NOTE: These custom camera views are tailored to show as many window views as possible using the existing windows in the model, if you want a more general custom camera setup I recommend using another camera mod that shows more variety in cockpit, instrument, and landing views instead.
FlyByWire A32NX Window Views
The FlyByWire Simulations team released new window views to the Development version in November 2021. I couldn't find anyone else who updated their custom camera view mods so I made my own. You can freely move these cameras and switch to and from them easily from the cockpit with key bindings. All window views are new but they are based on the work of the excellent Custom Camera Views mod by PropellorBC. I have released this mod with their permission and I highly recommend trying their mod as well. There are two versions of this mod, the one I use has new mappings based on columns on the numpad with new instrument views for my own versions of the standard instrument views 0/2/5/8, and another one with keymappings based on the existing ones of the Custom Camera Views mod, with the cockpit views intact.
To get the most out of this mod, you need the Development version of the A32NX mod by FlyByWire Simulations, which is available as an option on their installer.
Custom Cameras 1/4/7 are the window views on the port (left) side, starting from the rear
Custom Cameras 3/6/9 are the window views on the starboard (right) side, starting from the rear
Custom Camera 0 is the EFB (flyPAD) closeup view
Custom Camera 2 is the EFIS and FCU (Glareshield) closeup view
Custom Camera 5 is the FMGS and Comms closeup view
Custom Camera 8 is the bottom overhead panel closeup view
To switch between these camera views from the cockpit, you should go to the Controls Settings and map the number pad keys on the keyboard to the "Load Custom Camera x" options in the Cockpit Camera section of the controls, x corresponding to the actual number pad key. There are detailed instructions of how to map the keys on the Custom Camera Views mod page.
How to Install
!!!READ ME CAREFULLY!!! To install this mod, you must locate the AppData folder where the simulator is installed. This mod cannot be installed by simply moving into the Community Folder or using a mod loader. The Airplanes folder is where any custom cockpit views you save are stored and loaded.
For users who bought the game from the Microsoft Store, the location can be found:
or enter the following into the address bar of your file manager, find the Microsoft.FlightSimulator_RANDOMLETTERS folder, and open the SimObjects folder within it:
For users who bought the game from Steam, the location can be found:
C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\SimObjects
or enter the following into the address bar of your file manager:
%appdata%\Microsoft Flight Simulator\SimObjects
You should find a folder titled Airplanes at the top of the SimObjects folder. Back up the Airplanes folder somewhere safe and outside the install directory. If there is no Airplanes folder, make one. Move the FlyByWire_A320_NEO folder inside the Airplanes folder. If your file manager asks you to replace any files, click continue. Launch the simulator and make sure you can switch to the camera views from the default cockpit view using the number pads or whatever input method you prefer. To switch back, use whatever key you use to reset the cockpit view.
There is a chance the camera view may "peek" through the window glass during flight. This is caused by the way the camera moves inside the cabin, especially during turns or while flying through strong winds. This can be fixed by disabling Camera Shake in the Camera settings, but the issue is small enough imo that it shouldn't be necessary to enjoy the mod.
