SF2 WW2 RAF Boston III Pak (DAT)
= For SF2 (Full4/5 Merged RECCOMENDED!)
**This mod -MAY- work in 1stGen game installs. But this has not/cannot be tested by me. **
This pak contains mods for the Dev A-Teams Boston III light attack bomber, as seen in
Western Europe (ETO) from 1941 through War's End. This is a semi-complete aircraft mod, as
per DAT directives, the aircraft lod is =NOT= included. So, those users that cannot access
the DAT downloads, you're advised to skip this, as it's of no use to you.
Those users with access, will be transfering the lod from the Wings Over Africa, or from a
seperate DAT download of the A-20C/Boston III. This mod has been built and tested with the
A-20_Boston-R3a24.lod from WoA. You =WILL= need this, to copy/paste into this aircraft's
The skins from my Home Grown Template ™, and remain in their bmp format. New decals
were created as needed for serials, plane-in-group letters and others. The serials are
'generic' in nature, as they represent no particular unit, but ARE for the model variant
depicted. Decal randomization is set to TRUE
Weapons (bombs) and guns are NOT included; you should have them already.
The skins included herein are, basically, the ones I'd had posted on my (now closed) site.
There is one new-build. You have:
Standard 1941(ish) Day Scheme (dark earth/dark green/sky)
No. 88 "Hong Kong" Squadron (code RH)
No. 107 Squadron (Code OM)
Standard Day Scheme (CC?), 1942/3-ish (dark green/ocean grey/medium sea grey)
RAF2 (that's the folder's name...)
for a fictional squadron; that according to the books, started in Havocs before transfering
to Mossquitos. This is easily rebranded, via squadon letter code decal, to a Real Life
(Note: there is, in my mind, some lack of historicality on this skin on Boston IIIs. Most
of the profiles and pictures seem to show they carried the darkearth/darkgreen until
retirement late in the war. Boston IVs more than likely carried this late scheme)
All the 1stGen Hangar and Loading screens were either rebuilt to SF2-spec, or created new
for this package. They are in jpg format. Damage textures are new, in DDS format.
The inis make use of the 'hide component' or the 'open cockpit' statements to make sure
the cockpits are where they're supposed to be. This may prevent them for working in 1stGens
at any patch level.
The Canopy (ok, cockpit hatch) has been switched to the Standard Animation Keystroke ™,
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE
For those that may still have my 1stGen releases, it's advised you delete, or move to a
storage disk or elsewhere, the aircraft and decals folders for them; this pak is desinged
to replace them in total.
The readmes for the original skins from 2005 are residing in the 107 and RAF2 skin
folders. They may make for entertaining reading.
