GWX3 Rafael DSK GUI (updated)

UPDATED VERSION: July 15, 2010.

GWX 3.0 Rafael DSK GUI (updated).

Below some images. Now you have the option to play GWX 3.0 with BIG dials and a new bottom and side menu.

One thing I really missed a long time in SH3, was the ability to have precise and big dials for the main steering of the U-Boat.



That main steering is the most important thing in a simulation, what genre ever, which were really to small, to inaccurate, to uncomfortable and really to "arcade looking" in my opinion.










The menu is a pop-in and pop-out type, all dials and TDC-dials are always on hand. Furthermore your navigation map has been changed too.

And there is much more ... just drag the rudder pointer to a new course.
See the bearing indicator (small texture) on top of your compass!



The binocular with hands:

Binocular with hands and bearing indicator because GWX has disabled it.
In my opinion that is no step backward in realism, because in real life you would have a 'feeling' in which direction you would look.

I don't have that feeling watching a screen and using my mouse.

Adjust precise speed and set course and know your bearing.

Happy Hunting!

Default This is excellent

The most important to me is the compass. Thank you very much for this mod.

If it helps, easy enough to download the mod and just take the binoculars file from it to use elsewhere.

This gui is for resolution 1024x768
If it is to be used for another resolution, the binocular tga must be revised
Also on the menu.ini

Not always. I.e., with the 1366/768 gui I use I replaced the binocular file with the stock one and it works fine. Just swapped the .tga files.
