Cockpit camera suggestions
I really enjoy the cockpit view of this game. it is really an awesome feel to see how your vechicles are traveling around.

I would like to make some Cockpit camera suggestions to the developers for future updates.

While in cockpit view
- it would be nice if we use the mouse to turn the camera from left to right in a 270 degree radius
- it would be cool to have more camera viewa available like
- front view (what we have now)
- driver's seat view from interior
- passenger seat view (back seats of cars, vuss passesnger seats, train passenger seats)
- over vwhicle view ( so we can see like from standing on the vehicle)
- outside view from left or right ( let's say we look from the wheels)

Passenger view was available in pre-release, I hate to see they removed. In fact was one of main reasons to buy it. Shame.

select the unit you want, then a popup pops up with details of this unit. hover over the display in that box and a camera will show up, click on it

Worked... man this user interface can suck. :-(
Hovered my mouse over the train pop up screen and there was the tiny itsy bitsy Camera showing in the bottom left corner.

I like the idea of adding a driver view (vs bumper) very much.

I would personally like to see "how much" "what" the train is carrying even more.
Some stats next to speed saying loading 300 Food to New York in example...

As T3k_Qc above says, a few other stats like -

1. What is being carried
2. How much received etc

Go and let them know (with a short and to-the-point message) via the Contact page on the Transport Fever website. Just today I listed a couple of simple suggestions/bugs and the community manager gave my assurance he is always taking feedback to take to the developers meetings!

So if we want to get them to put this great feature into the game, go and let them know!

They should be paying attention to the Steam Forums where most people are going to post XX idea/suggestions, to get feedback ect from other players. If they are not, then they really do not care about getting feedback.

Big +1 on that. I'll bet that most people don't even know that the contact fill-in form is for that. I'll bet that most believe that the developers DO read the forums, and they'd be foolish not to. If the fill-in form is the only way for them to get feedback, they're going to get thousands of emails with everyone complaining about the same issue. As it is, when there's something I don't like, I first search to see if someone has already mentioned it and others discussed it. That's usually the case, so I don't repeat the same gripe.
I agree with all of the suggestions mentioned and hope at least some of them get implemented. But first I wish they would fix the problem with the existing cockpit view that causes train and line windows to become randomly moved around on the screen when exiting the cockpit view. I love using the cockpit view but I find myself rarely using it anymore because it takes to much time and trouble to fix the mess afterwards.
