SF2 WW2 F4U-1C Corsair by Mod Mafia/TMF
= For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*Note: There is a distinct probability that this mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo*
1stGen game installs at any patch level. 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 the LATEST patch level;
at very minimum, SF2:V is required, as this aricraft references the A-1H's
destroyed model. Also, due to some bmp mapping in dds format, there are some things
that just make it impossilbe for 1stGen to generate. At all.*
*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, based on Bpao's F4U-1D, converted to the F4U-1C by RussoUK2004.
With Extra Expecial Thanks to Russ for MAX work on the model; he truely made this
variant possible! He went 'above and beyond' to fix some issues I was having.
This is the F4U-1C Corsair, as seen from early 1945 unitl the end of the War.
Skin/Decals set included are for:
VBF-85, aboard USS SHANGRI LA
VMF-311, aboard USS BRETON (CVE-23)
VMF-331, land based on Okinawa
All skins are in jpg format, Decal Randomization is TRUE. New SF2-style hangar
screens are included (watch the switch when flying Marine squadrons). Damage
textures are the old tga versions.
The "prop fix" from the Birdcage and -1A/-1D variants has already been applied to
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 research has shown that many squadron still were
using G-symbols on VJ-Day (although, in truth, Shangri La DID start using it's "Z"
code in July. Photos prove this!!). 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!).
A new 20mm gun, created by Russo, is included as well. (thanks again!)
Also, I've preformed a slight "Cheat" on the VMF-311 skin; it's Nation tagged as
"USN", because for some reason, nowadays, USMC Air Units are relegated to Land-
based Ops only. By doing so, I've allowed the Game Engine to generate them
when 'in game', you'll see "F4U-1C Corsair (TMF)" in the aircraft selection drop-
down window. This will diferentiate it from any other -1Cs you may (or may not)
As always, fairly easy to follow, 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.
