About This File

F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter Version 2.2 BETA Release

A USAF Version

B USMC Version

C USN Version

 

for the SFP1/WOx series beta Version 2.0

 

With thanks to Dave, JSF Aggie, JAT81500, Amokfloo, and especially FastCargo

 

This is a Beta Release, I have to appologize that I simply don't have the time at present to finish up the cockpit, but I hope to have it finished someday! Meantime, I'm happy with the flight model, radar and weapon delivery, I'm afraid the AI is somewhat lacking when it comes to engaging with AA missiles from the weapons bays.

 

Templates are included.

 

A few notes about flying the F-35:

 

This model has only been confirmed to work in 1st Generation TW Sims (SFP1/WOx). It has not been fully tested in 2nd generation sims (SF2,SFV).

 

The AI still has problems in hard mode doing an approach to landing in the A and B models. We are still working on that.

 

The B model VTOL mode has been made to be very similiar to the real thing in terms of performance. What that means is don't try VTOL mode fully loaded out...you won't get anywhere...literally. Plan to be publically ridiculed if you post a question on the forum asking how to do to a vertical takeoff fully loaded.

 

Also, the real thing will not allow you to engage afterburner in VTOL...this limitation was not possible to implement in the TW sims. What that means is if you go to afterburner while in VTOL mode...bad things will happen VERY quickly.

 

Speaking of the B model, for some reason, the nozzle will not animate open or closed. Several things have been tried to get it to work with no success...we are not sure why this is broken, especially since it works in the other models.

 

To install:

 

Effects in the Effects folder

Objects in the Objects folder

Sounds in the Sounds folder

 

Please do not release modified files for this aircraft without my written consent, you are welcome to release any skins you like using the included templates. As always, any use of this mod for commercial ventures is strictly prohibited unless included in a future official Thirdwire Release.

 

The creators of this mod are not responsible to any damage to hardware or software as a result of installation. As always: BACK UP YOUR FILES!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Constructive criticism is always appreciated, but please be nice; I'm emotionally delicate, like a flower. :lol:

 

Clear Skies and Check Six!

The USN and USMC skins are basically up to the end user to make what they like. I will more than likely sponser another contest at CA for the best skins for the F-35B/C versions.

 Fantastic Aircraft! I love the A version. The radar is just so smooth. Handles perfectly. Auto bay doors. There is a problem with the GAU not installing correctly, but easy to solve. In the B version the STOVL is written perfectly. This is a must have add on. The thing I'll add (bad thing I don't know how to) is more function for the cockpit's LCDs like the EF-2000.

Its a bit hard to get new aircarft when the goverment spends 3.6 Billion dollers on upgrading 6 helos that are 30 years old, And the new systems dont take in old systems. Its not so much we need new aircraft.. We need a new country. True our remaining F-111's of 12 with 6 sqn will be out at the end of the year.That 2010. And we'll have all new F/A-18F... But did you know that out of 57 F-111's that where in operation have now been cut to just 24 Superhornets... Our ageing Hornets wont be replaced any time soon.. And all this talk about us buy the F-22 Rator is just ADFG.. Untill the US lifts the export embargo on the F-22 We wont get that.. As for the F-35.. We where to get them in 2002.. But cost over run.. Now its not untill 2021... From what I have read we are only buying 14 F-35B's valued at $3.2bn each.. a lot of money.. more so when you dont have it.
