For Strike Fighters 2, preferably all-merged and up to date

 

by Stary and KJakker, version 1.1
March and August 2015

 

Update 1.1:
-fixes for engine gauges supplied by KJakker, thank you
-removal of temporary mesh helpers in 3N variant

 

What's this:
This is pack of two dedicated and quite accurate cockpits for the Grumman Tigercat twin engine heavy fighter/point strike fighter aircraft; F7F-1 and F7F-3(N) radar equipped variants respectively.

 

Best for late WW2, 1946 and specifically Korea installs. Made for and tested with Geo's excellent Tigercat.

 

Please read the readme for more informations about known bugs and other balooney. Seriously read it.

Stary, I think I fixed to issue with the gauges, PM of a modified file heading your way. Also the F7F is missing or has some odd data(Manifold Pressure) in the lines below from the engine entries in its data ini file. The ones below I puled from an F4U variant with the same engine as the F7F.

 

MinManifoldPressure=26

MaxManifoldPressure=66
GasTempIdleRPM=70
GasTempMaxRPM=80
GasTempChangeRate=0.1
OverheatTemp=90
DamageTempDelta=20
OilPressIdleRPM=70.0
OilPressMaxRPM=80.0
OilPressChangeRate=0.4
LowOilPress=50.0
LowOilPressTempDelta=100

Excellent, Stary, thanks a lot. :clapping:  :clapping:  :clapping:

 

BTW I have just tried with converting the five main BMP files in the cockpit folder (F7F_Misc.BMP, F7F_Pit_framing1.bmp, Seat.BMP, Tigercat_cockpit1.bmp and Tigercat_Panels_F7F1.bmp) to JPG format, and they seem to work fine in flight with no loss of graphics quality that I can see. It saves about 15Mb of size on the hard drive.

interesting but I doubt as the model reads specified type of graphics file (say, BMP) are you sure it doesn't simply read the BMP if you keep them in the cockpit folder that is..? Or you removed the bitmaps and the sim still reads from jpeg? That's interesting to say the least

Pretty sure that the game engine cast automatically from BMP to JPG for the skins but also for cockpit materials

yes it does;

if one converts skins of any type from bmp to jpg, removes (or stores the bmps in a sub-folder) the game WILL read the jpgs.

 

but what I find funny, saving 15 megs when most people have 1T or above HDs is silly!!!
