SF2 WW2 MTO Bristol Beaufighter Mk.VIF (NF) USAAF (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 Bristol Beaufighter, that recreate the Mk.VIF Night Fighter/Intruder as used by the US Army Air Force in the MTO.
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 Beaufighter Mk.10.
This mod has been built and tested with the
BeaufighterMk10_R8.LOD (dated 7/19/2005)
from their WW2 Aircraft Downloads section. You WILL need THAT lod to copy/paste into THIS aircraft's folder.
This pacakge contains 1 (almost) complete aircraft. This is the late mark VIF, with the 'thimble nose' for the AI MK.VIII radar
The skin depicts aircraft from the 414th NFS, as seen in the Western Med (Tunisia) and Italy from 1943 onwards. This is a 'nationalized' aircraft, for American use only. Therefor, exportation is FALSE, and no userlist is supplied.
The skins are completly new, from my Home Grown Template , and remains in bmp format. New decals were created for serials, plane-in-group numbers.
The serials are 'generic' in nature, as they represent no particular aircraft within the unit(s) depicted, but ARE for the model variant represented. The Squadron Crest/Patch is used for the 'paint chip' on the loadout screen.
All national markings are painted on. Decal randomization is set to TRUE.
Hangar and/or Loading screens were either rebuilt to SF2-spec, or created new for this package. They are in jpg format, and fit SF2 styling. Damage textures are new, in DDS format.
The FM, based off the Beaufighter in the Wings Over Africa , may need further small adjustments.
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, and READ the install instructions BEFORE installing this mod. So you know EXACTLY what to do..
