SF2 WW2 ETO Short Stirling Tweeks Pak 3/26/2014
-- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
Some tweeks for Veltro2K's recently released Stirling Mk.I. What this pack does, is activate ALL the included Squadron Code decals by creating skin folders for those squadrons.
If you don't have it already, you can get the aircraft at the following link:
(in other words, install the aircraft 1st, THEN this Tweeks Pack)
As the decals and the ini in the above release are set up for the as-yet-to-be-released ETO All Inclusive mod by the DAT, we are missing the necessary files to create the selection drop down to choose which squadron gets what.
This mod creates new skin folders, albeit with the original skin maps (more on that later), and activates the squadron code decals for the following RAF Bomber Command units:
No. 7 Squadron
No. 15 Squadron
No. 75 "New Zealand" Squadron (original NCamo skin)
No. 90 Squadron
No. 149 "East India" Squadron
No. 214 "Federated Malay States" Squadron
No. 218 "Gold Coast" Squadron
The Squadron crest for each is used for the 'color patch' as seen on the Loadout Screen.
My (patent pending) "Box Art" Hangar and Loading screens are included, as are new DDS damage textures.
You will be moving (read: copy/paste) the original skin maps to the MAIN aircraft folder (ala Brain 32's trick). As all BC aircraft of the time were painted the same, this creates no issues.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them after unzipping, but BEFORE installing, and FOLLOW them exactly as I've written them!!!
BE ADVISED, THIS MOD IS =NOT= TO BE USED WHEN THE DAT RELEASES THEIR ETO PAK. IT IS DESIGNED FOR USE ONLY BY THOSE END USERS THAT CANNOT ACCESS THEIR DOWNLOADS. IT IS DESIGNED FOR USE IN A STANDARD OR "GARDEN VARIETY" WW2 ETO MODS FOLDER, =NOT= FOR THEIR ALL-INCLUSIVE MOD.
