Is it possibble to pany around an airport in tower view?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to pan around an airport when in tower view? When I right click and select Outside/Tower/Nearest Tower, I get a static view from the tower. I thought that it would be possible to pan around as is the case in Spot view.Cheers,Stuart

 

I know this is a MEGA old thread, but it still applies today to FSX and now all P3D versions..

Just open the "cameras.CFG" file..

 

[CameraDefinition.007]

Title = Nearest Tower

 

Change Track to None so it looks like this:

Track = None

 

Its the tracking of your own aircraft that stops the ability to pan.

 

Save and close, job done. Now load your sim, go to tower view and pan around till you get giddy :-)

When in Tower View use "View track/pan Toggle" & you can pan around with your mouse.

Re-read what I wrote, I did say what file to do it with.

 

No need to do that. When in Tower View use "View track/pan Toggle" & you can pan around with your mouse.

 

No need to shoot me down mate, was just offering up a nice simple option that doesn't require the use of a mouse, so you can still use your hat switch or whatever you use when panning around normally.

Also, the "View track/pan" also does not seem to be enabled by default when I installed P3D v3.2, so rather than having to go configure yet another button, then remember how to turn it on and off, this method simply requires zero brain power to use it :-)

 

Simple is great right, especially when there is already enough problems to worry about with a flight sim..

 

I have 28 USB modules running on my sim, so the last thing I need to mess about with is yet another button combo, and I control all my views and panning from the yoke, I barely need to touch the mouse or keyboard at all once my flight sim is loaded..

I find this is the best method, because you can deselect the pan from the tower by pressing the key you assigned, and when you deselect the pan toggle the view from the tower will instantly slew to look at your aircraft.  This is handy for a bunch of different reasons.

 

Best wishes to all.
