  1. SF2_Norway_1986_v2.0

    (Excerpt from README file)
    This mission pack is designed to coincide with / complement Eburger68’s North Cape campaign. It is essentially the same scenario as the ‘Fighting Withdrawal’ campaign, told a slightly different way, with a twist and a new pack of single player missions designed to have some ‘story continuity’ to them.
    Part I is an eight-mission pack in which you are assigned to VF-84 as an F-14A (82) pilot in Carrier Air Wing EIGHT, in September of 1986. When the war begins and the Nimitz battle group begins its fighting withdrawal, you are going to have your hands full fighting off hordes of Soviet bombers and aiding your Norwegian allies every way you can.  
     Part II is a ten-mission pack in which you are assigned to VA-86 as an A-7E pilot in Carrier Air Wing EIGHT. When the war begins and the Nimitz battle group begins its fighting withdrawal, the two A-7E squadrons are detached temporarily to land bases in Norway to press the fight against the Soviet invaders in the north. Two of the missions are transits, with eight combat missions in between.
    Disclaimer: the weather in these missions isn't nearly as good as in the screenshots. ;)

    Setting
    In this ten-mission pack, you are assigned to VA-86 as an A-7E pilot in Carrier Air Wing EIGHT, in September of 1986. When WWIII begins and the Nimitz battle group begins its fighting withdrawal from Norwegian waters, the two A-7E squadrons are detached temporarily to land bases in Norway to press the fight against the Soviet invaders in the north.

    Requires Eburger86's North Cape user made campaign mod. 
    This is actually Part II of a two part release. Like the SW movies, they are being made out of order. :p

  3. SF2_2014_The Senkaku Conflict.7z

    “The Senkaku Conflict” is a set of 11 single player missions in which you fly as a member of the JASDF (Japanese Air Self Defense Force) against the Chinese in a limited, regional conflict. The missions form a 'linear' style campaign experience with the aid of an included briefing book. I've been frustrated by SF2's campaign mechanism and wanted to put out mission packs that tell a bit more story and are a bit more immersive in nature, rather than letting the game's campaign code just generate mission after mission with no real sense of continuity or panache.
     
    The premise of the missions is a gradually escalating dispute between Japan and China in October of 2014. While the conflict is fictional of course, the dispute over the Senkaku Islands is quite real and has the potential to turn into an actual flashpoint in the eastern Pacific. Some of the facts behind the conflict are mentioned in the Intelligence Overviews in the Mission Brief Book.
    A full explanation of all facets of the mod is included in the README file in the zip file. That is the place to start for a full description of the mission pack, as well as information on required mods needed to play.
     
    The Senkaku Conflict Mission Brief Book is included in the zip file in .pdf format. You'll need adobe acrobat reader in order to use the briefing book- I don't expect that will be a big issue for anyone here. The briefing book for this mission pack is what ties the missions together and tells the 'story' of what is happening and why. Unlike some of my other mission packs this 'campaign' does not branch, so the briefing book is somewhat simpler than in other mods where I've used the concept. A full explanation on the use and purpose of the briefing book is included in the README file.
     
    Enjoy!

  4. SF2_1991_War Plan Tripwire.7z

    A companion mod to Operation Nordic Storm (Nordic Storm is not required to play this). This is a pack of 19 single missions designed and written to form a slightly branching campaign experience with the aid of an included briefing book to guide you through the process. I've been frustrated by SF2's campaign mechanism and wanted to put out mission packs that tell a bit more story and are a bit more immersive in nature, rather than letting the game's campaign code just generate mission after mission with no real sense of continuity or panache.
     
    The mission pack is basically the land war happening in Germany before, during, and slightly after the events of Operation Nordic Storm. It's still WWIII in Europe, essentially, set in 1991. The premise is based on Tom Clancy's "Red Storm Rising", and although it doesn't follow it exactly, much of the scenario driven verbage in the briefing book will be familiar to fans of the novel.
     
    A full explanation of all facets of the mod is included in the 'README first!' file in the zip file. That is the place to start for a full description of the mission pack, as well as information on required and recommended mods needed to play. None of the required mods were altered in any way by me, and all credit and kudos go to the mod authors for their work.
     
    The War Plan Tripwire Briefing Book is included in the zip file in .pdf format. You'll need adobe acrobat reader in order to use the briefing book- I don't expect that will be a big issue for anyone here. The briefing book is what allows you to play a string of 'single missions' as a branching 'campaign,' as well as go beyond the game's often-simplistic definitions of success and failure for various mission types. A full explanation on the use and purpose of the briefing book is included in the WPT README file.
     
    Upcoming projects similar to this one will include a short conflict fought between China and Japan over some territorial rights, and a fictional future conflict involving the US and an Iran deeply in cahoots with the Russians. Enjoy!

  5. SF2_The Final Countdown.7z

    A three 'single mission' pack based on the movie "The Final Countdown." It's one of my Top 5 favorite movies of all time.
     
    The basic requirement for this mod is SF2NA patched to Jul 2013.
     
    See the README file for details on mod requirements and installation instructions, as well as modding credits where due. Access the README file using wordpad to see it in its proper formatting.
     
    Also included is a .pdf file titled "The Final Countdown Mission Brief Book." You'll need adobe acrobat reader in order to access this file. The brief book is in no way required to play this three mission set, but I included it for fun and immersion purposes. If you haven't seen the movie or 'know the story', so to speak, the brief book will bring you up to speed. The narrative in the briefing book provides some perspective on the 'crazy situation' from the deckplate level, so to speak. ;)
     
    The three missions are titled as follows:
     
    101 Splash the Zeroes!
    102 The Great Hawaiian Turkey Shoot
    103 The Battle of Hawaii
     
    The first mission is straight out of the movie. The other two involve the 'alternate ending' we never got to see but really wanted to. For fans of this absolutely iconic movie, the screenshots included will give you some hints as to the content that awaits.
     
    Again, all instructions and the few mod requirements needed are outlined in the README file. Enjoy!
     
    Special shout out to JonathonRL who can be considered the forefather of this mod, and generously gave me permission to alter and use one of his terrain sets. Thanks!

  6. SF2_!991_Operation Nordic Storm.7z

    This is something nobody else may have done before, as far as I know. This is a pack of 30+ single missions designed and written to form a slightly branching campaign experience, with the aid of an included briefing book to guide you through the process. I've been frustrated by SF2's campaign mechanism and wanted to put out a mission pack that tells a bit more story and is a bit more immersive in nature, rather than letting the game's campaign code just generate mission after mission with no real sense of continuity or panache.
     
    The mission pack is basically a more detailed, story-driven version of the campaign you play in SF2NA. This one is based a little more closely on Tom Clancy's "Red Storm Rising", the biggest difference being that the Soviets hold ALL of Iceland, not just part of it. Although it doesn't follow Clancy's novel exactly, many of the scenario driven elements of these missions will be intimately familiar to fans of the book.
     
    A full explanation of all facets of the mod is included in the 'README first!' file in the zip file. That is the place to start for a full description of the mission pack, as well as information on required and recommended mods needed to play. The required mods list is a bit on the heavy side, but totally worth it. None of the required mods were altered in any way by me, and all credit and kudos go to the mod authors for their work.
     
    The Operation Nordic Storm Campaign Briefing Book is included in the zip file, in .pdf format. You'll need adobe acrobat reader in order to use the briefing book- I don't expect that will be a big issue for anyone here. The briefing book is what allows you to play a string of 'single missions' as a branching 'campaign,' as well as go beyond the game's often-simplistic definitions of success and failure for various mission types. A full explanation on the use and purpose of the briefing book is included in the 'README first!' file.
     
    I really enjoyed creating and play-testing this mod, and if it is well received I may do a similar mod based on a circa-2010 fictional conflict against Iran (with some Russian help) in the Persian Gulf. Feedback and bug reports are always welcome. The important thing is to read the README file in its entirety. Use wordpad to access the README file to see it in the proper formatting. Enjoy!
