Trailer: No cockpit, how?

Postby pheonixstorm » Sun Dec 12, 2010 3:20 pm

Looking into creating a trailer for the next release but want to know how to completely empty the screen so I can still fly but w/o any of the cockpit graphics, vdu, radar, etc showing up. Is it possible and if so by what key?

*EDIT*

Also, do we have another camera angle to use. Kinda like a thrid person view or a tracking cam for missiles?

Maybe not exactly what you are looking for, but some of it should be close, no?

Not what I was looking for but does provide some info that I didn't know and may be a way to work around the current limits.

Replace all the graphics files with full alpha or geometry-less models.

1) Replace HUD graphics with "empty" PNG files and use first person perspective.

2) Replace ship model with one that contains no polygons and use third person perspective.

Easier: just remove or comment all the entries in the cockpit files (data/cockpits).
