There is no 1915 without early c**p planes, so why not convert a Fokker E.III in something else?

It's a Morane H look-a-like, with alpha cutting where needed, wheathered Aéronatique Militaire markings, and a brand new machine gun to catch those pesky Fokkers!

(and.. yes, i miss a proper Morane Bullet. yuck.)




2016-10-09 UPDATE!!! ------> DOWNLOAD

- Final, reworked version

- Updated Alpha cutting

- more "Moranesque" style on front fuselage
- more accurate Aeronatique Militaire 1915 style (no flags on fuselage, it's a "generic" skin)

I voted yes, but to be a proper Morane-Saulnier type H you should remove the machine gun.

Interesting attempt, but unfortunately the alpha-tweaking has resulted in a number of "open edges" on the rudder and tailplane similar to what happens when you try to shave off the rudder on the Albatros but get a little too aggressive with it.  Given what the devs said about some of those earlier examples, I doubt if this one would make it through their quality checks.

Thank you HillBilly  :icon_e_smile:
Yes, the real type H was unarmed but i tried to gain a generic entente monoplane fighter, with "Moranesque" style

Rgr that Panthercules! that's a risk, but worth trying: E.III rudder was too much "german", the edited one totally changes the overall feel.

so, finger crossed for the poll and devs choice, as i almost have other "Moranes" (RFC "H" and AM/RFC "N") to submit :)

Thank you!  :icon_e_salute:

Well, it IS an E.III, in game: slow and sluggish and uneffective against german 2-seaters :)
We can only use imagination, and fly it like a generic early war monoplane :)

Good job and all that, really Salute !

 

But I have to say i don't really see the point of it being included in the game if it's going to be EIII vs EIII..

Maybe the Devs will see this and give us a couple more early.. if not in fact mid-war planes to enjoy.. :P

Thanks, but do not remove the gun because you will get a strange empty cowling. Btw I do fly this plane when flying the eastern front, that MS can be found at the check six forum. This is a French forum but Google translate will help a lott, this could be an handy to compare that plane to yours.

Please keep on.

Dutch2, don't worry, it's a fighter, the gun is here to stay :)
I currently run ROF with latest C6 modpack, but without aircraft modifications, i'll try the MS then! of course, i still need a working E.III

Still waiting for "SAS1919" hehehehe

S! to all

Looks good! I would move the Morane Saulnier logo to the front of the cowling though. :icon_e_salute:

Dutch2, started a Pfalz E this morning, with C6mod alpha layer, it looks good! Will post some pictures later :D

B24, too much time has passed, your "bleriot" started my trials with alpha editing, thank you again! The MS logo is common with typeN layers, as front cowling is alphacutted away :)

I have no idea on how to skin, but could not trim the cowling "Alpha" much in the same way you trimmed the rudder and elevators? :icon_e_salute:

I was thinking more like this, the cowl trimmed to yellow lines, I don't think you can add any like the blue line. It would look more like the common MS H.

Yes, it can be done: my pfalz will have this cowling shape (of course only with yellow line), this MS is more open because to be honest i started it as a spinner-less Bullet :)

Hi guys! :)

The "morane-hack" skin is almost ready: i have to repack and reupload everything, some flu this week and the work slowed down a bit hehehehe

There are some differences, mostly in alpha-cut and front fuselage part, more "generic" look.

I don't suppose there's any way to turn an R.E.8. into a B.E.2c?

Interesting work and noble effort, but unless you can somehow fix the too-aggressive cuts on the alpha channel for the tail it's not going to be able to be approved for inclusion in a skin pack, if there is another one   (edges look open both from a trailing plane's perspective and from the cockpit looking backward).
