Yes. HCl already did a bunch of experimenting with replacing ships and cockpits. I'm not sure if you can really change the resolution of the cockpit art though without increasing the resolution of the entire game though:I wonder how far this could potentially go. Could cockpits be updated?
It would be a shame to find that at optimum combat range, enemy ships are distorted due to downscaling.
so, the thing would be increase the texture, memory and resolution limit so the game wouldn't crash
