S! Oleg,

As either part of FB's upgrade cycle, or for the next sim, please consider adding an indicator that shows whether or not you are currently recording an online track. I think a little camera icon with a green square (for recording off) that changes to a red circle (for recording on) next to it would work well placed in the upper right hand corner by the ping bars.

Thank you for your consideration.

(Apologies to all if this has already been asked for.)

indeed...


As well as other enhancements when viewing tracks. It may be nice to use fixed outside view with trails behind planes, for ACM and combat analyzing purposes. Something that Aces High has and is a very good tool.

A recording indicator would be a great implementation.
As would the abilty to switch off icons on track playback and view from all aircraft cockpits (F1 on what ever aircraft you are viewing)...

Don't think that this is possible. Several reasons:
* AI only aircraft don't have a cockpit at all.
* Aircraft controlled by AI have a simplified flight model. Even if they have a cockpit, there might be not enough data available to make the gauges and controls work correctly in the replay. (?)
* In multiplayer mode only a very limited amount of information about the remote aircraft is transferred to your computer. Again not enough for the gauges and controls, I guess.
