Kittyhawks and Coconuts - RNZAF in the PTO

Recommended Posts

Major overhaul of P-40 markings and theater bands etc. Serial numbers are different to aircraft numbers on the cowling as the cowling number was given in theater depending on the servicing unit the aircraft was assigned to.

P-40E Home Defense Squadrons (including Tonga and Fiji)

Single P-40L delivered to the RNZAF by mistake, however it was assembled in New Zealand and flown briefly before it was shipped back to the USA.

      I'm doing a Pacific World War 2 install, and i kind of wanted to do it in the old school hard way (without HUDs). The instrument gauges are a bit problematic since some world war 2 cockpits have lower details in them so they are hard to spot but the even harder bit is actually locating the enemy aircraft since there are no search radars to compensate for the lack of HUDs. 

      I always call the tactical air control center and ask then the location of nearby bandits every few dozen nautical miles but they just always give me the all-clear (even at the mission waypoint) so I try to manually locate enemies but still just spend minutes circling round and round without action. (having read a few books, i know this is actually quite realistic, world war 2 wise but meh )

      I'm just curious how do you guys do it? am i missing something? please share some bits to me as I am a Sukhoi Flanker dude who's having way too much fun flying P-40s and Zeroes.

      Timor, North Oceania (1950-2018) Terrain
      August 13th, 2018 (1st Release)
      by Menrva

      >For Strike Fighters 2: Vietnam, Recommended Full-5 Merged
      This is a complete remake of the Modern Darwin terrain made by Wrench.
      A better and more complete tileset has been added, improving the looks of Northern Australia with the introduction of desert and barren valleys. Various rivers and lakes have been hand-tiled and mimic Real World courses. Now the island of Timor has a lot of bases to take-off from. Numerous target areas, such as emergency airstrips and civilian airports, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
      This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
      The terrain spans from August 17, 1950 (when President Sukarno proclaimed a single unitary Republic of Indonesia) to December 31, 2018; it is designed for fictional clashes between ANZUS/SEATO forces (namely Australia and New Zealand) and a random pool of Red Side countries (namely Indonesia and China).
      Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some airfields will appear only after a certain year, according to historic changes. If you have SF2NA, naval fleets might spawn in the Timor Sea. Also, Off Map Airbases have been added and long range AI flights can be generated from them. All main targets have been placed accurately in their Real World locations.
      Ground Objects are not included. You can obtain the most needed from Wrench's original Modern Darwin terrain release.

      >Credits (in no particular order):
      -Wrench, for he had the idea of recreating such a scenario in the Strike Fighters world.
      -swambast, who provided me with invaluable help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs.
      -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.
      -mue, for the improved shaders he made, which I have included and reworked for the terrain, and for the tools he made for SF2 modding.
      -luk1978, for the waternormal bitmap he shared at the SF2 screenshots thread. Your mods are very interesting!
      -MigBuster, I have included some of his great hi-res textures for runways.
      -Stary, for the hi-res PTO tileset he made, which I have reworked and expanded.
      -Brain32, for the gorgeous VietnamSEA tileset repaint he made, from which I borrowed a few tiles.
      -Centurion-1, Spudknocker and tiopilotos, for the impressive tileset they made for the Angola terrain, from which I borrowed some tiles.
      -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!
      -krfrge, who has produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!
      -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.
      Because the original terrain was made and tweaked numerous times by Wrench, I included the ReadMe files from his original packages, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

      >Disclaimer:
      This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages.
      Any changes to the terrain package's files and/or any copy-and-paste attempts of their contents are NOT authorized if you plan to release them in other mods. But permission might be granted to those who request it to me at CombatACE.
      This terrain may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.

      View File Partial Phillipines44 campaign - help!
      Help!  This has been an attempt to make a fictional 1944 campaign around Wrench's very nice Phillipines terrain. https://combatace.com/files/file/14171-phillipines-islands-1944-ww2-pto-terrain-for-sf2/   
      After reading 'Race of Aces' (great book - get it) I wanted to fly and fight many types of aircraft on that terrain.  
      This is my first try at a campaign, and it uses a lot of gutting and reverse engineering from:
      Regula50's https://combatace.com/files/file/16491-tainan-kokutai-new-guinea-1942-campaignpart-1/ and -2
      Pcpilot's   https://combatace.com/files/file/13709-solomons-campaign/
      Hope you guys don't mind - it's how I learn.  Also much thanks to all the various aircraft downloads from this site I've used.   This is a great community.
      If you don't have the various aircraft, just edit the ini's
      I tossed various planes around on the bases.  Again, no attempt at historical accuracy.  
      Problem:  The US aircraft all seem there and working, but only two groups of Japanese are working.  A6M7/Lahug Field and J2M1/La Carlotta Field.  
      I can't get the rest of the Japanese aircraft to appear.  No idea what's wrong....
      -I've tried moving aircraft around on the various airbases
      -lengthened the runways in the terrain folder in case the planes needed longer ones
      -increased the max number of squadrons allowed on the airbases in the terrain folder
      -various other hail mary attempts I've forgotten about.
      There are a lot of values and parameters I still don't understand in the ini's.  If anyone wants to try to fix this and repost it I'd appreciate it.
