About This File
Hello SF2 flyers,
For several late 1930s and early WW2 prop aircraft, tweaks have been applied to the data inis, ranging from lift values for wings and wing tips to the engine section, prop rpms, flight control section, gears section, flaps, also empty weight, inertia values, ceilings, engine sounds, rudder reversal effect fix, aileron/elevator/rudder sensitivity and movement, etc., depending on the type tweaked. Tweaks are not as extensive as for my FE2 work - but I've tried to get them into the "90% realistic enough" category for SF2 since these higher performing types are difficult to precision peg to within a km or two of historical stats., in contrast to the slower-moving FE2 types.
Many thanks to the original FM modders for these prop types, including Baffmeister, Wrench, Cocas, MontyCZ, Charles of A-Team, Coupi, Paulopanz, and others I may not have mentioned here. The data inis are for SF2 installs only, tested at hard FM settings (no guarantees that the AI can land them nicely, although they fly them just fine). Please read the included "Read Me" file for more thorough information and also to access the links to the aircraft that have been tweaked.

What's New in Version 1.1.1
Jan. 23, 2020: Version 1.1 of the early WW2 FM update pack for SF2 includes the Tony Ki-60/early 61 and the Polikarpov I-15 gull wing biplane (with M22 engine variant) for the PTO theater, and the Gladiator Mk.I for the PTO and MTO theaters. Also included are post-damage physics fixes for the Polikarpov I-16 (Type 10) and more realistic fuel consumption on the Army Zero Ki-43.
Feb. 20, 2020: Version 1.1.1 - deleted useless "DS_store" files from package that were being generated on the OS X side of the Mac Pro. Simply a cosmetic tweak.
