    @JamesDean yeah don't use the alpha method you're describing. The HUD page has many different alpha inputs, for example each rung of the pitch ladder needs to disappear once it has reached a certain height. Stick with having unique variables for each page. It seems to be the simplest method.

    @fpvrick7 I had just earlier yesterday posted in the forum on how to cycle through multiple "screens" on the MDU. I had suspected variable sets for each, and you confirmed it with this. Working to make the brightness buttons alter the emission level of the text, but that's proving buggish

    @fpvrick7 I love the cockpit! I spend 90% of my time playing, upgrading the interiors to planes I like. Yours is very functional, do you mind if I take and continue your work? Credit always where it's due

    This is absolutely top-notch! How on earth did you have the patience for making this cockpit?! It’s practically photorealistic …

    Besides I really love the smooth and sleek shape of the airframe. Hat’s off, sir!
