  1. SAML S.2 Revised

    When I made the SAML S.2, I actually tried to convert my Aviatik C.I into A SAML. I was focused only on the small details and didn't notice the big differences. When Ojcar was making the FM, he pointed out some major problems with the fuselage and wings and sent me some reference material. But I was in a hurry to get it uploaded so I made some tweaks and uploaded the plane anyway. During the last six weeks, I have pretty much rebuilt the entire plane. Today I uploaded a a revised version with a more correct fuselage and gunner station. I have also adjusted the placement of the wings and lower wing dihedral, along with many other revisions. I also corrected two gauges in the cockpit so they now give more accurate readings. The revision has all new LODs, revised skins, revised FM, new cockpit LOD, and revised Cockpit.ini. If you are using FE2, you only need to replace the Aircraft folder, the Decals folder is the same. Thanks to Ojcar for his help and continued support. Thanks also to Crawford for reminding me.

    The formation identified in the Nations.ini has to also be identified in the Formations.ini - if you replaced your Nations.ini and it's calling for "Formation.Fighter = Fighter3" then your Formations.ini needs to have a "Fighter3" defined in it. Also - depending on what Nations.ini you have, Austria-Hungary may show up as " K.u.K. Luftfahrtruppen" which is the Austrian name of their Air Service. In the Nations.ini, check the "DisplayName" line.

    I was flying a recon mission in my SPAD XI when I was attacked by a group of HB Star Strutters. I tried to turn under them, where they couldn't bring their guns to bear, but one of them managed to knock out my engine. My gunner got one in the belly as he passed over and he went down. I was able to make it a nearby valley and land, but was behind the Austrian lines. My wing man got away.

    I'm still enjoying Gterl's Italian terrain. I've spent the last two year's pretty exclusively in Galicia; it's refreshing to fly some planes I haven't flown for a while. (Emld's Hanriot HD1, my SPAD XI, Laton's Ansaldo SVA5)
  5. why am I exploding when...

    Lofty_c - as I recall, you are running FE2 - since the north sea terrain is working, it may be a problem with how you made the other installs. It might be best to remove the others and remake them. There's a thread that shows how to make multiple installs here: https://combatace.com/forums/topic/81423-setting-up-multiple-versions-of-fe2/?tab=comments#comment-652121 When you have a problem it helps us answer if you can remind us what version you're using, what terrain you're using, what plane you were flying, etc. The more you can tell us, the better we can understand the problem.
  6. Skin pack for Caudron G4

    Excellent skin, I like the level of detail.

    I must have hit his fuel tank because moments after this shot, the Nieuport exploded. My Phönix got clipped by a wing and I went down too.

    Gterl's Caporetto terrain has inspired me to dust off some planes I haven't flown for a while. (my Aviatik-Berg D.I, my Hansa-Brandenburg C.I, my Phoenix D.II, Laton's Phoenix KD.I)
  9. Pomilio PE Uploaded

    No, sorry. It means I'm hoping to spend some time actually playing the game!
  10. Pomilio PE Uploaded

    If I ever get back to the Spanish Civil War, I'll certainly make a Heinkel. But I've been neglecting the Real World since early November and there are things I need to do there. Also, to be honest, I want to spend some time flying in the Eastern and Italian Fronts.
  11. Pomilio PE Uploaded

    Today I uploaded the Polmilio PE - another Italian two seater to fly in Gterl's Caporetto terrain. The Pomilio PE was introduced in 1917 and was used for recon and light bombing missions. My plane features a fully functional cockpit, two skins with decals, and a small bomb loadout. My skinning templates are included. My thanks to Ojcar for making yet another great FM for this plane.
  12. View File Pomilio PE The Pomilio PE was a two seat, Italian general purpose plane that entered service in 1917. It had a 300hp Fiat 6 cylinder engine with a radiator mounted in the nose of the aircraft. A fin under the fuselage, around the tail skid, helped improve the stability of the plane. The Pomilio PE was used primarily for reconnaissance and was armed with a fixed Fiat-Revelli machine gun over the wing with a ring mounted machine gun operated by the observer. The Pomilio could carry a light bomb load with 3 bombs mounted on the each side of the plane. My Pomilio PE includes 2 skins - a green/yellow speckled camo, and a 3 color camo - each with appropriate decals. I have included a small bomb loadout. I have included my skinning templates with the download. Historical Notes: - My Pomilio PE uses the later style fuselage with a flatter deck behind the pilot because it allowed me to give greater range to the gunner in the game. - I have taken extensive liberties with the speckled camo skin version of the plane. When the camouflage was applied at the factory, it usually covered the metal panels around the engine. The speckled camo scheme was not applied to the top of the lower wing. The national insignia on the top wing did not usually extend into the aileron. The 3 color camo version is much more accurate and is the default skin. Credits: My thanks to Ojcar for making the data.ini file for this plane. Installation instructions: For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "PomilioPE" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "PomilioPE" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "PomilioPE". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/PomilioPE folder into the Decals/PomilioPE folder you just made. Submitter Stephen1918 Submitted 01/08/2019 Category Other Entente Aircraft

  14. SAML S.2

    Mike, I haven't seem this in my install of FE (checked in both FE1 and FE2.) In your case, it looks like the game isn't recognizing the gunner. Check your data.ini and make sure that something hasn't been changed - especially the names in the SystemName area under Fuselage, and the names of the nodes under Gunner in the crew section.
  15. Are FE1 and FE2 identical for add-ons?

    You can assume that just about everything for First Eagles at Combat Ace will work in FE1 I use FE1 most of the time and just about everything I've downloaded works fine in FE1. Geezer has made some planes recently that only work in FE2. VonS has made some data files that are intended for FE2. I think everything else will work in both. Most of the modders here are making things that work in both. Everything that I have made so far will work in both FE1 and FE2, but there may be different installation procedures.
