View Full Version : Tower View

Does any one know if it's possible and how to raise and lower the tower view,from the ground. At times I would like to fly my SU-31 as if I were standing on the ground. I used to fly RC planes years ago and I thought it might be kind of nice if I could relive ? thows days.And just think of it, you could make an old retiree with shaky hands, very happy. I might add I find this forum very informative and at times very amusing.
Thanks in advance,

Hit Alt, then W, then M, to bring up Map View. Then just type in whateveer altitude you wish in the Tower's options...:-)
1.) We design for reality, not for idealism.
Thus, you will not see virtual cabins on our aircraft. You can not see inside the real thing anyway, unless you are looking into the sun. You will find virtual cockpits but they will not be visible from outside for the same reason.
2.) We design for people with real computers. Thusly, we will not waste polygons on superfluous parts. We will use a texture when there is no noticeable difference between it and a group of performance wasting parts. We will model our aircraft efficiently. If you do not like it, too bad.
3.) We will give you the latest features, but we WILL NOT sacrifice visual accuracy to implement them. Accuracy comes before eye candy.[/font size]

And if you dont want to make it look like you are looking through binoculars, use zoom level 1, as tower views zoom level is a default of 8.
Keep on Flyin'!
