  6. Industrial Objects

    This pack contains a variety of large, medium, and small industrial objects - plus two urban housing blocks. They were originally developed at the request of FE map makers so their appearance is typical of WW1. Wrench then pointed out that they could also be used for other maps - 1930s, WW2, and even parts of the Cold War. A modest selection of complimentary 1930s civilian vehicles is in development, and will be added in the future.
     
     
     
    THESE MODELS ARE ONLY TO BE DISTRIBUTED AS FREEWARE AND IN NO OTHER CIRCUMSTANCE SHALL THEY BE USED, EVEN IN PART, OF ANYTHING THAT IS PAYWARE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE COMBAT ACE MODDERS AGREEMENT.

  9. Infantry Units

    I have created 10 new infantry units for First Eagles. They are all pretty much identical except for their helmets and uniform colors. Each unit is a five man squad (three riflemen and two runners.) The units will move around and the riflemen will aim and fire independently.
     
    I have created a dust effect for when they are moving and I've created a gunshot sound for their rifles. The rifles are based on Peter01's rifle data, with my sound effect and a few other minor changes. All the Entente units use the Lee Enfield rifle, and all the Central units use the Mauser.
     
    This download includes infantry units for: Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Russia, America, Australia, and Turkey.
     
    I couldn't bring myself to kill the poor guys, so they just disappear when they get shot.
     
    Credits
    My thanks to Heck and Geo for leading the way!
    Thanks also to Peter01 for his original rifle data files.
     
     
    Installation Instructions
    Unzip the file and copy the units you want from my GroundObjects folder into your FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObjects folder. Copy the sound file "InfantryRifle.wav" from my Sounds folder into your FirstEagles/Sounds folder. Copy the dust effect "RunningInfantryEmitter.ini" from my Effects folder into your FirstEagles/Effects folder.
     
    Follow the instructions for installing the guns and sound in the two other instruction files included with the download.

  10. Anti-aircraft Guns

    Most of the anti-aircraft guns in World War One were converted field guns, especially during the early years. Some modifications were necessary however to make an effective anti-aircraft weapon. I have created four new anti-aircraft guns for First Eagles.
     
    A French 75mm field gun, mounted on a 120mm gun carriage. This allowed the barrel to be elevated quite high without danger of the breech hitting the ground on the recoil.
     
    A Russian Putilov 76.2mm field gun. The turntable mount and variations of it were common in WWI because the gun could be quickly dismounted and used as a field gun again.
     
    A German Krupp 77mm gun on a special anti-aircraft gun carriage. The axles were hinged and the tail had an anchor to allow the gun to be easily rotated. The gap in the carriage allowed the gun to be elevated higher than a normal field gun.
     
    An Italian Déport 77mm field gun. The recoil mechanism remained horizontal so the breech couldn't hit the ground no matter how high the gun was aimed. An improvised mount gave the gun a higher elevation.
     
    Captured field guns were often used as anti-aircraft weapons. I have left the helmets and tunics off the gun crews so you can easily convert them to whatever nation you want. It wouldn't be unusual to see Austrians using an Italian gun, Germans using a French gun, or Russians using a German gun.
     
    All guns use the stock 75mm gun data from First Eagles.
     
    My thanks to Hansa for providing reference material for World War I anti-aircraft guns.
     
     
    Installation Instructions
    You can install the guns individually or all at once. Unzip the file and move the folders you want into the FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObjects folder. You must also copy the file "DestroyedAAA.bmp" into the FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObjects folder.
     
    Destroyed versions of all the guns use the same skin. The file named "DestroyedAAA.bmp" must be placed in the root level of the GroundObjects folder (not inside any other folders.)

    smoke from damaged aircraft. The effects 'fill in' entries left empty in the release version

  15. Armored Cars

    Tanks did not appear on the battlefield until mid 1917 and were used mostly on the Western Front. But cars and trucks with steel plating and machine guns were used from the beginning of the war and were used in large numbers on all fronts.
     
    I have made a set of five armored cars which can be used to replace the tanks in Army Co-operation missions. The tanks in First Eagles have a start date of 5/1917, these armored cars have a start date of 5/1914, so they will automatically replace the tanks in missions dated 1916 or before.
     
    This download includes:
    A British Rolls Royce, built on a Silver Ghost car chassis and armed with a Vickers Machine Gun in the turret. If you've seen the movie "Lawrence of Arabia," this is the car they used in some of the battle sequences.
     
    A German Ehrhardt, with two Maxim Machine Guns in the turret. These were used mostly on the Eastern Front.
     
    A French Peugeot, with a Hotchkiss Machine Gun in the Turret. Peugeots didn't have turrets until very late in the war, but I thought this looked better than an open truck, and it was easier to build.
     
    An Italian Lancia, with two Fiat-Revelli Machine Guns in the turret. The rails on the front were for ripping up barbed wire.
     
    A Russian Putilov, built on a British Austin truck chassis, with Vickers Machine Guns in two turrets. The steel trough around the gun and the multiple turrets are fairly typical of Russian armored vehicles.
     
    I have included destroyed versions of all the trucks. They explode and burn quite nicely.
     
     
    Installation Instructions
    Unzip the file and drag the five armored car folders and the file named "DestroyedArmoredCar.bmp" into your FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObject folder. All the destroyed vehicles use the same skin and the BMP file must be in root level of the GroundObject folder.

  16. Trucks for First Eagles

    I have made two generic trucks for First Eagles. Both have cabs, so it isn't so obvious that they don't have drivers when you see them from the air.
     
    The Russian Truck is loosely based on the Russian Garford-Putilov but is similar to the WFD and the Jeffrey. It had a high ground clearance and the engine was in the middle, under the bed, which made it good for driving on poor roads.
     
    The Austrian Truck is loosely based on the German Daimler-Marienfelde but is similar to many other trucks of the era.
     
    I have provided alternate skins, an olive color for the Russian, and a tan color for the Austrian, so you can convert them to use for other nations if you want.
     
     
    Installation Instructions
    You can install the trucks individually or both together. Unzip the file and move the folders you want into the FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObjects folder.

  17. Field Guns for First Eagles

    In World War I, field guns were light artillery weapons used for infantry support on the battlefield. The barrel could be elevated using a mechanism on the carriage, but the entire gun had to be turned to aim it. I have created eight new field guns for First Eagles, each with a two man crew behind a small log and earth barricade.
     
    This download includes - a Russian Putilov 76.2mm, and Austrian Krupp 77mm, A German Krupp 77mm, an Italian Déport 77mm, a French 75mm, a British 75mm, an American 75mm, and a Turkish Krupp 77mm.
     
    The field guns take the role of Tank in First Eagles so they will appear on the battlefield during Army Co-operation missions. All the guns use the stock 75mm gun data from First Eagles.
     
     
    Installation Instructions
    You can install the guns individually or all at once. Unzip the file and move the folders you want into the FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObjects folder. Destroyed versions of all the guns use the same skin as the AAA guns. If you don't already have it, you must also copy the file "DestroyedAAA.bmp" into the FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObjects folder. The file must be placed in root level of the GroundObjects folder (not inside any other folders.)

  18. 1930s Ground And Terrain Objects

    Kudos to Wrench! He massaged the basic elements I sent him, and created a complete DL ready to drop into your game folders. He set it up for SF2 but it should work OK for FE2. As usual, pay attention to the ReadMe. This pack does not include airfield figures - they are still in-work so a separate pack will be released when they are complete. The floor of the large hangar is a separate object, similar to the parking ramp. Hopefully, you can tweak the height and angle of these objects if you encounter problems with a game map that is not completely flat and level.

  19. FE AA Objects

    Steven1918 and I have put together a comprehensive collection of WW1 anti-aircraft guns. A noteworthy feature is, for the first time, a selection of medium-level 37/40mm auto cannons that bridge the gap between low-level MGs and high-level 75mm AA cannons. The Maxim 37/40mm auto cannon, dubbed the "pom-pom" by the Brits, was used in various versions by all the major powers and was still in limited service early in WW2. Pom-poms will significantly affect a gamer's experience when flying below 5,000 feet, and could motivate a gamer to replay old campaigns - especially if he used to like balloon-busting. Now that balloons can be realistically defended, he may not like balloon-busting anymore.
     
    In addition to the pom-poms, there are multiple types of AA MGs. Also included are two types of optional gun pits: a C-shaped pit intended for use with AA guns, and a U-shaped pit intended for use with artillery, plus balloon winches for the major powers.

  20. Heck Mitchell's WW1 Poor Bloody Infantry Mod

    I've gotten permission from Kesselbrut to post a version of his WW2 infantry for use in First Eagles. Here's the laundry list of odd things:
    1. They're WW2 lods, so one man in each squad has a bazooka that fires as a rifle.
    2. All squads, French, British, German, and American, have lods that show a tripod mounted Browning type 30 cal machine gun, although each different nationality is armed with a machine gun from the gun data ini: French, Hotchkiss; Germans, Maxims; British, Vickers; and Americans, Colt-Brownings.
    3. I had to increase the rifleman's rate of fire to 30 rpm just to get the little peckerwoods to fire at all.
    4. I changed the French uniform color to as close to Horizon Blue as my color blind eyes would let me, but now the Frenchman are a little pasty, and seem to have a mild sunburn. I am not a graphic artist.
    5. Although I've changed the data ini weapons and detection systems to say AIR_AND_GROUND, the little jerks still just fire at each other, and I don't know why, although it might be that because of the range at which they start they are already engaged with opposing forces. This mod will give you infantry squads blazing away at each other in single missions (Army Co-operation), especially if you change the data inis of your tanks to RARE, and VERY_RARE, availabilities. And, like me, you might enjoy running the little buggers down with your prop and landing gear.
     
    Just put the folders into your ground object folder and the GUNDATA.INI into your object folder and it will work. Hopefully someone will make some real WW1 infantry.

  21. Beutepanzer rear guns to AA

    Since two gunners in rear sponsons never see ground combat, this mod arms them with machine guns and gets them to target aircraft. This gives a nice dense 'trench fire' effect if you fly low behind the panzers in an allied craft.
    The rest of the tank's guns still work against ground targets.
     
    To install, unpack and place the .ini file into Objects\GroundObject\BeutepanzerIVF folder of First Eagles

  22. FE - simple AA Machine Gun mod

    No remodeling, or repaints. This mod adds heavy truck-mounted anti-air machine guns.
    They use Maxim MG, shoot very long bursts, have lots of ammo and since availability is set to very_common there may be two or even three per airfield. Maximum attack altitude set to 300. This adds a pinch of realism and lot of fun to low-level bombing. And luckily they are not as lethal as stock flak.
     
    Highly recommended to use with any mod reducing stock flak accuracy so that you'll be able to escape MG fire by gaining altitude without getting shredded by the cannons. Gundata.ini from AIMOD would do nicely.
     
    Installation: unpack in Objects\GroundObject folder. Copy Texture folder from 13pdrAAA to AAMG, and Texture folder from 77mmKFlak to GERMG. Machine guns will be placed on the map randomly.

  25. New formation for Attack aircraft

    This will show you how to create a new formation for all of your attack aircraft. It will create three Squads with six elements per flight. They will appear to be in somewhat of a Vee formation with slight differences in altitude from one another. This works for FEG and FE2.
