Coast Guard Hovercraft - Added Views. Additionnal views (defined by camera definitions in the aircraft.cfg file) for the "Coast Guard Hovercraft" package by Mitsuya Hamaguchi (FSXCGHVR.ZIP). Four cameras pointing at the aircraft, two chase views and two new inside views. Also included is a text file that contains the new camera definitions. By Marc Renaud.
0 - Make sure FSX is not running
1 - Make a copy of your aircraft.cfg file.
2 - Open the aircraft.cfg file.
3 - Open the camera definitions.txt file provided by me.
4 - Select and copy all the camera definitions.
5 - Paste the new camera definitions into the aircraft.cfg file. ( I suggest the bottom of the file ).
6 - Save the aircraft.cfg file.
7 - Start FSX, select the aircraft.
A FEW TIPS
1 - I strongly recommend the use of the mouse for "swinging" around ( panning ) most cameras.
Activation : SHIFT + O ( the letter O ).
Temporary fixation of the camera on something specific : SPACE BAR.
Deactivation : CRTL + SPACE BAR : brings the camera to its original position.
NOTE : the mouse is much more sensitive than a joystick's hat switch. So move it slowly.
2 - If you don't like one of the views I added, you can simply take it out of the cycle of views by setting the parameter
CycleHidden=NO to YES ( last line of any camera definition ===> Not true for MICROSOFT aircrafts : the line was not included but you can do it yourself and it will work ! ).
This way the definition remains in the file just in case you change your mind later.
- Please take note that I assume no responsability for any ( extremely improbable ) damages to your FSX installation or your computer. As always with donwloaded files, you use them at your own risks.
Thanks to Mitsuya Hamaguchi for this great model !
