  1. For some reason, the Forum software won't let me move the existing posts to this thread. The link below, should if I'm lucky, lead you to the Tips and Tweeks Main Thread. I guess from there, just scroll down until you find the proper posts. CLICK on the Arrow in the upper right corner, and it'll jump the Do-17Z post. From there, you can scroll down to the others. The Aircraft you're looking for are: Do-17z Ju-88A1 RAF Mitchell II & III (B-25s) ETO Beaufighters FW-200
  2. View File SF2 C-97 & HC-97 Data Ini Upgrade Pack The package contains new data inis for the C-97 & HC-97 Stratofreighter. This new inis have all new adjusted hit boxes, the addition of missing or (previously) unnamed components, and the re-arrangement of systems to the new components. The aircraft package itself has also been updated for those that haven't downloaded these aircraft yet. Existing users will NOT have to re-download the entire package. THIS set is designed for that update/upgrade. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: Simply unzip, as always reccomended, to a temp folder or your desktop. Then, copy/Paste, move, however you wish to, the included /Objects folder directly OVER the existing Objects folder in whichever SF2 mods folder you have these aircraft installed to. Allow the Overwrite. A back-up copy of the original data ini for both aircraft is included, so no need to back up you originals. Enjoy! Submitter Wrench Submitted 05/25/2018 Category ini File Edits

  4. While, eventually, each aircraft package WILL be getting the newer inis (hit box adjustment, armor upgrades, loadout adjustments, etc), this thread will be storing them for now
  5. Oh, almost forgot ... The B-17s and B-24s (all versions) will be getting the avionics upgrade adding Crusader's bomb sight mod. Be advised, however, the game engine (tm) treats them like crap! I've never gotten more than 2 for a Player Flown (tm) mission. Hence, as I've always said, "Let the game engines AI handle all heavy bombers -- it's not designed for player usage"
  6. that's just a simple text edit to the aircraft's release announcment/description in the download section. Same as if a newer version has been uploaded with changes. Like I did yesterday with the C-54 package (link below) Otherwise, any ini updates have, as in the past, simply been added to the "Object Mods / Ini Edits" download section. Like I just did with the Beau updates. In the long run, however, each and every individual aircraft, no matter what era it's for or from, will have to be updated to the latest version.
  7. I had a thought ... would it be better to create, and placed, the "new" data ini tweeks in their own pinned thread above? It might be better, simplier and easier for people to find them. Also, at some point I DO plan on adding, after End User (tm) feedback (if any), to the existing aircraft downloads. That way, anyone downloading the aircraft for the 1st time won't have to scramble around and try to find these corrections Thoughts?
  8. View File SF2 WW2 ETO Beaufighter Tweeks & Adjustment Pack For those not following the "Tips & Tweeks" Thread in the SF2 WW2 Forum, this is a package of data inis for the Bristol Beaufighter by Cocas Aircraft Factory This package contains data inis with adjusted hitboxes and some armor upgrades, but a new flight model for ALL the ETO (northern European used) Bristol Beaufighters that Cocas and I did. These are: Mk.1 (early and late) NF MK.1 (early and late) Mk.1C (ITF) Mk.VI (early) Mk. VIC, Mk.VIC, Mk.VIF (early and lates) TFX (early and late -with and withOUT thimble nose) the roll rate is still a little higher than as described, but it's improved over the original release Instructions For Use: Unzip, as always reccomended, to a temp folder or you desktop. Then, copy/paste the /Objects folder from the zip DIRECTLY over you /Objects folder in you WW2 ETO centric mods folder. Each of the above listed aircraft has, of course, their own folder within. Also provided is a backed up copy of the original data ini, for safety's sake. At some point in time, the MTO and PTO theatre specific versions will be uploaded. Eventually, I'll be trying to update each individual aircraft's package. But there's a LOT of Beaus, and only so much time.. Enjoy!

  10. the DAT has removed EVERYTHING of theirs from here. all that remains are a few mods, that without their LODs are pretty much useless what is there, is all there is. no one is making anything for 1stGens since 2010-ish.
  11. Ok, this is a big one! This package contains data inis with not just adjusted hitboxes and armor upgrades, but a new flight model for ALL the ETO (northern European used) Bristol Beaufighters that Cocas and I did. These are: Mk.1 (early and late) NF MK.1 (early and late) Mk.1C (ITF) Mk.VI (early) Mk. VIC, Mk.VIC, Mk.VIF (early and lates) TFX (early and late -with and withOUT thimble nose) the roll rate is still a little higher than as described, but it's improved over the original release eto_caf_beaufighter_tweeks_pack.7z
  12. here's a the new data ini for the Fw-200 a little bit of cheating had to be performed, but it worked! Also, I removed the STRIKE mission statement, as these weren't used for that. Anti-ship, naval strike, and naval search, recon and transport sound file is included v2k_fw200_tweeks.7z
  13. as long as it's Baltika's original, do what you want. Did you even read his notes, in the accompanying readme? It supplies links for some the various warships. Intrestering to note, that some of those ships you requested aren't even listed in Baltika's original. His only lists the CVA-63 (Kittyhawk class, stock in WoV) Koni's (DAT - removed) OHP (DAT - removed) SCB-125 (stock Essex from WoV) Spruance (DAT - removed) Udaloy's (insky - both still in the downloads) SumnerFRAM (stock in WoV) So, you want to ammend your statement? Why don't you just come out and say WHICH (and who's) version you're using. Just to let you know, any and all unauthorized changes on MY terrains, even for personal usage are NOT allowed. Just ready the statements in any/all of my terrain uploads.
  14. That had better NOT be my build of the Kamchatka terrain -- my stuff is OFF LIMITS!! Be warned. ========================================= to answer the actual question, most of those ships are endemic to SF2NA. You won't find them in 1stGens. But some are available in 1stGen, excepting the 3 or 4 that are DAT boats (Konis, Osas).
  15. something I forgot to add on the German aircraft above!! open the data ini, and in the ]AircraftData[ section , add this line UseMetricUnit=TRUE this way, it'll show meters/km altitude and kmph if you play with the info window open in the left lower corner this will be corrected on upcoming uploads
