  • allow custom views to be specified based on positions taken from scenery objects or the navaids db, i.e. to create scripted views that are situated at apron/taxiway/runway XX using configurable offset YY, at altitude ZZ
  • Allow arbitrary custom views to be rendered to a texture, so that the created texture can be used to create instruments that feature some sort of "outside view", i.e. an advanced HUD or the external view of an A340 (camera mounted on the tail), this would enable us to show external views on an instrument in the cockpit panel. We only need something that allows us to define a custom instrument layer type that gets its contents from a specific user defined (or global) view.
