    • Added VMFA-211 high and low viz liveries for F-35B (courtesy of Richard Luycx)
    • Added VMFA-122 high and low viz liveries for F-35B (courtesy of Richard Luycx)
    • Fixed texture mirroring issue on F-35B NLG Doors
    • Fixed US roundel position on F-35C wings lower surfaces
    • Fixed incorrect painting of air intakes inner surfaces (all models)
    • Added different downwash effects (neutral, water and dust) for F-35B when in STOVL mode
    • Improved Low Altitude warning logic
    • Fixed incorrect material assignment in F-35C intakes (virtual cockpit only)
    • Fixed visual hole in aircraft ground shadow (when viewed from the Virtual Cockpit)
    • Added several sounds missing from the virtual cockpit (safety ribbons, ejection seat lever and some switches)
    • Added "click" sound to PCD interaction for improved feedback
    • Minor fix to ICAO codes and model names
    • Reworked pilot visibility conditions (hopefully this shoudl work in multiplayer)
    • Automatic speedbrake retraction if throttle is above 85%
    • Automatic speedbrake extension during landing ground roll
    • Added "radio noise" filtering to LSO voices
    • Improved "Prandtl-Glauert" singularity visibility conditions
    • Special Effects are now visible from the cockpit *

    * NOTE: due to a glitch in the sim, if you change view when an effect is playing it may stick to "on" condition on the new view. Cycling views will typically fix the glitch.

    Important – Due to several reports of random CTD issues, we have indentfied the HMD code to be a cause of potential instability on some systems. To fix the problem we have created a new HMD basing it on the Asobo SuperHornet code – however it is missing some functionalities of the “complete” version. The new HMD is the default, the old one can be re-activated by following the instructions at the end of the panel.cfg file in the F-35A panel folder. DO NOT ATTEMPT to change this is you are not familiar with .cfg file editing, although backup .cfgs are included.

    Changelog 1.0.2 Hotfix 31-Jan-2022

    • Add-on repackaged (previous build had missing files and configurations)
    • Minor improvement to tailhook logic
    • Minor fix to FCS page (“HOOK” caption was overlapping other captions)
    • IPP Cabin Pressurization knob now defaults to NORM
