About This File

SLUFs of grey.

Simple skin pack with a few sets of skins for US Navy A-7E Corsair II. This mod covers late years of use. 

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.

To run this mod you need also access to TW lod files from SF2 Series.

I highly recommend creating a new aircraft - for example A-7E_83. I have added a data file that will add a new pilot and new SJU seat along with HUD inside the cockpit. Just an eye candy thing.  At the end of 1982, Navy SLUFs started to receive new seats and some minor upgrades in avionics. 

A-7E_83_Data will add a new pilot, new seat, make openable canopy and foldable wings. Adds landing light and removes Fuel tanks model objects from stations 2 and 7. As A-7 can not carry fuel tanks there. (you can use this remove_mod from a file on older Corairs also)

The rest of the data file is basically stock one. So still no proper loadouts, rails for Shrikes / HARMs etc. If there will be demand I can upload new highly modified ini files at some point in the future/near future. 

Skins cover the years 1983-1991 for the Atlantic and Pacific Fleet.  Decal set for 'Desert Shiled' VA-46 and VA-72 is slightly different than in the ODS-30AE pack. (it is downgraded so I recommend not messing with this - mixing with original ODS)

Pack contains skins and decals. I have included also decals from the previous pack for hi-viz SLUF. So perhaps you can skip this folder but to be sure you can simply overwrite it. I believe there are two more serial numbers for VA-81 /1986.

Skins sets are made in pairs - two squadrons for CVW for a specific year. 

Skin-set for 1986 VA-82 has one small 'bug' In 1986 they were painting bird flying through A in AJ tail code. But I could not find a clear photo of it. So I decided to go without a bird. This is subject to possible updates of the pack in the future. 

I could not find all proper BuNo / Modex but I am considering this as ongoing work in progress, so one day if I will learn something new there will be an update. Also, not all squadrons have CAG markings, sometimes i could not find info on markings...so I left it, again there might be an update if new info appears.

I believe that pack after unp[backing is around 1GB. So make some space for SLUF.

All skins, new bump maps, specular and decals are made by me. 

 

report bugs.

enjoy.

P.S.

This is huge, a lot of copy-paste for me, all decals.ini, textur.ini, etc...So if you will find that one decal is not showing up or something...just check first - maybe there is some bug in *.ini file. No need to panic! Fix, post solution, etc... So others can benefit from your fix. 

I put a lot of effort and time, checked everything twice..still gremlins can appear. 

 

QUICK FIX!

I just uploaded an additional seat called - seat_SJU-8. This is the proper seat that is required by optional data.ini.
