I think this was not enabled due to some kind of bug or limitation experienced to date; I am unsure where Blue_Max is with enabling this function at this point however, though it would be nice to have consistency between controller inputs.

I would need to take a look at the code again, but from what I remember, the short story is that this is too much effort with very little return in investment. I think I recall the game uses two mouse look functions: one for the hangar and one when flying. So that's why the CockpitLook hook doesn't work in the hangar. For SteamVR 3dof support was added because it's hard to look at menus, the Concourse, etc without it -- and also because you get dizzy very quickly.

Track IR in the hangar was definitely proposed to Blue Max but there were some existing limitations . A VR solution was found but is a little choppy, which I helped him test.
