Right now, some servers allow players to fly the AI planes, but they can only be flown from the outside view. It would be really awsome if you could allow us to fly them from the no cockpit view in multi. That way, you dont have to take the time to model the cockpits, and we can still dogfight in these planes instead of just bombing. Thanks.

If anyone supports this idea, then post something. I'm interested in what you think.

Wrong suggestion! AI FM is NOT the same as flyable planes have, so it's impossible without adding "real" FM to them. And that's a lot of work...

NO, i think it would be good. It would be up to the host as to wether or not to allow certain planes, and since they are already flyable from the outside view, why not have the inside view as well. I see no reason why there should be no inside view.

do not agree

they have very very basic flight models which I suspect are tweaked a bit to give the dumb AI an edge over real pilots, they do not overheat ever, they seem to climb better,

so in no-cockpit mode they would own the proper planes, people wouold only fly AI planes online

I can understand that. I didnt relize the had a bad flight model. But still, it would be up to the host to allow thoses planes or not.

this feature already exist :

and yes, they are very simplified FM

However yes, they can overheat (even happened to break an engine from overheating)

NO, I like to have the cokpit around me. Without this Flying a plane is like playing an arcade game.
The immersive aspect is more important than the FM.
If you go this way you can also suppress the sounds and the ground textures ;-)
I definitively need more flyable planes.
Thanks.
