    Question "Internal" view

    Anyone tried the internal view for a good amount of time?
    Usually the view from the very front of the thing you're racing in hasn't been a turn-on to me in any game, and I was expecting no different in Wipeout, mainly because of the speeds you're racing at.

    Change is always a bit of fun though, so I gave it a go on phantom class, while doing my 99 laps on Metropia, and I was surprised at how easy it was... in a way it was easier, while making the game feel faster and more exciting, and I got really good... is there something wrong with me here? I might start using it more often.

    Your "Internal" view: opinions?

    [EDIT] I apologise for my n00bness, this should reeally be moved to The Pilots Lounge :/ mods help?

    I'm with you on this one. Internal view feels faster, more intense and personally I find it easier to line up for cornering.
    There's not enough internal view pilots in my opinion - so keep at it

    I never thought about that but you're absolutely right, the external camera is always a bit delayed in turning, and internal isn't.

    I never gave internal view a chance, it feels really wierd for me, but maybe I'll try it out some time.

    Internal view has a different effect in different game versions, as for example between HD and WO3, so perhaps this thread should be left here in the HD section.

    I've attempted to get the hang of internal view on HD a few times. It really does feel faster, more engrossing and more intense. Sadly, I've always failed. I can handle a few races but not much more. Controls feel too twitchy, whichever ship I use, and the faster speeds tend to give me a headache.

    I did a comparison while doing some TT once and my results using internal view weren't bad, but they weren't nearly as good as close external view. With internal view, even when I felt I'd done a really good lap or session, the results just weren't as good as I expected. This might be due to a lack of dualshock at the time. I couldn't tell easily whether I was scraping walls, which will always be a handicap, unless you never scrape walls. I hadn't spent a massive amount of time on it, so I didn't expect amazing results, but as I said, it always felt like it went better than it actually had.

    Something that I'd be intrigued to know is how certain things appear in internal view compared to external. A major thing would be the effect online when you get near a ship and get turned around from a laggy collision. I have a feeling that the effect doesn't appear nearly as drastic on the screen from internal. But without being able to see both at the same time, it's hard to tell.

    The biggest disadvantage with internal view IMO is that you basically can't see anything while doing a barrel roll.

    Lance: Exactly what do you mean with different effect?
    I tried WO3 with internal view (not cockpit), and the only difference I could see is that there are icons instead of visual effects for shield etc...

    @SaturnReturn : I'm planning on taping the Nordic Session this Sunday. Anything outrageous that can happen during a game usually does in those tournaments.

    @LurifaxFlux : Yeah, br's can be tricky with internal view, especially knowing if you get enough air or not.

    In my humble opinion internal view should be the only way to play HD. As others mention, the sensation of speed is pretty wild at times and that is really what this is all about.

    I actually just tried SLing a bit on Talons Reach (rev) on internal and I got within 0.15 sec of my PB, I had to stop because I was slightly dizzy and sweating like an athlete On more BR intensive tracks I just lose it completely though.

    I really wish I had started out in internal, but now I'm too set in my ways and every BR ends in a total mess

    Trying it out was amazing, but the problem I have is that even though it is something really good, I still won't have that edge I have on external view, but the second I switch back to external my skill level goes down a mile, I just start crashing into walls etc, and after the while it takes to recover I don't feel as good as I was at the game :/

    Meh, I've never been a big fan of the internal view, it feels like I have blinders on the side and I can only see straight ahead. I like to see what is happening all around my vehicle, so farthest view ftw!
