Hi Dimlee,

C.U.P. users can install the F7F Tigercat in any module's folder of their choice.
In your case for WAW it would be the #WAW folder.

I have just tried this and it works flawlessly.
If it doesn't work for you, please post your logfile contents.
See here: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13457.0.html
for further details about how to get your logfile contents.

Best regards - Mike

Thank you, Mike.
I have tried again and paid more attention. It does work fine now.

Sexy plane with interesting FM. I feel like flying hybride of my two favorites: P-38 and FW-190.

This kitty has some sharp teeth, and a great flight model as well.

Thanks to everyone that made this long awaited aircraft come to IL-2

Is F7F the best piston engined fighter in IL2 universe?
I have a lot fun fighting La-7 aces offline. 1 vs 2 not a problem. 1 vs 4 is hard but manageable.
I wonder how she would stand against La-9.

The best? Depends on the mission I suppose. Most fun? In my opinion...YES!

Well, I can hardly imagine the mission where she will not excel, unless jets are on the same map. Interception (of everything, incl Tu-4/B-29), dogfight, straffing... So fast at any altitude and ROC is surprisingly high.

any news on a template, UVW unwrap or such? anything to help a poor skinner....   :)
i guess i can start building a template from scratch - seems the only thing this plane is missing is some nice skins. :D

Hopefully, this plane will be included in one of CUP releases? It's not there yet.

For me P-38s, P-51s and FW-190A-3-9 atm for props. :D

Great FM in this version Mike.

I have a request for any cockpit capable modder or IL-2 fan, also to the creator(s) of this mod, if you drop by ;):
I try for private fun to add a vivid canopy reflection into the pit, for the sake of my balls I cannot identify the texture responsible for the dark tint inside the pit. I tried exchanging a few, even adding new values to the respective mats, to no joy...any tip welcomed!

Cheers


Tom

PS
This is weird, I am a complete dumbass as modder :D, but usually when I KNOW there is a canopy effect like tint, darkness etc, I can find it..

Edit: The reason I take it Barnesy12 or whoever made the initial cockpit added a tint is that there is a subtle but noticable difference when watching the landscape outside and back in the pit, same when the canopy is moved into the slide open posit.

Would love to add that and a mirror to this plane.
