Side view panels

Post by Butch » 19 May 2019, 15:59

Would like to know if it is planned for the cockpit side panels to open/close in the future as in the closed position
they blind the side views to any possible air traffic.

Hi Butch, welcome to the forum!

In some of the first versions of the Vega (pre-release!) I originally had those panels functional. Those are access panels to the wings, you can see the inside here:

I had the wing root modeled in 3d, you could actually see the ribs of the wooden construction of the wing. Ultimately I decided to remove that option for the sake of performance, since it served no function. The doors are still animated though, they rattle if the engine runs a bit rough.

And about the visibility: you may complain about this, but believe it or not, the Vega was actually a vast improvement on visibility compared to previous aircraft types! :lol:
