For those that missed it we just posted an article on the new FSInsider site that explains a few of the more obscure settings in the Flight Simulator configuration file. (It also includes instructions on how to find the little guy.) I thought I’d post a couple of my particular favorites, starting with PAN_RATE. This setting controls how quickly the camera pans in virtual cockpit and spot plane modes and you’ll find it in the [CONTROLS] section. The default setting is 400. 400 what, you ask? I don’t know off hand and I’m at home so I can’t look at the code. In any event, it’s a large number and to see any difference you need to make some large changes. After experimeting I discovered thta I like a setting of 800. I makes the camera a bit snappier. You should play around with it, though, to see what you like best.
