Default L-39 G-Meter

1. Instrument Fonts, Max/Min G and Limitation Markers

Would it be possible to update the cockpit instrument to have heavier fonts/stronger colours like this (only the needle looks to have right weight/thickness).

As it's very hard to read the Hi/Low G markers/Limits.

This is after using Photoshop auto colour/contrast to fix the image, the Min/Max markers are at -2.5 and +7.5.

2. Audible Alarms ?

I found this titbit in a UK CAA Airworthiness Approval Note for a L-39ZO

Load factor limits are up to +8/-4 g and a warning tone is heard in the headset when these limits are reached.

AFAIK I haven't exceeded the G-Limits yet so can't say if there is an audible alarm as described.

Has anyone exceed the G-Limits in the DCS L-39C or L-39ZA and/or know if it has/should have an alarm or what it sounds like?

Yes, instrument appearance is not the best, that's why I fixed this in my mod. You can take the instrument textures and use them alone if you want...

Tone is there and working (AccWarningTone.wav)
L-39C/ZA Czech cockpit mod My DCS skinsAll of my mods not compatible with 2.5 will be fixed and made available at a later date.

Thanks, your mod is an excellent example of what needs polishing texture wise for the instruments. And thanks for the name of tone - I played it in media player as it's not a tone I expect to hear in flight/combat.
