[Fictional] English Electric Lightning F.3S Flygvapnet


English Electric Lightning F.3S for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2

 

This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire Lightning F.3 to create a fictional export version in service with the equally fictional 'Acro Blixt' aerobatic display team (based on the real world Acro Deltas) of the Swedish Flygvapnet. This little update simply introduces a regular squadron (F13) and adds a screenshot.

 

It goes without saying that you must have the stock Third Wire Lightning F.3 in your install meaning that you must have Expansion Pack 2 for Strike Fighters 2 Europe.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the LightningF3S folder into your Aircraft folder.

 

2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the LightningF3S folder into your main Decals folder.

 

3. From the PILOTS folder drag and drop the PILOT_ACRO folder into you main Pilots folder.

 

4. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the Rb22 & Rb25 folders into your main Weapons folder.

 

CREDITS

 

Thanks to TK and Third Wire for the continuous improvement of a great little game/sim.

 

And thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

 

Regards

 

Spinners

      Fiat G.55 Centauro for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of Veltro2K's Fiat G.55 Centauro to create a fictional Fiat G.55 Centauro in service with the Turkish Air Force in the 1944-1949 timeline. Also included is a Parani Army Air Force skin (in fact, this mod is set up as a Parani aircraft).

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Centauro folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Centauro folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the Bf109G folder into your Sounds folder.
      4. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop all three folders into your Weapons folder.
      That's it, although you might want to use the WW2 pilot of your choice. Please note that the 3D model has a tiny bit of 'decal bleed' on the port side of the nose.

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Thanks to Veltro2K for making the G.55 Centauro 3D model.
      Thanks to Charles for the original skins and also for the flight model.
      Thanks to Kesselbrut and Capun for the cockpit.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.

      >For Strike Fighters 2 games
      This is my sky enhancement mod. It also combines the work of many other modders, in order to provide a realistic, better looking sky. Here below a quick summary of the changes:
      -Tweaked sky colours, something in between Cellinsky's widesky and the stock SF2 colours.
      -More realistic Night colours, sky and ambient are much darker.
      -More atmospheric, reddish transition from Twilight to Night.
      -New "dark blue" High Altitude colours (fly near space with a NF-104).
      -Moon produces a yellowish light instead of the default purple.
      -Sky is "wider" much like Cellinsky's widesky mod (background horizon clouds are bigger and more noticeable).
      -Added beautiful cloud graphics made by ShrikeHawk, different for each weather type.
      -Added a low number of stray clouds to Clear weather.
      -Added noticeable clouds to Overcast weather and Inclement weather, "fixing" a known SF2 "bug".
      -Combined various mods to produce a more interesting Rain Effect under Inclement weather.
      -Added Stary's lens flare effects from the SARCASM 2 mod, in place of Cellinsky's widesky effects.
      -Added Cloud Layer graphics by Stary, Fubar512 and Brain32.
      -Reworked secondary atmospheric effects, such as contrails and wingtip vortexes.
      In addition, the package includes alternative environment configuration files; they enable different effects for the Inclement weather. You can choose between thunderstorm (default, adapt for most terrains), snowstorm (for cold, icy terrains) and sandstorm (for hot, desert terrains).
      For those who wish not to change the effect globally, I highly suggest to try the included terrain-specific environment files, provided for both stock terrains and custom ones I released; the default global effect is thunderstorm, while terrains with their own environment file either use sandstorm or snowstorm as appropriate. Use this as a basis to customize other terrains.
      It's recommeded to set the game's Effects to High in the Options menu. By setting the Effects to Unlimited, the game uses a pointless DirectX 10 post processing effect; the stock game's post processing shader generates a horrible bloom effect which excessively blinds the player during Twilight transitions. I have included an alternative post processing shader (TWPOSTPROCESS.FX) in order to disable the faulty bloom effect; it provides a minor bloom effect when looking directly at the sun, so it's miles better than what the stock game offers. However, if you want to gain more FPS, it's better not to play the game with Effects set to Unlimited.

      >Credits (in no particular order):
      -Cellinsky, for his fantastic widesky mod from which I borrowed some tweaks.
      -Stary, for his Thunderstorm and Heavy Snowfall weather mods, and his SARCASM 2 beta mod from which I borrowed some effects.
      -PanamaRed, for tweaks in regards to Clouds (especially the Broken weather ones).
      -Fubar512 and Brain32, for their Cloud Layer Top bitmaps, which I have smoothed for a better looking effect.
      -ShrikeHawk, for his CloudSkins mods, from which I took the spectacular cloud graphics.
      -BearGryllis, for his Thunderstorm Pack With Enhanced Lightnings 2.0b package.
      -Orsin, for his Improved Rain Effect and Heavy Rain 0.8 mods.
      -luk1978, for his interesting WeatherEffect package.
      -ArmedLightning, for his Special FX v2.2 mod for the GTR 2 game, from which I borrowed a lens flare effect.
      -baffmeister, for the idea of recreating sandstorm weather effects.
      -tiopilotos, for suggesting improvements on other subjects.
      -Eagle114th, for his Improved Wingtip Vortex mod which I have reworked.
      -JosefK, guuruu and Coupi, for their interest and support.
      I included the original readme files from the mentioned mods, where available, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

      View File [Fictional] RAF SEPECAT Jaguar FGR.3
      SEPECAT Jaguar FGR.3 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
      This is a simple mod of the excellent 'The Mirage Factory' Jaguar GR.1 to give a 'what if' Jaguar FGR.3 tactical fighter with markings for No.45 and No.58 squadrons of No.38 Group, RAF Strike Command. This revision now also includes a desert camo skin for No.112 squadron and uses a revised 3D model.

      BACKSTORY
      In 1974 a cancelled export order for 50 Jaguar Internationals left the SEPECAT consortium with a headache as many 'long lead' items had already been ordered and assembly was already underway on the first 12 airframes. At this time the RAF were keen to order more Jaguars to form a second wing of No.38 Group, RAF Strike Command and, with the delays in the Tornado production programme meaning a shortage of work at BAC's Warton factory,  BAC pushed the Labour government into accepting a deal for all 50 aircraft. Some consideration was given to standardising the aircraft to match the RAF's GR.1 force but the uprated Adour engines and different avionics saw the aircraft confusingly designated as the Jaguar FGR.3.
      Entering service in early 1977 the Jaguar FGR.3's served with No.45 and No.58 squadrons as part of No.38 Group and also with a reformed No.112 Squadron detached to RAF Near East Air Force. The FGR.3's uprated Adour engines and early introduction of overwing missile rails made them something of an elite element within the RAF's Jaguar force and they were deployed to many hot-spots around the world until their somewhat premature retirement in 2002.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the JaguarFGR3 folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the JaguarFGR3 folder into your Decals folder.
      3. Empty the contents of the WEAPONS folder into your Weapons folder
      4. Empty the contents of the PILOTS folder into your main Pilots folder.
      5. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the Adour sound file into your Sounds folder.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Massive thanks to everyone at 'The Mirage Factory' (RIP Oli).
      Special thanks to sundowner for both skins used in this revised upload and also for his permission to use his revised LOD with built-in drop tanks.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
