SF2V - Enjoying the SPAD!

Recommended Posts

This is the main reason I got SF2V, and I'm thrilled to bits with it! So I've fitted the cockpit from somebody's Royal Navy What-if Skyraider - I wish I knew whose! - and fiddled about a bit to get the decals working... Love it! Don't nitpick the skins too much - I have no idea at all about USAF, USN or VNAF markings.

The skyraider mk.1 was mine.

Suspected it might be!

 

Would you agree to my pillaging it for parts to release a flyable version for SF2V? :smile:

If you can wait a bit, when Monty finishes redoing the LODs for his A-1H, and the new package is releaed, you can have a WHOLE new, repainted, properllerized A-4B cockpit. (since these AF versions didn't use their radar, and most had the scope removed from the pit, and blocked off -which works out just fine using the Scooter B's pit)

 

(the gauges ACTUALLY work! and more or less read correctly!!!) I'll try to get a screenie up later today.

Ok, as promised, here's the repainted, relettered, readjusted not-even-close-to-real-life ™ Stand-In Generic ™ propeller pit for Monty's SPAD.

 

all the needles have been recalibrated (and what a frakking nightmare THAT is!), although I'm not happy with the temp gauge -- can't quite get the needle to stay down in the 100-250 deg range.

Also, there's 2 easter eggs in/on the pit ... one you can't see (excepty by viewing the panel.bmp, as that FIRE warning light on the right covers it up. Damn, it was a funny one too!!), the other is on the clock face, right now hidden by the hands.

 

Nigel, since I don't have SF2V yet, if you want to Test Fly it for me in the stock 3W SPAD, shoot me a PM, and I'll get the files to you, via a link from my site. Right now, it's all set up for WoE in the 08 patch level. I DO know it works just fine in SF2, as I've been testing Monty's new A-1H rebuild in there. So, theroetically .....

 

Like I always say, it ain't perfect, but it works and it's freeware

Never gotten used to the slowness of the plane.

Bombing techniques for jets don't work nicely.
