This mod does three things:

1) It replaces the Hornet's DDI screens with flat LCD MDIs and changes the AMPCD's texture to match. Changes the font to off-white, with an option to keep it green.

2) It alters the green filter applied to the FLIR picture on the DDIs, so the TGP and Maverick video will now appear in gray-scale, similar to the F-16C or A-10C.

3) It excludes the AMPCD font from being controlled by the brightness switches, so that the moving map on the HSI and SA page can dimmed without reducing the text brightness. This feature can be removed.

18 Feb 2020 Changelog: It seems that since 2.5.6, simply placing files in a folder with the same name as the zip folder does not override the original ones, so the OVGME/JSGME method doesn't work from the get go. Install manually (instructions given) or with OVGME/JSGME, (by altering a few things, instructions given).

------------------------------------

!!! This mod does not pass IC, since I had to add a new custom texture. Because of the same reason, it cannot be installed via the Saved Games folder, at least to my knowledge. If someone knows how to do it, I'd welcome some instructions.

! Changing the font color also changes the friendly HAFU, PPLI etc symbols to white from green. Seems like they're tied to the font color. I've looked for a way to change that via the .lua files, without success. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

------------------------------------

Option 1: Keep green DDI and AMPCD font. Delete/don't use the materials.lua file, located in \FA-18C LCD MDIs\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Scripts\ before using the mod.

Option 2: Maintain brightness control for the AMPCD's font. Delete/don't use the folder named "Multipurpose_Display_Group", located in \FA-18C LCD MDIs\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Scripts\ before using the mod.

------------------------------------

Suggestions are welcome.

Manual installation:

1) Go to \Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Textures and paste the contents pf folder named "FA-18C-CPT-TEXTURES", located in \FA-18C LCD MDIs\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Textures\ into FA-18C-CPT-TEXTURES.zip, located at \DCS\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Textures\. BACKUP THE ORIGINAL ZIP FIRST AND STORE IT IN A SAFE LOCATION

2) Backup and replace the "flir_texture.dds" file, located in \Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\IndicationResources\MDG\, with the modded one

3) Backup and replace the "materials.lua" file, located in \Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Scripts\ , with the modded one

4) Backup and replace the "AMPCD_init.lua" file, located in \Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Scripts\Multipurpose_Display_Group\AMPCD\indicator\ , with the modded one

------------------------------------

OVGME/JSGME installation:

Keep the file structure of the mod. Copy the FA-18C-CPT-TEXTURES.zip from \DCS\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Textures\, place it into the \LCD MDIs\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Textures\ mod folder and place my custom textures from the FA-18C-CPT-TEXTURES folder into the zip, overwriting the original files. Delete the folder with my textures afterwards and keep the zip (with my modified textures plus the rest of the default ones). You can then use the mod with a mod manager.
