Hi, my name is Mariano and I recently installed SF2 in my PC. All went well, installed some planes, did the thing right. Now, when i wanna play with an installed plane, it only shows the manufacturing year. For example, the A-4AR by Bandidos Team starts at 1998 and ends in 2020, but in my case, I only see 1998 and I'm only allowed to play on that year. I will attach some screenshots for you to see whats happening...

Anyone has a solution for this problem? Do i have to reinstall the planes? An update? Thank you in advance, have a great fly!

Hello and welcome !

See post below, what Wrench said.


The problem comes from the terrain used.
GermanyCE is the stock terrain by default and the problem won't happen as long as you stay between 1948 and 1984 (or maybe earlier/later).

To solve it you should extract the "GermanyCE.ini" file and add the entry :


With the years you want to have.

But before doing such I would recommand to download a terrain and see how it's done.
When you understood how things work then go modify it, but in the meanwhile take your time and don't try anything not under control xD

Here you will find some content to read :


It won't adress all your issues but it's the place where to start.


"Plane Year Problem" is better than "PLANE YEAR PROBLEM"

      Hello! My name is Elchfisk and I am new to the COMBATACE forums in general, but I wanted to showcase something I designed and am in the process of working on.

      The Vought F-119 Vanguard, influenced by designs within the TFX (Tactical Fighter eXperimental) Program, which led to the development of the F-111, was considered to be a tri-service answer to the project. A high power, variable sweep fighter aircraft that would essentially replace the mud moving roles of the Aardvark, and the standoff interception capability of the Tomcat.

      I'm new to Strike Fighters 2 modding as a whole, and I would love for this to be the first project I undertake in that scene. Is there any documentation or anyone that could teach and assist me in how to mod in an entirely custom aircraft like this? I'll keep this thread full of work-in-progress photos in the meantime, but if any experienced modders could reach out to me, I'd really appreciate it.

      Before I go for now, here's another image of one of the several models, specifically the J79 equipped variant, showcasing the very unique wing setup, and variable sweep:

      Hey, it's me again! Thanks to Bazillius I was able to solve the HUD problem. Now, I have another problem: the canards of the J-10 are rotating in the wrong direction. This means, when they have to rotate in the pitch-up direction, they rotate as pitch-down. I had this problem in a couple planes, but since this is the first one I'm going to publish, I want it to be perfect. If anyone knows how to solve this problem, it would be very appreciated. Good flight!

      Hi everyone, how you doing? I will go to the point. I am currently working on an Argentinian skin for Erwin Hans' and InSky's J-10A. I want to modify some aspects, like the HUD. Currently, the mod doesn't have a way to show if the missile is locked on target or not (THE CIRCLES THAT APPEAR ON THE HUD), and I want to modify that.
      I tried changing the cockpit.ini and avionics.ini, but I had to replace with the not modified version of the files because I ended up deforming the radar, and the avionics of course.
      The plane doesn't have problem when it comes to bombs and cannons, but it has that problem with the missiles. If someone can help me, I will be more than thankful.
      Have a nice flight, good hunting!

      Hi everyone,
      I need help to change the date in "single mission" in the amazing ODS (Operation Desert Storm) mod for SF2
      It lets me choose between years 1990-1991-1992
      As soon as i end a mission and, for example, i get a medal or an award, it ofc says the date the sortie has been done...
      The problem is: since i can only choose the year, and not the month in mission menu, the date is randomically chose (for example i very often get months like august or december, even if the war had been fought only between the second half of January and February 1991, not any other month)
      How can i choose the month and day i want to fly for a single mission? So that i can choose the actual days the war happened instead of random 1991 months?
      I hope i explained well and that a solution can be found.
      I already tried changing Start Year and End Year date with January 1991 and February 1991, but nothing happened
      I truly love this mod, and imho it's absolutely perfect, but this is the only thing that "ruins" a bit (like getting a medal which says i flew over Iran on April 1991) and i'd like to fix it but idk how 
      Thank you so much for helping me, seriously

      I have seen some photos, and I have the doubt if someone did it since it is known that the updates of the mods are not published in the announcements ... any news or comments about it I appreciate it in advance
