Customizable Speedbar for Il-2 GB
« on: November 27, 2019, 10:45:58 AM »

As title says, you can customize your speedbar (if any) by hiding elements you don't need (such as speed, altitude, etc.)

This simple mod doesn't do anything by itself, you have to make the customization yourself.

1. Download this file: http://www.mediafire.com/file/lmkddu1371qgaeo/Reduced_Speedbar_2.zip/file
2. Unzip the content and copy it under your MODS folder in your Il-2 GB installation.
3. Within the mod, go to the file "MODS\Reduced Speedbar\Data\SWF\Il2\Gauges\id.txt" and open it with a text editor.
4. Go down to the line
Code: [Select]
&planeMainStationDefault="compass,time,speed,altitude,fuel,engineSelector,currentStation" - compass: displays heading with directonial indication of mission targets and info on wind direction/speed
 - time: doesn't appear to have any effect
 - speed: displays TAS
 - altitude: displays AGL
 - fuel: doesn't appear to have any effect
 - engineSelector: displays which engine is selected in multi-engine aircraft
 - currentStation: displays available ammo, rockets and bombs
5. Delete whichever you don't need, save the file, and activate the mod via JSGME.

Known issues: when you spawn in a plane, the speedbar appears only after several seconds.
Feedback is welcome, cheers

Sounds very interesting. I'll have a test.
Thanks for sharing

I uploaded a newer, "streamlined" version.

It appeared that the content of the "graphics" folder (included in the 1st version prior to 03.12.2019) is not needed and was causing delays when the game was loading non-default skins. (I couldn't figure out why.)

Users of the older version may want to
1. disable the mod
2. go to the "MODS\Reduced Speedbar\Data\Graphics" folder and completely delete it
3. re-enable the mod

Good day to all. Has been a long time since I posted here, I'm mostly flying X-Plane 11 and Great battles nowadays (but I still  have my BAT clean and updated).

With your pardon I'm going to perform a bit of the old good thread necromancy.  ;D ;D

@sniperton. I have been using this mod for a long time and its great, but one of the updates some time ago added a g-meter to the speedbar, It would be possible for you to add the option of removing this gauge from the speed bar as well?

Thanks and have a nice day

Only change is constant.
