At last we in the FS-WWI developers group bring you FS-WWI Plane Pack 5. This free add-on to the flight simulator Fighter Squadron: Screamin’ Demons Over Europe is a total conversion mod to convert Fighter Squadron (Or SDOE as we in the community like to call it) into a World War One flight simulator. The area of conflict takes place mainly in the Somme region of France circa 1914-1918. With 54 flyable aircraft, two flyable balloons, one flyable Zeppelin, 8 drivable ground vehicles, over 450 Training missions and 185 Campaign Missions to choose from FS-WWI has a lot of content to offer!

This past summer was very busy for me, so not much headway was made on this upcoming mod. However, since late August steam has been picking up and I have some progress to report. All of the 3d meshes are by Lewis aka LesterBoffo with tweaks, remapping and all of the coding by me.

The 1912 Eastbourne Monoplane:


The Santos-Dumont 14-bis:


The Farman III:


The La Mouche:


The Early Dirigible:


Lewis and I are planning a release to be within the next couple of months. Stay tuned!

Questions for View/Edit keyboard.inp under the Control Assignment Editor in the "Engine" section.

inpThrottleAnalog = JoystickSlider1 : 0
; inpThrottleAnalog = JoystickAxisZ : 0

inpThrottleUpDigital = UpArrow
inpThrottleDownDigital = DownArrow

Do I need to remove the semicolon, and should I change the zeros to other numbers? If so, are the numbers for the Slider1 and AxisZ the same or different? So far I tried using the number "100" alternatively for each or both, and could only get a starting throttle of 10%. However, the Z axis on my joystick which controls throttle, would not increase throttle, and neither would the up or down buttons. My present laptop is without a number keypad, and I wonder if a number keypad makes a substantial difference.

Hello! Switch the semicolon around so it reads:

; inpThrottleAnalog = JoystickSlider1 : 0
inpThrottleAnalog = JoystickAxisZ : 0

No need to change the 0 at the end or the digital throttle settings. Not having a number pad is the problem. Use the - and + keys instead in-game.

Pressing F7 to switch through station modes on the Russian Ilya bomber (F6 to activate them), I discovered the overhead target screen. However, when leaving the cockpit station, the bomber proceeded to quickly dive and disentigrate right after I released some bombs. Help!

Hello! Try pressing Shift F6 before leaving the pilot position. When you are in the bomb sight position, you have control of the aircraft as well. So if you leave that station to man say a gunner station press Shift F6 also. Shift F6 gives the AI control of your aircraft (When in the pilot, copilot or bomber seat) before you jump to another station.

Hope that helps!

Okay, that enables me to perform the action for a short time. If I remained over the target for too long, the same thing happened. Another thing I have trouble with is the throttle: pressing "+" or "-" on my keyboard simply doesn't change the engine speed.

Ok, is it one particular mission this happens in? Or every mission? I will look into it further. For the throttle, try using the number pad. Do you have a throttle control on your joystick and are using that? If so, the - and + will not work.

Ilya - Stationary disentigration on Heavy Bombing (Training) and Albert/Might of the Czar. Caproni - Heavy Bombing (stationary). I Tried a bit of Albert/Sons of Mars, but the Caproni disentigrated only when the joystick axis moved dramatically. Handley Page - less trouble on Heavy Bombing mission. My joystick has no throttle control, and I'm using a laptop which as no number pad.

Ok, there were some problems with those missions you mentioned. I fixed them, and the fixes are added to the Plane Pack 5 Patch that was just released.

Thanks! I will check out those missions. Since you are on a laptop, you may have to press the Fn key and then the - and + keys in blue for it to work as a throttle.

Ahh, I finished downloading it (finally!). The installer was fancy (good music, but I won't spoil that!). Seems like there's some major compatibility issues with Vista, though. That's understandable from an older engine. I'll try and see if there's a way to get it playable.

Hello!

The installer came with a Controller Assignments Editor. You can edit the joystick inputs with that. :) With Vista, you might need to turn on Compatability mode for Win98. What maps are giving you the worst problems?

Might be just certain maps. Other ones are working fine (I really like the wind sfx). I can't steer the plane, though! I keep crashing. Is there a way to play it without a joystick? The control preferences menu doesn't show very many options. :o

edit: just found the keyboard config app. on your site. I'll try it out.

You can also setup the mouse for flying. For that you will need to manually edit the keyboard.inp file in the 1.6.0.6 FS-WWI Themed Patch folder under your installation directory.
