SO, I will blanket address you all, but, first, to Claw, I wish to thank YOU personally for at least saying that "feature" is completely optional with a toggle. Thank you. NOW, to the folks quoting me and making assumptions about what I want or do want or anything of that sort. RIGHT UP UNTIL CLAW stated it has a toggle, I saw a feature that was 100% FLUFF. This is NOT a declaration of what I want or do not want. It is a feature that, has NO PURPOSE beyond looking "pretty" to some. Again, NOT a declaration of something I do or do not want. With the fact, KNOWN FACT that we CANNOT move in IVA, the ability to see a "tech drawing" of our ship provides 0 benefit to doing ANYTHING. Again, NOT a declaration of something I do or do not want. While, YES, to some it may, might, could possibly have value in video making could be useful, I do NOT make videos so, thats a PURE GUESS. Is it useful for keeping track of who is where? COULD BE, but, hit M and check your ships roster out by clicking the kerbal and that tells you too. NOW, let me go into what is irritating me about a feature, that, to be 100% swear an oath in court honest, I think, at this current time, with current known features is something that could have absolutely waited to be done, as there are frankly bigger issues to tackle. I mean come on, we are switching to U5 and who knows what bugs that will bring, what things that work now in 1.0.5 are broken and being tackled for 1.1? ONLY our devs know. I personally think, they could have waited to do this for say 1.1.2 or some such when the big bugs, bugs the size of godzilla are roaming the code have been tackled, the fact that other things that need to be done seem to have lost priority to a fluff feature is what bugs me. Do I want this feature? I honestly will use it exactly ONCE to see it, then shut it down and forget it exists. NOW, please, understand something, I say this with all the respect in the world for our devs AND this community, I think they made a mistake doing this feature NOW when we are in a state of transition to a new and better version of the engine, it is something that, I honestly can see some people making use of, but, again, right now, with the lack of mobility in stock <no clue if a mod exists that allows IVA movement> in IVA this is a feature that we frankly do not need at this time. I cannot now, nor ever stress this simple fact: Cut-away views should not at this current time have been done, they should have waited, just as I think they are holding off on GP2 and other bits and bobs as they make a strong core game. Shiny parts, plasma trails, longer and better smoke plumes are all things along with, yes, IVA mobility, are things I would LOVE to see happen, but, again, not while things like engine upgrades and bug fixes that go along with that change are going on. I just think, it is something that would have been better done later. I do hope with all sincerity HOPE this now makes sense to you all. again, @Claw thank you for at least allaying ONE of my fears. I wish everyone reading this a happy spring break and if you celebrate it, a Happy Easter. Edited March 16, 2016 by AlamoVampire can a mod kill that quote box, it wont go away.
