My question is, why are some aircraft's canopies open, whilst others aren't? It's something that has bugged me greatly ever since getting PF and subsequently FB/AEP. Only Pacific planes can, however the P-40B/C is able to, which is an Air Force aircraft. I guess there's no point with most aircraft because there was no point to having them open, but it makes for some really great screenshot art possibilities.

There's only one thing cooler than a Kittyhawk, and that's a Kittyhawk with its canopy open.

Its a feature introduced in PF, so all older planes from FB and ACES dont have this feature working. Would probably cost 1C too much time to get all models up to that standard. And its better if they focus on more important matters.
So, thats the story basically. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Don't see how putting an extra lind of coding would cost much.

Is it that important? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But its a lot more work than a few lines. They have to create the animations for the opening, which is a lot of work when you have to do that for some 100/150 planes?

As far as I can see, its a nice touch, looks cool. But is not that much of a revolution that changes the game.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif And its nice for the carrierplanes because they also allow you to change the seatposition.

Years back when I switched from CFS2 to FB (Oh happy day!), I spent ages scratching my head trying to figure out how to open the canopies http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif. When I enquired on this forum I was absolutley floored to find that this feature was not included. One guy even gave me a bit of a telling off for even suggesting such a thing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif.
