Is the Mirage Factory team able to make a proper cockpit for their F-14D mod?  I love the fact that they have put so much effort into making the F-14 Superpack as realistic as is possible within SF2, except for the F-14D cockpit.  It appears to use the exact same pit as the F-14B, even though the Super Tomcat had some of its gauges rearranged to allow for 2 MFDs.

At right is what the real F-14D Cockpit looked like.  I don't know if TMF has anything like this in the works, but if not, I just wanted to remind them (i'm sure they already know given the realism of the other F-14 variants).

It can't be that difficult, if they had the time and inclination to put it together.  Might have to use the avionics70.dll instead of the avionicsf14.dll to make those MFDs work.  The big thing would probably be redoing the actual 3d model of the cockpit.

having the MAX files would be the most important thing, yes? Don't know if they even still exist. Crusader or Sundowner might know. Then, there's getting someone to ACTUALLY re-work them in MAX. Not a lot of cockpit gurus around

When the Superpack became a thing (~2012), the team decided to use the F-14B cockpit that was already in use in the original F-14A/B release from 2010, which was further revised when TW released SF2:NA and actually allowed for the F-14's unique displays.  We didn't ever have an F-14D cockpit, so we just adjusted the avionics and radar a bit using the same cockpit, and that was the solution until an F-14D cockpit proper could be made, though no one had any plans for one.  To date, still no plans I know of exist, unless yakarov is serious in his comment in which case, good luck and I'd love to see it!

Speaking of Tomcat, I have a bit of news and I think this is the thread to do it.

Tomorrow - Saturday in the US - there is a livestream all day about the F-14.  Details: https://fightson.net/tomcat/

Long, long list of guests and door prizes!

is the max file available ???

I went through my old messages and did not find one containing the max file itself.  ToS did the cockpit, so he'd be the one with the file.  I haven't seen him on in a long time, although that doesn't mean he isn't around.

Still have 14A pit max backed up somewhere, and Ive also sent it back to ToS some time ago (years..).  He had planned to make a D pit (and/or B Sparrowhawk?), iirc.

Yeah it's like a late-model F-14A pit.

I'd love to see a real F-14D pit for TMF's Tomcat.

I literally explained it above: it's an F-14B cockpit.  We do not have an F-14D cockpit.  It would be nice to have, certainly, but until someone makes one, we have what we have.

      Can someone do a cockpit for SU-25T/SM with better Shkval/Mercury display resolution?
      Thank you.

      Note: I removed all the nation sounds from this Menu packs for size reasons. If you intend to install the "VIPER63A HQ Menu Sounds" pack, please install that pack first. Installing the HQ Sound pack over the Menu pack may overwrite some of the menu specific music files. You can always re-install this menu pack to get the menu specific theme music back.
      I've seen some very nice screens in 1920x1080 mode, so I thought I'd give it try. So here is my "Top Gun" contribution! Special thanks to Homefies and Spectre8750 for their contributions that led me here...
      This mod includes custom "Top Gun" themed menu screens, pilots and music. I used the MENU INI files to reuse the music files for different menus. This reduces the size of the package as I don't have duplicates of the same music files for different menus. You should unzip the file and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are MANY alternate screens I have in there that you might like better.
      If you choose to install these screens, I recommend that you back up your FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders in the SF2 Mod folder you're installing this mod into. Just in case you want to go back to your original setup.
      To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder.
      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win10 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...
