    This package represents the CF-100 MK-4B version as used by the RCAF in Europe. It's meant for a "typical" SF-2 installation that includes the GermanyCE terrain. The date range is historic, from November 1956, to December 1962. Skins for the four RCAF squadrons that deployed to Europe are included, with a skin change to the later RCAF/Red Ensign style occuring during 1958. For campaign modders, the CF-100 date range just fits in for the 1956 Red Tide and 1962 Red Thunder campaigns. The skin jpeg's are quite large but I haven't had any frame rate issues on a mediocre Dell I-3 rig. The model does use distance lods. [yay!] ROCKET ISSUES: After much messing around the air to air rockets are best described as "adequate for now." The rocket pods are "No Jettison" because, with jettison-able pods the AI would just drop them prior to engaging any air targets. To get the pods to automatically jettison like the real CF-100, a "RemoveNodeAfterUse" statement is used but the pods disappear when the first rocket is fired. Much work has gone into setting up the rockets with different CEP [spread] settings as well as different engagement ranges being tested. Also much work trying to get the AI to fire a full salvo but so far unsuccessfully. They sometimes fire quite large salvos but we still haven't figured out the "Logic" that's being used by the AI when using air to air rockets. Some rocket settings are quite counter-intuitive. During early testing the AI was consistently firing the rockets below the target. Raising the RocketBoresightAngle didn't help the situation, they still fired too low. Strangely, lowering the RocketBoresightAngle made the AI raise the nose more when firing the rockets resulting in a big improvement in hit percentages. The AI does quite well when attacking IL-28's, less well against fighter sized attack aircraft, and very poorly against TU-16's, which are almost untouchable by the AI. The only AI kills I've seen against the TU-16 is when I maneuvered the formation into a head on attack before giving the engage air command. The results were a couple of collisions and one very lucky kill when an AI aircraft managed to fire one [that's "1"] golden rocket. When player flown it's possible to do a successful one pass attack on the TU-16. Against maneuvering fighters the AI will get only very occasional rocket hits so for CAP missions the rockets aren't included in the load out. Any improvements for the rocket behavior will be passed along through a CF-100 support thread. More information is included in the README.

    Here's my way to do decals (I'm sure there are easier ways out there): 1. Create new picture 2. Make a new layer for your decal (Blue Circle in this case) 3. Hold CTRL and left-click on the Pencil-Square-thing on the decal-layer of the layers-tab to select the decal-shape 4. Go to channels tab and left-click on the rectangle with the hole inside at the tabs bottom to save the selection as alpha-channel 5. Select the Alpha-channel (all other channels are not visible then --> eye-symbol only on alpha-channel). The Decal is all white (hex #ffffff), that means the decal has 0% transparency. If it is all black (hex #000000) like the background, than it is 100% transparent. All you have to do is to adjust the "color" of your decal. Select a foreground-color (to get a similar blackish tone like TK, I use color hex#d6d6d6, that has a slight transparency) and use "Edit->Fill..." from the menus, select in the "Fill"-window "foreground color", normal and 100% and hit ok. The Decals color on alpha-channel should change now (but not on the color-channels). Save as .tga and make sure "Alpha-Channels" is selected. The key to transparent decals is the color of your decal on the alpha-channel...black = 100% transparent, white = 0% transparent/opaque. grey-tones are in between, the darker - the more transparent 6. Thats it! You have to do more steps to get a transparent decal in PS than in gimp and afaik tgas from PS always (must) have a background. But the steps above can be used in "Actions". These are makros, where you can record the above steps and just hit "play" to do a new decal - nice and easy. Set it up properly once and make things easier for you in the future.

    He wants the fakepilot-mod above, but without the 2 pylons - so just the pitot-tube and the afterburner.

    I'm at work right now, but can send you step-by-step pics when I'm back home, no problem. To make it a bit easier, you can also set up "Actions" in PS - it's some sort of makro. So with one click, you have done your decal.

    This package represents the CF-100 MK-5 version as used by the Belgian Air Force in Europe. It's meant for a "typical" SF-2 installation that includes the GermanyCE terrain. The date range is historic, from December 1957, to October 1963. Skins for the three BAF squadrons that used the type are included. For campaign modders, the CF-100 MK-5 [BAF] date range fits in for the 1962 Red Thunder campaign. The skin jpeg's are quite large but I haven't had any frame rate issues on a mediocre Dell I-3 rig. The model does use distance lods. To improve the high altitude performance the CF-100 MK-5 had the gun pack removed and wing tip extensions added. On the real MK-5 the gunsight was removed as well. Considering those real life limitations, and the poor hit percentage of the rockets against maneuvering fighters, the aircraft role has been limited to INTERCEPT only. Some adjustments have been made to the FFAR and pod so if you have the previous MK-4B [NATO] installed you should remove the previous versions and install the new ones. The sounds and ejection seat are unchanged so you can skip that part of the install. After the model was built we found out the MK-5 couldn't carry wing tip tanks with the wing tip extensions installed. Sundowner is too busy to do any model work so the tip tanks have been removed using an ini edit. Bomb and guided missile racks are still available for what if scenarios. Check the ReadMe for a bit more information.
