Project wing view

Pro Member Chief Captain
tomthetank Chief Captain

Very Happy Hello all
Got a iFDG airbus? Are you Yawn of sitting in front of the engines?
Do you want to sit behind the wing Yes Do you want to see the flaps moving and the spoilers deploy on landing Yes Yes

Here's how........Open up you fs9 folder/aircraft/iFDG airbus/panel
(If you are aliasing the default 737 then copy all of it then paste in the iFDG panel)
Now alter the lines in views to (Copy&paste)
[VIEWS]
VIEW_RIGHT_WINDOWS=36
VIEW_RIGHT_ZOOM=0.9
VIEW_RIGHT_EYE=1.0, 0.0, -23.0
VIEW_RIGHT_DIR=10.0, 0.0, 70.0

VIEW_LEFT_WINDOWS=36
VIEW_LEFT_ZOOM=0.9
VIEW_LEFT_EYE=1.0, 0.0, -23.0
VIEW_LEFT_DIR=10.0, 0.0, 290.0

Save and fire up fs9 and get ready for the most realistic views yet (in my opinion) And you still get the front engine views(keypad 1 & 3 for engines 4 & 6 for rear wing views)
Will post a screen shot here very soon(its up to the boss)
Please note I have altered the settings for a better angle

Ps any one know how to alter the keypad config so that the views are in order(it would be nice to have rear views on 1 & 3 etc

Happy viewing Thumbs Up!

Does this work cause ive tried a couple and they are rubish

Thumbs Up! Yes this one works because the view point has moved towards the back of the plane
Most of the other wing views add/replace bmp files to the panel so that your adding a picture of a wing
This just shows what is allready there(and as it is animated you get to see the flaps move etc)
NOTE this has been tested for the iFDG Airbus only
Try it with some turbulance and watch those wings dance

I am trying with other aircraft and will post when ready

Enjoy the view

Smile Hello again
I've been messing with the Posky Boeing 767-300 ER and have a nice close up view of the left wing(again showing flaps and spoilers)as if you are sat just behind it.The right wing view is from further back (about 4 or 5 rows) again with full animation.
You may have to add a new section to the panel file(dependant on what panel you use)
Open the panel config with notepad and look for window titles

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main Panel
Window01=GPS
Window02=Overhead Panel
Window03=Mini Panel
Window04=Views

I've added the window04 .Yours may be window03 or whatever
Now scroll down to the last [windows] entry and then copy and paste this after it (leave a space)

[Window04]
[VIEWS]
VIEW_RIGHT_WINDOWS=36
VIEW_RIGHT_ZOOM=0.5
VIEW_RIGHT_EYE=1.0, 0.0, -30.0
VIEW_RIGHT_DIR=10.0, 0.0, 50.0

VIEW_LEFT_WINDOWS=36
VIEW_LEFT_ZOOM=0.8
VIEW_LEFT_EYE=1.0, 0.0, -20.0
VIEW_LEFT_DIR=10.0, 0.0, 280.0

And thats it close and save then fire up fs9 and become a passenger
This posky plane is one with flexing wings.....watch em bend on touchdown

Enjoy

Have you found any new wing views lately?

Beautiful! Every time I fly commercially I always say under my breath as we prepare to takeoff off or land " Show me your feathers you lovely angel. Commercial airplanes are graceful and beautiful. Corny, ain't I ?

I was trying with the default fs9 aircraft but could not get it quite right Wall Bashing But at the moment am quite happy with the Airbus

Are there any you would like me to try? Hack

It'd be pretty sweet to have one for the default 747! That's always a cool plane!

I have tried Hack but most of the default aircraft models seem to have the side views built into the model of the aircraft
The only way I have found to add them is if the side views of the cockpit are in the panel,then you just delete them and add the code Idea Thinking out loud here .......what if I delete the VC in the code Umm... I will have a play about and keep you posted

edit

Wall Bashing No no no, do-not even think of it

I think I will stick to add on aircraft as it is less stressfull Poke in Eye

could someone please help me or explain it more detailed?

Cheers

What can you do and where is it all going wrong?
Tell me which Airbus you are trying this on
What panel you use

Pac-Man Guest

Hi again!

Thank you for answering! Very Happy
i'm using the IFDG Iberia with the default 737 panel..

do i just have to paste all that numbers into the "panel.cfg"?

i don't seems to work for me.. Sad

Pro Member Chief Captain

There are better panels about than the default 737 one,however one step at a time,
1st copy the default 737 panel config(open fs9/aircraft/737-400/panel,right click mouse over the note pad entry and select copy)Now paste it somewhere safe(create a new note pad on your desktop and paste it there (open the new note pad right click mouse and select paste)
2 come back to this page and copy all from below(as above)
3 Goto the default panel config and click edit(at the top)select all and then delete.
4 Right click your mouse in the now empty space and select paste.Close and select Yes to save changes
5 fire up fs9 and fly your Airbus

Note you will not get wingviews with the default aicraft,but you should if the panel is alised to other add on craft

Copy and paste all from below and enjoy Wink

You switch to VC- vitual cockpit and use Shift+ the num pad (1,3,4,6,7,9). Make sure the num pad is turned off.

Yes you can! You don't actually see the window and than the wing rather just the wings, but it's still very cool! Wink
