windows is so dark, and i think you need to do mk1 sized mi-8 cockpit because it's not very giant helicopter

It's true, though there are various reasons why I didn't make it an Mk1. It's useful to have a Size 2 Viewer's cockpit. The engine of Mi-8 is also made for Size 2. It contains a cargo bay behind which is useless in an Mk1, and I can make a cargobay for 2.5m. I've also overloaded the Mk1 cockpits. So it's better to distribute the sizes.

but can you do both versions of mi-8 cockpit? (because mi-8 is common trasport heli) helicopter, and i think for cargo heli you should need to do Mi-26 or Mi-6 for 2,5 or MK-3 size

Unfortunately not, like I said, Mk1 as of this moment is done already. You can still use Mi-8 on size 2 as a transport helicopter as there is a transport cabin already out. There are other cockpits for Mk1 to use. In fact, there are 2 helicopter cockpits for Mk1 already.
Aside from these reasons, Making an Mk-1 cockpit would mean I'd have to remake a smaller iva and reconfigure the props and everything. There would also be no Mi-8 rotors so I have to do a size for Mk-1 already. That's why Mi-8 will be settled in Size 2.

I love this mod and I really appreciate all the effort you put into it, but... I am wondering if you could make these gorgeous parts TweakScale-able (Except for the cockpits and crew modules)? It would make all of those parts extra useful! :wink:

Oh also here is one of my recent crafts that I made using your wonderful mod :)

Dev update at last. It's been a while since I got to work but I've finished the last part I want to have for the next update. I'll be tending configs to fix everything I remember and will soon have a release ready version.

Welcome to the forums! @SufficientAnonymity made some RPM configs a while back and I finally got around to packaging them and writing a mm.cfg to autoswitch the internal from the stock one to the RPM one. Go to the link below, download it, put the stuff in the Spaces folder into /GameData/AirplanePlus/Spaces and put the APP_RPM.cfg file anywhere within /GameData. Make sure you have ModuleManager installed. There are currently no RPM internals for either of the size 2 cockpits (Droopnose and Commercial).

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/q2l9n7x8a44ar5x/AAArbJbUL3LTwbVYn4NAs2Tba?dl=0

@SufficientAnonymity would you mind making RPM internals for the 2 cockpits that currently don't have any?

@blackheart612 would you mind adding these to the next release?

Will do, but a bit snowed under with some big shoots to retouch at the moment.

Well, here she is. My attempt at an Mi-8 replica.

My only issue is the controllability of the aircraft with the rotors from this mod. Whilst the aircraft is in flight, the controls feel quite sluggish and unresponsive. I have taken to using the rotors from KRX, as they have just the right amount of power (I know .cfg files can be changed, having made a few changes to the thrust of the AP+ rotors). 

Apologies if this seems overly negative, 'tis my honest review of the rotors in this mod.

Keep up the great work! :wink:

@Aerospacer Not yet, I was quite busy so I just updated as soon as I can to fix stuff.

@StereotypicalBrit I have a feeling the responsiveness is due to the RPM mechanic of FS. Though I'll take a look at engine response time. If you think the rotors are weak, how do you think can it be rebalanced?

@rmasc91 Wait for me to patch it, probably in under more or less 24hrs because I forgot to add a hatch :P I'm taking a short break to play another game for now. So no dev updates yet.

In the mean time if you want to do so yourself just adjust the maxThrust = line in the rotor cfg

Coming along nicely. I pimped up the F16 cockpit with some ASET/RPM love. A little more work left such as gear/flaps levers, a few buttons more and fine tweaks. Also, the fix for the hex codes on the HUD is hopefully here soon.
-Not trying to make an authentic F16 cockpit whatsoever, just one that works.

@TMasterson5

Rotor buff was needed, thanks!

i also wanted to say, maybe you should check how propeller engines work if you get lot of free time; Propellers should produce almost no thrust when they get to their critical max speed instead of stopping. They should work normally, but produce no thrust.
