How to Position Gauges in a Virtual Cockpit and Provide Background Illumination


Hi, I've just added a new tutorial at my site. I'd appreciate if you would read it and see if you understand it. It's a bit long-winded, but has great advantages. The tutorial you are using was mainly from my aircraft that had square gauges with no space between them. The new tutorial provides,
1) Minimum number or Vcockpit sections to maximum framerate,
2) Maximises gauge visual quality.
3) Overcomes the black problem between gauges.
Best thing to do with this method is texture the panel before compiling.
The tutorial is called,
How to Position Gauges in a Virtual Cockpit and Provide Background Illumination.pdf and is on the Tutorial page at Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
I'd appreciate feedback. Bill has seen it and has advised some input from a third party that may simplify the method a little. However, I used this method to the letter and it worked great.
