I wonder If there is a SDK available for WOFF?

If so, is there any possiblity to change the default camera views so that enemy and friendly planes can be spot viewed.

This is my biggest issue with WOFF. It would increase the fun of platina WOFF alot if possible.

There is a cinematic view in RoF, that I absolutely love, would be a great bonus in WoFF.

From the WOFF FAQ
-----------------

26) *Gameplay* How do I select a View from Target-to-Player?

Bring up your TAC 'Shift+T" (toggle)

Press 'TAB' to select an enemy Target or 'Shift-TAB' to select a friendly - the 'item' will go yellow in the TAC.
Now cycle/switch the view pressing 'F1' a few times until it says at the top: Player Target View.
Now 'V' will toggle the view between player to target, and target to player.
Notes: (Pressing T also changes target types to narrow a search to only certain object types. Pressing "tilde" (~ or ‘ on some keyboards) will padlock this target if you are in the cockpit when you select a target first).

Also if you wish you can now remove the TAC and Tab key will still cycle through targets easily whilst in Player Target views.

You can also use Observer view which is a free roaming camera (new view added for WOFF, note experimental but generally works well, see WOFF FAQ section 28.

It would be nice to be able to tilt and rotate around the target to check it out all I can do know is zoom in or out of a fixed view.

CH_RoadDogg already in there, in Observer view you can FREELY move around. See the FAQ section 28).

When in Observer view pressing mouse button you can find your target and others, and zoom around with joystick etc.

v1.15 will likely be our last feature expansion anyway - no more additional new features after that. However any major issues we will of course try to address as usual.

Yes but it would be nice to be able to do it in target view to evaluate your gunnery skills and see the damage when your in quick combat practicing such things.

Yes it would be even more perfect, but that is a brand new new mode, you can easily view craft around you.
We are not changing views now.

I had a gut feeling that this would happen. I know its probably very time consuming to add new features & not see comparable financial rewards.

So, I'm praying that you continue to do addons and not abandon this fine sim.

Yes happens with every product (and many get no useful updates or free features). Yes after the forthcoming update patch we are now focussing on Add-on packs, and as I said any new issues we will still look at possible fixes - but not features.

The sim is pretty solid and complete. Just enjoy what it is, and what it can be with more upcoming packs.

Thank you guys, you've already fixed everything (except Hounslow neaner). Eagerly awaiting for the new add-on packs to buy.
