Cool customization the f-14 cockpit

hello,

I have an idea about the customization of the plane, I submitted my idea to the studio heatblur, they enjoy the idea, but they told me that this part of the game directly related to ED studio…
so I tell you about my request which I think will be interesting number of players of the future module.

It will consist of adding the possibility of customizing the plane with the names of the pilot and the RIO (like on the real plane) in the interface of armement (see the visual below : http://www.noelshack.com/2018-42-7-1540107172-f-14.jpg)

I think this modification is not very complicated to do and would be very appreciate by the players !!

I hope that my request will be taken into consideration by the devellopers !!

I like idea, but in a hit list of desirables, it wouldn’t be very high for me.
As a workaround, is it fairly easy to modify a skin such that you have your own callsign on the outside of the aircraft?

Love the idea. In general the option to customize "decals" on the planes with squadron logos or personal stuff, would be awesome... especially if it could be integrated in MP.

I would agree with names specifically. Though unlike the USAF, USN aviators rarely flew the aircraft with their own name on it. The crew to fly was assigned whatever "up" jet was available regardless of what the canopy rail said. But it would still make for an interesting mechanic. But only names. While Navy jets have a history of being fairly colorful, it's enormously uncommon to see personalized nose art applied to an aircraft, to the point where you may as well just skin edit.

It's not a high priority for me, there is more important things I'd like them to work on first.

You can bet the guy(s) working on radar, FLIR and other more important things, are not the ones who make the nice skins, textures and nose art and their integration into the mission editor/load out menu...

Skin edits do not show on MP, unless you download and put them on every client. A way to have squadron logos and typical decals replaced and synced, would be a great treat for virtual squadrons.

I know that but the modification of the skin is not within the reach of everyone and there it would be much simpler like this...
