SF2 WW2 F4U-1D Corsair by Mod Mafia/TMF
= For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*Note: There is a distinct possibility that this mod =MAY= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs. However, due to the excessive modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment. End Users that attempt to do so, do so at their own risk. A Full 4/5 Merged install is reccomened; at very minimum, SF2:V is required, as this aricraft references the A-1H's destroyed model. Also, some of the SF2 only "switches" will NOT work in 1stGens.*
*Note #2: this model will REPLACE, in it's entirety, those using Wolf's as a base. You may (well, should!) delete that mod completly; both the aircraft and decals folders. These, again, will replace them.*
A brand "new" model that was never completed when Bpao passed away a few year back. I've been fortunate enough to be allowed to complete his work, as a member of the Mod Mafia.
This is the F4U-1D Corsair, as seen from 1944 unitl the end of the War.
Skin/Decals set included are for:
VF-84, aboard USS BUNKER HILL
VBF-10, aboard USS INTREPID
VBF-83, aboard USS ESSEX
VMF-112, aboard USS BENNINGTON
VMF-323, land based on Okinawa
20 Squadron (?), land based SoWesPac. (note: markings may be for No.1 or No.2 Service Unit, the "parent unit" of the squadrons.)
All skins are in jpg format, Decal Randomization is TRUE. A "new" SF2 version of the original 'box art' hangar screen and loading screens are included. Damage textures are the old tga versions. AND...when selecting the RNZAF Corsair, expect a surprise!!!
The "prop fix" from the Birdcage and -1A variants has already been applied to the mod.
USN Air Group markings are the "G" system, and are painted on the skins. This system was used from Jan 1945 to July 1945, when Air Group marking began changing the now in-use "Letter" style. My resarech has shown that many squadron still were using G-symbols on VJ-Day. Decals are used for most other markings, and Randomization is set to TRUE.
A user list is included; operational service dates have been rounded to the closest whole Year (ie: 1944).
The aircraft is fully carrier capable. The canopy operates via the Standard Animation Keystorke of Shift/0. Breaking with Modder Tradition, the wingfold operates via the "airbrakes" key. I didn't change to the standard Shift/9, as the last time I did it, I broke it!. So, it is as it was originally set by Bpao.
All lighting is historically accurate. WW2 weapons (ie: bombs, rockets) are NOT included. You should have them already. The drop tank is, as is the pilot figure and engine sounds (which you may also have already!).
when 'in game', you'll see "F4U-1D Corsair (TMF)" in the aircraft selection drop-down window. This will diferentiate it from any other -1Ds you may (or may not) have.
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please READ them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too for futher explinations, clarifactions, illuminations and so forth.
