  1. I can't remember exactly how much but my modded installs although are definitely several hundred GBs. It took a long time to back them up! My gaming PC is currently on a ship somewhere out in the Atlantic - however, I've backed up all my SF2 files on, not one but two external HDDs. I may even move some files onto my laptop just to really be safe!
  2. I can confirm that ship based land attack missiles work. I've seen USN ships launching missiles (Tomahawks IIRC) at Kharg Island for example on the Iran / Iraq map.
  3. You'll need access to the F-100D_DATA.INI file. If this isn't available then you'll have to extract it. Once you have access to DATA, it's a case of tinkering with things like: EmptyMass SLThrustDry (non-AB engine thrust) SLThrustWet (AB thrust) You'll also want to have a look at the Control Surfaces, especially the Right and Left Stabilisers. If you haven't already, I'd highly recommend reading the Knowledge section. And I'd also recommend downloading Notepad++ if you're going to make a habit of INI editing as it's a million times better than standard Notepad.
  4. Seconded. I don't even play single missions anymore without editing them with the editor. I now wonder how SF2 managed without it. IMO, it's biggest flaw is that I take probably more time setting up the missions than I do flying them - maybe a copy / paste feature or units templates would speed this up but probably won't ever happen. Being able to save individual missions from Campaigns to then use in the editor is a really great tool too. If I remember correctly, it'll even remember the that campaign mission's "borders", meaning that Soviet forces might be deep into West Germany (or vice versa) depending on how your campaign was going at the time.
  5. That I've love to see in SF2, as well as the EB-1C Vampire.
  6. Does this count as making Ace in a day?

  8. Ukraine Airlines crashed in Iran

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/11/iran-admits-shooting-down-ukrainian-airliner-unintentionally Iran has now admitted that it unintentionally shot down the airliner. Not a massive surprise as the evidence was mounting up.
  9. Iran strikes US bases in Iraq.

    Judging by the POTUS address earlier today, it looks like the US won't take any further action. However, it's interesting to note that the Ukrainian airliner that crashed just after take-off from Tehran was initially called an accident but that's now been rescinded. Of course, one theory is that the Iranians accidentally shot the airliner down thinking it was a US military aircraft. This would obviously be a major f**k-up if so as I can't see why an airliner wouldn't be transmitting the correct modes / codes. Interestingly, the Iranians are currently refusing to hand the black boxes over. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/01/08/iran-plane-crash-170-passengers-feared-dead-ukraine-boeing-737/ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/01/08/iran-plane-crash-analysis-happened-mid-air-has-black-box/ https://www.cnn.com/middleeast/live-news/iran-plane-crash-live-intl-hnk/index.html
  10. Iran strikes US bases in Iraq.

    The latest reports suggest no Coalition Forces casualties. And Trump has just released this on the POTUS' twitter feed: "All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning."
  11. Iran strikes US bases in Iraq.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/live/2020/jan/07/trump-news-today-live-impeachment-articles-iran-latest-updates-democrats Let's hope that Coalition casualties are at a minimum. I think it's fair to assume that the US response will be rapid.
  12. When those pesky reds try to sink your fleet, who you gonna call? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ F-15SE arsenal bird at your service. 24x AIM-120s (External) 4x AIM-9s (Internal) (PS. Refuelling Tankers to get it to the AOR not included) Minus the B-1R, this is probably the most amount of slammers you can get on a fighter (semi-realistically?) with no clipping / overlapping. Thanks to angelp (the 3AR racks) and the F-14Z Team (the mini 2AR racks)
  13. I'm no Skinner so I'm just happy I got decals in the right places! RAF 617 Sqn Eagle FGR3s in the liberation of Norway campaign, October 1991.
  14. I got an email from Thirdwire this morning confirming that my donation will get me the Win 10 "patch" when it comes and also a key/link to the SF2 Complete edition. I didn't expect the latter so I'm happy with that even if I do pretty much have all the games and DLC - although spread across 2 email accounts.
