Default Want to payback community- will create custom dash photos

I've been in flight sims off and on for years, and aside from the occasional youtube tutorial, haven't paid back the community for as much as it has helped me. So let's change that a bit. If you have a custom photo you want in your cockpit but can't make dds files or aren't sure how to do it, send me a pic in 4:3 scale and I'll do it for you.

Put the file in DCSworld\Mods\aircraft\P-51D\Cockpit\Textures\P-51-CPT-TEXTURES and voila. You should be able to just drag and drop.

I actually made mine a chart of different wingspans for different aircraft

I already have a handful of pics setup in OVGME, but I stopped using them, bc they get flagged in MP

If you really want to do the community a favor, get ED to stop flagging the dashboard pics.

That would be nice, huh? tbh, personally, I play mp only on the other sim, and DCS is for my sp kicks. Love the detailed startup and interactive pits in VR that DCS offers, but the spotting and environment for mp is more suited to the other one imo.

Nice pic, btw. Looks like she'll have no problem spilling over from the factory to the front

I am in MP in the Mustang far too seldom these days, but it's sooo different than flying SP.

The biggest issue is ED itself. They have never invested enough in ME possibilities so basically the easiest mission possible is Airquake ...

In my early days, that was okay, but it gets boring, and gives a totally incorrect impression of the aircraft.

Yup, Baby-Doll gives you a couple of good reasons to RTB at sundown
