Thank you Orbyx for this detailed investigation. I look forward to more results. (I will most likely fly PE vanilla-style once I purchase it and will only add my FM mods per taste, via JSGME, since they only modify the relevant xfm files of chosen aircraft and don't tamper with graphics, objects, etc.). I will likely apply scenerybudgets and texturebudgets tweaks, if necessary, manually - as per my WOFF on a Mac post.

Welcome guys. I will look out for your FM MODs, when you release them.

Here some more screenshots from PE since the other screenshot thread is labeled UE and don't want to confuse folks.Wonderful game, for sure!

Yes, I believe it;s better to wait. A lot of mods for UE are still working with PE, but with the risk, that they overwrite some new parts.
Look at @BuckeyeBoB's (BB) optional cloud mod f.e.: The cloud-variability is bigger and one of the best mods for UE in my eyes. But the sky-grafik in PE looks well, so I will fly without the mod the first days / weeks. And @BuckeyeBoB (BB) wrote, he want to release a new version (thread WOFF PLATINUM EDITION - EXPANSION RELEASED!, page 1).

I will test during the next days Nibbios InFlight-Map, News-Mod4.5 from 77Scout, historical Victory Information 1.3 from Aris, Realistic Tracers Effects MOD V1.2 from JJJ65.

At all other mods I wait for more Infos or updates.

I've been using Nibbio's map with PE and it seems to be working the same as it did with UE.

You don't have to test my News Mod as the developers have added it into WOFF PE so it is now a native part of the program. Cheers!

Any map mod will work fine. You’re only swapping one graphic file for another.
Tracer mods should be good also if there only the graphic part or use only the graphic portion not a .xml. If it involves the .xml file you will surely lose something from PE.
Historical Victory Information 1.3 is also working just fine for me happily. Mandatory mod IMHO.

Bdp files are automatically renewed by cfs3 engine during the very next start of woff (in 3d) providing the date of related xdp files is newer than the date of bdp files. And the xdp files are always newer when mofified by mutimod.
So, no worry to use multimod.

Yes, it does work, but as I said, you're missing out on the new aces that PE adds as well as some changes to existing ones. The MOD replaces the BritishAces.txt, FrenchAces.txt, GermanyAces.txt and USAAces.txt files which contain the new aces. That's why I had to go in each of those files and insert a reference to the MOD files instead of replacing them with the MOD. Then I just copied over the whole Aces folder of the MOD into the WOFF directory. And it's working for me until Aris updates his Aces MOD to be compatible with PE.

I didn't know because I tried deleting the bdp files like I did with the ones inside the aircraft folder, however, unlike the aircraft bdp files, the guns, flak, etc... didn't get replaced. So, I assumed that it wouldn't get created either. If you have time are you able to please verify that the bdp files get updated in UE? Since I already overwritten the UE files with PE update, I don't know any other way to test it.

FMs released a while back and available at the following link:

https://combatace.com/files/file/16799-fm-tweaks-for-woffue/

Hopefully they work with PE since they only alter/swap the xfm aircraft files, unless PE has locked the xfm files from being altered. I look forward to your further tests.

VonS, appreciate your work on these FMs. ...enjoyed testing a bunch of them...no issues in PE. Will definitely keep them and hopefully, you'll have time to do more.

my favorite one is the albatros D.III (Oeffag MOD)

Bdp files are created from xdp files only and as soon as game loads its related 3d object (gun, flak, etc.). If not xdp file found, game crashes with error window.

Excellent news - thank you for doing the tests. I will happily move over to PE in a couple of months. Yes, the Oeffag D.III is a good one - nice climb rate (slightly better than for the 200hp Alb. D.Va mod) and good top speed too (about 200 kph). Austria-Hungary appreciated their D.IIIs, less lower wing torsion on them too than on the German-made v-strutter Albies.

Happy flying,
Von S smile2

Yes, I already tried deleting the bdp files for guns, flak, etc.. and the game threw an error message saying missing critical files. So, that's why I was saying it's not like the aircraft files where they get created again when you delete them.

Are you sure you deleted only bdp files? From my experience, the bdp files were always recreated.

yes, I'm sure and I will double check tonight. If you have time, please check WOFF UE and see if the gun/flak bdp files get recreated.

For testing purposes I have deleted "off_6pdr_gun.bdp" and "off_18pdr_gun.bdp" files. Both files were recreated upon running WOFF UE - cfs3.
