I hope colored mini map means full colored map.

Not only does it look better, but it doesn't look as CnP from BF3.

Still not quite sure why they take pictures of the monitor instead of hitting print screen. I'd be a hell of a lot clearer.

Actual screenshots require internal approval before they are released.

"Behind the scenes" camera shots don't.

Re: Cockpit View (Higby Twitter)


Quite nice.

I disagree with those claiming the middle rectangular display area blocks too much ground view; IMO, this is/could be a conscious game design decision to limit the view of the ground in order to force air to ground aircraft into specific types of flight patterns to have a good situational awareness of what's going on on the ground. If that's the case, it's a distinct balance point and will probably dovetail with weaponry on both sides of the air/ground war to promote certain behaviors and balances. And that's a good thing, and not necessarily worth trifling with in order to "give me more viewable space."

I also like the look of the Biolab dome. Looks like they went with one of the translucent designs that lets you see the structure within; that was my biggest factor in my preferences when the multiple designs were shown.

Re: Mosquito Cockpit View (Higby Twitter)


If that rectangular cockpit piece in the center stays I want to see it used for something, like...
- vehicle health / status
- ammo status
- countermeasures/afterburner status.

It's the perfect spot for that sort of information and it looks like it was meant to have something there.

I have somewhat poor eyesight, but it looks like the speed is listed in KPH, this makes me happy.

Re: Mosquito Cockpit View (Higby Twitter)


I love it!

The only piece of (constructive) criticism I can find is that the red instrumentation is far too bright. But that's probably just because it's still a WIP. I wonder if we'll be able to customize our cockpits at all, maybe a pair of fuzzy dice?

Every new pic I see of this game I say to myself. "How is this game not ready to play?"

It could even stand for knots per hour, everyone could be equally confused then and we could all go almost twice as fast!
