    ALPHA Halifax C8 + Halton UT.zip


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Aircraft - British

    Description: ALPHA Halifax C8 & Halton for CFS2 by UncleTgt

    This is an update of the conversion of the Alphasim Halifax C8 & Halton done by Shessi. It is uploaded as a complete aircraft for ease of install.

    Any crashcheck or g_lightstate entries in the model have been removed, so it can be flown in Freeflight or Quick Combat. A new airfile was developed for CFS2, as was a new DP file. The .dp file uses kelticheart exhaust effects. Payloads included are various cargo options using the FDG C-47 cargo weapons, & they are not visible, they are simply there to affect aircraft handling.

    The 2D panel has been made WIN7+ safe.

    The passenger door opens with the normal cockpit open/close command.

    The textures included are: Halifax CVIII

    GR - A, PP332 of 301 squadron RAF, circa 1946. Painted in the camo over Azure Blue Transport Command scheme from the immediate post war period, & provided with a dulled down mdl.

    G-AIAR of British American Air Services, from the time frame of the Berlin Airlift, 1949.

    G-AIHY of Lancashire Air Corporation, again from the time frame of the Berlin Airlift, 1949.

    Halton: Three different schemes for the same aircraft, G-AHDM

    G-AHDM "Falmouth" of BOAC circa 1947.

    G-AHDM of Westminster Airways in 1949.

    G-AHDM of WEstminster Airways just prior to their demise in 1950.

    To install, unzip the download to a temporary location & move/ copy files to the matching folder names inside your chosen CFS2 install.

    Thanks to: Shessi for the original conversion, & Alphasim for the original aircraft.

    Allen for his DOSmdlc_2, making shine & mdl size changes possible in WIN7+.

    Martin Wright for so many useful tools, in this case in particular MDLmat allowing aircraft model material transparency & colour changes.

    Kelticheart for his prop bitmaps & exhaust effects.

    This is freeware and subject to the usual conditions.

    Small note: as Shessi & others before me have found out, the cowl flap animation didn't make through the conversion process.

    ALPHA Halifax BIII UT.zip


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Aircraft - British

    Description: ALPHA Halifax BIII for CFS2 by UncleTgt

    This is an update of the conversion of the Alphasim Halifax BIII done by Shessi & separately by Peperez. It is uploaded as a complete aircraft for ease of install.

    Any crashcheck or g_lightstate entries in the model have been removed, so it can be flown in Freeflight or Quick Combat. A new airfile was developed for CFS2, as was a new DP file. The dp file uses kelticheart exhaust effects.

    The 2D panel & Bombsight has been made WIN7+ safe. Peperez' gunner view bitmaps have been similarly made WIN 7+ safe, but not included in the panel.cfg

    The crew door opens with the normal cockpit open/close command, bomb bay doors with the Spoiler key (D). Unfortunately the cowl flaps animation didn't make it.

    The new dp file required some creative thinking, as RAF Hallybags almost always carried payloads almost entirely consisting of Incendiaries. I adapted Shessi's 4000lb Cookie to make it's slim-line cousin, the 2000lb Cookie. I similarly adapted Allen's M10 Rocket weapon (because it was multi-LOD) & using alpha channels was able to give a poor facsimile of how a load of 4lb incendiaries might appear just after release. Until something better comes along , it's the best I could come up with! The payloads reflect typical "standardized" RAF Bomber Command load-outs for 1943 onward.

    This time just a single texture is included: LW430 C8 - T "Tommy the Tourist" of 640 squadron RAF, Leconfield, 24th March 1944.

    Some research material about this aircraft is included in this upload. Those who know me will understand why I felt compelled to depict this particular aircraft.

    To install, unzip the download to a temporary location & move/ copy files to the matching folder names inside your chosen CFS 2 install.

    Thanks to: Shessi for the original conversion, & Alphasim for the original aircraft.

    Peperez for his conversion & modelling of the other variants with his airfiles.

    Allen for his DOSmdlc_2, making shine & mdl size changes possible in WIN7+.

    Arno Gerretsen for ModelconverterX, such a clever & versatile tool.

    Robert John for his CFS2 Exploding Objects tutorial.

    Shessi & Allen for allowing me to butcher & adapt their weapons to create some new ones.

    Martin Wright for so many useful tools, in this case in particular MDLmat allowing aircraft model material transparency & colour changes.

    Description: ALPHA Halifax BVI for CFS2 by UncleTgt

    This is my impression of the Halifax BVI based on the Alphasim Halifax BIII.

    These provide new airfile, dp file & textures to use with a copy of ALPHA_Halifax_BIII_UT.

    The BVI used Hercules 100 engines & had a pressurised fuel system. It was in service from late '44 onwards.

    The options provided for are: RG481 DY - O of 102 squadron RAF circa December '44.

    RG610 DY - K of 102 squadron RAF circa October '45.

    PN167 L8 - Z "Miquette" of 347 (french) squadron RAF flying from Elvington circa January 1945.

    RG588 C8 - S of 640 squadron RAF flying from Leconfield circa March '45.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Skins - British

    Description: ALPHA Halifax BVII for CFS2 by UncleTgt

    This is my impression of the Halifax BVII based on the Alphasim Halifax BIII.

    These provide new airfile, dp file & textures to use with a copy of ALPHA_Halifax_BIII_UT.

    The BVII reverted to using Hercules XVI engines due to problems delivering Hercules 100 engines for the Mk BVI. It was used almost exclusively by the Canadian squadrons of 6 Group Bomber Command & was in service from July '44 onward.

    The options provided for are: NP714 EQ - V 408 squadron RCAF circa August '44.

    NP689 QO - M "Moonlight Mermaid" 432 squadron RCAF flying from East Moor, circa July '44. 7 mission stars applied.

    NP689 QO - M "Moonlight Mermaid" 432 squadron RCAF flying from East Moor, circa March '45. 80 mission stars applied, this is how she would have looked on her last mission when she was lost 15th March '45

    ALPHA latewar Coastal Command Halifaxes UT.zip


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Skins - British

    Description: ALPHA Coastal Command (latewar) Halifax for CFS2 by UncleTgt

    This is an collection of Coastal Command Halifax based on the Alphasim Halifax BIII.

    These provide new airfile, dp file & textures to use with a copy of ALPHA_Halifax_BIII_UT.

    Radial engined Halifaxes were late to the party for Coastal Command. Most of their activity seems to be from late '44 onwards, by which time the Battle of the Atlantic & Biscay campaigns had been long decided. Their actions seem to be limited to Meterological flights & night-time anti-ship strikes across the Kattegat.

    The options provided for are: Halifax GRIII (dp file optimized for ship attacks)

    PN402 V9 - X of 502 squadron 18 Group RAF, early April 1945. In standard Heavy Bomber camo. This aircraft believed shot down by nightfighters 9/10 April '45

    Halifax GRIIIa (dp file optimised for LR anti-sub ops)

    I've failed to find any evidence of GRIIIs in Grey over White camo, so a plain repaint is provided for use as a placeholder.

    Halifax MetIII (dp file reflecting VLR meterological flights)

    PN396 Y3 - W of 518 squadron RAF circa May '45

    Halifax MetVI (dp file reflecting VLR meterological flights)

    RG873 Y3 - P of 202 squadron RAF circa September '46

    Wonderful work. What a Herculean output! Thanks Uncle!!

    Hi John,
    What a great selection! (glad you did a CC version!), fantastic, love a Hallibag and these add a lot of choices. Thank you.

    Actually the cooling gills weren't animated on the original Fs2004 version, which is strange as they are individually modelled. I think someone forgot or couldn't be bothered..ha ha!

    Cheers

    Hi Guys,

    I am sure the following tidbit is old news to most, but I had never messed around with these BIII birds before so I had never noticed.

    Its just a little oddity with the way the exhaust pipes are mounted on these Halifax radial engines.

    On the port wing, the exhaust pipe on the outboard engine is mounted on the outboard side. On inboard engine, it is on the inboard side.

    On the starboard wing, both engines have the exhaust pipes installed on the outboard side.

    I "googled" on it and apparently it just a little quirk in the way the BIII Halifax is constructed. Not quite clear about it.

    Now I ask ya, is that fascinating or what? ;^)

    Cheers,
    MR

    PS: Just out of curiosity I went and had a look at the Halton models. Interestingly, the exhaust pipes are mounted the same on both wings. However, they both face each other. The outboard engine exhaust is mounted inboard and the inboard engine exhaust is mounted outboard.

    Yes, I do seem tom have way too much time on my hands.

    MR

    Maybe there were more left-handed than right-handed exhaust manifolds made? Just kidding. I'm sure there was a reason, but that one is a tough nut to crack.

    On another note, I had to bring her out in the sunlight. A lot of hours went into this.

    Thanks Uncle!

    Chris & Dave,

    Thanks for the gorgeous screen grabs, they really do show her off well. Rami, Ravenna, Stuart 277 & Shessi etc, thanks for the kind comments.

    Shessi, would be nice to have: - multi-LOD, model options showing rounded wingtips, H2S or no H2S, ventral gun (especially RCAF birds), & change in fuselage modelling to better detail the nose art (again, especially the RCAF birds). Maybe fuselage split into front & rear halves like the stockers?

    Sgt John Charles Burdett

    I came across this story quite by accident a few years ago. My family surname is quite rare, so to come across the news story of "Tommy the Tourist" & find the W/Op gunner was my namesake struck a chord. I decided at some point I should commemorate this crew in some small way, especially important to me as these stories pass from living memory, almost un-noticed, which I find uncomfortable.

    Serving in RAF Bomber Command during WW2 was no picnic, & these guys often did not get the post-war recognition they deserved (an uncomfortable truth).

    This view was reinforced as I researched some repaints & came across some excellent RCAF web resources, with detailed aircraft histories. "Moonlight Mermaid" is especially poignant, as it carried crews into battle for 80 missions, only to be cut down on it's 81st mission close to the end of the war.
    See here for lots of detail https://clarencesimonsen745590793.fi...ht-mermaid.pdf

    Back to the RAF birds, nobody seemed to have depicted the "ton-Up" Hallybags, or the single VC Halifax, so they were easy choices. The Coastal Command night war against the Norway-Denmark surface vessel traffic during 1945 likewise was another enlightening find, & this with the weather recon casualties provided some unusual repaint subject matter, again by way of commemoration.

    I'm glad you enjoyed these uploads.

    Hiya Guys,

    Well, what with this latest release by UncleTgt I was forced to go through all of my old Halifax files and get them in some sort of order.

    First by consolidating them all into one Halifaxes folder in my download folder and then systematizing what and in what order information shows up in the ac.cfg files and thereby in the AC drop down list.

    Actually it got pretty involved and I ha some real fun tracking down information about the individual AC based upon the oft times very sketchy information included in the readme files!

    But going a lot by the model numbers and serial numbers showing in the texture files I was able to track down some pretty useful information about most of these AC. Found a couple of useful webites, too.

    Any way, In case anyone is interested here is a list of all the Halifaxes I have installed either in my AIRCRAFT folder or else sitting in my Halifax Hangar.

    There are a ton of them! I break out all of the multiple cfg file entries into their own separate aircraft folders then alias all of the sounds and panels to external folders.

    Here is a list of the 41 I have (KEY: AFS = AF Scrubbs; AO = ALPHASim Oldies; SH = Shessi; ALPHA-PRZ = ALPHASim-Peperez; Alpha-SC = ALPHASim-SopwithChameleon; ALPHA-UT = ALPHASim-UncleTgt.)

    I'm having some trouble adding the B.VI Halifaxes. I've opened the zip, made a new folder for each aircraft, extracted the Aircraft.cfg from the texture folder and added the common files to each aircraft folder, as well as adding the sound and panel folders from the ALPHA Halifax BIII UT download. My problem is that I have been looking for the model files. What am I getting wrong here? I had always assumed that the model name matched the sim= (name).

    Hiya Ravenna

    I believe the key to the conundrum is this sentence from UT's readme for the BVI:

    This is my impression of the Halifax BVI based on the Alphasim Halifax BIII.
    Pretty sure he uses the model from the ALPHA_Halifax_BIII_UT pack as the model. That's what I used anyway.

    I have no idea whether this is true or not.

    Maskrider is correct.

    IIRC the only .MDL filenames that need to match the sim= (name) are SHIP models - who knows why

    Maskrider

    Some of my repaints are duplicates/ re-imaginings of Pepe's etc., so there are some duplicates in amongst that list.

    Still, 41 Hallybags is almost Team Daedelus territory ...
