Yep, good question!

 

I've unpacked most of the files but I can't find any reference to the damn thing at all. The compass is removed by editing swf\il2\gauges\id.txt but there's no reference to the G-meter in there. I've also found graphics for the compass but nothing for the G-meter there either. Not sure where else to look, to be honest.

I did the same and didn't find anything too

The Swf.gtp file is slightly bigger than the unpacked folder (809 vs 807 MB).

Maybe unGTP doesn't unpack everything from the archive?

That's a real possibility. Every GTP file I unpack ends with an error message saying "unknown type encountered" in the console window. Maybe it's unpacking up to the point where something has been added with a patch, and then stops.

Or it doesn't have the new content at all. My Swf.gtp has a timestamp of 11 July, while the last patch was on 14 July according to my updates folder.

In this case I wonder why and how the extracted old id.txt is otherwise working as designed.

But hasn't the g-meter been in since before the latest patch? I'm not sure since there have been at least a couple of patches since I last played. Thing is, I've unpacked everything except the Maps/Planes/Skins/Vehicles GTP files and still haven't found it. I suppose it could be in one of those files... I might unpack them when I have the time, but that's a hell of a space.

IMO what really matters here is that the graphic representation of the G-meter cannot be found. Wait off the next update and perhaps we'll see what the heck is all this about.

Something like this?

2018_8_26__18_46_52.jpg

 

ICON_D_D_NL_SMLR_T_SQ.rar

 

Am I doing something wrong ? ... I tried couple of versions but never got distance ?

 

Whatever I activate,  trought JGSME,  I only got small triangles or spots ? 

 

Are there any active mods with a distance ??

It's something you could probably tweak yourself. This mod removes the text by deleting the letters and numbers from the font file. If you unpack the original file and just delete the letters, I'm guessing the range will still work.

You open the icon file in an image editing app and reduce the size to whatever you like. Or even change the shape completely, if you want.

You'll need to unpack it from the game files. I may have it here somewhere, will check later and upload it if I do.

Thanks for these mods, a must have!

However, besides just dots near aircarft/ground units (that I obtain using ICON_D_D_NL_SM_RB_DOT), I like to have the map with ground icons but no aircraft except mine. I tried ICON_Map_All_Planes_Off_3102 but my plane is also invisible... is there any mods for that?

Thanks.

Many thanks mate!

 

I decreased a bit triangle and made an arrow shape... I think that a small arrow shape is the best... not much different in game - but looks better.

👍

You are welcome. Please upload your mod of the mod, so that others also have the chance to try it. I guess you are not the only one who likes your individual mod.

Is this mod no longer available? It seems as though all of the files have been deleted.

Hi.

i´m very interested in this mod but haven´t found the correct one for me yet, maybe you can say which version i should take, or what to modify in the files.

I want everything as it is just hide the plane name and pilot name so basically just the triangle and distance as marker over the plane.

Thank you.

Try reading the thread. Not only is there a version that does that, the files that need to be edited to make your own version are also mentioned multiple times.

I´m gonna go through the Thread again, with more open eyes, maybe i found it not because english is not my native Language. Sorry and Thank You.

 

Yes with more patience in reeading, i think i found the right one for me thanks again.

Since I've also downloaded various versions but still haven't found the icon set displaying only distance as well as the colored triangles, could you please report which icon set you've discovered that fits that description?  

 

Thanks in advance!

 

P.S. Oh, and by the way PivoYvo, I'm a native English speaker and you have nothing to apologize for!

I found the ICON_D_D_NL_M_RB_T_SMGU for me. 

But it has NO Distance marker, cause the numbers from the fonts dds files are cleared. I read something, in this thread, about the extraction of these files but the person who tried this had no Luck doing it so I don´t think I will have more Luck.

So no distance but the rest is good for me. hope this helped a bit.

Yes, that's the icon set I'm currently using, since I have a hard time reading the default text displaying target distances anyway and am trying to get comfortable with the Spitfire's gyro gunsight so I know when to shoot when in convergence range.  Coming from IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, I'm surprised that we're not offered the same options for displaying icons in Great Battles.  Also, I liked being able to set up my gunsight after I'd pressed PAUSE so I didn't have to do so "on the fly" but am now slowing down time before making these adjustments and returning to the fray!  Great Battles is definitely a challenge with a long learning curve, especially with the lack of helpful mods (NGHUD, NGMAP, etc.) to assist novice pilots on their journey to mastering the game.  

 

Cheers

I was able to disable the compass but i would also like to disable speed and the altimeter. I know i can disable the hole instrument table in the options but then the markers for planes and ground units is also gone.

Is there a way to put the little icon that indicates the leader of the group on one of the mod icons?
Thank you

Sorry if I am necro-ing this thread a bit, but I was wondering if there is a way to remove "marker arrows" while keeping just plain triangle/dot markers?

Yes. If you read through the thread, myself and others have already explained what to do in order to customise this mod to your own requirements. All you need is an image editor.

Nice!

Besides all of this nice work I want an icon Mod that only shows aircraft type a 1.5k and closer friend and foe and Friendly Pilot name at 500 meters and closer, to make identification closer to what you have in In real life.

Any of ya have that idea also?
