6DOF A-10 mod (Un-do please?)

Is this blasphemy in a flight sim forum?

Regardless, it is beyond me why someone chose to include 6DOF in the Sim-Mod A-10 mod for FC2. Ok, I know everyone likes 6DOF (except me I guess lol) But serously! Don't add a feature to a mod it has nothing to do with!

 

I have every intention of digging through these forums and my lockon directory to figure out how to change it back to the default values, but if anyone would be so kind as to point this very annoyed individual at the correct locations, that would be much appreciated.

 

Oh, you might wish to know why I don't want 6DOF? I'm sure once you people got over your 6DOF-gasm you realized that the current lockon pits aren't quite as 3D as they should be. Ya, sorry, but those glitches and parallax issues kill it for me. Plus, there is no way in hell any pilot should be able to move around like that while strapped into the seat. You'd have to be some kind of contortionist to be able to stick your head down next to the stick (which isn't completely modeled on the back by the way? Have you checked that out?) not to mention doing so while pulling high Gs.

Until ED either makes nice 3D pits for us or releases the tools to do it ourselves, no full 6DOF for me, please.

 

So, am I blowing this out of proportion? Yes, probably. However, I think it's a fair request to at least make regular and 6DOF versions of the A-10 mod. There are reasons all-in-one mods aren't that popular. People like to tweak things they way they like. You're not leaving us options.

 

So, if you have the info on how to change it back please post it if you can before I go digging for the information. However, this is more just a post about my opinion on the 6DOF matter.

 

Now let the haters in... :music_whistling:

Check out Config\Input\View\server.lua

 

The original will have a section looking like that :

 

--local old_aircrafts_6DOF = {x = {-2,2},y = {-2,2},z = {-2,2},roll = 90.0} -- {x = {0,0},y = {0,0},z = {0,0},roll = 0}
local old_aircrafts_6DOF = {x = {-0.02,0.05},y = {-0.03,0.03},z = {-0.03,0.03},roll = 90.0}
limits_6DOF = {}
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iSu_27] = old_aircrafts_6DOF
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iSu_33] = old_aircrafts_6DOF
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iSu_25] = old_aircrafts_6DOF
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iSu_39] = old_aircrafts_6DOF
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iMiG_29] = old_aircrafts_6DOF
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iMiG_29K] = old_aircrafts_6DOF
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iA_10] = old_aircrafts_6DOF
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iF_15] = old_aircrafts_6DOF
limits_6DOF[PlaneIndex.iKA_50] = {x = {-0.02,0.35},y = {-0.15,0.21},z = {-0.26,0.26},roll = 90.0}

 

Change the values back to old_aircrafts_6DOF to revert any 6DOF mod ;)

Yup, figured it out. Thanks!

@Aeroscout: I agree with you completely... this whole 6DOF has been blown out of proportion with crazy settings, that not only bring a hell of alot of artifacts, but also are completely unrealistic..

 

Please try my "toned down" 6DOF mod which uses only slightly expanded views as compared to default...

You might find it the best balance...

Doesn't seem to affect my machine, I don't have artifacting or unsightly issues.. :thumbup:
