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
