SF2 WW2 ETO Republic P-47D "Bubbletop" Thunderbolt (0.5 Beta) 12/15/2014
= For SF2 (Full4/5 Merged RECCOMENDED!)
*This mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs. It was built for SF2 ONLY!!.*
This is a BRAND NEW aircraft, brought to you by Cocas Aircraft Factory & Co.
We are calling this "version 0.5 beta", as there are a few minor issues with the LOD, and
these will repaired as Real Life allows. But, we wanted to get them out into the
hands of our WW2 End Users for their examinations and so forth. See Notes below for a
more detailed explanation.
REMINDER: this pack contains ETO Bubbletop Jugs =ONLY=!!! Other theatres/users will follow
as time permits, and as they are completed.
This pak contains, as stated above, a NEW aircraft, representing the Bubbletop P-47D (-25
thru -30-ish) Thunderbolt as seen in late 1943 through war's end.
Skins included are:
56th Fighter Group :
61st FS (early 44, OD/G)
62nd FS (mid/late 44-45), camo)
63rd FS (sometime in 44, NM)
379th FS, 362nd FG (full D-Day markings, NM)
All markings are decals. Decal randomization is set to TRUE.
Please note, Squadron or Group specific markings -ARE- painted on, as are the Invasion
Stripes. There are some nose arts.
All the 1stGen Hangar and/or Loading screens were either rebuilt to SF2-spec, or created
new for this package. They are in jpg format, and fit SF2 formatting. Damage textures are
also new, in DDS format. There are 2 different Loading Screens, and you can swap them as
you see fit.
The canopy opens/closes with the Standard Animation Keystroke , Shift/0
Pilots, sounds, weapons are all included.
Templates for this aircraft ARE included, for those skinners that wish to do other units,
or other theatres, or Allied users (and see my appeal in the "Notes" section <grin>). The
template is in the main zip of the package, so don't forget to move it OUT of your mods
folder or things might get confusing!
As there are several P-74D Bubbletops available, when in game you'll see:
P-47D-20 Thunderbolt (CAF)
on the aircraft selection dropdown menu. This will diferentiate it from any others that
you may (or may not) have.
As some units are repeated, those with the mods I built for Wolf's Jugs, can choose to
keep those, or remove them to storage.
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. PLEASE
read them!!! Also, as usual, give the "Notes" section a read, too.
