VPHUD (Virtual Pilot Head-Up Display)
What is VPHUD?
Have you ever felt the need to look at the aircraft fixed gauges, because it had no HUD?
Have you ever crashed your aircraft because you were distracted looking at such gauges?
Have you ever wished the Advanced Flight Model GUI existed in the Standard Flight Model?
If that's your case then I'm glad to tell you that VPHUD seeks to solve all those problems and wishes you ever had before.
VPHUD is a seamless addon that adds two virtual gauges to all aircraft which do not have native HUD support.
An Artificial Horizon to help you understand when your airplane is upside down, or if you're landing your helicopter perfectly leveled.
A Vertical Speed Indicator to give you crucial information if the landing you're attempting to make is too harsh for your aircraft to handle.
Some other misc information is also available such as height from surfaces (not ground terrain) and speed.
How it works?
As mentioned before, the addon works seamlessly without the need for any configuration.
All you have to do is get in a aircraft as pilot, and the VPHUD will pop up immediatly.
At the left will show up the Vertical Speed Indicator and at the right the Artificial Horizon.
Aircraft that have built-in HUDs will not make VPHUD appear.
To install VPHUD (Virtual Pilot Head-Up Display) you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page
for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
None that I'm aware. Lemme know if you find any.
Yes, the altitude bar sometimes getting behind the Vertical Speed Indicator is a expected behaviour.
Currently only ARMA3 native aircraft are filtered, I seek to extend the filtering to other mods such as CUP and RHS. (By filtering I mean VPHUD not showing up for aircraft that have native HUD.)
A settings menu to adjust the VPHUD ingame to your needs and liking, such as position and scale.
Another VPHUD styling that replicates real aircraft HUDs.
