Hi

 

I have tried adding the F-4M from WOE to SF2 but it does not show up in the Aircraft list.

I have copied it into the objects\aircraft folder....

 

Do I need to copy avionics files or cockpits...any ideas

 

Thanks,

Yes you need the LOD's, all the ini's, the skins, the whole shibang.

I've been meaning to do this since I've had SF2 and just had a quick go.

 

Copy the F-4M aircraft folder from WOE to SF2 (at this stage you won't be able to fly so don't bother trying)

 

Using the cat extractor - extract everything 'F-4M' from WOE and put it into your F-4M folder (at this stage you can fly but have no cockpit and an unobstructed brilliant view :wink: )

 

Paste this into the top part of your F-4M configuration file and you can fly with a cockpit

 

[AircraftData]

AircraftFullName=Phantom FGR.2

AircraftShortName=F-4

AircraftDataFile=F-4M_data.ini

LoadoutFile=F-4J_loadout.ini

CockpitDataFile=F-4J_cockpit.ini

LoadoutImage=F-4J_loadout.tga

UserList=F-4J_UserList.ini

HangarScreen=F-4J_hangar.bmp

LoadingScreen=F-4J_Loading.bmp

AvionicsDLL=Avionics60.dll

AvionicsDataFilename=F-4J_avionics.ini

 

 

The above works (for I was that soldier) but there might be further refinements to make but at least you'll be up and running. BTW, you won't have the proper F-4M decals which can be further extracted but that's for you to sort out!

For the engines, I'd recommend changing the relevant lines in the data.ini

 

ExhaustEmitterName=CleanExhaustEmitter

ExhaustPosition=0.65,-3.63,-0.58

AfterburnerNodeName=afterburner

AfterburnerEmitterName=F100AfterburnerEmitter

 

(remember to do both)

This entry (from the F-4D_67) will get the SUU-23 gun pod to show up;

 

[CenterlineStation]

SystemType=WEAPON_STATION

StationID=5

StationGroupID=6

StationType=EXTERNAL

AttachmentPosition=0.0,0.37,-1.01

AttachmentAngles=0.0,-2.0,0.0

LoadLimit=2050

AllowedWeaponClass=BOMB,LGB,NUC,GP,LP,IFP,DLP,MER,RCN

AttachmentType=NATO,USAF

ModelNodeName=pylon_centerline

PylonMass=32.21

PylonDragArea=0.02

LaunchRailNodeName=

MinExtentPosition=

MaxExtentPosition=

 

(copy and paste over the similar entry on the F-4M)

Phantom FGR.2 of No.8 squadron (N.B. did not fly the F-4 in reality)

 

The decals from my FGR.5 fit just fine. One day I'll revise the serial numbers.

Spinners, quick question. Do you plan on doing the f-104 and 105 in RAF markings for sf2? thx.

 

The F-105 is already available!

Edit: Sincere apologies! The above is for WOE.

 

As for the F-104 it could be a bit tricky as the LODs are not in SF2 - I think this is because of a problem with Lockheed :dntknw:

Just for info, the decals need to be dumped into a central "decals" folder in your objects folder. Then you need to go into decals.ini and remove the path leading to the "D" subfolder in the skin folder.

 

Like this:

 

[Decal001]

MeshName=vertical_stabilizer

DecalLevel=2

DecalFacing=RIGHT

FilenameFormat=F-4E_IDF/1/d/f42kn

Position=-3.90,1.30

Rotation=0.0

Scale=0.85

DecalMaxLOD=3

 

becomes

 

[Decal001]

MeshName=vertical_stabilizer

DecalLevel=2

DecalFacing=RIGHT

FilenameFormat=f42kn

Position=-3.90,1.30

Rotation=0.0

Scale=0.85

DecalMaxLOD=3

 

The trouble is that some of the more obvious decal names have already been used, so you'll need to change them.
