About This File
If you have found it frustrating that many enemy planes, even inferior ones, seem to be faster and are able to stay above and/or ahead of you in combat, you may want to try this mod. It prevents computer-flown ('AI') enemy planes in Campaign missions from enjoying the performance advantage they get from flying at the plane's empty weight, while player-flown aircraft, more realistically, take account of pilot, ammo and fuel/oil loads.
Not compatible with other Flight Model mods; likely to be OK with Damage Model mods.
See Readme for full details.
What's New in Version Version 2.0 See changelog
- Based on multiple sources, several OFF aircraft data files have significantly incorrect loaded weights; Version 1.0 corrected some of these (SPAD 7 & 13, Sopwith triplane), and this version 2 corrects the others (Fokker triplane, DVII, DVII OAW, EV, N.11, Pup, RE8). This seems not to have had any adverse effect on how the AI fly these planes.
