About:
Some cockpits 3d, especially framework for IL-2 1946 is very old & in need of upgrading
finding a fast method to boost polys for cockpits has allowed me to be able to go & create this pack
this is a test wip for new Cockpit 3d framework upgrade for stock CP
this test only includes LA-7 & Spitfire VB cockpit
these files only update the cockpit framework & nothing else
they are meant to upgrade stock cp.

*these files are not yet optimized, they have excessive poly's, (detail that is not needed)
*they should give good fps & little performance problems


ds

in the meantime people can try this

LA-7 & Spitfire VB Cockpit framework 3d upgrade for Stock AC

Great work! Please continue with the Spitfires, they've needed an overhaul for such a long time.

Thanks :)

thank you Gattobuono & you are right they have been neglected ! but for now i must stop all other work as i am being distracted again away from the texture development work on Spitfire VII & XIV , it seems it happens every time & i think releasing the new texturing is an important step , once the 7 & 14 cockpits are done that will also provide the updated Cockpits for most spitfires

Needed 3d work being done on Spitfire VII, VIII, IX, XIV pit/s, now very curvaceous,
fairly straight forward to boost polys, but then rebuilding some parts & now re-mapping all new boosted parts takes time, still a lot of optimising to be done & a hell of a lot more to be done all over the rest of the pit

it is a lot of work
it will take time to finish properly & to look nice

please take my word for it that it is already looking much nicer in game, however i am very wary to show anything Wip in game

2d bolts will be replaced with 3d bolts (where the grey Triangles are)
Old 3d bolts being changed for newer ones
Bullet shield will have new bolts / sockets , so to remove the old stock 2d

Canopy etc being worked on also

This is what im using for Reference
