When I am out of cockpit mode (CTRL F1) The reticle is jumping around. What is causing this? also the plane is bouncing around alot like there is a lot of turbulance. Why is it doing that?

The floating reticle is explained in the Pacific Fighters 3.0 Read Me file:



"In order to make it easier to learn, we've included a non-historical helper feature that may be useful for people who otherwise find it difficult to land on the carrier.

If you turn off the 3D cockpit (Shift-F1 by default, with "No Cockpit" set to On in the Difficulty section), you will see an extra reticle floating around the virtual cockpit. When landing, try to keep decreasing your airspeed, and keep the reticle on the centerline of the carrier deck, at about 1/5th of the total length away from the stern. In other words, this reticle shows you the direction of your speed vector, and the landing angle should be about twice as shallow as when landing on a land strip."


The bouncing around is probably due to weather turbulence which occurs in some missions.

You might want to check your trim (how far off center are you holding your joystick?) and not try to correct quickly
(don't 'fly the needle') as those make PIO (pilot induced oscillation). Being out of trim makes it much harder to
keep stable.
