Description

Obs
In a1/a2/OA the driver/pilot has no cursor in any vehicle.

This makes it next to impossible to assign targets with the mouse
(via head movement via alt + mouse), as you cannot see where your
view is pointed/centered at.

Some choppers now have somewhat one with the HUD; but as it is
not their actual design, it does not work well.

Exp
A simple tiny dot would be enough.
It should be gone when the cursor is disabled.

See the attached videos for visual presentation of the issue.

History

Updated by kotov over 3 years ago

What about add function lets say FIRE MODE and when pilot or gunner activate it mark (tiny dot) will appear on screen and will allow you lock target or may be lock on coordinates where gunner want to send missile or bomb and moving that will not change direction of moving aircraft(like freelook mod -*)

The solution in 89025 is insufficient. The cursor moves only in one dimension and doesn't allow commanding of troops.
