Battlefield 1942

takiwa's WWII Planes pt 1 - Japan

Description:

[quote]File Description: - This is the first part in a series I am doing on historically accurate plane skins for Battlefield 1942. This one covers the aircraft used by the Japanese,
Show All
1941-1945. Historical Notes: - All planes now have the correct 3-blade prop blur. - Both the Midway and Wake maps use the same planes. These are A6M2's and D3A1's based off the carrier Hiryu, which took part in both of those offensives. They are generic planes, belonging to no pilot in particular, and therefore bear no pilot-specific markings. The numbers are also generic, but based on a number pattern of the carrier group. - Coral Sea uses A6M2's and D3A1's based off the carrier Shokaku, which took part in this offensive and was sunk during the battle. They are generic planes, belonging to no pilot in particular, and therefore bear no pilot-specific markings. The numbers are also generic, but based on a number pattern of the carrier group. - Coral Sea also features the Shokaku re-skinned in a historically correct color (from several possible color schemes). This is based on my previous Shokaku skin, with more detail put into the deck planks and the door marker text changed. The deck was steel on the real Shokaku, but due to the way the textures are used, I decided to keep the wooden planks. - Guadal Canal features raiding A6M2's from the base at Rabaul (some 600 miles away), and D3A1's from the carrier Zuikaku, which patroled the waters around the Solomon Islands at this time. They are generic planes, belonging to no pilot in particular, and therefore bear no pilot-specific markings. The numbers are also generic, but based on a number pattern of the carrier group. - Iwo Jima features a land-based Nakajima A6M2, and a land-based D3A1, both with the correct color schemes for the time period. They are generic planes, belonging to no pilot in particular, and therefore bear no pilot-specific markings. The numbers are also generic, but based on a number pattern of the carrier group. Skinning Notes: - There were problems with the mirroring effect on most of this planes (especially with the tail numbers). - Some of the markings are not sized correctly (like stripes and fusalage identification markings) because of the restraints of the skin and model. - Dice set the D3A1 up to use the prop blur of the A6M2, so the spinner looks different when flying in 3rd person view (nothing I can do about this...) - I decide not to include the wrecked .dds files to make the file smaller in size. Wrecked planes only stay active on the screen for a few seconds, anyway, and the level of detail is hard to see, so the default files do the job just fine. - I researched these planes tirelessly over the past days, and the color schemes, numbering system, etc. that I used came from so many different websites, I can't list them all here. I hope I have represented each plane in a historical light...if not, I apologize. Installation: - You MUST have Merciless Creations 3.7 or later to use this file! - Click on the file to start the extraction, which will place the skins in their proper map folders. If you have your Battlefield 1942 game installed somwhere other than the default location, then point the extractor in the right direction (default is "C:Program FilesEA GAMESBattlefield 1942TextureSetsBF1942"). Overwrite any files when asked. - Enjoy the game! takiwa [/quote]
