The Douglas Skyraider A-1H for IL2
4.09 4.10 412 413
READ ME FROM THE MOD
This is the Douglas A_1H skyraider mod for IL2
From Barnesy & Ton @IL2FreeModding

This is an import of the FSX freeware model of the Skyraider A_1H by Tim Piglet Conrad please feel free to drop him a line of thanks for his original model at piglet-ap@dslextreme.com

Obviously the FSX model technically bears no resemblance to the model here as it has been adapted totally for use by IL2 From resizing the original to the addition of many new parts such as landing gear, wheels, canopy, moving parts , pilot , extra details , damage meshes , damage skins , LODs , new LAU & Zuni pods , rockets, Tanks ,re skinning some parts ,textures, new bombs etc
This has taken several hundred hours work and the new model now runs out to over five hundred separate parts in 3D max including hooks, clips ,shadow meshes ,LODs ,Null meshes , damage meshes , caps , and other items required to bring this model into IL2

I have also adapted the cockpit from piglets model using the F4U_A cockpit as a base so while the cockpit looks more or less like the original there are some glaring differences from the historical in the gauge’s layout and flap controls I have also left the F4 trim wheel in the other parts have been adapted to work in piglets cockpit

TON 414 has put considerable work into the all new java work for The Skyraider including New slot , a huge variety of weapons load outs, landing gear travel adjustments ,tail wheel animations, air brake additions, And even a Nuclear weapon for those who don’t like to get too close to the action :lol:
And a great new FM for 4.09 4.10 412.2 and 413.2 game versions made using specs from the original A_1H

I have provided two sets of skins in 2048x2048 original format and 1024x1024 format these skins have been remapped to accommodate the canopy and pylons which are on separate tga’s in the original FSX version and added a small overlay to the canopy labelling to rectify some distortion in the adaptation. The skins remain the original authors and credits to them. There are default skin options in the skins folder. I highly recommend using the 2048x2048 versions to get the best out of the mod the defaults are set at 1024x1024 at delivery

A-1H_Skyraider air.A1HSkyraider 1 usa01 DESERT

Make sure! The mod loads first in your mods folder!! So you get the correct weapons etc then move to where you want in your mods folder after testing! Tested in 412.2 and 413.2
*note I have included presets and samples from my own sound mod version as the plane uses the motor.R-3350-26WA preset if you don’t have it already
