Hi Guys,

Is there a way to enable the telltale arrows in cockpit view?

I prefer to fly via cockpit rather than no-cockpit view as I get a better feeling of what the plane is doing, not to mention that it looks better http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm using the FB/AEP/PF merged install v4.01m

All help truly appreciated

Cheers, Buk

The blue and red arrows in "wonder-woman" view that tell you where the other planes are.

a nautical term for the strings on the sails that tell which way the wind is blowing and if it's blowing cleanly.

Buk,

I don't believe there is a way to get those arcade guides with cockpit view. They're an inseperable part of the "Wonder Woman" no-cockpit view "feature".

And, as with any arcade feature, it should be avoided. If you want to know who or what is around your aircraft, LOOK AROUND FOR IT. Yes, it's a challenge, but that's what the pilots did. Seeing is a key element in Situational Awareness, which is a core skill in aerial combat.

So, in short, learn to get along without HUD-like triangles doing your visual acquisition work for you. This will give you more appreciation for what they did, and will increase your skill too, over time.

Take up the challenge.

True, but the telltale the original poster was referring to is the one that means an indicator or outward sign.

As in the "telltale" sign of an oil leak from your car would be the stain in your driveway. Or Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart". Or the position of an airplane by the "telltale" arrow pointing at it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

However, you knew that, I was just clarifying, hehe.
