SF2 F-111A Jets for Vietnam: The 428th, 429th and 430th TFS from Tahkli RTAFB


SF2 F-111A Jets for Vietnam: The 428th, 429th and 430th TFS from Tahkli RTAFB!
By Viper with INIs by Fanatic Modder

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

This mod was intended as an update to FastCargo's Super Vark Package (See link below), but it can be a standalone mod if you just want the USAF F-111s included in this pack. If you want to install both packs, FastCargo's pack must be installed first as that is the older pack.

You can get FastCargo's pack here...

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

What's included in this mod pack?
-------------------------------------------------------------

* F-111A Jets for Vietnam: The 428th, 429th and 430th TFS from Tahkli RTAFB!

http://combatace.com/files/file/15542-sf2-updated-f-111a-jets-for-vietnam-the-428th-429th-and-430th-tfs-from-tahkli-rtafb/

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

Installation:
-------------------------------------------------------------

I recommend that you back up your mod folder (or just the Effects, \Objects\Aircraft\F-111A, and \Objects\Decals\F-111A folders). I just make a copy the mod folder, try the mod, if I like it, I delete the backup. If I don't, I delete the new/updated mod folder and rename the old backup/copy back to the original names to reset to my original setup.

* To install, simply unzip and copy the contents of the "To_Mod_Folder" folder (the uncompressed "Effects and Objects" folders only) to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder and Overwrite.

My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...

C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2 Vietnam\

Note: You should be able to install this mod into any SF2 series, it doesn't have to be StrikeFighter2 Vietnam.

* To remove, simply delete the active "Effects and Objects" folders and replace with the back up copies you made prior to the install.

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

Add F111 SoundList
-------------------------------------------------------------

Lastly, Read the "Add F111 SoundList.txt" readme file on updating your your "Flight\SoundList.ini" file with the custiom F-111 sound files included in this pack.

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

Thats it - Enjoy!

Please report any bugs or issues via the "Support Topic" link...

Thanks Yakarov! I just uploaded version 3! This should be the best F-111A skin available on CombatAce!!! A lot of detail work went into it. Stuff you may have never even noticed with the original skins...lololol....

      Hi guys, i have a very big issue regarding one of my favourite games of all time: Strike Fighters: Project 1.
      I play this beautiful old game on my PC and i run it pretty well at lowest settings and 1920x1080p (i had ALSO to change "default graphic card option" to  my high-performances NVIDIA graphic card, due to the fact that the game heavily lags if i run it with the default graphic card option, even if it's all set on lowest settings).
      After i figured out this little issue, the game runs pretty smoothly and at an high framerate so, what's the problem?
      The problem is that whenever i hit or shoot down a plane or i look at an explosion, the game freezes for a couple of seconds...
      So i don't know what to do and why this happens…   
      Is that because Strike Fighters: Project 1 is too old for a modern medium-high end PC? (I used to play it also on my previous low end Windows XP PC, and i never had any kind of problem)
      Should i play the game at lower resolutions even if all settings are already at lowest?
      Why had i to choose my high-performances NVIDIA graphic card to play the game without lag even if it's an old and well optimized game?
      Please help me, i know SF:P1 is a very old game and i should go for SF2, but the first one is one of my favourite games of all time and THIS PROBLEM MAKES THE GAME UNPLAYABLE!!!
      THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH, cause this is a HUGE PROBLEM, i really have no idea of what to do and i'm very confused about what's happening...

      0.9 OPEN BETA FOR F-111 CCIP BY JOSEFK
      View File Here is a wad of avionics.ini mods for the SF2 F-111s by @FastCargo.  Now granted I recommend @viper63a's F-111 add-ons to graft on top of 'em you can get here: https://combatace.com/files/category/630-f-111/ 
      Basically what I've done is add a CCIP or Continuously Calculated Impact Point to the HUD.  The intent is to give you the chance to be a lot more accurate droping Mk 80-series dumb bombs in the F-111.  Especially since  there is no feedback when bombing from the Weapons System Operator/WSO in SF2.  
      Now I realize this isn't realistic for the days of the F-111 when there was absolutely NO helmet-mounted display that could project on top of a cockpit like now in 2020 with the Lightning IIs, Flankers, Fulcrums and arguably other front-line jets like the Super Hornet & Typhoon.  Frankly from the research I've done most of the F-111 variants with the exception of the D likely never got a CCIP.  The fact later models got a PAVE TACK to drop laser-guided bombs was a factor and of course, the F-111 had the Lead Computing Optical Sight that one can't program in SF2.  So this copy-paste job of mine could very well be the next best thing with at least a realistic icon big enough to have some decent risk of circular error.
      Maybe there is better, hence this being an open beta.  I would also like to incorporate terrain following into a bigger avionics upgrade... ;-).

      View File SF2 Cold War Prop and Flogger FM Tweaks
      Hello SF2 Flyers,
      For the post-WW2 prop. high-performance aircraft, several tweaks have been applied to the data inis, ranging from lift values for wings and wing tips to the engine section, prop. rpms, flight control section, gears section, flaps, also empty weight, inertia values, ceilings, engine sounds, rudder reversal effect fix, aileron/elevator/rudder sensitivity and movement, etc., depending on the type tweaked. Tweaks are not as extensive as for my FE2 work - but I've tried to get them into the "90% realistic enough" category for SF2 since these high-performance types are difficult to precision peg to within a km or two of historical stats., in contrast to the slower-moving FE2 types. Also included with this package are my minor data ini tweaks for several Flogger types, such as the MiG-23 S, early M, ML, P, MLA, late variant "98," and export variants MF and MS.
      Many thanks to the original FM modders for the late prop. types, including Baffmeister, Wrench, Cocas, MontyCZ, Charles of A-Team, Coupi, Paolopanz, and others I may not have mentioned here. The data inis are for SF2 installs only, tested at hard FM settings (no guarantees that the AI can land them nicely, although they fly them just fine). The Me109 G5 and H0 are variants on the stock G10 package provided on CombatAce (to install simply copy the relevant aircraft folders, rename as per my included folders, and drop in the relevant files). P-47 Sprint upgrades are variants on the ETO P-47D Bubbletop model and PTO P-47D Razorback model. Also included with this package are three sounds for a Pratt-Whitney, Centaurus, and Me109 either Benz or Hisso powered (sound works good for both). Links to the relevant aircraft that correspond with these data ini tweaks are located in the included "Read Me" file with the package. Please go through the Read Me for more thorough info. regarding these FM tweaks.
      Version 1.2 of this package includes the P-47N and improves the data inis for the other Jug and Superbolt variants.
      Happy flying,
      Von S
