The Mirage Factory F-14 Tomcat Super Pack V1.21 AUG. 25, 2013

 

What it is:

This is the F-14 Tomcat Super Pack v1.21 Full. It includes tweaks to the engines, avionics, weight, effects and the Phoenix missile.

 

=================

 

Installation:

 

=====CAUTION=====

1. This was tested at July 2013 patch level, on an "All 5 Merged" install, and because it uses AvionicsF14A.dll, will require SF2NA (or a TW F-14) to work! It will not work on Gen 1 sims, nor will it work correctly on pre-April 2012 installs! (Caveat: Avionics70.dll F-14D should work on pre-April patch levels).

 

2. It is HIGHLY recommended you back up your current F-14's .ini files and cockpit folders. If you have custom skins installed, be sure to back up your F-14(A/A+/B/D).ini to preserve the texture set data.

=================

 

 

1. Unzip the contents of the F-14SP_V121.7z file into a folder.

 

1a. If you have installed the Avionics70 F-14D, ensure you back up the .ini files if you haven't renamed the bird, since this install will overwrite F-14D_92, 96 and 06!

 

2. Open your Strike Fighters 2 mod folder (e.g. C:\User\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 Europe\...)

 

3. Copy the contents of the unzipped Objects folder into your SF2 mod Objects folder, allowing all files to overwrite (Objects\Aircraft and Objects\Weapons).

 

3a. (RECOMMENDED) Review the Cockpit and Avionics, and F-14 SP Update word documents for information on updates.

 

4. Go fly!

 

=================

 

 

1. Unzip the contents of the F-14SP_V121.7z file into a folder.

1a. You may choose to use the Avionics70.dll F-14D for SAR mode on strike missions. If you wish to do so, see Section 6 of the F-14 SP Update V120 word document (Para 6.1-6.3) for install procedures and recommendations.

2. Open your Strike Fighters 2 mod folder (e.g. C:\User\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 Europe\...)

3. Copy the contents of the unzipped Objects folder into your SF2 mod Objects folder, allowing all files to overwrite (Objects\Aircraft, Objects\Weapons, and Objects\Decals will be affected).

3a. (RECOMMENDED) Review the Cockpit and Avionics, and Update word documents for information on updates.

4. Go fly!

What's New in Version v1.21 Full

Released

  • List of effective changes:
  • V1.21 AUG. 25, 2013
  • 1. Changed Throttle Response Times for F-110 and TF-30 engines to better reflect RL engine response times (listed and observed).
  • 2. Changed TCS overlay to better match real TCS feedback, adjusted TCS camera position (SupGen)
  • 3. Changed vapors to appear wings -> intakes -> turtlebacks, from wings -> turtlebacks -> intakes
  • 4. Seeker symbol scaled back to match gun pipper (both are the same in the F-14A/B)
  • 5. New Phoenix Missile by Ravenclaw_007
  • 6. A/C Gross Weights changed to match manual numbers
  • 7. HUD Steering Tee is now only available for radar guided missiles in the F-14A and B; Sidewinder modes and Gun modes did not show the HUD Steering Tee; however, the Sparrow and Phoenix PDSTT/TWS-A/M modes did. (Caught by Crusader and implemented)
  • 8. Removed TCS cycle function from F-14A_IR (I don't believe it was functional, but one of the screens was the TCS filter.)
  • 9. Added Flat Spin entering arguments and recovery procedures to manual
  • =================
  • v1.20 Update 09/19/2012
  • 1. New F-14D HUD by CrazyhorseB34
  • 2. Added optional Avionics70-based F-14D, which is most useful in the air to ground role. It looses functional TWS-M and VDI, but has the Synthetic Aperture Radar mode for the APG-71
  • 3. Adjusted the F-14 AWG-9 and APG-71 scan ranges (after discovering the game supports at least 7 scan ranges). The radars now scans 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 (230), 400NM. This reflects real-world AWG-9's/APG-71's standard scan breakdowns, plus Data Link 400 mile picture. VSL-Hi now scans only at 5NM as in the real world (Note, F-14A_IR does not use Data Link)
  • 4. Changed CM suite to make AI more survivable - AI will not use loadout-equipped countermeasures, so basic CM suite was added back into the data.ini. For all aircraft prior to BOL implementation, breakdown is 30 chaff/30 flare, with the exception of TARPS loadouts, which still provide ECA/EFA (pre-loaded) for player aircraft. BOL loadouts (96 and on) are 320 chaff/60 flare (160 per BOL dispenser, all 60 ALE-29/39 with flares).
  • 5. Fixed ILS HUD on F-14A/B/D - ILS no longer indicates waypoints, but follows ILS lineup
  • 6. Adjusted the AIM-7 rotation to prevent inboard fins on stations 5 and 6 from slipping into the F-14 3D model
  • 7. Added Iranian F-14's MIM-23/AIM-23C Hawk-IR missile and modern IRIAF skins by Spectre8750.
  • 8. Changed AIM-54A Export End Year to match F-14A_IR Service End Year (2018)
  • =================
  • v1.19c Update 08/09/2012
  • 1. Changed the AIM-7 and AIM-54 EjectVelocity for all F-14's. This makes it closer to the actual missile drop velocities (based on extant footage), and also prevents the missiles (esp. AIM-54) from pitching up and through the launching aircraft.
  • 2. AIM-54 Phoenix missile textures have been updated.
  • 3. F-14A_74 and F-14A_IR have lost the AIM-9 seeker head symbology. This symbology wasn't added to the F-14 until 1985. The F-14A_82 has retained the symbology because that aircraft covers the years 1982 to 1995 (gaining the symbology 3 years early vs. 10 years late).
  • 4. F-14A_74 jammer changed to ALQ-100. The F-14A received the ALR-45/50 by 1973, but did not receive a new jammer until 1981 (the ALQ-126).
  • 5. Removed ALR-67 bands from F-14A_82 and 96, and adjusted ALR-67 bands in F-14A+/B/D - the RHAW gear in the F-14A had included the -67's bands, which it did not have.
  • 6. This Pack has the new VF-41 skins intigrated, so need to add them.
  • =================
  • v1.19b Update 07/30/2012 Repacked Aug 1, 2012
  • See Description Section.
  • =================
  • v1.18 Update 05/13/2012:Well i thought it was. Fixed Heat Missile Sight on A and B's. Fixed Roll Rate. Still stable and fun to Dogfight in. Set BOL LAU-138's to 1996 and after.

  • Added A-G specific Gunsite for AWG-9 F-14's.
  • Changed Target Symbol to Diamond according to NATOPS to all AWG-9 Birds.
  • Set all ALQ-123B systems according to supplied information to all F-14A's and B's. Iran's is ALQ-100.
  • ALQ-126B's are NOISE and DECEPTION Jammers and are so set.
  • Added AN/ALQ-165 ASPJ to all F-14D's as it was designed and fitted with as always according to the Navy.
  • Adjusted Scan Bar settings to within AWG-9 Specs. Limits are 2-bar, 40-deg or 4-bar, 20-deg pattern,
  • which yields a 2-sec scan rate. Also set Search, TWS, STT, ACM, RadarAzimuthLimit and Scanbeamangles to specs.
  • I set the Missile Guidance Freq 6.2Ghz within C Band and seams to work better than 6.0 with my testing.
  • Set Gun Sights and Rocket Bore Sites, tested with LAU-32A on Sparrow Stations, all work perfect.
  • Added missing Squadrons and adjusted some years that coincide with actual Tour Dates.
  • Added VF-213 NH '96 and VF-213 AJ '05 Final Tour color skin.
