Well, I guess that TW, to make its product more interesting, will add some new features like new plane/s or terrain/s. My guess...

I hope too. Let's be patient :)

If TW will add new terrains/planes etc... this will confirm that TW is arrogant and ignorant. And does not give a shit about what the players' community would like to improve. 

As I said many times before - This game does not need new planes or terrains. 

Do you want a new plane? which one? Making new plane is easy-peasy stuff.

Well, I totally agree with you, that it would be the best solution, if TW sets it's focus on fixing or improving SF2-engine stuff instead of bringing new models or terrains. But I have to disagree on the easy-peasy stuff. Probably for a few guys it is like this...including you. But for the whole majority it is just not so, if the goal is a plane that looks like one and not a cube-like thing. ;)

I agree with @yakarov79. I also get @Nyghtfall's point. TW created some decent aircraft 3d models, but the terrains? Dear heavens, they are atrocious! Not just visually, but also taking into account historical and geographical accuracy. The Vietnam terrain from SF2V is an absolute mess, which reminds me that I have yet to complete the WIP rework of it I have.

So, I'd rather have important fixes from TW, game engine wise. Terrains? Hell no, leave those to me and a few others who put passion and research into them.

well,  i used easy-peasy expression just to compare making models and fixing things that should be fixed. we know that making models in real is tedious work.

 

Just in case some will whine that we do not have this and that and also that model....

There is plenty of websites that offer ready models, purchase, and ask someone to export into Lod format.

Unfortunately a few of you are expecting SF3. That is not going to happen so you're going to be disappointed.

I'm expecting a version of SF2 that's officially W10 compatible and also looks a little bit better because it takes advantage of newer shaders  etc. My expectations could only be exceeded if TK throws in a few of those planes that are in his mobile games as AI only (because clearly he isn't going to do cockpit for them).

Agree. And finally game engine is ruining half of our effort, cause of stupid limitation like ground radar ..

In fact all we need is distance to ground target and it is max annoying that we can see this distance in game HUD, but no way to use it :stars:.

No Master :biggrin:. All we want is 1 or 2 or 3 ... datas that we can use. And game is using these datas, so we need only entries.

My thoughts

1) Listen folks have a lot on their plate even or especially being locked down.  I wish I coulda launched a mission pak a lot sooner than mid-July now but...  I also understand the SF2 developer has other games he's working on.

2) If I could add only one feature it would be for AI to be able to drop GPS-bombs easily.  No seriously.  Leave the terrains to others.  Planes and ships are nice but that can wait.

Well, I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on SF2 for Windows 7 and see if I can get it to run on Windows 10. I hope it works because I love WOV so much. I was contemplating getting the SF2 WOV but, I think it's time I get more modern. Please stop me if it's a bad idea. I am a veteran flight simmer starting back in 1982, and I love Microsoft Flight Simulator. I have 1424 actual hours flying in RL. MS Combat Flight Simulator is one of my favorites.

I run SF2 on Windows 10 and so far no issue, though it's the Complete version.

Translation with google:

I am running SF2 (full version) on Windows 10 but if everything works well I have a small PB, impossible to see the effects
on the ground of the so-called Classic bombs. (Mk 81 83 etc) a setting can be?
I am thinking of buying the Windows 10 version to remedy this.

I don't know what "PB" is, maybe someone else knows, sorry.

      I think this question has been asked before, but just for my own peace of mind I think I will give it one more go.
      Is there any way to get SF1 series games working on Windows 10. 
      Sadly, I upgraded to Windows 10 a few months ago and since then I have been unable to get Wings over Europe SF1 working. I have tried every thing I can think of and every  sensible suggestion, but I think the overall reason (as has been suggested) is that the older generation of Strike Fighters games are not compatible with Windows 10. The game runs but it is incredibly poor and eratic, and crashes to desktop are frequent.
      If any of you guys have got WOE  SF1 on your Windows 10 rig and you have got it running well then I would love to know how you have got it set up.  Any advice or info would be most welcome. 
      Thanks

      SF2 Jane's USAF Hi-Res 1024x768 Menu Screens and Music!
      By Viper
       
      The Janes' Combat Flight Simulation Series! Every flight Sim'mer worth their wings remembers those! My favorite was the USAF! This package pays tribute to that old beautiful bird. It took me awhile to create this, so feedbacks and ratings would be highly appreciated...Enjoy!
       
      This mod includes custom "Jane's USAF" themed menu screens, pilots and music. This mod uses customized INI files to drive the sights and sounds of the Strike Fighter 2 interface to look like Jane's USAF.
       
      Unzip the package and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are MANY alternate screens I have in there that you might like better (More on this later).
       
      If you choose to install this package, I recommend that you back up (copy) your FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders in the SF2 Mod folder you're installing this package into. Just in case you want to go back to your original setup.
       
      * To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder. I designed this package for SF2 Europe, but it should work for all SF2 series games.
       
      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...
       
      C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighter2 Europe\
       
      * To remove, simply delete the active FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders and replace with the back up copies you made prior to the install.
       
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      * Extras and additional info...
       
      In the MENU folder, you will find three (3) other folders...
       
      1) Alternates Folder - Contains "Alternate" Campaign, Options, Pilot, and Single Mission screens. If you like one of these better, just copy them to the main "MENU" folder and rename them to the correct names...
       
      CampaignScreen.jpg
      OptionsScreen.jpg
      PilotRecordScreen.jpg
      SingleMissionScreen.jpg
       
      ...for whichever files you are changing...
       
      2) Music-Jets Folder - Contains alternate sound package. If the default music is too much for you, just copy the contents of this file into the default "MENU" folder. Most of the music will be replaced with jet sounds.
       
      3) Music-On Folder - Contains the default INI files that will turn on all the music again.
       
      Enjoy!

      Note: I removed all the nation sounds from this Menu packs for size reasons. If you intend to install the "VIPER63A HQ Menu Sounds" pack, please install that pack first. Installing the HQ Sound pack over the Menu pack may overwrite some of the menu specific music files. You can always re-install this menu pack to get the menu specific theme music back.
      This mod includes custom "vietnam Era" themed menu screens, pilots and (w/ 60s) music. You should unzip this package and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are MANY alternate screens I have in there that you might like better.
      1) Backup (copy) your FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folder. I "highly" recommend that you (if you can) "RENAME" your Menu folder and let this mod create a new Menu folder for you. If you had installed any other menu mods, that may conflict with this Menu mod. 
      2) To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder. Don't forget to back up before loading any mods!
