SF2 WW2 PTO Pv-1 Ventura (Mid) by Veltro2K 9/2/2014
-- Something for the WW2 PTO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
**Note: This mod will -NOT- work in 1stGen game installs at any patch level. A Full-5 merged is reccomended.**
This is a the release of Veltro2K's =NEW= Lockheed/Vega PV-1 Ventura USN Patrol Bomber. This represents the mid-production solid nosed, with 2-guns as used in the PTO.
There are 4 skin/decals set(s) in the package:
USN (42-43, NS Blue over NS Grey, star-and-ball)
USN43 (star-&-bar, 3 tone)
RNZAF (dark blue over grey mid-war light blue roundels)
RNZAF43 (dark blue overgrey, roundel-and-bar, various Pacfic Places (tm) )
The skins use the SF2 "date switch", and will change in approx September, 1943
Although the US Navy skins are tagged for various VB/VPB squadrons, they are representative of pretty much ALL USN PTO Ventura units from Australia to the Aleutians.
The RNZAF skins, while tagged for No.3 Squadron, are also fairly representative of NZ units in the SoWesPac regions of the PTO.
All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. Serial number/BuNums are accurate for the model depicted, but should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they reprsent no specific unit. Lighting is as accurate as possible, given the lack of pictures of the bottom.
Engine sounds, pilot figures, Hangar & Loading Screens are included. Weapons, guns, bombs, etc, are NOT; you should have them already. Operational service dates are rounded to 'whole months', and ARE relatively correct for ALL in-theatre usages.
When in game, you'll see
PV-1 Ventura (Mid) (v2k)
on the Aircraft Selection Drop down menu. As several versions are planned, this will help keep them diferentiated, so to speak.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!!!
All hit boxes reset or newly created for those components without
Small adjustment to some FM parameters.
Destroyed model referenced to a stock 3W aircraft, available in all versions
