In the original Battlefield 1942 the nosecams had nothing but crosshairs... In FH2 could you make the nosecam like a realistic guncam... You could take the the Black and White TV missile screen from Battlefield 2 and remove the target crosshairs and border to make it look like a realistic guncam... Could this be applied to all Aircraft for the sake of realism!?
the gun camera footage that you just saw on the history channel which gave you this idea that made you come over to the forums and start this thread was something that the pilot saw _After_ his mission. therefore, adding a guncam ambiance to the nosecam view would be no more realistic.
Well no shit... Im not even watching history... But in real life they didnt have nosecam either, thats more unrealstic than guncam... so why not add the feel of watching a guncam instead of giving them a crisp clear image that pilots never had... haveing a guncam ambience in place of the old nosecam would add a sense of more realistc gameplay Not to mention the video footage people can capture with FRAPS...
heehaw, well no shit, "no shit", why did you say it would make it more realistic in the first place if its "no shit"?
Yes, it will make it more realistic, more realistic than a stupid nosecam.... that is why I said it would be MORE realistic... If you want my oppinion, which isnt in favor of everone else, I would say F*CK NOSECAM, and cockpit only...
Hmmmm cockpit only... Thats a great idea, devs?
Really a guncam wouldn't. It'd be more akin to those grainy bomber views we watch on CNN or TV guided missles. In otherwords making the view more synthetic would not make it more realistic.
But to hijack a little, what if there was a WWII cam mode with grainy black and white view instead of color? Well it would be completley worthless but stil...
I have seen the movie 'Flag of our Fathers' very recently, love the cockpit views from the Corsair, could watch a whole lot more of that!!
That's what nose cam should look like in FH2 (only more pressed nose up against the front window)
My original thought was Cockpit only, but I thought everyone would be pissed... so I just said make the nosecam an authentic guncam... If you guys want cockpit only, Im with ya on that 100%
And Frederfs idea is a good alternative to nosecam is good, a view zoomed on the sights within the cockpit... Its perfect!!!
