Metric to imperial conversion chart on ASP. Where did it go?

I've seen numerous screenshots that include an old timey style metric to imperial conversion on the ASP. Example in Chuck's Guide page 25. While other shots show just black. Mine is also just black. Was this removed in an update some time? Is it an option? (I can't see it anywhere). A mod?

 

I literally have a similar real laminated chart stuck on my monitor which I made back in Flanker 2 days, but having it in the jet would be handy.

It was done away with when the entire ASP unit was remodelled and retextured from scratch. The texture in question (for the new ASP model) is ASP_1001.dds, from memory, so you can edit that and make it into a new custom cockpit livery if you have the know-how. I'm not sure if anyone else has released a restoration of the chart yet. I don't need it myself, but liked having something there, so I made my own:

I've also seen missile launch parameter charts - pretty much whatever you like, you can put on there with a little time in an image editor.

 

You can also ballpark altitude conversions by reading the inner needle (km) on the outer scale (x100m) as tens of thousands of feet. It's within about +/-2000ft but it's close enough for when you're dealing with imperial callouts and need to figure out what that is in metric without doing any maths. I don't think this was a deliberate choice on the part of the gauge's designers, but it's handy at times in DCS.
