I’m also one who prefers the hands/steering wheel because here lately I’ve been playing in VR exclusively.
Quality controlI’ve read from Kaz/PD before FOV can have a significant impact on game performance (FPS).
That said, I don’t see any reason not to have a wheel less, cockpit view. If anything that will be less demanding.
Given the seating position in many modern race cars I often find it difficult to get an adequate cockpit view. In Dirt Rally 2.0 I’ve found the view much more useable. Not sure if that’s Codemasters working’s. Or simply down to the nature of rally cars and the drivers need to sit a little higher.
Although it’s not really what you’re asking for. It’s worth pointing out GT’s ‘Bumper Cam’ view is not really a bumper cam.
It’s the drivers eye view as if you’re sat in the middle of the car. So you get the feeling of cockpit cam. Rather than being perched out on the nose of the car.
1. I have rediscovered the cockpit view lately and found that it really adds information on what the car is doing.
In particular, you can differentiate if the car is turning in well or if it is turning too much.
2. I always use maximum up and maximum forward setting for the cockpit view. The default is already ridiculously low and still you can go much lower. Another underage option probably.
Try the '63 Sting Ray with the red interior. Literally can not see out the front windscreen, in sunny conditions.Yeah, some cars are rather annoying.
The Megane has extremely strong, strange reflections in the windshield.
Hard to see. Hard to get used to. But now I have to go with it.
The side-mirrors disappearing out of sight is probably unavoidable. Should really have either in-car mirror or screen/virtual mirror.
Today, starting in the Audi TT, everything looked greenish/blue-ish. I first thought my screen settings are off.
Turns out they actually use the realistic tint of the windscreen.
It's "the real driving simulator" after all!
Many drivers, even PR1_Josete or SuperGT use the Hood cam,
probably because it is somehow similar to cockpit, but without the distractions and things getting in the way.
On the other hand, this view always just feels like driving a Samba Bus. It's so far off from as simulation that I can't take it.
Whilst using cockpit view on GTS it is not possible to remove the games driver hands and/or steering wheel. Why is this?
As a sim racer I personally want the choice to be able to remove the games driver hands and steering wheel from the dashboard so my own hands and steering wheel replace them for a better more immersive experience.
This is possible on titles such as Dirt Rally 2.0, Project Cars 2 and even an older title such as Assetto Corsa (PS4, December 2014).
Understandably this is not to everyone’s liking but I think it should be down to personal choice and that choice should be available to everyone. After all GTS is supposed to be
