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 Patch for FS-WWI Plane Pack 5 resolves many bugs and adds new content. Please install this over an existing FS-WWI Plane Pack 5 setup and extract it to the root "Fighter Squadron" or "FS-WWI" folder on your PC. You will not lose any controller settings, graphics configurations or Pilot info by installing this Patch. This Patch can be applied to the stand-alone Plane Pack 5 file install, the Plane Pack 5 All-In-One EXE install and the Plane Pack 5 All-In-One DVD ISO install.
