Is there a cockpit view
Because i can't really be immersed in a Space Sim, if im sitting 50m behind my ship floating in space :/ It's something alot of reacent Space Sim games don't have, and was my first reason why i pledged for Star Citizen if you heard about it. When i saw the interactive, amazing looking cockpits. I was sold.

No. This game is more about ship building and how you use it in space (where you place your guns and which must shoot on different angles etc.). Don't compare this with Star Citizen. I mean, give these devs about 30m $ and then you can comapare.

Adding a cockpit view isn't very hard from a programming standpoint. All it requires is one more model and a camera move. I would be surprised if it wasn't put into the final game, but it's so trivial in game development that they may have just put it aside. Possibly if this or a similar thread gets popular enough, it'll become a larger priority.

Space engineers already has a cockpit view, i don't see why this game can't

Space Engineers does not support Linux or Mac. This not that type of game. You really can not compare the two games. Both have their own merrit. Seeing how this is their first game they ever made it and it is already awesome.

A) Yes, we're not Star Citizen
B) Yes, I would love to have the kind of financial backing they have
C) No, we don't have cockpit view at this time, but have discussed having it closer to launch (as it's primarily cosmetic, not based on function, it's taken a back burner).

That is all.

A) Your game is playable, SC you get to walk around in a hanger and look at prebuilt ships
B) Dont we all... dont we all....
C) While I will agree with you that it can be cosmetric, it can still be functional. Dog fights are easy fought in first person view "Cockpit View," well for me it is.

Then again, I'm the person who can't play Silent Hill on firstperson because I get too scared...my opinion is skewed.

I wasn't comparing it to SC guys :I Well atleast that wasn't my intention xD
I just ment how most recent Space Sims game didn't have or plan to have a cockpit view, and when i saw SC had one.. well that was what really got me interested in it. If SC didn't have a cockpit view, i probably would have skipped it.

I don't know much about this game yet honestly, or how big the development team and budgett is. So im not going to compare it to SC for obvius reasons, neither do i demand certain features such as a cockpit view.

I was just interested to know from people who have the game or tried it, if there was a cocpit view or maybe if it would be added later on in development. So i could make a better judgment if this game suits my taste :)

There is not a cockpit view in this game per say, but when you first get in to space there is kinda first person like view to it. If you dont want to loose the view avoid changing the view, might be hard to go back to it..

I would like to see a cockpit view in the final game if its feasible for u guys , i find combat and precision flying can benefit from this view ,

Although i would expect to be flying a small ship with a cockpit at the start . I think most of us will be building and flying bigger ships fairly quickly , so it would be a bridge view and with the addition of many more weapons on turrets i would expect combat would be fougth using the 3rd person perspective . Still be nice to have a Bridge view .
