How do we install this?

JSGME? or copy and paste deleting the original files .... ????

Use JSGME install one by one is too complicated...
I'll try to make a all in one package for lazybone😃
however, the folder path is already there, just copy/past "data and it's Subfolder" to your game folder.

I just did the JSGME, it is just changing the routes/path so that you always start with data

It works beautifully!!!

I hope in due time it becomes official such as the 4k skins done by other modders and included in official updates :clapping:

I was thinking that maybe it would be great to have a folder with the original files, then copy and paste to replace them so you can use it with Mods off. If sth goea wrong in the future, you can copy the original files back.

Could you please make that backup folder? You better than anybody knows which files are required.

Thanks a lot!

Original files are hidding in the *.gtp,  if something wrong, you can just delete all the cockpit files.
We can take original files out from Plane*.gtp (in the data folder), so we dont need to worry about that:)

Hi Oyster, thank you very much!! It's a huge improvement!

Can you fix these screws too?

I want to make this better too, because there is a very small picture mapping in the 4k texture file, so only dev can remove the jaggy screws :lol:

This is awsome!!!

Don´t have access to my PC RN, so I can´t check for myself, have you also done the Galland Panzer that´s available as a modification from the G2 on?

As for this, are you sure that this particular texture is 4K? IIRC Jason in one of the discussions on the Yak 9 interior said that some textures are 2k and some are 1k in the same file. Or I could have misunderstood him there of course.

This is the most important mod done so far IMHO. But do not take me wrong, there are many other wonderful mods out there.

Please, keep it coming and think about how to use it mods off. I lack the knowledge to know how to do it in a safe way without replacing the original files.

@Jason_Williams Jason, I know that you don't like we promote mods, but this is a fantastic work where the community helps to build a better sim, since this are only textures (like skin textures) would be possible to incorporate slowly into the sim?

 

Thanks.

 

@Oyster_KAI are you using some sort of AI to rebuild the textures? because you did this pretty fast.

Do I need the command texture ?

Do I need to enable Mods in game?

Yes, it's a powerful tool which can solve many jaggy texture problems
like this

but, there're many things need manually redraw/tweak, like headrest of 109s or nameplate. I'm enjoying making this SIM better!!

Yes, these files affect cockpit gauge or weapon in some planes.

I knew it, its trained by your own? or you can share the secret.

I am struggling to install the mod, I dont see much difference, do I need to enable mods in game?

If you don't enable mods, you won't see anything change. but you can't join most servers in MP, this is why some people asking for official 4K cockpit.
IIRC, the only one mods which can join MP is 3Dmigoto.

Some error in the lableing:

 

Staurohrnog -> Staurohrhzg (abbreviation for Staurohrheizung = pitot tube heater)

 

Verratsmess -> Vorratsmess  (Vorrat = supply, Verrat = treason)

Kraftstoff           Kraftstoff

 

Looking great none the less, keep it up.

P-51D-15 was updated! (0419-2020)

Some key-point in recently work...
p51-0419-1.thumb.jpg.7bf02595c9eed8de354622b62e569e0e.jpg
Convert to 4K is not enough, still need redraw by hand.

 

p51-0419-2.thumb.jpg.8677a387516ee1325f6a72cf24151219.jpg
It doesn't change colors, but more contrast.
I'm planning to enhance leather or chair cushion for all planes.

p51-0419-3.thumb.jpg.b7b2fc774a11ee0ce82c0b2c317324d9.jpg

Again, fixing the jagged poor quality texts. 

SPIT-0419-1.thumb.jpg.44ec79a488dfa9ea34d351562b89a4e5.jpg
Not P-51, another unacceptable jagged texture hiding there.......

Yes please!

 

Some of the earlier textures are not good for the headrest cushions. The La-5 series 8 in particular is very low resolution and could really do with some love.

Seems FC does have 4k instruments but maybe take an overview to the FC intruments as the rev counter on the Dr engine cowling and the rotating speedo meter hanging on the wingstrut, could use some improvement.

@Oyster_KAI, this is truly UN-BE-LIE-VA-BLE !!!

 

One thing the (few) DCS pits had over the WWII warbirds was resolution ... but thanks to you ... IMHO ... not anymore because of this MODs !

I am pretty sure you may even improve on your work and I, personally, hope this major IL-2 improvement will get quite some deserved recognition (BTW, does a.o. SHAMROCKONFIVE from the Stormbirds blog already know about this ?). 

There are *so many very talented* IL-2 contributers and, again IMHO, you sure belong up there with them !

Congrats KAI !
