View Full Version : viewing the passenger cabin - question
08-01-2004, 01:47 PM
I have noticed that on some aircraft, when trying to get into the passenger cabin in VC mode, I find myself in the open air with no cabin textures visible.
When viewing the same aircraft in SPOT view however, zooming right in will reveal the detailed passenger cabin.
Is there anything I can "tweak" in aircraft or panel config files which will allow me to move back in VC mode into a visible passenger cabin?
Without additional software if possible.
A good example of this is the excellent freeware Nord Aviation 262 which was recently released.

no, the interior model is different to the exterior.

You could only ask the makers of the plane to make a version of the plane that has the complete exterior model a second time but defined as interior view.
I do not understand why people make such perfect interior models but do not make it visible from the inside VC view. Even if it lacks the gauges...

I agree Mathias.
On some aircraft, clicking on the cocpit door handle makes the passenger cabin visible in VC view.
Would be very interesting to find out how this is done.
Anyone have any idea?

These textures are an addition to the virtural cockpit,so even if you never move from your seat, your computer will still be having to handle them. The result is low frame rates for some machines. If it was never built in the first place, you will not be able to go there.
Some developers have made options for Virtural Cabins planes and the same thing without. PMDG 737 gives you a choice of 2d, 2d and VC and the full nine yards with all three. Obviously the 737 is an advanced aircraft to start with and the addition of the virtural cabin can make slower machines scream in agony.
