  1. KC-135 Skinpack 2: Post Vietnam (1975-1987)

    USAF KC-135 Skinpack 2: 1974 through 1987
    This skin pack will feature skins for all USAF KC-135 users from 1974 until 1987. This includes the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves as the aircraft became available.
    Requirements: any version of Strike Fighters 2, and the KC-135 mod found here
    Installation:     
            first, get the Mirage Factory C-135A/B and KC-135A/E/R 1.0 from the above link (if you dont have it already)
            then unzip this to the mod folder, allowing overwrites.
            
    Known Issues:
             this is meant as eye candy. unfortunately, SF2 doesnt support air to air refueling so the best to be done is set up a recon mission and then park it in an orbit.
            Also, Dels C-130 pit does not line up with the model very well. it is included mainly so that it can be player selected (i had to test it somehow).
            In the skins with ADC tgas, loading more than 8 aircraft on a mission will produce irregularities (like only the front half of the camo showing). So far I have not seen more than 8 on a ramp, and it is doubtful you need to load more than that in one area for a mission. Just be warned if you throw all 16 in at once.
            BTW, this thing is huge!!! over 3 1/2 GB size
    So, Whats Included?:
        Skins with at least two examples from every USAF unit to fly the KC-135 from 1974 - 1987, with separate skins for Active Duty and reserve forces
        Colors represented include silver lacquer, ADC gray, and Shamu dark grey over medium grey.
        Skins from 1987 have a mix of Shamu and ADC grey colors as tga. Same skin, two different paint jobs
        Skins from 1983-1985 have a mix of ADC grey and silver lacquer colors. Skins from the 1970s are all silver lacquer and minimal tail markings
        Engines on the A models were adjusted to produce heavy smoke at max thrust. Burning water, just like the real thing.
        Drogue to simulate refueling probe equipped aircraft. Added in loadout screen

  2. KC-135 Skinpack 3: Late 1980s

    USAF KC-135 Skinpack 3: Late 1980s
    This skin pack will feature skins for all USAF KC-135 users from the late 1980s. This includes the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves. Many of the skins serials and nose arts are the same as in ODS, which the aircraft would participate in a few years after this period. This also represents the era that the Shamu scheme became more common and that nose art made a comeback on USAF aircraft.
    Requirements:
    any version of Strike Fighters 2, and the KC-135 mod found here
     
    Installation:     
            first, get the Mirage Factory C-135A/B and KC-135A/E/R 1.0 from the above link (if you dont have it already)
            then unzip this to the mod folder, allowing overwrites.

        Skins with at least two examples from every USAF unit to fly the KC-135 during the late 80s, with separate skins for Active Duty and
        reserve forces

  3. KC-135 Skin Pack 1: Operation Desert Storm

     
    This skinpack adds in historical aircraft as used in Desert Storm for the A, E and R models KC-135. It is as close as possible with unit markings and features several nose arts.
        Included
    Skins and decals for KC-135A/E/R models
    Cockpit and ini edits to make player flyable

        Required
    you will need the original KC-135 pack available here
     
        Installation
    download and install the above mod per its instructions
    unzip this mod, then install new mod folder categories to your mod folder (Aircraft to aircraft etc)
    allow overwrites
    fire up game, take off and go pass gas
        KNOWN ISSUES
    This was originally an AI only aircraft. I added Dels C-130 pit so that it was flyable and I could check my work. That said, it is best to not fly from the cockpit as the Hercules' window frames don't match with the Stratotanker's windows.
       UNIQUE FEATURES
    As with most of my large aircraft mods, the skins are tga based. this means if you look for a Baby Shamu skin, you will only see a plain grey skin. When you fire it up in game, you will see a mix of ADC Grey and Baby Shamu.
    AT THE START OF EACH SERIAL NUMBER IN THE DROP DOWN IS A LETTER, (a) FOR ADC Grey WITH FULL COLOR AND (s) FOR THE CAMO'D Baby Shamu SCHEME WITH SUBDUED MARKINGS

  5. Skin Pack for TMF Boeing 707-300

    TMF Boeing 707-300 Comprehensive Skinpack
    This mod will replace the individual skins for the TMF 707 and adds my multi airline skins to it, covering the eras from the early 1960s until the late 1980s and will add some eye candy to your parking ramps or make for interesting intercept and escort targets
        INSTALLATION
    This is only a skin pack with some additional items. First you will need the original located here:
    then unzip and add this mod as well. allow overwrites.
    You can delete the previous skins if you want, as they are represented in the skin pack
    IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN NATIONS.INI, ADD FROM THE GIVEN TEXT FILE. This is for heavily modded installs
        INCLUDED
    Decal sets covering most major users from 1959 until 1989
    Skins to cover that time period in 9 blocks, with bare metal base skins
    Nations and Formations ini for the "Airline" nation
        KNOWN ISSUES
    Number 1:  THIS THING IS BIG! the fuselage tgas are 2048x2048 (working with details over an entire fuselage rather than basic colors
    and curves) and the biggest sets are representing 32 airlines in their era! So this is not for the small of HDD space
    Number 2: Due to quirks in the model, and ease for the modder it is not 100% aligned as in RL. the cabin windows are a little lower (which
    allowed the logos to go one easier), and the curves tend to stop short of the radome.
    Number 3: this uses the Herc pit to be flyable. I ad it to be able to check the decals, but leave it for those that may want to use it.
    The pit is a piss poor match however, both with frames blocking and the higher tech than available even into the 80s for civilian birds
    It is meant as eye candy, not operational missions.
    Number 4: due to the size of things, some of the lettering is not to legible when you get close to it. Again, eye candy, its meant to be seen
    from the runway when taking off or on an intercept. If your that close to see "hey it really is fuzzy" you will probably collide. Besides, the
    thing is huge as is at teh current tga size
        UNSOLICTED ADVICE
    I am one of those that likes all encompassing mods. If you have a certain era you would rather focus on, by all means delete the other eras
    that you don't need. Again this thing is huge, but covers almost every user from 1959 through 1989.

  6. E-8A/C Joint STARS

                                  E-8A/C Joint STARS
    This mod builds upon the E-8C found in the original ODS campaign and corrects for an E-8A as used in Desert Storm.
        Included
    E-8A with skins for Desert Storm, Testing (92-95), and Bosnia
    E-8C with skins for the 93d ACW and the 116th ACW Georgia Air National Guard
        Installation
    unzip, cut/copy and paste to mod folder. allow overwrite (should only apply to ODS mod folders), although for best results remove the old E-8C files from aircraft and decals.
        Credits
    the original model and skin was created by The Mirage Factory, based on the 707 model by Bpao
    C-130 pit by dels
    Skin adjustments, tga and ini work by daddyairplanes
    original moddable game by TK
        Known Issues
    dels C-130 pit is used to make the aircraft player flyable. this pit is not very suited to the 707 airframe (alot of extra frame for a 707), but works for its purpose. The aircraft was not originally intended to be player flyable (airborne command and control not being a player mission set) and is best used as eye candy. However, i always put a pit in so i can see how my work progressed, and leave it for you guys to use too.
    I hope you enjoy this mod

  7. Desert Storm Skins for Dels new C-130

    Operation Desert Storm Skin pack for C-130E/H
     
    This set creates skins for Dels new C-130s and incorporates historical nose art for the E model,
    and historical serials and unit markings for both models. Due to lack of images, no nose arts are provided
    for the H models. It is intended for use in the ODS campaign, or use it on your own.
     
    Included:
    C-130E_SKE - ODS skin, several historical nose arts, new hangar and loading screens, minor ini edits
    C-130H3 - ODS skin, new hangar and loading screens, minor ini edits
     
    Installation instructions
    1st in either event
    Get Dels C-130 Pack located here http://combatace.com/files/file/16427-c-130-hercules-superpack/
     
    Normal install
    unzip, allow overwrites (should be minimal), go fly
     
    ODS install
    go into your aircraft folder and delete the C-130E and C-130H aircraft
    you may also want to go into the Decal folder to delete the C-130E and C-130H folders to save space, but it not necessary
    unzip, allow overwrites (should be minimal), go fly
    THE ABOVE WILL PROVIDE THE BEST RESULTS. THE AIRCRAFT IN THE CURRENT VERSION OF ODS ARE THE OLDER MODELS, THIS IMPORTS THE NEWEST MODELS INTO THE MOD
     
    In Campaign: no edits are needed to put this aircraft into the current ODS or MOAB campaigns. However the old Herks
    originally included in the install should be deleted to make it more likely for the new Herks to appear in game. That
    and they are the older models with not accurate skin sets anyhow.
     
    Credits

  8. Updated Boeing 757-200

    Updated 757-200 for SF2
     
    This is an update of YEYEYEs SF1 release for use in SF2. I have applied my usual technique to incorporate multiple airlines on one skin per era, with 4 eras from release in the
    mid 1980s through the mid 1990s. More may become available later but templates are included for those that don't want to wait on me.
     
    Installation
    unzip, open folder titled "Mod Folder" and allow overwrites.
    IF YOU HAVE A PREVIOUSLY MODDED FOLDER
    1. delete flight and terrains from "Mod Folder". 2 open the "Specials Folder", insert the nations txt file into your Nations.ini and the terrain txt file into your
    (whatever)Nations.ini in the needed terrain folder.
    templates to wherever you keep files for modding, or delete if you do not desire to mod it
     
    Known Issues
    - It is a bit slow on the pickup. while it can take off from a smaller airbase, best to stick to larger fields
    - It features the same pit as the 767 and other airliners. we do not have an in house pit that is more appropriate at the moment and so most airliners are stuck looking like generic WWII
    bomber pits
    - It has a seam on the bottom of the model that is very pronounced given the decal based marking system i use. however this should not be to noticeable unless you approach it from below.
    When parked on the ground or viewed from the side or above the seam is not noticeable.
    - for all above faults, remember: it is meant as eye candy, not an operational bird! enjoy taking off from Keflavik or Rhein Main and seeing many airlines parked on one ramp

  9. DC-8 Series by Veltro2k

    Douglas DC-8 series By Veltro2k
     
    This mod features three versions of the Douglas DC-8 jetliner and historical skinsets from introduction in the early '60s through the mid '80s. A little something for eye candy around the airfields or to run intercepts on.
     
    Versions
    *DC-8 representing the original DC-8-10/20/30/40 versions with the quieting tubes on the exhaust
    *DC-8-50 representing the final short fuselage version and JT3D engines without quieting tubes
    *DC-8-60 representing two of the final new build versions with stretched fuselage.
    *several historical skinsets for all models
    *flight and nations ini edits to allow airliner nation and a spaced out in line formation
     
    Installation
    unzip and load into mods folder. allow merging
     
    Known Issues
    * The cockpit is the same pit as in all V2k's big jet planes. Not proper but the plane was meant for eye candy not regular missions
    * The DC-8-50 model has a seam running along the spine. Until Veltro makes an appearance again this will be there. It is not noticeable at a distance
    *This is a huge mod (4 1/2 GB) due to how i've made the skins, or specifically the tgas for the fuselage.It takes a bigger decal to paint the side of an airliner
     
    Credits
    Veltro2k original model
    daddyairplanes skin and tga work, some ini edits
    stratos, whiteknight06604 last chance, eyes on testing
     

    I hope you enjoy this mod as much as i enjoyed making it

  10. USAF A-37B Pack

    A-37B USAF Pack
    This is the current end point for two years worth of work. Centurion-1 began by creating a new model for the Super Tweet, several contributors later we are releasing it to you
     
    Included are decals, new J85 sound, an updated squadronlist.ini, appropriate weapons, and 3 versions of the aircraft.
    - A-37B: the original, as used by the USAF, Air National Guard, and several Latin American air arms. no refuel probe
    - A-37B (76): adds refuel probe, as used by US ANG and USAF Reserve units the second half of the 1970s
    - OA-37B: Final version as in US service, and as currently used by Latin American air arms. With refuel probe
    - Photoshop templates for those that want to bring the other air forces into play
     
    **********************************KNOWN ISSUES***********************************************************
    -Cockpit is missing throttles. Unless Centruion1 returns this is unresolveable
    -Lod is locked in, unless Centurion-1 returns.
    -Modders: there is a bleed issue on the right side. any bands like the VNAF had need to be on skin, not tga. small decals like insignia work fine.
    -This mod uses my master squadronlist.ini. IF installed into another install with other than stock squadronlist, do not install. It will mess up the other things on your install and my mod is adapted to force the decals.
     
    NOTICE: this mod currently is AS IS and can only be modded by skinning and ini edits. It's not perfect, but its
    in house and therefore free.
    ********************************************************************************************************************************
    Installation: drop into mod folders. allow overwrites if it comes up. Delete DAT version, this replaces and upgrades player experience. Modders, put the templates where you wish to work on them
    DON'T FORGET TO BACK UP BEFORE INSTALLING!
     
    ****************NOTE!!!!!! IMPORTANT NOTE *************************************************************
     
    If you install this in a install that has eburgers SF2V Air & Ground Expansion Pack, DO NOT INSTALL THE PILOTDATA FOLDER!!!! This will overwrite the Squadronlist.ini in the pack and may break something. If you do not have the Air&Ground pack or NATO Fighters installed the new squadronlist ini will work fine and be a big improvement for units available.

  12. Florian's Airbus A310 Family

    Airbus A310 Family by Florian
     
    This mod brings the A310 and it's variants into the game. As with most of my airliners, the skins are divided by eras and the airlines are the serials. I have represented airlines that are typically found in European and Middle Eastern skies. This time aroundI have also included the psd for the skin itself andthe xcf file to create airlines in Gimp.
     
    BIG Thanks to Florian who reached out with a new model when he heard I was giving this bird some new clothes!
     
    Includes
    Airbus A310-100, -200 and CC-150 aircraft with multiple skins each (and multiple airlines per civil skin)
    Flight folder with adjusted Nations and Formation inis
    Templates for the skin and tgas

     
    Instructions
     
    unzip and install. place folders where they go and allow overwrite.
    IF... you should have the old version, delete and upload this one. It has Florian's new models.
     
    SHOULD work with all version of game, created on a full 5+2 merged install.
     
    Known Issues
    the cockpit is the C-47 pit to make it flyable no not realistic, but until we have at least a generic
    modern airliner pit or better its what is avail. besides, this is meant for eye candy on the airfields or intercepts not as a main mission bird.

    Credits
    Florian - model and time to rework said model
    DA - skin layout, airline tga work, airliner nation and edits needed for that, minor data.ini adjustment
    mue - his LOD viewer deserves mention on all skin projects for the time it saves
    TW - the original game

  13. IDF/AF "Anak" skin for Veltro's C-97

    This mod represents the Israeli Air Force's Stratofreighter tankers. It has several historically accurate serials based on available photographs
    and a decal sheet set. For simplicity I chose to release this as a skin for the C-97G rather than ini editing the radomes off for a proper B377.
     
    Included
    One skin for the aircraft and one folder for the decals
     
    Required
    Veltro2k and Wrench's C-97G Stratofreighter mod : http://combatace.com/files/file/15862-sf2-boeing-c-97-cargo-hc-97-ars-pak/

  15. Update for TMF E-3 Sentry

    USAF/NATO E-3 Sentry Pack
     
    This mod will put the TF33 powered E-3 Sentry in game. It includes the original model and a Block 30/35 model
    with the ESM fairings on the cheeks and chin. 31 Historical serial numbers are incluled for USAF, 18 for NATO.
    Skins are FAIRLY historical although accurate representation of units by tail stripe was difficult due to
    lack of Photos with documentation.
     
    INSTALLATION
    Same as any other mod. Unzip, cut and past to mods folder. allow merge with Aircraft and Decals folders.
     
    INCLUDED
    E-3A with a 77, 83, ODS and 94 skin as well as NATO
    E-3C Blk30/35 with a 97 and NATO skin and ESM pods added
    ESM and fakepilot objects for pilots folder
     
    CREDITS
    TMF- the original 3D modeland original USAF skin.
    Florian- NATO skins and tweeks to USAF. While I prefer decals, these are good enough I only had to do
    serial numbers and nose badges. Also provided the original inspiration for the ESM pods part of the mod
    yakarov79- the fake pilot ESM pods
    Dave- consultation and approvals on the original project
    Daddyairplanes- serial numbers, new arrangement for skins, general ini editing

  16. Upgrade Kit for C-17 Globemaster III (V2K)

    C-17 Globemaster III Upgrade
    by daddyairplanes
     

    This mod upgrades Veltro2k's C-17 Globemaster III to incorporate all tactical USAF and all foreign users. It has skins for all 9 C-17 operators as well as time specific in the USAF and a couple of fictional skins (15 in all). The base skin has been updated by Flogger23 and myself, and ini updated by yours truly.
     
    ***************************** Installation: ********************************
    unzip, copy to mods folder, allow overwrite if needed.
     
    *****************************Known Issues********************************
    -The cockpit is nonexistant. These are mainly as AI and the mission set for transports is limited so this will probably not be fixed soon
    -while cargo statements are included in the data.ini, there is a wall at the back of the cargo bay that prevents the interior from being seen. If this is remodeled, i will include cargo "weapons" and tweek the positions.
    -the Qatar VIP skin does not have "Qatar" decal on the bottom. It left a mark on the right side as a tga and was too screwy looking being on the seam of the skin so i left it off.
     
    *********************Contibutors and Thanks to: ********************
    Veltro2K- created the original model
    Flogger23- reworked the skin for better looking panel lines and other features
    Lazarus1177- pointing out to use jpeg rather than bmp. Learn something new everyday
    daddyairplanes- tga work, ini editting, stubborn determination to see more than just one unit on a skin
    airliners.net- loading and hangar screens
    Dave, Muesli, Flogger23, Viggen, Lazarus1177, allenjb42- other sets of eyes to catch what i screwed up on
     
    I hope you enjoy this mod and airlift the troops right to the enemies doorstep.

  17. Boeing 767 Skin Pack

    Boeing 767 Skin Pack
    by daddyairplanes
     
    This is a mod to add multiple airlines to Veltro2k's 767 airliner. This mod also adds
    the airliner nation and formation so that a stream can be generated in game.
     
    ********************************* NOTICE ************************************
     
    This mod displays several airlines at once on the same skin. I use a few tricks in ini editting and tga work to do this. this mod is partial free use, just do not add a complete other skin to it for a new airlines. Any additional airlines requested I am willing to make within the system i have set up. I set this up mainly to have better eye candy on the ramps, not see a dozen of the same airline.
     
    IF you have a request, pm me and i will knock it out for you asap, or teach you how to make the tgas.
     
    *********************************************************************************
     
    INSTALLATION
    Download V2k's 767 mod available here: http://combatace.com/files/file/15041-boeing-767/
    Download. Unzip. Place into mods folders. Allow overwrites.
     
    Known Issues
    The aircraft is abit slow to accelerate. Also the cockpit leaves much to be desired That said, this is best left as AI eye candy to run intercept or escort on, or be
    pleaseantly suprised when taking off from the airfield.
     
    Stock terrain edits are included so this mod shows. Additional editting will be needed to show in other terrains like Desert3 until the original modder chooses to add it in.
    BE CAREFUL IF YOU HAVE AN EDITTED STOCK TERRAIN!!!

  18. McDonnel Douglas DC-10-30

    Presenting ... The DC-10-30 Airliner! This bird is created from Marcfighters KC-10 model and some ini editing by yours truly to remove the AAR equipment. in this version the aircraft is shown as many airlines flew her in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. This supersedes the previous version.
    INCLUDED
    DC-10-30 aircraft (template included) with 70s,80s and 90s skins
    decals for same
    flight folder to modify nations and formation inis
    terrain folders to modify limited nations list for all stock terrains
    folders to adjust ODS, NF5 and SF2NA Exp Pack

    Marcfighters............. KC-10 physical model
    daddyairplanes........ conversion, new skin and template, decal work and ini edits

    THANKS TO
    TK ... for the base game
    Marcfighters ... for allowing me to run amok with his old baby
    Wrench, eburger68, Gepard, and the overall community ... for much advise and technical
    support on this project
    slartibarfast, viggen, macelena and others who crash tested this thing for me
     
    ******************************WARNING*******************************************************************************
    this bird is rather old, and has its limitations. it is not meant for flying on recon missions,
    but rather mainly for eye candy and somethin to possibly intercept or escort. while you CAN
    fly it, that does NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD. that said buyer beware all quirks of this bird like the pitch
    down on gear and flap retractions and the non moving control surfaces.
     
    ****************************USE OF THIS MOD*************************************************************************
    I will allow fairly free use of this mod in any other mod. What i (at this time) request is that you do not
    create a new skin based airline for it. the airlines are on as tga so that many airlines show up at one time.
    A seperate say "Pan Am" skin will ruin the effect and there will be 8-9 Pan Am birds on the tarmac. Any airline
    you would like to see, pm me and i will either tell you how to make it or time allowing make it and add in. Thank
    you.
     
    again, thank you for downloading this and i hope you enjoy it

  19. CFM powered E-3 Sentry Pack

    CFM E-3 Sentrys
    by daddyairplanes
     
    This mod adjusts Veltro2k's E-3D release to add all 3 E-3 versions that used CFM-56 engines. Included are the RAF's D model, French AF's F model and Royal Saudi AF's A model.
     
    Installation
    Unzip. Install into desired mod molder. Allow merging and overwrites
     
    Known Issues
    No there is not an ESM kit for the E-3F at this time. If a 3d modeller is able to assist in the future one may be added via fakepilot. However the French birds are the only ones to use that bit of equipment, so it is somewhat low priority.
     
    Aircraft Included
    Sentry AEW.1 (E-3D), E-3F Sentry and E-3A Sentry RSAF
     
    Credits
    Veltro2k: original model and original hangar screen for the E-3D
    daddyairplanes: ini edit to create E-3A_RSAF and E-3F, new hangars for mentioned aircraft based on original in E-3D, tga and ini edit work. improved D model skin and tga
    TK: the original moddable game
    Dave, eburger68: technical consultations on in game behavior
     
    I hope you enjoy this humble little mod.

    Skinpack for Veltro2k's C-5 Galaxy
     
    This mod brings about several historical skins for the C-5A Galaxy by Veltro2K. This mod adds several Euro 1 schemes, historical
    serial numbers for both A and B model Galaxies as well as representation of most every airlift unit that operated the C-5.
     
    Installation: unzip and install into your mods folder. Allow overwriting if needed. This mod can run in any and all versions of SF2.

    vehicle cargo to load into the cargo bay
     
    KNOWN ISSUE: the refueling markings on top are shown via tga. that tga projects a weird grey line on the left side of the fuselage only. there is not a fix
    at this time. how ever it is most noticeable on the white over grey and even then only at very close range. it is less noticeable on the camoflaged schemes. this will be fixed when possible, my apologies for any inconvienence. I felt that how it appears at normal viewing range vs time to fix, it was ready to release.

  22. C-141A Starlifter Redux 2

    This is primarily a skin pack although it fixes a few quirks in the data.ini that was pointed out in testing as well.
    Included are 3 historical skins: Natural Metal, White over Grey and European 1.
    A dozen serial numbers and represented units tied to those numbers
     
    Credits: BIG THANKS to Geary for the staring templates. He was much faster on panel lines than i could have been, and it does
    help a skin when it has proper panels and some weathering
    Veltro2k for the original model and some technical support
    Wrench for more tech support and updating the original some
    Muesli for testing the semi final product
    TK for the game itself
    me, well i just made the nat metal and lizard skins, decals and cleaned up a little round the inis and edges
     
    Install directions: drop the objects folder into your mod folder. Allow overwrites. No particular SF version needed and historically
    fits into all of them including Israel (resupply in '73).
     
    I hope you enjoy this mod

  23. USAF Unit Insignia Decals - Cold War era TFS

    this is a batch of squadron, wing and other patches i've used in the last year to enhance some of my mods. all are named for the unit they represent, names will likely have to be changed in your own mods to fit what you're doing. feel free to use them on skins or tga.
     
    as the title implies, these are Cold War era markings. where i could find and or as applies, they will say TACTICAL Fighter Squadron. these are not just knockoffs from Wikipedia's title page for the different units.
     
    no readme, if i have copied someone elses file and not credited please let me know. however i am 99.9% certain this is all me phishing Google images over the course of a year.

  24. KC-10A Extender

    The KC-10 Extender
     
    I made this mod after noticing that the aircraft in ODS was
    using a skin that was not use IRL until 3-4 years after Desert
    Storm. This fixes up skins for the Douglas (White over Grey with
    Blue cheatlines), Shamu (Green/Gray over Gray)and Gunship Gray
    schemes. I also added historical serial numbers to each skin, and
    did the unit markings tied into each serial number. (for you advanced
    modders out there, tied it as a 2 level rather than a 1 level). This will
    allow several units to appear when they show in game on the ramp.
     
    Installation
    just add Objects folder to your mod folder. If installing into an ODS
    install, allow overwrites.
     
    Additional Warning
    *************************************************************************
    this really should be left as an AI controlled plane. it is not really
    for any missons that would be represented in game anyhow.
    i just skinned it up to satisfy a little historical accuracy in the game.
    *************************************************************************
     
    Credits
     
    Marcfighters..........the model and original skin(served as a base for template)
    eburger68.............revised data.ini that made the FM more manageable
    myself................all other skins, template and tgas
    TK....................the game itself, and our ability to keep modding
     
    special thanks to Muesli, for helping me out trying to get the Dutch in the game as well.
     
    suggestion to those with mission editor:
    why not set up teh tankers on an orbit at a waypoint of a mission?
    then you could "simulate" tanking as part of the missions......

  25. Historical F-4B/J BuNos

    BuNo/ Serial Number mod for Stock F-4B and F-4Js
     
    This is a mod to add historical BuNos to the stock Phantoms. when researching Bunos for other Phantom models, i got the numbers for the
    B and J models first then took one hundred that survived to be retired as N or S models and did not crash with fatalities. this mod features the
    B and J numbers i started with,as well as the BuNos for the mig killers. I also adjusted data ini for smokier engines.
     
    ALL numbers after 099 are historical MiG killers, with a few that were already in the ones i had previously completed
     
    Installation: open the main folder, then the Stock folder. add the 3 folders inside to the mod folder of your choice, allowing overwrites and merges.
    if you have the USN/USMC DLC skinpack (DLC18) then open the DLC folder and follow the same directions above.
     
     
    Included: over 100 Buno's with 4 digit big and full Buno small for the F-4B and J
    adjusted decal ini's for all relevant skins
    spillone104s J79 effects and data.ini conversion to put them to use
    loading screens for each type
     
    ***************IMPORTANT NOTICE******************IMPORTANT NOTICE************************************************************************************
    This pack focuses on the gull gray over white and overall gull gray schemes. The Marines gave up the last B's in 1978, and the J's were retired around 1983.
    It was the N's and S's that wore most of the camo schemes and so i did not add any other color numbers than black. anyone wanting different colors is welcome
    to PM me for a tutorial on how to change decals in GIMP. this is again intended for the stock skins, not a major rework of the skins/decals
    ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    CREDITS
    TK for the overall game
    Spillone104 for the J79 exhaust effect
    macelena, Slartibartfast, Muesli and whiteknight0664 and for being my crash test volunteers in checking this thing
