Excellent, thank you very much, really appreciated. 8)

I had a CTD at 20% in my main 4.12.2 with ModAct 5.30, however, tried in DOF and all is well. ;)

It might be your aircraft uses something not available in my main install as I have very little WWI stuff in there.

Take care.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Albatros D.II Early: Update 1:

Some updates to the Albatros D.II Early 3d model:
-The shape of the pilot cut out in the upper wing is more historically accurate now and has more natural rounded edges.
-Light issues on the upper wings has been corrected.
-Upper and lower wings and ailerons have been re-mapped to the default skin file, so they can be re-painted in the usual way. The default skin has been updated with appropriate wing textures. This means old skins are not compatible any longer! But I'll release som skin updates later on.
-The wires now look round instead of the old squarish cross section.
-Damaged wing with ribs showing moved to correct place.

First version:









Updated version:

Excellent work vanOben !
That angular cut out has been irritating me for ages......

Q: Was your fix easy to do ?

I ask because there are quite a few angular cut outs in DOF that would benefit from your skill  ;D

Once again,many thanks for your work

Cheers

Hi Alfie

Do you mean the changed shape of the cutout or the rounded edges?

My estimation is that this update took about 120 hours totally. But that includes installing and figuring out how to use 3ds Max and Maraz exporter, which took many hours of trial and error.
I also had to learn how to re-map the wings, which I hadn't done before in Gmax.
Doing similar changes the next time on another plane would of course be quicker.

Best regards

Hi

I had included some unwanted files i the download, a new version is now uploaded!

Thanks to Willyp, who informed me about it!

I've also uploaded a update version for B.A.T. V3.5 Musketeer, since the Albatros D.II Early is a part of B.A.T. V3.5 Musketeer, only the updated files are included in this download.

The new files can be downloaded at the IL-2 page on my site.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Best regards
