With the mouse you can smoothly look everywhere you want in the cockpit as the moving of the "view" is smooth. However with the 8 Direction heys of the Joysticks you can only change view per block (Left Forward, Left, Left Back). Is there any way to change that? The way the viewing moves in LockOn is very useful and helpful. With that way Padlock would not be necessary as following a target with those directions is a real pain (something that in real life is the easiest thing to do).

Now that I thing of it the smoothness would be good even for the external views.


Generally I want to know if there is any way to make the viewing just like in LockOn.

To my knowledge there is no way to get it like "Lock On" with the keys in FB.

This is what you're after.
Smooth head motion using the hat-switch on your joystick and more...
