    CFS3 if you have the time, energy and ability to install all the mods which we've all put together. If you want WW1, the CFS3 freeware add-on "Over Flanders Fields" is first class Over Flanders Fields while the soon-to-be-released Mediterranean Air War 'MAW' Mediterranean Air War for Combat Flight Simulator 3 includes all the latest stuff, including new aircraft, perfected flight and damage models, new weather, complete new geographically accurate theatre, etc, etc.

    ...It May be old but it's still 'BOLD' :rolleyes:
    Prob is I do not know if you can still 'purchase it'
    CFS-2 ROCKS!!! So many mods/planes... It'll take years (if you want) to install 'em all!!!

    I'll agree with Les..Il-2/Forgotten Battles/Ace Expansion Pack/ and Pacific Fighters for the PC.. I have CFS I,II,and III and I never play them because they look unfinished and poorly done.

    For Il-2 there are thousands of planes you can download as well as hundreds of missions. It also has a thriving Online community as well. I've made hundreds of skins for it myself and love the flight dynamics present within the game..It's as close to a simulation as you can get..

    Heres a shot of what I mean, the skins are mine and the ground textures dont look like a Jackson Pollack print which CFS does..:cry:

    Cheers and happy hunting

    Just great. I love the one on your signature too.
    Here are shots of my personal CFS1 'Dora', as well as a repaint depicting Gerhard Barkhorn's mount. They're not as nice due to CFS1 limitations but still my favorite bird in that game.

    .......IF you have a slow(er) PC machine IL2 (the original) works xclnt as a 'dogfighter"

    .........and CFS2 has a great "mission builder", and many "fronts", as well as there is a large group over at SIM-OUTHOUSE that keeps it alive with scenery. skins etc

    ........IT IS NOT THE SAME GAME(As the original) ANYMORE:D

    .......and as for earlier games EAW(european air war) is immersive and also still has a large following

    .......but for a more powerful rig its IL2/FORGOTTEN BATTLES/ACES/PACIFIC FIGHTERS as a classic

    Gotta agree with u, and as a previous owner of CFSII, the IL-2 series is waaaay more enjoyable to play for the layman...

    Download new planes? For IL-2? Joke! Let Oleg SELL you them!

    You want to download planes with accurate FMs, use CFS3 with Avhistory.org 1% aircraft.

    I have CFS II, IL-2, B-17, Aces High...

    The one I like to play is European Air War. Found for $10 at a Gamestop and seem drawn to it all the time. May not be as flashy and customer driven as the others (not knocking them) but for a first timer, EAW is good, cheap and will get you started.
