Hi all,

Have there been any screenies of the cockpits from the two aircraft that will be flyable in the first release?

Here are some from the new Harrier Gr.3 cockpit which is much more detailed than anything we had before:









And this from a day or so ago, whith less parts textured and less weathering in the canopy arc (maybe better):

incredible work!

woot (requisite cartoon).

will we have 6DOF with track IR? I see some of the screenies show different viewpoints. In the SF2E GR.3 for example, the POV of the pilot is fixed and the vertical climb meter is partly obscured by the HUD controls panel.

2Lt_Joch: thanks! smile Yes, many things would be obscured without 6DOF TrackIR. But we have it supported, don't worry. In the starboard cockpit console there is a seat height adjust which could raise or lower a bit the pilot's POV as well - it's a possible feature.

Jacobs: it is a map display, but it is not digital (because it's a 1960s equipment), the map is displayed through 35mm film reels. It is the same equipment found also in the RAF Jaguar.

Obrigado Dante!

Does the map is coupled to the INS/Nav system? Or manualy controlled by the pilot?

Jacobs: sim, o mapa parte do INAS, e precisava ser alinhado (algo que no ocorreu de primeira na guerra pois no conseguiam alinhar o sistema quando estavam no porta-avies em movimento e tal). Assim que estabeleceram a cabea-de-ponte em San Carlos, foi feito uma base avanada pros Harriers l (V/STOL exatamente pra essas coisas) e ento em terra firme foi possvel alinhar o INAS e voar com o mapa e tudo mais que tinham direito.

English: yes, the map is part of the INAS, and needed alignment (something that didn't happened at first in the war because they weren't able to align the system while onboard a moving aircraft carrier). As they established a beach-head in San Carlos, a makeshift forward base was made for the Harriers there (V/STOL is exactly for these things) and so firmly in the ground it was possible to align the INAS and flight using the map display and everything else they had.

Looks great Dante!

Must be exciting for you and folks at JT, almost time for birth of your first sim.

Awesome GFX. Finally a high-grade modern jet sim that will do nice air combat (DCS A-10 is not my cup of tea albeit certainly also good technology).

Compare Dante's screenshots with these real life Gr.3 cockpit photos. clapping

Chaz: smile used this a lot for reference. Note that it is a cockpit assembling with parts missing, like the panel on left console (which is only sort of a drawing on a black plate).

On the left console too, the throttle quadrant is a re-creation that does not represent a throttle quadrant of the real airplane. For starts, it has no third lever which acts as the adjustable stop for the nozzle lever itself.

However, our JT cockpit is still missing some minor exposed wires and rivets here and there, which I'll be adding down the road, since I am not worrying anymore with frame rates vs polycounts (new cockpit has about 10x the number of polygons, 6x the texture size than old JT cockpits, but frame rate remained basically the same( very high) in my mid-range setup (GF 9600, Q8400@ 2.66GHz, 4GB RAM).
