  1. SF2 WW2 Curtiss SB2C-3 Helldiver Pak

    SF2 WW2 Curtiss SB2C-3 Helldiver Pak 9/10/2013
     
    -- Something for the PTO players --
     
    = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    A new variant of Veltro2K's SB2C Helldiver.
     
    This package represents SB2C-3 Helldiver US Navy Dive Bombers in the mid/late 1944 configuration. There is actually not much external difference between the 3, 4 and 5 models, but I thought it would be nice to have the mid-mark variant. This mod was started in sping 2103 and got lost in some file shuffeling. So, here it is completed.
     
    This is a complete aircraft/skin/decal set, minus the weapons and pilot figures. These are all reused from the various other Helldiver packs I've released. The aircraft are finished in the standard Mid-1944 3-tone scheme.
     
    Skin/Decal sets included in this pack are for...
     
    VB-7, USS Hancock
     
    VB-14, USS Wasp
     
    As seen during the time frame of the Battle of the Phillipine Sea, and operations over the Phillipines. The historical WW2 squadron patchs, for each squadron, are used for the paint chip on their respective skins seen on the Loadout Screen.
     
    Skins are in jpg format, and decal randomization is set to TRUE. Other than the painted on national markings, all others are decals. This included the Modex and CVW "G" System symbols.
     
    New to this mod are DDS format damage textures, replacing the tga type. These can easily be used on any other of the SB2C variants now available, with minimal editing of their main inis.
    The Standard Animations Keystroke ™ are used for the wingfold, Shift/9. The pilot and gunner's canopies remains linked to gear retraction/extension.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them.
     
    Good Hunting!

  2. SF2 WW2 Curtiss A-25A Shrike Pak

    SF2 WW2 Curtiss A-25A Shrike Pak
     
    -- Something for the WW2 players (and What Ifers, too, maybe?...) --
     
    = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    US Army Air Force version of the USN's SB2C-1C Helldiver dive bomber.
    The aircraft has been 'de-navalized', with the removal of the hook, and has non-folding wings.
    Skins are in jpg format, and decal randomization is set to TRUE. Serial numbers are historically accurate for this aircraft.
    All markings on this aircraft are decals. This'll give the "What Ifers" a fairly blank canvas to create other fictional land-based users.
     
    It should be noted, this aircraft NEVER served in a combat capacity, and never left the Continental US. They were regulated to training and target-tow duties. Don't know what you're going to do with it, but here it is.
     
    This package is complete, with the aircraft, engine sound (AvHistory). Pilot figure and weapons (including guns) are NOT included. These are reused from the various USN SB2C paks.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too.
     
    Happy Landings!

  3. SF2 WW2 PTO A-24 Banshee

    SF2 WW2 A-24 Banshee (USAAF Dauntless)
     
    -- Something for the PTO players --
    = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    *There is a possibility that this mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs, due to the excessive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment.*
     
    This is a SF2 version of my eariler 1stGen A-24 Dauntless; like the recently rereleased SBDs, it has a (semi)complitant SF2 FM, and may need further adjusting by experts.
     
    It represents aircraft as used by the 8th Bombardment Squadron (Dive) in New Guinea in mid 1942. These aircraft had a very short operational career in combat (read: disastrous). Most later variants were regulated to Stateside training squadrons.
     
    The skin is in jpg format; decal randomization is set to TRUE. Serial numbers are correct for this model Banshee, as I was not able to run down exact usage for this squadron. It also uses the original Wolf cockpit, as these are the equlivant of SBD-3, with the telescopic sight (ring-and-bead used here). The 'fakepilot method' (patentpending) is used to add the 2 wing station pylons. This tweek can also be used on the recently released SBD Dauntless pak, if one has the ini editing skills
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them.
    All readmes from the original releases, are included where discoverable from the archives. Remember, also, this is a very old model, and like all the others, "it is as it is".
     
    Happy Hunting!

  4. SF2 WW2 SB2C Helldiver Tweeks Pak

    SF2 WW2 SB2C Helldiver Tweeks Pak
     
    -- Something for the PTO players --
    = For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
     
    Some tweeks, and a new skin for Veltro2K's recently released Curtiss SB2C "Helldiver" WW2 USN dive bomber.
    This skin is a simple re-decaling of the original release Dark Gloss Navy Blue, represent VB-7 from USS Hancock, post June/July 1945 (when BuAer mandated the changover from 3-tone). The skin is in jpg format, and decal randomization is set to TRUE.
     
    Tweeked Data, loadout, and main inis as well as Sounds, weapons are included. BRAND NEW SF2 "box art" hangar and loading screens, too.
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. It contains the Change List.
     
    Happy Hunting!

  5. SF2 WW2 Douglas TBD-1 Devastator Tweeks Pak (DAT)

    SF2 WW2 Douglas TBD-1 Devastator Tweeks Pak (DAT)
     
    For SF2, Full-5 Merged (RECCOMENDED!!!)
     
    *Designed for use in a PTO-centric mods folder built =FROM= the SF2:NA exe. NA coding is required for some statements I've changed/added.*
    **This mod will NOT work in 1stGen SF/Wo* game installs. Those that attempt to do so, do so at their own risk. No support is/will be available. The skins will most likely work in SF/Wo*, if they are converted BACK to bmp from DDS. This has not, and cannot be tested by me. You have been warned/advised**
    Those users that cannot access the DAT downloads, you're advised to skip this, as it's of no use to you.
     
    This is a semi-complete aircraft mod, consisting of mostly skins, decals, inis and various and sundry other needed bits and parts.
    This package contains a rebuild of my skins for the Dev A-Team's Douglas TBD Devestator naval attack/torpedo bomber.
    It is desinged to be used with their latest lod,
     
    TBD1A-R1.lod (dated 9/21/2011, make sure you get the Gen2 version!!)
     
    The skins have been partly redone to match the new mapping, and are in DDS format.
    Included are several modified inis, that correct/add/change some things. You are advised to BACKUP any/all originals. The Install instructions list which and what to delete or backup.
     
    This package contains nearly 100% historical skins and decal markings for US Navy TBDs as seen at both the Battle of the Coral Sea, and The Battle of Midway; their hour of greatest Triumph and Tragedy. I say 'nearly' 100%, as I couldn't quite get some of the wear-and-tear and fabric effects on the skin exactly as they should be, or as I wanted. Also, the BuNums for the VT-2 skin are not 100% match to Modex. Colors have been FS matched, as best as possible, to BuAer spec.
     
    The units depicted are...
     
    Battle of the Coral Sea:
     
    VT-2 USS LEXINGTON
     
    Battle of Midway:
     
    VT-3, USS YORKTOWN
    VT-6, USS ENTERPRISE
    VT-8, USS HORNET
     
    Unfortnately, I was unable to accurately 'pin down' the modex-to-BuNms-to-crew for VT-2 at Coral Sea. (I HAVE the crew listings, but not the BuNums)
    For the Midway Devestator squadrons, Modex and BuNums have been matched =EXACTLY= to their partiuclar aircraft, exactly as placed within each division of each squadron on each ship represented here. A number list for each squadron is included, with the crew names for each aircraft. Their names will show on the Loadout screen.
    Decal randomization is TRUE for all skins (which it actually shouldn't be -- the Midway Devestator's numbers.lst has them in their historicaly correct order). New damage textures, in DDS format, are supplied, as is an 'new' engine sound from the AvHistory set.
    NOTE: for VT-3, #s 13 & 14 were spare aircraft, that went down with YORKTOWN when she was sunk; research seems to indicate they did not participate in the Battle.
    Each skin's paint chip is the historically correct Squadron Patch.
    New 'box art' style Hangar Screens are included; The Loading screen artwork depicts Ens. George Gay's attack on AKAGI (the sole survivor of VT-8 whom I had to honor of meeting some years ago)
    Included is the new Mk.13 torpedo by Veltro2K
     
    As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! In fact, it would be better if one unzipped this archive FIRST, and read all the instructions BEFORE installing this mod. It will make things go easier.
    All original DAT readmes are included, for historical and ownership/copyright purposes.
     
    Good Luck, and Good Hunting!

    ps: I wanted to get this out by June 4, the anniversery of the Battle of Midway. I had NO idea the DAT would be releasing their All-Inclusive PTO until last night. This in no way changed my plans; but may make it easier for you all to use this.
