Hi,
as I wrote earlier, I will come back when I do something new.
Models for training missions, hud and effects. I hope you like them.
Everything in the beta phase.

Have fun.
Love your work, especially what you did with the hangar. A minor request for the hangar though.

The hangar uses some textures that show T-65 X-wings and RZ-1 A-wings. Some of us have installations that play in different eras, or run campaigns where the player command ship may not have T-65s and RZ-1s. For example, I'm currently working on Sequels campaign, and the presence of RZ-1s and T-65s in a hangar full of T-70s and other sequel ships looks a bit off. Would it be possible to add different FG textures that blank out those Rebel fighters?

@DTM great work, thank you for sharing.
My version is inspired by hyperdrive docking ring.
I am closer to the old trilogy than Star Wars Resistance.

@Jaeven - this is work in progres and thank you for the suggestion. Hangar needs a lot of fixes.

Thanks for the advice. I'll take it into account.
I noticed during the tests that some texture formats damage the game. What's interesting, not the model itself, but everything that's around it.

New things.
Rebel hangar workstand and acceleration rings for training missions.

Warning - the opt uses different texture sizes. works well with hooks from Jeremy. Tested with different configurations.

Why not use a site like mediafire, or google drive so you don't have time limits on the downloads?

Korekwerner.. can you re-download your New HUD files again? I thought I made a save file but didn't...... :(


Edit: Got lucky!! :applaus: I found the file... But Korekwerner just some friendly advice... re-download the file... It's a good file, ;) just have your own files in it. I'm pretty sure other people will want it. Just make another thread.

I'd assume the shield effects would be another file?

Looks great!

By the way, as some of the other, older mod files are now offline... could it be possible to reupload them?

Ermagerd.

Okay, so I don't see anything super different with hyperspace. We really need some HD graphics for that at some point, no idea what that'd take thoug.

The updates to your HUD using the dynamic cockpits function and redesign to be more similar to the original X-Wing game is certainly interesting and looks pretty crisp.

I have to say, the XWA HUD is pretty underwhelming and hard to read text, but your changes here seem to resolve that a bit. To what extent do you plan on implementing the updated HUD dats into ship textures going forward?

Nice! This is the kind of stuff I was hoping people would do with blue_max's dynamic cockpit mod. The only thing I might suggest, if your intent is to eventually distribute the mod, is to increase the size of the sensor scopes & text displays, for visibility.

@Driftwood @keiranhalcyon7
I took into account several versions of the settings of individual elements, both elements of the dynamic cockpit created by Blue_Max as well as standard (flat) elements. the limit of 8 areas of the in-dash cockpit is hard to get around. that's why I combined flat and virtual.
I want this cockpit to be ergonomic for pilots in the physical cockpit of the "real size" xwing model

I am not a programmer and I prefer to leave this job to specialists (JeremyaFr, JaggedFel, Justagai and Blue_Max).
I'm currently working on changing the effects of explosions and i will try improve the hyperspace effect and another iteration version of the flat HUD (separately for the empire and rebels ships).

Wow I love this.

That is one thing I liked in the pre-XWA games, was having the HUD elements as part of the physical cockpit.
