F-104G, Air Pirate
-- For FULL-4 Merged SF2 (Prefered) and/or SF2:E =ONLY!!!=
(it can acutally be used in any SF2 install that has the access to the F-104G)
A "just for fun" mod . . .
This package represents aircraft from the fictional Post-WWIII world of the novel series "The Wingman", by Mack Maloney.
These are F-104G Starfighters as flown by either Air Pirate, or a Freelancer ('guns for hire').
This package comes with a single skin set; A Garish Red/Yellow, as described in the first book. Those wishing other skins are advised to extract the USAFSilver1 and drop it into the main skin folder. Other, more "unusual" skins may be forthcoming. Depends on End User demand, and my free time. Other than the 'pirate' badges, there are no other markings.
This mod creates a new, stand-alone aircraft (not exported, with no other user). It is best used in a stand-alone mods folder that is based on the post-WW3 world of "The Wingman". Although, it may fit into the 'alternate' world of the Global Sedition vs the North American Alliance. (as do many of my terrain mods)
This is a COMPLETE aircraft package, including the Zipper's cockpit and the hi-rez repaint by Batman1978; all is ready to just unzip, install and fly. The avionics ini has been modified to give you an 'audio-only' RWR.
Loadouts have been adjusted to reflect the 'lack' of sophisticated weapons in the Post-WW3 world (especially for the 'Bad Guys'), and include a 'nation-specific' AirPirate AIM-9B. The canopy has been set to use a manual animation key. Use Shift/0 to open and close it.
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 (read: drag and drop).
Again, as usual, the expected "Notes & Ramblings of a Madman" section for fun.
(this'll give the ADF somebody to contend with!)
Aferthought: this might also make a good skin for use in a Mercenary Campaign! For either side!
