setting virtual cockpit view

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks,

Am new to P3Dv4; is there a way to have all aircraft open in vc view rather than from the rear of the airplane?

Thanks for suggestions!

Yes, set up your flight the way you want it and save it as default. From then on it should open the same way.

Vic,

Is this true for non-default aircraft as well? It's my understanding that only default aircraft can be used in default scenarios.

No, you can use whatever aircraft you want in the default scenario. Just be aware that the A2A planes are currently bugged in regard of this, means: if you use an A2A plane in your default scenario, the texture resolution is bugged and will go one step down each time you change your settings. And even more important: most complex airplane addons do not really like if they are used in a default scenario, because the initiation of some systems might be corrupted or not correct. So, the best thing is nevertheless: use a default plane in your default scenario.

No, doesn't work with PMDG's 737 either. P3D won't even start up when I have a PMDG 737 in the default scenario. I don't know if this happens with other PMDG aircraft as well.

You asked  if you "could" use non default - yes you can but it is generally not recommended if the a/c is a complex one - like the PMDG products. You are ALWAYS better off to have a simple a/c as default - it sets variables to zero and is a clean startup.

Yup, even some comparatively simple GA aeroplanes will refuse to crank up if you have them load as a default aeroplane flight, but its a cr@p shoot, some pretty complex ones will work just fine with it.

I've had to try several scenarios as defaults.  Some would lock P3d depending on aircraft or location, a bit more unstable than FSX which handled all my saved flights well.  I have one flight in Reno that always works, so I usually load that, then change aircraft and airport before flying.  An extra step, but a good workaround and I can fly where I wish.
