DCS: F-14 - Brickdust's "Drunken Sailor" VR Friendly Cockpit - Complete cockpit overhaul to increase use and legibility when using a VR HMD
High contrast/increased cockpit panel font.
Indication and warning light textures reworked.
All primary instrument readouts and gauges reworked.
Comes in 2 flavours:
BE (Black Edition) - Cockpit interior trim in 'Gunmetal Grey'
This mod will be regularly updated as I progress through both the pilot and RIO cockpits.
I'll be updating this mod during the foreseeable future as I work through both of the pits/texture files for the F-14. Of course, this will make it no longer an 'authentic' cockpit for the purists, but it should make a marked QOL improvement for us VR users.
I'll do the best I can to preserve the work of HB and keep the mod quality level as high as my skills allow, I won't be down-scaling or resizing entire texture files.
All alpha channels, normal and roughmet files will be worked on where applicable to preserve lighting and such. And I'll be doing my upmost to sel ect the best mipmap filtering/scaling filters to avoid blurriness and aliasing at distance.
This is my 1st proper go at doing a full cockpit texture mod. It's early days so please feel free to offer any thoughts, advice or constructive criticism on the project...Hopefully I'll be able to make a better mod with feedback.
OVGME/JSGME ready - Just pop it into your chosen manager and give it a whirl.
At the moment this mod is an instant IC FAIL, but as soon as HB implement custom cockpits I'll look at getting it into the relevant file structure format.
