to Cold and Dark....that is 2 or 3 mouse clicks I think. Mark.

No one (except developers) can offer you help about this, we can do nothing to erase yoke for you (even if someone actually want). Lj. Prodanovic

Wouldn't that apply to the mins as well? Who judges it worthwile and this not? Sounds like a matter of personal opinion.

I don't recall asking anyone to erase it for me. I don't recall asking anyone to do anything for me. But thanks!

Your a case.Underlying idea : Your still going to fly the plane, yoke up or down, it's something your going to have to live with.

The word help was used. I did not ask for any. Are there any informed opinions on whether the option can be made to default to the desired position?

You guys should be flying an Airbus !! LMAO.gif
Why is that? I hate planes that don't require trained pilots!

Yea, we can argue here forever what is better for yoke default position, but at the end, only devs can actually do it. So our opinions are not helpful at all. Lj. Prodanovic
