The original thread for this project is here ---> Blackhawk project - original

I'm picking up work on this again, getting it to work in the latest code version. The original thread was getting quite long, and a lot of the screenshots and links had been lost.

So I'm starting a new thread to keep track of progress on this.

It'll be updated to use the latest code, but won't be part of that release. It'll be an add on mod.

That's what I'm hoping. The digital number displays were the last thing I was working on. So now I've done them in the ka50, I should be able to get them done in the Blackhawk.

Back in the game! Up and running in the latest 1.16.1.

Now the work begins.


If anyone wants to have a look at this just now, let me know and I'll send you a link. But be aware. It is very. VERY, unfinished. Use at your own risk biggrin

So don't post about things not work or needing fixed, or textures needing resized etc. I know! biggrin

I might add it to the Blackhawk, as I'd like to use some of those MFDs, but I won't add it to the Apache in this mod.

Wow, so much going on here!!! Great news that the Blackhawk will come!

Had not much time to look in the forum the last months, cause I'm working very hard on my homepit project.

I was really surprised to see that 1.16.1 is out now. Great work!!!

Chaff and Flare numbers are now shown on the control panel.

Also, how cool does it look with the cockpit lights off biggrin


It's a seemingly small update for having worked on it all week. But I had to rework a lot of things. The model in the scene for some reason was tilted, so I straightened it as it'll make adding things easier later on. But it meant I had to re-position all of the objects in the scene again. I also changed all of the digital readouts to use a single texture for each display. They were using separate ones for left/right before. But there's a finite number of textures that can be used for displays, and I was running out.
