Cockpit instrument information

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I don't know if this has been suggested before (I'd be surprised if it hasn't).  Can the Devs implement an information pop-up when cockpit instruments are moused over?  It would be very helpful.

Obviously the mouse camera function would have to be disabled.

Check out this Channel  And the aircraft guides. They explain all the cockpit instruments.

I'm familiar with Requiem's excellent YouTube channel, but it isn't exactly convenient to refer to it whilst playing the sim, though.

Most cockpits are all the same so you’ll figure it out after a while.

Im sorry im a bit confused qas to what you actually want? Just tooltip telling you what the instrument is? 
as almost all the instruments are the same and have the same function?
(once you learn them once in one plane they are the same for most other planes of that Nation or language,
Its like in a Car the Speedo is always the same and the Tacho for RPM) 


Do you mean like if you mouse over Altimeter it just says "Altimeter or Altitude" 
Or Do you mean like a training only popup with Tips. 
So if you mouse over engine power instead of it just saying "Engine 1 Manifold Pressure"
It Says something like a tip? "You should be running at 1.3ata" 

After all the goal is to learn the planes like the real pilots did and they could not do that it was all memory.

With the difference that the real ones had training from qualified instructors and we, armchair pilots have a lot to learn from self-study.

It would also be helpful for when you fly a plane that you're not used to fly (how many of us non-Russians speak Russian?).

 

Have a nice day.

Try holding the Google Translate camera over the text on the instrument. It works!

By the way, would it also work for Russians trying to understand English?
