SF2 USAF Red Flag Nellis AFB Proving Grounds


This is my mod install for testing new aircrafts, objects and weapons. Once installed, I backup/zip the whole mod folder so I can reset it after testing whatever mod I am testing. It's also a Red Flag simulator. So if you want to take your favorite plane to Red Flag, here you go!


Red Flag Nellis AFB is a stripped down Strikefighter2 installation based in Nellis AFB with only a handful of flyable planes against the pre-loaded USAF F-15s/16s and Navy A-4s/F-5s/F-14s Aggressors (All AIs). There are no Campaigns, only Instant Action and Single Missions. I recommend setting the Enemy AI to "Hard" to get the most out of this install.


I added, tweaked, adjusted and created new items for this mod, but the lions share of this mod was created by other faithful modders on CombatAce - ALL CREDITS TO THEM! Thank you!


This mod is an expansion for "Hurc's Nellis Range Mod 2.0" mod, so you will need that mod as well...





Installation for fully merge installs only...Using SF2 Europe as an example.


* Creating a new "StrikeFighters2 Nellis" Mod Folder:
In the "C:\...\Thirdwire\" folder..
1) Copy "StrikeFighters2 Europe.exe" to "StrikeFighters2 Nellis.exe"
2) Copy "StrikeFighters2 Europe.ini" to "StrikeFighters2 Nellis.ini"
3) Create a short cut of "StrikeFighters2 Nellis.exe" on your desktop.
4) Run the "StrikeFighters2 Nellis.exe" short cut. Once the game starts, Exit.
5) You have now created a new "StrikeFighters2 Nellis" mod folder in \user\...\Saved Games\...


Mine looks like this...Yours may/will look different.
C:\Users\<Your_Name>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 Nellis\


* Download and install "Hurc's Nellis Range Mod 2.0":
1) If you haven't already - download, uncompress and install "Nellis Range 2.0" into your new SF2 Nellis Mod Folder.




2) Run the "StrikeFighters2 Nellis" short cut to start the game.
3) In the Single Missision Menu, Ensure\Select the F-15A and the Nellis Terrain. Exit Menu to Main.
4) Optional, set up the Pilot and Options menus to your liking or do this later. Exit Menu to Main.
5) Exit from Main.


* Configure and install the "Red Flag Nellis" Mod:
In the "C:\Users\<Your_Name>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 Nellis\" folder...
1) Under the "Objects" folder, delete both "Aircraft" and "Decals" folders.
2) Uncompress "USAF RED FLAG..." zip file...
3) Copy the contents of "To_Mod_Folder" to your SF2 Nellis Mod Folder. Overwrite.


* Last steps...
1) Copy the "INITNELLIS.BMP" file from the new "Red Flag Nellis" Mod folder to "C:\...\Thirdwire\Menu" folder...
2) Edit "C:\...\Thirdwire\StrikeFighters2 Nellis.ini"...
a) Under [startup], change "LoadingScreen=" from "Menu\INITSCREEN.BMP" to "Menu\INITNELLIS.BMP". Save.
3) Edit "C:\Users\<Your_Name>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 Nellis\Options.ini" file.
a) Under [instantAction], change "MissionMap=" from "GermanyCE" to "NELLIS_RANGE". Save.


* Now you have completed the install of the "USAF Red Flag Nellis AFB" and "Nellis Range" mod packs.
* I recommend setting the Enemy AI to "Hard" to get the most of this pack.
* Install any new or your favorite plane mods to test at the Nellis AFB.
