F4U Corsair WW2 Pak (Wolf257)
= For SF2, Any & All (Full 5 Merged Reccomended*) =
Designed for use =ONLY= in a stand-alone SF2-based WW2 PTO Mods Folder!!!
*Note: Full-5 Merged reccomended, due to the use of SF2NA style 'carrier based' statements in the
aircraft's data inis. Working WW2-era aircraft carriers (and escorts) are required as well as
Terrains with working SF2NA-style _water.bmps and NavalMap=TRUE). There is a 98.6% probability that
this mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs, due to the excessive modifications made to
fit them into the SF2 environment.
Please note, that in the case of NavalMap Terrains, USMC & RNZAF
aircraft =WILL= be flying off carriers, regardless that said aircraft versions/squadrons did or did
not in Real Life . It's a Game Engine "bug" that can only be fixed by have both a land-based and
carrier-based version of the aircraft (ie: "Nationalized")*
This is a compliation of all the work done to date on Wolf257's Corsairs, from 1stGen WW2 mods, converted, adjusted,tweeked, etc, for use in the SF2 environment. This package is designed (read: WILL) replace all other
previously released versions/variants/mods of these aircraft.
This package holds 6 complete aircraft, with all their skins and decals:
Corsair MK.IV (RNFAA- BPF)
F4U-1 (USMC Birdcage 'Stand In')
F4U-1A (USN, USMC, RNZAF)
F4U-1D (USN, USMC, RNZAF)
F4U-2 (Radar Equiped Nightfighter; USN, USMC)
F4U-4 (USN, USMC) *by TMF, specific for WW2*
For squadrons represented, just look in each aircraft's folder.
New cockpits, from the TMF -4/-7/AU-1 are being used on the Mk.IV, -1D. The -2 is using the radar-
equiped cockpit from the -5N. While not fully hisorically correct, they have the proper "look and
feel" for the era. The -1 & -1A still uses the original Wolf cockpit. With a small "enhancement"
Data inis (FM), loadouts, userlists, etc meet (almost, FM-wise) the latest standard. All skins are in
Jpg format, and decal randomization is TURE. See 'Notes' for more details.
All weapons are included, in SF2 formatting, as are sounds and a pilot figure.
Supplied, for Optional Use, is a slightly modified SquadronList.ini, with small name changes to some
USN & USMC squadrons, that may (or may not!) show the correct squadron name on the Loadout Screen.
Also supplied is a 'backdated' SCB-125_Data.ini for SF2NA users that will allow the anachronism of a
1950s-era angled-deck Essex class CV to work in WW2 (that also has =NO= working guns!!).
