Default Getting back into Combat Flight Simulator 3, some questions

Hello

I recently re-bought CFS 3 for a WW1 total conversion mod.

However as I like both genres, WW1 and WW2, I am wondering if anyone here that might still dabble with CSF3 can advise as to what recommended mods ect will bring this old bird up to scratch, graphics, theatres, campaigns ect.

I also bought B-17 Mephis Belle expansion for it.

Are there any CFS 3 communities recommended to visit?

Any pointers appreciated.

Thanks,
G

MAW (Mediterranean Air War) was OK for WWII when I tried it.

Thanks Dowly,

Is there some CFS 3 Modding or community site that is still active, or where would most of those mods be hosted?

Thanks,
G

Sorry, no idea of any sites. Not a big fan of the game. You can always try SimHQ.

Great thanks all. I did manage to get the Memphis Belle one already. Looking for the others for a decent price.

Firepower for CF3 is good, you can drop atom bombs.

I belive Mosquito Combat Europe also gives you a 1945 campaign like the 1943 one.

I'd take CFS3 over IL-2 anyday, sure CFS3 is lacking a bit in the graphics department but unlike IL-2 CFS3 has a couple of things that IL-2 doesn't. More planes,guns,bombs,dual throttle control,no sniper tail gunners(by defualt), and the thing I like most of all HUGE MAP!!!! You can fly a mission from bases in England to bomb Berlin and go back nonstop. Plus the true dynamic campaign you can end the war before 1945! I ended it in 1943. Too bad Microsoft never took CFS3 to the level of IL-2 in graphics.
