Setting up custom views - easy? (like in XP11)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


Hi friends 😀

One of the best design features of X-Plane 11 is its excellent default view & eyepoint-movement controls. In a matter of minutes you can set up custom views and bind them to hotkeys from virtually anywhere inside or outside the airplane. Its also very simple to adjust the current view - just use the arrow keys.

Example. Setting up a left wingview in a Boeing 737-800 in X-Plane 11
1. Use arrow keys to move backward through the flightdeck door to the passenger cabin. Keeping SHIFT pressed speeds up movement
2. Arrive at the window and use small taps of arrow keys to transition in the XYZ axis & mouse to adjust view direction.
3. Press CTRL + NUMPAD 4
 
Its done. Now to get to your left wingview from the Captains seat just tap NUMPAD 4 and you're smoothly and rapidly taken there. Press the same key to go back to the flightdeck. 

Numpad keys can be used to set up other views too. Perhaps you want NUMPAD 5 to look up at the overhead?

Anyway, you get the idea. Does FS2020 have a similar system? The eyepoint view controls in FSX were so clunky.

It seems to have an all new camera system. Also with some sort of a drone view. Some have said it‘s a great advancement over past versions. Given the latest trailer there absolutely seem to be wing views etc, and looking at all the footage we’ve seen so far the camera system looks pretty flexible to me. How easy it would be to set up however, that I don’t know.

What use does it have asking all these type of questions? The alpha testers can't say anything (NDA) and the others don't know. Why speculate so much? Just wait a few more weeks, and you'll know.
