Update for Tornado GR1/GR4 by Dave/Sundowner V3.2 (GR4 Decals)




This'll be my last update for the Tornado Pack V3.0 by Dave and Sundowner available here - url]http://combatace.com/files/file/12320-tornado-gr1gr4-for-sf2/[/url] as I can't think of anything else I can change/fix.


This bulk of this update is the missing GR4 decal folder which has now been added to the mod. Each Sqn now has it's own individual A/C numbers & year dependant Fleet codes (GR4_98 is 2 letters, GR4_06 is 3 numbers) and I've included 2 special "Anniversary" decals for 12Sqn and 617Sqn. These are placed on 1 Aircraft from each Sqn only. The 617sqn 60th Anniversary Decals can be found on ZA370 in the GR4_98 only. The 12Sqn 90th Anniversary Decals can be found on ZD650 in the GR4_06 only. I've also changed both the 12Sqn and 617Sqn GR4_06 skins (12Sqn had GR1 nose marking and 617Sqn has a different tail tip marking). One point to note is that 617Sqn are the only Sqn in the RAF to retain there WW2 style "Fleet Codes" which is why theirs look different to all the others.


I've also tweaked the mirrors for all the GR1 variants as the "nose" wasn't showing allowing you to see through the model into the undercarriage etc. One issue I found with that is that the image in the mirrors is set as though the cockpit is actually higher than it it is (like the mirrors are about 2ft above the cockpit). I'll be having a play to see whether it's fixable without breaking the current cockpit view but I consider it a minor issue.


Lastly I've changed the Storm Shadow jet exhaust effect from 2d to 3d for a better look (Thanks Fubar512 for the help)





Unzip then simply copy and paste into your Mod folder (usually C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 etc) and allow it to over-write. Tested on a Nov '11 patched Full Merged and SF2:Europe Only.





I've never done any Decals before so the folks here who helped out in the many "Help" threads I started really made this possible - DTMDragon, Spinners & Wrench
