New Camera Views

I added some camera views and tweaked a few others, specifically; I added a close-up view for the radios, autopilot switches, stab trim/parking brake, fuel panel, electrical panel, and hydraulic panel. I also added the gunnerís position (not used anymore). If you want to use them install as follows:

1) First back up your original aircraft.cfg file in case you donít like them.
2) Find the entire VC camera definition section starting at [CameraDefinition.001]; make sure it is .001 and NOT .1, the section from .1 to .6 are your external views. The origin= line for the correct section should all be Virtual Cockpit.
3) REPLACE that section, from .001 to the end of the camera views (where the [pitot_static] section begins) with:

[CameraDefinition.001]
Title = "CoPilot"
Guid = {8ff6c134-098d-409f-baec-caba3f683f98}

Thanks for that Dan.

I'll give them ago. I will make one small change to each of them for my personal preference though.

You have these two lines in each cameradefinition:
PitchPanRate=20
HeadingPanRate=60


I will change the numerical value and add a third line:
PitchPanRate=30
HeadingPanRate=75
PanAcceleratorTime=0


This just changes the movement of the POV hat to the same setting as the VC camera setting in the camera.cfg. In case others might want to do the same. Wink

Good Call Mark,

I edited the Copilot, EW and Gunner with the new values. I left the rest slow, they are designed to supplant the need for a 2d panel, is folks want to look around fast in those views it's easy to add your tweaks.

Hi Dan.

I do that for ALL my CameraDefinition.xxx, including external views.

Example:

[CameraDefinition.1]
Title = "Front View"
Guid = {0ae3f864-da10-4e5a-977c-b9bba47d6f7a}
Description = Front View
Origin = Center
SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel      <- In some aircraft this is set to NONE so I change it to Swivel
SnapPbhReturn = FALSE
PanPbhAdjust = Swivel       †<- In some aircraft this is set to NONE so I change it to Swivel
PanPbhReturn = FALSE
Track = None
ShowAxis = FALSE
AllowZoom = TRUE
InitialZoom = 0.75
ShowWeather = Yes
PitchPanRate=30
HeadingPanRate=75
PanAcceleratorTime=0

InitialXyz = -4, 1, 43
InitialPbh = 5, 0, 180
XyzAdjust = TRUE
Category=Aircraft
MomentumEffect=TRUE
ClipMode=Minimum
xyzRate=5.0

This means that the movement of the view using a Pov Hat Switch (it works for key presses too) is the same as the interior CameraDefinitions.

These are the FIRST modification that I make to ALL aircraft.cfg of all my add-on aircraft. OH. And I always backup the original first. Grin

Hi guys,
Having gained an interest in adding camera views I found these tutorials and used them to create my first addition.

http://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?title=Change_cameras_views
and
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc526984.aspx

Question, I used the Guid as per the example which worked fine so is there a formula for generating these or do I just make up my own unique code?

Thank you
  

Regards Bruce

I just use

http://createguid.com/

I would assume with an understanding of the 128 bit structure you could just make up your own, but when it is as easy as a click and a copy I don't dig that deep.

I have one I downloaded but can't find (at the moment) and so have to use an online generator. So I use this one: http://www.guidgenerator.com/

Hi.
I have track IR5 and when I tried these views , they where not correct for me , but if I use these as a starting point , and modify them , so I have all 5 crew positions i might be able to get it to work better .

Hi.
I have reworked the views in my B52, to best suit me and my track IR5 , I have the pilot and co-pilots views left as was in original v1.1 , and modified Hvyeng gunners view and EW view , added a new ENG position , not knowing how to generate a guid number I used one in Hvyeng original post , done away with the aisle stand view , and modified the overhead view so I can scan both aisle stand or overhead using track IR5.
Heres my camera views .
[CameraDefinition.001]

Category = Cockpit
PitchPanRate=20
HeadingPanRate=60
InitialXyz=0.00, 0.00, -4.75
InitialPbh=0, 0, 180 

on the engineers position I have left in an alternative positon , which can do Aisle stand and overhead which would simulate the eng seat in a positon to help pilots with throttles and such , but you need to delete the // for the front of the pos numbers to activate , also I have left some info on what the initial xyz and pbh mean,if any one wishes to play with the figures to suit your needs.
Still testing and fine tuneing the rest of the cfg file, to make this bird fly more like the real thing .
