  1. View File NovaLogic Skin Pack NovaLogic Skin Pack September 13th, 2022 (1st Release) by Menrva >For Strike Fighters 2 games This package includes high quality skins representing the player's aircraft from three lite flight simulators released by NovaLogic, namely F-22 Raptor in 1997, F-16 Multirole Fighter and MiG-29 Fulcrum both released in 1998. Below, a summary of the details of each skins: -NL_357CW, for the F-22A Raptor aircraft I released. This skin represents the fictive Raptor Squadron of the 58th TFS, 357th CW (Composite Wing), which took part in military operations in Angola, Jordan, Russia, Colombia and Iran. Serial numbers are realistic, the first being 001 as portrayed on the player's aircraft from NovaLogic's game. -NL_16AESOG, for the F-16C Block 42 aircraft released by The Viper Team. It depicts the fictive Viper Squadron of the 32nd TFS, 16th AESOG (Air Expeditionary Special Operations Group), which took part in military operations in Serbia, Liberia, Congo, Burma and Somalia. I made the skin for the Block 42, since it's reminescent of the one that NovaLogic modelled. Serial numbers are semi-realistic, the first being 112 as portrayed on the player's aircraft from NovaLogic's game. -NL_11EW, for the MiG-29S Fulcrum-C aircraft released by The Mirage Factory. It depicts the fictive 300 Squadron of the 7th Red Banner Guards Regiment, 11th Expeditionary Wing, which took part in military operations in the Kurile Islands, Uganda, Somalia, Burma and Tajikistan. Serial numbers are generic, the aircraft does not have any in NovaLogic's game. >Credits (in no particular order): -The Viper Team, for its detailed F-16 3d models and relative templates. -The Mirage Factory, for its good old MiG-29 3d model. -Sundowner, for the MiG-29 templates he made available. -yakarov79, for his reworked F-22 3d model and relative templates. >Disclaimer: This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages. This mod may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions. Submitter Menrva Submitted 09/12/2022 Category What If Skins

  3. View File F-22A Raptor Add-on F-22A Raptor Add-on October 13th, 2021 (1st Release) by yakarov79, baffmeister, Crusader, guuruu and Menrva >For Strike Fighters 2 games This is a high quality add-on of the F-22A Raptor aircraft. The original model had been made by Heberth, and it was released in alpha stage. Upon noticing room for improvement, yakarov79 helped finalize the 3d model with numerous, additional details; accurate pylons and rail launchers, new external fuel tanks, highly detailed rack and small diameter bomb 3d models, canopy and thrust-vectoring animations, high-res skin with specular and bump maps, updated cockpit model, and so on. A realistic, well-thought flight model has been produced by our expert, baffmeister. Moreover, Crusader offered his great expertise to improve upon his previous modification for the Raptor's avionics. All their efforts have raised the quality bar of the project I had started; much credits to them all. I further polished the package by adding historically accurate weapon loadouts, my selection of sounds (including authentic engine samples by guuruu), realistic camouflage shapes and colours, reworked decals for the actual USAF's F-22A squadrons, new cockpit textures and other tweaks here and there. Each squadron has got historically correct serial numbers, and they appear in chronological order in the loadout screen; the serial numbers at the bottom of the list are those of aircraft that joined that squadron for last, while the serials at the beginning of the list indicate those aircraft that were available to that squadron for first. Like you would expect in an opera omnia, I even reproduced three unique paint schemes of real Raptors; the air superiority camouflage of the EMD 91-4001 Prototype of September 1997, the temporary "Blue Nose" decoration of the "Cripes A'Mighty" Raptor assigned to the 149th Fighter Squadron in April 2010, and a generic Mid-Production livery sporting the markings of the last Raptor ever produced that flew for the first time in March 2012. Templates by yakarov79, tweaked by yours truly, are included for your skinning fantasies. Notes: -The cockpit is not yet accurate, as various details couldn't be reworked due to RL and time constraints. We were working on a brand new cockpit with accurate HUD and displays. Slimers with correct illumination were also planned. Hopefully they will be a thing in a future re-release. -The aircraft folder is named "F-22A", just like the one included in a number of mod packages which use an old 3d model by Dels. In order to avoid mismatches and bugs of any sort, it's highly suggested to either remove or rename the aircraft folder using Dels' Raptor 3d model. -GPS guidance does not work as intended in SF2, as it brings a lot of issues about the avionics, the use of racks and the AI behaviour. This is why the JDAMs have been set as laser guided bombs. Despite this, they seem to work much like GPS guided bombs; without a targeting pod (which the Raptor does lack), you are still able to lock on the primary target of the strike mission, and the bombs can be used only on that target, as it should be. -The AI aircraft usually have issues with guided bombs in SF2, they may not drop them. Strike missions should be accomplished by the players themselves. -You need to tweak the SoundList.ini file in order to fully experience any new sounds. Read "(Add to SoundList)" for further details, and remember to extract the SoundList.ini file from the FlightData.cat archive, if you do not have a custom one in your mod folder already. >Credits (in no particular order): -Heberth, for making this (once forgotten) fantastic 3d model. -Julhelm, for sharing the files of his superb F-22A cockpit 3d model, allowing yakarov79 to improve upon it. -yakarov79, for his invaluable help in finalizing the 3d model and remaking the base textures; you have my gratitude. -baffmeister, for his excellent flight model; it's thanks to him if this beauty flies as good as it looks. -Crusader, for reworking the avionics enhancement made for Julhelm's F-22A cockpit, and for improving the AIM missiles. -guuruu, for sharing his RWR symbols improvement mod and for making better engine sounds. -ravenclaw_007, for the AIM missiles from his top notch Weapons Pack 2, the GBU-32 JDAM bomb and the ACES II seat 3d models. -viper63a, for his old F-22A USAF Raptors Redux package, from which I borrowed decals. -mue, for his LOD Viewer which helped immensely in the making of the skins. -Cocas, for further help given to Heberth for the aircraft's 3d model. -My girlfriend, for supporting me in all of my life's endeavours. Additional ReadMe files by yakarov79 and baffmeister have been included among few others; be sure to read those to know about their work in better detail. >Disclaimer: This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages.

View File F-22A Raptor Skin Pack F-22A Raptor Skin Pack October 13th, 2021 (1st Release) by Menrva >For Strike Fighters 2 games This is an extra skin pack for the high quality F-22A Raptor aircraft add-on. Most skins are based on ideas and depictions from other videogames. Here below a list of the included ones: -YF-22 Paint Scheme (inspired by the real YF-22 prototype) -Sea Raptor Livery (inspired by the F-22N Sea Raptor concept) -Saudi Grey Camouflage (as depicted in Digital Image Design's F-22 Total Air War) -Egyptian Woodland Camouflage (as depicted in Digital Image Design's F-22 Total Air War) -USAF Pac West Camouflage (as depicted in Digital Image Design's F-22 Total Air War) -Desert Lightning Camouflage (as depicted in NovaLogic's F-22 Lightning 3) -Phoenix Livery (from Namco Hometek's Air Combat, as depicted in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown) -Phoenix Livery, Dark (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat Infinity) -Scarface One Livery (as depicted in Namco Hometek's Ace Combat 2) -Z.O.E., Red Livery (from Namco Hometek's Ace Combat 2, as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat Infinity) -Mobius One, ISAF Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies) -Abell, Black Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies) -Razgriz Livery (from Project Aces' Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation) -Pegas, 3-Tone Blue Camouflage (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation) -Indigo Wing Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation) -Gryphus One Livery (from Access Games' Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception, as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat Infinity) -Warwolf Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat: Assault Horizon) -Mobius One, IUN Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown) -Trigger Livery (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown) -JASDF 2-Tone Blue Camouflage (as depicted in Project Aces' Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown) As a bonus, different aircraft configuration files are included in the "(Alternative Data)" folder. You'll be able to choose between realistic loadouts (default configuration of the aircraft add-on package) and what-if loadouts inspired by the mentioned F-22 videogames of the late 90s, namely weapons included in F-22 Lightning 3. Both configurations are also available with the addition of invisible skids; those will allow you to perform belly landings, which are a feature of good old F-22 Total Air War. Notes: -The B61 tactical nuclear bomb is a retarded version, but drop it safely from high altitude at high speed. Take note that it does not damage the stock Runway object, due to the armor values of it. The B61 is meant to be used against naval fleets you may encounter on some custom terrains. -You need to tweak the SoundList.ini file in order to fully experience any new sounds.

View File NovaLogic Terrains NovaLogic Terrains July 13th, 2021 (1st Release) by Menrva and gerwin >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged This package was born after the discovery of similarities between the terrain engine of Strike Fighters and that of NovaLogic's flight sims from the late nineties. Upon my initial idea, gerwin helped make it true with his incredible programming skills; without him, these terrains wouldn't even exist for use on Strike Fighters. This package features not one, not two, but all thirteen terrains converted from all NovaLogic's flight sims. Due to differences between game engines, these terrains are smaller in scale in Strike Fighters compared to how they are in NovaLogic's games. Here below a summary of what's included: NL01_IslandGreen (Region: Meadow) from F-22 Lightning II NL02_IslandSnowy (Region: Tundra) from F-22 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor NL03_Desert1 (Region: Arid) from F-22 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor NL04_Jungle1 (Region: Forest) from F-22 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor NL04_Jungle2 (Region: Jungle) from F-16 Multirole Fighter and MiG-29 Fulcrum NL05_Savannah1 (Region: Woodland) from F-22 Raptor NL05_Savannah2 (Region: Savanna) from F-16 Multirole Fighter, MiG-29 Fulcrum and F-22 Lightning 3 NL06_Desert2A (Region: Brush) from F-22 Raptor NL06_Desert2B (Region: Desert) from F-16 Multirole Fighter and MiG-29 Fulcrum NL07_Steppe (Region: Steppe) from F-16 Multirole Fighter and MiG-29 Fulcrum NL08_Scrub (Region: Scrub) from F-16 Multirole Fighter, MiG-29 Fulcrum and F-22 Lightning 3 NL09_Glacial (Region: Glacial) from F-16 Multirole Fighter, MiG-29 Fulcrum and F-22 Lightning 3 NL10_IslandJungle (Region: Tropical) from F-22 Lightning 3 These terrains feature 500m resolution heightmaps and original low-res tilesets (tweaked for the Strike Fighters engine). Each terrain is meant to represent a generic region of the world. Nations are properly limited to ones coherent with each setting, and island terrains enable the use of naval fleets and aircraft carriers. As such, these terrains are meant to be used in a full-5 merged mod folder of all SF2 titles. At this stage very few target areas have been added to each terrain, providing basic support for all mission types, so just enjoy quick missions against the enemy; hopefully these terrains will be completed with more details one day. About development, gerwin took care of reverse engineering NovaLogic's files and converting them to SF2 format, plus writing the tools for that. Me and him manually fixed most water alpha channels and adjusted colors in few tiles. Design choices such as target areas, routes, terrain height and surroundings, are mine; if you have any suggestions about this package, contact me. >Credits (in no particular order): -gerwin, for converting these terrains to the Strike Fighters game engine and for expanding his awesome tools with new features. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too. -Wrench, for permission to upload this package which is based on outdated assets from old games. >Disclaimer: This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages. Any changes to the package's files and/or any copy-and-paste attempts of their contents are NOT authorized if you plan to release them in other mods.

  9. F-22 - Worth It?

    I think everyone can agree the F-22 is one of the greatest leaps in aircraft design texhnology. Combining stealth and agility and situational awareness all into one package. However, that's all very well and good, but did we need it? The F-22 was concieved through the ATF program, which was at the response of a hypothetical Russian super-fighter. (From what I've heard) Of course, this never came to be. Plus, soon after, the Soviet Union collapsed, and the threat of a new super-fighter gone with it. So the F-22 was still evaluated and built anyway. But its purpose was gone. Although Russia is now working on the PAK-FA, they're not so much a volatile country as they used to be. (They're actually quite poor relative to USA.) They're probably just working on a fighter to defend their own country with. Today, North Korea is the big worry, especially after a few days ago, after they threatened the US with force after B-52's were discovered near Korean airspace. Although N. Korea's nuclear capabilities are unquestionable, their air force is something else. It consists mainly of MIG-21's and -23's, and a few -29's. Even our F-15's and F-16's could take them. All I'm saying is, is that does the US need that firepower? Its a little bit overkill in my opinion. It's also cost the tax payer millions of dollars, for an aircraft that in the eight years its been in service, the closest its ever been to combat is escorting a TU-95 away from American Airspace. (F-4' were soing that in the 70's, I mean come on.) Not to mention, the US has had plenty of oppertunities to showcase its combat capability in many recent conflicts, such as the 2011 Libyan campaign, which brings into question why they're so shy about bringing out their big toys to play. Its probably had more use in its use in airshows and license for use in Video Games than in actual combat. In today's world, maybe it would have been more economical to produce the F-22 in smaller numbers, (If they're so good anyway, why do we need 187 of them?), and followed up with the F-35 as top priority. (If they hadn't of cocked it up so much.) Please post your opinions. :)
