  1. The point of the thread was to ask for suggestion on camera solutions, whereas you are just trolling because you want to defend a poorly designed camera. You are probably the type of person to also think that asbestos in housing is not a big deal, and would adapt to that as well, lol.
  2. That and so much more! I was trying to look around in wing view just now, after using one of the fixed camera options. It does not let you look around once you are in that fixed view. You can only look around in the generic external view. So limiting. Don't get me wrong, the views are beautiful.
  3. It's funny that you both think this is a good camera system. Guess you just haven't experienced any better. Your loss, really. 🤷‍♂️
  4. Yup, this was it! It's weird how they placed the option to switch to cockpit, under a different category than the one to switch to external, when there is a category that has the word switch in it. 🤦‍♂️ If Cockpit, Drone, External and Fixed are camera states, there should be an independent option under switch or cameras in general to switch or cycle between all of them. I'll just have to get used to the new system, but I do believe that an addon like Chaseplane can make life easier. Each view is nice and cleanly categorized, in a compact manner, and you can right click any view and assign a key or button. Either way, thanks for the help!
  5. It's not just me. I made sure to include a link in my original post, to another thread with someone having the same exact issue. Googling will show more examples. Just because you can't replicate it, doesn't mean it's not happening to others.
  6. That's great but lets get back to the true purpose of this thread, which is to ask if there are any alternative solutions out there for camera control in MSFS. Let me know if you find anything!
  7. Just being able to assign weights to cameras is awesome. Not to mention details like how it pans from camera to camera, and what views it uses in cinematic mode. All easily assignable by right clicking on a view. Spoiled me!
  8. I've owned MSFS for a year now, and can confidently say that the camera system has a lot of room for improvement. Chaseplane is sorely missed.
  9. https://blog.discourse.org/2018/06/understanding-discourse-trust-levels/ Doesn't seem to let new users vote, unless I am mistaken. How long, and how much activity, does it usually take until you can vote? Seems like a little steep of a requirement for a quick vote, which means it's probably not going to get a lot of traction, sadly.
  10. I saw some other comment also suggest that. What should I be upvoting in that thread? Original post? Comments?
  11. That's what is not working, unfortunately. I also posted a link to another forum thread where someone else was having the same problem. Googling it will show you that many others have also run into it. It takes you to external, but then does not want to go back into cockpit view. This should be a very simple thing to do and set up, but the camera control options are convoluted. An addon like Chaseplane would have saved me a lot of time on these issues right away, in my opinion.
  12. I appreciate that some find the controller to be useful. I want to have more key options available though, and would prefer finding a camera addon solution in the long term, if possible. Chaseplane provided more than just view shortcuts. It gave cinematics, auto import of views, customization of cameras, easy-to-use UI for moving around the camera, and so forth. The control options in MSFS are clunky, and seem to reset back to the top of page every time I change a key assignment. It seems to expand sections I am not going into. It's missing some useful settings that would make life easier, in my opinion.
  13. I see all the beautiful screenshots of MSFS, and would like to switch over from P3D, but their cameras are just so hacky. For example, there doesn't seem to be a clear way to toggle between cockpit and external cameras. Others have also had the same confusion. The following shortcut does not work: What is everyone using as a camera solution? I thought Chaseplane did an amazing job with P3D, and cannot wait for their MSFS version.
  14. I agree that A is a 'nice to have feature', but B should be handled in a more graceful manner. I personally end up having to load up at multiple airports all the time, for example to test the latest GSX bugs and what airports they are happening at. I think it's reasonable to expect wrong airport loading. Regarding the last point, I am following the same path in Pro Atc, and have the latest Navigraph updates. I load the same flight plan from simbrief into both pro atc and fms, so they should be the same.
