    1. Halberstadt CL.II

      The Halberstadt CL.II was a German, 2 seat fighter/escort plane. The CL.II was designed to be an escort for reconnaissance flights. Its excellent maneuverability made it a match for single seat fighters and its field of fire made it an excellent ground attack plane. It entered service in August 1917 and was used in large numbers until the end of the war.
      The Halberstadt CL.II had a plywood fuselage and was powered by a six-cylinder Mercedes D.III engine. It had a 7.92mm Spandau machine gun in the front fuselage for the pilot and a 7.92mm Parabellum gun on a ring mount for the observer. It could also carry a light bomb load. My version has a rack for 10 stick grenades mounted on the fuselage.
      My download includes a hex camo skin, appropriate decals, and a fully functional cockpit. My skinning templates are included with the download.
      I have included a sound file for the Mercedes D.III engine. The same sound has been used with other planes and you may already have it installed. I have included the sound file with the download in case you don't have it.

      Credits
      My thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Halberstadt CL.II and for making improvements to the guns.
      My thanks to Nixou for making the sound file for the Mercedes engine many years ago.

      Installation Instructions
      For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "HalberstadtCL2" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
      If you don't already have it, move the sound file "mercedes160m2.wav" from my "Sounds" into your "Sounds" folder. 

      For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "HalberstadtCL2" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "HalberstadtCL2." Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/HalberstadtCL2 folder into the Decals/HalberstadtCL2 folder you just made. 
      If you don't already have it, move the sound file "mercedes160m2.wav" from my "Sounds" into your "Sounds" folder. If you don't have a Sounds folder, you can make one.

    2. 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 pages 17 and 18 of the "New Aircraft" thread for FE2 on CombatAce.
      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.

    3. Pomilio PE

      The Pomilio PE was a two seat, Italian general purpose plane that entered service in 1917. It had a 300hp Fiat 6 cylinder engine with a radiator mounted in the nose of the aircraft. A fin under the fuselage, around the tail skid, helped improve the stability of the plane.
      The Pomilio PE was used primarily for reconnaissance and was armed with a fixed Fiat-Revelli machine gun over the wing with a ring mounted machine gun operated by the observer. The Pomilio could carry a light bomb load with 3 bombs mounted on the each side of the plane.
      My Pomilio PE includes 2 skins - a green/yellow speckled camo, and a 3 color camo - each with appropriate decals. I have included a small bomb loadout. I have included my skinning templates with the download.
      Historical Notes:
      - My Pomilio PE uses the later style fuselage with a flatter deck behind the pilot because it allowed me to give greater range to the gunner in the game.
      - I have taken extensive liberties with the speckled camo skin version of the plane. When the camouflage was applied at the factory, it usually covered the metal panels around the engine. The speckled camo scheme was not applied to the top of the lower wing. The national insignia on the top wing did not usually extend into the aileron. The 3 color camo version is much more accurate and is the default skin. 
      Credits:
      My thanks to Ojcar for making the data.ini file for this plane.
      Installation instructions:
      For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "PomilioPE" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. 
      For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "PomilioPE" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "PomilioPE". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/PomilioPE folder into the Decals/PomilioPE folder you just made.

    4. SAML S.2

      The SAML S.2 was an improved version of the Aviatik B.I which was built under license by the Societá Anonima Meccanica Lombarda (known as the SAML S.1.) The S.2 was specifically designed to fly in the mountainous terrain of the Italian Front. Improvements mostly involved the wings, which had a slight sweep and were closer together than the Aviatik design. The biggest improvement was the more powerful Fiat A.12 engine capable of delivering 300hp.
      The SAML S.2 was used primarily for reconnaissance and was armed with a fixed Fiat-Revelli machine gun over the wing with a ring mounted machine gun operated by the observer.
      My SAML S.2 includes 2 skins with appropriate decals and a small bomb loadout. I have included my skinning templates with the download.
      Version 2 - More accurate fuselage and gunner station, corrected wing placement and dihedral, corrected gauges in cockpit - all new LODs, revised skins, revised FM, new cockpit LOD and revised cockpit.ini
      Credits:
      My thanks to Ojcar for making the data.ini file for this plane and for providing valuable resources and advice on the details of the SAML S.2.

      Installation instructions:
      For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "SAMLS2" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. 
      For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "SAMLS2" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "SAMLS2". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/SAMLS2 folder into the Decals/SAMLS2 folder you just made.

    6. Polish Anatra DS "Anasal"

      The Anatra DS was a two seat Russian plane powered by a Salmson 9 cylinder, water cooled, rotary engine. The plane was therefore called the "Anasal", short for "Anatra Salmson". When the Ukrainian city of Odessa was occupied by Austria-Hungary early in 1918, the Anatra factory was found intact and production continued as the "Anatra C.I". Many of the first Austrian versions had the Austrian cross painted over the Russian insignia.
      The Anatra DS was used mostly for reconnaissance, but also as a fighter and light bomber. Many of them survived the war and were used in the fighting in Eastern Europe after the end of World War I.
      Poland declared its independence in late 1917. The new nation armed itself with whatever was available,  including abandoned Russian, German and Austrian planes, and purchased planes from other nations. Several Anatra DS were purchased from the Anatra factory in Odessa.
      The Polish Anantra DS was identical to the Russian version, except for slight changes to the cowling, the radiator, and the rudder. The skins to my plane are similar, but not identical to my Russian version. As a resullt, I have included new skinning templates for the Polish Anasal.

      Historical Notes:
      I found several sources which said that Anatras carried a machine gun mounted on the fuselage for the pilot. I couldn't find any details of the mounting, so I guessed where it might be located. 
      I don't know how the Poles armed their plane, so I used the guns I used on the Russian version. I also included a small bomb load.

      Credits:
      My thanks to Ojcar once again for making a new data.ini file for this plane.

      Installation instructions:
      For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "PolishAnasal" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. 
      For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "PolishAnasal" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "PolishAnasal". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/PolishAnasal folder into the Decals/PolishAnasal folder you just made.

    7. Siemens-Schuckert D.I

      The German Siemens-Schuckert D.I was a direct copy of captured Nieuport 17s. The most important difference was in the engine. The Siemens Schuckert Werke (SSW) D.I used a geared Siemens-Halske Sh.I engine which produced 1800rpm. The spinner nose and open bottom cowling were necessary to help cool the engine. A bigger prop required a taller landing gear.
      Problems with engine production delayed the release of the SSW D.I. The Albatros D.III was already available by the time the SSW reached the front. The Albatros was a much superior plane, and was less likely to be mistaken for a French plane. The SSW D.I only served for a short time on the Western Front, they served longer on the Eastern front.
      My Siemens-Schuckert D.I includes a three color camo skin, a full set of number decals, a fully functional cockpit, and damage nodes for the wings. My skinning templates and a sound file for the engine are included in the download.

      Historical Notes:
      I do not have a sound file for the Siemens-Halske Sh.I engine, I am using Nixou's sound for the Le Rhône 110 hp engine instead.

      Credits:

    8. Lebed 7

      The Lebed 7 was a Russian copy of the British Sopwith Tabloid. It was produced in 1915 and was intended to be used as a fighter. But with an 80hp Gnome engine and wing warping controls, it was quickly outclassed and was used primarily for recon and later for training.
       
      The Lebed 7 was shipped from the factory unarmed. The British plane had a machine gun mounted on the upper wing, so it isn't unreasonable to think that a Russian pilot might have tried mounting a gun on his plane. I have made a (possibly fictitious) version of the plane with a Lewis gun mounted on the top wing. 
      My Lebed 7 has a fully functional cockpit, three skins - a grey paint and two clear doped linen, and a full set of number decals. My skinning templates are included.
      The plane comes with a helmeted Russian pilot; instructions for installing the pilot are included. Or you can change the data.ini to use one of the stock FE pilots.
      Many years ago Nixou recorded a a large number of sounds for First Eagles. I have included the sound file for the 80 hp Gnome Monosoupape engine, but you may already have it.

      Credits
      Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Lebed 7.
      Thanks to Nixou for making the sound file for the Gnome 80 hp engine.

    10. New Loadout for DFW C.V stock airplane

      Hi FE Flyers!
      Here is new loadout for the stock DFW C.V airplane.
       More precisely:
      - 4 x PuW_12.5kg (about 50kg, this is stock bomb armament)
      16 x PuW_12.5kg (about 200kg, new type of armament, made by me)
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --To install this mod, extract "DFWC5_Loadout.ini" and "DFWC5_Data.ini" files from "Loadout" folder to your "DFWC5" folder (Probably, this folder is here: C:/Program Files/ThirdWire/WWI/Objects/Aircraft )

      --To uninstall, just delete the files.
       
      Happy Flying!

    11. AEG C.IV

      The AEG C.IV was a German 2 seater that was introduced in 1916 and saw service until the end of the war. It served on the Western, Eastern, and Palestine fronts and was operated by Bulgaria and Turkey as well as by Germany. It was primarily a reconnaissance plane, but was also used as a bomber escort, although not very successfully. It had a fixed Spandau machine gun for the pilot, a Parabellum on a ring mount for the observer, and could carry a small bomb load.
       
      I have included two skins, a green and lilac camo, and a green and brown camo. I have also included a full set of number decals. My skinning templates are included in the download.
       
      There are two bomb loadouts, one internal, and one external mounted under the wings. It is doubtful that the AEG C.IV carried external bombs, but I liked the look of it. For historical accuracy, you probably shouldn't use the External Bombs loadout.
       
       
      Credits
      Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the AEG C.IV and for providing valuable information, especially for the cockpit details.
      Thanks also to Nix, who made the sound file for the Mercedes 160hp engine.
       
      Thanks to Ojcar (again) for pointing out the problem with the decals.
       
       
      Installation Instructions
      For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AEGC4" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. You also need to move the sound file "mercedes160m2.wav" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.

    12. Taube (grenade armed)

      This version of the Taube is armed with a handful of grenades instead of a rifle. many thanks to all the people who worked on the original Taube and a special thanks to Stephen1918 who was kind enough to make time to alter his model to remove the gunner.All work on this is really the efforts of others and my only contribution was to bundle it up. Any issues please direct to me and I'll do my best to fix them as soon as I can.

    13. Sopwith Baby

      The Sopwith Baby was a British, single seat float plane used for reconnaissance and light bombing. It was built in fairly large numbers and was used by the British, French, Italian, Australian, Canadian, and American navies.
       
      My version carries a Lewis machine gun on the upper wing and a has a loadout for a light bomb load. Some Babys had a Lewis gun mounted at an angle through the upper wing and some had a synchronized Lewis mounted on the fuselage, but the horizontal upper wing mount seems to have been the most common.
       
      Since it's a float plane, the Sopwith Baby works best in the Flanders, Gibraltar or other terrain that has a lot of water. Ojcar has done a great job making this plane take off and land realistically on water.
       
      The plane will actually take off and land from a conventional airfield, but it looks strange to see the floats going under the ground. It would be best to start the missions in the air.
       
      I have included two skins, a generic olive skin for France and Britain, and an Italian linen skin. A full set of decals are included with Italian insignia and (fictitious) serial numbers. My skinning templates are included with the download.

    14. Taube

      There were many versions of the Taube produced in the years leading up to World War I. When the war began different versions were being used in large numbers, on all fronts for recon missions. This is the Kondor Taube, which I think is representive of the "classic" Taube. It has the typical wing shape, uses wing warping for both the aileron and elevator surfaces, and has a six cylinder 100HP engine.
       
      I have added a rifle for the observer, which he will aim and fire. I have made significant changes to the wires on the front to give the gunner more room to move.
       
      Ojcar has created a fake machine gun for the pilot, which causes the AI plane to be more aggressive in pursuing enemy planes. I have installed that gun on this plane. Ojcar's "DummyMachineGun" data is included with this download, in case you don't already have it.
       
      Some flyers wore simple crash helmets in WWI, especially in the early days. I am using a pilot with a helmet in this plane. The pilot and installation instructions are included in the download, in case you don't already have it.
       
      The download includes my skinning templates, data for the guns and the German pilot with helmet.
       
      Credits
      Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Taube, and for greatly improving the gunner. Ojcar also made the data for the dummy machine gun.

    15. Lloyd C.II

      This is a complete revision of the Lloyd C.II with all new LODs, new skins, and improved decals. Ojcar has also improved the FM for this plane. Any skins that were made for the original version will not work with this version.
       
      The Lloyd C.II was based on a pre-war Austro-Hungarian airplane but with a slightly shorter wingspan and the addition of a machine gun on a circular mount for the observer. The C.II featured a plywood body and swept-back, tapered wings and was used for reconnaissance and light bombing throughout the war.
       
      The gun ring had limited movement, especially in the vertical direction, which I have tried to reproduce in my model. This will be a challenging plane to fly because you need to move the plane to bring enemy planes into range of the gunner. There is no gun for the pilot.
       
      There are also two bomb loading options for light and heavy bombing runs. (We don't know if the Lloyd ever carried 50kg bombs, but we included the option anyway.)
       
      I have included three skinning options, one with standard Austro-Hungarian markings from early in the war, and two from later in the war. I have included my skinning templates for those who want make their own skins.
       
      I have included a set of serial numbers which will be randomly assigned to each plane. The numbers are fictitious, but in the correct range for the Lloyd C.II.
       
      Ojcar made a new data.ini for this plane. He added the heavy bomb option to the loadout. The 6.5 Schwarzlose gun he created for the original plane is included, along with his instructions for loading the gun data ("DataReadMe.txt")
       
      Credits:
      Great thanks to Ojcar, who made the excellent FM and who added some nice features to this plane.
       
      Installation instructions:
      This is a complete revision of the original Lloyd C.II. If you have the plane already, begin by deleting the Lloyd C.II from the Aircraft Folder, and (if you run FE2) from the Decals folder. Then install the new plane.
       
      For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "LloydC2" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
       
      For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "LloydC2" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create new folder named "LloydC2". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/LloydC2 folder into the Decals/LloydC2 folder you just made.

    16. Farman HF.20 unarmed

      The Farman HF.20 was developed in 1913 and was being used by most of the air forces in Europe by the time World War I began. It was designed for reconnaissance and had very stable flight characteristics, but it didn't have a very powerful engine and wasn't suitable for fighter or bomber missions, although some pilots made the attempt. The Farman F.20 was withdrawn from front line service as more nimble aircraft became available.
       
      This version does not have a machine gun and places the observer behind the pilot.It can carry a small bomb load, with the bombs being released over the side. This install will not replace the original Farman HF.20, so you can fly both of them in First Eagles.
       
      My skins for Belgian, French, and Russian versions will work for both versions of the HF.20. I have included all three in this download. The Russian version uses the decal.ini posted by Crawford in the forums. Decals and my skinning templates are included in the download.
       
      Some flyers wore simple crash helmets in WWI, especially in the early days. I am using a pilot with a helmet in this plane. The pilot and installation instructions are included in the download, in case you don't already have it.
       
      The Farman HF.20 has a wider wingspan than First Eagles expects so you should install my "Airfields for Large Planes" available in the Combat Ace downloads area. Otherwise, when starting on the runway, your wings may be touching the wings of the planes next to you. This will cause an immediate collision and you or other planes in your flight may lose their wingtips as soon as the game starts.

      Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Farman HF.20.
       
      Thanks also to Crawford who created a more accurate decal.ini for the Russian version and who provided resources for the Farman cockpits.
       
      Installation Instructions
      For FE1 - Unzip the file. Move the folder named "FarmanHF20U" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
       
      For FE2 - Unzip the file. Move the folder named "FarmanHF20U" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "FarmanHF20U". Move the folder named "D" from your Aircraft/FarmanHF20U folder into the Decals/FarmanHF20U folder you just made.
       
      You may not need to install the pilot with helmet, it has been available for download for some time and you may already have it. If you don't already have it, I have included the pilot and instructions for installing in a separate folder included in this download.

    18. Caudron G.4

      The Caudron G.4 was a twin engine French bomber. It was introduced late in 1915, it used wing warping for banking and had four rudders. The plane was widely used, and saw service on most of the fronts. After 1916, it was used mostly for night bombing and reconnaissance.
       
      I have included four skins, a French linen, an Italian linen, a Russian grey, and a British brown. I have included some personal markings, but the serial number is so hard to see on this plane, that I only made one. My skinning templates are included in the download.
       
      There are three bomb loadouts, including one internal, and two external bomb loads. I had to make a special pilot, because the stock FE pilot would not fit in the Caudron cockpit. The new pilot is included in the download.
       
      Historical Note
      All of the examples I found had linen skins, except for some Russian grey or light blue planes. I have included a British brown skin because it seemed likely that other colors than plane linen were used, although I found no evidence of it.
       
      Credits
      Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Caudron G.4.
      Thanks also to Whiteknight06604 who originally suggested this plane more than a year ago, and provided some resources at that time. Thanks also to Jeanba, who helped research skins for the Caudron G.4.
       

      Installation Instructions

    19. SPAD 11

      The SPAD 11 was originally designed as a two seat fighter, but was not agile enough to meet the requirements; so it used as a replacement for the Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter and Dorand AR reconnaissance planes. It was armed with a forward firing Vickers gun and a Lewis gun on a ring mount for the observer. It could also carry a small bomb load. The SPAD 11 entered service in late 1917, was flown by several French and Belgian squadrons, and continued in service until nearly the end of the war.
       
      I have made three skins for the SPAD 11 - a French linen, a French camo, and a Belgian camo - each with appropriate squadron insignia. My skinning templates are included in the download for those who want to make their own skins. I have also included a loadout for a light bomb load carried under the wings.

    20. LFG Roland D.II

      The Roland D.II was a German fighter introduced in early 1917. It featured an unusual fuselage, with the upper wings attached to a pylon in front of the pilot. Although the plane had a strong structure and performed reasonably well, the poor forward view limited its effectiveness as a fighter. On the Western Front, it was soon replaced by other planes, but continued in service on the Eastern and Macedonian Fronts until the end of the war.
       
      I have included two skins, a green and lilac camo, and a green and brown camo. I have also included a full set of number decals. My skinning templates are included in the download.

    21. Anatra D "Anade"

      The Anatra D was a predecessor to the Anatra DS. It was powered by a Gnome rotary engine and armed with a single machine gun for the observer. The Anatra D was used mostly for reconnaissance, but also as a fighter and light bomber. After overcoming some initial design problems, it entered service in May, 1916 and was produced in relatively large numbers. Many of them survived the war and were used in the fighting in Eastern Europe after the end of World War I.
       
      I have included two skins, a plain linen and a grey paint. A full set of number decals and a loadout for light bombs are included. I have also included my skinning templates for those who wish to make their own skins.

    22. F2B package

      So you all have the wonderful F2B by the A-Team?
       
      And the not least wonderful Peter01 FM for this bird?
       
      Very well, I have tuned a little more the FM (more easy take off for the AI), and have added a virtual second Machine gun for the observer. You'll see only one Lewis (that's the way the model it's done), but be careful, because there are two Lewis firing at you (in the very same location). I also changed the POW in the cockpit, so it's much more easier firing the Vickers!
       
      The original FM (F2Ba, the one without wing Lewis, historically more correct) is from a 275 Hp Falcon III engined, so I have decided to make both Falcon I (190Hp with only one Lewis) and Falcon II (220Hp) engined Bristols!!!!

      The Martinsyde G.102 was a G.100 aircraft with a more powerful 160 hp Beardmore engine, which gave it slightly better performance. Again I could not have produced this upload without the patient help from Stephen1918, ocjar, gterl, and Wrench. Thanks, guys.

    24. Albatros D.I

      The Albatros D.I was the first in a long line of successful Albatros fighters. It had a molded plywood fuselage, which made it lightweight but strong. With its powerful engine and dual machine guns it outclassed any Entente fighters in the air at the time.
       
      The biggest drawback to the D.I was the position of the upper wing, which obscured the pilot's view. Production quickly switched to the D.II which was basically the same plane but with the upper wing mounted lower.
       
      The download includes three skins, a basic linen, a grey paint, and a 2 color camo. There is also a full a full set of serial number decals. The skinning templates are identical to the Albatros D.II templates, I have included them in this download for the sake of convenience.
       
      This plane uses the same engine sound as the Albatros D.II, which you probably already have. I have placed an alternate line in the data file to change the sound to the default "PropLoop" sound if you prefer.

    25. Halberstadt D5

      This aircraft is an all-new model, with hi-res skins. The D5 was basically a cleaned up D3. The upper wing structure was revised with a simpler strut system that improved pilot visibility, and the exhaust system was simplified. The D5 had provision for two Spandau machine guns, but usually just one was installed on the left side (to save weight). The D5's structure was very strong for its day, but the 120 hp engine was not powerful enough to match the performance of Albatross fighters so only fifty-seven D5s were built.
       
      A separate graphics pack will be posted soon, containing textures and templates.
       
      To install, unzip the contents to a new folder.
       
      For FE/FEG: I don't have them so I don't know how to install these files. If you run FE/FEG and have trouble loading these files, post a question in the First Eagles section here at Combat Ace - someone should help you.
       
      For FE2:
      Copies of three ini files - ENVIRONMENTSYSTEM, SOUNDLIST, VIEWLIST - go in your FLIGHT folder.
      A copy of the HalberstadtD5 folder goes in your OBJECTS/AIRCRAFT folder.
      A copy of the Pilots folder goes in your OBJECTS folder.
      A copy of the SOUNDS folder goes in your First Eagles 2 folder (alongside FLIGHT, OBJECTS, etc)
       
      There is a long list of guys who helped me produce this aircraft, or posted stuff that I used to complete the package:
      - Stephen1918
      - Ojcar
      - gambit168
      - Sully
      - Southside Bucky
      - Nixou
      - Viper63a
       
      I've probably forgotten someone - if so, my apologies. Enjoy!
