About This File
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.
My thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Albatros D.I.
For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AlbatrosD1" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AlbatrosD1" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "AlbatrosD1." Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/AlbatrosD1 folder into the Decals/AlbatrosD1 folder you just made.
