[MOD] Pilot in cockpit (updated: 4k textures)

The bots in FC and Bodenplatte do not work in the Zip file. The file structure is right but no body in or out of pit.

I get it. Thank. So, the files with the names of the aircraft from Bodenplatte and the Flying Circus do not need to be copied. I did it by analogy, but apparently there the files are renamed according to a different principle.

  I was messing with this some before the update. I was able to get a pilot in the pit but I couldn’t figure out how to remove the head. Maybe something has changed with the new update. Can you un-GPT the newest version and try that?  I will check also when I get home from work.

I took the files after the update. But especially not looking, because No Bodenplatte.

I figured out where the files are.

 

\graphics\characters\pilot_brit\textures

\graphics\characters\pilot_ger\textures

\graphics\characters\pilot_usaf\textures

\graphics\characters\pilotcircus\textures

 

You need to redraw the textures here first. In the headless way. To do this, the place of the head is painted completely black in the alpha channel. Then you need to save a headless duplicate. And only then give it a link in all files. I don’t have a Bodenplatte, so I don’t plan to do it myself yet. 


I just tweaked a bit of the default’s skin of a headless German from BoS-BoM-BoK. There remained small dots that scared me in the cockpit.:biggrin:

 This is something that I don’t know how to do. Do I use gimp or something like that?

Yes, you need either a GIPM or Photoshop. I think someone who has a Bodenplatte will do it sooner or later. This is not so difficult, but you need to check in the process whether or not painted over. Because the head has several parts on the texture.

    Would you have time to make pilots in the pit for BP and FC?? :gamer:

That would be great, especially as, at least, the BOBP pilots don't have this wiping over the goggle animation.

There has been a fix for that wiping animation since the creation of this mod. How people keep complaining about it when it has been right there the whole time is beyond me.

I know, but as I posted in June, the fix only worked for me in the FW190 A3, not in the Bf109 F4 or G2. It might be because I used Murleens mod, as I wanted to fly the 110 E2, too.

So I’ve got all the pilots in the pit, however I’m struggling to erase the heads of the pilots. I’m using GIMP. The dds files are in like 6 layers. Can any one help me figure this out?? :dash:

Ok I figured it out so now it will take a while because I’m not sure how to have the pilots headless body not in the outside view. :crazy:

You need to create separate versions of the .mgm files for the in-cockpit pilot view, which use the new headless texture. Given the texture files, I have a script in https://github.com/Murleen/PilotInCockpitMod which runs on all the mgm files and creates the headless models and updates the files in luascripts - you can try updating that with your new textures.

In the github repo are the headless textures LizLemon created, and a python script which will run over the unpacked game MGM files, create headless alternatives for any using the originals of the modded textures, and then update the luascript files to point at the new models.

 

If you'd prefer, if you post your modded textures I can rerun the script to update the mod files.

Can you hide the copilot(gunner) figure in external/internal view for U-2VS aircraft on the next version of this mod?

I want to fly solo :-)

Has there been any further progress in having “pilot in plane” in all the newer aircraft we now have, or is it just too heavy a lift...?

   To be honest I never got around to finishing removing the heads from FC and BoBP pilots. I’m about half done, it’s a little time consuming deleting the heads since they are flattened out to 2D on a square. Often the head bits are scattered about the template. 
    I’ve been working out of town quite a bit and it was a busy month ( Christmas and so on ). I do plan on finishing this then I’ll post them for @Murleen to rerun the scripts to add them to the mod. :salute:

I was using this mod lately, but deleted it again, because I could not exit out of the game with it. This didn't happen, when I used it on my old PC, so I don't know if it has to do with my new computer or some game update lately. But I am looking forward to use it with the new planes.

Hi Yogiflight

I had the same issue after the last update so it's a clash between this MOD and update 4.000 and not your new PC.  I found I couldn't exit the game and after deleting MODs sequentially found it was this one which was causing the problem.  Shame because I think it adds great immersion.  I hope it's something relatively simple for LizLemon to fix in due course...…!

I am having an ongoing problem that my be caused by this Mod ( which may I quickly add I really enjoy...) In all the aircraft that have gunners ( like the Ju-87,Ju88, etc.) the gunners have gone missing both in inside views & outside views- they’ve become ghosts.They still shoot but they don’t appear. This doesn’t affect game play but as you might imagine it is annoying. What I’d like to ask,is there any way to take this back to original default and disable the mod at least temporarily? Perhaps if I remove the folder that the mod has changed & then do a “Verify Files” in Steam ,then I can see if my hunch is correct?

( BTW some gunners like the bombardier in the A-20 or the Gunner in the U-2 are currently headless...I’m not sure if this is part of the same problem or just another glitch..)

Your help gratefully appreciated.😏

Here is the fix my friend!

I do have a question for you though. Do some of your pilots in various planes still have their animations attached to them?

Wow ...so quick! I'll download with my fingers firmly crossed! Many thanks!

To answer your question: I did download & use the "Animation Fix" in the initial post.This fix stopped my annoying habit of wiping my nose during flight ( or that's what it looks like  while in the cockpit....)

 Yes , I've seen this problem too.I think Liz Lemon who built this Mod, commented on this glitch sometime ago& was going to work on it.I'm not sure if it did get attended to though.

Just a quick report   I just checked  :I have my gunners back! Thank you! Thank-you!

Problems persist with headless pilot in exterior view of Hs-129 & now I'm getting no pilot at all in gunner manned U-2...didn't check out the headless bombardier in the A-20 but I suspect he still remains in place ( with his head tucked underneath his arm???) These problems might be a side issue of this mod or some other mod , but gunners back is very good news eye-candy-wise indeed!

Will do & thanks!

Unfortunately I just ran into another glitch similar to missing pilot in U-2 , the Ju-88 pilot is absent without leave as well both inside & outside the plane...

YES ITS STRANGE ...AND THEY'VE STAYED THAT WAY THROUGH SEVERAL ...(ooops sorry had caps locked by mistake )RE-INSTALLS.

Would  you mind looking into the U-2 & A-20 bombadier  as well? Not really big issues for me , but I do thank you!

Here you go, sorry it took so long, I forgot :rolleyes:

 

https://www.mediafire.com/file/9xqkpi3pa9q1ixl/PilotInCockpit.zip/file

 

Worked great - got all the missing personal back, but now missing pilots in the all newer American planes,the P-38, P-47,P-51, Spitfire IX ,Me-262, and in the later marks of the bf-109G-14 & Bf-109K-$...very odd!😘 Haven't checked the Tempest yet...Any ideas?

I really really like this mod , but as you’ve read I’ve had on going issues /problems with it, probably because of interfaces with other Mods or just a glitch in my own install.In any case the only solution I could see was to do a uninstall through Steam making sue I first disabled all JSGME mods and that textures & lau scripts folders were brand new versions when I re-installed thru Steam. Steam reinstall saves all skins, missions, and Campaigns and my “histories” as well. So unfortunately all my “pilots in pits are gone but all the pilots, gunners et all are back in exterior views. I hope eventually all planes will be able to be modded with pilots in the cockpit and then I’ll try again.It is such a great idea!

(BTW I also did a reinstall because of problems with another mod which did a redo on the cammo on airfield hangers.It is a neat idea but during my game play the hangers became almost black when viewed from a distance.The reinstall put them back into their original look.)

Nice mod but I'm not able to read a part of the instruments in some aircrafts anymore and I would have to use the 'technochat' for that.

Fully movable arms and legs of the pilot would be a solution. (just kidding)
