Hi Frankie!

Yes, finally! Thanks a lot for that! Having the new view possibilities and the full screen no-hud cockpit and full screen FLIR really improves the situational awareness in this sim. And being able to quickly switch between views with the coolie hat is really nice. This is important as it makes the low resolution not being such a big impact as before. Great work!

Cheers,
Lars

I discovered a bug in
Mod#166. Air-to-air missile close proximity warning.



In Mod#166, I mistakenly commented off lines 4743, 4744 and 4749. This resulted in some mysterious and irritating random-sounding close proximity warning sound. The sound I later found out, was some drone's SkyFlash missile going off. So what I did was to UNcomment 4743, 4744 and 4749. So now the mysterious close proximity warning sound is gone. Also, enemy incoming Air-To-Air missile is working fine with this latest small improvement.

Attached below is the latest FLIGHT.EXE.

Until the next Tornado mod,
Frankie Kam

173.  Automatic cinematic pan in Tracking View
Mod: In Tracking View (F1), hit the "I" key to pan around the Tornado


This lends a nice cinematic touch to the Tornado external view. Hit F1 first. Then toggle the panning on and off with the "I" key. You can also hit Z, X, Shift+Z and Shift+X to further shift the panning along.

174.  Automatic cinematic pan in Drone View
Mod: In Drone View (F5), hit the "I" key to have an automatic view pan around the Tornado

I applied the code from the previous mod to the drones in Tornado. Optimised for split-screen view (F1, [ or ] keys) as well. Well, I got it to work. Now I can enjoy watching the Hind and Frogfoots go about their business of death with a cinematic like effect camera panning around the aircraft at a slow and relaxed rate. IMHO, it does make a difference to the visuals. One more mod closer to the the 200th mod target I've set myself. That would be nice to achieve.
