Check out the new MAW website, the upcoming third party mod for CFS3.
The website is still under construction partly, but you can see films of MAW in the "Media" section which are worthwhile checking out. Note that you need Macromedia Flash Player to see the streams.

Dissappointing is the Scenery section. Seems that giving 1,000 aircraft in their 1,000 variations was more important then building a real "world" and war-scenery for them to fly in. Hm,...not really surprised about that personally...just my 2 cents.

But you never know with what the third party wizards come up next, especially when the project is given from the closed team to the public community.

Sounds were always good in MS flight sims...

Considering that CFS3 is just a little older than FB all I can say is... it's about time... you have to give thise dedicated 3rd party guys their props.. wirthout them CFS3 would have been deadand buried a long long time ago.

Ok seems that the link doesn't work at the moment..it worked yesterday. Maybe they are building on the site, it wasn't finished yet.
I will post again when I see it's back up.

I mite load it up and give it a try. but honestly, there aint much that can be done to make CFS3 a good flight sim!...Yea, it looks all pretty on top...but the minute you lift the hood it's a clunky 4 banger running on 3 cylinders http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

The site is back up.

And yes...CFS3 has in game limitations that where never sorted. Can't be done, all hard coded. Among them, no mouse view in the cockpit, no working gun sights, no working bomb sight (a crosshair pointing down, total nonsense)..and a few others. They made me leave it. It has good things though, VERY good effects, good sounds, and a big map. And it can be modded, what those guys did. When having a heavily modded CFS3 you get a pretty nice game.
Dont use it for online though, that is terribly bad. (crash when out of ammo etc)

My Opinion.

Too be fair I should add that the most fun I ever had with CFS3 was with a third party add-on. It was a BoB add-on by Chairly I think http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif but had to give it up, performance was too hit and miss. Somtimes it would play great but would get choppy over time http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif (slid show) I'm hopping performance in the Med will be better with more desert http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Are all the planes on the hangar page flyable? If they are I will definatly reinstall CFS3 once more (even though I promised I'd never do it again)
