SF2 MiG-23 & MiG-27 Floggers - Part 1

 

This mod supplies a collection of MiG-23 & MiG-27 Floggers, created by ArmourDave and The Mirage Factory, and heavily modded by Lindr2 for SFP1. (These are not mods of the 3rdWire Floggers supplied in the SF2 titles.) All have been converted and updated to SF2 standards. Also included with this mod are all the weapons, sounds, pilots, and seats that you will need to install and use any of the aircraft supplied with this mod.

 

This mod consists of three parts:

 

Part 1: 1st Generation MiG-23s (MiG-23S, Mig-23M, MiG-23ME, MiG-23MF,

MiG-23MF, MiG-23UB)

 

Part 2: 2nd Generation MiG-23s (MiG-23ML, MiG-23MLA, MiG-23MLAE, MiG-23P,

MiG-23PD, MiG-23-98, MiG-23UM)

 

Part 3: Ground Attack MiG-23s (MiG-23B, MiG-23BN) & MiG-27s (MiG-27,

MiG-27D, MiG-27K, MiG-27M, MiG-27ML)

 

Each of the three parts includes all the decals, pilots, sounds, effects that you will need for the aircraft in that part. The WEAPONS are contained ONLY IN THE 2ND PART, which means that you MUST DOWNLOAD THE 2ND PART TO GET THE WEAPONS.

 

These aircraft can be used in SF2, SF2E, SF2V, or SF2I. To install and use them, you should ensure that your SF2 installation is patched to at least the Dec2009 patch level. See below for installation instructions.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Installation

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Please note that installation of these aircraft will overwrite & replace the default 3rdWire versions included in the various SF2 titles. I recommend that you first REMOVE the 3rdWire MiG-23 and MiG-27 versions - even if you haven't modded them -- before installing these alternate versions.

 

To install, simply drag the following folders to your SF2 Mods Folder (NOT the folder that the game installs to):

 

\Effects

\Flight

\Objects

\Sounds

 

By default your Mod Folder should be located here:

 

Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\[username]\My Documents\ThirdWire\[Game]\

Windows Vista: \Users\[username]\Saved Games\ThirdWire\[Game]\

Windows 7: \Users\[username]\Saved Games\ThirdWire\[Game]\

 

...where [username] is the account you log into within Windows and [Game] is the name of the particular game mod folder that you're moving the files to.

 

If the aircraft are not showing up in your Single Mission Aircraft menu, then you didn't install all the bits correctly. And remember, the WEAPONS are contained ONLY IN THE 2ND PART, which means that you MUST DOWNLOAD THE 2ND PART TO GET THE WEAPONS.

A Few Notes About This Mod

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Those familiar with Lindr2's Flogger packages for SFP1 will rightly recognize that this updated mod builds on his earlier efforts. Although I have largely followed Lindr2's lead in assembling this package, there are some noteworthy differences between his SFP1 collections and this one:

 

1) Different Engine Sounds & Afterburner TGAs

 

I have used different engine sounds and afterburner TGAs to give the various engines used by different models distinct sounds and appearances.

 

2) NATO Code Names

 

The aircraft names do include the NATO code names, whereas Lindr2's SFP1 versions did not use them at all. Also, the Air-to-Air weapons use both NATO and Soviet names/designations (e.g., "R-73 AA-11 Archer").

 

3) Wider range of Skins/Nations

 

You will find a wider range of skins used to represent more nations, drawing on the various one-off skins that have been released by other modders.
