SF2 WW2 F4F-3/4 Wildcat, SBD-3/5 Dauntless
-- Something for the PTO players --
= For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*There is a possibility 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.*
This is a compilation of all my work for Wolf's SBD Dauntless and Pasko's F4F Wildcat. It is
designed to replace ALL the previously released versions. So, be advised.
There are 5 aircraft in this pak:
F4F-3 (pre- and early war)
F4F-4 (early war to mid-43
FM-2 (mid to late war -this is a stand in aircraft, based on the -4)
SBD-3 (pre and early war, to mid-43 -includes RNZAF skin)
SBD-5 (mid war, tri-color)
and ???? a surprise!
All have semi-compliant SF2 Flight Models, but they REALLLLLLY do need further fine tuning by
experts. All lighting on all aircraft is 100% historically correct. All are carrier capable, with
the SF2NA statments for those (ok, 2) aircraft with folding wings
Use Shift/0 to open the window, and Shift/9 to fold the wings -Wilcat ONLY!
All skins are in jpg format, and decal randomization is set to TRUE. I've tried, as best as
possible, to use the 'StartDefaultDate' on all skins to limit the availability for pre-War markings
from those that came into being post-January, 1942. The -4 'cats have skins that start 1/42, and
the Dauntless has the same pre and post 1/42 starts. Hopefully, they will work as they should.
Userlists are included for all aircraft, as being 'exported' means USN, USMC, and in the SBD-3's
case, RNZAF.SF2 versions of the old 'box art' Hangars are included for those that had them.
Sounds, weapons are included. Also, for you enjoyment, a never-before-released-to-the-public
"Surprise" aircraft. Yes, its a total stand-in, and dosen't really even look like what it
represents, but ... you can have to fun with it (flying for the Red Side, that is, attacking it.)
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please
read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too.
All readmes from the original releases, and re-releases, are included where discoverable from the
