SF2 WW2 Spitfire Mk.V Trop (RAAF, SoWesPac) Pak by Cocas Aircraft Factory & Co (ver 0.9) 1/09/2014
-- Something for the PTO 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
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 PTO (in particular, the Darwin and New Guinea regions of the South West Pacfic) 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 Australia.
= REMINDER: this is a Nationalized, Theatre-specific aircraft mod!!! =
The Skin(s) included with the package are:
No. 54 Squadron (RAF -tagged as RAAF for gaming purposes) (DL)
No. 79 Squadron, RAAF (UP)
No. 452 Squadron, RAAF (QY)
as based in and round Darwin, NT, Australia, and that general region. For all intents an purposes, this constitutes No. 1 Fighter Wing.
On the Loadout Screen, the plane-in-group letters that have a star (*) next to them have been 100% positively matched to their historically correct serial numbers. Those without a star, while having served within the Squadrons represented, could NOT be matched to any specific aircraft. This is true for all 3 Squadrons represented in this package.
The Squadron Crests 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 SWP (Oz, PNG) 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 RAAF (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.
