Try dropping your "Effects" from "Unlimited" to "High" and that should solve your problem. FE2 does not use "Unlimited" Effects very well.

Very well done! Solved. Fantastic terrain, fantastic campaign ... thank you all folks!

 

A "real" east front now is needed.

First class job Gterl, we are all in your debt! Keeping FE/FE2 at the top of the WW1 pack!

 

Downloading the terrain and campaign now. I need to check if I have all the necessary planes and get any I am missing but after that I'll attempt to showcase the new campaign in a Mission Report.

Have to say, this is an amazing new theatre, it looked great in the screenshots posted in this thread but actually flying in it has to be experienced, to be believed...the hills ARE alive, and the valleys, and the mountains, and the forests. Scenery like this would look great in FSX.

 

And as for FIGHTING in it, well, it's just spectacular and thrilling. Now you have to avoid flying into the side of a mountain in the middle of your dogfight! Being surrounded by great scenery - not just like a carpet below you, but all around you, on your own level and above, is exhilarating and more than a bit scary. Recovering from a spin is now much more dangerous, and forced landings are going to be a bit tricky!

 

Have only tried single missions so far but it is amazing! Fantastic work. Campaign next!

Yes that's FE2, Gterl. I'm about to start a proper campaign to check everything is working for me and will post a debrief in the Mission Reports section sometime in the next couple of days.

First installment of my campaign report is up!

 

http://combatace.com/topic/80879-campaign-report-gterls-italian-front-for-first-eaglesfe2/

 

Suffice to say here that this terrain is everything I expected from Gterl's screenies, and then some. And the campaign is a perfect complement to it. I don't remember having such an intense experience in FE for a long time, if ever!

Hello everyone, I'm new to Combat Ace & First Eagles although I do own ROF,BOS & OFF and am quite passionate about WW1 flight sims.  I had not come across this amazing Italian front Mod before and as soon as I saw it I just had to buy the FE sim and join here to try this work of art. The guys over at the ROF forum know I'm quite obsessive about wanting to see an Italian front in ROF which seems highly unlikely at this point.

 

So you might imagine how utterly gobsmacked & delighted I was to see this amazing Italian map,accompanying planes and campaign!  :bowdown2:

 

I have purchased FE2 & downloaded the Italian Map/Campaign and hopefully all the correct planes although I cannot locate the AlbD3OAW, could some kind soul point me in the right direction for the required aircraft download please? Haven't tried to install anything yet.

 

I'm really hoping I can get this all installed and working as the images in this thread are simply stunning! What mods would folk suggest I use to improve the experiance,My PC is pretty solid so should cope I hope? I understand I'm quite late to the party but am thrilled to have found this and hope to be flying round these glorious Alps very soon! Thankyou for this magnificent work folks! :give_heart:

I believe the Albatros DIII (OAW) is a stock aircraft (which if that's so, means it should be listed in the drop-down list of flyables in the 'single mission' option). It's distinguished from the sim's DIII, as you would expect, mainly by the rounded rudder and offset radiator.

The real Austrian Albatrosses are the Oef versions, which you can find here, if you haven't already.

Thanks 33LIMA, as usual I was foxed by the obvious! :doh:  Just reading thru the forums & trying to get familiar with the game file system before attempting to install all the addons. I've wanted to fly an Austrian campaign and especially fly a Phonix D.II in the alps for so so long! Spinning an out of control computer Star strutter  into a mountainside would also count as a personal dream accomplished also! I'm now up and running! :flyer:

 

          Thankyou gterl for all the hard work and passion that you obviously put into this beautiful map and to all the guys who created the wonderful and very rare Italian and Austrian aircraft!  :frantic:

I'm glad you like it....by the way....I'm still adding/changing stuff on it

- Railwaybridges

- More ships

- Various ground objects

- Small aerodromes (like in the 'Flanders' topic)

- A second Italian map with the Piave river as frontline :biggrin:

Great to hear your still working on it. I'm so much more fascinated by the Italian front than the Western Front....probably as I knew little about it until a few years ago...but also the stunning and varied scenery has attracted me along with the wonderful pilots & planes that flew there.

 

Would be great flying a campaign trying to defend the port of Trieste from massed flights of capronis in 1918. Also flying a 55j campaign at Pergine 1918 would be great at the time of Kiss & Kasza. :give_rose:
