SF2 WW2 F4U-2 Corsair Nightfighter (Birdcage) by Mod Mafia/TMF (Ver 2.0)
*Version 2.0, for post 7/13 patch. This Version Replaces the earlier one in its Entirety. Although, for the most part, the changes only relate to the wing mounted radar pod. (data and loadout ini edits*
= For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*Note: There is a distinct possibility that this mod may 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 very minimum, SF2:V is required, as this aricraft references the A-1H's destroyed model*
*Note #2: this mod will REPLACE, in it's entirety, the F4U-2 I built using Wolf's as a base. You may (well, should!) delete that mod completly*
This represents the F4U-2 Corsair Nightfighter, as used by the USMC and USN. This is a mod of the TMF Birdcage Corsair, and uses the -5N cockpit (which I know ain't correct), which has the radar scope.
New for Ver 2.0: The AN/APS-4 wing-mounted radar pod has been added as a "fake pilot seat", and will NOT move when the wings are folded. It was done like this, simply because in the post 5/13 and 7/13 patch world, the right wing would disappear. Completely.
Units depicted are:
VF(N)-101 US Navy
All skins are in jpg format, Decal Randomization is TRUE (these decals are reused from the Wolf Corsair mod). Damage textures are the old tga versions. The Hangar screen is the same one resued, and is SF2 compliant.
When 'in game', you'll see
"F4U-2 Corsair (TMF)"
on the aircraft drop-down selection window.
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. However, commented out ARE the sections that do allow for Standard Keystroke animation wingfold. It is suggested you do NOT change it from how it's done now. Doing so creates "visual oddities" on carrier parked aircraft (the right wing is missing!)
All lighting is historically accurate. WW2 weapons (ie: bombs), pilot figres, etc, are NOT included. You should have them already from the other Corsairs.
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.
For Oli; you are sorely missed!
