    1. Skinpack for stock SPAD VII's

      Default skinpack for stock SPAD VII's.
      There are two skins - for French and Russian aviation.
      I tried to add some "photorealistic" textures for more impressive image of this aircraft.
      I removed wing's cockades and rudder's emblems from "Decals.ini" because they were integrated in my skin.

    4. Polish-Russian War - Russian Tachanka

      A tachanka was a horse drawn wagon or cart with a heavy machine gun mounted on the back. This made it possible to deploy machine guns quickly, especially on the wide, rapidly changing, Eastern Front. It was used by Russian cavalry in WWI and by Bolshevik, White Russian, Ukrainian, and Polish cavalry in the Russian Civil Wars. Germany used a similar vehicle on the Eastern Front during WWI.
      My tachanka is a troika (three horse carriage) with a Vickers machine gun facing the rear. It functions in First Eagles as a Truck; drop it into your Ground Objects folder and First Eagles will assign it to some of your Armed Reconnaissance missions. The machine gun is set for AA and will fire at enemy planes that come within its field of fire.
      The download includes three LODs and a destroyed version.
      My thanks to Gepard for suggesting this interesting vehicle.

      Installation Instructions
      For both FE1 and FE2
      Unzip the file and open my "GroundObject" folder. Copy the folder named "Tachanka" to your FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObject folder. Then copy the file named "TachankaDestroyed.bmp" into your GroundObject folder. Note that the "TachankaDestroyed.bmp" file should not be inside any other folder.

    6. Nieuport 21

      The Nieuport 21 was designed to be a long range escort fighter. It used a Nieuport 17 airframe with the smaller Nieuport 11 engine to reduce fuel consumption and  extend its range. The lighter weight gave the plane a good climb rate, but the lower power engine reduced its speed.
      The Nieuport 21 served along with the Nieuport 17 on the Western Front. It was also licensed to the Dux factory in Russia and large numbers were used on the Eastern Front.
      My version of the Nieuport 21 is armed with a single Lewis gun mounted on the upper wing and has a loadout for eight Le Prieur Rockets for Balloon Busting missions. This package features two skins - one French, one Russian - a set of decals, and a fully functional cockpit. My skinning templates are included with the download.
      This plane uses the Le Prieur Rockets created by P10ppy and a sound file created by Nixou (included with his Realistic Engine Sounds package). Both of these files are available in the Combat Ace Download section. Both of these files are used by other aircraft, so you may already have them. I have included Nixou's sound file with this package in case you don't already have it.

      Credits:
      My thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Nieuport 21.
      My thanks to Nixou for making the sound file for the Le Rhone 80hp engine.

      Installation instructions:
      This aircraft uses P10ppy's Le Prieur rockets available in the CombatAce downloads section. You may already have it. If you don't, you'll have to download it and  install it into your Weapons folder.
      For FE1: 
      Unzip the file and move the folder named "Nieuport21" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. If you don't already have it, copy the file named "LeRhone9c80hp1m4" from my Sounds folder into yours.
      For FE2: 
      Unzip the file and move the folder named "Nieuport21" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in your FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "Nieuport21". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/Nieuport21 folder into the Decals/Nieuport21 folder you just made. If you don't already have it, copy the file named "LeRhone9c80hp1m4" from my Sounds folder into yours.

      EmlD Nieuport 24E (trainer) "Issoudun Nieuport series" for First Eagles 2
      This is a full aircraft type, trying to represent the trainer Nieuports used by United States at Issoudun.
      "Issoudun Nieuport series" a set of several Nieuports used by the United States to train pilots during WW1 in France at Issoudun airdrome. Many of these Nieuports had very atypical painting schemes, between them, two with fish scales were "The Jazbo" And the "Flying Fish" (also called the "Dragon ship" or "Gwynne's Goldfish") and several others. Also these were considered "special ships" and representative of their unit. Often they were just for formation flying. Each crew tried to keep these bird primed for inspection. At Field eight there were multiple single coloured Nieuport 24 types used as aggressors for camera armed dogfights so a student could prove he had gotten his opponent. I gathered most of them in this series of skins.  
      This first pack features EmlD Nieuports 24 that I renamed Nieuport 24E (trainer).
      You will find several versions for some of the planes with different colors at your choice.

      3- Two (2) Nieuport 24 of of unknown squadrons photographed at Pruniers airfield, Romorantin, France. 
      4- Geezer pilot figure new textures (US Pilot) that I painted to be used with Geezer's "wwiPilotNew3".

    9. Polish-Russian War - Ford FT-B

      The Ford FT-B (also know as the Ford Tf-c) was a Polish armored car built in Warsaw in 1920. It was built on a Model-T chassis using steel plate left by the Germans. The FT-B had a crew of two and was armed with a single Maxim machine gun in a rotating turret. It had a relatively high speed and a long range. Because it was light weight and easy to maneuver it was an effective fighter, and the Ford's small profile made it difficult to hit.
      My Ford FT-B has a four color camo skin. I've made high and low poly LODs as well as a destroyed version. I backdated the data file to before the Polish-Russian War so the car can be used throughout; you can change the Service Start Date to June of 1920 if you want greater accuracy.
      In First Eagles, the the Ford FT-B takes the role of a tank. Drop it into your ground object folder and First Eagles will randomly assign it to some of your Army Co-operation missions.

      Installation Instructions
      For both FE and FE2 - Unzip the file and open my "GroundObject" folder. Copy the folder named "FordFTB" and the file named "FTBDest.bmp" into your FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObject folder. Note that the "FTBDest.bmp" file should not be inside any other folder.

    10. WWI Airfield Vehicles and Objects

      Four vehicles and other objects that modders can add to airfields using the target.ini. I have made them rather generic so they should be usable for either side, on any front. I have included the data for the types.ini for each object in the download. 
      Vehicles include a Starter Truck, a Fuel Truck, a Utility Truck, and a Staff Car. I have also included an Oil Cart and a grouping of miscellaneous Tools used by the ground crews.  
      Each vehicle has a high and low poly LOD as well as a destroyed version. I have organized everything into folders for convenience, but you'll need to take them out of the folders when you install them.

    14. Default camo skin for SPAD 13's family

      It's the time of default skin for the most popular stock aircraft of all flight sims about WW1 - SPAD 13.
      I tried to add some "photorealistic" textures for more impressive image of this aircraft.
      I removed wing cockardes and rudder's tricolor from "Decals.ini" because they were integrated in my skin.
      Put folder "D' into "Objects/Decals/SPAD13".

    18. Heinkel He 51

      Heinkel He 51
      Spanish Civil War era
       
      A set of skins for Stephen 1918's HE 51. This is the same format , and arrangement, in my previous upload, except this is purely for FE 2 and specifically the Spanish Civil War map. All files except for the LOD files are included, you will need to download Stephens original Heinkel HE 51, then drop my files into the folder that has Stephens original aircraft in it, allow the overwrite, as the .INI files are slightly Different from Stephens. The Skins are 3 different ones from Condor Legion J 88, then 4 Luftwaffe examples in their colourful pre war plumage. 2 Bulgarian examples, one is pre Soviet , and the other post Soviet. Finally there is a Spanish 1939 version.
      Any problems or errors, please do message me, and I will hopefully rectify the issue.
       
      Enjoy

    19. Tweaked Flight Models and Realism Pack for FE2

       
       
       
      Hello Gents & Fellow Flyers of First Eagles 2,

      Included in the same folder with this ReadMe file are over 200 modified data files that I use for aircraft that are available on the CombatAce website for First Eagles 2. I’m very pleased that we have a larger selection of aircraft for the WWI period than WOFFue or ROF – well done modders and many thanks!
      The installation process for the data ini modifications is now streamlined, with all versions up to 9.7 being included per theater in a large “consolidated” folder. Inside that folder you will find earlier “Read Me” files that list previous version histories.   The latest files are found per theater in a separate “DataFilesAdditionsVer99” folder. Also take note of other folders located in the latest ver. 9.9 update, and install items into the relevant folder hierarchy of your FE2 user directory. Always install older version files first before upgrading to the latest ver. FM pack (if you are missing ver. 9.7, for example, first install the files from the big consolidated folder before overwriting with the files from ver. 9.9). General ini files for newer, created aircraft sub-variants not available on CombatAce (such as the Pfalz E.II) can be found in the relevant folders under the large, older consolidated folder.   A great many thanks go out to Peter01 and Ojcar, also TexMurphy, for making most of those flight model files to begin with. Also a great thanks goes out to Stephen1918, MontyCZ and Laton for providing lots of beautiful planes and skins that go with those great flight models, to NBell for the many hitbox improvements provided for the planes, also to VonOben, Mike Dora and Crawford for many helpful suggestions, and to the A-Team by SkunkWorks for allowing me to tweak a few of the FMs for their models too. And of course a very big thanks goes out to Geezer for several fantastic, high-quality models that were produced for FE2.
      What I've done is tinkered with the data files further. Modifications in all cases, to a greater or lesser extent, include data under the following sections:

      (a) MissionData
      (b) FlightControl
      (c) AIData
      (d) Sound
      (e) AircraftData
      (f) Engine
      (g) Crew
      (h) Internal Guns
      (i) Control Surfaces
      (j) Landing Gears
      (k) Fuselage, Nose, Tail, Vertical Tail, LeftStab, RightStab, Rudder, Left/Right/Inner/Middle/Outer/Tip Wing components
       
      As always, please read the included "Read Me" file for more thorough installation info. and details regarding the FM tweaks. Enjoy and happy flying!
      Von S
      NOTES: Ver. 9.9 of the FM & Realism Package, among other things, also removes unnecessary "DS_store" files that sometimes show up on the OS X/Mac OS side of my Macs when tweaking data inis. For several of Geezer's latest aircraft and my FMs for those aircraft (Nieuports, Pfalzes, etc.), which are not included in this package, please see the relevant post located towards the bottom of page 25 of the "New Aircraft" thread for FE2, on CombatAce. Also see relevant posts on pages 26 and 27 of that same thread for Geezer's "early beta" collection that contains the Breguet XIV, Junkers J.I, and other updates.
      DISCLAIMER: All Von S mods, for FE2, SF2, also WOFFue, are subject to the CombatAce "freeware" terms of agreement. Mods may be shared with others, included on other media devices, also modded further, providing that original documentation and/or credit is included, and providing that the mods remain free to use. Von S mods shall not be sold, resold, etc., and Von S takes no responsibility for injuries or fixations that may result from flying heavily tweaked FMs or from attempts to enjoy real flying without aid or instruction from a qualified flight instructor.

    20. Sopwith Triplane - Dual Gun

      The Sopwith Triplane, also known as the "Tripe" or "Tripehound," was introduced at the end of 1916. By mid 1917, several British and French naval squadrons were equipped with the plane. The narrow chord of the three staggered wings gave the pilot an excellent field of view and gave the plane an exceptional rate of climb as well as outstanding agility. The Triplane was considered an exceptional fighter and stayed in service until replaced by the Sopwith Camel in late 1917. Captured Sopwith Triplanes inspired the development of the more famous Fokker Dr.1.
      My model of the Sopwith Triplane has the smaller tail assembly introduced early in 1917. Earlier planes had a larger tail plane nearly identical to the tail of the Sopwith Pup. Most Triplanes were equipped with a single Vickers machine gun mounted on the fuselage. A small number of Sopwith Triplanes had two guns. This is the two gun version.
      My Sopwith Triplane has a skin, with appropriate decals, for the "Black Flight" of the RNAS 10 squadron. Note - these skins are NOT interchangeable with the skins for my other Sopwith Triplanes. 
      A fully functional cockpit is included, along with my skinning templates. I have included a sound file for the Clerget 130 hp engine, but you may already have it.
      Credits
      Although he's very busy these days, Ojcar found the time to make the FM for this plane. My thanks to him.
      The sound file included with this plane came with Sinbad's series of Sopwith Strutters, so you may already have it. I included it with this download in case you don't.
      Historical Note
      The Black Flight had five planes, each with its name painted at the cockpit. I have added 15 fictitious names in order to complete the decal set.
      Installation Instructions
      For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "SopwithTripe2Gun" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
      My Triplane uses the sound file that came with Sinbad's series of Strutters, so you may already have it. If you don't, copy the file named "RotaryEngineClerget130" from my Sounds folder into your FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
      For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "SopwithTripe2Gun" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create new folder named "SopwithTripe2Gun". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/SopwithTripe2Gun folder into the Decals/SopwithTripe2Gun folder you just made.
      My Triplane uses the sound file that came with Sinbad's series of Strutters, so you may already have it. If you don't, copy the file named "RotaryEngineClerget130" from my Sounds folder into your FirstEagles/Sounds folder.

    21. Sopwith Triplane - Early

      The Sopwith Triplane, also known as the "Tripe" or "Tripehound," was introduced at the end of 1916. By mid 1917, several British and French naval squadrons were equipped with the plane. The narrow chord of the three staggered wings gave the pilot an excellent field of view and gave the plane an exceptional rate of climb as well as outstanding agility. The Triplane was considered an exceptional fighter and stayed in service until replaced by the Sopwith Camel in late 1917. Captured Sopwith Triplanes inspired the development of the more famous Fokker Dr.1.
      The first planes produced had a tail plane nearly identical to the tail of the Sopwith Pup. Early planes also had a 110hp Clerget engine. A smaller tail plane was introduced early in 1917. The engine was also replaced with a more powerful 130hp Clerget engine.  
      This is an early version of the Sopwith Triplane with a wider tail and lower powered engine. It has two skins, one French and one British, with appropriate decals. Note - these skins are NOT interchangeable with the skins for my other Sopwith Triplanes. 
      A fully functional cockpit is included, along with my skinning templates. I have included a sound file for the Clerget engine, but you may already have it.

      Although he's very busy these days, Ojcar found the time to make the FM for the early Sopwith Triplane. My thanks to him.
      I have included a sound file for the Clerget engine created by Nixou. It has been used on other planes, so you may already have it. I included it with this download in case you don't.
      Historical Note
      The 110 hp Clerget engine was the 9Z. I don't have a sound file for the 9Z so I used a sound for the Clerget 9B instead.
      Installation Instructions
      For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "SopwithTriplane" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
      I have included Nixou's sound for the Clerget engine. It has been used with other planes, so you may already have it. If you don't, copy the file named "clerget9b2m2" from my Sounds folder into your FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
      For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "SopwithTriplane" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.

    25. Early skin for Phoenix D.II

      Skin for excellent Phoenix D.II by Stephen1918.
      This is early skin "Natural wood/ natural canvas".
      I tried to add some "photorealistic" textures for more impressive image of this aircraft.
      Add to PhoenixD2.ini:
      [TextureSetXXX]
      Name=EarlyPhR
      Nation=AUSTRIA
      Squadron=
      Specular=0.700000
      Glossiness=0.900000
      Reflection=0.700000
      For FE2 - put folders from "D" into Objects/Decals/PhoenixD2/D.
