Request: Allow targeting reticle to be activated for on-board camera views

33.6k AgDynamics  5.3 years ago

Title is pretty self-explanatory. As of right now, the crosshairs and missile targeting circle are only available in cockpit view. When people build very complex, very compact, or very detailed planes they often have to hide the cockpit somewhere that is not ideal for targeting.

A toggle switch for the in-game first-person cameras that activates the crosshair and targeting circle (while also disabling the cockpit's targeting systems) would solve this issue.

It would also make on-board defensive turrets and anti-air vehicles more feasible, allowing the guns and crosshairs to move independently of the vehicle's cockpit and direction of travel.

I understand that this may not be possible, especially if it conflicts with how the the AI handles targeting, but it would be nice to have.

    This would be extremely useful, especially with old replicas that have backward facing or side facing weapons.

    We agree, this would be a nice feature. Its been on our list for a while now, the trick is finding time to get it done. This list is long...

    You can make a HUD with a vtol RCN, but it is not as good as crosshairs...
