Spot view ... Default setting wrong , help wanted

Recommended Posts

HiWhen I load my model in FS the default spot view distance is increased to 262 feet. This makes the model seem too small and I have to go through the 'view' option to change it back.Can anyone tell me 1. why does it do this and 2. how to correct itThanksJohn

This is something that has always baffled me about FS...how does it determine how far away to set the initial spot view? It seems to pick a different number for each aircraft. There's nothing in the cfg files, and nothing I've noticed so far in the mdl design process...does FS just make some calculation based on who-knows-what information to determine the distance?Matt

Roughly, mine seems to be 2.5 to 3 times the wing dimension, but mine varies with each start by about 5-10 percent. Milton
