Mig 29 invisible cockpit
« on: February 11, 2014, 01:55:47 pm »

Is it possible to make the cockpit invisible in the Mig 29 so that I retain the physics of being in the plane but have a field of view similar to the UFO? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I THINK there is a Sim Mode option in the Eng.cfg that does exactly that.

Hey, thanks for the reply.  You're going to have to hold my hand here as I'm an Outerra newb.  I'm looking in eng.cfg in Notepad and see all the config settings.  Any idea what I'm looking for?  Thanks.

Sorry, I misread your reply.  I see the sim_mode setting and am going to test it out now.

For anyone else that is attempting this, the sim_mode tweak above slows the frame rate.  A better solution is to alter the camera position in mig29.js to put the camera slightly in front of the nose of the jet.  Same effect with a much better outcome.

in mig29.js
this.set_fps_camera_pos({x:0.0,y:11,z:1.5});
