Hello there!

I'm new here, and I really like the game.

But I am wondering, why can I not fly my plane from the cockpit? It is a flying game after all.

Because there is no cockpit view, simple...
In engineering, could exist not-optimal solution, but ridiculus ones... never
In most cases, the right question is not "why?".  In most cases, the right question is "why not?".
A ridiculous decision is the madness of a moment. A ridiculous person is the madness of a life.

Ah well, I guess my little game failed.


 

I am actually a player from the NA region and I would be glad to present to the EU region my very own cockpit view mod!

The mod is available now. The mod only works for joystick. See the link for more info.

More or less because: http://forum.worldof...y-cockpit-view/

 

And it seems that you struggle with gunsight transparency.

True, the mod isn't perfect. I'm doing something in the game that it really wasn't designed for. But that doesn't mean I won't eventually solve the problem. 

In regards to that other thread you linked to:

I hardly expect the mod to quote unquote, "Save the game". I made the mod for my own personal preferences and decided it was good enough to share with other people that I know would have the same preferences that I do. Cockpit view isn't for everyone, my mod currently only works for joystick, but it's a heck of a lot of fun when you get the hang of it. Visibility isn't really hampered as much as you think because of the game's overlayed interface and the ability to snap camera to target. Cockpit view, I think, is superior to 3rd person mode in especially in close situations.

I fixed the foggy glass problem.

I should have a patch ready for the fix soon™.

My answer to this is: This game just a simple arcade game. It's not a simulation in any way nor it tries to be one, as flight mechanics (stall, climb, slide, etc.) are wrong to the principals of physics. 

 

P.S. Alas, just looked that the questioner has 10 battles on him so he can't even post to New Comers Section, which needs you to have 100 battles on your name. Oh the Logic in that!!!

:trollface:

Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit. Try reading the posts above.

TL;DR

My main account is on the NA server. I played my 10 battles to post in the newcomers section to tell the EU region about my mod. A moderator has kindly moved this topic to the modding section. 


My cockpit view mod worked for v1.9. My mod was broken by update 2.0. 
The game WOWP was an arcade-simulation hybrid where plane performances mostly accurate to historical notes. Planes felt like the were flying, especially with CP view. 

2.0 is now total arcade, and the point of a CP view is now questionable in my opinion. 

Just read this thread. http://forum.worldof...s-fly-the-same/
