"Up" view?

posted May 04, 2013 18:17:14 by ErikBergman
Would love to use a projector to simulate a skylight above the bridge. Is there a way to get a point of view up perspective on a second view screen?

While editing the .ini may get you an 'up' view, the only way I know of to view it would be as a 'Main Screen' terminal, but changing the view applies to all the view screens.

I had wanted to try setting up a left and right viewport to simulate windows, but ran into the issue of not being able to control the views independently.

I suppose editing the .ini on the console that you want to display the skylight view so the 'forward' view is really 'up', but I don't know if the version check compares the .ini files.


ETA:
Just ran through the .ini files and while there are settings to change the camera zoom and position, I don't immediately see a setting for orientation.

It would be pretty neat if we could get the same support that most flight sims have for visual output, IE the ability to place multiple monitors and designate which view is which.

Would love to do view ports. What about using an observer? On Star Trek they could do a rear view. :p

I know the observer station cycles through more 'cinematic' views of the ship(s), but might there be a way to lock down a particular view?
I'll suggest that ability over in the Suggestions for Version 2.0 thread.
