Cockpit Cloak

  • description Description

    Now updated for Atlas Rises! I've extended functionality to the new exotic ships, and fully hidden all new cockpit elements, so we're back in business!

    Notice: the download button now redirects to a direct download from NexusMods. I will be doing this for all of my mods going forward, as NexusMods provides better tools to modders, in my humble opinion. I will also primarily focus on comments there, so if you've any issues, please post comments there. Thanks!

    That aside, this is an incidental duplicate of Disable Cockpits. Where it rescales the interior, I remove texture calls and with Atlas Rises, rescale certain fixed elements, such as the new holomap. So the end effect is the same, despite different approaches.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hey there! Last time I lit things up a little, but this time I'm opening our eyes a tad! With this mod (as an indirect request from Kyle Culver [@Kulver], who makes lovely videos), I've hidden the cockpit's interior by removing the calls to its textures*! It's perhaps not the most graceful way it could have been done, but it gets the job done.

    *-I have not removed the TEXTURES folder. Each object in the game has to make calls to its specific textures through its scene files. If you locate the attributes where these calls are made, you can remove them and thus prevent the game from calling any textures, producing an invisible mesh, as demonstrated above.

    I'm hopeful that this mod will enable our mini-filmmakers in the community to capture even more thrilling videos, as now they can view the 'verse unobstructed.

    As before, many thanks goes to Monkeyman192 for MBINCompiler, and a ton of thanks goes to WinderTP, who shared their save with me, enabling me to test and ensure this worked as intended with every ship type. Also, many thanks go to Kremit who helped me sort out hiding the holomap!
