HUD request

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Firstly before making a request would like to say what a great job you have done/are doing with the Mirage. It's one of the most feature complete out there and I really like its little complexities FM seems to be getting more and more realistic by the updates and it looks and sounds great.

But I have a request that I'm really hoping you will look at. The HUD glass at the top just doesn't look right to me. I'm not sure if anyone else will agree? But I feel it's a shame as the rest of the cockpit looks so good. Would love to see it textured to look like glass similar to say EDs L-39?

 

Thanks for all your efforts Razbam. :)

Been wondering about it the other day, but I think the shape is roughly correct, it's mostly the angle that makes it look weird in game: http://s304.photobucket.com/user/lrfoga/media/Mirage%202000C/newpicture3k.png.html

The shape is correct but not correctly rendered though DCS engine, and the texture alpha need some tweaks. I already explained what is the problem: The 3d mesh is not rendered double-sided, only "front" oriented faces are rendered (which is a normal 3D engine behavior for non-transparent objects), but a glass is transparent, so you should also see the "back" oriented faces.

 

There is two possible workaround to correct this at developpers/3d artist level (for the users only texture tweaks are possible):

 

- if the DCS rendering engine 3D mesh import/export support it, tagging the glass 3d mesh as "double-sided".

 

or (if DCS engine does not supports or know any double-sided tag)

 

- Cloning the 3d mesh (of the hud glass) to have two 3d meshs, exactly at the same place with the same shape, but revert the normals (or vertices order) of one of the two version, so the rendering engine always draws both front and back faces.

Really hope Razbam will look into it.

We will look into it.
