What ZOOM is best for jetliner cockpit views?

Recommended Posts

What ZOOM setting should one use in the cockpit for flying in a medium and large jetliner in FS9? I have a range of settings in various models, like the whole Boeing series, that range from 0.57 to 1.00 and they have considerably different visual/optical effects and definitely influence lining up for landing, etc. But I don't know what ZOOM factor is most realistic.Also, where do you go in the aircraft file(s) to change the cockpit zoom factor?Any suggestions/advice gratefully received, thanks.JS

I use 0.80 for all my views. I find this a compromise between the unrealistic 1.00 zoom and zooming out too much, making the view unrealistic as well.Andreas

Depends on the model. Some are modelled to different scales (so too large or too small) making different zoom levels and/or eyepoint settings necessary.I generally use 0.75 for most aircraft at all times.

I stay with zoom 1.0, mainly because of performance reasons. The farer you zoom out, the worse the performance is (just watch your fps counter), the more stutters you get.Wolfgang

Everything I fly, from helicopters, to heavies, to GA...I fly all of it at:0.50Why? Just because it looks right to me. Oh, and I get no stutters from it, and I'm using a Pentium-3!

I like .70 for front, left front, right front, and .60 for side views on back.Noel

I think 0.75 looks very good for most VC's. You see a spread of instruments and get a nice view of outside.JS
