Hello everyone, has someone added a 3d element to an existing cockpit using the false pilot method ??? I want to make a modification to cockpit by putting elements and making them visible through the line "open cockpit = true", but I want to know the experience of some of you

If you add a fake pilot part to the external model and place it properly in the pit then it will appear without any problem.

I have made a lot of fake pilots, pods, pylons, etc. all are visible from the cockpit slung under a wing. So I do not see any problem in making such a part and placing it in the cockpit. 

Just remember you can not add a fake pilot into the cockpit model.

Thanks Jarek for your answer, this is what I plan to do, a small modification (only eye candy) of the cockpit of the mig 29 sm / smp ..., the mdf screen can be given other functions perhaps ... later I upload photos of the 3d in progress

I don't think that's possible, unless you have the MAX files. Adding something like a picture (girlfriend type) was done in 1stGen. But what you describe, I highly doubt it.

don't forget, cockpits are a seperat model from the aircraft, and the 2 really don't meet

Thanks... I hope I am not disappointed with my idea yet (although I may be wrong) :dntknw: ... I don't want to add a fake pilot line to the cockpit ini or something like that ... I just want to add a cockpit element to the external model and move them into the hole ... I do not know if these, when leaving the cockpit open in the data, will be entered in the view of the same, since sometimes they see the refueling probe but here I hope that the 3d is forced into the model ... i don't know if it will work ... i still try

Yes, what you suggest is possible. I did it with the canopy bow in the cockpit of the Mitsubishi F-2.

The main issue you might get is with the clipping distance. Depending on how close the items are to the PoV they may disappear as you pan around the cockpit.

Also, you'll get the standard issues with the open cockpit (smoke inside the cockpit).

      Enjoying the Korean Air War campaign overall. But sometimes, when things get very busy, the framerate will slow almost to a crawl. My setup is the following (relevant info):

      W10
      i5 2500 (non K)
      8GB Ram
      1TB 7200
      GTX 1050ti (newish drivers, forget the number exactly, 45X I think)
      Sound Blaster Z
      Do I need a serious upgrade to cut through the slowdowns and framerate drops?

      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

      Hello Ya'all
      Im editing the cockpit of the Su-37 mod so i can fit it in my WIP  Su-35 Flanker-E, ive only changed the textures for it for now and im looking on ways to change the HUD display from the one default in the cockpit to the one below

      tried to just delete the HUD folder in the cockpit folder and copy this HUD folder there and i thought thats just it since when i change the Revi sight on 109's i just change the tga file and edit the .ini soo might need help..
      tried looking into the old forum post "Cockpit tips" or something by Russok and didnt found much that helps with HUD's

      Hi everyone, im trying to make a Su-30KI mod based on Marc's Su-27 using a SKM cockpit with my own camo skin, and i tried getting the flag of Indonesia on the aircraft in the decal.ini of the skin and i showed nothing so i made a 650 x 400 Jpeg of the flag and converted it to .tga and it was 739kb and it looked like the picture below. so i thought the pic / file must be too big. Then i re made the flag with a 8 x 4 jpeg and it was a 1kb file, and it was the same problem. i tried lowering the scale all the way to 0.003 and nothing changed. 

      But then i notice the default 51D has the Indonesian flag if i change the nation to Indonesia in single mission, soo is there a way to just get the national flag of it and how?
