Showtime vs 3020 Mission for WoV

Recommended Posts

Here's a quick 'n dirty mission, a virtual rematch between Showtime 100 and VPAF 3020, just east of the Hai Doung rail yard. For hose of you unfamiliar with the event, read here, Courtesy of Don Holloway: Showtime for a Topgun

 

You will need Phamtuan's 3020 skin for the MiG-17F. Make sure that it's installed as the number six [006] texture set. For the F-4B, I used the VF-96 Fighting Falcon's skin for the F-4J from Column 5 (available at his site, of course), and renamed the bitmaps so they are recognized by the F-4B's lod. I also recommend that you install Streakeagle's F-4B FM, or at least his F-4B loadout.ini, which eliminates the centerline gunpod. Installing the Uber AI mod is also recommended, as it will bring out the "Colonel Tomb" that's hiding in the WoV AI

 

One last thing, before we get down to the nitty-gritty; Extract the Nations.ini from your WoV/Flight/missiondata.cat, and edit the entry pilot tarining standard for North Vietnam (number 26, if I'm not mistaken), so it reads "Excellent".

 

*NOTE*

I've set the Enemy Air defense activity level to zero, as you'll be flying over the most heavily defended area in WoV's terrain map, and even if defenses are set to "light", you'll probably get waxed by a SAM before you even encounter the MiG. If you're feeling brave, just ratchet it up to "1".

 

Last but not least, copy and paste the data below onto word pad, and save as type, "all files", name it Showtime_vs_3020.msn, and save it in your WoV Missions folder.

Edit and Update:

 

I've gotten so carried away with Streakeagle's F-4B FM, that I've overlooked an important (and historical) fact: Showtime 100 was a 'J model, not a B. I've edited my original post to refelect this.

 

My apologies ;)

From where I am sitting, it still says F-4B in both places ;)

 

Glad you are enjoying the flight model :)
