Thread: Cockpit features

  1. #11
    don't think there's a carburetor in any of the featured helicopters because they're all turbine.

    The Helo Cockpit disappears/reappears on me several time a minute.

    Another thing is that in-cockpit rotor shadow flickering at full RRPM (Rotor RPM). In real, at full RRPM you would not be able to see the shadow created by your rotorblades. In my opinion it's actually quite annoying. Rotor shadows at low RRPM would be OK.

    I would suggest removing main rotor shadow over a certain RRPM.

    While on the subject, as developers you have the responsibility to reduce the chance of Video game-induced seizures (VGS). Various forms of monitor flicker is what is thought to trigger such seizures.

    -and the helo cockpit disappears/reappears frequently for me as well (GTX570 SOC).

    In the latest version, the shadows are no longer drawn when the blades are spinning at full throttle.

    As for the cockpit disappearing, I've only encountered that when my frame rate dipped below 20-15 fps, and not for a good few weeks, but we'll take a look.

    Arma 3 is a combined arms military game with an infantry focus. Built upon appropriate, useful and engaging elements of simulation, it's an accessible platform for a variety of official and community playable/sandbox content, based on the principles of authenticity, diversity and opportunity.

    @ RiE
    My rig is not the fastest one. My framerate is between 15-20 so you're most likely on to something there.
    Thank you for the reply

    I have the same. Usually pretty low FPS and have the cockpit disappearing shortly every few minutes or so.

    Hope I'm not highjacking the thread, only one I could see pertaining to the cockpit at first glance
    I've seen this too. Quite a few times.

    As I mentioned above, it happens to me but it doesn't seem to matter what my frame rates have been (when I have been able to play which hasn't been for a few days ). In comparison with Arma 2 or, Arrowhead or Combined OPs, the cockpit for any vehicle or helo/airplane has NEVER disappeared on me.

    Computer Specs as follows:

    Intel Q6600 oc 3.2ghz
    6gb ram
    nVidia 580 GTX
    Win 7 64bit
    1920x1080 LG
    nForce 680i LT SLI mobo
    650w Gaming PSU

    Latest Drivers and updates for everything as well.

    well spotted, not saying carb heat on features ones but as nobody start on turbine, we ll have to bring r22 47g s300 , I meant more action onto the cockpit that have direct effect to the flight will be nice , like not defrosting the pitot or not switching the gen or apu ... could affect the flight for example
    not much here on the featured ones, an ELT to switch on , a transponder to ident will give nice possibilities in game as well as the ability to set the altimeter to zero ( ie: for some building top sling ops) ...etc..

    I vote for more interaction with the cockpit as flying is not only to push a cyclic. imo.
    .. I forgot an inside cockpit light too
