Which view do you use?

You do realize that the cockpits you're looking at are meant to be low detail and viewed only from the outside, right? That's why they look so ugly and low-poly up close?
If you want your bugs fixed and features added, you gotta get us coders! See the help wanted thread if you want to help out!

Will keep away from the cockpits for a while. Atleast until the final version comes out. No need to "kill" your game with bad cockpits (no offense meant to the BtRL crew).

No offence taken. The fact that we don't have any high poly cockpits yet is the main reason why we didn't give people the option to turn cockpits on. :)

Even a high poly, beautiful cockpit is ugly if it takes to much place on the screen ;)

Without offense, I see the low poly cockpits in the demo as "proof of concept" so i don't care if they are ugly or not.
But in this concept the eyepoint is too low and the cockpit takes too much room on the screen.

^good cockpit, compared to the SCP's obstructive view based on the fs1 cutscene. look at the fact the lt. ash's eyes are 3 ft. aboce the HUD panel, and if your not a fs fan, look at the inner cockpits of vipers. control panels are not infront of the eyes, but atleast 1 foot below. the pilot can see a large area infront of his ship.even the EA starfurys in babylon 5 share that same basic trait.
