Rear View

It's nice to have it but I didn't use it once because of it's size and location. 

Wondering if it could be moved to the bottom where we look more often?

Re: Rear View

Yes it can.  I'm not sure what Scott is going to do, but in the meantime:

1.  Hit Alt + ~ to open up the console.
2.  Type in or paste this into the console.

RearView.position = getword(RearView.position,0) SPC getword(getres(),1)-getword(RearView.extent,1);

3.  Hit Enter.
4.  Close the console by hitting Esc or Alt + ~.

That will place the rearview mirror at the bottom of the screen.  Making it bigger covers up other gui elements, so if you want to mess around with that as well I'm sure you could come up with something using the following commands:

echo(RearView.position);
echo(RearView.extent);
RearView.position = "546 0";
RearView.extent = "188 51";

Re: Rear View

What about turning it off? I personally don't care for it too much

Thx.
It's the same for me, I find rear view too distracting -- even in Descent.  In Talon the radar does the same job less obtrusively.

Re: Rear View

I haven't checked yet but can the rearview be assigned to a key for instant full screen instead of having a rearview mirror?  This is how I play in D2/3.
