Need Help with annoying feature

Recommended Posts

Hi community,

 

I've been wanting to find an answer to this for ages, but have always forgotten to post....lol.

 

Sometimes, my FSX will restart because of invisible object collisions (usually AI that has not informed of their intended movements). Anyway, when the flight restarts, the sim is very closely zoomed-in, almost in a fish-eye camera style. I hate this because it ruins my screenshots.

 

Is there a way to bypass this awful view? No idea what ACES were thinking with this.....

 

Thanks,

Andrew.

Press CTRL and SPACEBAR on your keyboard. It should reset the viewpoint.

I had so many of these invisible object collisions that I too disabled collisions along time ago.  This also stops you getting mown down by a fast jet on approach when you are flying a slow approach in a light aircraft too.

Sorry guys, I should have been more specific; I was talking about how the aircraft looks from an external view after you have had a collision and the sim has reset. Things appear to be dramatically zoomed in and "fish eye" looking.

 

Thanks again,

 

Andrew.

Eyepoint Reset; Ctrl+Space.  Happens frequently to me.

Another vote for disabling collisions.  I got tired of AI ground vehicles and aircraft hitting me.

This brings to mind when I first started simming.

 

"Turn off collisions' said my mate.

"No, no, I want full Monty realism" said I.

That was until I got a bit disillusioned with crashing because I ran over a blade of grass or, the worst case ever, was pulling up to the refueling station at Aero Pelican and crashing! They still haven't fixed it.

 

Never used it since. You KNOW when you've made a balls up on landing anyway. :fool:
