There are many new features in the upcoming WOFF and that is wonderful! But i must say, one KEY function that seems to not have been fixed is the external mouse view. In cockpit view you can move around the view with the mouse, and frankly why this is not possible in external view is to me very strange if not acually very stupid.

Is it just me or is this function really not seen as important?

Using the 'hat' of the joystick as it is now is just a notch above non-functional, since the camera speed is way to fast thus causing a very uncontrollable feeling.

The game is meant to be played with joystick, and we recommend head tracking for much better game play and immersion.

Mouse view is an extra bonus for viewing and zooming in the cockpit for those without headtracking. You don't need a mouse for outside as you can use the POV. Head tracking is not used for outside views either.

You can slow the speed of the hat, then the main outside views are easy to rotate with POV hat - you just need to edit the speed in ViewUI.xml found in
C:\Users\<YOUR-LOGON-NAME>\AppData\Roaming\OBD_Games\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields

In Spotview and chaseview sections at the top, look for LateralDelta=
and set it to "20" rather than "80".
