The J8a (Gladiator) Just the best looking pit in the game

BF110 I185 J8a the last is the best ofcourse.

The I-185 has a great layout, not so much where the controls are as just the 'landscape' of it and the view out of it also.

Sometimes I crash in the Bf110 because I am looking at the 'pit...especially looking forward from the rear gunner pos.

The Gladiator pit is the champion rendering of a cockpit in my mind - all time - any sim.

I do like the P47 pit also - so stark and plain.. it enhances the the pilot mantra to 'fly where you are looking'... no distractions in there.

I like the bf109 - sure, it needs a bit of retouching here'n there ... Just feel comfortable in it - could be, that even though I fly the other planes and enjoy'em, I always return to the 109... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The very best are the J8A and I-185. They're as good as anything in Lock On, which is praise indeed.

Almost as good are the Fw-190, Bf 110, He-162, Me-163, P-40, Me-262, Ki and Zero. They're great, but don't quite have the photographic quality of the very latest stuff. The Fw-190 is particularly impressive because it's been in the game from the start.

Disappointing cockpits include the Hurricane and Spitfire. They really should have been better.

My least favourite has to be the Bf-109. Some of the texturing is so crude it's impossible to tell the actual 3-D shape of the instrument deck. It's a great shame that as the game has evolved there have beeen no refreshes of the earlier aircraft. The result is that we end up with questionable additions to the game like the I-185 having excellent cockpits, and machines that should be regular elements of play being left with cockpits that were only just acceptable when the original was released.

Regards,

RocketDog.

Hehe, well despite the above mentioned shortcommings, I still like the 109-cockpit - maybe I'm just used to it by now! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
