Clear HUD for Su-25A and MiG-29A/G/C


Recommended Posts

IMPORTANT NOTE: DCS Open Beta has rendered this mod obsolete, since ED has finally fixed the reflection problem for these aircraft. The mod no longer works and it's no longer needed, so if you're using DCS or above, this mod isn't for you!



I got tired of the sight / HUD reflections of the Su-25A and MiG-29A/G/C, so I decided to do something about it.


Since I couldn't find existing mods for these aircraft types, I created my own.


These mods allow the user to remove sight / HUD reflections on the Su-25A and MiG-29A/G/C, making them completely transparent.


I'm now sharing them with the community, I hope some of you will find them useful! ;)

Thanks for the effort.


I prefer the original as it brings the immersion that you can't see all so well, and need to work around the problem.


But I so dislike about the current cockpit lighting limitation for the static reflections!

Those should really be dynamic, so when you move in VR, your reflections moves. And when you change lighting angle, the reflections changes as well.


It is so annoying that those reflections are just textures on the glass surfaces.

When flying these planes, pilots are already forced to work around several important deficiencies, it makes no sense to add ridiculous HUD reflections to the list.


Take the fulcrum, for instance, it has no DataLink, no fly-by-wire, carries subpar R77 missiles (compared to AMRAAM and SD10), has inferior RWR and modest fuel capacity.

While the fulcrum's potential rivals in the sky (hornet, viper, eagle, tomcat) don't suffer from this HUD reflection problem, carry better missiles, have Datalink (or similar) and better RWR.





Glad you liked it

Thanks for the mod Hardcard!


I am sure many people is gonna be glad you share it with us.


Like Fri13, I also feel that I would prefer to have at least "something" in the reflection, specially in the SU-25A. Do not ask me why... I just feel that something is missing, for the MiG seems good to me, I guess is just a matter of personal preference... :]


Some real time reflection "a baked cockpit spherical map" or something done in a smart/not heavy performance impact, would be just the thing that cockpits are missing...:noexpression:


*Also, ED PLEASE, fix this exterior model inside cockpit (texture flat color) in the SU-25A. It has been a while, I can not wait for this to happen... :cry:

Ok, ok, I get it... you're masochists :lol:


There, I've created Lite versions with increased reflection transparency and included them in the mods, for those of you who can't live without reflections ;)
