    I'm just Curious, Because of all this annoying hate towards the missing Cockpit view.

    Question: Don't you think it will be possible to create some kind of Cockpit view as a mod for the PC version ?..
    It probably demands a very creative thought to do it, but Camera placement and maybe a texture with transparent view to simulate the view out of the window, could do the trick ( like with looking out through a helmet )

    I'm just wondering, :o)

    Gran Turismo did something similar to the standard cars, and that works fine..

    We'd all love that :) But is there anyone out there willing and capable of producing high-detailed cockpits (including movable parts such as a steering wheel) for a ton of cars? Even then I wouldn't know if it'd be compatible online. Maybe an experienced modder can help us out!

    Just got the game. There seems to be textures, and models for the interiors. So maybe if we can get the proper changes done to the cameras.xml file we can enable an interior view.

    EDIT: I just did a test. I can confirm interior view works. The textures look awful though.

    Ryder25 You're a legend, haha!

    I'm waiting for the people on the CM forums to go into full rage mode now and say ''butt if codmastr did cockpit already y cant we dirve it''

    I'd assume that these low-res cockpit models with low-res textures are in the gamefiles because when the car is displayed in the menu, we can see it through the windows?

    There seems to be a blurring effect, though. Maybe to cover up the low-res textures. If, in the enormously awesome case, someone would manage to create a highly detailed version of the cockpit.. I think that creating a moving steering wheel isn't possible?

    What do you reckon?

    BTW: Suppose, everything would come together and we'd end up with a working and presentable cockpit-view in the future, we'll call it a RaceDepartment exclusive, eh? :D

    I'm sure once everyone gets their hands on the game, they'll be working on making a solid cockpit mod. That's probably the first thing on people's minds in terms of mod. The picture is just for demonstration purposes, but I believe it can be made waaay better.

    Question is, will it be compatible online? If it isn't, I personally don't see the point in putting this much effort into creating a cockpit view.

    I think the database appears to be hidden in the .exe file Ryder explained to me.

    No different than GT5's "standard" interiors.

    I think the cockpit view can be improved immensely. The screen you see there was just a quick try, and the reason for the blur is because of the camera settings that I copy/pasted straight from the original grid.

    Not sure if its possible to do but can we get rid of that hideous sunshine that ruins basically every CM game for me? Everything looks very very good under normal conditions but when the sun comes around the corner and blinds and disorientates you the fun is over.

    Rear view mirror is needed for online badly with bonnet cam, please say it's possible. Game is very very fun online but this is a deal breaker for me for longevity, too hard to know where people are

    I have a mod request and have tried to alter the icon files myself with no luck. Fanatec wheels have xbox button illumination on the pc however in game the buttons are shows as numbers. Is there anyway to mod the so that the fanatec wheels have the xbox icons matched to the proper buttons on the wheel ? I believe a mod for Grid 2 would be easy to adapt for other codemasters games as well. I would be happy to do the work if someone could at least point me to the right direction. I have only managed to break things when I try to achieve this.

    Hello, would be cool to have a roof cam view (like in the F1 series). I know nothing on how to mod, so if this mod comes up, I will be very grateful.
