F-15C/E Default Skin Enhancements

Recommended Posts

F-15C/E Default Skin Enhancements


Since at least Flaming Cliffs 3 Beta 1.2.2.7570, the left and right patches on the F-15C pilots are reversed (the squadron patch should be on the right shoulder and the organizational/aircraft patch should be on the left). Additionally, all F-15 pilots wear unit patches on their flightsuits except for the 19th Fighter Squadron out of Elmendorf AFB, AK.

 

This mod places the patches on the appropriate shoulder in accordance with USAF uniform regulations, and provides the pilots of the 19th FS Fighting Gamecocks with accurate squadron and wing patches as well as an organizational F-15 patch for the left shoulder.

 

Additionally, the mod adds squadron insignia to the crews in the default USAF F-15E skins, and adds and enhances Israeli Pilot/WSO textures for the IAF F-15C/E skins.

 

Finally, the mod replaces the brown captain insignia on the USAF desert flightsuit with the proper black insignia.

 

 

Installation (JSGME):

This archive file is structured so that you need only create a folder in your JSGME Mods folder for the F-15 Enhancements, then copy this folder tree into that new folder. Then enable the mod using JSGME.

 

Installation (Manual):

Prior to extraction, back up all default F-15C/E liveries ( Bazar\Liveries\F-15C\ and Bazar\Liveries\F-15E\).

 

Extract all files to your DCS World folder with the included folder structure intact. This will add the replacement graphics to the Bazar\TempTextures folder and overwrite the description.lua files in your folders.

 

 

Removal (Manual):

Remove the following files from Bazar\TempTextures:

pilot_f15_00_b.bmp.ddspilot_f15_01_a.bmp.ddspilot_f15_01_b.bmp.ddspilot_f15_00_IDF_a.ddspilot_f15_01_IDF_a.ddspilot_f15_patch_58_sqdn.tga.ddspilot_f15_patch_65a_sqdn.tga.ddspilot_f15_patch_65b_sqdn.tga.ddspilot_f15_patch_106_sqdn.tga.ddspilot_f15_patch_390_sqdn.tga.ddspilot_f15_patch_493_sqdn.tga.dds

Restore your backup description.lua files to the appropriate folders in Bazar\Liveries\F-15C and Bazar\Liveries\F-15E. If you did not back up your original description. lua, then for the F-15C you can delete the last line in the files (regarding the helmet), and delete the line referencing pilot_f15_patch_19_sqdn in the 19th Fighter SQN (AK) folder. For the F-15E you can delete all lines including and after the entry "--added by HF", then delete the pilot*.dds files in the folders.

 

 

Custom Helmets (optional):

One thing I discovered when making use of custom helmets: if you have a custom helmet on one skin, you need to add a helmet line to the description.lua of every skin of that aircraft type, else you will get corrupted textures when displaying different skins. To assist in this, I have placed a line in the 19th Fighter SQN (AK) description.ini (currently remmed out) that you can place in every one of your F-15C skins that is not using a custom helmet. I left the line remmed out because adding this line without adding it in other description.ini files will cause the same texture corruption.

 

 

Enjoy!

      SF2 F-15C Oregon Air National Guard Add-On for the SF2 F-15 Eagle Super Pack Redux 2018 Pack - The Mudhen Team   Please note that this pack is not compatible with the Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack...You can make it work with some tweaking, but this pack was designed as an "Add-On" for the "SF2 F-15 Eagle Super Pack Redux 2018" Pack. Please do not install it and expect this pack to work with the Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack because they are both F-15 packs...   You can install this pack "As-Is" (but not over Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack, see above), but you need the "SF2 F-15 Eagle Super Pack Redux 2018" pack to fully enjoy this pack. If you use it as a stand-alone, some weapons, effects or other things may\will be missing. You will have a flyable plane, but miss out on some bells and whistles. I recommend the full pack below.     You can get the "SF2 F-15 Eagle Super Pack Redux 2018" pack here...    
      -------------------------------------------------------------
      What is in this pack:

At least the "Effects" and "Weapons" folders from the pack.   >> WARNING! I have not tested this pack with Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack...Pretty sure there will be problems, so I do not recommend installing this pack over the Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack. If you want to test it out,  rename the  "F-15C_02" folder in your...Objects\Aircraft mod folder...if it exists. You can then install this pack. You may be missing some weapons or effects, but you should be able to test fly the plane. After you're done, you can rename the folders back or reconcile the folders to get this pack to work with Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack.   !!
