Thumbs up Ok everything about the Cockpit to let you know whats up


Ok this is so far whats been said by the dev team !

is the cockpit going to be toggleable or has that not been decided?

higby said : it will always be on when you're in first-person. Third-person won't have any targeting and will be mostly for spatial awareness

https://twitter.com/#!/mhigby/status/191988033925562370

Very nice... will you be able to look around in the cockpit or only forward?

higby said : You'll be able to look around pretty freely

https://twitter.com/#!/mhigby/status/191987651497304066

will do! RT @xStew360x: @mhigby please force cokpit view ON while in 1rst person thanks

So its confirm the cockpit view will stay like this and will be forced ON ! Also for those who think thats people will switch to 3rd person view to get a advantage over others they will not be able to do such thing because the 3rd person view wont have any targeting and will be mostly for spatial awareness!

Also youll be able to look around in the cockpit freely as higby said !

Now my concern is Only about the Vs aircraft who apears to have NO sidebar unlike the NC and TR ones look at those









So thats pretty much it

I was complaining about the forward blades blocking view before it was mainstream

lol well i hope they keep it since the tr & nc are low tech compared to vanu. So why not give vanu the slight advantage or even make them thinner.

I think all 3 should get sidebar the sidebar on vanu are maybe inside the bubble thats also possible we cant see properly since the vanu cockpit is almost tainted !

There seems to be something inside the VS cockpit. Not sure if it's sidebars or belts.

It gives some kind of rectangular shape.

Empires play differently I suppose. I'm sure there is a trade off in weaponry or something. I believe they will be using alien propulsion as well.

It would be cool if it looked something like the Delta Flyer's cockpit bracers just not directly in front of the FOV. Curved bracers instead of hard angles. Goes well with the sleek design of the Scythe.

NC and TR have sidebars, VS have blade wings. Both types will probably obscure the view slightly, but none of the three will probably hurt flight effectiveness that much. All three will have much better view and awareness in 3rd person anyways, so it should be fine.

I would love to see an image inside the cockpit of all 3 just for comparison though. Hell, better yet, a video with the camera panning around the full view in every direction of all 3 cockpits. While I'm dreaming, just let us into the game so we can take a look for ourselves

Guys, the Scythe could still have the same sidebars. Maybe it is more of an internal roll cage/strengthening rib on the inside of the cockpit bubble.

Take the F-35 for example:


If you were to tint the glass darker you wouldn't even be able to see the rib.
