Changing the position of the camera view in spotplane mode

Recommended Posts

This weekend I am going to do some SLI tests in spotplane view.

The external view is the only view where SLI can actually work.

 

In spotplane view the camera is directed towards the plane.

And if you zoom in really close the view can even shake a little.

 

What I want : the camera view at the front windshield position directed forward.

 

Anyone knows how this can be done ?

Might not be exactly what you need, but a quick and dirty way to do that would be to select 2D panel and press W to suppress the panel itself, leaving only the front view.

I think if you use FSRecorder's spot view camera, you can move and pan the camera around, using the eypoint movement commands and your hat switch or mouse look:

 

Eyepoint (move back): CTRL+ENTER

Eyepoint (move down): SHIFT+BACKSPACE
Eyepoint (move forward):CTRL+BACKSPACE
Eyepoint (move left): CTRL+SHIFT+BACKSPACE
Eyepoint (move right): CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER
Eyepoint (move up): SHIFT+ENTER
Eyepoint (reset): CTRL+SPACE
 
It's possible you need to use the FSRecorder menu to edit the spot view camera settings.

What I need is spotplane view as that is the only mode in which SLI will work.

So no VC or 2d cockpit.

 

Spotplane view is always directed towards the aircraft.

I have been reading about EZdock. With that program It should be possible to get close to the front windows.

 

The question then is if it possible to turn the view 180 degrees towards the front and lock it.

 

This seems to be a help :
