Thread: pilot avatar suddenly appearing in the cockpit!

  1. #1

    Default pilot avatar suddenly appearing in the cockpit!

    Hi
    While flying I sometimes get an avatar to appear at the pilot seat and completely block the way to see the inside of the cockpit. Only way to finalise the flight is to fly from outside of the plane. I have no idea why this guy takes my seat and it is very annoying as I cant make it leave the place. Any idea what I could do?

    Hi, I also see the pilot sometimes (in VR)
    It’s not ideal, but you could always move your viewpoint forward a bit

    There is a similar thread about it from a couple of weeks back…

    What pane? The TMB performance addon caused that problem with me. I deleted it from Community folder.

    I am using the Piper Arrow 2 from Just Flight. This always happens at the most critical phase... landing. So annoying.

    Open the Piper Arrow 2's folder in your Community folder and edit the CAMERAS.CFG to move your eyepoint forward, e.g:

    [VIEWS]
    eyepoint = 5.2, -0.9, -0.2 ; (feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from reference datum

    Add 6 inches (0.5) like so:

    [VIEWS]
    eyepoint = 5.7, -0.9, -0.2 ; (feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from reference datum

    NOTE: I don't have this plane so the above settings are from the Blackbox Islander, but you get the idea.

    In addition to @Tiger1962 excellent suggestions, I would also go onto their forums and report this issue.
