Forward View - No Cockpit

Those did not seem to have any effect.

Not sure if anyone’s tried, but you might be able to create a Custom Camera and then edit the file to place you further forward beyond the windscreen.

If you create a custom camera (ctrl / alt / 0)

Then take a look in the aircraft folder created here …

C:\Users"Your ID"\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\SimObjects

You can alter the InitialXyz at the bottom of the camera.cfg definition file.

It works!

I added 1 to the 3rd number against InitialXyz and selected my custom cam in the sim (ctrl / 0) and moved forward beyond the instruments, still behind the prop (c172). A clear view.

Thanks for your efforts.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the “8weky…” folder anywhere on my drive…

So long as you can find \Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_[any random text], you’ve found the correct folder to click. It won’t be named the same as it was for the poster above.

I don‘t, although I saved a custom camera.
What am I doing wrong?

Video is privat, unable to watch it…

I think it is the same name for everyone, I don’t think it is random. If you google the folder name, you’ll find this folder name everywhere on the web with nothing to do with me.
