Yes imho, especially the view from aft should be much farther on all ships since [wiki]EscortDeck[/wiki] is available. All external views are set close to the ships without the deck so escorts are not fit into the default aft, top and bottom views.jh145 wrote:While we're talking about the FdL 3G, would it be worth changing the external views? Maybe pull the camera back from the ship a little?
My suggestion to the core is to bind the pgup and pgdown keys in external views to change the camera position closer and farther. Save the last setting into a missionVariable in multiplicatoin of the default cameraposition-shipposition distance of the current external view so if the player change his ship from an Adder to Andromeda then will see it in similar zoom. The min. distance should be the collisionRadius to do not go into the ship. The max. should not be infininte, maybe 10 collisionRadius.
