  1. Alternative Overcast Layer for the SF2 Series

    Alternative Overcast Layer for the SF2 Series
     
    I have been playing around with various textures for a while now & I am quite pleased with the results.
    So I thought I would share them.:-)
     
    Hope you enjoy
     
    SF
     
     
    This package contains top & bottom replacement textures for the overcast cloud layer & a modified ENVIRONMENTSYSTEM.INI.
     
     
     
    Instillation:
    -------------
     
     
    Place all the bitmap & ini files in to your :
     
    Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 \Flight folder.
     
     
    Warning!!!
     
    ----------
     
     
    If you are already using a modified ENVIRONMENTSYSTEM.INI
    Don’t install this version!!!

  2. F-15A Dark Camouflage

    F-15A Dark Camouflage v2.0
     
    This is a darker colour "compass ghost" scheme for the Third Wire F-15A.
     
    Its my attempt to give the stock eagle a later more modern feel about her.
    Its is based on the stock TW skin at 1024 X 1024 resolution.
    Apologies but I haven't yet acquired the skill or accuracy to attempt anything at a higher resolution yet.
    Regardless I’m quite enjoying the new look.
    Hoping some of you might enjoy it too. :-)

    Installation
     
    NB: This requires SF2 Europe though if renamed correctly should work in SF2 Israel for the F-15A Baz.
    Unzip & place the objects folder directly in to your saved game / mods folder.
     
     
    Credits
     
    - Third Wire for the original F-15A artwork & WOI F-15A templates.
    - Everyone at Combat Ace for their countless contributions & pool of knowledge.
     
    P.S. I have included a list of supported stock F-15A squadrons.
    If like me & you are not a hardcore aviation buff, you can use it to enjoy their different markings & associated tail art for the F-15A.

  3. EAF TW F-16A Skins

    Egyptian Air Force TW F-16A Skins
     
    Requires Strike Fighters 2 Israel!!
     
    This is my attempt at the EAF F-16A.
    It contains the later well known high-viz grey scheme that gives some of the Egyptian aircraft their unique flavor & the overall standard Egyptian grey scheme.
     
    I could only find a handful of reference photos of the early A & B models so feel free to make any suggestions or any changes.
     
    It is possible to just drop the skins directly in to your F-16A_Netz folder but I recommend you use them with the Updated F-16A Block 10 1.1 pack or similar TW F-16A packages in the downloads section.
     
     
    Installation:
     
    Drop the skins folder in your F-16A or what ever you have called your TW F-16.
    Place the decals folder in the in your Objects/Decals folder.
     
    Add the following to your F-16A USERLIST:
     
    [Egypt]
    ServiceStartYear=1982
    ServiceEndYear=2020
    Availability=COMMON
     
     
    Hope you enjoy

    This is my attemtpt at the RNoAF F-16A.
    It contains two overall grey skin sets & decals for the 331st 332nd Squadrons.
    It’s not perfect so feel free to make any suggestions or make any changes.

    Instalation:

  5. IcelandNA Shimmer Fix

    IcelandNA Shimmer Fix
    ---------------------
     
    For me the terrain noise effects on the North Atlantic terrain is a little too strong, causing the ground to shimmer.
    I’ve toned down the original that gets rid of the shimmer & reduces the overall coarse look of the terrain.
     
    If you are having the same problem give it a try.

  6. Ground Effects Collection

    Ground Effects Collection
    ---------------------------------
     
    Just a few sample noise textures from the hordes I have collected & been experimenting with.
     
    They replace the stock noisenormal.bmp that create an impressive feeling of substance, texture & speed at low level.
    Enhancing already detailed terrains & giving new life to older low rez tiles. :-)
     
    Installation:
    ---------------
     
    Select a NOISENORMAL.bmp from on of the numbered folders & place it in the specific terrain folder that you intend to use it for.
     
    E.G.: \Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2\Terrains\Desert
     
    Notes:
    --------
     
    Terrain texture needs to be set to High or Unlimited to see the effects!!!!
     
    Best results are when that sun is at a lower angle, at noon the ground effect is not as visible!!!!
     
    Some noise textures work better than others on some terrains! You'll have to experiment with what works best with your particular tile set.
     
    As a guide this is what I use but you may find others more suitable.
     
    Desert: NOISENORMAL - 2
    Grass or foliage: NOISENORMAL - 7
    General: NOISENORMAL -3
     
     
    Problems/bugs:
    ------------------
     
    All texturs have been tested in SF2 fully mereged. (BuildDate=Aug 2011)
    I have noticed no adverse effects on my system & game settings!
     
    However....
     
    Some users could experience slight haze or shimmering depending on there system, game & graphics card settings.
     
    My FPS seems unaffected but some users could experience a slight FPS drop.
     
     
    Credits:
    ---------
     
    These textures have been made’ free to use’ & have been collected from a variety of locations on the net.
    All credit goes to their original creators & only minor changes have been done by me.

  7. F-16 Netz “Desert Viper”

    F-16 Netz “Desert Viper”
    ------------------------
     
    Requires: SF2 Israel!!
    ----------------------
     
     
    A fictional 2 tone Desert skin for the Third Wire F-16.
     
    I’ve based it on the original Israeli camouflage scheme & have unofficially assigned to
    Israel’s 116 (Flying Wing Squadron)
     
    However it could make a great mercenary skin or as a fun addition to those “Special Ops” for an air force & squadron of your own.
     
    This is my first attempt at skinning the Netz & decided to keep it simple.
    When time allows I’ll try something a little more authentic & perhaps a little different next time.
    Notably, it may not be as good as those masterpieces that you are used to but
    I hope you have fun with it anyway.
     
    Enjoy :- )

    - For his fantastic F-16A templates that took 90% of the hard work out of creating this skin.
    Thank you.

  8. SF 2 Israel Retro Style CCIP Gunsight Mod

    Strike Fighters 2 Israel Retro Style CCIP Gunsight Mod.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
     
    I’m absolutely useless at bombing & rocket attacks in older aircraft with out modern avionics.
    I just can’t seem to get the hang of it! :-(
    So I have attempted to up grade the gun sights of the older a SF2 I aircraft so that they incorporate some of the modern features such as CCIP, ASE & so on.
    But with out losing breaking the continuity & retro look of the HUD.
     
     
    What dose it do?
    ----------------
     
    (1). Adds CCIP & ASE For all stock player flyable aircraft that don't have a modern avionics.
     
    A-4E Ahit,
    (73)
    A-4F Ahit
    A-4H Ahit
    A-4H Ahit
    (70)
    (72)
    (73)
    F-4E_Kurnass
    (73)
    (75)
    (78)
    Nesher
    Shahak + (71)
     
     
     
    Installation:
    -------------
     
    Place the contents of the “StrikeFighters2 Israel” folder found in this download in to your SF2 Israel Saved Game folder & overwrite when asked.
     
    Note:
    This will replace any modified stock COCKPIT_DATA.Ini & AVIONICS_DATA.Ini you might be using!!!
     
    This mod is compatible with my "Cockpit & Runway Lights for SF2I mod" but needs to be installed second!
     
    Known issues:
    -------------
     
    Nesher:
     
    Unfortunately I have been unable to keep the beautiful arched heading scale of the Nesher in in NAV & SRM modes. So I have deleted it & replaced it with the best compromise.
     
    F-4E Kurnass:
     
    For the same reasons I have be unable to reproduce the roll tabs for the F-4E gun sight in NAV & AA modes: SRM, MRM.
     
    I’m guessing is probably something to do with the way the avionics.dll is told to read the gun sight information from the cockpit.ini. If anyone knows a workaround or a knows a solution, please let me know & I’ll update this file.

    All credit go’s to those who took the time to share the information on editing the various entries in the DATA.Ini files on the in CombatAce & Third Wire forms.

  9. Cockpit & Runway Lighting for SF2 Israel

    Strike Fighters 2 Israel Cockpit & Runway Light Mod.
    ----------------------------------------------------
     
    I found the cockpit & runway lighting switched on too late for my liking & that once the cockpit lighting was finally turned on I still couldn’t read the gauges!
     
     
    What dose this mod do?
    ----------------
     
    (1). Adds brighter Cockpit Lights to all stock player flyable aircraft for SF2 I.
     
    (2). Turns on Cockpit lights earlier in the evening for all stock player flyable aircraft for SF2 I.
     
    (3). Turns on all Runway Lights earlier in the evening in the Stock SF2 I IsraelME Terrain.
     
    Installation:
    -------------
     
     
    Place the contents of the “StrikeFighters2 Israel” folder found in this download in to your SF2 Israel Saved Game folder & overwrite when asked.
     
    Note:
     
    This will replace any modified stock Aircraft_COCKPIT.Ini you might be using!!!
    This will also replace any modified stock IsraelME DESERT_AIRFIELD.Ini you might be using!!!
     
     
    The Runway & cockpit lighting is controlled by the sunlight level in the game.
    They will now turn on just before sunset on a clear day & even earlier on an overcast or Inclement day as the light level will be lower due to cloud cover.
     
    Known issues:
    -------------
    none

    All credit go’s to those who took the time to share the information on editing the various entries in the Cockpit.Ini files on the in CombatAce & Third Wire forms. Thankyou! :-)

  10. Open Canopys & Landing Lights for SF2 Israel

    Strike Fighters 2 Israel Open Canopy & Landing Light Mod.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
     
    Well here is my first mod for the SF2 series.
    I hope you find it useful.
     
    What dose it do?
    ----------------
     
    (1). Adds canopy animation to all stock player flyable aircraft for SF2 I.
     
    (2). Adds landing lights to all stock player flyable aircraft for SF2 I.
     
    Installation:
    -------------

    Note:
    This will replace any modified stock Aircraft_DATA.Ini you might be using!!!
     
     
    Open & close the canopy: Animation 1 (Shift+1)
     
    Landing lights: work in conjunction with your navigation lights (Ctrl+L)
     
    Known issues:
    -------------
     
    It seems that on the F-16 Nets, the landing light will not always be placed directly in the centre of the lens of the 3d model.
    It may appear lower or higher depending on the loading placed on the main landing gear as the as it compresses or releases.
     
     
    Credits:
    --------
     
    All credit go’s to those who made Open Canopy & Landing light mods for the first series.
    Syrinx's, WombRaider, dfang, eightlein & those who took the time to share the information on editing the various entries in the DATA.Ini files on the in CombatAce & Third Wire forms. Thankyou! :-)

  11. Enhanced Stock Weapons Skins

    Enhanced Stock WOE Weapons Skins.
    --------------------------------------------
     
    THESE SKINS ARE FOR THE STOCK WEAPONS ONLY. DON’T INSTALL IF YOU ARE RUNNING ANY OF THE WEAPONS PACKS
     
    I have attempted to enhance some of the stock weapons skins. They are not accurate and only meant to achieve a better look.
    To Install copy the weapons folder to your …………\Wings Over Europe\Objects folder. If you don’t like them just remove the weapons folder.
     
    They should also work with WOV or SFP1 patched up to (v08.30.06)

  12. Harrier Winter Camo v1.1

    Here is my attempt at giving the stock Wings Over Europe Harrier GR3 a Winter Colour Scheme.
     
    My aim was to try and recreate the RAF Winter Exercise Camouflage used by No 1 SQN in the early 80’s. It is not authentic or accurate but achieves the desired effect any way. There are two colour schemes RAFWinter Camo 1 & RAFWinter Camo 2 one just the reverse of the other .
     
    Enjoy
     
    Update v1.1 24-10-08
    ---------------
    Colour corrections to the air intakes & slightly smoother textures.

  14. A-10A Hog's Teeth Nose Art v1.1

    I made some small changes to some skins for the stock Wings Over Europe A-10A .
     
    It includes a brighter USAF Euro I skin with ‘Hogs Teeth nose art’ & USAF MASK-10A Gray with ‘Hog's Teeth nose art‘.
     
    This creates separate skins in your A-10A folder so none of your original skins will be affected.

  15. WOE Landing Lights v1.1

    This adds landing lights to the flyable aircraft for Wings Over Europe patched up to v08.30.06.
     
     
    It includes landing lights for the following aircraft.
     
    A-10A, AV-8A, F-4C, F-4D, F-4E, F-4F, F-4M, F-15A, F-100D ,F -105D , HarrierGR1 ,HarrierGR3 & Hunter FGA Mk.9.
     
    I have done the best I can with the light positioning especially with some of the aircraft that don’t have their landing lights modelled such as the A-10A but they look close enough and have the desired effect any way.
     
    Update v1.1 20.11.06
     
    Landing Light for the Hunter FGA Mk.9 now included.
