It's just [t]racking the planes in FPS camera mode (ie switch to FPS mode, select a plane, press t).

It might be because of speed and high turn radius?

Or do you mean when the camera is stationary and planes do a flyby? If that's it, then I just tracked them with the mouse

Just generally, the camera control seemed well above what I am capable of in motion. When I have a unit tracked, the unit is rarely nicely centred in the screen, and the camera tends to jump up and down with the unit as it travels over terrain; which looks strange with only minor variations in the terrain below. My videos are generally stop-start junk; screenshots I can do fine, but videos just tend to be nasty; unless you set things up so that you can keep your camera still and have the action flow past you (which I notice you did do a couple of times too).

Hi,

I would like to know if this mod is Free like GPL (LGPL, BSD or anything else) ? I would like to package Spring for fedora with some mods, may-be this one if it is Free.

Thanks :)

Oh, well, maybe I just have good mouse control... and it sounds like you are not in FPS camera mode when you're tracking, if the terrain is causing the camera to jump up and down. Try tracking flying units in different camera modes, and yes, I did do the ol' let the action flow by the camera, but I don't know why my camera movements were any smoother than anyone else's.
