View Full Version : Views (again) - change spot view and cockpit
12-07-2006, 01:24 PM
I have 2 problems:
1) When i zoom in and out of locked spot, it zooms too close to the aircraft. If I zoom out, it goes so far away from the aircraft that it looks like a small bug. Is there anyway I can change the level of zoom?
2) I'd like to change my cockpit. Look at the attachment. Id like to change the bar in the middle. Is that possible.
Thanx everyone for your help along the way...

With (1). Press AND HOLD Control key, then press the '-' or '+' keys. This keeps zoom to 1.00 (recommended so as to not get distortion) and it will move the Camera position (back or forward). I do it all the time. When you press Ctrl+Spacebar, it resets camera position (centered) but leaves zoom at 1.00, so you have to redo Ctrl/- or + adjustment. Add-on AC are worse, and can be too close or too far. Not wanting (knowing how( to change in xml or cfg, I use this method rather than fret and stress about it. Takes a second.
With (2). You can use 'W' key to go to minipanel view, and if you need GPS use 'Shift+X' key (X=2 or 3 or ?) to pop it up then resize and reposition, and it will stay there while in 2D panel view even if you go to spot view(s). There is a way, but edit of bmp is needed.

With #1 you can also do SHIFT + or - to do small increments for your zoom.
