SF2 WW2 ETO Bristol Beaufighter TF.X, v.9 by Cocas 1/2/2016
-- Something for the WW2 ETO players --
= For SF2, Full-5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*This mod will =NOT= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs, at any patch level. It was built for SF2 ONLY!!.*
*Note x2: This mod represents both early and late production Beau TF Mk.X for ETO and MTO** usage ONLY! Seperate versions for other theatres, will be released when and as they are finshed.
We are calling this "version 0.9", as there exists the possibility, at some point in the future, of more work being done. But, we wanted to get them out into the hands of our WW2 End Users for their examination, flying pleasures and so forth.*
**= will require new squadron code and/or individual aircraft letter decals. But the paint scheme is the same for MTO usage, in the aircraft lifespan/timeframe. However, SEAC/SoWesPac are completely different, and will require the release of "theatre specific" versions.
This is a BRAND NEW aircraft, brought to you by Cocas Aircraft Factory & Co. This package contains 2 complete aircraft, representing the Beaufighter TF Mk.X in both it's iterations.
This pack contains the following aircraft & skin/decal sets:
Beaufighter TF Mk.X (Early)
No.254 Squadron -- all of North Coates Strike Wing, Coastal Command
Beaufighter TF MK.X (Late)
No.254 Squadron, CC
The TF Mk.X (Early) has the rear flex MG, no radar and no fin extension.
The TF Mk.X (Late) is the final produciton verison, with thimble nose radar, rear flex gun, and the tail fin extension.
The Squadron Crest is used as the paint chip seen on the Loadout Screen. Skins are in jpg format. Everything is included (weapons, pilot figures, sounds, etc), excepting the guns (you should have all these already).
All markings are decals, and decal randomization is set to TRUE. Other squadrons can easily be reproduced by creating new squadon code letters (either for ETO or MTO usage). As is my habit, a sample bmp is left in the Decals folder so you can match the font and size.
All serials, while correct for the variant depicted, should be considered 'generic' in nature, as they represent no specific aircraft with the unit(s) represented.
When in-game, you'll see:
Beaufighter TF Mk.X (Early) (CAF)
Beaufighter TF Mk.X (Late) (CAF)
on the aircraft selection drop-down for this aircraft. The "CAF" (for Cocas Aircraft Factory) will diferentiate these Beaus from any others you may or may not have. It =IS= designed to replace any other Beaus of this type from "other sources".
As always, fairly easy to follow, yet detailed install instructions are included. So, please =READ= them BEFORE installing this mod!!!. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too.
