SF2 WW2 SEAC Spitfire Mk.V Trop Pak by Cocas Aircraft Factory & Co (ver 0.9) 1/09/2014
-- Something for the CBI players --
= For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*Note: having whichever expansion pak gave us the Spit Mk. IX is required, as this mod references the stock 3W destroyed Spitfire*
This is tagged as Ver 0.9, as we're sure some minor fixes may be required. We wanted to get it out into the hands of End Users , both for your flying pleasure, and further examinations.
This package is for CBI (in particular, Burma and India aka "SEAC") Spitfire V Trops -ONLY!!!-. NOT to be used elsewhere! This is a Theatre Specific aircraft package! The data ini uses the correct dates for Mk V arrivals in India.
REMINDER: this is for use =ONLY= in a WW2 CBI-centric mods folder.
The Skin(s) included with the package are:
No. 615 Squadron "County of Surrey" RAuxAF
as based in the Chittigong region of India (present day Bangledesh) upon arrival in-theatre.
The Squadron Crest are used as the paint chip, as seen on the Loadout screen.
This pack makes use of the Brain32 trick of having the skin maps in the MAIN aircraft folder, NOT in the individual squadron folders. As almost all SEAC (Burma/India) based Spitfires were painted the same camo, this reduces the size of the package. Only the squadron codes would need changing.
Like the other CAF Spitfires, the skin is in jpg format. All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE.
The canopy operates via the Standard Animation Keystroke , Shift/0. Guns are also grouped, MGs in Group 1, the cannon in Group 2. Guns, weapons, etc are NOT included, but the AvHistory Merlin engine sound is. You
should have all the rest.
When in game, you'll see:
Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop (CAF)
on the aircraft selection dropdown menu. This will diferentiate THIS Spitfire from any other MK Vs you may (or may not) have.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them.
