Default Mirage 2000 Cockpit Indication Fix

Hi,

Now that the Mirage 2000 seem very close to its final stage, I come back with fix for cockpits indications alignment, textures, etc. This mod is a global rework of HUD, Radar, RWR and cockpit digital display (PCA, etc..) symbology.

My goal was to:
- Being the closest as possible to the real aircraft's indications and visuals, in location, size and proportions.
- To rationalise elements positions and proportions, for a perfect alignment.
- Improving fonts and textures for better visual render, including fix for mipmap filtering and opacity (brightness) adjustment issues.

The result is that all textures was almost integrally recreated, including new fonts, created from scratch and almost All LUA files related to cockpit indication was reworked...

I hope people will enjoy (download link at bottom of post).






* HUD Symbology Rework :

- New HUD font, two separate textures for large and small text
- Adjusted HUD font dot character width for correct font spacing
- New "zoom-proof" HUD heading tape texture with corrected ratio
- Fixed HUD heading tape mipmaping problem
- New "zoom-proof" HUD symbology texture with harmonized style and tickness
- HUD elements rationally aligned together according real data & best guess
- Fixel HUD dynamic elements opacity and brighness control
- Adjusted HUD collimation factor (depth position)
- HUD symbology color adjusted and default opacity fixed.


* VTB (radar screen) Symbology Rework :

- New VTB font texture
- New "zoom-proof" VTB grid textures with correct alignment
- Fixed VTB grid textures mipmaping problem
- New "zoom-proof" VTB heading tape textures with corrected ratio
- Fixed VTB heading tape mipmaping problem
- New "zoom-proof" VTB symbology texture
- VTB grid, font and symbology textures style harmonized with screen effect
- VTB elements rationally aligned together according real data & best guess
- VTB symbology color slightly adjusted


* RWR Symbology Rework :


- New dedicated RWR font texture
- New RWR symbology texture
- RWR font and symbology style harmonized with screen effect
- RWR elements rationally aligned and adjusted for better readability

Brilliant work, a real shame Razbam hasn't taken your work and implemented it into the core module.

Thank you - this is the perfect work!

I have only one question: is it possible to use this mod in MP sessions (i mean integrity check)?

New version 1.1 of the mod released with bug correction. The previous version had missaligned HUD and VTB heading tape according the true north. This is now corrected.


You will find the Mod donwload page link in the initial topic post.
