[How to] remove/modify the view limits

Hello modders,

 

To make some very specific screenshots of panels for Cockpit++ I need to move the camera in front of panels, but I'm facing a problem of view limits in translations.

 

I tried to modify values (limits_6DOF) in DCS World 2 OpenAlpha\Mods\aircraft\**module**\Views.lua, but it's not working

 

Any ideas?

Hello guys,

 

Thanks to Cpt Stark on a french forum (his post here: http://www.checksix-forums.com/viewtopic.php?p=1607437#p1607437 ) I have a solution to make screens about all panels without any view restriction.

 

I'm pretty sure the solution could interest other people, so here it is in english:

 

You can "navigate" in the cockpit using the "ModelViewer" of DCS

 

File ModelViewer.exe in the \bin folder of your DCS World

 

When you are in the program, load the file (load model) corresponding to the Mirage's cockpit "M-2000C-CPT.edm"

localized here: \Mods\aircraft\M-2000C\Shapes

 

To change the view:

Hold the right click = rotate

Hold the left click = zoom

Hold the left click + SHIFT = translations

 

You can also add effects (light/rain) the source' position

 

You have 2 view mods

- cockpit (player's view in game)

- object (3D view of the cockpit from oustide)

 

Bonus, if you know the arguments for buttons/lights, you can switch them

But I'm confused a little bit.

 

You want to position the cam and take screen shots, right?

I don't think that the quote will be best for you.

 

You'll see a cockpit with no electricity and no working devices, and you'll see a sea-blue at outside.

I hope it will be OK for you.

 

Oh, I advice that set the MSA max for smooth edges.

Yes, I wanted to make ingame screenshots to get shadows and lights, but you can manage them in ModelViewer, so I have something very close :smilewink:

Good point, thank you :thumbup:
