Hi all, now I haven’t had x plane that long and haven’t really scratched the surface if I’m honest. I can do the startups and merrily fly around using my skydemon app with the default planes (I’ve spent Hours in the cessna and King Air)
Now the reason for this thread is I know for sure that I’m missing out things. For instance in another thread we discussed the purchase of a helicopter and I said I was neglecting XP over DCS at the moment. So today I thought I’d fire it up and set up my new equipment and see the difference.
It updated and I saw the notes for the B52g and the KC10 Extender… THE WHAT?!
KC10 is one of my favourite aircraft. I had no idea that it was in the sim whatsoever… Now after some button smashing I found that the XP10 versions of some aircraft were available to use. They appear to have no 3d cockpits but still seems fairly functional.
Now one thing I cannot work out for the life of me is how to look around or zoom in the 2d cockpit. I can’t see any gauges or any way of changing the fixed view I had except moving to a 3d view that makes the cockpit disappear and only the rims of the windows show.
Could anyone help me set this up or tell me what I’m doing wrong please?
Also as the name of the thread suggests any other hints or tips to get my moneys worth would be fantastic as I really haven’t played around with XP11 and now I’m sure I’m missing things that could really open up the thing to me.
I must say after playing DCS solely for a few months it really is a struggle to get oriented with XP and it really does feel clunky in comparison.
I’m going to stick with it but would really appreciate the help. No wrong answers and anything accepted.
Light, heavy, jet and helicopter tips please or just anything you can think of.
