SF2 Upgraded F-16 Hangar, Loading and Loadout screens for F-16 Mod Packs By the Viper Team!


SF2 Upgraded F-16 Hangar, Loading and Loadout screens for F-16 Mod Packs By the Viper Team!
By Me (No relations to the Viper Team!)

 

This is my upgraded F-16 Hangar, Loading and Loadout screens for most excellent F-16 Mods from "The Viper Team"'s (and one from dtmdragon - ADF) F-16 Mod packs. What I did was downloaded the F-16 packs from here...

 

http://combatace.com/files/category/666-f-16/

 

Then I combined them up. Upgraded all the Hangar, Loading, Loadout screen files. Then deleted everything but the Hangar, Loading, Loadout screen files to keep the folder structure. In theory, you should be able to copy my pack into your SF2 Mod folder, BUT I CAN'T RECOMMEND THAT since I don't know what F-16 you installed or how.

 

* Why did I do this?

 

I must be OCD, but I like all my Hangar and Loading screens to have the same format. I tried to match most of the plane to actual pix of planes for the Hangar and Loading screen. In many of the cases, I has to use generic planes because I could not find a decent picture of the plane.

 

Ok, this install is abit more complicated than my other mod/update/upgrades, but it's worth it. Well it was worth it for me.

 

* What is included in this pack:

 

*HANGAR.JPG
*LOADING.JPG
*LOADOUT.TGA
*NOTHING ELSE, NO LODS, SKINS, INIs....etc.

 

* What is changed:

 

Upgrades F-16 Hangar, Loading and Loadout screens in "...\Objects\Aircraft" only!

 

Installation:

* BEFORE YOU OVERWRITE ANYTHING - BACKUP!!!!

 

1) Sniper approach...

 

Take a look in my "*\To_Mod_Folder\Objects\Aircraft" folder. If you see a plane you have and want to upgrade with my screens, copy the screen files, one at a time, to your plane in your SF2 "...\Objects\Aircraft" Mod folder.

 

2) Shotgun approach...

 

Backup your SF2 ""...\Objects\Aircraft" mod folder, and then copy the contents of my "To_Mod_Folder" folder to your SF2 mod folder. If you don't have the plane I have, you will just get some extra folders in your SF2 mod folder and waste some space. If something goes nuts, then you have your backup? Right?

 

That's pretty much it...If I can sell (free, not money or anything - LOL) "The Viper Team" on these screens, it would just come "The Viper Team'S" F-16 packs...LOL, not pushing anything...just wishing. Love your work!!

 

------------------------------------------
Credits to "the Viper Team" for their Excellent F-16 Mods. Also and again, I have no associations with the Viper Team. We jut share the name and the admiration for F-16s - that is all.

 

Enjoy!

My friend they are the Vipers teams F-16's. I only did units. You need to look at the readme very carefully as you are giving me credit for something I was a small part off.

      F-16XL for SF2 – F-16E Blk 62 Fighting Falcon 2.1

      In March 1981, the USAF announced the Enhanced Tactical Fighter (ETF) program to procure a replacement for the F-111. The program was later renamed the Dual-Role Fighter (DRF) competition. The concept envisioned an aircraft capable of launching deep air interdiction missions without requiring additional support by fighter escort or jamming. General Dynamics submitted the F-16XL, while McDonnell Douglas submitted the F-15E.
      As we all know the F-15E was chosen... BUT what if the F-16XL had been chosen instead?
      And so I give you the F-16E/F Block 62 Fighting Falcon.
      The designation F-16E/F Block 60/62 would have been used had the XL been selected (The F-16E/F Desert Falcon as we know it today wasn't even on the drawing board in the late 80's).

      Included in this mod are:
      - F-16E (XL) Blk 62 Fighting Falcon
      - F-16EM (XL) Blk 62 Fighting Falcon (CUPID mods)
      - F-16EV (XL) Blk 62 Fighting Falcon (AN/APG-83 AESA radar upgrade)
      - 8 different USAF squadrons.

      To Install simply un pack and drop into your mods folder.

      Notes:
      - The weapon stations are quite complicated due to the set up on the real aircraft itself and the limitations in SF2 with the maximum amount of hard-points etc. As such it is best to use the default load out from the loadout.ini. That being said if you do want to change it at the loadout screen you need to follow these rules: If the default loadout uses rail launched weapons (Aim-9/120, AGM-65/88) under the inner wings, only change it for another rail launched weapon and vice-versa. This is because the weapon rails are loaded as an EP class weapon that doesn't show up at the loadout screen.
      - The default 'Attack' loadout is designed for the mass anti-armour mission as that is the kind of CAS mission SF2 generates. However in the loadout.ini file under each 'attack' loadout entry is a CAS loadout option with LGB etc.
      - There are a ton of different loadout options in the loadout.ini file so check them out with the single mission editor.
      - Loadouts are based on the F-16C Blk 40/42 but with an F-15E Strike Eagle flavor e.g. AGM-130
      - Shadows are deactivated as 'tractor beams' are an issue as it is an older .lod
      2.1 Changes:
      - Added missing 20mm M61A1 Vulcan (PGU-28) to 'Guns' folder. PGU-28 loads generally don't have tracers.
      2.0 Changes:
      - F-16EV (XL) Blk 62 Fighting Falcon added.
      - Loadout.ini and weapon station fixes.
      - Cockpits changed to Block 42 type with WAR hud as LANTIRN would have been fully integrated on the jet.
      - Ferris test skin added for F-16E (XL) Blk 62 Fighting Falcon.
      - Canopy RCS reducing tinting added as per F-16C/CM Block 40/42.
      - Semi- conformal AIM-120 station position and angles corrected.
      - Internal ECM changed to AN/ALQ-165 Airborne Self-Protection Jammer (ASPJ) as was planned for production aircraft.

       
      Released under the CA fair use agreement.

      General Dynamics F-16A/B Block 15 OCU Venezuelan Air Force
      This model represents the F-16 A/B in service with the Venezuelan Air Force since 1983 to present date
      Venezuela was the first Latin-American country who got permission from the US to buy F-16s. They stayed the sole operator in Southern America untill Chile received their new F-16s in the course of 2005.
      Peace Delta
      In May 1982, the government of Venezuela signed an agreement to buy 18 block 15 F-16A's and six Block 15 F-16B's to replace the fleet of Mirage III interceptors and Mirage 5 ground-attack aircraft serving with the Fuerza Aérea Venezolana. This purchase was under the Peace Delta Foreign Military Sales program. The original intent was for an order of up to 72 aircraft, but budget restraints lowered that number to 24.
      However, the Venzuelan order was not approved immediately because the US government wanted to sell Venezuela the F-16/79 (a slightly degraded F-16 version developed for export orders) instead. In 1983, the US government abandoned its hopes of selling the F-16/79, and finally approved the sale of the F100-powered F-16s to Venezuela
      The FAV accepted its first aircraft in September 1983. FAV F-16s wear an attractive green/brown color scheme, with the insignia of the Aviacion de Combate (Combat Aviation) on the tail and roundels on the wings. A four-digit serial is painted on the fuselage just below the tail fin.
      Of the original 24 aircraft that Venezuela bought, three have crashed: the first two, due to engine failure, and the second one, an F-16B, crashed during a maneuver on an air show at Base Aerea El Libertador, where Grupo 16 is based. In this accident, the first and second commander of the squadron where killed. The Venezuelan Air Force was looking for US government approval to replace these two aircraft and was planning to overhaul and update the remaining 22 airframes. At the end of October 1997, the US government approved the sale of the two F-16s, as well as an upgrade packet including the F-100-PW-220E. However, the purchase of the two attrition airframes has been halted until further notice.
