SF2 WW2 Hawker Hurricane IIB (ETO), by Raven
-- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
= For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*There is a distinct possibility that this mod will work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs. However, due to some of the modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment (read: data ini/cockpit tweeks, destroyed model, decal randomization, etc), all the features will =NOT= be working as designed.*
Some modificationa, tweeks, reskins and so forth for Raven's excellent Hurricane Mk.IIB (12 gun variant), create an SF2-ish version. (although it needed very little work!!). This mod represents ETO based Mk.IIBs. I'm treating this mark as the "Hurri-bomber" (sorta!).
Note: this is a COMPLETE aircraft mod, with all the bits and bobs included. Originially, I'd planned ONLY for a smaller package with just the inis, skins and such, but chose to do a full release (because I'm lazy). If you already have the IIB in your ETO mods folder, it's suggested that you either delete it or rename the folder so the Game Engine don't see it. Overall, the changes are fairly small.
1 new skin, and a slight revamp of the originial, from Raven's template, and bunches of new decals. Included are skins for:
No. 175 Squadron (original skin)
No. 174 Squadron "Mauritius" (new skin)
As seen post-1941ish.
Each skin has the squadron crest as the paint chip, as seen on the Loadout Screen. All new Squadron Codes, Plane-in-Group Letters and serial numbers were created. Decal randomization is TRUE.
Both use a "pool" of serial number and plane-in-group letter decals. Serials, while correct for this mark, represent no particular squadron usage, and should be considered 'generic' in nature.
Cockpit mods replace the gunsight, and the loadout has been slightly adjusted.
Weapons included are just the drop tank, converted to SF2 weapons format. Guns and bombs are NOT included; these you should have already.
The engine now uses the AvHistory Merlin sound (included). Canopy opens with the Standard Animation Keystroke , Shift/0.
The skins remain in their bmp format.
A new SF2 "photograph" style hangar screen is included.
When 'in game', you'll see "Hurricane Mk.IIB (Raven)" on the drop down menu. This will differentiate it from any other Hurri IIBs you may (or may not) have.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please =READ= them =BEFORE= installing this mod!!!. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. It contains the Change List.
With MANY Thanks To Raven for this bird!!!
