It would be nice to have this toggle in the map and mini map settings. Most MFDs and/or EFIS have both layouts, this would just add the heading view to our maps.
I am aware that there is always a trade-off between how much drawing code versus supporting older devices, so if this needs to wait on more Project Metal progress that’s very understandable.
There are a few topics related to this:
Have you ever closely noticed the ND (navigation display) in an aircraft cockpit? If so, you’ll realize that the the way the aircraft icon follows the flight plan is different to how the aircraft icon in IF follows the flight plan.
In IF, you have a map with your flight plan which is fixed, and the aircraft simply follows the fixed flight plan by turning and following the flight plan lines or ‘legs’.
In real life navigation displays, it’s the opposite. The aircraft icon is fixed…
Hi guys! Hope it’s not a duplicate !
I am wondering if we could have an option in the minimap that can makes the plane heading to the top as the bottom Shows plane and the top airports/wpt/fpl right in front. It would be nice to see the map moving with our heading change. Just like a radar (and the two sorts of external aircraft view options (locked from airplane angle or from camera heading angle)
Good idea? Let’s drop your vote :)
Instead of having a north locked, map, I would like to have an option that lets the aircraft be what locks the map orientation, essentially whatever way you are pointed is pointing virtually north. Lots of cars have this, and it makes navigating much easier.
So it’s definitely a much-requested feature. The other topics are older, but unless you can ask a moderator to get them closed or consolidate them into one topic, I’m afraid this counts as a duplicate.
Interesting. I only looked under the user interface tag. All of these are untagged. Looks like a good opportunity to consolidate all of those and mine.
@Drummer would consolidating those prior feature requests make sense? I think they all have zero or perhaps one vote at most…
Request will need to remain separate
