Gloster Javelin FAW.9 for SF2 by Veltro2K
= For SF2, Full-4 Merged, and/or SF2E, both with Expansion Pak 2 (Reccomended!) =
(A Re-Upload, as the original seems to have vanished)
The main reasoning for the need for Expansion Pak 2, is the aircraft's inis are pointing to the stock 3W EE Lighting's cockpit and avionics. This is required for proper use of the rebuilt Firestreak missiles (included).
However, if you do not have the required game installs/ExpPak, a simple edit of the main ini will return it to use the cockpit supplied, from the original 1stGen release. BE ADVISED -- You will NOT have the proper "shoot-cue" in the gunsight for missile launch, and will be using some 'Kentucky Windage' and range guess-timations. A more detailed explaination is to be found in the "Notes" section.
This is an upgrade/mod of Veltro2K's Gloster Javelin. Several of the inis have been tweeked, peaked and fiddled with. Although primarly tasked with CAP and INTERCEPT mission profiles in Real Life , the ESCORT and RECON profiles have been added for player enjoyment. There is NO ground attack capability. Several weapons are included; a updated FirestreakIR (from the old BunyPak, with all new data*), a 230 gallon wing drop tank, and the centerline tank from Veltro has been repainted. Skins/decal sets included are:
41 Squadron by LloydNB
85 Squadron by Syrinx (iirc!)
All skins now have the proper RAF Squadron Badge for their 'paint chip' on the Loadout Screen.
Data and loadout changes duplicate the hardpoints; one set is ONLY for missiles, the other is ONLY for use the new wing drop tanks. All lighting has been updated and repositioned, with the addition of landing lights. Gun aim angles have been adjusted to "center on the pipper" A new 'damage' dds file is included, as are new Hangar and Loading Screens for your viewing pleasure. A Userlist has been generated, even though these aircraft were never exported. It should be noted, that the destroyed model pointed to is the MirageIII, so having SF2E or SF2I is a MUST!!
As always, READ the enclosed readme for full, highly detailed, step-by-step install instructions. This package is set up for a 'drag and drop' style of installation -- everything has been divided into the proper folder format that SF2 needs/wants/requires. Of course, the usual "Notes" section for other important stuff; might want to read it, huh? VERY Important info in there... So, PLEASE read it through after unzipping, but before installing.
**The aircraft herein is released in "AS IS" Condition. Any and all issues/problems that cannot be solved via ini edits will exist forever, as new models are unlikely to be created**.
*=this is a seperate missile from the 3W Firestreak; for use only on the Javelin and Sea Vixen FAW1 & FAW2. This was done on purpose -don't mess with this!!! Seriously .. don't. All things are done for a reason.*
