-Strike Fighters 1+2-

Programs and other things I made for the Strike Fighters series of flight simulators/games. All put here for anyone who has good use for it. See Combat Ace for news, discussions and downloads related to these games.

HFD/TFD ICELAND Terrain for Strike Fighters 2 North Atlantic

Remake of the Stock Direct-X 10 Lod based terrain, but in the classic HFD/TFD format.
- A natural looking texture tileset, being a blend of ThirdWire's, gerwin/GB's and Stary's work.
- Gives High framerates and requires only a short loading time.
- Better low altitude radar evasion behaviour compared to the stock terrain.
- Shorelines and Lakes.
- Towns, millions of trees and even geysers (last two are made by Stary).
- As the target locations are unchanged, the campaign remains 100% functional.
- Seemingly windows XP compatible with a merged install.
- Works with any Strike Fighters Game; Wings over Vietnam, Europe, Isreal etc.
- Includes some toned-down textures for the SF2NA Iceland buildings and trees.
- Update 03-2024: City tiles with TOD building objects - Update 03-2024: Expanded standalone install, with harbor targets etc. Comments or suggestions: Topic at Combat Ace

Microprose Falcon 4 Korea terrain

A terrain conversion from the famous 1998 flight simulation. It depicts North and South Korea, with the DMZ as a separation. Comes with the classic tile set, but enhanced for the features of Strike Fighters, such as tile rotation and water reflection.

Novalogic Terrain Conversions for Strike Fighters 2

Other versions of these terrains were already available in this set Here at Combat Ace, as uploaded by Menrva who worked on these terrains with me.
But I was stubborn? and made different choices regarding terrain heigth scaling and the filling of the areas bordering the center terrain.
Next I improved and added some targetareas, also added some tailor-made tiles and TODs for these targetareas.

TFDtool Terrain Explorer

Last Update: 09-2023
This tool will allow you to explore most aspects of terrains for the Third Wire Productions "Strike Fighters" flight simulator series.
- The TileMap with textures.
- The HeightMap.
- The Targets placement, with stock airfield preview images. (no direct editing)
- The Movement Routes. (no direct editing)
Allows zoom levels ranging 1 pixel per tile to 1024 pixels per tile, and generation of game-ready planning maps and water maps.
To get going with this you need to use either Catpack or the Third-Wire cat extractor, and convert any extracted unicode textfiles to simple ANSI format.

Drag and drop ground vehicle addons for SF. All models are setup to move and fire. They will appear in either a Green or a Tan texture, depending on the terrain. The models are framerate friendly and have several 'distance lods'.

CATpack archiver

A Strike Fighters .cat archive extractor and packer. There used to be skypats extractor for SF1, then this Catpack tool which for a while was the only one able to unpack SF2 archives. It unfortunately cannot extract the new cat format introduced in march 2011. The game publisher offers its own extractor now, which can extract most of the files, although some files remain locked on purpose.

Various smaller SF modifications by me

All hosted on CombatAce, which is much appreciated. The mods are listed in order of date, with the most recent projects first. Beware that some things are now incompatible with SF2 or already included in SF1/SF2. Most mods rely on stock or 3rd-party models, which are not included. All credits to the makers of these models.
