About This File
The Phönix D.IIa was the same as the D.II but with a more powerful 230 hp Hiero engine, which gave it better speed and better climbing ability.
My model of the D.IIa is based on my model of the D.II but with a different engine - which means all new .LOD files as well as a new cockpit (the engine is part of the cockpit in this model.) I have made a slightly different skin, new decals, and ojcar has made a different FM, so this is a completely new plane. (You do NOT need the D.II in order to install this plane.)
The skins and decals are interchangeable with the D.II.
I have included a set of letter decals so you can set flight letters in the Loadout screen, or the game will randomly assign a different letter to each plane.
The skinning templates are identical to the D.II, but I have included them here anyway. I have also included my .OUT files for the benefit of future modders.
My thanks to ojcar, who created the FM to capture the improved power and performance of this excellent Austro-Hungarian fighter.
For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "PhoenixD2a" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder.
For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "PhoenixD2a" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "PhoenixD2a". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/PhoenixD2a folder into the Decals/PhoenixD2a folder you just made.
