We prefer to only fly with cockpits like many others (though I suppose there are certain situations where externals are useful).

Notwithstanding, it would be nice to watch the "action" when not seating in a cockpit (i.e., between sorties), but have the server locked with no external views.

I suspect this is not possible now, but perhaps in a future product (i.e., BOB).

sorry for the misspelling - "seating" should have been "sitting."

TacticalSkirmsh, if I understand you right, you mean on a server as a "Spectator" while others are flying?

This would be great but it would be nicer to be able to change views to different actions and not locked to just one view.

Yes GT. It would be really nice, especially as a training tool, but anytime when you are participating online and wish to take a short break, but would like to watch that "Ace" and see how he plays, or in the case of a COOP, like to see how the "story" ends.

One should be able to toogle any plane (though an option to limit to friendly aircraft would be useful), in addition to any camera locations that have been placed on the map.

But, as I mentioned, whenever anyone actually jumps into a plane, they are locked to the cockpit with no externals.

Would be cool as an option for racing servers. You wreck, then you get to watch the finish from the grandstands. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Of course, this should be a server option to turn on/off.

Just an observation - I'm sure I'm not saying anything new here , but - there are some servers where there is a wait to get in (i.e. greatergreen) and having a slot taken up by someone who is not wishing to fly seems a little wasteful. Also if you just bind a key to record an online track you can review the track at your leisure - visiting others' planes with out taking up a slot on the server, even after you crash. If you want to take a break from flying, then it seems it would be better to exit and let someone else take your slot - no?

Good point mate! Thinking about dedicated servers where certain folks/squad(s) might be (and do http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif) play for extended periods - say 3-6 hours together, during which certain folks take short breaks.

A host may not wish to enable this option for a quick DG server for the general public.
