It's disappointing that this this simple but excellent mod gets so little attention. It's such a simple fix. Needs to be stock.

SQUAD still not fixed it? This mod is still needed?

Fast approaching two years later, I am forced to conclude that the number of KSP players who care about the correctness of the IVA altimeter  -  or indeed even notice the issue  -  is so vanishingly small as to be insignificant.  :(

May be, it's because many users install RPM with digital indicators and RPM-enabled cockpits and patches for stock cockpits. At least those, who care about IVAs.

Yet, sadly, that SQUAD makes such a mistakes and never fixes them.

P.S.

It's not that easy:

Compare those 2 links

Looks like SQUAD mixed the altimeter with very long arm with triangle and with very short thin arm.
