Welcome to Fighter Squadron WWI's "Plane Pack" series. A "Plane Pack" is a convenient way to get all of the latest planes, ground units, and missions, etc. This plane pack also lets you fly on-line over the internet. To fly with other people on-line, your aircraft must match the other player's aircraft or you will get a mismatch error. This makes the game more fun and avoids pesky cheaters. See the "More Info" section to read more about flying on-line. FS-WWI Plane Packs and Patches are the culmination of large amounts of work by diverse groups of talented people. Each plane has been built with care including the 3D modeling, painting, flight modeling, and damage modeling. These aircraft are on a never-ending journey of improvement, each individual plane at its own stage of completion, so feedback is very helpful and desired! The contact info for feedback can be found in the "More Info" section above. Also, you may wish to visit the on-line forum to help contribute to the progress of this art called flight sim.

To Install: For this to all work, you MUST install SDOE fresh. The setup is too integrated to install all of this over an existing install of FS-WWI. You will over complicate things if you try to install this over an existing FS-WWI install. If you do a fresh install, TRUST ME, it will be a breeze...

The install options you have are listed below. Each is listed in the order you should install them in. I also URGE you to READ the readme files. There is very valuable information in there that is to your benefit. I made these readme files to make both your life, and mine a lot easier.

Install Option One:

(From a fresh install of Fighter Squadron: Screamin' Demons Over Europe)

Please remove the game CD from the drive before continuing on to these next steps

1. (665kb) Install the 1.5 Patch to your Fighter Squadron folder and run the game once to be safe.

2. (29.3mb) Install the Latest FS-WWI Themed Patch for a WWI-only game.

3. (6.24mb) Install the FS-WWI Nations v3.0 Pack

Install any other terrains you might want BEFORE proceeding to the next step.

4. (119mb) Install the Somme and Snowy Somme v3.0 Pack

5. (555mb) Install the FS-WWI Plane Pack 5

Note: If the install seems to hang just give it time, it has to uncompress a very large file. At the end there is an option to install the FS-WWI Parfile Update. This should go into the Media folder of where ever you installed Fighter Squadron to.

6. (77.8mb) Install the FS-WWI Plane Pack 5 Patch v1.0

7. For on-line play, please download the latest version of Hyperlobby

Settings and Tweaks:

I have put together a document which will help you tweak FS-WWI for your system. You can find it here: Getting the Best

Von has put together a nice FS-WWI keyboard commands file here.

In regards to system requirements:

FS-WWI works on a pretty decent range of systems. The better the system the better you can scale up in the graphics and texture size department. The whole game installed takes up about 1.30 GB of disk space, and with the texture cache that collects about twice that over time. The older and slower the system the more you will have to scale back on resolution and texture size. The amount of system memory you have makes quite a bit of difference in game performance.


We hope you enjoy flying FS-WWI using Inertia's OpenPlane game engine. In our opinion, OpenPlane is THE engine for WWI flight!
