Virtual Cockpit

Recommended Posts

Hey guys:I'm wondering if anyone here can give me a detail description on how to make a DYNAMIC(guages move) Virtual Cockpit. I downloaded a tutorial for CFS but that didnt help much considering im useing FS2002. Also tell me what program you use to make it, so I am aware on which one to purchase. Thank you. Chris W AAL630

The dynamic cockpit (aka Virtual Cockpit) is made with either GMax or FSDS2, and is part of the compiled .mdl file.Your question makes it sound like you want to "add" a VC to an a/c that doesn't have one... which simply cannot be done.OTOH, if you simply want to know how to include one in a completely new model, look through the messages over the last four months, and you'll find quite a few that I've written as 'mini-tutorials' on VC creation.

>Chris, here is a tutorial >http://www.freeflightdesign.com/tutorials/dvc_tutorial.zip >>Download it. It helped me when I was trying to figure out >how to make them in GMAX. It is at this website: >http://www.freeflightdesign.com >>Good Luck! You do realize that there are several errors in that tutorial, right? Evidently you managed to either avoid them or got lucky... :)It is a good work, and did provide the needed clues, but that technique will lead to several dead ends when it comes time to add night lighting.

>Crap. There is no way to just insert it into the aircraft? It is an impossible as trying to place a 2 ct. diamond at the exact center of a 6 lb cube of platinum - without melting and recasting the metal... :(
