new cherokee vc texture mod

Post kdfw »

Minor texture mods to reflect the cherokee i flew over 20 years ago:

-Attitude indicator colors for older MITCHELL 52D67 including light map mod, pitch ladder calibrated to aircraft (within 2 degrees)
-increased color saturation of the gauges
-slightly darker blacks (glare shield and GNS530 bezel)

the files are at sim-outhouse:

the cherokee is one fine model.

Those are both awesome!

I really like the darker panel as I find mine has that odd 'colours black' especially at night. Out of interest am I still able to apply the ASI in Knots to this panel? If not would you be kind enough to do a version with knots?

Thanks

R.

PS - don't suppose anyone want's to do the newer Rams Horns style yoke for the VC? ;)

I LOVE the new darker dash, but my framerate seems to have bombed! I guess it is a higher resolution DDS than the original - it seems to make a large difference in my case, so I think I will have to go back to the original, or downsample it. Either way, keeping the lovely artificial horizon (having now modified the ASI into kts!!)

some of the .dds are about 1meg larger, so it shouldn't affect anything. maybe add about 1-2% more in overall texture footprint so noise compared to scenery.

but you can always use dxtbmp or gimp and save the files as something smaller.

Nice work friend. Can you make a tan panel for the c172 and c182 too? Thanks for your work.

Just out of interest, could someone tell me why my textures don't look that crisp? Are the default textures of a lower res? I can pretty much guarantee its not my settings, I'm an IT techie by trade, the screen is in native resolution etc...

Are these just a better quality set of textures?

PS I just realised you've done what I created a separate post about - using the gns 530 in the stack! I am so using these textures... Just need to put the knots ASI back in ;)
