Enhanced cockpit concept [Abandoned]

Enhanced vanilla small ship cockpit with upgrade blocks for LCDs and light inside. Works best with field of view 70. Dx11 friendly.

Get bored from the same display texture ? Ever dreamed about working displays in cockpit ? Now you can try them, in this "wanna-be-compound" cockpit :) Cockpit consists from 7 blocks, cockpit block itself, and 6 upgrade blocks, which you need to place into fore part of cockpit model.

It's equal to vanilla cockpit, except base model is 2x3x3 and amount of components. I decided to split components between two blocks (base and interior), but added steel plates to keep same durability as vanilla one. Same goes for lcds blocks, but they are twice weaker. As downside my cockpit is heavier than vanilla, I could make a new custom component for it, but is it really worth it ?

Base cockpit don't have interior model, you must use it with combo of any Interior upgrade blocks for it. I made it this way to support both dx9 and dx11 versions.

Side 2in1 LCD in fact is one splitted LCD block. Upper part is for left display, bottom part is for right one.

Parts are colorable, so you can make two color cockpit. Survival ready.

Feel free to comment what you like and what you don't.
Suggestions and tips are welcome :)
Enjoy :)

New upgrade blocks has arrived (with reworked some) + some fixes, and improvments.

Blocks and functions:
ECC_Cockpit_Base - the cockpit itself.

ECC_Upgr_Interior_Trunk - reworked light block is now a cargo container, equal to 3 small containers, allows to use front conveyor port.
ECC_Upgr_Interior_Sound - sound block that was made prior to recent cockpit update, front conveyor port won't work with it.
ECC_Upgr_Interior_Oxygen - small oxygen generator, with severely scaled down inventory and productivity for balance, less efficient than normal generator. allows to use front conveyor port.

ECC_Upgr_Light - a new block for cockpit light.
ECC_Upgr_LCD_Top_Mid - replacement of light with LCD, usable in combo with ECC_Upgr_LCD_Top_2in1

ECC_Upgr_LCD_Central - same as before.
ECC_Upgr_LCD_Sides_2in1 - same as before.
ECC_Upgr_LCD_Left_Side - separate lcd for left side
ECC_Upgr_LCD_Right_Side - separate lcd for right, use it in combo with left one, will overlap with 2in1 side lcd.

ECC_Upgr_LCD_Top_2in1 - a new overhead lcd, splitted in two
ECC_Upgr_LCD_Top_Central - another one overhead, single one.

obsolete now, as LCD screens are now a part of all cockpits.

I've uploaded a version which fixes most of the major bugs and adds a couple of new LCD options.

Is this can run in 2017? Pls update :'(

@HappySushi is there any chance you'd be willing to share your original files for this mod (specifically any fbx models for importing to Blender) so I could try and fix up some of the most broken parts to get it updated? I'd send you the files to update this mod if you want, or post it separately with all credits to you and a link to this page, whichever you prefer. This is the only small ship cockpit I use and it'd be a real loss to the game if it falls out of working condition.

@[~FTI~] Joakkino[ITA] The cockpit textures still work for you? After 1.180.1, they completely broke for me.

If you wanna use this mod in abandoned status, you have to:
1) remove it from the active mod list, load savegame and save it;
2) go back to main menu, put the mod back and load game.
It has some issues like ALL UPPER LCDs make the game crash (CTD) and if you go a bit far and look at the cockpit, it will become violet colored; if you go near again, it comes back to the original color.

HappySushi, I hope you will be back soon with this mod <3

Edit after some checks:
Game wont load anymore at current 1.180 game version (and prev ver too); once removed the mod, your cockpits simply disappears and game loads up fine.
Again, i try to play SE without this mod, but i feel so sad. It will miss so much :(

Quote Kham.
This is still one of the best and most useful mod in SE. It's a big pity you decided to abandone it. I hope with all my essence that one day you wanna bring it up again, making lots of us happy.
This is a MUST HAVE mod in my mod list. Idk how could i do without it now....
Anyway, I think this has corrupted my savegame; but i'm glad i used it untill now.
If only this could work: SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY :D :D :D

I still love this mod, it's the only cockpit mod I can't live without so thanks for leaving it up. The only issue is with the LODs which, personally, I can live with.
