About

This package contains custom camera views for each aircraft that came with the Microsoft Flight Simulator Premium Deluxe.They offer wing and cabin views, many of them beyond the virtual cockpit movement restrictions.

Version 1.1 corrects the WT CJ4 views, and adds the views for FlyByWire A320 NEO.

The custom cameras have been defined as follows (with the num pad keys arrangement in mind):
Custom camera 0 and 7 - pilot view
Custom camera 9 - copilot
Custom camera 8 - panel view
Custom camera 4 - left wing or engine view in the middle of cabin
Custom camera 6 - right wing or engine view in the middle of cabin
Custom camera 5 - cabin view in the middle of cabin
Custom camera 1 - left wing view at the back of cabin
Custom camera 3 - right wing view at the back of cabin
Custom camera 2 - cabin view from the back of the cabin

Installation instructions:
!!WARNING!! These custom camera files need to be copied in the main MSFS location, not the Community folder. Proceed  only you feel comfortable with the following instructions:

  • locate the "Airplanes" folder in the main Microsoft Flight Simulator installation location. This folder contains sub-folders for each airplane for which you have already saved custom camera views. Inside each subfolder there is a CAMERAS.CFG file with the custom camera views for each airplane. If you haven't saved custom camera views, then the "Airplanes" folder might be empty, or not present.

For the Microsoft Store installation, the path is as follows:
C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\SimObjects\

For Steam installation the path is:
C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\SimObjects

  • !!IMPORTANT!! make a backup of the "Airplanes" folder (see the jpg picture showing the folder location), in case you want to revert to your own saved camera views.
  • Unzip this package in a temporary location
  • copy the "Airplanes" folder into the "SimObjects" folder
  • launch the Microsoft Flight Simulator and make sure that you have assigned keys or buttons (on controllers) for the custom views. You do this in OPTIONS > CONTROLS.

Please read the Readme file included in the package.

Enjoy!

Hello, I am not sure if you may have some answers, but I am struggling here. My version of the game is on Steam. I believe I have done everything as you described in your instructions to install the mod. However, when I am in the game and hit the keys to select a certain camera view, it doesn't change to the view I am trying to select. For example, when I try to select the custom camera 5 view, it pans to a certain area of flight controls in the cockpit. When I go into the controls settings I see where is says save custom camera and load custom camera, but when I hit the keys it doesn't take me to a cabin camera view. I am not sure if there is something else I need to do with setting certain keys up to select the desired camera views. Any insight you may have into what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.

First off THANK YOU. I recently purchased QUEST 2 VR headset.

Seems these custom views are not the same with VR modes.

Anyone figure out how to have these in VR? can they simply be copied?

Is there available tracker camera for MSFS what can follows the AI planes?

Would it be possible to provide a front view without any cockpit obscuration? Like old MSFS / X-Plane / P3D have? I am using a physical cockpit and all the workarounds from the forums are just not right. Basically I want the good old "W" back.

What about this path? (for the NEO320 for example

Z:\MSFS2020\Official\OneStore\asobo-aircraft-a320-neo\SimObjects\AirPlanes\Asobo_A320_NEO

Hi there, I really miss this mod, any news on an update further to SU7?

Don't install in "Airplane" folder because this one is not more available. Directly to LocalCahe/Simobjects

Hi I would like to install your file but I don't have CAMERAS.CFG inside SimObjects, CAMERAS.CFG file is outside SimObjects ... Can I install your file directly inside SimObjects or will it not work? Only airplanes are found within SimObjects. Thanks!

I do like this mod. Can you please add some more airplanes?

Like Crj, DC6 and the new ac from Microsoft (Ju, Husky...)

it seems the mod doesn't work with SU5, thats sad, I like the mod very. Any poxibility to adapt it to the Update?

Thanks a lot!

Hello,

I installed the addon on the latest update of MSFS and followed the instructions. All the custom camera views are flickering quickly and it looks like there are two images that are both trying to display. Any ideas would be most appreciated

TOWER VIEW? Just wishful thinking, but as you are so adept at creating great plane views, is it possible to create a tower view at any airport? Something that is sorely lacking in the sim right now!

Thanks for taking the time to make this, I really appreciate it. However using the latest update (05/28/2021) aka Sim Update 4, I have to press CTRL+6/7 then press K afterwards to get the custom view that I am looking for.

Also on the Citation Longitude they have incorporated a wingview section complete with a window on both the left and right sides of the aircraft, if you could update your mod to reflect having those postions and also keeping the rearward (near engine) wingviews that would be awesome!

Keep up the great work!

Loving this Mod... found one small issue, views assigned to Num0 - 9 work on planes I've tried so far, except the Longitude Jet, Num2, 4, 5 and 6 don't seem to do anything? Any tricks I can try to make views work on that one? Thank you.
Thank you! Been struggling to get views right and this Mod is wonderful..
works an absolute treat. In addtion PropellerBC was more then helpful in the PM's when I couldn't get it to work. would highly recommend
I can't get the views to work; I installed the Aircraft folder within the simobjects folder as outlined in your instructions:

C:\Users\ssaju\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\SimObjects\Airplanes

Yet when I try to toggle the views through the custom camera assignments set in Flight Simulator, they don't go to those views at all. What could I be doing wrong?
Amazing people everywhere. wow
Could you also add the project mega pack A321 and A330?
Will your mod work for an airplane that I recently "converted from FSX" called the Gulfstream 550 ?
