That is what we have now, @Lester.
We have not reached our internal decision yet, but likely, it will be to remove the Windows and replace with a texture.

Kind Regards,

ummm... we do have co-pilot capabilities on some craft... there are also passenger capabilities on at least one that i recall but can't remember which craft... you can fly as a passenger just like as a co-pilot but with less abilities other than looking around, out the window and maybe using the facilities ;)

that should still be possible with them cut out...

They are like "baby" co-pilot things, unless you can operate each and every switch, see each instrument, fly the aircraft, and such, in the same way as the pilot, it's not proper. And what does that have to do with anything?

And I won't be adding passengers... that is silly IMO.

i didn't suggest for you to... i pointed out that it is possible just like copilots... and if copilots can't push every button or flip every switch, then the craft needs more coding which is quite normal... some of these things might even need to wait for emissary to be completed and added so the craft can use it... especially if there's a problem with sending too much data over the current MP protocol...
