What is the Sheep's Pen?
It occurred to me that while people who currently
fly SDOE would know exactly what this site is about, others who stumble upon
this site will have no clue what this is all about! So allow me to inform you.
The Sheep's Pen is a website that is trying to
centralize all the links to files, patches, planes, user sites etc. for a Flight
Simulation called Fighter Squadron: Screamin' Demons over Europe by Activision.
Haven't heard of this sim you say? Well that's because it was released in 1998!
So why are their still people flying this old flight sim and why are there
so many files on this website? That's because Fighter Squadron was designed as
an "open sim". This means that the users in the community have the
ability to add patches, aircraft, terrains, ground vehicles and so on.
Thankfully for us the SDOE (short for Screamin Demons over Europe) community is
one of the most innovative and creative around. What started as a WWII flight
simulation, has turned into an entirely separate WWI mod called FS-WWI, SDOE
also offers drivable ground vehicles with manable positions! We
also have one drivable PT Boat now so SDOE has gone to all frontiers. Land, Sea
and Air, two World Wars and I even left out the jet fighters. Yep we've got a
small assortment of Jet Fighters in this old sim as well, and I'm hosting some
of those right here
So there you have it. You know what SDOE is, and
you know what the purpose of this site is! If you don't have SDOE go and buy it
now, it's practically free! Then try out these amazing user created mods
contained within this site.
