Aircraft without VCs - go old school: 2d cockpit window & rear bitmaps?

Recommended Posts

I posted this back in March in one of the design forums, but with no answers. I'm hoping a polite bump in the FSX forum (if this type of cross-posting is allowed?) might reach more viewers with possible ideas:-

 

Specifically, the iFDG MD-11. I'm using a 2D instrument panel. and in addition to the main instrument panel there's bitmaps for the other cockpit views. Previous versions of FS would have utilised these when panning around with the joystick hat. For example when panning to the rear I see the outside world, wing parts and the main undercarriage bays. Due to the lack of a VC, can I somehow set up the panel cfg so that I'd see the cockpit door when looking to the rear etc? OR is the view setup something which needs to be coded into the air file?

 

Thanks,


Mark Robinson
