    Heard this mentioned during the latest DTG stream and got me thinking. Seeing scenery flash by in the side windows does add to the sense of movement and immersion. hstcab.jpg

    So you want a field of view slider?

    Or similar? Yes. Same as the external cameras. A button to toggle driving and camera control in the cab view too? Keyboard users could do this with a toggle key? Or have better range on the mouse wheel. It would be a missed opportunity to have this feature but continue to have no zoom option on console, I suppose if it was easier getting the mouse to work on all platforms then all it would require is a mousewheel.

    I think this is even more relevant now with the cab sway feature.

    Sometimes I play across two of my screens, but it really needs a change in FOV to look correct. So I'm definitely in favour of more flexible camera settings.

    Knocked all safety systems off got up of my seat and crouched slightly behind it with the HST and then a Dosto running round the elevated curves on msb. Was fantastic.

    Look the AI has the right idea, about here or there about. :)

    But joking aside a wider field of view* would I think add to the immersion. In the racing sim I use I set the internal view to what I'd normally see when just moving my eyes but not my head. It adds to the feeling of being in a car and allows for a greater sense of your surroundings. A similar view in TSW would be great with the controller taking over further "head" movement. Although we'd really need that mouse zoom functionality on console then.

    * Preferably a slider to suit everyone.
