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.

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.

      The ODS Dev team is proud to announce the second official release of Operation Desert Storm: 30th Anniversary Edition, now reaching version 0.9.5.
      Six months had passed since the first release of January 17th 2021, six months in which the development team did not rest, producing a wealth of tweaks, bug fixes and exclusive, brand new additions to this comprehensive package. Unwanted bugs found their way in the January release, due to time constraints and the team wanting to meet the deadline in time for the 30th anniversary of this historic operation. Now we offer a much more refined and expanded experience, with quality of life improvements and welcome bonuses. Be sure to read the massive (albeit summarized) change log (Operation Desert Storm: 30th Anniversary Edition - Early Access) to learn more about all of the efforts that went into this new release.
       
       
       
       


       
      The package is free for download to all official Modders and Subscribers of the site. Those whose 2021 6-month subscription plans expired have been granted access to the package at no extra cost. Users who acquired the mod via a 1-month subscription plan will have to renew it for access to this brand new release. CombatACE.com admins thank you for your support towards the monthly costs of the site.

      View File Screen Overhaul - (1920 x 1080)
      Strike Fighter Project 2 – Screen Overhaul v1.2 Customizable Edition
       
      The new version of SF2 Screen Overhaul 1.2 is now released.  Here is the following screen this mod completely overhaul:
       
      -          Main screen
      -          Single mission screen
      -          Mission editor screen
      -          Hangar (Default) screen
      -          Loadout screen
      -          Planning screen
      -          Roster screen
      -          Campaign screen
      -          Campaign editor screen
      -          Pilot records screen
      -          Options screen
       
      It does not yet cover another screen.  It is work in progress (WIP) for now.  What I am seeking for is feedback that will help me improving the mod further. It is one of my biggest projects I ever worked on for SF2. It gave me opportunity to grow a new skill I enjoy doing. 

      NOTE:  Now that SF2 Screen Overhaul is becoming a customizable version. If you make any mods that adds or change anything to this mod, please add my name and mod name to your credit part.
       
      You can contact me by PM in CombatAce (I am known as Eagle114th there) or Strike fighter series Discord chat (My username is Magic Dragon, so you can find me there too.)

      Version 1.2 NOTES:
       
      Buttons customization instruction:
      In Menu folder (SF2 mod folder), you will see various SF2 screen named as “BUTTONS_HANGAR, MAIN, OPTIONS, etc...), there are folders for each button.  In order, to change the color of buttons, go to one of button folder, you will see different folders for various color.  Copy the file from there and overwrite the files in any BUTTONS_(SCREEN) folder.

      For example, in BUTTONS_HANGAR, if I want to change the color of “LOADOUT” square button to blue; I go to the folder “LOADOUT”, then “Blue” folder, copy the files: LOADOUT0.bmp, LOADOUT1.bmp, and LOADOUT2.bmp.  Then I paste (Overwrite) the files in BUTTONS_HANGAR.
       
      Screens and Buttons customization Templates
      In different “BUTTONS_(different screen names)”, there are folder “_Templates’.  You can use it to change the designs, colors, or anything you want to do with the screen background or buttons. 
       
       


      This mod uses a font known as Orbitron.  I included it in _Fonts folder.

      I want to express my sincerely big THANKS to Menrva, Wrench, UllyB, Daddyairplanes, Wilches, JosefK, FalonCAF, and everyone else in CombatAce community for making this possible.  You all have been a huge help. 

      Because of Operation Desert Storm 30 years anniversary great mod, I was able to study the codes on how SF2 menu work, which led me into developing new menu for SF2.  This mod is truly fun to fly in SF2.  If anyone hasn’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it.


      There are detailed instruction that explains how to install in the proper ways in README file.  LEASE READ IT BEFORE INSTALLING! 

      I included the plans for the next version in the readme too.  

      The feedback are always welcomed!

      I did some experiment on converting the regular screenshot into 1970s and older photo style.  I thought "Why not?"  so here it is:

      Parked A-4s - Rregular screenshot

      Parked A-4s - 1970s style screenshot

      Parked A-4s - Older style screenshot


      Parked MiG-21s - Regular screenshot

      Parked MiG-21s - 1970s style screenshot

      Good evening everyone,
      I have a few questions about MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI and .STR files;
       
      1) since I am looking for the way to do further changes to HUDDATA and GUI.  I did some researches and I found out that if I edit MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI, I will be able to do more customization to the in-flight screen.  I am unable to find MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI.  So where do I find it? I extracted flightdata and there is no MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI. Where can I find MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI?

      2) About .STR, I noted there are .STR on both flight and menu folders after extracting both using CAT extractor.  What kind of program is required, in order, to edit .STR files?  Or is there no way to mod them properly yet?

      As always, the information and advice are appreciated.

      Cheers!
