While work on the fdm is mostly finished and only small things on the exterior model has have to be done, work on the cockpit of the [[BK 117]] has begun and is in a making good progress. The cockpit will be detailed and make use of photorealistic textures and asa lot of new instruments and panels will be created, this is mostly a modeling challenge. The b1900d-cockpit is guide for the developement to keep the aircraft framerate-friendly. Because of the complex cockpit an own a specific AI-model will be created to keep MP-Users happy.
This developement is also a test for the upcoming [[EC135]]/635-project, which will also have a detailed and accurate cockpit with photorealistic textures.
The images for the textures are taken by the former user and developer heliflyer, who was a an emergency doctor on [[Bo105]], BK117 and EC135 in Northern Germany.
