Hello friends;

Maybe my little suggestion is a big "bul****" for some people, but i will very happy if, whyle flying my P-47, i can open my canopy in flight to 'get some air' or smoke a cigarette (eheeeheheh). I hope the developers can give a little attention to my subject.

Thanks

this has been discussed some times before

i would also love it, but unfortunately that would require some major changes in the code and IIRC all a/c models would have to be redone...

maybe in the next sim... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

bump La, LaGG and MiG pilots often had their canopy opened for better view. And it would just be c00l. I-16s even had the canopy removed. Yeah, it had a canopy initially /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif . At least that's what I read some days ago.

Another usefull change would be how to bail out. Press Ctrl+E...

...first time to drop canopy
...sencond time to actually bail out
...third time to open chute

/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif - c'mon, this isn't much work /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif . This would give the chute shooters a hard time /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

if you have the canopy open make sure you put a large fan on top of the monitor pointing at your face to simulate the wind.

if it is rainy have your wife or girl friend throw water at you randomly during the flight

this will ensure maximum realism

For the 56th time -

Oleg has said that the option to open canopies in flight will be included in The Next Sim. (The Med?!)
