This mod replaces the Hornet's left and right DDI screens with flat LCD screens. Improves the dynamic reflections on the screen glass. Changes the font to off-white.

It also alters the green filter applied to the FLIR/MAVF/AG radar picture all displays, so the AG radar picture, TGP and Maverick, SLAM etc video will now appear in gray-scale.

Install the cockpit textures by placing the "FA-18C Hornet LCD MDIs by Harker" folder in C:\Users\username\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Liveries\Cockpit_F-18C\

Install the white font and grayscale FLIR/MAV/AG radar picture changes by copying the Mods folder in the main DCS directory and overwriting.

Enable the mod by going into Options -> Special Options -> F/A-18C and sel ect "FA-18C Hornet LCD screens by Harker" fr om the Customized Cockpit list.

You also need to select MFD Reflections: Static in the Special Options, in order to see the changes.

Changelog 08 Nov 2020:

Updated for 2.5.6.57264 Open Beta.
Slight adjustment to the font color, should be a little less yellow now.
Removed the custom AMPCD texture. The last patch broke it and seeing as I could not solve the issue, I removed it. The change was minimal anyway and should not be noticeable by most users. The left and right DDIs work as intended.

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

Option 1: Keep green DDI and AMPCD font. Delete the materials.lua file, located in FA-18C LCD MDIs\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Scripts\ before using the mod.

Option 2: Keep the green FLIR/MAV/AG radar picture. Delete flir_texture.dds, located in FA-18C LCD MDIs\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\IndicationResources\MDG\ before using the mod.

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

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, without success. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

I left the AGM-65E LMAV page grid on the default green color on purpose.

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

Suggestions are welcome.

Incompatible with cockpit mods that alter f18c_cpt-displayglass_refl.dds and f18c_cpt-displayglass_refl_RoughMet.dds. You'll have to overwrite these files (and delete the previous f18c_cpt-displayglass_refl_RoughMet.dds) with the files of this mod, in order to get the changes.
