This texture pack adds a host of options for the F-2A, that will Campaign Convert the aircraft with a full set of Mage, Spare and Strider High Visibility markings in the same scale and positions as the default F-2A textures, as well as Erusean markings.
Please note - If you wish to use the Campaign Pack textures for slots 4, 5 and 6, it is *highly* recommended to also install the MREC compatability pak that will move the Plain Erusean textures from Slot 2 into Slot 1.
An additional optional pak is included that will make the plain Osean texture available in slot 2, allowing these skins to basically just be swapped in position if you want, but not interfering if you have already (or will want to in the future) replace slot 2 with some other livery.
Using "F-2A Skin 2 into Skin 1 MREC Compat_P.pak" (or "F-2A S2 Erusea 501 Skin 1_P.pak") will maximise MREC Accuracy, as Mage, Spare and Strider all use the same MREC texture as Skin1/Osea.
If you replace just skins 4, 5, 6, without also replacing skin 1, you may see minor visual errors on those 3 aircraft.
Hopefully in the future, when the process of using instance files to allow ALL texture slots to use a unqiue MREC, becomes more automated, this archive can be updated in a far more streamlined manner.For now, my compromise to offer you more flexibilty in what you want to use, or not, is to provide a large variety of pak files.
All of these pak files use the "_P" suffix as a precaution. Although it is not currently required for this to be part of the file name as of September 2019, if Project Aces update the base F-2A external textures in a future DLC or update, the "_P" will become required.
This download is large and the number of files might seem complex, but I hope the flexibility it offers in picking and choosing what you want to use is worth it.
The archive contains 20 pak files.
1. Navigate to the Ace Combat 7 installation directory and go to Game\Content\Paks\~mods (If the "~mods" folder does not exist, create it.)
2. Paste the desired .pak file(s) into the "~mods" folder.
3. Launch the game and select the skin that the installed .pak has replaced.
