It will be nice if you add an 3D cabin/cockpit
just like the old DG
and in DGIV it will be more nice if you add all buttons unlike the old DG

Always a big request from Dan, but he is involved in the UCGO addon for Orbiter right now with a whole new spacecraft.
Unfortunately, The DG-IV is likely at the end of its development possibilities. Dan is making minor modifications to the
cargo capabilities and minor cosmetic changes with the release of UCGO (think of it as the DG-IV.5). Dan has not announced
any desires to improve or change the DG-IV beyond this release. The Arrow Freighter will allow for much greater customization
in the years ahead.

Welcome to Dan's Forum BTW!

The DG platform is really end of life. One might be able to go further with a total immersion DG, but it is banal. Everything
DG has been pretty well done before. Even Doug Beechy has moved on. Notice that his big ships now are the XR-2 and the XR-5.
 Why? Because they are not the DG!

It is sort of like saying, "Gee, I'd sure like to see Windows 95 with Windows 7 icons ;) "

Thanks for the welcome "Sun Dog"

if he is going to make a new spacecraft

Then I hope it "has" 3D cockpit
and fully detailed like DG-IV
plus lets not forget about newbies and basic pilots
so I think it should be complex when ye need and easy to use when it has to
just a thought ...
I hope no one takes me on the offensive ^.^ .. all ppl are offensive these days -.-'

The new spacecraft which Dan is developing does have a 3D cockpit (not sure about how detailed it is, but it sure looks
cool!), and it has many other features which should add a lot of immersion to flying it around in Orbiter!
