I absolutely agree, and with the new In-Cocpit-LCDs it would be even more useful. (Wingman-View, Turret-View...)

Rendering a scene to a dynamic camera is something video games have always struggled with, especially if it's a scene from an area wwith no players anywhere near by, you're asking the server to keep up with scenes that could be across the map, or atleast across max antenna range.


But the real issue with this is rendering a scene to a texture that gets applied somewhere in word.. It's the same as trying to render a dynamic reflection, it's incredibly intensive and difficult to implement.

Just because something is difficult is not a reason to not do it.


To mitigate some of the difficulty it could be restricted to same-grid & subgrids for use as security cameras, reversing/docking cameras, etc.

I agree with Lee. It could be limited to a screen that is on the same grid as the camera.
