If theres a better modelled cockpit in any sim than the J8A(Finnish Gladiator)in Il2/FB/PF I havent seen it!!!If it werent for the upper wing obscuring vision and the peashooter armament I might never fly another plane....!(wiser community members than me have reccomended novices cutting their teeth on this plane and 1Vs1 with a suitable similar opponent its as good as it gets !!!If you get just the right spot on the instrument panel in a magnified image you can almost see the dust!!!Any other REALLY good sim 'pits(the new Rowans rehash BOB cockpit screenshots sure look promising.....but so did the externals(Bf109s parked on showroom mirrored floors!) and then they released that horrid video....

MiG-3 has the best modded - most high Quality - cockpit in the sim.

You see, MiG-3, along with F~106, are my Fave planes of all time. That's the computer game "detail" I see when in the cockpit. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I think the I-185 is the best. The J8 is fantastic but it looks a little on the cartoony side. The I-185 looks like a real airplane cockpit.

Gotta disagree, The J6 is the best, by far.
In my opinion. It's unparalleled...

The best ingame are the J8, I-185, Bf110, Ki-61, Ki-100, and Ki-84.

The Bf-110 is the best, just look at all the details http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif , and in the P-38 Lightning cockpit the bullet hits doesn't show up, why?... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

WHAT??? Sorry, I know this is subjective, but I count Mig-3 cockpit as one of the most worst. Beside P-47, P.11 and that most crappy G.50 pit. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Best cockpits are J8 (still) and I-185 (although I don't like baking/faking), then Ta-152, Fw190s, Ki-100, -84, -61, Bf110. And I also like F4F.

Oh and I have already new favorites that will come, but I don't tell you... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

For people who never could PC sim a prop MiG before, Oleg's MiG cockpit is a breath of fresh air. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Its funny though. Look outside the I-185 or J8 "state of the art" cockpit and you see a previous generation or two of olde environment grafix--just outside the cockpit! I know the New Cockpits are modder practice for BoB and Beyond, so I am not Whining about Fancy Cockpit -- creating BoB+ is such a huge advance that BoB Fancy Cockpit and New FM naturally begin experimentally in FB/PF.

I also know that Fancy Cockpit does not make me fly I-185 or J8 more than MiG-3 1940/1941. This is related to the olde debate between purely eyecandy grafix and programming real gaming content.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif One thing I do ~love~ though, is the cockpit lighting in Fiat CR.42. If any of you have not tried Fiat CR.42 at sunset or night with the cockpit lights on, do it now. I still fly MiG more than Fiat though. Fancy Cockpit has not change that either.
