How do you Look around and use Mirrors?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just wondering how does everyone look around in the cabin? I know some people use things like TrackIR to look around with your head movements.

Do you use the F2 mirrors on both sides or one side, or use the mouse to look around, or have key mappings to look to one side?

I use one mirror on F2 for driving and have key mappings to look both ways for junctions.

What do you use?

I press f2 to see the mirror on the right. I see the left mirror very comfortable during driving. 

I usually use the mirrors to go on another line and see if there is a player behind me.

Hey, I am using the left F2 mirror, since I am driving a right hand truck (UK truck). For the right hand side, I am using the mirror of the truck itself. Anyway, when I am driving a left hand truck (normal EU ones) I don't use any F2 mirrors, exept when I am driving in the Uk. In that case I am using the right F2 mirror.

I use left and right mouse buttons to look left or right, then 1 on keyboard to back to default position. Usually when taking corners, or changing lanes. I use F2 mirrors only when I see my resolution is not enough to see or it is too dark while parking.

I use Trackhat, however it hardly use it as it's buggy with my window being behind me. So I just have it straight, no F2 mirrors, and no buttons to look left or right. Over time I have just got used to the length of trailers and take turns without looking in mirrors, probably shouldn't do that.

I use mirrors + the GPS. I always want to be sure that I don't crash into other players! :D

I have close realistic POV of around 55° so both F2 mirrors & look round with  buttons on wheel. But I might have a better idea :).

I use to look around with analog on xbox controller but its way too slow and doesn't do justice.

 

I opted for my view centered bus still able to view physical mirror on my left and on the right I have pop out

GUI (graphical interface) mirror.

 

TLDR my signiture gif explains a lot how I operate.

Yeah I know lol, just a habit from the days I was playing on ultra low graphics, left mirror was so blured so barely anything could've be seen on it back then, so that as how you say 'draw box'' was the only solution. :ph34r:

I know what you mean, I've played on low settings before on my old PC and the mirrors are fairly blurred.

What I mean by draw area is your PC has to draw another image. That's why the more mirrors you have the more your PC works as it has to make another image. 

In the normal mirrors its normally a really close draw distance so that the PC doesn't struggle too much.

I for one use TrackIR. It feels quite natural and lets me check for crosstraffic and my exterior rear view mirrors very comfortable and fast.
Additional mirrors (F2) are not necessary.
