3rd View Cockpit 1.0
« on: September 05, 2012, 09:03:50 AM »

DISCLAIMER: This templates can be used in any skin or mod pack that is aviable for free. It is prohibited to use this templates in any modpack or skin that is payed or one of its parts is for sale. So no commercial use what so ever.

Since the crusade for better IL-2 started and escalated with the 2048 resolution high textures i will add improved 3rd person cockpit view. However im not good graphic designer so if you make a skin you will need to do a copy paste from template. I hope it will be not a big issue. High texture mod needed.

NOW:



FRIDAY:



The plan is to release modified cockpits for every plane in the game. For now i start with british and german planes. People just need to do copy paste from template to their skin.

SPITFIRE COCKPIT (tested on void template version Vc) but if all marked items are copied to another spitfire class skin it should work too:

spitfire cockpit parts: http://www.mediafire.com/?ryetca5kadjcdfq
instructions: http://www.mediafire.com/?4py9idf9yzra3q2

BF-109 COMMING SOON (3-5 days)

I encountered these problems while making those textures: lack of proper material that would be suited so i had to use what is aviable freely. Only bettter resolution textures can be made if someone will take screenshots of cockpits at proper light and angle or if he knows how to paint well. I tried to use some screenshots and photos but sadly correcting the angles and sizes was major pain not worth of the quality loss. So if you know some old museum or airfield with old planes making proper photos would make superior textures.

Notes: Im not realy happy with the box number 2 (instructions) as i was forced to draw but its still better then nothink so use that box at your free decision. (The difference quality cant be seen in normal view so it shouldnt be huge issue). Left chair arm is little bit off cant do anythink about it as developers just used simple texture that is autoresizing on a model. if the final skin will have default color different (more darker) then white to fill empty space between parts it should be not so obvious.

+50!

its a very difficult subject for me to paint. It is good top see you put "depth" as well as more general elements in the skins.
Good idea, and well executed!

Great work. This is an element, somtimes a little neglected, that adds lots of credibility and immersion when flying really close to other aircraft. Thanks a lot.

Well actualy i found it accidentaly when i was looking for some skins and found that most of the templates use same 3-4 cockpits for all aicrafts. The cockpits visualy differ only based on what skin site they were downloaded, usualy the first void template with no further modification.

My old computer is gone so all files are lost. There are now much more skins that have already good external cockpits. I will look around if i could tweak somethink and if not then i plan to make some historical missions.
