SF2 WW2 ETO Hawker Typhoon Mk.1B (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 Hawker Typhoon IB as seen in the ETO
This is a semi-complete aircraft mod, and 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. Everything else is included (pretty much!).
Those users with access, =WILL= be transfering the lod from a seperate DAT download of the Hawker Typhoon IB.
This mod has been built and tested with the...
Typhoon-R11.lod (dated 8/3/2005
from their WW2 Aircraft Downloads section.
This pacakge contains the (almost) complete aircraft, and two skins.
No. 175 Squadron (code HH)
No. 609 Squadron "West Riding" (code PR)
The skins are completly new, from my Home Grown Template , and remains in bmp format. New decals were created for Squadron Code letters, serials, plane-in-group letters and others.
The serials are pooled, and are 'generic' in nature, as they represent no particular aircraft within the unit(s) depicted, but ARE for the model variant represented. Colors are FS matched as close as possible. When possible, the Squadron Crest is used for the 'paint chip' on the loadout screen.
All fuselage markings are decals (wing roundels remain painted on); this will allow super easy creation of other squadrons by simply creating a new SCode or **(2letter) decal, and decal randomization is set to TRUE.
My 1stGen original "Box Art" style Hangar and/or Loading screens have been rebuilt to SF2-spec for this package. They are in jpg format. Damage textures are new, in DDS format.
Also included, is a new drop tank, by Raven, with a built in pylon (as it's missing from the aircraft model itself). See Notes for more on loadouts.
The rockets and guns you should already have, so they are NOT included.
The canopy has been switched to the Standare Manual Animation Keystroke , Shift/0.
The FM may need further small adjustments (ok, maybe more than a little...).
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!
All the original DAT readmes are included, for historical and ownership/copyright purposes.
It is HIGHLY suggested you unzip this archive FIRST, and READ the install instructions BEFORE installing this mod. So you know EXACTLY what to do..
