A program called NewView helps a lot.

It allows you to simulate TrackIR with your hatswitch. When you start pressing hatswitch right for example, it moves smoothly to the right. Initially slowly and then accelerates faster (the time, speeds and acceleration are fully adjustable). When you release the hat switch the view stays in that position. You can then set a button for centering the view quickly if needed. That makes it quite easy to keep eyes on target even without TrackIR.

I'm not sure if it works with Cliffs of Dover but I used it for a long time with IL-2 1946 before I bought TrackIR

AA is helping because it smudges the 1/2 dot pixels over their neighbors, making the spot a little bit bigger than the no AA dot. On the other hand, it blends the edges against the background, which should make it a little bit harder to see.

So, overall, I guess the AA/noAA dot sighting improvement really comes down to specifics (resolution used, dot's distance, dot's background, user's sight, monitor settings, room lighting, etc).

The biggest problems atm with the dots are the hardcoded distances at which the dot is switched off and the smallest LOD is switched on. they are not overlapping each other, and this is what is causing the disappearing dots problem. Also, it seems that at around those distances, the dot's relative (rendered) size is bigger than lowest LOD's relative (rendered) zie, which again leads to the above mentioned problem.
