visible cockpit was created by archamedes
I dont know how much of the freespace editor you can work with or what limitations it has, however I would love the idea of having a visual cokpit instead of hud screens. One that you can pan around in using the mouse or something, complete with HSD screens, flashy lights etc... I think this would be a great improvement. At the moment I am not too keen with the internal view modes. They seem to be a bit abrupt and lock into place. you cant really pan around properly. it just feels like you are not actually in a ship but gliding along in a spacesuit and turn your head around to see no ship or cockpit details around you.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this matter. We have something in the pipeline - keep an eye out for an announcement (hopefully) soon.

My god I'm impressed. I mean i'm a hardcore BMS falcon and DCS A-10 gamer with track IR and Cougar Hotas Thrustmaster gear so any games with cool cokpits impress me.

Just don't get too excited, look at the date of the post and know that in the end it was "just" used for the cutscenes. Still, Tolwyn said they have something planned. Being a realist I think it's fair to assume it will not be this kind of fully 3D cockpit...but there are easier ways that still provide a cool experience. :)

That does look pretty impressive, doesn't it? I wonder what caused the cockpits to not make the final release, since the post indicates it was being planned?

They changed the game engine, that's why it is gone since those versions. iirc that is.

I would really like to read what exactly they changed. I was surprised to hear that the engine is changed so much that even the FSO editor is not compatible.

Before I thought the great and very consistent visuals are just a testimony to the modellers and textures artists working in concert, making sure that everything has the same quality. But now I guess there's more behind it. ^^
