RISE OF FLIGHT AIRCRAFT COCKPIT GALLERY

While working on a screenshot project I ended up sitting in all of the ROF cockpits. Sometimes it's easy to forget how much beautiful artwork exists in the form of ROF cockpits. Truly great work that very few flight-sims can match. I figured I would highlight them here in the forum in their own gallery as tribute to all who have helped make them and the community that helps make them possible. Seeing them all in one thread is quite stunning. Wouldn't you agree? So simple by today's standard, yet state of the art 100 years ago. A look back in time.

Yepp, some beautiful shots of some great work of art!

Alas, a little hick-up has happened, labeling the D.XII cockpit wrongly as D.IIIa.

Edit: Fixed. :-)

Thanks for these!

There need to be links to these on the store pages for each plane, I think. When I was deciding which planes to buy, I REALLY wanted to know what kind of view each one offered. I ended up watching some YouTube videos to make up my mind. (And then I bought all the planes anyway, lol.)

Without the field mods…this is perhaps my favourite cockpit. It's so bare, but the textures are really well done…with perfect weathering applied…..

Time well spent taking these! Every time I start ROF I realize what a beautiful flight sim it is and how hard it is to fly anything else.

Very nice Jason! I just got off the MP server. The last sortie I was flying a SPAD XIII and really had to move my head sideways out of the cockpit to track a bogey. It's so good to find all details are there as well, looking along the machine gun over the cowling.

Yep, the cockpit models now change depending on the weapon mod(s) enabled. Very cool. :)

Yes - the cockpits are definitely a work of art. Lacking a little in the science of ergonomics though. I think that the Spad and Albatros designers were having a competition to see who could put the fuel gauge in the most awkward place. Meanwhile, the R.F.C. went for the simple 'glass tube that you know is going to get hit by the first bullet' option, to give their pilots one more incentive to be alert. And then there is the cunning 'airspeed indicator you need binoculars to read' and 'hide the compass' layout for Hun pilots - presumably they were supposed to be too busy shooting at the enemy to have time to look at instruments.

On the subject of the 'Sopwith Aquatic Mammal', does it just stop dead in the air when you fire all the guns at once Jason, or does it actually fly backwards? ;)

Mammal?? more like a Bloody Ani-mammal :o
When some get captured can Central have sets of those upward pointing guns?
And sets of wing mounted guns on a DFW..pleeease??

Nice work on the cockpit!
I hope the Dolphin will be able to fly with 2 Vickers and 2 wing Lewis, not just with 2 or with 6.
