About This File
Note - This is a complete revision with new LODs, new skins, and new hangar and loading screens. I recommend you delete the older version and replace it with this one.
The Albatros D.II was identical to the D.I, except that the top wing was mounted lower and farther forward to improve visibility. The fuselage, engine, and guns were the same. Early models had two radiators low on either side of the fuselage, later models had the radiator mounted in the upper wing.
I have created both versions of the D.II. I put both radiators on the skins so the same skin can be used for both versions. The download includes two skins, a light camo and a dark camo, and a full set of personal markings for each plane. I have included my skinning templates for those who wish to make different skins.
My thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Albatros D.II.
My thanks also to Nix for making the sound file for the Mercedes 160hp engine.
The two versions can be installed separately or both together.
For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folders named "AlbatrosD2_Early" and "AlbatrosD2_Late" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. You also need to move the sound file "mercedes160m2.wav" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folders named "AlbatrosD2_Early" and "AlbatrosD2_Late" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create new folders named "AlbatrosD2_Early" and "AlbatrosD2_Late". Move the folders named "D" from the Aircraft/AlbatrosD2 folders into the corresponding Decals/AlbatrosD2 folder you just made. You also need to move the sound file "mercedes160m2.wav" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
