About This File
Vought F4U-5 Corsair, Fuerza Aérea Hondureña (Honduran Air Force) for SF/WoV/WoE/WoI and probably SF2
-Part of an on-going series of mods recreating Central American Airpower
This is a modification of The Mirage Factory's F4U-7 (French Navy version), into the earlier, and almost identical (albiet modified), F4U-5 version as used by the Honduran Air Force in the 1950s and 60s. This mod is VERY similiar to the Korean Era F4U-4B mod I released in 2008.
This pak contains -almost- everything you'll need to create this new version, minus a few critical files that you'll need to copy from the original F4U-7. So you MUST have the -7 somewhere to copy them from. If not, you can download it from Check6 (TMF Home Site), Column5 or CombatAce
This is to be considered as an "incomplete" aircraft mod, due to the non-inclusion of certain files. I've NOT included the aircraft LOD files nor the cockpit folder. See below "To Install" for a complete list of the necessary parts.
I've included all the inis I've modified, so you'll be copying the minimum number of bits. You also get a new WoE style Hangar screen, all the weapons in the new "folder format" for use in post-patch installs, and in EACH weapons folder is a _data.ini as used by SF2. Unfortunately, as I don't have SF2, some experimentation on your part will be required to install and get them up and running.
The skins are "pieces parts", dejumbled together from the stock ones that came with the aircraft when released. New, historical individual number decals are included. The numbers.lst, while included, is NOT active, to prevent 'running out of numbers in game'. It's just renamed, so it's easy to reactiveate it.
This mod is designed for use with the, I'm hoping, ANY weapons pak. You may just need to add a few things.
= IMPORTANT: This aircraft has been tested in Post-Patch SF/WoV/WoE/WoI. Be advised of the existence of some handling issues prevelant in WW2 era aircraft. Fly accordingly!!! It should also work in SF2 and later iterations - this has NOT been tested, however.(as I ain't got it!)
PLEASE read the enclosed readme for FULL, detailed install instructions!! It's Important!!
