View Full Version : Weapon view?

01-02-2005, 03:04 PM
Is it there? I can't seem to see the option? Thought it would be a bit strange not to be there since almost every other sim I've played in my life has this feature. Any ideas why this wasn't included?

I can understand that this wouldn't be applicable to MG and Cannon & possibly rockets also, but surley everyone would want to see their iron striking home?

Apologies if it is available and I just haven't seen it. If it's NOT availabel can I ask how all you regulars get a decent view of your target going up? Is it a quick hit of F2 & spin that mouse?

No weapon view. We try to keep it as real as possible. Then again, there's no cockpit view. Go figure.

Just look out your cockpit to see if you hit or missed. Setting a time delayed fuse of around 2 seconds or so makes it easier for you to look back at your target.

if you build a mission you can set up cameras to view targets which are of little use while you're playing the mission but you can use them while replaying the mission with great effect

Weapon view is "fun", but it's cheating. If you won't risk a flyover to see if you hit...well, then you don't really want to know, do you?

Fliers risked their lives to go back over a target to make a damage assesment, and others took risks making higher alt camera passes. You have to EARN it, baby.

You wanna be sure? Go look. Just don't be surprised if the AAA gunners don't give you a warm welcome.
