About This File

The German Siemens-Schuckert D.I was a direct copy of captured Nieuport 17s. The most important difference was in the engine. The Siemens Schuckert Werke (SSW) D.I used a geared Siemens-Halske Sh.I engine which produced 1800rpm. The spinner nose and open bottom cowling were necessary to help cool the engine. A bigger prop required a taller landing gear.

Problems with engine production delayed the release of the SSW D.I. The Albatros D.III was already available by the time the SSW reached the front. The Albatros was a much superior plane, and was less likely to be mistaken for a French plane. The SSW D.I only served for a short time on the Western Front, they served longer on the Eastern front.

My Siemens-Schuckert D.I includes a three color camo skin, a full set of number decals, a fully functional cockpit, and damage nodes for the wings. My skinning templates and a sound file for the engine are included in the download.


Historical Notes:
I do not have a sound file for the Siemens-Halske Sh.I engine, I am using Nixou's sound for the Le Rhône 110 hp engine instead.


Credits:
My thanks to Ojcar once again for making the excellent data.ini file for this plane.
My thanks to Nixou for making the sound file for the Le Rhône 110 hp engine.


Installation instructions:
For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "SiemensSchuckertD1" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. If you don't already have it, move the file named "Lerhone110m1" from my Sounds folder into your Sounds folder.

For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "SiemensSchuckertD1" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "SiemensSchuckertD1". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/SiemensSchuckertD1 folder into the Decals/SiemensSchuckertD1 folder you just made. If you don't already have it, move the file named "Lerhone110m1" from my Sounds folder into your Sounds folder.

Another excellent add-on aircraft, Stephan 1918! An obscure machine that few knew anything about, myself included.

Will work well on Eastern Front campaigns chasing its French-built, Russian flown counterpart, the Nieuport 17.

Its twin guns will make short work of that famous French fighter. Or... it will be relegated as a Jastaschulen mainstay, no doubt.

Quality work, as always!! :good:

Very nice Stephen 1918 and you have chosen a rare machine to model, - top marks for this effort. Hope you continue to produce some more German aircraft of this era, as I consider you to be one of the most significant contributors to the First Eagles series . Thanks and gratitude.

Many thanks for this one Stephen - always liked the lines on the SSW D.1 and the nose spinner. I look forward to carrying over my already-modded FM for a Nieu 17/SSW stand-in, for the eastern front, into this folder for your real SSW. Great stuff.

Happy flying,

Von S :smile:
