SF2 VF-114 F-4B (65) Phantom Skin/Decal Pack by Mytai


SF2 VF-114 F-4B (65) Phantom Skin/Decal Pack by Mytai         9/4/2019

= For SF2 (Any & All, Full-5 Merged Prefered) and/or SF2:V =

*Can be used in any install that has access to the F-4B_65 which is stock in all merged installs, excepting SF2:I (well, actually it's probably there as well!). 

This a new build of Mytai01's 1stGen skin for VF-114 Aardvarks durning 1965/66 Southeast Asia cruise about USS Kittyhawk as part of CVW-11 (tail code NH). This is within the time frame of the camo experiments the USN was conduction, as many of the aircraft aboard were using this 2-tone green camo. Records seem to indicate VF-114 did not. The aircraft remains in the standard Gull Gray/White scheme. With this skin set, you should have all the strike/fighter/attack aircraft of CVW-11 for this cruise.

The skin is in jpg format, 2048x, from Sundowner's templates. Mytai's original decal have been 'refershed' to remove any oddites or edge 'ghosting'. Decal randomization is TRUE.  Also included, within the skin folder, are all of Mytai's original research material that came with the 1stGen Package. This includes photos and other text files.

Also included are slightly modified data and loadout ini that correct a few little faults. Wingfold and canopy are now manually activated, using the Standard Animations Keystrokes (tm); shift/9 for wings, shift/0 (zero) for canopy. Lighting has been tweeked so the wing lights follow the wing when folding/unfolding. A landing light and the 3 approach lights have also been added (see "Notes" for more details).

When in-game, on the Loadout Screen, on the skin selection dropdown you'll see:

VF-114 Aardvarks 65 (Mytai)

As the Aardvarks are a unit listed in the stock squadron list ini, decals are set to make the displayed name active.

As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them ....

Is anyone having issues with the decals?? I've had a report the main fuselage decal is NOT showing up for one of the users. It would be the nsdl and nsdr decals (as they hold the national insigina, serivce name, ship name and squadron number).

other downloaders PLEASE check this skin in game. I cannot duplicate the issue; it always works for me

tia!
