Cockpit photo as checklist

Recommended Posts

Hey, I like looking at photos of pretty ladies as much as the next guy but I thought the photo might be put to better use as a list of parameters. I have a hard time remembering the engine limitations for all the planes. I took the reference from the Quick reference by Jade_Monkey 

and put the important info (to me) into text using Photoshop. I'm sure you could do the same using any graphics or text program... you just have to be able to convert it to .dds. 

I've added a link to those that I've done so far. I will be doing more as time allows.

This would be great,

if there was a server setting to disable the Technochat...

as it stands, its a brilliant idea, but pretty redundant....

But for those of us who do fly without it.... thanks.

A lot of people fly with HUD disabled, especially VR fellas as FPS increases with it off. :salute:

Oh yes!   As another plus;  you don't get to read the chat either:)

What folder to put these photos in

C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\Planes\whichever aircraft\Textures

and rename it to custom_photo.dds

Back-up the original custom_photo if you want to keep it.

Do this mean you only can have one photo each aircraft?

Exactly! But I think one photo is enough and "historically" correct - or would you like to have your whole photo album with you? ;)

No I was thinking about several choices. If all files named the same you only can have one picture in same folder

Hmm...I dunno. Looking at pretty ladies versus aircraft stats...

 

...oh what the hell. Yeah, that’s a great idea (especially at my age now...sigh).

Indeed, that's how it works at the moment. Whether devs are going to expand this functionality to multiple photo choice remains to be seen.

Im sure they did, but Ive not joined the RAF nor has my country been bombed by the 3rd Reich :)

 

Im sure folk putting ref cards in their aircraft wont affect your gameplay!

Why does it matter to you one bit what other players are using the cockpit photo for?

Does anyone know where to find the max RPM for FC planes?

 

1600 in the Camel. I do not remember for the Bristol but they are stated on a plaque.

Those would be the end of my usage of tech chat in new planes I fly. A real bugger to blow engines

That's a very cool idea. But I'll stick with my wife and daughter's photo. It'll remind me of the chores and errands that they tasked me to do for that day.
