SF2 WW2 Curtiss SB2C-3 Helldiver Pak 9/10/2013
-- Something for the PTO players --
= For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
A new variant of Veltro2K's SB2C Helldiver.
This package represents SB2C-3 Helldiver US Navy Dive Bombers in the mid/late 1944 configuration. There is actually not much external difference between the 3, 4 and 5 models, but I thought it would be nice to have the mid-mark variant. This mod was started in sping 2103 and got lost in some file shuffeling. So, here it is completed.
This is a complete aircraft/skin/decal set, minus the weapons and pilot figures. These are all reused from the various other Helldiver packs I've released. The aircraft are finished in the standard Mid-1944 3-tone scheme.
Skin/Decal sets included in this pack are for...
VB-7, USS Hancock
VB-14, USS Wasp
As seen during the time frame of the Battle of the Phillipine Sea, and operations over the Phillipines. The historical WW2 squadron patchs, for each squadron, are used for the paint chip on their respective skins seen on the Loadout Screen.
Skins are in jpg format, and decal randomization is set to TRUE. Other than the painted on national markings, all others are decals. This included the Modex and CVW "G" System symbols.
New to this mod are DDS format damage textures, replacing the tga type. These can easily be used on any other of the SB2C variants now available, with minimal editing of their main inis.
The Standard Animations Keystroke are used for the wingfold, Shift/9. The pilot and gunner's canopies remains linked to gear retraction/extension.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them.
