Just a suggestion I had, a smoothtransition to gunsite, normal, and wideview like leaning forward or back instead of just going to each view, more but quicker increments automatically to simulate a lean.

Also a lean left and right to look past canopy bars instead of having to turn the plane and create drag

Also in the future I hope you plan to add radiator + - "2 keys"

Along with + - with Gunsite, Normal and wide "2 key cycle"

Less keys on the joystick are a good thing.

There is an option to increase or decreas your FOV, just look it up in the controls descriprion. It goes in steps of 10%.

Anyways, people nowadays want everything on a slider http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

ye shall be judged: and with what

yes Im familiar with all commands of FB java, the FOV views are not practical in fighting because of the increments. even when having the middle button as normal then left button fov + and far right button fov -

What im saying is the 3 main views

Gunsite
Normal
Wide

when switching to each of the above a automated FOV transition so pressing from wide to gunsite it would go thru all the increments very quick and smoothly simulating a lean forward and backward rather then an instant view. It has to be very smooth and quick for it to be practical.

Zooming is not a feature of human vision.

Focusing attention is a human pilot feature, and Zooming in can be considered an approximation of pilot focusing attention on one small area. However, that change of focus is instant and not continous.

Umm....but then again Lead has a good point about controlling the focus. I guess my whining is because flight sim developers have a nasty habit of making their pan views very slow (Flanker).

Okay, I remember now, the Flanker Zoom was continous but VERY slow. I can't deal with this, so if its not very fast, leave it alone. I HATE that Flanker Zoom, you wait and wait for view to Zoom in. I got it now Lead!
