This mod provides a reallistic depiction of how the F/A-18C HUD works in real-life. This mod is best experienced in VR.
In real-life, the F/A-18C HUD can only display symbology on the area of the combiner glass that reflects the combiner lens. The pilot sees only a portion of the symbology with each eye and his brain fuses the images of both eyes into a single image of the entire symbology. The real HUD also displays a green glow on low light conditions when the brightness of the HUD is too high. This makes the real HUD a bit harder to see and use than what is depicted by default in DCS.
This mod intends to simulate the limitations of the real HUD to bring the F/A-18C simulation a step closer to realism. It does this by clipping the symbology to the two circular areas that represent the reflection of the collimation lens on the combiner glasses and by adding several green glow effects to the HUD rendering.
