Hi Dresam, no thread for ReShade in FE2 currently - I will post my presets in a separate thread in a day or two, or perhaps under the FM tweaks thread for FE2.

Greetings,

Von S :smile:

These are superb screenies ... I know little about this game - but am a huge fan of WoFF ... I'm seriously considering a purchase ... Thank you!

Your skins are always a work of art. Of course, I'm can't wait to try them on in the game.

And let's bump up this thread with a few fresh screenies from the new year - I hope to find more free time in the future to return to modding occasionally for FE2 since this, I think, is still one of the best WW1 flight sims when fully modded. Graphics look fine, the FMs are in many ways more realistic/balanced than in RoF - and nothing beats the hands-on action of FE2 with its good AI. While the WOFF series may be the gold standard for campaigns, FE2 really is the go-to sim for quick combat or single missions. And where else can you fly the Morane Saulnier Type N (with the exception of the now ancient Red Baron II/3D).

Happy flying all,

Von S :smile:

Hello fellow FE2-ers,

Uploading some latest screenies here of FM testing currently happening for an upcoming ver. 10.0 of the FM/realism pack for FE2 - always a pleasure to return to FE2, the tweak-friendly sim that keeps on giving.

NOTE: improved ReShade shaders for FE2 (see relevant link for those) loaded in all representative pics. below.

Cheers all,

Von S :smile:

 

110 hp LeRhone upgraded Nieup. 21 (Lewis) does splendidly against mid-war types and dismantles wonderfully too

04.thumb.JPG.43afcef27ef1d25a31afec1cad128d85.JPG

 

I sometimes like to land and watch a dogfight in progress, for further evaluation of how a tweaked FM handles against the enemy

05.thumb.JPG.e3702472fe8cfbf5bf0e9351357a2d49.JPG

 

Julio Junqueira's US pilot with the light blue scarf sits well in the 110 hp Nieup. 21

06.thumb.JPG.50e26096d82fbb1b5bb0ebda9a4b5873.JPG

 

Close-up of an (en)tangled tangle, where I "got the wind up" and the Nieup. 21 was also dismantled while in air (sorry no pics. of that excitement)

07.thumb.JPG.243b21aa5f150af788984b13b064e907.JPG

 

Proceeding to the SPAD XVII 300 hp: it works well in slash n' dash attacks at low altitude too, and may be used to get away quickly from a problem (suggested skin is the FrenchTan1 available for the stock, 220 hp SPAD XIII that has no hp-rating in its folder names; extract relevant skin folder using Mue's excellent CAT Extractor)

08.thumb.JPG.e9c660cfa387344bb66d3ded198878dc.JPG

09.thumb.JPG.3105e6bbbac96aaa537ebce3f24cdf76.JPG

 

The SPAD XVII however is much more suited for attacks above about 2000 m alt. or so, as with the example of this poor Pfalz

12.thumb.JPG.aa269791e19a0d8c96d37290c640332b.JPG

 

If you lose an aileron or two on the SPAD XVII, or the rudder (even with ailerons still intact), might I suggest then avoiding tight maneuvers (here we have a flight mate falling into an irrecoverable spin after attempting a tight turn with an aileron missing, during a dogfight)

13.thumb.JPG.780ab5c87ae9a5475e60c309871365bc.JPG

 

A very close shave with a couple of Flying Razors :biggrin:

Geezer's pilot no. 8 fits well with the SPAD XVII

16.thumb.JPG.9f4265669300d6f645b28a4daa33f0a2.JPG

 

Working on the FM for the early, Benz-powered (150 hp) Albatros D.I that carried only one M.G., to save weight (Benz skin will not be supplied with the ver. 10.0 FM pack; it's a simple Paint3D re-coloring of Stephen's skin for the regular Alb. D.I and that can be found in that folder - I've used a shade of brown, opacity of about 40%); Geezer's pilot no. 6, by the way (green scarf fellow that I frequently like to use as a pilot), in the Benz Alby; recommended is one of the available Daimler sounds for the type, makes for nice, soothing flying

Awhile back I sent Geezer some pix for Blaine Rawlings, but they were either not sufficient or he lacked the time.  In any event, I was writing of a new set of FE2 pilots to be released by JulioJunqueira (see quote included in previous post)...

But on another topic, 

Capture2.thumb.JPG.c04bd642ba9a6fca9f5c71cf067ee94a.JPG

Are these old or new?  Where is the link?

Hi Silberpfeil,

Improved shaders for FE2 (and SF2) are located at the following link (they are the shader presets that I released a while back, but I will include them in the ver. 10.0 FM update pack since I have too many separate packages currently under the support thread for the FM pack). All FE2 pics. that I have been posting over the last several months (year?) are with the ReShade custom preset loaded up. [EDIT: shader preset files for FE2/SF2 now included in the big, ver. 10.0 FM/realism package for FE2.]

In terms of those various pilot models, the only ones I have are the seven or eight models that Geezer made available privately about two years ago, and that I may have PM-ed you a while back - that package includes the Bruno Stachel model. Julio did release a Max Immelmann pilot for the Eindeckers, also the US pilot as available in each of the three Nieup. trainer packs that he released (link here), but other than that I don't think that any new pilots have been recently released.

One of Geezer's pilots was released, as allowed by him, publicly with the BE.2a FM upload (see the support threads for the FM pack - last page, p. 8, of that thread), and his pilot with the green scarf was also to be released publicly (as blessed by Geezer) with the Bleriot model and FM (unfortunately that project is currently frozen until/if Swambast manages to retrieve his lost Bleriot files).

Cheers,

Von S :smile:

And one more post with a few other, representative pics. of latest tests for a ver. 10.0 of the FM/realism pack.

Cheers all & happy flying,

Von S :smile:

 

While tweaking the FM for the Snipe, it was also necessary to re-visit the Bentley BR.1 Camel (150 hp) too - both that Camel and the Snipe now have slightly over-compressed engines

22.thumb.JPG.7c27996da932a731e8851538b93cb87c.JPG

 

The Bentley Camel, performance-wise, is now nearly identical to the Snipe, but more slippery (which can be a good thing too)

23.thumb.JPG.7c8517829e2cb39f880e9d736827df5c.JPG

24.thumb.JPG.2c44e465b5b2aba79dffdb95435c6e14.JPG

 

Watch landings in the Bentley Camel, to avoid spinning and losing a wheel, or two

25.thumb.JPG.01818fe60ec2f963febcf80292abee0b.JPG

 

Action shots of the tweaked Snipe tangling with that craft of "beaucoup speed" (the SSW D.III, model by A-Team in this case)

NOTE: a big thanks to Eugene for the excellent Snipe and Camel photo-realistic skins. Also, the improved shaders preset that I am using in FE2 has been re-packaged with the big, ver. 10.0 FM/realism update pack (previously it was available as a separate download on the last page of the support thread for the FM/realism package).

Some representative pics. of the latest tweaks - looking over the stock Strutters in FE2 and currently including various changes. The "Sop 1A2" and "1B2" will largely have similar data inis, since they are attack and bomber variants, although I've included a more unreliable interrupter (Challenger) mechanism on the 1A2's front M.G., as well as for the "Strutter 110." More info. and performance specs. and details will follow in the "Read Me" file for the ver. 10.5 FM addon package.

Cheers all,

Von S :smile:

 

Tweaks to the included cockpit.ini from the older Sinbad Strutter package feature more correct pilot seating position near the leading edge of the bottom wings

img00002.thumb.JPG.b395b4f0e6914fcde4111ece9e1572ad.JPG

 

Views toward the front, with the tweaked (Sinbad) cockpit.ini (that uses the stock cockpit position on the Strutters)

img00003.thumb.JPG.146e9be9e2e5e8554f4278734d2c760c.JPG

 

Alternate, tweaked cockpit.ini file will be provided that works with Stephen's excellent cockpit from the B.E.2c series - view towards the front (slightly lower than with the Sinbad cockpit.ini but you can still barely make out the sights on the M.G.; otherwise Stephen's cockpit doesn't fit well)

img00010.thumb.JPG.c0ea3213e69dcd347110a0aa0bb46436.JPG

 

Further modified in Stephen's cockpit.ini is removal of several components such as the cockpit "cage," the B.E. series windscreen, etc., for it to blend a bit more effectively with the stock Strutters (don't forget to include the cockpit folder too, from Stephen's B.E.2c series, in your Strutter aircraft folder - if you choose this option - otherwise the tweak is incomplete - if you prefer the position/views of the tweaked Sinbad cockpit.ini, use that one instead - but that one works without a cockpit folder, so you get no dials in the stock cockpit)

img00011.thumb.JPG.acec48c11b636e5ad45df8daff7ec89d.JPG

 

Addon package will feature FM overhauls for the RFC "Strutter 110" and "Strutter 130" (thanks Eugene for the great Strutter skins)

img00005.thumb.JPG.fa77e65b8fff086bdec8747714878e22.JPG

 

Also included will be overhauls of the FMs for the French-built "Sop 1A2" and "1B2"

img00009.thumb.JPG.4e33457ee80d9e50305dce4a4ad1c379.JPG

 

Have decided to include a French-built "1B1" as well

img00006.thumb.JPG.c2ad3b8895f0df1c8f9acd0df37a1b8e.JPG

img00007.thumb.JPG.a6185d7f35ac46018489450c5bc28115.JPG

 

Also a Dux-built 1B1 FM, for the eastern-front FE2 flier

img00004.thumb.JPG.541ca3306b24782f1216309b9800d339.JPG

 

Enjoying some performance tests with the French-built 1B1 FM (has a higher ceiling than the 1A2 and 1B2, among other things; have as well tweaked the FM on the 1B1 around a 120-125 hp LeRhone upgrade - and will include that for the 1B1 Dux too - the 1A2 and 1B2 will be 110 hp on the other hand, as well as the Strutter_110, while the Strutter_130 will get the 130 hp Clerget - should be plenty for variety of Strutter types that way)
