Alternate eye point for VC..Is it possible...

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,Would anybody know if it is possible to create an eyepoint in the VC mode that is different from the one on in 2D view?eg. 2 ft left 2 ft down 25 ft behind and looking at 90 degrees left.If possible, what would the correct syntax be ?Thanks

The VC eye point is in the aircraft.cfg file, ex. B737-400:[Views]eyepoint=43.7, -1.31, 3.7 //(feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from reference datumIt is located from the reference datum point:[WEIGHT_AND_BALANCE]max_gross_weight = 150000 // (pounds)empty_weight = 74170 // (pounds)reference_datum_position = 0, 0, 0 // (feet) distance from FlightSim Reference position: (1/4 chord, centerline, waterline)empty_weight_CG_position = -5, 0, 0 // (feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from specified datummax_number_of_stations = 50For the B737-400, the reference datam point is approximately 7ft behind the leading edge of the wing at the point next to the fuselage. Therefore, you measure 43.7ft forward of this position, 1.31 to the left of the centerline of the aircraft, and 3.7ft above the waterline of the aircraft.For more information, visit http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimulator/ , Article Index, FS2002 SDK, and download the FSEdit SDK.Look at the MD83, it uses a different reference_datum_position similar to aircraft manufacturers. The zero point is actually in front of or at the nose of the aircraft.W. Sieffert
