    P-51D cockpit mod

    Updated 05-05-2016
    I like the gauges from this p-51d so I made it for DCS. It changes the instrument panel of the P-51D. Calm, clean and with a blink of an eye registration by color indication.

    05-05-2016 changes:
    - cleaned windshield while keeping dirt effect
    - corrected some bugs in the alphachannel of p51d-cpt07.dds
    - reflections on canopy reduced

    Modifications
    - added the critical color ranges in the gauges
    - added a slight bevel of the gauge indication on colored backgrounds
    - minimal color change of the gauge indication, from 100% white to few procent added yellow (to make it less blue)
    - made text within gauges fluorescent. I imagined radium paint was used for this.
    - cleaned text and indication of image: p51d-cpt08.tga.dds
    - fixed some leaks of the alpha channels so fluorescent locations match the paint.
    - changed the background
    - made bezels of the gauges darker and less reflective
    - desaturated the yellow line
    - undamaged centre instruments
    - less dirt in the corners of the canopy glass

    Code:
    How to install
    1. copy folder "vivid colors" from the .zip into directory: 
       Drive:\DCS World\Mods\aircraft\P-51D\Liveries\Cockpit_P-51D\
    2. In main menu DCS -> options -> special -> P-51D, select a Customized Cockpit
    howto.txt in the .zip file

    download



    Cheers, .

      It really looks nice, but it seems to me that the yellow line too saturated.

        Thx , the yellow line is default (prob. screenshot oversaturation). I only changed the gauges not the dash. To be exact I changed image p51d-cpt07.tga and p51d-cpt08.tga.dds.

        Changes:
        - added the critical color ranges in the gauges
        - added a slight bevel of the gauge indication on colored backgrounds
        - minimal color change of the gauge indication, from 100% white to few procent added yellow (to make it less blue)
        - made text within gauges fluorescent. I imagined radium paint was used for this, but please correct me. I like to keep it accurate
        - cleaned text and indication of image: p51d-cpt08.tga.dds
        - fixed some leaks of the alpha channels so fluorescent locations match the paint.

            Downloaded, tested, and adopted!

            Nice work

            PS: would it be possible to add a little more glass reflection to the gauges? ...

                thx for bringing it up. I fixed it and updated the download. I forgot about the glassdirt and extension should be .dds. By the way it lowers the dirt in the corners of the canopy glass (more transparent).

                        Default the mod does not not since the TF-51D uses different file names. But I renamed them and it works. See file attached for cockpit mod TF-51D

                            This is not JSGME friendly. I put this in my mods (not mods as in modules) folder and create my folder in there called "Mustang Colored Gauges Mod" and I extract the 4 items (not the howto) into there and I go to JSGME and active it, turn on DCS, aaaaand it doesn't work. Either your mod is broken, or the DCS version is different between me and what this mod is meant for, or the howto isn't very "How to" at all. I would like some help with this. I have DCS World 1.5.
                            P-51 Mustang greatness!

                                Check the date of the original post, almost 2 1/2 years ago. I have no idea what version of DCS was around then. Suggestion, always check the date of posts here and never assume the target DCS version unless so stated in the post/mod.

                                    Not really. If you use uv ligfhts, its not working correctly. ED has altered it a little.

                                    Oil and fuel pressure (little gauges) have moved a little bit.


                                    If you dont use UV lights, its ok but with them on, no! The entire gauge is illuminated.



                                    Salute!


                                    Hopefully sb canmake this working again.
