Fw-190 Complete Cockpit Packs
« on: September 17, 2010, 07:18:55 AM »



I have long been meaning to do this, as it was a big hole in the mods available from here. This is my complete Fw190 cockpits Pack for SAS ModAct users.
It IS based from the 190 Cockpits from HSFX, which I helped with in some cases (see contents list below), in a single download pack.
This mod will affect all stock Fw190's in the game, as well as all modded 190's that use the stock cockpits.


4.09m Version:

1) Fucida's Bar out mod
2) CaptFlushGardens cockpit repaints, edited for and extracted from HSFX
3) CirX Revi 12 for early FW190's (A4 to 6)
4) Askania Gyro sight mod for late FW190D-9
5) CirX POV and Reticle mods
6) Fix for F8 Mistel cockpit for HSFX and UP users who use the mistel(Put this mod in your mods folder of your UP or HSFX install, then delete everything else in the mod except the folder 3do\Cockpit\FW-190F-8Mistel .)

Credits not in the readme(my bad!):
7) Revi Reticle options from Nonwonderdog, edited by CirX (see "Reticle Notes" below)
and I think also included is NWD's revi lenz mod. In any event, the Revi 16's in this pack are far better than the stock 190 ones.


4.101m Version:

1 CaptFlushGardens cockpit repaints, edited for and extracted from HSFX
2 CirX Revi 12 for early FW190's (A4 to 6)
3 Askania Gyro sight mod for late FW190D-9
4 CirX POV and Reticle mods
5 Corrected F-8 Mistel cocpit (corrected from HSFX/UP modpacks)
6 Revi Reticle options from Nonwonderdog, edited by CirX (see "Reticle Notes" below)
8  I think also included is NWD's revi lenz mod. In any event, the Revi 16's in this pack are far better than the stock 190 ones.

I did not include the opening canopy code in this package, so it could be used by all players. I propose an opening canopy mod to be sold seperately.


Notes for Both Versions:

1) Regarding the fix for the A-8 Mistel. The cockpit in HSFX/UP for 4.09 for the Mistel 190 contains some errors. This is addressed in this pack. Users of UP or HSFX 4.09 versions can also use this fix, by following the step in point 6 above. You don't need to keep anything else except the one file, so you can delete all other content of the pack (because it is already in your game)
2) Users who want to make the Mistel 190 flyable in QMB: Go to your air.ini, and find the entry for it. Then remove the "NOQUICK" section of it.
3) The askania Gyro gunsight is used for the Late Fw190D-9. To operate it, you need to assign keys to gunsight operation, exactly like for a P51 gyro gunsight.
4) Since this is from HSFX/UP SFS archive, it is nicely medium rez, so it will look great on good machines, but should not kill the small PC's either. And thus, if you already have UP or HSFX, you dont need this pack.(unless you want to just cut out the Mistel cockpit, to do that, put this mod in your mods folder of your UP or HSFX install, then delete everything else in the mod except the folder 3do\Cockpit\FW-190F-8Mistel
5) This pack is not compatible with the flat canopy mod (it is time someone made new slots for those anyway I think!), so please check if an error you have is from that before reporting it.

POV Notes:
1) I left the POV modification in, since this change is not as drastic for the 190's as for some other planes. Theoretically, you should be able to remove this feature, by removing the "mainhull.msh" from the cockpit 3do folders where applicable. But this will not work properly with the Revi 12 gunsight models, only with the later models with Revi 16s (A8 onwards)(if you remove it and your cockpit crashes, then replace it). In any event, the newer POV is more realistic to what the pilot saw. I use my own opinion of this, since I have spent many many hours in the Fw190 cockpit (not the sim one, the real one)

Reticle Notes:
Since I mod mainly for me, I included the Reticles I use, which are very dim. However, I included a brighter one from NWD, for the Mistel F-8. Fly the Mistel F-8 to see it. If you like the brighter one more, you can copy it to the other cockpits no problem. The 3 files you need to copy to the other cockpits are:

Reticle.mat
Bf109F2ReticleGlow.tga
Bf109F2ReticleHighlight.tga


Just copy from the FW-190F-8Mistel folder, and paste the 3 files into each of the others, replacing if asked.

...CirX, as far as I know (that is very little in fact ... ;) ) WW2 pilots sat on their parachute (nice silk seat cushion isn't it...) did you take this in account to estimate their POV ? (of course also depends on the pilot's height ...) I mean when you sat in the 190 pit did you have some sort of cushion or did you sit directly on the cold steel seat ...??

THX a bunch for sharing ...  :P

Lol, Mick :D

Of course I did. Actualy, the 190 seat is designed to take either a bottom parachute, or one worn on the back. In the latter case, FW provided a seat cussion for the bottom bucket.



Add to that, the Fw190's seat was designed on rails, so that it could be adjusted by the groundcrew up and down, to seat the pilot in the optimum position. I include below two pictures I have of other 190 seats, and two pictures of Lulu's seat in the rail, and the catches.



When I worked in the 190, I sat on a folded up blanket that was the same density as the original pillow (an ordinary pillow would be too soft). Adjusting the seat requires two guys, one on either side of the cockpit, the seat is held in position by two springloaded pins on the inside of the top rollers. The rail in the aircraft has holes for this. Both guys must pull back their pins and move the seat so that the pins can not re-enter, then slide the seat untill the pins click into the next hole. This is difficult, because that seat is extremely heavy, as it is armoured.



The height of the seat is essential to be optimum, too high, and the canopy will be too close to your head when closed. This is a problem adressed with later bubble canopies.



On a side note, the Me262 also had pillows on the seats, and they were stuffed with a fibre that looks like straw :D
When Vincent vtrelut) visited us earlier this year, I got him to get into the Fw190A-6 as well, and he is a tall fellow as you may know, he did not sit on a pillow, but could still clearly see the cowling. I asked him specifically to look for the famous bar (cause you know, no one ever believes ME :D )

Thank You! It is Superb! ;D
It is probably irrelevant, but some of this iron-boxed gunsights have a minor problem.

Awesome mod, however:

Is it supposed to be like this? The gunsights?

Do you have any other FW190 cockpit mods installed? Search your mod folder for any files which names start with " FW-190 " that are in any 3do\Cockpit\ directory.
