Apart from the Rebel and TIEs though which fighters do people like to use?
What about the transports used in the solo campaign game? Otana, YTs...

Greetings! It's been a long time since I played the upgraded XWA (2002 maybe). The Dynamic Cockpits are really fantastic! What are the new modeling possibilities for cockpits? Higher Polycount (What's the current limit?)? Are new maps available? (Spec map for glossy metal parts or normal maps for baked details?)

Read this post about Materials.

DTM and Blue Max know more about the Cockpits themselves.

There is currently no support for specularity/metallicity/normal maps at the moment; but it can be added in the future.

Greetings!
First, great work. Love the mod. The Cockpits looks fantastic. But I have a question. Even if I installed the mod with the options "no HUD at all" in the T/A X1 i still have the HUD. Is it possible to disable it after the installation? A new installation didn't work.

That option disables HUD for craft with dynamic cockpits only if the craft replicates the HUD functionality - if not the HUD stays so you don't loose information.
Craft without cockpits obviously must keep the HUD to prevent you missing data.

Hei Trev,
Thanks for the help. It is interesting: It seems that the T/A X1 has all necessary information, like the other ties but they don't work. For example it shows i have 6 torpedos, even if i fire some of them.

Thanks for the help.

There's a bug in the DC file for this craft. Please use this one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h3cxr9qvdt4f7 ... it.dc?dl=0

Hi,
it is possible to download somewhere new or WIP cockpits? I saw on youtube X-wing cockpit V29.0 a I fell in love:-) Same for Y-wing WIP cockpits. Both are from korekwerner... I think. Beautiful work!
Hi. Sorry he is not a member of the XWAUP. Those are his own works and he hasn't shared them yet with people.
Should be interesting to see a combined work with XWAUP and that guy and his team

Hello all. First time on the forum here. I hope someone can help me.

These dynamic cockpits fix my biggest complaint about the game (unimmersive purple floating hud). I was super excited to install them. However, no matter what I do now, the game crashes as soon as I enter a cockpit. I've tried various reinstalls and isolated it to the Rebel Dynamic Cockpit mod. Once it is installed, the game is no longer playable.

Is this a known issue? Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

EDIT: As usual, I find the fix as soon as I post. Apparently it is only a problem on my existing save file. No problems when starting fresh. Thanks, all!

Welcome to the community in more active role. Someone should be along shortly to help you narrow down your issue I'm sure. But let me ask, do you by chance have track IR or a VR headset, and are you messing with that at all?

hmm, using the last patches, for some reason the dynamic cockpit don't work for the Tie Advanced X1

EDIT:
Found the issue : I run a modified version of DSCUP and while in the exe (through mxvted) it don't care about upper or lower case, the hook DOES

Is there any way to get the MFD's on the A-Wing visible in the virtual cockpit without setting my FOV to 120 or something crazy? Can't our pilots just lower their seats a bit?

Fitting all the different HUD elements in a cockpit so that they are all visible is a bit of a challenge. However, you can lower down the position of the camera, this is called the POV or Point-of-View. You can do that by downloading MXvTED and modifying xwingalliance.exe, or you can use the POVOffsets.cfg file to specify an offset on the current POV.

Open POVOffsets.cfg, and set:

force_apply_custom_POVs = 1

The A-wing is usually located in slot 3 (you can see the slots with MXvTED). So, you'd need to do something like this:

Code: Select all

1   0  0  0 ; X/W
2   0  0  0 ; Y/W
3   0  Z  0 ; A/W
Where Z is the offset you want to apply. In this case, you can probably do:

Code: Select all

3  0 -5  0 ; A/W
That will lower down the POV a little bit.

Thanks for the reply, I will give that a try. Does offsetting the POV preserve the horizon?

Yes, the horizon won't move, this is a translational offset only.

One of the testers of Empire at War Mod AOTR ( should tell everyone ) asks the following about dynamic cockpits:

"What bothers me is the low contrast of the target computer. Most of the time I can't see the distance display because the numbers are also green and very small. So I would like to have a bigger number or a different color for better contrast.
At least with the Y-Wing. "

And he mentioned a bug in the Y Wing, that you could probably close S foils, but it was already old

See this thread: https://www.xwaupgrade.com/phpBB3/viewt ... 36&t=12827

Look for "The text in the Y-Wing CMD is unreadable" to find the fix.

NEW RELEASES!!

Blue Max has been learning even more talents! He has now created new Dynamic Cockpits for the Assault Gunboat and Missile Boat!
He's done a great job of making these nicer looking and functional. Not easy with all the Missile Boat extras.
These cockpits feature his new Holographic display system. So now your in game messages etc are floating in front of you!
You can even press Ctrl+Shift+T to toggle the holograms on or off.

But that's not all. Now pressing D will turn the classic HUD elements on or off. No more need to run an installer again.

You can still press CTRL+F to switch Field of View for a larger view if needed.
Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Shift and the Right/Left Arrow keys will allow you to move the cockpit view to your preference.

Missile Boat v7.0
Missile Boat1.jpg

Also in partnership with the TFTC Team the Missile Boat has an alternative closed S-foils look. For those cramped hangar spaces.

Assault Gunboat v8.0

Also in partnership with the TFTC Team there is now alternative Landing Gear added.
Thanks to Bman, Angel and the team.
