Snapview . svc file EXACTLY FOV calculation

Recommended Posts

As you may know...

 

under: IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\LuaScripts\snapviews

 

in the

 

"Plane X".svc files

 

in the first LINE

 

[snap]

cvc = 0.000, 0.000,                0.000, 0.000, 0.000,                -0.000;

 

The last number (in red) determines the FOV value in the cockpit view.

 

Now, how do i extract the right value for exactly let´s say 80FOV?

-1.000 = 150°

0.000 = 60°

1.000 = 30°

 

So you basically have to create a curve diagram and extrapolate the value from that.

So based on that, 80° FOV is around -0.280.

That graph is a good contribution.

 

I had the need for this sort of thing a while ago when I was trying to make my default DCS field of view exactly like my chosen default Il-2/RoF field of view.  I ended up measuring the gunsight of a Bf-109 with a ruler pressed against the screen in Il-2, and then zooming in and out and saving until it was exactly the same in DCS K4.  In DCS, the equivalent snapview entry is in degrees FOV and you could read it off directly from the LUA file.

That was also my idea :)
