  1. F4U-1D Corsair

    Userlist is faulted -- missing the #1 customer for the Corsair, the USMC, and RNZAF. Also, in Data ini, exported is TRUE (USMC is another nation.) If you're going to re-do other people's work, try and get it right, ok?? You have my original work as a guide
  2. I forgot to post this here the other day, so please forgive me my friends!! I started a new screenshot thread in the SF2 screen shot forum for folks to recreate scenes from various aviation themed movies. I cordially invite all my brothers (and any sisters!) from The Great War to join us in recreating such scenes. I don't want to actually take any traffic away from the FE forums, so if you wish, I can create a sub-thread just for those (oth, seeing FE/FE2 might bring new flyers to the fold?) Anyway, please feel free to join us! I thank you all!!!
  3. View File SF2:V RB-57E Canberra "Patricia Lynn" (Remod) SF2 RB-57E Canberra "Patricia Lynn" (Remod) 5/18/2018 = For SF2:V ( or Any & All SF2s, Full-5 Merged Prefered) = *note: this mod was started for a CA member in July, 2018. I just recently found it in my archives. Figured I might as well release it!* This is a complete rebuild of Anjundair's B-57E, and an update to Migbuster's RB-57E "Patricia Lynn" package for SF2:V. The aircraft has 3 full skin and decal sets; all serial number decals are 100% historically correct. These skins depict the 460th TRW, Det 1 at various times in their deployments to Southeast Asia: Natual Metal (1963) Night 1 (1966) Night 2 (1970) The skins use the SF2 'date switch', and marking change as needed as per the year in use. Skins remain in their bitmap format. The FM has been rebuild using the stock 3W B-57 as a base. The avionics have been upgraded, and you'll now have a full time LLTV set up. As there is no accurate B-57 cockpit, the F-4B is used as a stand in, due to it having scope to display the radar, TFR and LLTV (yes, we know there actually wasn't one in the front cockpit). This (gaming) aircraft remains fully combat capable, unlike the Real Life (tm) versions. See Notes for more information. When in game, you'll see RB-57E Canberra (AJ) on the aircraft selection dropdown window.The "AJ" credits Ajundair, even though there are no other RB-57s available. As always, fairly easy to follow, detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them! If you have any earlier versions of this aircraft mod, it is =HIGHLY= suggested you delete the aircraft and decals folders, as THIS mod replaces everything. End users (tm) might also find the Notes section enlightning and informative. Good Hunting! Wrench Kevin Stein ***Note: Found in the Archives!!! This was done and should have been uploaded in early 2018!! But I guess never got around to doing so for whatever reasons. As I don't use my SF2:V mods folder much, there may be other birds that have been hiding in the hangars. I'll be more careful in checking from now on!! *** Submitter Wrench Submitted 07/25/2019 Category B-57

  5. You're fucking kidding me, right??? You're obviously not flying on the right terrains....I'd highly suggest spending some time in our handy Terrain download section. add GreenHell3 for your Nam experience. Also, remember, we're working with a 20+ year old terrain engine. You'll never get DCS fidelity in this game. Terraforming is abso-fucking-lutely not for amateurs. We've got guys here that try, and fall massively short. And the 2 or 3 of us that actually know the "hows, whys and wherefores" are more than a bit overworked.

    SF2 Yak-14 Mare (What If) Pack 7/21/2019 -For SF2, Any and All (Full 4/5 Merged Reccomended) This package contains a "new" aircraft, the Yak-14 (NATO Codename "Mare") advanced jet trainer and light attack aircraft. It is based on, and rebuilt from, Pasko's T-33 T-Bird as this was the aircraft (suitably repainted and rebadged) used in the 1949 motion picture "Jet Pilot". This represents the aircaft flown (#58) by Lt. Anna Marladovan (aka Olga Orlief) as played by Janet Leigh. The aircraft is finished in "Soviet Dark Green", and all markings are decals. Skin maps remain in lo-rez bitmaps. All marking are decals, and decal Randomization is TRUE. New era specific Soviet pilot figures are included (the newer 'RedAir1' figure). It uses all stock 3W Soviet/WP weapons, but 'new' drop tanks are included. The canopy operates with the Standard Animation Keystroke (tm), Shift/0 (zero). On the aircraft selection drop down, you'll see: Yak-14 "Mare" (P) The (P) designates that this was built from Pasko's old T-33.

View File SF2 F-86A Sabre, 1st Fighter Group Skin Pack SF2 F-86A Sabre, 1st Fighter group Skin Pack 7/24/2019 -For SF2, Any and All (Full Merged Recommended) This is a NEW skin pack for the F-86A Sabre. It is designed to be used on the F-86A-5 available from SF2 KAW Sabres Pack. The Sabre(s) are to be found at the following URL: https://combatace.com/files/file/13604-sf2-korean-war-era-f-86-sabre-pak/ **Be advised! These are for CONUS based Sabres ONLY!! Do =not= use this set within your KAW mods folder! You are advised to have the aircraft installed into another mods folder for proper year-span & theatre usage.** This skin set represents the 3 squadrons of the 1st Fighter Group in 1949 when they received the first operational F-86A Sabres at March AFB, and later based George AFB here in California. In the 1950s, the squadrons were dispersed across the US in the Air Defence role, but that's another story. The squadrons are: 94th FIS "Hat in the Ring" 27th FIS "Fighting Eagles" 71st FIS "The Ironmen" The skins are in jpg format, and each have 26 all NEW serial number decals. On the number list for each squadron (individial aircraft serial) drop down, any serial marked with a star (*) has been positively identified as having served in that squadron. Those marked with a cross/plus sign, (+) have been identified as having been assigned to the 1st FG. Those without any markings are generic F-86A serials. It should be noted, due to a lack of a full squadron roster, some of the serials will be repeated across all three squadrons. This could not be helped. ALL markings are decals, expecially the squadron flashes on the fuselage. Other squadron markings, the tail bands, are painted on for each squadron. On the skin selection menu, on the Loadout Page, you'll see: 94th FIS, 1st FG (49-54) 27th FIS, 1st FG (49-54) 71st FIS, 1st FG (49-54) As the game tends to order things by number in the aircraft main ini (F-86A.ini), you may want to edit them into the order shown above. The 94th was the first operational unit, followed by the 27th, and lastly the 71st. The SF2 "date switch" =IS= active on this skin. It will automatically be chosen as the default skin(s) from 1949. As these units were never deployed outside the Continental US, it is NOT reccomended they be used in your KAW install. As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for the install instructions. For more information on the 1st FG, you are encouraged to look up it's long and distinguished history from World War 1 to the Present Day. As an added bonus, a one sheet "expliotation" comic-style jpg is enclosed in the main aircraft folder. It's from one of the Hollywood "newspapers" (read: tabloids) of the time. I stumbled across it, and now share it with you all!! Happy Landings! Wrench Kevin Stein Submitter Wrench Submitted 07/24/2019 Category F-86

  11. To start it off... Jet Pilot (1949, released in 1957) JOHN WAYNE!!! Our Hero intercepts our "defecting"Heroine approaching Alaska (and yes, the Bort number and Sabre's serial ARE correct!)
  12. No, just continue posting in this thread. There's no need to waste more bandwith and storage space with additional threads Although, why continuing to carry on about 'how it works' seem redundant -- we've been doing it this way for over 10 years (counting seperate installs for 1stGens as well). So, we KNOW it works.
  13. Curious that no one asked the obvious question: Are you using any of the available weapons packs???
  14. Simple: to eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination between mods. Some things are not meant to be mixed together. That's why we built them that way

  20. Not in this game. I've been playing and modding it since 2003. It's not possible. You're allowed a maximum of 32000 rounds of ammo (and the attendant weight penalties). To get that you'd need to extract and edit every single data ini for every aircraft that carries a gun, and place them into each and every one of their respective aircraft folders. Missiles and bombs are another story altogether. Meaning: weight limits of the hardpoint, aerodynamic forces of said overloaded hardpoint, limitations of the avionics (IR vs SAHM vs AHM). Most of us have spent an inordinate amount of time trying to REMOVE arcade-ism from the SF series. Making it as realistic as the engine's physics will allow. You want arcade, this ain't the game.
  21. not possible; the game is NOT coded for arcade-ism. Even if it is sim-lite all you can go is "Easy". Check the Options menu, Gameplay, customize
  22. probably because they fucked up the meshes. way to test this would be to open it in Mue's Lod Viewer and "show all nodes on texture"
  23. AFAIK, those max file no longer exist.
  24. Yeah, like that's gonna bloody happen!!!
