Fly the Maddog X cockpit overhaul Hires

A complete overhaul of Leonardo's Fly the maddog X VC cockpit with higher resolution textures as high as 16K or 8K. All textures were not just upscaled but went through several extensive enhancing techniques and softwares with some parts repainted. Got rid of...

! FOR LIVERIES MAKER: YOU MAY REUSE MY FILES IF YOU NEED TO ADD THINGS IN VC (like registration plates for example) SO YOUR LIVERIES DOESN'T CONFLICT WITH MY MOD !

 

This mod is a complete overhaul of the maddog cockpit (only the brown default version) using higher resolution textures that has been enhanced through multiple techniques and softwares for much finer and greater details. Some parts of the VC has even been handmade retextured from scratch where enhancing techniques were not giving acceptable enough results. Bear in mind that I'm not a texture artist though and I've done the best I could so some textures are not yet the best.

It is intended to be a work in progress though.

It comes in two version for optimization purpose: one with highest resolution for some textures not exceeding 8K, the other version with the two most important textures going as high as 16K (which is shown as "main file" here) for extra details and sharpness. Pick one according to your specs (especially VRAM wise) or test the two and see if that impacts your FPS/smoothness.

! DON'T USE BOTH AT THE SAME TIME !

Remember the screenshots here are too compressed and not big enough that you can really see the difference. I assure you it's night and day :) 


 

Installation :

  • Unzip either the 8K or 16K into your community folder, as with any other mod (or using any Addons lnker)
  • Just don't put both into community folder at the same time, they will conflict with each other
  • Enjoy ;) 

 

Almost the entirety of the cockpit has been overhauled but bear in mind 95% is still Leonardo's own textures. They have not been simply upscaled but touched up, cleaned sometimes, redrawn/replaced occasionnaly. However, there are still couples of parts of the cockpit I'm not happy with but would need entire handmade repaint. I'm going to work on it in future versions (like the air masks hose for example, some placards if I can find real pictures etc)

Some PBR works have been added here and there, like now most of the analog gauges have reflections, same for some buttons etc.

I’ve tried only the 8K version and it is no less than 5 stars! Absolutely brilliant! Hope it would also work with the different colored cockpits then this would be worth 6 stars.

Nicely done, beautiful art work the 16k version. But i only could try it on the default leomardo's liverie... but, if i load another liverie (with the brown cockpit) the textures it doesn't apply the new plane. I dont know why, but i think that the problem is the installation order of the mod and the new liverie, could this be my problem?

Sadly it doenst work for me. I deleted the Rolling Chache, installed the 8k Version, used a Livery with a brown Cockpit, but the textures are the same old.

Nice work! Even more significant for VR, where the original poor texture really stands out. No noticeable performance downgrade with 16K in VR (i9 and 3090).

Nice!

Check the landing gear indication lights, i think you miss the texture when the gears are up. On the ground everything is fine. Once retracted they become pink

Thanks! Flew a leg from KLGA to KDCA with 8k no problem. 16K was too much for my i9 and 2080 card. But at 8k there are noticeable and nice differences, thanks!
