Sopwith Camel v1.0 by AMT

Aviator Mod Team Presents
The Sopwith Camel F.1 v1.0



Download AMT Sopwith Camel v1.0 (Mediafire, 7zip, 18.56mb)
*N.B. I will post another link in coming days*

Another mod that had seemed to disappear into oblivion. Luckily a few of us still had it floating around and with Sani's permission, it was brought back to life. This aircraft represents multiple firsts. To begin with, it is the first of the many promised WW1 aircraft to finally make it to public release. Second, it is the first public aircraft to use the new 'Rotary' engine model. And finally, this aircraft was one of the first modding experiment to test the games limits in poly count and textures. This is one of the most highly detailed models in Il-2. The side-effect of this is that it is not skinable but it is already a beautiful sight! A huge thanks must go to SAS~Sani who did the vast majority of work on it, having imported it from another simulator and then developing the fantastic flight model!

Some notes on flying it:
- Before take-off, put chocks in and ensure magnetos are set to 1+2 (this selects all cylinders)
- Try start. If fails first time, spin the prop again until it starts
- Once engine running, set Mixture towards rich
- When running smoothly, release chocks!
- Whilst this aircraft has no true throttle, you can control you power in two ways: leaning out mixture and selecting less cylinders (in this case, magneto setting 1 or 2 selects 1/3rd of cylinders). I'm still investigating the historical accuracy of the magneto selector but appears some Camels could select groups of cyclinders, others couldn't.
- The Camel was renowned for killing young inexperienced pilots due to it high torque and power in dive. Be wary of the torque on take-off and watch your speed in a dive!
- To blip the engine, press the 'Toggle Engine' key in quick succession. If you leave the engine off for too long, you will loose too much speed and the engine might not restart
- Once the engine dies mid-air, that's it. You can't jump out and restart it.

Features
- The famous Sopwith Camel WW1 fighter
- Highly detailed, non-skinnable model
- Rotary engine modelling
- Le Prieur Rockets. N.B. They are highly inaccurate and only effective against balloons and large aircraft. Near useless against ground targets
- Bailing out disabled!

Installation
1) Please ensure that you have a working copy of DBW/DBW1916 or have the SAS AI Engines Hotkeys Mod working with SAS ModACt for 4.101m
2) Extract the archive to your MODS, #SAS or #DBW folder within your Il-2 modded install
3) Find air.ini, plane_ru and weapons_ru, and add lines as per readme

Thanks team! Certainly a nice build and considering the attention to detail in only the first release I very much look forward to the others.

Love it, absolutely love it. DBW 1916 Fokkers don't stand a chance.
Holds a special place in my heart because my first toy plane, which I still have was a Sopwith Camel.

Should I activate DBW1916 in JSGME to make it work?  Currently I have 20% CTD with "memory cannot be read" error while trying to start the game with Camel. DBW1916 isn't enabled.

Thanks anyway.

SOLVED I erroneously put a folder with wwi markings in the folder with plane's mod. Now works perfectly :)

Hi, not working on mine. it crashes after you select the plane and weapons and click fly. I have a SAS modact 2.72 modded with no dbw. I followed the readme and added the engine hotkeys mod and did the air and plane and wep edits. Any ideas?

Thanks, I tested it and its excellent, both in its flight model and its appearance!

I dont know if you've seen this interwiev with the designer: Thomas Sopwith Documentary (1984)
