    Version 1.0.0


    SF2 F-86E Sabre, 144th FIS, Alaska ANG Skin Pack 6/5/2019 -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Reccomended) This is a complete revamp of a 1stGen Sabre skin by Dave "USAFMTL" Slavins from June, 2003. It is designed to be used on the SF2 KAW Sabres Pack, for the F-86E-10 available therein. The Sabres are to be found at the following URL: https://combatace.com/files/file/13604-sf2-korean-war-era-f-86-sabre-pak/ Also included is a new data ini, with updated hit and collision boxes, and some meshes now correctly named. Honestly, I'd never noticed they were 'way off' until Mue's LOD Viewer! Please note, that Crusader's fix-its have already been applied to THIS versions' data ini. A backup copy of the original (2013) data ini is supplied, so as to lessen End User (tm) workload, and provide a safety net 'just in case'. This skin repesents the 144th Fighter Interceptor Squadron of the Alaska Air National Guard from 1955 through 1957-ish, when their mission changed from Air Defense to Airlift. The skin is in jpg format, and 26 all NEW decals have been created for it. While the serial numbers are historically correct for the E model, they should beconsidered generic in nature as they don't actually repsent aircraft from this particular unit. Decal randomization is TRUE. On the skin selection menu, on the Loadout Page, you'll see: 144th FIS AK ANG (1954-58) The SF2 "date switch" is NOT active on this skin. You'll have to select this skin for your flightmates by hand. However it is easily added by a simple text edit. As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Happy Landings! Wrench Kevin Stein

    Version 0.6.3


    This is the newest version of the LODViewer. New features: -decal support -display of collision and pivot points -added transparency and wireframe display mode -user definable background color -view manipulation via keyboard -64 bit application -uses the OpenSceneGraph library and Qt 5.9.5 Install instructions: Extract the content of the zip package to a convenient location. The LODViewer depends on the Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 C++ libraries. If not already installed on the computer (e.g. by other applications) it has to be installed by running vcredist_x64.exe (you can find it in the redist subfolder of this package). Have fun! And report bugs Mue

    An Xbox is a Windows 10 PC. As long as they don't stick the PC gamers with the console control interface they way they did with the last two Star War Battlefront games, this could be a winner. I won't hold my breath waiting to find out, but I am not assuming that this is going to blow for PCs either. Wait and see. In the mean time, my biggest problem is deciding whether to play DCS World on a 49" 4K TV or the Rift S: awesome graphics or awesome VR with 1:1 scaling and head tracking. Both are great and it is really hard to pick one over the other.

    Update 3.101 Dear friends, Today we have finished another huge update and it is already available to you. It includes the new war machines you can control - jet fighter/bomber Me 262 A Schwalbe for Bodenplatte, Т-34-76 made by UVZ factory in early 1943 for Tank Crew - Clash at Prokhorovka and airplanes S.E.5a and Albatros D.Va for Flying Circus - Volume I. Upping the exterior textures to 4К quality level for Bf 109 F-4 and Fw 190 A-8 are another neat feature, as well as adding visible crews to player controllable Pz.III Ausf.M and M4A2. All VR users get the long-awaited fix of an aircraft propeller that looked distorted with VR reprojection turned on. There are many changes in aircraft and ground AI. The level of detail of player controllable tank systems and their damage model is nearly final. And as usual, there are many improvements in FM and aircraft systems modeling. IL-2 Sturmovik team wishes you nice summer weather and enjoyable flying in our sim! Main features 1. Jet fighter-bomber Me 262 A "Schwalbe" is now available for all owners of "Battle of Bodenplatte"; 2. Albatros D.Va is now available for all owners of "Flying Circus"; 3.

Lots of instruments and controls are now animated: odometers, service meters, engine revolutions counters, ignition switches, starter buttons, oil temperature indicators, amperemeters, voltmeters, fire detection lamps, radio tuning dials, parking brake handles, turret locks; 31. Transmission damage affects the changing of gears, they become harder or impossible to switch; 32. Oil system damage causes engine damage at a progressing rate; 33. Cooling system damage affects oil and cylinder heads cooling effectiveness; 34. Electrical system damage affects the functionality of lighting, powered turret traverse and engine starter; 35. Engines have a heat model that is affected by damage; 36. Cold engine yields less power until it heats up; 37. An engine with overheated oil or cylinder heads accumulates damage fast; 38. 'Warmed up engine' option is valid for tanks too; 39. Fuel or oil leak could lead to a fire that can kill the crew and cause the ammo detonation; 40. In case of fire, the crew uses fire extinguishers if there are any left. It takes up to 2 seconds using automatic fire extinguishers and up 5 seconds using regular ones; 41. Damaged suspension springs or torsions can become lame; 42. If the coolant is boiling, there is a visible vapor exhaust from radiators; 43. A damaged engine can fill the tank interior with smoke; 44. Firing the gun and MGs can obscure vision in the tank interior; 45. Crew clothes, faces, hands, etc. can become dirty from smoke; 46.

The motion of a damaged right track of Pz.III Ausf.M has been corrected; New features in aircraft physics, systems and animations 62. Infinitely firing aircraft of other players shouldn't randomly appear in multiplayer anymore; 63. Additional steps were taken that should eliminate a rare problem of another player plane being invisible before opening fire; 64. PTAB sub-munitions effect on ground targets has been corrected; 65. Damage calculations for AP, APHE and HEAT aircraft-launched rockets have been significantly improved; 66. Physical models of all aircraft engines have been revised, many rare bugs were found and fixed; 67.

A rare issue in P-47 turbocharger that could crash the sim was found and fixed; 69. The error that caused the Flying Circus aircraft propellers to have more power than RoF ones has been found and fixed. The notable difference was found at lower flight speeds, but additional research showed that this error made during porting of RoF planes to Flying Circus more or less affected all flight characteristics of the Flying Circus aircraft. In this update this error is fixed, so flight characteristics of all Flying Circus planes fully correspond to RoF before update 1.034. You can see the updated flight characteristics of Albatros D.Va and S.E.5a in their in-game descriptions, while updated descriptions for other Flying Circus aircraft will follow in the next update when we redo all the required measurements; 70. All aircraft: when starting or shutting down the engine with all three difficulty options "Cruise control", "Throttle auto limit" and "Engine auto control" turned off you need to move the engine controls during the startup or shutdown procedure yourself; 71. All aircraft: wind noise sound with jettisoned or broken canopy won't disappear at 720 kph and higher speeds; 72. All aircraft: new technochat message informs the player about the engine failure (when it shuts off by itself without player or throttle limiter input); 73. All aircraft: new technochat message informs the player that the engine start command is ignored if the startup requirements are not met; 74. Fw-190 D9 and Me 262 A: there is a tip in chat clarifying that the engine throttle is blocked from moving to cutoff position when the engine is on; 75. Sopwith Camel and Sopwith Dolphin skid steering animations were corrected; 76. Weight values listed for all large gunsights of Flying Circus planes and for the camera on SPAD XIII.C1 have been corrected; 77. Weight values listed for additional Lewis MGs on Sopwith Dolphin have been corrected, speed loss information added; 78. Moving horizontal stabilizers control levers or wheels can be heard; 79. When an engine is turned off, the motion speed of a throttle lever with engine helpers turned on has been increased (it is now the same as its motion speed with engine helpers turned off); 80. In multiplayer, you can hear the engine starter of another player. Because of the huge amount of changes, the track and mission format was changed. If you're an author of a custom mission or campaign, you need to resave your creation (it can be done quickly using 'Convert missions to binary in folder' in the Mission editor). Please discuss the update in this thread.

    Technology Gap Work in progress, skins could be subject to changes. I didn't have time nor will to replicate the same black camo of the last F-22, but I will. My thanks to Krycztij for his 3View tool (https://community.combatsim.com/topic/26077-taw-3view-—-a-renderer-for-taws-3-files/) and to mue for his LODViewer.

    Version 1.0.0


    There’s no record of a twin P-40 ever having been made and the only evidence is a few Pics found on the internet. There were a few variations on the design, so I took a bit from them and add lib'd a few of my own. Credits: Model: Veltro2k Textures, decals and FM (Charles). Cockpit by CAStary Not to be used in whole or part in anything that is payware

    Hello Gents, I've been hard at work getting the 7 (maybe 8) LODs in order, so as to make game play with the F-5a as frame-rate friendly as possible. I'm quite pleased with the results; what you see here is a squadron of twelve aircraft from the most detailed LOD to the least ... all flying in formation. What I'm pleased about is that you can tell they're f-5s from 1200m!!
