Well i'm very impressed with this addon.

We all know that CFS3 is something close to POop....but the guys at OFF did a great job and very clean. The scenery is completly different very very Il2'ish.
last night i did modified the FM to be as smooth as Il2 or FSX and with track ir 6 dof and i really enjoyed it..
If you have CFS3 download this addon it's free.

Well while I appreciate the massive effort that went into phase one I didnt stick with it long.The download is MASSIVE and there were bugs with the download system itself so a guy sent me it on cd (very kindly-great community!)I found it was still very CFS3-ish ....I know not a very indepth review -and self apparent-but should be enough for most.
Is the new version better?Scenery and flight model were two of the main weaknesses versus IL2 I guess ...so if theyve been improved could be good...

I did DL it when it was first released.... enh... it was OK.. I havent tried the new thing yet and I probably won't. I'd rather do the simulated WWI stuff with this series (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/45410763/m/4041055835)..... I just prefer the look and feel of this series to anything MS has done that I have tried thus far... I find that inspite of all the "great" work that these guys have done... not to take anything away from them or detract from your post at all mind you... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif but the fact that you still had to go in and tweak the FMs a tad.... that means that, for this flight sim junkie..... it will remain OFF my list.

I downloaded Phase 2 last week. Certainly a huge improvement over P1. The DH-2 is a beaut. The AI seems a wee bit better too - friendly AI I mean. The enemy still just turn to port with the occaisional zoom. FPS are better, and the interface is more polished. If I had Track ir, it'd be quite diverting. But with the hat switch as the only other option, it is like stirring wet concrete.

Is the FM still CFS3? Is there any torque? The first version I tried was still CFS3.

I tried the first phase too, and it is fun to play WW1 scenarios but CFS3 still seems to lack some of the immersion level I'd like to see, and the ground graphics in phase 1 meant that ground attack was the same sort of unsatisfying experience as stock CFS3. Janes WW2F still wins out over CFS3 in this department.

The nice thing about CFS3 is the add ons for multi engined bombers (Lancaster etc) but the bomb sights are very primitive which then sort of spoils it all again.

Now a WW1 mod of EAW for air-to-air (not air-to-ground - EAW does not excel there) might be good as the EAW immersion and AI is still among the best.

Terrain better than il2 a mix between FSX,IL2,and BOB ...Yeap! and I weight my words.

It's a blast on Bombers, they shoot, they bomb...and and 6DOF

Take a quick look i will post more but for bombers guys it's a blast..

The MAW team built a whole new theater so I guess they made it.

Actually I meant the European terrain in the B17 videos linked to which looks a lot better than the stock CFS3 terrain. The MAW terrain is nice too! Overall the graphics in the clips looks better than CFS3 ever did on my system!

The Euro terrain looks pretty stock to me or maybe has Winding Mans freeware tweek.

I think that the available hardware is finally catching up to the real game requirements.

MS really BS'd everybody with the system requirements when they released the game.

Well, how's the FM now in Phase II OFF? Is it still CFS3 or have they made it into something like IL-2???????????!!!!!!!!!!! The whole world is wondering. I can't wait to see what they did with MAW.

The wooded areas (as much as I can tell from the video quality) looks better than the stock terrain.

Took a look & I have WM's CFS3 terrain package installed. Its very similar to what he did for OFF.

Thing is the OFF terrian itself can be installed in total into the base CFS3 if you like that better.

I'll look around first and see if it seems worth going through reinstallation of CFS3, firepower and downloading 17GB of additional files to make it look ok! :-)

I am extremely curious to see what the MAW people did with the CFS3 FM.

Watching those water-bound floatplanes reminded me why I'll never re-install CFS3: CFS3 just "can't get it up." Whoever said roll on KotS .. a big AMEN to that, bro. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Looked no better nor worse than the toyish water handling in IL-2 (no accounting for wind direction, no spray, etc).
