For the Dev A-Team's A3D-1
*PLEASE NOTE: this is =NOT= a complete aircraft mod! A major component, the aircraft's LOD is NOT included!! This file is propritary of the Dev A-Team, and cannot be shared. You =MUST= be a Registed User at their site, with access to their downloads, to make use of the Pak. If you do not have, or cannot get access, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS MOD, AS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE IT!!!*
It should be noted at this time, that while the folder & main ini are called "A3D-1", the aircraft in actuality is an A3D-2 (late)/A3B, as evidenced by the 'shovel nose' radome.
Lots of changes have been effected, to try and bring it close to SF2 standards; much more work is STILL needed by those that know how (FM rebuild). A new cockpit, adjusted loads (included a Nuke specific STRIKE loadout, and a Strike_Heavy -with MK.84s, for use with the 3W Mission Editor), a 61kt USN-spec Mk.7 atomic bomb is included (nuke effects are NOT included). All other loadouts use stock in-game items. See "Notes" for partial change list.
Wingfold operates by the standard manual animation keystroke, Shift/9.
3 skins and decal sets are included:
VAH-1, by ChampionVA56
VAH-3, also by Champ
VAH-13, based on Champ's, by me, with all new decals and markings (all markings are decals)
Decal Randomization for all skins is set to TRUE. New hangar and loading screens are included (yes, I know the artwork loading screen is the early -1 version, but it's an R.G Smith, Offical Douglas Aircraft litho ... so there ya go!)
The base skin for VAH-13, being "clean" can be used for many other units by simply creating new squadon codes and tail markings. 23 600 series modex decals are included (601-624). Serial/Bu numbers should be considered 'generic' in nature, but are 100% accurate for the model depicted.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included.
Please read them! Also, the "Notes" section is requied reading, as well. Seriously; READ the Notes ... it contains vital comments and requests. I've done everything I can ... now it's up to someone else.
Following DAT policy, all their documentation is included. But NOT the aircraft LOD. Just so's you know for sure.
