//Development currently stopped//

This mod add two new cockpits for a more open field of vision, one that removes most parts of the cockpit, and an other that removes it completely.

You can now actually enjoy Space :) .

////// DETAILS //////

The cropped version removes the top, front, left and right side of the visible cockpit, as well as the glass and distorsion effects from the cockpit's window.

The no cockpit version removes all the visible parts of the cockpit for an HUD only experience.

Weapons, ship, event screen and speed bar have been moved to fit the new cockpits.
