Mirrors off/on mod(that is totally worthless)

Recommended Posts

Soooo I found a way to turn cockpit mirrors on and off on a keypress.

 

Sounds great doesn't it, since mirrors are nice eye candy but give completely unreasonable FPS hit I suspect many of you with not so hot hardware would love to have that option I mean I can play with mirrors but I often wonder if up to 37fps lost with them is really worth that eye candy.

 

Now you probably wonder why I wrote it's totally worthless? Good point.

 

It's because I tested it on a pre-saved mission to have same conditions which makes for a good testbed and the results were:

 

1. Mirrors off - 77fps

2. Mirrors on - 40fps

3. Mirrors on but turned off with my mod - still 40fps

 

It seems that even if you kill the mirror mesh completely the game still demands it to be rendered, for whatever purpose I have no clue as that makes as much sense as my neighbor playing Battlefield 3 causing me having bad performance while playing SF2 because my gfx card is somehow rendering his game too...atleast I could beat the living cr*p out of him, here I just can't help it.

 

Anyway here is the attached ini for the stock F-15A if anybody wants to fool around with it, honestly I lost the motivation...

 

EDIT: Oh I forgot, you can switch the mirrors on/off via bomb ripple keys.

      Hi Folks,
      Sorry for my late introduction. I've been on board here for a few years, but have only ever been a spectator.  I'd like to get actively involved as well and will put a couple mods here on the board.
      I have made a few modifications to F-14 (TW and TMF) cockpits, but specifically I am working on a graphical upgrade for the F/A-18 cockpit from Brain32. Especially on the DDI's
      My problem:
      Can someone help me redefine the textures for the ICP.
      For the F/A-18 A cockpit there is only one texture for the counters - DDI_Counter_1. I would like to have my own definition for the ICP. DDI_counter_3, because for the F/A-18C cockpit there are already two. (fuel)
      So that it looks in the end like this:

      The result till now is this:

      I make the whole Font as Glass Gauge. It's a free font it will match for the hud and DDi's but not for the ICP. (Like DCS F/A-18C)

      View File F-15C MSIP Cockpit Repaint
      This is a quick repaint of the existing F-15C cockpit released on F-15 Superpack Redux 2016. I believe it has already been repainted by Viper63 back a while, however a few artifacts lead to my decision to redo the color and give it a TW color tone.

      Sooooo since the last topic was kinda ded i decided to post again.
      Basically im editing the Su-35 cockpit  and i like the re texture ive been workin on 

      But the HUD i really wanna change to the Modern Flanker cockpit HUD made for Marc's Sukhoi's (HUD pic below) 
      sooo im asking on how to do it, since the HUD the 35 cockpit came in would look too old to put in a modern Fighter like the Su-35. 
      Please help.. so i can finally release the Su-35 mod..
      sincerely
