SF2 F-104 Starfighter Super Mega Pack 2016 v3.5
By Viper63a et al!



NOTE1: If you already downloaded version 3.1, you just need to download and install the patch to upgrade from version 3.1 to 3.5 Please read the Read Me in the Patch file.

NOTE2: This mod WILL replace stock F-104s and may conflict with any other F-104 mod you may have installed - SO BACK UP unless you crave drama! SF2 Europe (merged or not) and DLC28 is REQUIRED, REALLY. If you don't have these, this mod will not work for you.


After flying FastCargo's excellent "Classified Mission Mod (Version 1.1)" pack, I got re-introduced to the F-104 Starfighters. So take a look at FastCargo's mod in the link below. Some install work is required, but well worth it....


Firstly - I take NO CREDIT for the work contained in this pack. I made some of them better (All new skins, decals...etc), but I was not the creator. I am just a reflection of the excellent work that can be found here in CA. So here is my humble contribution to the collective. Thank you all for your mod packs!

What's in this pack? In a nutshell, I downloaded some F-104 mods to check out the 104s (turned into downloading almost ALL of them, two of the best being Wrench's DLC28 F-104 Pack and MigBusters "Thirdwire F-104A/C Pack 1 1.0 " pack. Then added a bunch of other packs that caught my eye. There were lots of conflicts, broken decal links, leaking LODs...etc etc...So I started merging - fixing - reskinning - re-decaling and generally upgrading all the packs into one merged and hopefully easier to install pack. This is my "Best of the breed" F-104 Super Pack and I thought you may like a copy. Again, SF2E and DLC28 are REQUIRED, but other than that, everything else is in this pack to start flying the F-104 Starfighters.


This pack includes F-104 skins, new pilots, hanger, loading, loadout, decals and everything else you need to start flying the F-104s...



If you find any issues or concerns, please let me know via the Support Topic section for this mod...



As always, I recommend that you back up your mod folder before you install any new mod...just in case.

* To install, simply unzip and copy the contents of the "To_Mod_Folder" folder to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder and Overwrite (if needed).

My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...

C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2...

Original "Readmes" are in the Extra folder with some other goodies...




Special Thanks!

I would like to take a minute and thank these people for taking the time to contact me with fixes, upgrades and assistance to make this a better package! THANKS!

KJakker - Major help with upgrading the cockpits! Thanks!

Fanatic Modder for his assistance, INI files and corrections!

After initial public review...Version 2 is up...fixes, enhancements and new stuff...


If you installed Version 1, I recommend that you delete all the previous "F-104*" folders from the ...\Objects\Aircraft and Decals folders before you install version 2. You don't have to, but if you don't, you will retain a bunch of dupe files I removed in version 2.

Specialized interceptor version of the F-104G for the Japanese ASDF, built under license by Mitsubishi for the air-superiority fighter role, armed with cannon and four Sidewinders; no strike capability. Some were converted to UF-104J radio-controlled target drones and destroyed. Total of 210 built, three built by Lockheed, 29 built by Mitsubushi from Lockheed built components and 178 built by Mitsubishi. After retired in Japan, U.S. delivered some 104J/DJs to the airforce of Taiwan.


Dual-control trainer version of F-104J for Japanese Air Self-Defense Force, 20 built by Lockheed and assembled by Mitsubishi. After retired in Japan, U.S. delivered some 104J/DJs to the airforce of Taiwan.

Well I have to say that I have several more F-104s sitting quietly on my HD for years.

Some "real" F-104D/DJ; F-104F and more ...

I have some AMI, RDAF, RCAF, RoCaF revised skins too, never uploaded and a whole new RF-104 mod.

All shared with my real friend Spillone (his name tells all).

All project were stopped when a new model seemed (as sometimes happens) to arrive.

Quality is quality.

Now I could even think to realise as new model seems to never take off.

But not to be part of this pack.
