About This File

AV-8B Harrier II. 

This is my humble rework of AV-8B.

Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 

It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.

 

Around 2 years ago - January 2016 -  KillerBee approach me with the possibility of updating bobrock's harrier.  After some time, we had prepared the updated file ready for upload. Small changes here and there corrected few things. And great skins by Killerbee.

And then KillerBee disappeared from CA forum. Honestly, up to now, I have no contact with him. last - 4th May 2016. 

So harrier stayed on drive waiting for his comeback. But .... I couldn't resist...And iI started to mod this again. Since I had no KB skin templates I had to do all new skins...and more.

So now I am here...

It ended with a new cockpit and a whole set of new skins and decals on whole remodeled 'old' Harrier. - there is no single part of an original model that hasn't be touched/remodeled etc.

First of all...If you want to count rivets....Do not. 

Many things could be done other way....but I did it my way. So you have to bear with it.

All skins are in 4096x4096 format. So you can easily resize down. If you have problems running this in game. Resize skins to lower resolutions

Decals are based on my and KillerBee research. All serials are correct for the first version of Harrier II. Not always (but mostly) correct for a unit/year of service etc.

Big Thanks to Ravenclaw - He send me file with new ALQ-164 pod. Now it is part of the upload. 

You will find separate upload soon with Operation Desert Storm skins and decals - Only units that participated in the operation.

For some reason, I have added weapons that are present in Loadout.ini. 

Animations:

1= canopy open - close

4= refueling probe - beware of a speed limit

Updated a few things in the cockpit and external LOD. Changes in loadouts, main Data, some small changes on skins. Some new sounds. Generally fixed a lot of small things. 

Added Ravenclaw's ALQ-164 pod. It is part of the main aircraft lod. Thank you! 

You can download only patch 2.0 if you have already the file from V1. Although I recommend downloading the whole pack again.

For some reason, I'm having a time getting this aircraft working. I'm thinking I'm putting everything in their proper places..but I'm not having any success. Did anyone else run into any problems with manually installing to folders?

I'm able to get to it in game - but I'm having a problem where the cockpit textures aren't showing up for some reason.

yes. Pilot_USMC to pilots folder. Like in any other mod.

Weapon to weapon, pilot to pilots folder . aircraft to aircrat, etc. 

Thanks! I'll create a new folder then and try one more time. It's just very odd. I have never seen this before.

I haven't changed any names or modified any files. I simply dragged and dropped the "Pilot_USMC" folder into the pilots folder inside the Objects folder. Screen shot attached.

You need to lower your graph settings, this is a high-res 3D model that needs a really strong graphics card.
