CUSTOM GUNSIGHTS FOR PF

Is it possible to have your own custom gunsights? I dont really like the default ones. It be awesome if we could create our own!!

No, you cannot mod any part of any aircraft apart from it's paint scheme.

And for what it's worth, a plane that came with PF does indeed have a custom...and historically accurate gunsight

One of the things that many flight simmers insist on is that some type of control exists, that keeps the aircraft at least arguably close to real life. This isn't Crimson Skies or Xwing, after all, if the desire exists to customise things like this, this is not the sim (or game) to do that with http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif It's a WWII combat flight simulation. The gunsight you see is the gunsight you get, end of story. Most people, myself included, would not like the addition of user-customisable systems like gunsights.

One thing that bugs me is that the P51D-25-NA had "presets" on its gunsight, like FW190,Me109 and so on (showing the optimal firing distance), sadly this isn't ingame

That's the K-14 gunsight, and it certainly is in the P51-D20 in IL2-FB-PF, you should check again. Here it is:

This is right after selecting the wingspan for FW-190; the range (distance) can be adjusted as well

This a clse-up view, notice the selector right above the 'NO HAND HOLD' sign, you can see the selector shifting when you adjust the gyroscopic sight:

The K-14 gyroscopic gunsight is operated with the same keys as the level bombing gunsights of the bombers, you need to assign keys for those commands (to change distance and wingspan). Do a search in these forums, you'll find a number of posts explaining its use.

There, just check this link for the search results on "K-14 gunsight"
