Improving Button Placement and Spacing

Hello! This is my first post, so feel free to leave suggestions on how I can improve!

For this post, I would like to suggest a few ways on how button placement and spacing can be improved. This is because, since I have played Infinite Flight, I personally have had a problem with accidentally clicking a different button than intended. This especially true when using an aircraft with the autoland feature. I will be going to change my heading, and suddenly my aircraft will either point to the sky like a rocket ship or will make a 90 degree turn while plummeting to the ground.

So I have two suggestions on how to fix this problem…

  1. Make the buttons slightly wider and longer.
    -Less likely to tap the wrong button
    -Will fix the problem of buttons being too
    small on larger devices

  2. (For autoland) Move the autoland button over
    the throttle.
    -Make it less likely to accidentally tap
    autoland while changing heading

I would also like to direct you to a great post that introduced a new idea for button placement in cockpit view.

New Cockpit UI Idea

So, that’s my idea for fixing this problem. Let me know if any of you have accidentally tapped the wrong button before and feel free to suggest new ideas
for button placement in the comments down below. Hope you enjoyed!
