    to the developers and to everyone interested...what do you think of the possibility of having mouse clickable cockpits for cars?!?Is a feature of lots of flight sims and i think adds immersion, i know there are a tons of things to do before but maybe in the future, one day...

    I don’t see how can it be used if you’re using a wheel except during pitstops.

    did you ever tried dcs world flight sim?!?if you can click something on a fighter jet with mouse while in vr, then of course you can turn the engine on just clicking the right switch...it would add immersion to the game and who knows...if tomorrow you would find yourself in front of 911gt3 cup car...you can steal it, start the engine and fly away ;)

    Been there, done that :)

    Kunos already did this with NetKar Pro in 2006.

    Some liked it, but for me it actually broke the immersion. Using a mouse made it painfully clear this was a computer program.

    You usually have a free hand in a flight sim, no? For me personally, although I can see the appeal in VR, I don't think this would be very useful, I'd rather press the physical buttons on my wheel and buttonbox. On the other hand, if in VR there was a way to have a cursor in your field of vision with which you could "target" a button and use a button on your wheel to activate, that might be something, but you'll still have to look away from the road for some time.

    Don’t really see this working in vr so much. I have my button box positioned exactly where the Lambo console is so the feel and reach distance is about the same.

    If the in game burins were used for activating g stuff I would need to take my hand off the wheel, pickup a controller for tracking and go for a button on the virtual dash? Would take too long and you would almost certainly bin it.

    in flight sims ypu can use keys mapped on your joysticks, click on the cockpit or just use the keys of the keyboard, so one does not mean you do not have the other, but is just a matter of preference

    It is going to happen in VR sooner or later with the haptic gloves.

    I wouldn't be able to keep my car on the road while I grab my mouse, have to look around the cockpit to find a button, then try to click it before putting my car in the wall. Don't see how this would add any immersion tbh.
    Trying to type something on a straight is hard to do already, and that's without having to move the camera to look around the cockpit. I can only imagine how many people would bin it with such a feature.

    In flight sims you have time to look around the cockpit, sim racing requires a lot more concentration and eyes-on-the-road. Imagine having to use your mouse on tracks like Zolder.

    So, no thanks. I've got all buttons I need mapped to my steering wheel.

    But do you want to press a virtual button or a real one in the right place?

    Think I’ll stick to my button box with all the buttons and rotary’s I need

    I for one would like to see it coming back to a Kunos game. It wouldn't replace key bindings, you could just ignore it (like you could in netKar?).

    And it would require implementing a way to look around, so you can actually look at the gorgeously made cockpits without a head tracking device or free cam. That would be a good addition also...
