Anyone know what is needed to modify the F3 hud / helper? i have altered the cab camera views on most of my loco's to view all the gauges, but i still need the F3 display on to see speed limit changes and so on (i have a problem with short term memory, so i can't simply learn the routes that easily) i have the mod from rail-sim.de that brightens the text on the F3 display... it also gives some german bits to it (speed is indicated as V, and Vsoll for line speed.. my german isnt good enough to work out the V bit... speed translates to geschwindigkeit, do they use the term Velocity?) But, being german loco's they mostl have the double row of indicator lights at the base of the MFA which the F3 display covers, hence the rail-sim.de mod, you can set the transparancy really low, and still read the text as it's been brightened, But i'd love to find out how to modify the actual f3 hud / display components and not just the text. i made this little drawing up of a supposedly simple hud component... of course as usual i tried to show way too much info in a small space : The idea is to have just the left hand component of the existing F3 hud, get rid of the track display that stretches to the right of it, move the control status displays and speed info into the left hand part of the hud, and move some data from the track pictogram to text. The kind of things that need displaying are (only in my mind, this is probably horrible to anyone who drives a steamer, diesel or non german loco) distance to next station... already present on left display time of arrival... already present on left display next speed limit change, and distance to it gradient up or down the usual loco speed and current line speed throttle / notch setting, brake setting, and, forward, cab only, off and reverse the warning displays.. if possible SIFA and the PZB warnings, handy if you use another view Traction current, maybe overhead line voltage to show if panto is down.. possibly motor temp? brake system status: main pipe pressure, equalising tank pressure, brake cylinder pressure? The above 2 lines are already on gauges in the cab, but again, usefull on the hud if out of the cab All this info is already present in the sim, some of it on the F5 hud, some on the F3 and 4 displays.. obviousely some loco's / trains dont use all the systems.. like EQ pressure, motor temp and that. and of course i am basing this only on driving german electric loco's as thats what i like to drive. But a big part of this would be to make this new hud / display moveable, so you can drag it to a position where it doesnt interfere with your view and controls / indications in the cab.
