I love this new update. The 18.6 update is by far my favorite update in the year 2018. Probably my third favorite update of Infinite Flight history (behind the introduction of Live and Global). Since the update, I’ve enjoyed flying the B737 more and more. This plane is much more fun and realistic to fly and I can’t stop flying them, especially for Southwest Virtual.
I also couldn’t find any duplicates or any reports of this little bug.
Since the update, I’ve been flying more and more on the B737 and I’ve come across this one problem. This problem occurred when I would be on my takeoff roll or after touching down on landing and rolling down the runway. This problem occurred on the wing view. The problem is illustrated in the picture below.
As you can see from this picture, I am on the wing view and facing forward. You can also notice that I am on the runway. This was when I was landing and released reverse thrust. I have noticed that after throttling up, my camera over the wing glitched from facing to the wing to facing the front of the plane when I didn’t even lay my hand on the screen to move the camera, just the throttle to control the engine power.
This problem doesn’t stay forever. When I actually leave the ground and become airborne, the camera view automatically turns back to facing the wing. The camera also automatically turns back to facing the wing after I am at a slow enough speed (around 40 knots ground speed).
NOW, you could say I could just use my finger to turn the camera back, but whenever I do try to do so, the camera barely budges. So basically, I’m stuck in that position until after I become airborne or I have slowed down to around 40kts.
I always like to take a quick peek at the wing while on takeoff roll or after landing to look at the spoilers and downed flaps. This bug is preventing me from doing so.
Yes, every time I fly a plane from the B737 family, it happens. I don’t know about other planes because I’ve been flying nothing but the B737 since the update.
To replicate it on takeoff:
- Spawn anywhere in a plane from the B737 family.
- Taxi to the runway and begin your takeoff roll
- After gaining some speed, you will notice that the camera will automatically switch to facing the front of the airplane rather than the wing of the airplane.
To replicate it on landing:
- Touchdown on a runway (maybe butter it XD)
- Apply reverse thrust
- You will notice that the camera will automatically switch to facing the front of the airplane rather than the wing of the airplane.
I think this is a very annoying bug as I like to take a quick glimpse of the wing on takeoff and on landing. I don’t know. I like to observe the flaps and spoilers (on landings) XD
I don’t know if you guys can also replicate it or if this is just a problem on my end. I also don’t think restarting or deleting the app and then reinstalling it would do anything either.
Please tell me on how to fix this issue.
