  1. 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.

  2. Enhancement Pack for TW DLC 23 - F-4N Phantom II

    DLC 23 F-4N PHANTOM II ENHANCEMENT PACK
     
     
    This is a mod to enhance the DLC F-4N. It includes data.ini's for smoky engines,
    realistic weapons and drooping ailerons. It also features many skins that have been
    touched up using Sundowners templates. Finally it has 100 historic BuNo's, and
    several styles and colors for modexes. It covers a wide spread of N users without
    becoming completely OCD.
     
    Included are:
     
    -3 F-4N aircraft (N, N_77, N_80) to help keep some order and smallness of file size. skins covered include USN/MC Grey, Overall Gloss
    Gloss Gull Gray(circa 1980), Lo Viz Grey (1981) and TPS (1983). Ferris and Heater Ferris were not used for the most part on N models.
    -my expanded squadronlist.ini. tho many units are stock in here, several will not show without this. Plus it's got room for anybody you
    can think of and then some more.
    -an expansive NavalF4 decal folder to cover all years after Vietnam (EXCEPT 1976). not all will be full right now, but
    they will be filled up with some future planned mods.
    -a Numbers folder with Buno's for the N, and several styles of Modex's
    -smokier engine effects for the J-79s.
    -J-79 engine sounds
     
    REQUIRED: The TW F-4N Phantom II, DLC 23.
     
    INSTALLATION:
    same as any other mod. unzip the file, paste into your mod folder, allow overwrites for old copies
    of the smoke effects and the F-4N.ini.
     
    CREDITS
     
    First is a HUGE THANK YOU to mytai01. much of this work is based off of his model for decalling the F-4 Phantom.
    Some of the nn tgas are even lifted off his B model skins and adjusted into N models BuNos. Those that have seen
    his work will recognize much influence in this mod.
     
    Thanks to Sundowner for his templates. With a Sundowner template, you have to work hard to screw up a skin!!!!!
     
    As with all my Phantom mods, thank you to Spillone104 for his J-79 effects. I do like them so, and hope
    you will as well.
     
    thanks to JSF_Aggie for his drooping aileron edit for the data.ini. although TK fixed that in the July
    2013 patch, i have not patched there yet and know that many still haven't. for the time being the mod
    uses JSF_Aggie's work.
     
    Thanks to Gerwin, Blade, Wrench, Dave, mppd, Ghost531 and many others who have given me answers and resources
    to many technical questions the last year and a half I've been working this.
     
    special thanks to Ghost531 and CrazyHorseB34 for getting me off my fourth point of contact when stalled
    on this project
     
    and as always thanks to TK who developed both the game and the particular DLC, then left enough work for
    likes of me to fill in.
     
     
     
     
    again thank you for downloading this mod and i hope that you enjoy it!

    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.

    INCLUDED

    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

  6. Post Vietnam USAF F-4 Phantom INI, Skins and Decal mod

    This is a simple mod for the stock TW USAF Phantoms. It uses new decal folders to allow tailcodes for most units that flew after 1973, four main paint schemes that were used between Vietnam and the Phantom's Phinal Phlights in the 90's, and ini edits to take advantage of some effects, sounds and new weapons loadouts. If you wish to know more, please read the readme it should explain most everything. Thank you to Sundowner(most of the skins), Malibu43 and Spillone104, Slartibartfast, Wrench, Dave, EricJ and a host of others. I hope that You enjoy
     
    built up in SF2V/E/I/EXP1 and 2, Windows Vista. Will need SF2E to make all Phantoms work. Now updated to Sep 2011 patch.

  7. NATO Trainer Cargo Aircraft CT-49A

    This is the NATO E-3 Components TCA,(USAF designated CT-49A) based on the 707-320. These aircraft are use for pilot training of the E-3 Component and for cargo and troop transport as needed. Three are operated by NATO and a total of 5 have ever flown under NATO colors. This mod includes a touch up of the OTAN skin found in the TMF E-3A release and decals for all 5 TCA's ever registered in Luxemborg. It also includes the Sentry cockpit to make it flyable, or if you have the 707-300 already you can drop the CT-49 skin in and it will work as well. I hope you enjoy!

  8. 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......

  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

  10. 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

  11. 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
    Credits
    BPAO- original model
    Dave- head of/released original project

  12. SAC Twilight: B-52G/H Stratofortress

                               SAC Twilight B-52G/H Skinpack and Upgrade Package
    This is a package that adds several historical skins with nose arts to the B-52G_89 and B-52H_88 aircraft. Several skins also include my skin as tga method to allow several camo schemes in one skin. It also upgrades the weapons loadouts and data.ini's for better
    historical accuracy
        Included
    - B-52G_89 and B-52H_88 aircraft with new loading screens, data ini, loadout ini, historical serials and nose arts
    - weapons including a new B28FI_350 nuclear bomb and upgraded data inis for others
    - effects and sounds for aircraft and weapons
        Installation
    unzip package, put into mod folder, allow overwrites for items that you already have
        AIRCRAFT NOTES
    several skins have tga based skin to represent SIOP mod, Strategic, and all grey camo. this leads to the decal folder being large (over 3.5GB).
        
        B28 NOTES
    the B28FI weapon included is to represent a laydown delivered weapon. it should not be released lower than 1600 ft AGL and slower than 515kts. the B28RI weapon should not be released lower than 6000ft AGL.
    not responsible for fragging is these guidelines are not met.

  13. TMF E-3A Sentry for SF2 series

    This is The Mirage Factory's E-3A Sentry packaged as an individual aircraft for SF2 series. Included is a NATO skin by AmokFloo, the original 552d Flagship skin, and skins representing each squadron that flies the Sentry. Also included are decals for all NATO assigned aircraft and the Core 23 aircraft purchased by the USAF in the 70's. This should add some airborne eye candy to your installs, particularly Europe and the Middle East.
     
    To install simply drop the folders into the correct areas of your mods folder.
     
    Thank you to The Mirage Factory, AmokFloo, Dave and several others for their work on this project. i hope you enjoy this mod, and lets see how can form their favorite fighter on the wing long enough for a screenie!

  14. ANG SLUF Pack- featuring TMF A-7D and A-7K

    This is an updated skinpack to reflect all USAF users of the SLUF after the bicentennial.
    Every unit tactical unit is included, as well as the 4450th TG that was a cover for the
    F-117A's at Tonopah. Most every scheme by every unit is in here; BUT for some units that had
    different tail stripes for different flights rather than squadrons(i.e Puerto Rico), i picked one color and
    went with that.
     
    INSTALLATION
    open the main folder, copy and paste into the mod folder of your choice and allow overwrites
     
    INCLUDED
    -4 diferent A-7D aircraft with one of the different paint schemes as a universal skin. changes
    were limited to making 4 aircraft from 2, and adjusting the data.ini for the new droptanks
    (A-7D_78TMF, A-7D80TMF, A-7D84TMF, A-7D_87TMF)
    -1 A-7K with 4 different skins. droptanks for this are set for green as that is when the bulk
    of these aircraft served was the SEA Wrap and Euro 1 era.
    -3 sets of droptanks to work with the different A-7D models
    - comprhensive decal set including 95 D model serials, 28 K model serials, and markings for
    all units that flew in the paint schemes represented
    - my expanded squadronlist.ini. helps to keep the tga's in order
     
    References
    Color and Markings #19: A-7 Corsair in USAF Service

    Thanks to / Credits
    The Mirage Factory for the original aircraft.

  15. 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
     
    CREDITS
    Marcfighters............. KC-10 physical model
    daddyairplanes........ conversion, new skin and template, decal work and ini edits
    Kesselbrut................. for his C-130J-30_cockpit
     
    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

  16. 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

  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!!!

  19. 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

  20. Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89


                                                                                                                                                Operation Desert Storm Skinpack and Updates for B-52G_89
        This Mod will add ODS skins for the B-52G_89 found here
    some weapon, ini, effects and sound edits are also included to enhance the operation of this classic bomber
        Included:
    Updated and reskinned B-52G_89, Decal set that puts multiple camoflages on each skin and at least a dozen Historical aircraft with Unit markings and nose art, updated weapons common to that version of the aircraft, a fake gunpod pylon for use with dual MERs, and updated sounds and effects.
        Historical Notes:
    Although you can fly em all, the only accurate skin to fly within ODS would be the Jeddah skin. The others flew from off of the various Iraq terrains available.
    Bomb missions markings not included as these are set to represent the beginning of the campaign.
    While many other weapons can be carried, the improved ones are the ones carried during Desert Storm, and strategic weapons (nukes)
    While ALCM pylon is missing (more below), it only affects the Senior Surprise mission from Barksdale AFB (16-17 Jan 1991). The other Bomb Wings did not employ CALCMs
        Installation:
    unzip. put all folders EXCEPT Templates into desired mod folder. Allow overwrites as needed.
        Known Issues:
    While there is currently a new Hound Dog pylon selectable in the download menu, there is not an ALCM pylon. While some sources state that the CALCMs were carried on the stub pylons, I find that not too likely.but it is how it is carried in game at this time. Either I will learn Blender and create one in the future, or a volunteer would be welcomed to create one (likely a faster route). But at time of initial release (24/12/2018) the cruise missiles are carried on the stubs.

  21. 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.

  22. F-4D_78 LORAN

    This is a modification of the original F-4D LORAN by mppd and brought to Gen2 standard by Wrench. I merely added the parts that made it a LORAN bird to the stock F-4D_78 and added four skins and three units from my skin/decal pack. As with most of my main install this mod deals with the post Vietnam era to the end of the Cold War.
     
    After involvement in Southeast Asia wound down in 1973 the ARN-92 LORAN Phantoms were sent to 3 units for the precision strike role. These were:
    23d TFS 52d TFW Spangdahlem AB West Germany
    457th TFS AFRES Carswell AFB TX
    704th TFS AFRES Bergstrom AFB TX
     
    This mod highlights these units in all tactical paint schemes used by the F-4.
    Thank you for downloading this mod, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

  23. F-4J_74

    This is a simple mod adding DECM pods to the stock F-4J. Most of the rest of the aircraft is stock although i did add SPillone104s exhaust mods as are present on most of my Phantoms. I have more in progress as part of a larger pack but thought that you all might enjoy having this out there in the meantime. HUGE thanks to mppd for sending me his work on the DECM, without which this would not be possible!

  24. Stock F-4 Phantom 2 USAFCamo1 Decalpack, and Ini Tweek

    As the title says, this adjusts the SEA scheme in game to accept the later year Units. Earlier Phantom models have a second skin named SEA73, while later models just have their decal ini's editted. I have also included the effects, weapons and sounds from my Post Vietnam Pack as well as some new loading screens. This also includes the 95% finished version of my all ube squadronlist.ini, now with many place holders so that patching should not throw the squadrons into disarray.
     
    Created in Full5 merged, but should work in any stand alone SF2 version except for NA. Will need SF2Europe for the D and E _75 and _78.
     
    Install is the same as always. For further questions please consult the readme.
     
    Any issues with tailcodes, please post a screenshot with your question or gripe. And do remember, this is meant for after 1973, so the tailcodes will not be the same.
    In fact many Vietnam era users will have blank tails as they no longer flew the Phantom after 1973-74. If you want that user, regular USAFCamo1 is left alone for all models prior to 1975.
     
    I hope you enjoy this mod!

  25. DLC21 USAF F-4 Skinpack Decalpack and Ini tweeks

    This corrects one of the main faults of the USAF Skinpack in the DLC store, white tailcodes! I also have included many additional units as well as a Word document detailing which tactical units flew the Phantom in its later service with the USAF. I also have included many of the improvements from my previous post Vietnam pack, as well as my mostly finished squadronlist.ini. That ini is set up so that there will be minimal interuption from future patches, and DOES include all tactical Phantom phlyers, at least in US service.
     
    NOTE: all paint schemes came about in 1978 or later. as such i have not included any units that did not fly the Phantom in that timeframe. If you pick a Phantom unit that changed over after 1974, it will have a blank tail!!!
    ALSO NOTE: a few of the ADC units (like the 111th FIS of the Texas ANG) used a different system for serial numbers than the skins in here. Please read the document on Phantom units before griping that i missed someone!!!
     
    Installation is same as usual, unzip, copy to mod folders and allow overwrite.
     
    Finally, with one exception I have not included the skins themselves. To all the oldtimers here, i know that skins are usually fairgame. However, given that is the point of this DLC, i opted not to include the whole skin to avoid pissing off TK and getting skins locked.The exception is the F-4C_67, as he did not include that in the DLC.
     
    I hope that you all enjoy this mod.
