Y oh Y is this setting getting so popular in HL. No padlock, but cockpit off. Just doesnt make sense. If they wana set cockpit to off, y dont they just allow padlock for those who play with the cockpit view. Reallie befuddles me!

padlock should be banned, they should call it targeting aid like in cfs2 cfs3 same thing.

Theres plenty of PL servers on hl, most have externals on and no pit. HL has all different variations of settings, I'm sure you can find one you like. 90% ez

The server that has the best settings is the one you host yourself. I don't like the settings in many servers in HL, but I don't join them. We should all be glad that ppl are willing to host severs for us (essp. ded. servers). Taking the time and effort to give us places to play, and asking for nothing in return.

I must agree with your logic on this one. It does not make much sense to allow external views which have their own form of padlock while padlock from the cockpit is disabled.

The way I would have handled the game settings is to make disabling or enabling padlock apply to both cockpit and external views. This would be a good compromise for the guys that like flying at high difficulty and want external views enabled but don't want any form of padlock enabled. This would also allow AI aircraft to be used on dogfight maps with higher difficulty settings.
