Scooters! - Redux - a rework of all my Single-Skin-Releases for Thirdwire A-4 Skyhawks
*** SF2V required. Tested in full 5-merged installation ***
For this pack I redid all my previous single-skin releases, brought them on the same level with the Scooters Vol.1 pack and rearranged them. I also corrected several errors from the older versions.
Former VA-153-Skin with optional Coral Sea Marking is split into 2 separate skins for Coral Sea and Constellation now. Some skins are done for different plane-variants to reflect upgrades.
So this Pack includes:
- VA-93 Blue Blazers, USS Hancock, 1/1967 to 7/1967 for A-4E_65
- VA-153 Blue Tail Flies, USS Constellation, 5/1966 to 12/1966 for A-4C_65
- VA-153 Blue Tail Flies, USS Coral Sea, 12/1964 to 11/1965 for A-4C and A-4C_65
- VA-163 Saints, USS Oriskany, 6/1967 to 1/1968 for A-4E_65
- VA-164 Ghost Riders, USS Oriskany, 6/1967 to 1/1968 for A-4E-65
- VA-164 Ghost Riders, USS Hancock, 1/1972 to 10/1972 for A-4F and A-4F_LST
- VA-172 Blue Bolts, USS F.D. Roosevelt, 6/1966 to 2/1967 for A-4C-65
- VA-192 Golden Dragons, USS Ticonderoga, 10/1966 to 5/1967 for A-4E_65 and A-4E_67
- Added Weathering, that most early skins missed.
- Insignia and several squadronspecific markings are painted on.
- Many decals are redone and optimised (more blur for less flickering)
- Corrected several errors in the baseskin, aswell as for the markings.
- Added modexnumbers to the flap insides (possible with mue's great LOD-Viewer - Thanks mate!)
- Updated cockpit with working Landing Gear- and Arresting Hook Lever
- Included Hangarscreens for each skin in 1920x1080 as default and 1024x768 optional.
Notes and Issues:
As there's no possibility of squadrons with mixed plane-variants, some skins are available for 2 plane-variants. At some point A-4C and A-4E got ECM-equipment and I'm pretty sure, those were used besides planes without ECM in squadrons. The other case are A-4E, that got the avionics hump at some point and were used besides ones without hump.
I hope you have fun with it!
