SF2 WW2 ETO Westland Whirlwind Mk.1 Pak
-- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
This pak contains a reissue of Veltro2K's WW2 Royal Air Force fighter/bomber aircraft. These are the complete aircraft, with various/sundry changes. Remember, this is the WW2 fighter, NOT the helicopter!!!
This pak contains the original 3 skins representing...
263 Squadron, in early 1940 camo (dark earth/green)
263 Squadron, in 1941-ish camo (medium sea grey/green)
137 Squadron, (also in the MSG/Gr)
The skins remain in their original bmp format. All new decals have been created for Squadron Codes, plane-in-group letters, and serial numbers. Serial numbers should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they represent no particular squadron affiliation, but ARE correct for the Whirly. Decal randomization is set to TRUE.
The late RAF MSG/Gr camo skins use the "DefaultStartDate" switch to activiate in Nov, 1941. Operational Service Dates are rounded to the closest whole month.
All new Hangar and Loading screens, in jpg format, are included, as are new damage textures in DDS format.
New engine sound, pilot figure and the drop tanks are also included. Guns and Bombs are not; they're the standard "RAF" bombs, that you should already have. The canopy operates via the Standard Animation Keystroke , Shift/0.
The flight model is (slightly) more SF2-compliant than the original, but as always NEEDS further work by 'those with the know-how'.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! PLEASE read the "Notes" section for the change list, and other important notations. Also, the Legal Statement has been changed with regards to this aircraft.
For those that still have the original releases, it's advised you delete the aircraft and decals folders for them; this pak is desinged to replace them in total..
**The aircraft herein are released in "AS IS" Condition. There are some issues with the LOD that cannot be resolved. Period. Any and all issues/problems that cannot be solved via ini edits will exist forever, as new models are unlikely to be created**.
