SF2 WW2 MTO USAAF P-40L Pak by Raven 12/18/2014
-- Something for the WW2 MTO players --
= For SF2 ONLY, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*Note: this pak MAY be usable in 1stGen SF/Wo* game installs. However, some features (decal randomization and FM adjustments and several other things) will =NOT= be functional. Use in 1stGens has not, and cannot be, tested by me.*
**Note x2: this mod is designed for use =ONLY= in a MTO-Centric mods folder**
At first, (as usual!!) I was just going to do a simple skin/decals pack. But with all the "modifications" made to fit into SF2 chose to take the "lazy man's way out" and am just uploading the entire aircraft. So, if you already have Raven's P-40L in your MTO-centric mods folder, best to back it up someplace.
This is the full aircraft, with my 'tweeked' sf2-ish data ini. The skin included is for...
317th FS, 325th FG (the Checkertails)
as seen from late 1943 in North Africa and points North. This is the timeframe BEFORE the 325th converted to P-47s.
The original "OD_Green" skin is included, as the #2 texture, and has it's decals randomized. It carries the "star-and-ball" of 1942 thru Sept 43 insignia.
As a second option, I've included a "generic" MTO light earth/dark earth/grey unders camo skin. If one wants to use that type in place of the OD, I'd advise moving or renaming the OD skin maps !!BEFORE!! doing anything else.
All Skins remain in their bmp format.
New DDS damage textures (usable on all Raven's Warhawk/Kittyhawk in SF2 only) are included.
All markings are decals, and Decal Randomization is TRUE. There are no nose arts.
No weapons are included, excepting SF2 Version of the 2 drop tanks required (for those that haven't converted yet). New theatre-specific Hangar and Loading screens are included, too.
When in-game, on the aircraft selection drop-down, you'll see
P-40L-10 CU (Raven)
This will diferentiate this for any other Warhawks you may (or may not) have.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE read them!! Also, please give the "Notes" section a read as well
