In this little tutorial i will cover a topic that has been brought up many times lately. And it's the proper way to set
up the right in Cockpit position in IL-2 BoS.
1º The standard Cockpit position in BoS is perfectly aligned with the Gunsight, this is done so everybody can aim,
it doesn't matter if you have Head tracking or not, this way new comers with no Head tracking can jump in any
and start flying and fighting.
2º For Head tracking users it seems odd, in some planes the head position seems to be too low, too high, too to the left, etc
also in some Planes this default view Position makes some blind spots at 6, mostly notices in the FW-190 where the armored
head rest obstruct the 6 o'clock view.
3º So now i will tell you how to set up your view position properly.
_Controls: Del: moves your head position to the left.
End: Moves your head position to the right
Insert: zoom in
End: zoom out
Page up: moves your head position up
Page down: moves your head position down
F10: saves your actual head position
_ First of all launch the game with your head tracking off (if head tracking is on you will not be able to change the pilot's head position)
_ What you want to achieve is a proper pilot head position in cockpit, for that you have to simply go F2, rotate the camera and properly
set it (shift+mouse) in the best position to see the pilot position in cockpit. here are 2 examples.
the pilot head position right between the two bumps over the nose cowling.
With the insert and home keys we will adjust the distance from the gunsight and instruments panel, as we see in the 190 the pilot is very close to the gunsight and instruments panel, we will get this
