Default Any chance of cockpit textures upgrade?

Hi

Considering that the A-10 and the P-51 are getting new textures, is there any plans to revisit the F-5 cockpit as well? While the textures are definitely not bad, when coming back from flying the hornet it is just obvious that they are not as good as in the latest cockpits. Would be a shame to let this wonderful module get old texture wise.

thanks!

F5E textures are far from obsolete, evne if its not on the level of detail we saw on the Heatblur tomcat.

IMO whilst the A10s is bit more aged ED should have prioritized updating the Ka50 Cockpit. That IS hands down the oldest that still looked dated even in the older DCS 1.2 pre edge engine.

Since it inst really that old compared to some other modules if they spent the time to re texture, I hope they'd Modify it into the F-5EM. and relegate the US based E model to FC3 level.

The F-5E cockpit needs attention to make it compatible with the new lighting system at the very least.

Especially as it’s probably the best aircraft to fly in DCS despite it’s lack of power

You have to update the external and internal model. Textures also have to be updated. I'm sad about the quality of the 3D model of the F-5E. It looks like it was done lazily. This module is far from final version. A feather. I'll think 100 times before buying a Belsimtenk again.

This statement I can partially agree with, the functionality of the module is absolutely brilliant however I don't fly it often because it looks really dated, the textures are not up to par with the newer modules (obviously) would love to see a more high resolution, gritty, better presented cockpit though +1

You mean youl never buy an ED product anymore?

Belismtek doesn't exist anymore. They merged directly with ED ( they were in an adjacent office anyhow and close partners anyways). The former members of the BST team are working on all ED projects

Out of curiosity, couldn't this be done by the community as a mod?

I don't need that much glass. I'd take an F-5N or two, though. The AN/APG-69 is a huge step forward.
