I've been kicked off of Facebook for making "conservative" comments. Glad this place isn't fakebook.

I made a few adjustments to the Kuril 2018 campaign since its release; mainly moving the Japanese airport to the south slightly. Secondly, made a small change to the playset, but left it labeled v2.2. Lastly, a few of the Kuril 2018 missions made it to the single missions collection.

I played the 2018 Kuril campaign again, this time using the AV-8 as much as possible. I was still able to successfully complete the majority of the missions using the Harrier, though the tactics and weapons used were somewhat different than when using the F-35.

I wrote a tutorial on making weapon icons with Transparency. I'm sure there are easier ways, but this is how I do it.

Update: May 22, 2020

- Yankee Station 1964 and Yankee Station 1972 campaigns have been upgraded to USNRaptor Playset v 2.2 standards. The A-7A (A7V.PT) has been corrected with the proper guns; this plane was just added to the current playset (v 2.2).

- The DC3.PT had recently been retired from the playset, causing problems in several various campaign missions. Those problems are now fixed (as of May 22, 2020).

- Slow work in progress on modifying the Korean Map and making a scenery list. The NSK.MM file can be found in the 'Maps' ftp folder. Some default Quick Missions may not play correctly with the new map, since some airports have been created/ moved/ deleted to more represent real existing airports.

Update: May 24, 2020

- Now Available, the Music of Fighters Anthology in .WAV format. The zip file includes only the music from libs FA_4B and FA_4D, which is unavailable from the FA Toolkit. The FA_MUSIC.ZIP file can be found in the Music folder in the ftp.

- USNRaptor Playset v 2.3 is now available. The main change is a new F-84G Thunderjet, using the straight wing shape & pic supplied by the JKPFA lib. Also from JKPFA lib is the blue paint scheme for the Japanese F-2. The B52.PT file has had its ordnance load adjusted. Several aircraft were removed from the "flyable" menu, but don't worry, you can still fly them.

- The Baltics 1976 campaign has been updated to the current playset (v 2.3). Some single missions have been modified and many mission briefing (.MT) files have been reformatted to meet a modern standard. The Campaign.zip file has been updated to reflect these changes, as well as the individual zip files found in the FTP.

-------------------------------------
I started with the A-37 flight manual, and made adjustments to mostly altitude and top speed. According to the pilot manual, The F-84Gs top speed is 0.82 Mach. For every g pulled, 5 mph was subtracted (if I read the manual correctly).

If anyone has a copy of the F-84F , I'd appreciate a copy e-mailed to me.

Enjoy!
