Here a compiled pack of my work for instruments in ROF's cockpits.

http://www.mediafire...d7j5uxcw4p5o68q

It's a pack made for use with JSMGE.

Simply unzip it in ROF main directory.

For my complete modpack containing this and other mods, see here:
http://www.checksix-...ad.php?t=170456

But it is a pack made for French players, there is no English translation.

First a correction of diverse bugs in some cockpits instruments:

1) On French SPADS, the oil pressure indicator should read "MANOMETRE" and not "MANOMETR"
BEFORE: 2013331214318.jpg
AFTER:
2013427165435.jpg

2) On the French airspeed indicator of the SPAD XIII, the red marking should read "VITESSES A 5000M" instead of "VITESSES AU 5000M"
BEFORE:
2013427164539.jpg

AFTER:
2013427181419.jpg

3) On the British air pressure indicator, the unit should be "LBS (per square inch) and not "LES", as shown here in the SE5a. This bug affects the Bristol F2B, the DH2, the DH4, the Felixstowe, the Handkey Page HP 0/400, the Sopwith Camel and Dolphin.
BEFORE:
2013427164412.jpg

AFTER:
2013427164847.jpg



And my work for "nationalized" cockpits of French aircrafts used by the Brits and Italian, or French instruments instead of British instruments

- British instruments for Nieuport 11(used by RNAS), SPAD VII 150 and 180 HP, SPAD XIII (used by RFC)

2013427165517.jpg

- Italian license-made tachometer for Nieuport XI and XVII
2012115115722.jpg

- French instruments for the Nieuport 17 "GBR version"
2013330162925.jpg

- correct knots airspeed indicator for the Felixstowe (mph ASI were not used on naval planes):

Your work is outstanding, J.J. I am sorry that I spammed you with my unmitigated 235 HP SPADocolypse. That is all in the past, for you, J.J. Well, after this post, anyway. I already mentioned the thing, so too late here. SPA…Well, you know… ;)

Very nice work!…

edit… the Spad 13 speedo is not working on the British gauges mod. It has no 'needle' indicator.
I noticed in the file it does not contain an 'swf' file, is this correct mate?

That's because British flyers don't use kmh speedometer :D
No, just kidding, that was a mistake I forget to correct in the pack (but I did it in my own install).

I'll update a fix asap.
FIX uploaded.

And Berrymore, yes, it works only with MODS enabled.

While I think it's a great mod and I actually use it myself in my mods on career, I hope it won't, because these changes still don't 100% represent actual gauges (they wouldn't just have different dials, they would also be different shapes and sizes).

A new airspeed indicator for the Felixstowe. As all the British manned seaplanes by sailors, it normally had a knots airspeed indicator. But it is not the case in ROF, we have a mph indicator (perhaps it was done that way to gain time and release it faster).
Some pics showing the real instrument to come, and screenshots of my in-game version.

At least now we can have a proper Spider web campaign thanks ot Prangster!

It seems on RNAS Strutter there were different instruments than the instruments we have in the ingame Strutters right now:

Image

A knots airspeed indicator. Also what are the instruments on the left? Altimeter above and tachometer on the botton left hand corner? They look different with what we have in game.

And, correct me if I'm wrong, but the Strutter bomber type 9700 we have in game was not used operationnally by the RFC/RAF? Only by RNAS? So we should have for this plane by default a knots indicator, no?

I will add new things to this mod:

- correct French speedometer for Nieuport 17 with Lewis gun (which is working and showing the correct speed, maybe later I'll try to correct the British speedometer bug).
- knots airspeed indicator option for both Strutters.
- complete set of French instruments for both Strutters.

With so many variants and with the planes being used by several different countries' air services, it's not surprising that some examples of dials would be different from the ones used by the devs in their versions.

I can't really blame the devs for settling on one version for the release, but I love your work in making alternate versions available. Fortunately, with JSGME it's not too difficult to swap them in and out of the game depending upon which country I'm flying for at any given time.

Keep 'em coming, please :S!:

Some pictures of the current work done:

French instruments for the French Sopwith Strutters: altimeter, anemometer (showing correct airspeeds at 2000m and 4000m, it is a modified version of the Nieuport 17 field mod one), clock, tachometer, Caudron manometers, some French stencils and markings added. I may delete the British markings for the release version, I don't know yet.

Bonus using the work done on the Strutters: correct French anemometer for the Nieuport 17 GBR, now all the instruments of this plane are redone for the metric system.

Image

Another bonus option , for the Strutters used by the RNAS (and I think the Strutter B we have in game used only this speedometer operationnally): knots graduated speedometer.

I'm confused - I thought tachometers were for measuring/displaying RPMs, not speeds - if so, why would a tachometer be using knots instead of RPMs?

Ooops, corrected. My aeronautical english is not so good… I meant speedometer, tachometer is the instrument counting the rpm.

I've added the Felixstowe Speedometer in Knots mod package to my favorite mods page.  I've also fixed the first couple of links in J.j.'s original post above (they got broken during the forum software changeover a couple of years or so ago).  I've D/L'ed the first package he mentioned in that first post and checked it to see if it has anything different/later from the versions I have on my favorites page - it didn't, and it didn't have anything in it for the Strutters.  I'm wondering if maybe he just never got around to finishing and posting those last few changes.  At any rate, if he did, I can't find them.

I have not been able to find any completely reliable formula/method for fixing the old links - I've been able to fix many of them manually, but although it works many times it's not always successful and I'm not sure why.  There are way too many of them for me to spend time trying to fix them all, but if there's any of them specifically that you'd like addressed I'll certainly give it a try.

 

And of course I can't do anything about the images (like the ones in several of the posts above) that are simply not still available at the external/third party locations they were originally in when they were posted back then.
