SF2 WW2 ETO B-17E Flying Fortress Pak 5/10/2014
-- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
**Note: Having any SF2 series game is HIGHLY reccomended, as this mod references the stock destroyed An-12. Also, due to modifications to various inis, this mod will probably -NOT- work in 06/08 level 1stGen game installs. This has not/cannot be tested by me.**
*This is a "Theatre Specific" release of Veltro2K's NEW!!! B-17E Flying Fortress Heavy Bomber. This package =ONLY= represents E-model Forts used in the ETO.*
There is 1 skins/decal set in this pak:
AAF42/43 - OD/NG representing aircraft as they first arrived in Theatre in June 42 (star/ball insignia, yellow outline). It is "representative" of the 97th BG (no particular squadron) before it was transfered to the Med. As such, it's an accurate depiction of early 8th AF heavy bomber squadrons, before squadron markings and color IDs were adopted (and the immenent arrival of the F model).
The Skin is in jpg format. All new (theatre specific) serial number decals were created. The serials ARE historically accurate (100%), and matched to the appropriate nose arts.
All markings are decals. All lighting is historically correct. Damage textures are in DDS format.
It should be noted, do =NOT= use this mod in an PTO-centric mods folder; European Forts have different operational dates than those in the Pacific.
When in-game, you'll see:
B-17E Flying Fortress (V2K)
on the aircraft selection dropdown. While no other E models exist, this is simply done as a convenience.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!! PLEASE read the "Notes" section for other important notations.
with thanks to Veltro !!!
