Hi,

This was something that Umberto mentionned in another thread but I think it desserves its own so the idea dosen't "vanishes" from view.

I think that idea is indeed an excellent one and would give the users more control over the procedure and be a lot more immersive than letting GSX do everything by itself or a system offered by that "better pushback" plugin on X-Plane I often hear about.

It would also be equally great if we could pull the airplane too, as the pull feature has already been confirmed by Umberto to be a future feature, logically of the core GSX program.

Don't worry, it won't surely vanish, since we always wanted to do something like this but, being compatible with FSX has always hampered it. So, this will eventually make it, but will be a P3D4-only feature and, not just for the pushback: we would like to let you drive any GSX vehicle in first person.

Can't say exactly how much time will take to do it because, as you have noticed, we would have to redo many vehicles with better interiors.

Thank you for the confirmation. Man, the pushback/pull truck alone would already be amazing. At least for a starter, as redoing the rest of the GSX fleet would indeed take some time.
