hehe m8 i was wondering the same thing but you can set it to closer if you want

its in ur conf.ini in the FB folder
look up this line

under [HookView Config]
DefaultLen=20.0 change this to 15 or 10 so the view is closer

BUMP!!

Why did it change?? It was superb in both Il-2 and FB.

PS: That DefaultLen Setting doesn't change anything. I've set it to 10 already, but it's still the same.

Its still small of a difference I've wondered why there have been at least 5 threads about this very topic. If you want a closer look use the Mouse and zoom in. I do http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I wouldn't want to zoom every time... the view is just not good right now. I wide view, the planes appear really tiny now. As I first tried the Spit I thought "Damn what the hell is that a ****ing small airplane", but then I noticed the camera is farther away by default.

Quite OT, but I also dislike this point in LOMAC... There you're zoomed up that much, that half of the plane fills up the whole screen so that you *have to* zoom out every time... that just sucks. It's just better programmed when the user has to do 3 klicks less to get optimal results. Let's call this intuitive view control http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif. There are other things that need several klicks and button presses, like CEM. Views should go as easy as possilbe and the default distance of the camera in external views was just right in the past 2+ years of Il-2. I can't see any reason to change it now. Maybe it changed accidently, so it's worth mentioning it.

It's probably because of the Fw-200.

If the effort of zooming in is too much, I don't know what to say... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Is it perhaps possible to change something in the ini files to get again the good old views?

Agree, posted similar topic, but no answer from Oleg, view stinks now, maybe it was changed by someone who doesnt like to bath.

I also raised the issue of this problem, but no response on if it would be fixed by Oleg.

Seriously, whoever messed with external view in AEP has serious estetic and hygiene problems. Presing the outside view button on my x45 now causes unbelivable smell of decaying corpse.
