Improved Afterburner Effects for Strike Fighters 2


Improved Afterburner Effects for Strike Fighters 2 V1.0

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Installation:

 

Put the .INI and .TGA files in the Effects folder.

User\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFihgters2\Effects

 

<<<VERY IMPORTANT!>>>

 

Then the real work begins:

 

Open the DATA.ini of the aircraft you want to use these effects.

 

Since this effect is a combination of 2 emitters, one volumetric and the other in the form of a ribbon(for shock diamonds)... You need to duplicate the engine or engines in this way:

 

(As exhample the F-105 is used)

 

[Fuselage]

SKIP ALL THE PARAMETERS

 

SystemName[001]=Engine

SystemName[002]=Tailhook

SystemName[003]=Airbrake1

SystemName[004]=Airbrake2

SystemName[005]=Airbrake3

SystemName[006]=Airbrake4

SystemName[007]=AftTank

SystemName[008]=BombbayTank

SystemName[009]=CenterlineStation

SystemName[010]=TopFuselageLight

SystemName[011]=Engine2 ADD THE NEW ENGINE

 

 

Edit the afterburner emitter on the first engine:

 

[Engine]

AfterburnerEmitterName=J79-ABEmitter CHANGE TO THIS ONE

 

Then add the second engine below the first true one.

Awesome !!

 

Just modded one for the Phantom.

Questions: I put in two extra engines. Do the EngineIDs need to be set to 3 and 4?

Also how about the Armor, is it irrelevant in this case?

 

Thanks :good:

Engine ID is used for instruments in the cockpit. I guess is irrilevant if the engines are called 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2 again. For the armor I think it changes nothing since it will only protect with the same value the fake engine.
