  4. F-89 Scorpion Pack for SF2

    F-89 Scorpion Pak for SF2 6/4/2010
     
    -- Version 2, 3/3/2016 --
     
    This package includes the full set of F-89 Scorpions, from MontyCZ's original C & D version, PLUS the variant mods I'd created, giving the H, J (Early) and J (Late). The various readmes for the sub-variants are included in their specific aircraft folder, just for historical purposes.
     
    This package has been peaked and tweeked for use in SF2 =ONLY=, and is NOT designed for use on SF/Wo* series 1st Gen sims. It makes use of certain elements found ONLY, and usable ONLY, in SF2.
     
    Everything is included -aircraft, inis, skins, decals, weapons, pilots. =EXCEPT= a cockpit. Due to changes in SF2's internal coding, these aircraft now make use of the stock in-game F-4B via ini edits that through sorcery now reach back into the cat files, and create usable cockpits without the need of a cockpit folder. How this works, I don't know or care; but that it =does= is a wonderful thing!!
     
    On such aircraft that have operating canopies (those that use the F-89D lod), the canopy works via the Standard Manual Animation Keystroke ™, shift/0.
     
    This package is designed to REPLACE the original set, and will drop right over it, providing you have it already. If you don't, no worries! Just install as normal.
     
    As always the standard, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. Please READ them!
     
    Good Hunting!

  5. Lockheed U-2A for SF2


    Lockheed U-2A


     
     

    =For SF2 (any and all merge levels)


     
    *Note: as I'm not fully sure if "Dragon Lady" applies to this early model, I didn't add the name*.
     
    This is a slight overhaul of Pasko/Column5's Lockheed U-2A recon plane. This is a full aircraft pak, with a modified cockpit. All new serial number decals have been created, historcally accurate for the USAF version, and those discoverable for CIA usage (US civil N-series). Both the original skins (NM and 'dark gray') are included. A new SF2-style hangar screen is included, as is Pasko's "PilotU2" , dressed in the 1950s style pressure suit.
     
    The flight model feels pretty good in SF2, considering it hasn't been tweeked since 2005, but the aircraft is NOT a fighter, so don't expect massive manuverabililty. Other ini tweek remove some unneeded cockpit bits, add an audio-only RWR (couldn't find any info if A-models had jammer suites), landing lights, and a working Driftsight (ie: downward looking periscope). A destroyed model has also been assigned, for SF2 users.
     
    As always, =READ= the enclosed readme for full, detailed instructions. This package has been broken down into the various folders that SF2 needs/requires/should have, to make it a LOT easier to install. Also, as usual, the expected 'Notes and Other Nonesense' comments by me.
    You should pay special attention to the "Flying the U-2" sections below, as it explains the use of the 'driftsight' and other things you'll need to know for correctly flying recon missions in this bird.
     
    It is also highly likely this mod can be used in 1stGen SF/Wo* with minimal adjustments -- as 08 level game also use the /Decals subfolder, this should pose no issue whatsoever. Some data ini adjusment of the landing gear rolling radi may be necessary. Since I don't mod 1stGens anymore, this was not tested.
     
    And yes, for those that look for such things, there are 2 Easter Eggs in the cockpit (actually, 3, but one seems to have disappeared!).
     
    Happy Landings!

  7. P-2H "Neptune" Skins/Decals and Ini Update Pak


    P-2H "Neptune" Skins/Decals and Ini Update Pak


     

    -- For SF2, Any & All --


     
    This is a mod of the original P-2H (P2V-7) released by Tracker and the Argentine Modders Group, incorporating some tweeks perfomred by ChampionsVA56
    You do NOT need to original download, but if you want the COAN skins, you'll need it to add them.
     
    All inis, lods, etc, and 3 new skin and decal sets are provided. The inis have been 'adjusted' back to original USN state, with a completely new UserList.ini, descripting the different countries that used this late-model Neptune. (NOTE: RAF is not listed, as they used only earlier models, with the gun turrets. Hopefully, I also got the users & years farily close, too)
     
    Skins included in this set are:
     
    VP-18 "Flying Phantoms", NAS Jacksonville as seen during the Cuban Missile Crisis
     
    VP-65 "Tridents", NAS Point Magu, in the mid/late 1960s through the 1970s
     
    VP-69 "Totems", NAS Whidbey Island, in the 1970s *
     
    (* revamped version of pappychksix's, now with decals)
     
    All new decals are included, many with historically matching BuNums-to-Modex numbers (wherever possible, and the information was discoverable). The Basic Skins ™ for the USN Gull Gray/White and Seaplane Gray and White, can be used for many other countries, simply by creating new skin folders, copying the relevant files, and creating new textureset and decals inis that reference the proper markings and nationality.
     
    A new weapon is included; the Mk.44 lightweight torpedo (note: it needs a new lod, as it's using the Mk.13 which is too long, but it works just fine!!). Loadouts have been corrected, with some reengineering of mounting points. Not perfect, but very workable.
    Other ini edits use Champ's landing gear & light fix, and I've replaced the pilot figures with the stock 'Prop_Pilot' with the baseball cap. The engine sound has also been replaced, and supplied. It's not what I consider a perfect match, but it's seems what should be farily close.
     
    As always, =READ= the enclosed readme for full, detailed instructions. This package has been broken down into the various folders that SF2 needs, to make it a LOT easier to install.
     
    Warning Note: If installing fresh, do not use the original download;s inis, use these =ONLY=!!! If/when installing the COAN skins, use =ONLY= the skins, and nothing else!! You will mess things up severly, and have to start completly over.
     
    Happy Landings!

  8. B-58A Huster for SF Upgrade/Update Pak

    B-58A "Hustler"
     
    -- For SF2, Any and All --
     
    This is a modification of Pasko's B-58 Hustler, to bring it more in line with SF2 standards.
    If you have the 2009 SF2 Update, just install this directly OVER your pre-existing folders, allowing the overwrite. If you don't, don't worry about it.
     
    Two skins are included (the same basic skin used twice), with all new 100% Historicaly Correct ™ serial numbers, listing each operational aircraft that served with the 43rd and 305th Bomb Wings. Unfortunatly, I was unable to break them down each into which served with each of the 6 Squadrons in the 2 Wings, but this should do nicely.
     
    There are also 2 cockpits included:
    The original SF2 mod by Dave (USAFMTL), that uses the F-106 pit and,
    An extensivelly modified F-4 Phantom pit (stock 3W ini only -as the cockpit exists in all versions of the game). This one makes use of many 'moves' to drop items out if sight, and uses the physical external model for the windshield framing.
    Neither one is perfect ... this is elaborated further in the "Notes" section, with instructions on what to switch or turn off in the various inis; depending on which you choose. Right now, it's using the Phantom pit, as it really is quite a bit closer than the 106's.
     
    In the Loadout ini, several alternate loadouts are listed. These can be accessed from the 3rdWire mission editor screen (for post-Expansion Pak 2 users). Other ini edits repositon the running & landing lights, add 'virtual' flaps (as this aircraft made use of drooping elevons -without the original source file this is impossible to duplicate-), minor engine adjustments, and avionics tweeks. It could also stand a slightly improved FM; the changes and other comments are in the "Notes" section. Weapons are included, the nuke explosion effects are =NOT=. YOu should probably have them from the GunnyPak. Speaking of weapons, a "new" 8kt ARM is included; this is a fictional ARM version of the Genie, more in line with "Fail Safe" and the No.6 Decoy/EW/Escort aircraft, and gives you a SEAD load. Kill SAM sites DEAD!!! Since real decoys don't/can't exist....it's just for fun! There's also and EO version, that can be used for STRIKE or SEAD missions.
     
    As always, =READ= the enclosed readme for full, detailed instructions. This package has been broken down into the various folders that SF2 needs/requires/should have, to make it a LOT easier to install. Also, as usual, the expected 'Notes and Other Nonesense' comments by me. This =IS= Required reading -- there are some issues that are addressed there.

  9. F7U-3M Cutlass by Marcfighters

    Vought F7U-3M Cutlass (by Marcfighters)
    - For SF2 (Any and All, but Full-4 Merged Prefered) -
     
    This is an upgrade to the F7U Pak I released in 2008, and like the original, still a sort of Beta (Minus). This is simply because the aircraft model is/was NOT finished by Marcello. Details as to this rating are enumerated in the 'ori-2008_f7u_readme.txt' included.
     
    It's suggested for a Full-4 merged, although it can be used in any version that has access to the F-4B, as that cockpit is referenced, and the A-4's 300 gallon drop tank. These should be available in all versions, perhaps excepting SF2I, as that lacks the F-4B as stock.
     
    Several ini tweeks move this a little closer (well, in that respect) for SF2. For the change list, see the "Notes" section below.
     
    2 skins/decal are included:
     
    VA-116 (Gull Gray/White, from the original pak)
    VF-124 (new, in 'natural metal')
     
    I've also included the skin templates, just in case someone might want them (and IMPROVE them!!). Also included is the AIM-7A Sparrow & AIM-9A Sidewinder from the GunnyPak (in case you ain't go it). All other weapons/drop tanks used are stock in-game items.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them .... I've also included my original readme from the 2008 release -- might want to give a read. It states what's what with this, and why it's classed as a "Beta Minus" release, even now. So, again, please read it.

  10. Cessna O-1E BirdDog Upgrade Pak -for 3rdWire O-1E-

    Cessna O-1E BirdDog Pak -for 3rdWire O-1E-
    = For SF2, Any and All
     
    = Please Note: this is =NOT= a full aircraft mod. The LOD files are =NOT= included, as they are propritery of 3rdWire, and cannot be shared. So ... you =MUST= have one of the original 1stGen games - SFP1, WoV or WoE to extract the 4 needed LOD files from their Objects.cat. Instructions are in the 'To Install' section. =
     
    This is a major overhaul of the stock, 1stGen O-1E BirdDog with a new, functioning cockpit, 4 skins and all new historically accurate serial numbers (albeit generic in nature, representing no particular unit; even the Canadian ones)
     
    The skins are:
     
    RCAF/CF CO-119 by ext (iirc)
    OD Green by ???
    USAF white (stock)
    Pakistani Army Green (based on above, from Indo/Pak mod)
     
    The RCAF/CF skin has all new decals, matching those used by Canada (*please seen "Notes" below for more on the CF serials*).
    The OD Green skin from ?? has the "US Army" tag remade new, replacing that from my ancient L-19 mod, that was in the wrong font.
    The USAF skin uses stock decals, as it has always done (F-100 serials).
    Basically, other than stock National Insigia (and serials on the USAFWhite), all decals are new.
     
    The cockpit is based off Kesselbrut's Yak-3 pit, HEAVILY modified to fit the O-1, with gauges repainted and converted/recalibrated to US standard (knots & feet). Some gauges do not work properly, but this is the closest we have (or more truthfully, the best I could
    find). Lots of moves and other tweeks to both the data and cockpit ini make it fit like it kinda sorta shoulda.
     
    Decal randomization is set to TRUE, so be at least at whichever patch level gave that to us.
    The aircraft uses stock HVARs, but for fun I've included the M-60 underwing machine gun. So you can shoot stuff up. A revamped version of the 7.62mm M-60 gun is also included. A new Userlist.ini is supplied, with most of the Dog's users.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them -CAREFULLY-!! .... Also, see the "Notes" section for Vitally Important Information ™. Seriously ... you NEED to read it. In fact, after unzipping, you might want to read this document through before installing.
     
    Happy Landings!

    WAIVERS: This package is for freeware use only!
     
    The Tigercat in Korea - A brief History
     
    VMF-542 Squadron left San Diego for Japan in late August, 1950, the Tigercats being hoisted aboard the small aircraft carrier USS Cape Esperance. After arriving in Japan, the squadron was based at Itazuke AB for a short period but probably didn't operate over Korea at that time. More likely they were just placed on alert status to counter any potential inbound threats.
    After the invasion at Inchon on September 15, VMF-542 began deployment to the newly captured airfield at Kimpo [K-14]. They flew their first combat missions from Kimpo on September 20. Operations from Kimpo were in support of the 1st Marine Division as it attacked northward. VMF-542 likely operated from the frozen Chosin Resevoir during that campaign. During this phase most operations were day and night interdiction, combat air support and armed recon but there is an interesting account of a VMF-542 Tigercat escorting a PR Tigercat [VMJ-1?] all the way to Vladivostok and back.
    In January, 1951, VMF-542 moved back to Itazuke, Japan. From there the Tigercats conducted long range armed recon missions as well as doing some spotting for naval gunfire.
    During February, 1951, VMF-542 was back in Korea, operating from Pusan [K-1] airfield.
    In March, 1951, VMF-542 returned to El Toro, California, to begin training on the F3D Skynight. VMF-542's Tigercats and some pilots were transferred to VMF-513, making VMF-513 a composite squadron with both Tigercats and Corsairs. At some point after being transferred to VMF-513 the Tigercats recieved their rather famous flat black paint jobs. With VMF-513 the Tigercats were flown from Pusan mainly at night with the Corsairs operating in the day time. During the night missions the Tigercats would sometimes team up with flare dropping R4D's and PB4Y Privateers.
    In June, 1951, VMF-513 moved to Kangnung [K-18], on the east coast of Korea. It was at this point the Tigercats scored there only aerial victorys, shooting down one PO-2 Biplane in June and another PO-2 in July, both shot down during night operations. From Kangnung the Tigercats also flew long night time patrols protecting the valuable radar station at Cho-do. On the return leg the Tigercats would engage any targets of opportunity. Another task was night time ground controlled radar bombing. The Tigercats would be called in by forward air controllers but the bombing run was calculated and directed by ground controlled radar operators. Yet another task was escorting B-26 Invaders during night time interdiction missions.
    At the end of March, 1952, VMF-513 moved to Kunsan [K-8] airfield. The front line was quite static at this time allowing a very heavy concentration of anti-aircraft guns to be built up. For night time combat air support operations, a system was devised were two crossed searchlight beams would be used as a reference point while a FAC would give targeting directions to the Tigercat pilot, based on the position of the crossed seachlight beams. After the first Napalm bombs were dropped the FAC would give directions for further drops by referencing the position of the fire from the first drop.
    In late summer, 1952, VMF-513 received twelve F3D SkyKnight fighters and the last of the Tigercats were phased out shortly after.

  12. C-141B Starlifter Replacement/Tweeks Pak

    C-141B Starlifter Replacement/Tweeks Pak
     
    = For SF2, Any and All (Full 5 RECCOMENDED!!!) =
     
    Some remods/tweeks/partial reskinning and new decals for the recently (re)released C-141B
    Starlifter.
     
    It is designed to totally REPLACE the C-141B in the Cargo Planes Pak, so you'll be deleting the
    aircraft and decals folder OF the original (re)release, and replace them with these.
     
    All the painted on markings have been removed, and new decals are used in their places. The
    tail flash represents the 438th AW out of McGuire AFB. Many other small changes have been
    effected; new avionics ini, lights moved (or removed), etc and so forth. Not a full and total
    rebuild, just some tweeks for minor improvements. The partial templates I created/used for this
    are included. Maybe someone will step up and give us a Lizard Camo.
    The skins supplied herein are in jpg format.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read
    them!!! Also, give the "Notes" section a read, in particular on operational usage.
    The Legal Statement has been changed with regards to this aircraft.
     
    **These aircraft herein are released in "AS IS" Condition. Any and all issues/problems that
    cannot be solved via ini edits will exist forever, as new models are unlikely to be created**.
     
    Happy Landings!

    This is a Re-release of the Veltro2k's O-2A FAC aircraft.
     
    **Note: due to extensive modifications to the cockpit and other ini tweeks, it will =NOT=
    work in 1stGen SF/Wo* games at ANY patch level**
     
    As stated above, a reissue of the Skymaster FAC bird. Included in this pak are all the mods
    from the "O-2 Tweeks Pak' I issued in 2009 (and it's attendant readme). This is the complete
    aircraft.
     
    Skins remain in their bmp format; Decal radomization is set to TRUE. A user list is
    supplied. New damage textures are in DDS format. All weapons referenced are STOCK 3rd Wire
    items, available in full 4/5 merged installs.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read
    them!!! Included is my original readme for the "Tweeks Pak"; it's suggested you read this
    as well, as it contains a listing of all the changes, tweeks, mods and so forth.
    The Legal Statement has also been changed with regards to this aircraft.
    For those that still have the original releases, as there HAVE been changes and additions in
    several of the inis you may wish to examine, you may wish to replace the originals with
    these.
     
    **This aircraft herein is released in "AS IS" Condition. Any and all issues/problems that

    this bird is rather old, and has its limitations. it is not meant for flying on recon missions,
    but rather mainly for eye candy and somethin to possibly intercept or escort. while you CAN
    fly it, that does NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD. that said buyer beware all quirks of this bird like the pitch
    down on gear and flap retractions and the non moving control surfaces.
     
    ****************************USE OF THIS MOD*************************************************************************
    I will allow fairly free use of this mod in any other mod. What i (at this time) request is that you do not
    create a new skin based airline for it. the airlines are on as tga so that many airlines show up at one time.
    A seperate say "Pan Am" skin will ruin the effect and there will be 8-9 Pan Am birds on the tarmac. Any airline
    you would like to see, pm me and i will either tell you how to make it or time allowing make it and add in. Thank
    you.
     
    again, thank you for downloading this and i hope you enjoy it

  15. SF2 PB-1W AEW "Navy Fortress" Pak

    SF2 PB-1W AEW "Navy Fortress" Pak 9/29/2014
     
    -- Something for the Early Cold War players --
     
    = For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    **Note: Having any SF2 series game is HIGHLY reccomended, as this mod references the stock destroyed An-12. This mod will absolutely -NOT- work in any 1stGen Games at ANY patch level. This aircraft uses several SF2NA ONLY mission statments and avionics coding, and should only be used in a Full-5 or NA environment.**
     
    *Note x2: this aircraft mod is designed to replace any and all eariler variants. If you have the old 1stGen one, you are advised to completely delete that mod; aircraft, declas and all.*
     
    This is a release of Veltro2K's PB-1W Navy Flying Fortress Airborne Early Warning and Patrol aircraft. This package =ONLY= represents Forts used by the US Navy in the post-war timeframe (including the Korean War), until replaced by the WV-2 Constellation in 1955.
     
    There is 1 skins/decal set(s) in this pack:
     
    VW-1 circa 1947-1955, as based at NAS Barbers Point, Territory of Hawaii
     
    The Skin is in jpg format. The serials ARE historically accurate (100%) for the aircraft and unit, as all PB-1s served with VW-1 at one time or another.
    All markings are decals. All lighting is historically correct. Damage textures are in DDS format.
    Engine sounds, pilot figures, Hangar and Loading screens are included. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole years'.
    When in game you'll see:
     
    PB-1W Navy Fortress (v2k)
     
    on the aircraft selection drop down. This will differentiate this one from any others that you may (or may not) have
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! PLEASE read the "Notes" section for other important notations.
     
    Happy Landings!!
    Wrench
    Kevin Stein
     
    *Note: this has been placed in the "Cold War Aircraft" section, even though the original airframes were of WW2 vintage. The aircraft was only use DURING the start of the Cold War*

  17. C-141A Starlifter Redux 2

    This is primarily a skin pack although it fixes a few quirks in the data.ini that was pointed out in testing as well.
    Included are 3 historical skins: Natural Metal, White over Grey and European 1.
    A dozen serial numbers and represented units tied to those numbers
     
    Credits: BIG THANKS to Geary for the staring templates. He was much faster on panel lines than i could have been, and it does
    help a skin when it has proper panels and some weathering
    Veltro2k for the original model and some technical support
    Wrench for more tech support and updating the original some
    Muesli for testing the semi final product
    TK for the game itself
    me, well i just made the nat metal and lizard skins, decals and cleaned up a little round the inis and edges
     
    Install directions: drop the objects folder into your mod folder. Allow overwrites. No particular SF version needed and historically
    fits into all of them including Israel (resupply in '73).
     
    I hope you enjoy this mod

    *****************************
    UPDATE NOTES
    *****************************
     
    IMPORTANT.
     
    Update by 76.IAP-Blackbird. All credits to him. He did great job on this.
    He fixed airbrakes and put engine reverse thrust into specified models with TF33 / JT3D engines.
     
    If you already have this pack. You can download just update data.ini of each aircraft. file Updated_Aircraft_Data_only.rar
     
    Please copy data.ini file of aircraft model into specific folder in game mod folder.
    Do not use Data.ini of on emodel on other. Even if file name is same.
    Example.
     
    RC-135U_70 got different data.ini file than model _80 or _90.
    So you need to copy each aircraft data.ini file from each folder of this update into yours game folders.
    Just keep this in mind to avoid mess with fake pilot RC mods.
     
    Or you can download whole updated pack and overwrite yuor game files.
     
    If you are downloading it for the first time. No need to download update. It has already updated ini files.

     

    You need FakePilot mod to run this pack.
     
    This is Beta version which means:
     
    - I never finished avionics work. I was trying to do something but lack of time...and it will take me months. So ther is no specific avionics for every model. Just one generic. And it is not working. It really needs some avionics work.
     
    - Skins could be better. I just simple deleted some lines here and there but I've never put so much attention to weathering etc.
     
    - Cokpit is from B-52. Just for test flights. It is included. I don't remember who made this. All credit to him.
     
    - All birds are set as Bobmer so they can fly high.
     
    - For sure it needs some ini work.
     
    - It need still some work. But only if i will find time. Better to upload it now than never. So for now it is realased as in condition.
     
    Pack includes
     
    RC-135C Big Team.
    RC-135D Rivet Brass.
    RC-135E Lisa Ann / Rivet Amber.
    RC-135M Rivet Card.
    RC-135S Rivet Ball. first S version under name Wanda Belle and later Rivet Ball.
    RC-135S Cobra Ball early as in 1969
    RC-135S Cobra Ball as in early eighties.
    RC-135S Cobra Ball current version as rebuild in mid nineties.
    RC-135U Combat Sent early version with 'Towel Rails' and first paint scheme
    RC-135U Combat Sent still early version but with new paint scheme.
    RC-135U COmbat Sent late version as modified in late eighties.
    RC-135V Rivet Joint eary version of V model with LTV mission equipment
    RC-135V Rivet Joint late rebuild with E-Systems humps.
    RC-135W Rivet Joint
    RC-135W Rivet Joint as above but with new engines.
     
    All serial numbers are historicaly correct. Same as names.
    All aircraft were names as code + number "Combat Sent II or Cobra Ball I etc.) I have no information about everything. Info about any of it would be great. Especialy about Rivet Card.
     
    Since whole mod is made via fake pilot there are some limitations.
    Biggest "no" for me is first S- Cobra Ball where 663 and 664 carried little different set of sensors.
     
    Some aircrafts were upgraded later than other in same model group. So service date is generic as first aircraft of block build was issued.
    Example: first Cobra Ball was flying already 1969 (663 number) but second (664 number) was delivered in 73 if I remember correctly. Same with other aircrafts, they were never delivered same year.
     
    There were few fancy nosearts spotted on RCs but...not this time. Maybe later with some updates
     
    Instalation:
     
    Copy subfolders to specific folders in your mod directory.
    Aircraft,Pilots, Decals.
    Thats it.
     
    Enjoy.
    Report bugs.
    Keep an eye on enemy.

  19. SF2 IDF C-47 Skytrain Pak

    SF2 IDFAF C-47 Skytrain Pak 6/10/2016
     
    = For SF2:I (Full 5 Merged RECCOMENDED ) =
     
    **You =MUST= have SF2I Expansion Pack 1 to have access to the stock 3W C-47!!!.**

    Some small modifications, reskining/decaling of the stock 3rd Wire C-47 Skytrain/Dakota
    transport aircrft, as used by the Israeli Defense Force. Be advised, THIS mod is designed
    for use -ONLY- in your SF2:I mod's folder.
     
    The package contains 2 skins for No. 103 "Flying Elephants" squadron Skytrains:
     
    Brown/Blue camo (mid 1950s thru 1969)
    Late 3 Tone Camo (1969-2001)
     
    Skins are in original bmp format. The SF2 "date switch" is used, and the game will
    automatically switch over to the late 3-tone in 1969. The Brown/Blue will start in 1955,
    although research is not conslusive as to exactly when. For years predating that, they
    seem be in an OD/Grey type of paint job (not the NM finish the Game Engine ™ uses).
     
    All markings are decals, and decal randomization is TRUE. Serial & Modex numbers are 100%
    historically correct. Both skins use the same 'pool' of number decals. There are no Hangar
    or Loading screens, but all sounds and pilot figures are provided. Also included are the
    cockpit (for those that haven't made it flyable yet) updated/revamped data, avionics, and
    userlist inis. I've also given you my (patent-pending) "One Click Restore" main ini.
     
    As always, unzip this to a temp folder or your desktop, and you'll have access to the rest
    of the readme for the install instructions.
     
    Happy Landings!

  20. SF2 P-3C Orion by Florian

    SF2 P-3C Orion by Florian 8/29/2015
     
    = For SF2, (Full 5 Merged RECCOMENDED!) =
     
    A stand alone release (as requested) of Florian's Beta P-3C Orion naval search aircraft. It is taken 'as is' from eburger's RSR mod. The only thing I've done is activate the cockpit, and change a few sounds.
     
    Skins included are 2 US Navy and 1 Netherlands Navy, as is the cockpit and all required decals and sounds. A full userlist ini, is included for skinners
     
    **This aircraft is a "Beta Release". It is released in "AS IS" Condition. Any and all issues/problems that cannot be solved via ini edits will exist until as it's no longer a Beta.***
     
    Happy Landings & Good Hunting!

  21. CFM powered E-3 Sentry Pack

    CFM E-3 Sentrys
    by daddyairplanes
     
    This mod adjusts Veltro2k's E-3D release to add all 3 E-3 versions that used CFM-56 engines. Included are the RAF's D model, French AF's F model and Royal Saudi AF's A model.
     
    Installation
    Unzip. Install into desired mod molder. Allow merging and overwrites
     
    Known Issues
    No there is not an ESM kit for the E-3F at this time. If a 3d modeller is able to assist in the future one may be added via fakepilot. However the French birds are the only ones to use that bit of equipment, so it is somewhat low priority.
     
    Aircraft Included
    Sentry AEW.1 (E-3D), E-3F Sentry and E-3A Sentry RSAF
     
    Credits
    Veltro2k: original model and original hangar screen for the E-3D
    daddyairplanes: ini edit to create E-3A_RSAF and E-3F, new hangars for mentioned aircraft based on original in E-3D, tga and ini edit work. improved D model skin and tga
    TK: the original moddable game
    Dave, eburger68: technical consultations on in game behavior
     
    I hope you enjoy this humble little mod.

  22. Upgrade Kit for C-17 Globemaster III (V2K)

    C-17 Globemaster III Upgrade
    by daddyairplanes
     

    This mod upgrades Veltro2k's C-17 Globemaster III to incorporate all tactical USAF and all foreign users. It has skins for all 9 C-17 operators as well as time specific in the USAF and a couple of fictional skins (15 in all). The base skin has been updated by Flogger23 and myself, and ini updated by yours truly.
     
    ***************************** Installation: ********************************
    unzip, copy to mods folder, allow overwrite if needed.
     
    *****************************Known Issues********************************
    -The cockpit is nonexistant. These are mainly as AI and the mission set for transports is limited so this will probably not be fixed soon
    -while cargo statements are included in the data.ini, there is a wall at the back of the cargo bay that prevents the interior from being seen. If this is remodeled, i will include cargo "weapons" and tweek the positions.
    -the Qatar VIP skin does not have "Qatar" decal on the bottom. It left a mark on the right side as a tga and was too screwy looking being on the seam of the skin so i left it off.
     
    *********************Contibutors and Thanks to: ********************
    Veltro2K- created the original model
    Flogger23- reworked the skin for better looking panel lines and other features
    Lazarus1177- pointing out to use jpeg rather than bmp. Learn something new everyday
    daddyairplanes- tga work, ini editting, stubborn determination to see more than just one unit on a skin
    airliners.net- loading and hangar screens
    Dave, Muesli, Flogger23, Viggen, Lazarus1177, allenjb42- other sets of eyes to catch what i screwed up on
     
    I hope you enjoy this mod and airlift the troops right to the enemies doorstep.

  23. KC-97G Stratofreighter

    KC-97G Stratofreighter
     
    The KC-97 Stratofreighter was an aerial refueling tanker variant of the C-97 Stratofreighter (which was itself based on the Boeing B-29 Superfortress), greatly modified with all the necessary tanks, plumbing, and "flying boom." The cavernous upper deck was capable of accommodating oversize cargo accessed through a very large right-side door. In addition, transferrable jet fuel was contained in tanks on the lower deck (G-L models). Both decks were heated and pressurized for high altitude operations.
     
     
     

    Notes:
    serial numbers, while generic in nature, ARE for the model depicted (KC-97G). Decal randomization is true. All markings are decals.
    Damage texture is in DDS.
    End Service Year is 'best guess' (and longer than historical), but will cover until/if KC-97L is built and released.
    Crew entry door is operated by the Standard Animation Keystroke , Shift/0 (zero). The standard bomb bay keystorke, Cntl/0 (oh) operates the refueling boom.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    credits:
    Veltro2K for the aircraft
    TMF for alt flaps & alt geat sounds
    ??? for gear hydralics sound
    AvHistory (GregoryP) for engine sound
    Cockpit by Dels (from C-123; more "steam gauge" looking)
    Decals, ini work, screens by Wrench (hangar screen SF2 version of V2k original)

    Damage texture is in DDS.
    A new userlist is included for the 2 main users (USAF, and Spain -3 aircraft)
    Crew entry door is operated by the Standard Animation Keystroke , Shift/0 (zero). The standard bomb bay keystorke, Cntl/0 (oh) operates the refueling boom.
    For skinners, within the Decals folder is a PSD to assist in the creation of other USAF ANG tail badges, as well as some base bmps for other decals to be made from.
    A new combo "jet/recip" engine sound (borrowed from the P-2H Neptune) is included, as is the usual "4 engine piston" for those that find the other too loud.

  25. SF2 Boeing C-97 Cargo & HC-97 ARS Pak

    SF2 Boeing C-97 Cargo & HC-97 ARS Pak 10/16/2015
     
    = For SF2 (Full 4 Merged or Full 5 RECCOMENDED) =
     
    This package contains 2 complete aircraft and skin/decal sets for cargo-carrying C-97s (of all marks, as their differences are negligible), and a version used by Air Rescue Service (later ARRS)
    Included are:
     
    C-97G (can be used for any cargo variant -A,B,C,D,E,F,G)
     
    MATS (generic)
    MAC (115th ATS (H), 146th ATW, Caifornia ANG)
     
    HC-97G:
     
    303rd Aerospace Rescue & Recovery Squadron
     
    The SF2 date switch is used on the skins for the C-97, switching from MATS to MAC in 1961.
    Serial numbers, while generic in nature, ARE for the model depicted (KC-97G). 18 serial decals are included. Decal randomization is true. All markings are decals (excepting the HC-97's wing tips).
    Damage texture is in DDS. A template is included in a seperate folder, but was only partly redone for those areas I need to repaint. Skinners are encouraged to improve and expand on it. In the C-97's decals folder, you'll also find the psd to create the "nose lozenge" that carried the last 4 digits of the serial number. This style is/was used on a great number of other MATS/MAC aircraft.
    Crew entry door is operated by the Standard Animation Keystroke �, Shift/0 (zero). The rear cargo door & Loading ramps are operated by the standard bomb bay keystroke (Control/o (oh).
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them ....
     
    Happy Landings
