Astore - UPEO SKIN PACK FOR STRIKE FIGHTERS 2


Hi to all, I'm Astore. Thanks for downloading my skin pack ! 
The UPEO (Universal Peace Enforcement Organization) is a fictional faction featured in the Ace Combat game series, and the main faction of Ace Combat 3 Electrosphere. 
The Universal Peace Enforcement Organization is an international peacekeeping organization under the Neo United Nations. UPEO maintains the SARF (Special Armed Response Force) when military intervention is required for peacekeeping duties, as well as the Euro-Asia Public Network for neutral, continent-wide broadcasting.

Despite its aim of enforcing peace, UPEO was a puppet of General Resource Limited until the late 2030s. The organization became more independent with the rise of Neucom Incorporated and with Gabriel William Clarkson taking office as UPEO's representative.

UPEO is the player's initial organization at the start of Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere. In the Japanese version of the game, the player can defect from UPEO to either General Resource or Neucom.

It has shown that their equipment is of two main aircraft carriers, a Nimitz class and an Air Vector UI-4053 Sphyrna, still in construction during the early events of the game. Their main base, is a military airport at the center of Expo City, the eastern city of the USEA continent excluding Megafloat, which is a floating-island city.
The UPEO Air Fleet is composed by future versions of actual aircraft and some fictionals since the game is set in 2040 of the Strangereal Universe, but the only fictional continent invented at the game exit was the USEA, so, since the faction seems to be universal, there could be several other planes operative in other nations, which have been introduced only in Ace Combat 5 The Unsung War (That is set in 2015).

Main air fleet
EF-2000 Typhoon II -Base plane, multirole fighter-
Mig-33 Fulcrum SS -Interceptors-
F/A-18 Hornet ADV -Multirole, got from the General Resource LDT faction
F-16XF Gyrfalcon -Air superiority, got from the General Resource LDT faction
R-101U Delphinus I -Base plane of the R Fleet from Neucom.Inc faction
R-201U Asterozoa -Heavy attacker fighter, Attacker from the R Fleet of the Neucom.Inc Faction
SU-37 SUPERFLANKER II -Multirole, mainly Air Supremacy.-
SU-43 Berkut -Multirole, mainly Air Supremacy.-
UI-4053 Sphyrna - Heavy Air vector with the fuction of a flying aircraft carrier with jamming capabilities and interior hangar to store at least 20 planes. 
R-505U -Presidential plane of Rapresentative Gabriel William Clarkson

Skin Pack: 
F-15 D ACTIVE -UPEO and GR Skins-
F-16A_Blk1 (Stock F-16) -UPEO skin-
FA-18a (Stock F-18) -UPEO skin- 
FA-27C (Yukikaze Planes Addon) -UPEO and NEU Skins-
Mig-29C_RUS -UPEO Skin-
Su-27SKM -UPEO and Upeo Ace Rena Hirose Skins-
SU-47 -UPEO Skin-
Typhoon -UPEO Skin and Typhoon ace skin-
CVN-56 / Admiral 56 (Yukikaze Aircraft Carrier Addon) -UPEO Skin-

Installation: Open the aircraft folder from the downloaded content, and copy/move the UPEO (and variant) folders to the plane's folder in your SF2 (StrikeFighters2>Objects>Aircraft>Your plane folder. Same for the Aircraft Carrier skin: StrikeFighters2>Objects>GroundObjects>Admiral56) There's no need to overwrite on other folders, just add them in the specific folders. My skins does not requires decals, since the emblems are painted in the skin.
If the skin doesn't work or shows leaving your aircraft black, it's possible that you are using a different version of the plane from an another addon, or that your game doesn't read the skin format. When this happen, copy the skin files to save them, then try to change their format (Like JPG). If the skin sets are the same for other models with the same skin mapping, they should work too. 

You can make a UPEO Nation in your INI Files continuing the list of nations. Be sure that the Nation number continues the series. In my case since I already got 271 Nations in my file, I've wrote Nation272 to make it work. But you could have to change the number.

MIG-29C: https://combatace.com/files/file/13792-mig29c-ukrainerar/

Most of these planes should work also on SF Gold. I've started working on the skin pack from Gold and then moved to SF2. Actually, also the F-18 has been downloaded from the FX Interactive site, but the addon from CombatAce should work too. To install manually the aircraft from that site, download them, the site will give a laucher-sort file. Ignore it, do mouse-right click and extract the files. You should obtain the aircraft folder to put in your SFG/SF2 aircraft folder, and it should work. Some of the templates for aircrafts were missing, then I had to make some new by hand, like for the F-15D Active. The older skins could be not at the same quality since I was working on SFG, but they'll be remade in future. 


Bugs and errors: The files shouldn't damage your game, if something doesn't work just remove the folder of the skin. 
The only bug I actually know is in the F-15 D ACTIVE canards, which couldn't be painted. It was the only Active I found, if you use it in SF2 be sure to insert also a cockpit file. 

You can customize the skins if you want to, credit me when you post screens or other in way to allow other players to find the download. Don't forget to rate, good or bad.
This was my first skin pack, I hope I didn't messed up and that everything works. Maybe I'll do other skins in future. Have fun !

Well, to start with, a actual description of just what's included might be a good idea....

Skins of the planes I had put in the description, nothing more. Since some people could not know the faction, I've described it a bit. :ty:
There's also some screenshots to see the style, it's basically the same paint scheme for all the different planes.

      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.

      View File F-15EX Eagle II Mod for DCS World (Beta)
      This is a simple mod that uses the stock F-15EX external model and F-15C cockpit/avionics + custom .LUA files to create a stand-in flyable F-15EX Eagle II.  This mod is currently WIP (fuselage AIM-120 mounting points could use adjustment and ideally the cockpit would have some sort of simple re-skin).  Also uses a Silent Eagle skin for the time being.  No A/G capability at the moment (other than of course strafing).
      Installation: Just extract the .7z file and drop it into Saved Games/DCS/mods/aircraft (or Saved Games/DCS.openbeta/mods/aircraft depending on which version you have).
