Can anyone explain why this is such a heated issue?

Personally I haven't seen a shred of anything that tells me that I should give a dead rat @ss about it.

I thought those areas weren't mapped? So you can't see them in the cockpit? Essentially you'd raise your POV, but the bar would still be there, is my understanding. That's why I can't see what is the big deal

I'm on a rampage on too many 6DOF threads.

Just something to do while I watch some racing on TV.

Oleg himself.. back in the 190 bar too thick days posted a picture from the Fw190 cockpit where the POV was adj UP.. As to simulate you sitting up straight and thus seeing the top of the dash board.. You know something you would do in RL if trying to maintain sight of the bogie that just droped below your nose.

It would be there.. but now.. just like in real life it would be lower than you are looking.. thus not blocking your view.. Granted.. you line of sight through the gun sight is now usless.. BUT! The idea is you would be able to maintain sight of the bogie!!! Just like in RL!! Take the early P47 for example.. so much junk in the forward view.. and bars that are so thick.. A bogie could REVERSE while behind one of those cockpit bars and you wouldnt know it until it showed up again going the other way.. But with 6DOF you could lean left/right to MAINTAIN SIGHT of the bogie!! Ultimtaly manuvering your plane to bring the bogie back into sight of your gunsight! See what Im saying?

EXCEPT the part where it shows the CFS3 WWII cockpit.. it is short.. but watch how he moves left to look down the LHS of the nose.. then back to center.. etc.

It's a trendy discussion, I suppose.

I do agree that it would be a nice addition to this wonderful sim, but if 1C says he cant/wont do it, it becomes a moot point.

It does, however, allow some of our more esteemed comtemporaries an avenue in which they can hold their breath and stomp up and down until they turn blue. You know, just like they did as children when their mommy wouldn't allow them to have that piece of candy at the checkout stand.

It is entertaining, isn't it? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful...


I didn't check any movies, tag. I'm on 56.6 here, and my work PC is on a network that thinks anything over 2KB in download size is kiddieporn

If the areas are mapped, i can see the desire
