    A little Christmas present from myself and Zeus-cat.
    An update to an auto installer version for the Straight From the Farm campaign that includes the original and some updated files necessary for the Campaign and Single missions to work.
    The updates to the Campaign and Single missions will still allow them to be played using the "Stand Alone" and "Merged" versions of Pacific Fighters.

    There have been some problems in the past getting the Straight From the Farm download installed to the correct location so it would work. I am hoping that by creating an auto installer that works exactly like one of the Official patches any future problems getting the campaign installed will be minimized.

    A small patch to fix some minor problems that still existed with the Straight from the Farm campaign and to help make it more compatible with most mod packs.

    Straight from the Farm campaign v1.02 patch: Mission4Today Downloads - Straight from the Farm campaign v1.02 patch
    The updates to the Campaign and Single missions will still allow the missions and campaign to work with the "Stand Alone" and "Merged" versions of Pacific Fighters.
    This update includes only the currently updated files that were found to have errors.
    You will first need to install the full campaign download, mentioned in the "How to Install" section below, for the Campaign and Single missions to work.


    Fixes:
    1. .mis files.
      • Farm_A06.mis
        Changed Wing g0100 to IN_NN00. This changes "German None" to "IJN None" so markings would be correct on the D3A1 aircraft on the stationary aircraft carrier.
        Removed "StartTime 2" from players Wing data. It is ignored when the mission is loaded because the player always starts when the mission loads.
      • Farm_A07.mis
        Changed Wing g0100 to IN_NN00. This changes "German None" to "IJN None" so markings would be correct on the D3A1 aircraft on the stationary aircraft carrier.
        Changed Wing USN_VB_1A31 to USN_VB_1A30 and USN_VB_1A11 to USN_VB_1A31. This will keep the player from spawning into the TBF when using mods where the TBF has been made into a player useable aircraft.
      • Farm_A09.mis
        Changed fuel from 50% to 100% so it matches the briefing text in Mission 8 and Mission 9. Mission objectives are still achievable.
      • Farm_A19.mis
        Moved the Intrepid task force and Hidden Recon target so they were in the center of the final waypoint of the F4F-4 when flown to the briefings stated flight path and Airspeed.
      • Farm_A19a.mis
        A copy of "Farm_A19.mis" that includes the F4F-4 waypoint path.
    2. .properties files.
      • Added all briefing texts, .properties files, with an _ru extension to the Campaign and Single Mission folders to be compatible with most Mod packs.
        This includes the briefings for all 27 of the extra Single missions included in the SFTF-Practice folder.
    3. Documents
      • Made some corrections to the "Straight From the Farm Briefings.doc" and "Straight From the Farm Briefings.txt" files.
        • Briefing List:
          Mission #09 - Lexington Class Carrier Takeoff with 3 x 250-pound bombs - changed to 1 x 500-pound bomb.
        • Briefing text:
          Mission #5 - You will almost certainly want to around too soon. - You will almost certainly want to "turn" around too soon.

    How to Install:
    1. Install the Straight From the Farm campaign by Zeus-cat: Mission4Today Downloads - Straight From the Farm by Zeus-cat.
    2. Install the Straight from the Farm campaign v1.02 patch: Mission4Today Downloads - Straight from the Farm campaign v1.02 patch
      Unzip/Extract the "StraightFarm_v1-02.zip" file onto your desktop.
      There are two files in the zip folder.

      WC_Straight_From_the_Farm_Readme_v1-02.txt
    3. Click on the "StraightFarm_v1-02.exe" and follow the instructions for installing the files.
      Default Install Location: C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946
      (The StraightFarm_v1-02.exe file uses WinRAR which is the same program as the Official patches.)
    4. After the files have installed start the sim and click on the Pilot Career button.
    5. In the Airforce selection find and select the USN (United States Navy) option.
    6. In the Career section find and select the "Straight from the Farm" campaign.
    7. Set the "Rank" and "Difficulty" settings.
      (See the "Description" text to find out what Rank and Difficulty settings to use for the campaign.)
