  1. F-22A Raptor Add-on

    F-22A Raptor Add-on
    October 13th, 2021 (1st Release)
    by yakarov79, baffmeister, Crusader, guuruu and Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2 games
    This is a high quality add-on of the F-22A Raptor aircraft. The original model had been made by Heberth, and it was released in alpha stage.
    Upon noticing room for improvement, yakarov79 helped finalize the 3d model with numerous, additional details; accurate pylons and rail launchers, new external fuel tanks, highly detailed rack and small diameter bomb 3d models, canopy and thrust-vectoring animations, high-res skin with specular and bump maps, updated cockpit model, and so on.
    A realistic, well-thought flight model has been produced by our expert, baffmeister. Moreover, Crusader offered his great expertise to improve upon his previous modification for the Raptor's avionics. All their efforts have raised the quality bar of the project I had started; much credits to them all.
    I further polished the package by adding historically accurate weapon loadouts, my selection of sounds (including authentic engine samples by guuruu), realistic camouflage shapes and colours, reworked decals for the actual USAF's F-22A squadrons, new cockpit textures and other tweaks here and there. Each squadron has got historically correct serial numbers, and they appear in chronological order in the loadout screen; the serial numbers at the bottom of the list are those of aircraft that joined that squadron for last, while the serials at the beginning of the list indicate those aircraft that were available to that squadron for first.
    Like you would expect in an opera omnia, I even reproduced three unique paint schemes of real Raptors; the air superiority camouflage of the EMD 91-4001 Prototype of September 1997, the temporary "Blue Nose" decoration of the "Cripes A'Mighty" Raptor assigned to the 149th Fighter Squadron in April 2010, and a generic Mid-Production livery sporting the markings of the last Raptor ever produced that flew for the first time in March 2012.
    Templates by yakarov79, tweaked by yours truly, are included for your skinning fantasies.
    Notes:
    -The cockpit is not yet accurate, as various details couldn't be reworked due to RL and time constraints. We were working on a brand new cockpit with accurate HUD and displays. Slimers with correct illumination were also planned. Hopefully they will be a thing in a future re-release.
    -The aircraft folder is named "F-22A", just like the one included in a number of mod packages which use an old 3d model by Dels. In order to avoid mismatches and bugs of any sort, it's highly suggested to either remove or rename the aircraft folder using Dels' Raptor 3d model.
    -GPS guidance does not work as intended in SF2, as it brings a lot of issues about the avionics, the use of racks and the AI behaviour. This is why the JDAMs have been set as laser guided bombs. Despite this, they seem to work much like GPS guided bombs; without a targeting pod (which the Raptor does lack), you are still able to lock on the primary target of the strike mission, and the bombs can be used only on that target, as it should be.
    -The AI aircraft usually have issues with guided bombs in SF2, they may not drop them. Strike missions should be accomplished by the players themselves.
    -You need to tweak the SoundList.ini file in order to fully experience any new sounds. Read "(Add to SoundList)" for further details, and remember to extract the SoundList.ini file from the FlightData.cat archive, if you do not have a custom one in your mod folder already.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -Heberth, for making this (once forgotten) fantastic 3d model.
    -Julhelm, for sharing the files of his superb F-22A cockpit 3d model, allowing yakarov79 to improve upon it.
    -yakarov79, for his invaluable help in finalizing the 3d model and remaking the base textures; you have my gratitude.
    -baffmeister, for his excellent flight model; it's thanks to him if this beauty flies as good as it looks.
    -Crusader, for reworking the avionics enhancement made for Julhelm's F-22A cockpit, and for improving the AIM missiles.
    -guuruu, for sharing his RWR symbols improvement mod and for making better engine sounds.
    -ravenclaw_007, for the AIM missiles from his top notch Weapons Pack 2, the GBU-32 JDAM bomb and the ACES II seat 3d models.
    -viper63a, for his old F-22A USAF Raptors Redux package, from which I borrowed decals.
    -mue, for his LOD Viewer which helped immensely in the making of the skins.
    -Cocas, for further help given to Heberth for the aircraft's 3d model.
    -My girlfriend, for supporting me in all of my life's endeavours.
    Additional ReadMe files by yakarov79 and baffmeister have been included among few others; be sure to read those to know about their work in better detail.

  2. SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016

    SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016
    by Viper63a
     
    -------------------------------------------------------------
     
    The default install of this mod pack requires SF2NA merged in your install. If you don't have SF2NA in your install base, you have to install the files in the "Non_SF2NA_Patch" folder for the avionics to function properly. See installation section for more details.
     
    -------------------------------------------------------------
     
    This is my iteration/update of the F-22A Raptors originally released by the "Raptor Team". The lion's share of the work was done by the "Raptor Team" - so I DO NOT take credit for ANY of their wonderful work. What I did was upgrade the original package with various other packages released over the years (All noted in the credits). Other than that, I've recreated and tweaked the skins to my liking, added some new squadrons, and created all new decals for the planes. Comes complete with new Hangar, Loading and Loadout files as well. The original package can be downloaded with the following and/or the links in the Credits sections...
     
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    What's included in this mod pack?
    -------------------------------------------------------------
     
    Included in this package are the 7th, 14th, 22nd, 27th, 36th, 43rd, 80th, 90th, 94th, 95th, 199th, 411th, 422nd, 433rd, 493rd, and 525th USAF F-22 Squadrons. All squadrons have the complete compliment of tail numbers. Some F-22s were re-deployed from Virginia and Hawaii to Europe (Germany/England) and Asia (Korea) as a deterrence (preparation) force for the current tension in the regions.
     
    Additional Skins for this pack is available here...

  3. SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016 - More Skins and Squadrons

    SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016 - More Skins and Squadrons
    by Viper63a
     
    More F-22 skins and squadrons for the "SF2 F-22A USAF Raptors Redux 2016 Version 2.5" package. Blaze got me thinking about some of the old Raptors from the golden days of flight sim, so I brought some of those "What if" Raptors to SF2 levels!
     
    You will need the original main pack for these skins to work. You can get that with the following link...
     
    http://combatace.com/files/file/15909-sf2-f-22a-usaf-raptors-redux-v3/
     
    Included in this package are the 14th SEA, 22nd Desert, 80th SEA, 433rd Various/Black, 493rd Desert and etc... All squadrons have their complete compliment of decals for their "What If" scenarios. These are considered to be "Show Birds" or Mercenary jets deployed into the USAF mix of some future conflict. There are some other Raptors from Nellis and one special Raptor for Paris.
     
    As always, I recommend that you back up your mod folder before you install any new mod...just in case.
     
    * To install, simply unzip and copy the contents of the "To_Mod_Folder" folder to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder and Overwrite (if needed).
     
    My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...

    That's it, Enjoy!
