NATO Fighters Update #5 by eburger

 

This version is for the latest patch versions and lots of "goodies".

 

You will need NF4+ Parts 1-4 of course to have a complete mod.

 


-----------------------------------------------
NATO Fighters IV+: Post-Dec2009 Update Pack # 5
-----------------------------------------------

 

This package contains a fifth update pack for the NATO Fighters IV+ (NF4+) add-on designed for "Strike Fighters 2: Europe" (SF2E) from ThirdWire. It does several things:

 

1) Adds new aircraft and ground objects

 

2) Adds new textures to existing aircraft

 

3) Adds large number of new ground objects

 

4) Updates or adds over 200 weapons and guns

 

5) Fixes or updates numerous other files in the
original NF4+ mod

 

6) Updates items for May2011 & Exp. Pack 2 compatibility

 

This update pack should be applied to SF2E/NF4+ installations that are patched to the Dec2009 or later patch level and that already have the first four NF4+ update packs applied.

 

IMPORTANT: If your NF4 installation includes Exp. Pack 2, you must be running at the May2011 patch level or later.

 

Please note the those running at the May2011 patch level or later will have an additional installation step to add update files for that patch level to their installations. Those running SF2E Expansion Pack 2 will have still another installation step (after installing the May2011 updates).

INSTALLING THE UPDATE

 

Installation of this update is simple.

 

1. Copy the contents of the \1_All_Patch_Levels directory to your SF2E Mod Folder,
overwriting as prompted.

 

If you are NOT running at the May2011 patch level or later (incl. exp. Pack 2),
then you're finished. If you are running at the May2011 patch level or later,
then proceed to the next step.

 

2. May2011 Patch Level: if you are running at the May2011 patch level or later, then
copy the contents of the \2_May2011 directory to your SF2E Mod Folder, overwriting
as prompted.

 

If your NF4+ install does NOT include Exp. Pack 2, then you're finished. If your
NF4+ includes Exp. Pack 2, then you have one more step.

 

3. Exp. Pack 2 Only: copy the contents of the \3_ExpPack2 directory to your SF2E Mod
Folder, overwriting as prompted.

 

That's it. You're finished.
