Is there anyway I could find out what a ships cockpit looked like without going into the Cockpit room? I'd like to know because it matter a lot to me what the cockpit looks like and I don't want to spead all my cash on something like a Firespray Class Intercepter or a Tartan Patrol Cruiser just to find out I can't see anyting out the windows.

To see a cockpit of a ship, open up a tab and type in this:

http://img.swcombine.com/ships/xxx/cockpit.gif

xxx is the ship's number, found in the rules pages.

It was suggested that we put cockpits up on the rules pages, this might be implemented in the near future.

Thanks!

But I have encountered a problem, I can't see what the Gozanti Cockpit looks like because I get "http 404 not found" Error. A few other ships do this too. Why is this and how do I find out what the Goz looks like on the inside!

It's the default cockpit. They haven't made a custom for it yet.

Whats the defult cockpit?

defaultCockpit.gif

That's the cockpit all ships and vehicles start off with, until someone creates a new cockpit specifically designed for it.

While I'm on it...how do you veiw the Vehicle Cockpit images?


Year 11 Day 88 23:30
Same as the ships, just replace /ships/ with /vehicles/


Year 11 Day 88 23:31
Cool! Thanks!

Arwell, I may as well ask while I'm at it...Is it possiable to place a custom image for the Cockpit of your ship/vehicle, Like you can for an ships image.

Upload? No. As for CP customs... I dunno. If Jevon responds again, he'll be the one to ask.

At the moment we can't have custom cockpit images. Maybe once custom images become hosted on the SWC site, but thats up to whether the art team want it, and if the coders can put it in.

In the future it might be possible. The only difference would be requiring the code to check for a custom image before showing the default much like custom ships work now, just an added field. The art team would like to get into modeling some new cockpits soon, so we hope to not even require custom cockpits. So this could go either way.

Today Veynom and I changed the rules pages so that ship cockpit images will now show up beneath the large image of the entity, so everyone can see what the cockpit looks like, and artists will be able to easily pick ships to create cockpits for HINT HINT.
