Wider FOV for Cockpit view
« on: November 25, 2020, 08:00:13 AM »

As on the subject, is There a Way to set once and for all a wider fov when on cockpit view?
Every time I come back from external view cockpit view fov comes back native and too narrow...
Any idea?

For me these settings in Conf.ini work like a charm (at the end of conf.ini)
De fov=120 gives it a 120 degrees, you can change that to something other if you like, but do not make it to large, some planes will get distorted.

;FOV settings
fov=120
FOVLog=0
FOVSpeed=200
FOVDefault=120
FOVAnim=0

Are you using NG-CAM, shardana?

That is doing it.
Remove it and you will get the 120 as standard view.
I had to remove mine also.

Yes, set the default FOV and don't change FOV.

Every time I come back from external view cockpit view fov comes back native and too narrow...
Because you changed FOV?

I am sorry but I am not following.

Hi whistler I’ll try to be clearer. I find the default fov in cockpit  view too close to the front of the cockpit, so to widen the view of the cockpit i push wide view and i get what i consider the best cockpit view.
The problem is that when I push external view and then I come back to cockpit view the fov is back to the native One and so too narrow. So I have to click again wide view in order to get cockpit view the Way I want.
I have tried the method above so to change the default cockpit view but when I try it I’m still stuck with the same problem.
I have tried even without cam mod but still nothing....

Let's use NG-CAM. Mod's default FOV is 90:


Let's now set FOVDefault=120 in conf.ini:


The FOV value is global, and that means if I go outside and change the FOV:


When I go back to the pit I will get the last FOV set:


The FOVDefault entry sets the initial FOV but it also engages and sets the "Normal View" control key to, in this case, to 120.
Meaning that whenever I need to go back to my default FOV (120) I just go and press the "Normal View" FOV key:


I honestly don't understand what your problem or request is, shardana.

I interpret shardana's desire as having the FoV by itself jump to the default setting when going back into the cockpit from any external viewpoint. I know this currently is not possible, but perhaps new code could be implemented to do this.

I do know that the currently set FoV is globally applied and maintained whenever switching viewpoints. This even extends to the builder, as far as I know. If I have some particular FoV set while flying, then quit the mission and go to the FMB, that same FoV is applied there.
