SF2 E\F-111\A\D\E\F USAF Combat Lancers\Aardvarks\Ravens Redux 2016


SF2 E\F-111\A\D\E\F USAF Combat Lancers\Aardvarks\Ravens Redux 2016
by Viper63a, dtmdragon, Lel and 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...

http://combatace.com/files/file/10425-f-111-super-vark-pack-version-24/

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

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

This mod includes the updated individual E/F-111A/D/E/F mod packs + other excellent contributions! I had some requests to put them all into one pack for it would be easier to download. So here they are. All the F-111s in this packs are also available for individual downloads in the following links...if you just want a certain model. The F-111D updates from dtmdragon, Lel and Fanatic Modder are only available in this mod pack.

* F-111D Aardvarks from Cannon AFB: The 481st, 522nd, 523rd and 524th TFS from the 27th TFW. Contribution by dtmdragon with support from Lel Fanatic Modder (FM). 
* F-111E Aardvarks from USAF/E RAF Upper Heyford 20th TFW. The 55th, 77th and 79th TFS!

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

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

I recommend that you back up your mod folder (or just the Effects, \Objects\Aircraft\F-111* 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 Europe\

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

* 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...

In version 6, I upgraded the Desert Storm Aardvarks. I did some more tweaking on the other F-111s - cleaned up the skins and details. I also modified the pilot helmet and mask for the F-111Fs to look more modern. F-111s are one of the few SF2 ACs where you can see the co-pilots up close, so it had to look good. I am very happy with it. I hope you like it too. I've been using this pilot model for the other planes too...so I may release it as a mod of it's own. All credit to Florian - "AmokFloo" - I am using his/her LOD...I've seen other pilots and they look good, but none as good as Florian - "AmokFloo"s LOD. If you know of any other...Let me know...

 

Enjoy!

F111-F 1996 - I can load LGB's on the wing pylons but there's no designator pod. I thought this plane had 1 built-in but it doesn't seem to work for me, and I can't load 1 in the loadout screen.

From FM....

 

"

I don't know, I checked and it all seems normal!

 

Possibly what he did was not copying over his old folder. But even in the old vark park 2.4 the specific station code is F111. I don't know.

 

Ask him to change the data.ini lines of the F-111PaveTack_DATA to this

 

[WeaponData001]

SeekerGimbleLimit=180.000000
SeekerNodeName=Head
SearchFOV=5.000000
SearchTexture=AVQ26_lock.tga

 

this SHOULD work...I hope.

 

by the way, i corrected the mass from 0 to 629...if you add the extra drag too you understand why the pavetack was never installed into the less powerfull -E model."

I don't have the Weapondata.ini extracted, but using the weapon editor to view the pod, I can see the data already matches what you've listed above, yet still it doesn't work. I found a workaround though, adding a new sensor to the F111-E ini file at least got me a guidance system for the LGB's, even though it lacks the model of a designator pod. I'm beginning to remember I had similar issues with this back in WOE days, and I managed to fix it then, it's just a case of remembering what i had to do to make it work.

I had the same problem. To fix it I had to add a weight limit to the station that uses the Pave Track in the F-111F_data.ini file. Just make sure it is slightly higher then the weight of the Pave Track pod

I've just downloaded the latest version and added it to my mod folder, many thanks to everyone involved!  

 

Viper, are you planning to do the F-111D variant too?  I have it in my mod folder, and I have no idea which cockpit to use, the one with or without WSO's radar hood (I'd really like to know which are the differences between the F-111 variants)

I set load limit to 630... no effect. Then I tried the aircraft in a new ODS install, where the Pave Tack pod appears in the loadout screen, in place of the forward ECM pod station, and works as advertised. So I copied the ODS F111-F folder to my Europe install.

Blaze, the new version 9 has F-111D models updated by dmtdragon, Lel and FM...

 

I've seen it and already downloaded it, great job guys!  I'm still slowly working (due to RL) at the new terrain for ODS and Iran/Iraq war, let's hope that sooner than later I manage to complete it, so we can see these beauties fly over it.

Hey Blaze, in anticipation of ODS, I made all my updates for the F-111 packs. Barring any bugs, this pack should be set for now.

 

Thanks!

Yep, version 10 sounds good (this doesn't apply to Microsoft and their latest OS  :biggrin:), it's never easy to get rid of all bugs at once, this applies to my terrain as well.  Thanks to you and the other modders who are working on other stuff, planes, etc., I'm pretty sure we can revive the Iran/Iraq war mod project, as well as updating ODS as it was meant to be.

Really appreciate viper63a all your hard work to get to this point.  As somebody who's read all the Dale Brown novels, it's sure a treat to simulate the F-111 series in air combat.  Really fun to go down low and plug in the burners.  Also fun dropping multiple precision weapons and once in a while dogfighting.

That said,

1) I was so disappointed not to have a CCIP I put your F-111D HUD files in the Objects\Aircraft\F-111E folder.  Really like having a CCIP to drop smart bombs since I don't know how to radar bomb.  Perhaps spent too much time playing games where I just designated a target and dropped or fired a munition.  Or flew the teen-series aircraft where dumb bombs came with a CCIP.  So can you please put a CCIP in the E & F models?

2) At night, the F-111 afterburner was quite visible.  

But I must say otherwise, I rather enjoy the package.  One wonders if the F-111 was more, er, economical to keep around how valuable it would have been to have able to drop smart munition after smart munition after 9/11... not that the teen-fighters are a slouch, but still!

Hi Jose, 

Thank you for your comments. Are you saying you fixed CCIP in E and F using the files from D? If so, can you elaborate. Most of the work I did was cosmetic and flight model...

The AB...yea, I was never happy with it. I got it to what I like and left it there. I may revisit it.

Quite welcome.

Yup, I just copied the two ini files in F-111 Aardvark USAF Super Pack 1920 v14\Extras\F-111_IDF_What_If_Skins\Correct F-111D HUD\F-111D in your pack over to the E.  Haven't done it with the F, worried I might mess up the visual cockpit model of the F.  Having a CCIP to me is really important!

Thanks for noticing the AB issues.

      Is it me or the SF2 download section not showing anything? I have to go to "Download" and look in the right pane for downloads?
      =v=
    • By MigBuster


      With so many different aircraft in Strike Fighters it is often the case of selecting an aircraft and fudging it around the skies with only vague recollection of how the radar works and how it is supposed to handle because you didn’t have the time to refresh. The Last of the Lightnings is a mod that unusually for SF2 centers mainly on getting familiar with a certain type of aircraft and its systems. You might even term it DCS lite however I can’t imagine seeing any of the aircraft in this mod featuring in that sim in my lifetime.
       
      So, what is it about?
      The Last of the Lightnings (by comrpnt) is a set of scripted single missions (like YAP) that take the player through an RAF Operational Conversion Unit (OCU) training program and is based on the writings of ex Lightning and F-4 pilot Ian Black. This takes place in 1976 and you are flying the English Electric Lightning F.mk6.

      The what you say? or as FastCargo once stated before being put under court martial by the USAF for blasphemy [or not].
      The Lightning was the last fully designed British supersonic fighter to enter service and its only requirement seems to have been performance above everything else [especially fuel].  Strike Fighters 2 comes with all seven of the single seat variants:
      Lightning F.mk1 Lightning F.mk1A Lightning F.mk2 Lightning F.mk2A Lightning F.mk3 Lightning F.mk6 Lightning F.mk53 Okay if you are wondering where your Lightnings are then you didn’t buy SF2 Expansion Pack 2 did you, in which case you are one of the reasons TK is now doing crappy phone games only………[hey his words] not to make you feel too guilty!
      Shame really because it comes with some of the best 3D pits Thirdwire ever did, and probably unique as far as combat sims go with the Lightning:

       
       
      The centrepiece of the mod is a pdf guide that must have taken some time to do and is quite detailed in places.


       
      So the point of this is that you will be learning to fly the Lightning or at least be better at it. On Hard flight model (~SFM in DCS) it can be tricky to handle so you will be dragged through formation landings, flying, A-A refueling and even learn how to use the radar to properly intercept targets and actually read the radar symbology. Some of this should be useful for other aircraft at least.

      Install
      So yes you need SF2E and SF2 Exp 2 to run this minimum. I was running this from a full merged install, of which I created a separate install by copying the game exe file and running that to create a new Mod folder called LastOfTheLightnings for it.
      Full instructions are on the PDF and is mostly drag and drop with some ini file editing. For the training rounds I created new folders in the weapons folder and not the old-fashioned way recommended.
       
      Mods
      So once up and running I added mods and changed them as I went through the course. Because of the changes that come with the mod I only changed the terrain tiles, runway, and sky using Better Widesky (Cellisky/Orsin). I have also put in mods to give more head movement and darker nights.

       
       
       
      Up and running
      Firstly, you go to single mission only and choose the missions using the date code e.g. [760522] then ignore the text the game puts in because it is wrong [only go by the date code to get the correct mission per the guide].
       

       
       
      Check your loadout - obviously the training rounds should be there otherwise don’t touch or change anything just look at the map and then launch.

       
       
      So you start either on the runway or the taxi way on these missions.

       

      At the beginning the tricky parts are landing on formation with your Qualified Flying instructor (QFI) and playing chase the QFI. Especially at night you need to be on your feet to keep track of the guy initially!

       
       
      You are then given instruction on how A-A refueling should be done, e.g. fly in formation on the port side before refueling then fly formation on the starboard wing. You then have to try it at night and in clouds.

      Yes the amazing Ravenclaw Bucc is in this pack.

       
       
      The Intercept phase is interesting and you will be going after low and high targets before flying in formation with them, so you will need to learn what those dots and lines mean

       
       
      After basic intercepts you get to do ACM against the pesky aggressor F-4Ms, although don’t pay too much attention to the instruction for this because they will spam those AIM-7s at you, luckily they are only training rounds [if you installed them properly] and wont kill you.

       
       
      Next live weapons are used to intercept remote controlled unmanned drones (Hunters). The early ones fly straight but the later ones give you problems by turning a lot.

       
       
      After basic strafing there is a pretty cool finale for your graduation, firstly you fly an F-4M as a photo chase plane:

       
       
      Then you get to fly position 9 in a graduation formation fly over of RAF Jever.

       

      Final salute to comrpnt for a fine job six years later.

      Okay so the Rolling Thunder campaign was never my favourite campaign from the series, in fact might be the most bland. The main reason for this was most probably the fact that there is no forward line of troops and tank columns to fight it out, and gain or lose ground after each mission.
       
      Rolling Thunder for real
      The campaign namesake this is based on was one of the most disastrous and misguided campaigns in the history of aerial warfare. What was hoped would be a few weeks of bombing missions to get North Vietnam back to the negotiating table to stop them trying to invade the South, turned into 3 or so years of bombing targets selected by Washington. Or to put it another way pussy footing around bombing things that did nothing more than improve North Vietnam's resolve to continue on its agenda and also allow it to build up its defenses with the help of the Soviet Union and China.
      So, 3 years of bombing targets – many times the same targets over and over, and never achieving the desired US strategy.
       

       
      Rolling Thunder in game
      In the Strike Fighters game engine this translates to what seems like a string of single missions and yes you don’t have much of an objective other than to try and not get shot down.
      However, unlike auto generated Single missions, Campaign missions are more content filled and almost always include strike packages and flights that help you do your job (If you at least meet your timings). Not only that all the units have their markings and decals as they should.
      Like history there are no SAMs until mid 1965 and the MiG regiments are limited in number. One great thing about TKs games is the use of "dates", so the game engine can just plonk in the correct objects (Guns/SAMs/MiGs) depending on the date you are flying. This also includes getting rebased and upgraded to better aircraft during the campaign.

       
      Vietnam Gold
      Like most things in Strike Fighters World, mods can really help and I am using the Vietnam Gold mod with a variety of my own changes. This comes with quite a fearsome atmosphere with a ton of guns shooting at you with purple stuff, red stuff and grey puffy stuff. A major benefit is a bigger variety of targets and not just the sodding comms building again.
       
      Gameplay
      Feb 24 1966 and I am flying from Da Nang in an F-100D (1964 version) for the 416th “Silver Knights”. I don’t know what it is about the F-100D that I like because it is outclassed by pretty much all the MiGs.  
      The Lang Chi Electric Power plant is my target (a welcome addition from gold pack I think) – and I need to be on target for 09:10 on the dot.

       
       
      I am maxing out the M-117s here – there are plenty of them available. The SF2 Super Sabre also allows TERS to carry 4 on the inner pylons by default but with extra drag.

       
      How to get there hmmm. Those that played Wings Over Vietnam will know various routes into the North to minimise exposure to the SAMs, some of which had a 90% plus probability of kill if you were not flying at about 5ft off the ground. Luckily the SAMs in SF2 and this pack allow you to fly a bit more as they tended too back then!
      With a target near Yen Bai I can use the highlands as cover and cross in over South NVN where there are little to no SAMs.

      The Square box waypoint (the Initial Point /IP) is also the spawn point if you use Alt N, so can be moved around if you don’t have time to fly there.
      Waypoint 3 is fixed as a rendezvous with other flights. If SF2 had been developed, it would have been nice to change the waypoint details for the flights like in Falcon so you could move the fixed waypoint for all flights.
      Another thing that could have been improved was seeing your actual target area before flying. If you consider Jack Broughton spent all night memorising features etc before going on a mission you can understand the point of just marking the actual target with Padlock or a red dot!
      As you can see only 2 MiG regiments active with MiG-17F and MiG-21F-13.
       
      First Lt Eldon Atterbury is my wingy today. If you do take time to nurture the pilots their stats do improve (if they survive)


       
      Let's go then

       
      As we fly towards the target other flights are also on route to their targets.

       
      After a while several fights occur


       
      Due to meticulous planning we reach the target just fine and we roll in from above the cloud base

       
       
      I hit the target but get peppered by a lot of triple A

       
      Phew heading out but think my Wingy is a bit lost.

       
       
      Try to search, but no sign of him and no beeper! so off home alone

       
       
      Mystery solved, a MiG-21F-13 gunned him down and I had no idea that was in the area!  If only all Vietnam mysteries could be solved so easy!

       
      I then went on to fly A-4C/Es for the US Navy in which you get to take off from Carriers in the Gulf on Tonkin


       
      Mr SAM is always happy to see you

       
      This thud was just lucky!

       
      This thud was not so lucky

       
      What are all those blotches

       
      So still quite intense flying through all the anti air and check 6 for those MiGs as always!

      BOTH SF2E AND DLC28 ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS MOD!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      NOTE1: If you already downloaded version 3.1, you just need to download and install the patch to upgrade from version 3.1 to 3.5 Please read the Read Me in the Patch file.
      NOTE2: This mod WILL replace stock F-104s and may conflict with any other F-104 mod you may have installed - SO BACK UP unless you crave drama! SF2 Europe (merged or not) and DLC28 is REQUIRED, REALLY. If you don't have these, this mod will not work for you.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      After flying FastCargo's excellent "Classified Mission Mod (Version 1.1)" pack, I got re-introduced to the F-104 Starfighters. So take a look at FastCargo's mod in the link below. Some install work is required, but well worth it....
      http://combatace.com/files/file/11458-classified-mission-mod-version-11/
      Firstly - I take NO CREDIT for the work contained in this pack. I made some of them better (All new skins, decals...etc), but I was not the creator. I am just a reflection of the excellent work that can be found here in CA. So here is my humble contribution to the collective. Thank you all for your mod packs!
      What's in this pack? In a nutshell, I downloaded some F-104 mods to check out the 104s (turned into downloading almost ALL of them, two of the best being Wrench's DLC28 F-104 Pack and MigBusters "Thirdwire F-104A/C Pack 1 1.0 " pack. Then added a bunch of other packs that caught my eye. There were lots of conflicts, broken decal links, leaking LODs...etc etc...So I started merging - fixing - reskinning - re-decaling and generally upgrading all the packs into one merged and hopefully easier to install pack. This is my "Best of the breed" F-104 Super Pack and I thought you may like a copy. Again, SF2E and DLC28 are REQUIRED, but other than that, everything else is in this pack to start flying the F-104 Starfighters.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      By Viper63a et al!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      BOTH SF2E AND DLC28 ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS MOD!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      NOTE1: If you already downloaded version 3.1, you just need to download and install the patch to upgrade from version 3.1 to 3.5 Please read the Read Me in the Patch file.
      NOTE2: This mod WILL replace stock F-104s and may conflict with any other F-104 mod you may have installed - SO BACK UP unless you crave drama! SF2 Europe (merged or not) and DLC28 is REQUIRED, REALLY. If you don't have these, this mod will not work for you.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      After flying FastCargo's excellent "Classified Mission Mod (Version 1.1)" pack, I got re-introduced to the F-104 Starfighters. So take a look at FastCargo's mod in the link below. Some install work is required, but well worth it....
      http://combatace.com/files/file/11458-classified-mission-mod-version-11/
      Firstly - I take NO CREDIT for the work contained in this pack. I made some of them better (All new skins, decals...etc), but I was not the creator. I am just a reflection of the excellent work that can be found here in CA. So here is my humble contribution to the collective. Thank you all for your mod packs!
      What's in this pack? In a nutshell, I downloaded some F-104 mods to check out the 104s (turned into downloading almost ALL of them, two of the best being Wrench's DLC28 F-104 Pack and MigBusters "Thirdwire F-104A/C Pack 1 1.0 " pack. Then added a bunch of other packs that caught my eye. There were lots of conflicts, broken decal links, leaking LODs...etc etc...So I started merging - fixing - reskinning - re-decaling and generally upgrading all the packs into one merged and hopefully easier to install pack. This is my "Best of the breed" F-104 Super Pack and I thought you may like a copy. Again, SF2E and DLC28 are REQUIRED, but other than that, everything else is in this pack to start flying the F-104 Starfighters.
