    I added a reflection of the the center pole into the windshield, made the reds less bright, added some extra shading to areas away from the window, and updated the center gauge + needle. More to be done, but it's getting there!

    Pinging @MattyO. Does this begin to address your feedback? I'd like to hear some thoughts from others as well before I invest more time into this :)

    Would it be possible to shoot for something like this?

    The gauges can be anything that fits in a circle. I was aiming for something a bit more generic, but open to suggestions if most of the guys are running something like that.

    Do these gauge faces help?

    If your doing a black version, plans to reverse image for a white version?

    This is helpful. It appears Cosmin did a good job, even if he was rushed, creating gauges that look like the bottom S-Tech Series.

    I think your own the right track.. Looks much better. Seems like your view is a bit closer to the gauges then mine.. It could be the monitor settings. I like it. Good job!

    I found another issue I'm trying to fix, when your driving behind the wheel and the cars in front are far away the wheels disappear and the looks like the cars are floating. My draw ahead is set to 100%. I thought it I could find the right mips I could change the priority to help.. I'm guessing this might effect.

    You certainly don't need my feedback. You are more than capable to knock this out of the park, I'm am quite sure of that. But yes, I think you are on the right track.
    But it's not only the gauges that needed attention. That whole cockpit could use a makeover (sorry Cosmin).

    Yeah, it does. :p I still have the files for it, so again, if anyone thinks they can update the cockpit and make better objects i can send them the max file. Only thing that they have to keep in mind is the dashboard panel and the car parts have to stay in the same place or the vaules in the script have to be re-done and the parts that get added would float (like the hood, flaps etc) I wish i could re-do the entire rollbar mapping as well tbh, but that's out of reach now. There were more parts planned for the cockpit, but i stopped because my game was crashing with what i had already. Had to resort to texturing it instead. The limitations pissed me off a bit. I had started to model a dashboard switch panel and ignition box.

    IMO I feel like the Water and Oil temp gauges need to be larger and easier to see.

    Gauges are almost done and so are the interior textures. Will post an update tonight after work.

    Finished an update for the interior cockpit textures and gauges.

    Changes:
    • Updated gauges for more a 3d effect and tweaked the layouts of numbers slightly to match some of the reference photos
    • Darker interior gauges
    • Red glow effect on gauge edges when limits are reached
    • Darkened the interior cockpit textures for better contrast with the exterior environment
    • Tweaked shading to better simulate natural light, particularly for areas under the dash
    • Added a subtle window reflection of the center dash post (most noticeable on night tracks)

    Here are the files if anyone wants to give them a try. If @sro_cosmin approves, perhaps they can be added to the mod as official updates. If not, I'd be happy to upload them to the SRD download section as an alternative dash.

    Cheers!
