  1. File Name: SF2 Scooters! - Redux - a rework of all my earlier Single Skin Releases for TW A-4 File Submitter: Nyghtfall File Submitted: 06 July 2015 File Category: A-4 Scooters! - Redux - a rework of all my Single-Skin-Releases for Thirdwire A-4 Skyhawks ==================================================================================== *** SF2V required. Tested in full 5-merged installation *** For this pack I redid all my previous single-skin releases, brought them on the same level with the Scooters Vol.1 pack and rearranged them. I also corrected several errors from the older versions. Former VA-153-Skin with optional Coral Sea Marking is split into 2 separate skins for Coral Sea and Constellation now. Some skins are done for different plane-variants to reflect upgrades. So this Pack includes: - VA-93 Blue Blazers, USS Hancock, 1/1967 to 7/1967 for A-4E_65 - VA-153 Blue Tail Flies, USS Constellation, 5/1966 to 12/1966 for A-4C_65 - VA-153 Blue Tail Flies, USS Coral Sea, 12/1964 to 11/1965 for A-4C and A-4C_65 - VA-163 Saints, USS Oriskany, 6/1967 to 1/1968 for A-4E_65 - VA-164 Ghost Riders, USS Oriskany, 6/1967 to 1/1968 for A-4E-65 - VA-164 Ghost Riders, USS Hancock, 1/1972 to 10/1972 for A-4F and A-4F_LST - VA-172 Blue Bolts, USS F.D. Roosevelt, 6/1966 to 2/1967 for A-4C-65 - VA-192 Golden Dragons, USS Ticonderoga, 10/1966 to 5/1967 for A-4E_65 and A-4E_67 Updates include: - Added Weathering, that most early skins missed. - Insignia and several squadronspecific markings are painted on. - Many decals are redone and optimised (more blur for less flickering) - Corrected several errors in the baseskin, aswell as for the markings. - Added modexnumbers to the flap insides (possible with mue's great LOD-Viewer - Thanks mate!) - Updated cockpit with working Landing Gear- and Arresting Hook Lever - Included Hangarscreens for each skin in 1920x1080 as default and 1024x768 optional. Notes and Issues: ================= As there's no possibility of squadrons with mixed plane-variants, some skins are available for 2 plane-variants. At some point A-4C and A-4E got ECM-equipment and I'm pretty sure, those were used besides planes without ECM in squadrons. The other case are A-4E, that got the avionics hump at some point and were used besides ones without hump. I hope you have fun with it! Sources ======= - Scooter!

  3. File Name: SF2 A-4F VA-164 'Ghost Riders' 1973 File Submitter: Nyghtfall File Submitted: 02 January 2015 File Category: A-4 A-4F Skyhawk, VA-164 'Ghost Riders' Vietnam 1973 Skinpack *** SF2V required for A-4F-model, tested in full 5-merged installation *** The skin represents A-4Fs from VA-164 'Ghost Riders' in 1973 aboard the carrier USS Hancock in Vietnam. All BuNo are correct for this squadron, but unfortunately I couldn't find the correct assignment for all modex to BuNo. This pack contains another version of "Lady Jessie", this time the wellknown version with big letters on the fuselage. In 1973 VA-164 was on another combat-cruise in Vietnam. Carrier Air Wing CVW-21, which VA-164 was part of, was tasked with the responsibility, to develop expertise in unique mission types. For example VA-55 was tasked with Iron Hand missions, while VA-164 was to develop tactics to use Laser Guided Weapons at its best. Some A-4F were equipped with Laser Spot Trackers instead of the ususal Radar in the nose, so that LGBs could be used on designated targets. As these were only trackers, a special Designator was needed. For that case, 2 TA-4F were borrowed from USMC squadrons. A 2nd crewmember with a handheld-device to designate the targets was placed on the 2nd seat. Those people were volunteers from other squadrons, that usually flew E-1B or RF-8/F-8. As the handheld-device had to be held steady for a proper designation while the plane was flying, it was a not well-like job to do. But in the end, it proved successful and led to the development of build-in laserdesignators. The pack consists of 2 parts: - a skin for the stock A-4F, which cannot use laser-guided bombs (LGB). So this is only for the looks. Select the skin in the loadout-screen of the stock A-4F. - a modification of the stock A-4F to use LGB. Ingame you will find a new plane - "A-4F (Laser Spot Tracker)" to choose. It also has a different gunsight and shows laser designated targets. For the laser-designator you have 2 options. First is to use the plane as is, meaning, you only can use LGBs on primary targets as they're always designated. The radarscreen is just black in that case, because the planes didnt have a radar anymore. Second, you use the Laser designator from the loadout screen and can use LGBs on every target. I included a modified AVQ-23 (modded from the stock one) for that purpose. It is not shown externally and is a compromise for playability-reasons. The radar-screen shows the target if you have selected one. Planes marked with * are the LST-equipped ones (401, 407, 411, 413, 414), which have the different nosecone. 401 and 407 are confirmed by pictures, the other 3 are in for a good mix. There were more than 2 of them, but I couldn't find more numbers or other pictures. Installation ============ 1. unzip to a temporary folder 2. open "Put_In_Your_Mod folder" and do as you were told, if asked to overwrite, say 'yes' :P 3. enjoy!

  5. File Name: SF2 A-4E(65) VA-93 'Blue Blazers' 1967 File Submitter: Nyghtfall File Submitted: 08 October 2014 File Category: A-4 A-4E (65) Skyhawk, VA-93 'Blue Blazers' Vietnam 1967 Skinpack by Nyghtfall v1.1 =============================================================================== *** SF2V required for A-4E_65-model, tested in full 5-merged installation *** The skin represents A-4Es from VA-93 'Blue Blazers' in the first half of 1967 aboard the carrier USS Hancock in Vietnam. BuNo are correct for this squadron, but unfortunately I couldn't find the correct assignment for all modex to BuNo. The following ones are correct and confirmed by pictures or shotdownlists: 300 (152022), 301 (151049), 302 (151106), 303 (151070), 306 (151038), 310 (151082), 311 (151076), 313 (151105) All others are filled with BuNo that are correct for the timeframe and squadron, but miss an assignment to a specific modex. If someone has more information, please contact me for an update. One rare fact is, that some planes of VA-93 still wore the A-4C marking pattern (Insignia on front, 4-digit BuNo on tail, Navy on airbrakes) which was changed with the transition from A-4C to A-4E. According to my sources 301, 303 and 313 are confirmed for the old scheme. I added 308 and 312 for a good mix. Some highlights on this skinpack are: - new Baseskin with highter resolution (2048x2048) - new Decals for nearly everything :) - 2 Marking styles (Markings like A-4E for 300-315 except for 301,303,308,312 and 313, which wear the A-4C-scheme) - special Decals for the CAG bird (Number x00) - updated data.ini is included, which contains the working canopy (SHIFT+0) and landing light (thanks to Wrench).
