SF2 F-15 Strike Eagle Super Pack Redux 2018


This is a full stand-alone pack, no other mod packs are required. This pack is a REPLACEMENT and NOT an upgrade for FastCargo's F-15 Super Pack. You cannot simply install and over-write Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack with this pack. Nor, can you over-write this pack with Fastcargo's F-15 Super Pack. This pack contains higher resolution jpeg skin files, so if you over-write Fastcargo's pack with this one, you will never see the new skins. If you over-write this pack with Fastcargo's pack, you will lose all the latest data files for flight model, weapons loadout and etc. If you just want the upgraded skins, those skins are available separately in the Skins section of this site. A later versions of those skins are already in this pack, so please don't upgrade this pack with earlier version of Viper63a's skins. Please refer to the "Installation" section in the Readme file, it will explain how you can install this of both packs
 
- The Mudhen Team!

This pack contains all F-15E Strike Eagle variants and above. If you want the F-15A thru D Eagle variants (including Js), you can find them here.

This pack contains the F-15E and up from FastCargo's F-15 Super Pack and more. Nearly every part of the original pack has been upgraded. All new jpeg skins, decals, screens, flight model, loadout, pilots, (some) weapons, and cockpit...etc...etc...etc. Because all these differences, there are special instructions to install this mod over the original F-15 Super Pack. But it will be well worth it. 

 

Different emitters for all 3 types of engines used PW-F100-220/229 and GE-F110-129, different pilots for each country represented, different repurposed sound files! Tens of loadouts to choose from (read the *LOADOUT.INI file, there are instructions there to set\change your default loadout for a mission profile), multi-tude of decals - you can choose different planes in the same squadron and the decals can be different. There are nearly 20 authentically serialize jets for each squadron. So, you can fly up to 8 different planes within one squadron and they can all be unique! Including Squadron, Wing and AF commander planes! Illuminated cockpit...I can go on and on and on!

 

Spudknocker, Fanatic Modder and I (with some help from new friends - Raven and JAT - THANKS!) loaded up this mod with everything we could think of and was in our skill sets to implement....Enjoy!

Uploaded v1.01 - Has nozzle corrections from Fanatic Modder for exported F-15I, K, S, and SG. Also include some really nice upgraded weapons from Raven.

 

If you already downloaded the original v1.0, you just need the patch. The original v1.0 pack was removed and replaced with the full v1.01 Super Pack for new downloads if you want the upgraded full pack.

 

Waiting for admin approval...

 

Thanks...

Hey Viper63a been flying the Strike Eagle pack.  Love what you did but as per two of the photos below... 

  • You got too many 2,000 pound weapons available on the conformal mounts.  Max is four, not six
  • Laser JDAMs don't drop, especially from the "Silent Eagle" variants.
  • Center SDB rack shows but won't drop SDBs.

Oh and... More fun than anybody ought to have without reading several hundred pages of manual!!!  Really nice to blow up Hezbollah rocket launchers in one pass!

You can revert to the weapon data entries and corresponding loadouts provided in this download package

Stick, being I'm not an elite member any advice as to, " revert to the weapon data entries and corresponding loadouts provided in this download package "?  I downloaded the .7z file. 

I would love to be able to play with loadouts too... some airplanes need more types of weapons, some less.  All freeware work is much appreciated by me!

So pull up the data.ini's from either pack and look for the CFT station entries. Compare both and I'm sure you will find incongruities, e.g. center CFT stations configured to carry 2000Ib bombs.

Look for the following statements (metric) to tinker with:

LoadLimit=1250
LengthLimit=3.620
DiameterLimit=0.470

If you get disoriented, refer to the loadout.ini. Not only will you find explanations but you will also note that the loadout entries (in the loadout.ini) correspond to  specific StationID's in the data.ini's. By way of illustration:

StationID=25 in the dta.ini will correspond to Loadout[25].WeaponType=*** in the loadout.ini

Happy Modding!

Thanks.  Here's what I did so the F-15E made some sense:

Quote

 

[LCFT_Station2]
SystemType=WEAPON_STATION
StationID=23
StationGroupID=5
StationType=EXTERNAL
AttachmentPosition=-1.8480,-2.3661,-0.87

DiameterLimit=0.470
AllowedWeaponClass=BOMB,EOGB,LGB

[RCFT_Station2]
SystemType=WEAPON_STATION
StationID=24
StationGroupID=5
StationType=EXTERNAL
AttachmentPosition=1.8480,-2.3661,-0.87
AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,0.0

The original was 1250, so I just dialed that one vector back to something more realistic.  Got some good loadouts on me and my wingman in ODS...

 

I'd change the length limit too, but rather let the original developer do it as they know just how long the GBU-12 is!

Oh and here's a couple screenies from a test flight with the Silent Ra'am & V4 J-DAMs.

Used the same code until the developers have a better fix.  Have to say reducing 8,000+ pounds of weight is much appreciated.

Also devs, the F-15E_14 needs way better GBU-39B Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) compatibility... they're not supposed to hang like pictured below on the F-15E.

 

Instead, see HERE and HERE from Raytheon for better examples.  Really be awesome to have that capability on your jet... a certain game-changer.

you do realize, that the guys that built these are no longer with us, right? So don't expect any updates from them.

Other than ini/skin mods, like Viper's Pak, that it for physical model development

Unfortunately, my BRU-61 SDB racks are messed up (I'm not sure why), but it is definitely possible to mod the F-15SE to have SDB racks on the LCFT_Station1, RCFT_Station1, LCFT_Station3 and RCFT_Station3.  It takes a fair amount of trial and error as I found out.

A mix of SDB racks and CFT stations:

img01443.thumb.JPG.9e28d70cf67b66c9f39e4f0a931e5646.JPG

Because of the rack issue, I've developed a work around using the MER4 rack as a EOGR rack:

a) If you stick to the racks as per the above picture and can prune the stray SDBs above them, that'll be as close to 100% real world accurate as we can get.   I really hope we can keep this Strike Eagle as real world & relevant as possible!

 

b) Sorry for late response, had shoulder surgery done last Tuesday so going to be a week to two at least before I fly SF2 again.  But please pass your code in this thread.  Maybe I can put something together as a friendly advisory patch this fall... ;-).
