1) Well, the effects packages from http://www.theghostfiles.org/ are a nice place to start.

2) The B24 Guy's overhauled aircraft are also a must-have: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/index.php?lloc=downloads&loc=downloads&page=downloads&FileUploadName=The%20B24%20Guy

3) Xavierb's EAWWII airfields are also a 'must-have': http://www.simviation.com/cgi-bin/syb2.cgi?section=cfs&file=eawwii_full_2006.zip

I will let some of our other astute observers fill in some more blanks. :d

Kofschip, I dont know if this is the right list and I hope Miami doesnt mind but I do have one of miami's list's from another thread.
I was going to leave the reposting to him as he is the defacto archivist of all things cfs2 but here's what I have.

Post by Miamieagle some time ago.

My tips on how improve European sceneries.
I installed McClelland UK sceneries.
1. http://www.simviation.com/cfs2scenery3.htm
I added Ian Elliot London upgrade and Mathias CFS1 airbases o my European Theater.
2. http://www.simviation.com/cfs2scenery8.htm
Then I added the European Coast line to my install.
3. http://www.simviation.com/cfs2scenery11.htm
I also install the BOB selfinstall scenery by Gary Bums.
I also went downloaded Simouthouse Europe Mesh at their backup site.
5. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/master_ftp/cfs2/cfs2-scenery/
You can either install Sim-outhouse or Netwings sceneries Mesh. They both are of very good quality. Its up to you.
6. http://www.netwings.org/library/CFS2%5FScenery/
part two: http://www.netwings.org/library/CFS2%5FScenery/index-2.html
Last but not least I recommend you down load McClelland European Scenery for CFS2. Its a must if you really want to improve this program sceneries up to grade. With his sceneries you will not only have Cities and forest but also roads.
7. http://www.aer.ip3.co.uk/scenery.htm
You must install this European Texure upgrade. Its the best one in my humble opinion.
8. http://www.mlk-airbase.wz.cz/msfs/scenery/texture_swap.html
You get a cities upgrade right here in this Web. It will not make the cities look more real from 1000 feet and below but it make them look better from 1000Ft and above.
I hate CFS2 clouds. Thanks to our members there are some new clouds available as well.You can get the one from Sim-outhouse call Stiz Clouds or LW clouds. Its you choice. I have install them both in different install that I have. You also download a new Sun.
I forgot Stiz European Water. This is also a must.
9.http://www.sim-outhouse.com/index.php?lloc=downloads&loc=downloads&FileT ype=cfs2-scenery&page=downloads&ammm=15&pap=2
Europe has neve looked so good in this program
You can also add Seasonal Texutures at Avsim.
They are call cfs2hw.cfs2sp,cfs2su,scfswi,and cfs2fa.Look for them through the search engine at AvSim.Warning you will have to do it Manualy, but its real easy and lots of fun once you figure it out.
This are Genenral upgrades. There are more specific area upgrades that are also available for you pleasure.
Check out this Web dedicated for the improvement of European Scenery.
I want to Thank this Website and the others like Netwings and Sim-ouhouse and all the Sceneries Developers and smaller Websites for Helping us enjoy this program with your talent. Without out your help this program would not have been the joy it is today.
PS my next post on this subject will be on the Pacific Theater.
On to the Pacific Theater.

Posts: 355 This are my tips on how to improve your Pacific sceneries.

This is what I recommnd to improve your Pacific Theater scenery.
First you should get Stiz wonderful World Texures.
1. http://www.simviation.com/cfs2scenery17.htm
Then I would get the Pacific Coast upgrade.
2. http://www.simviation.com/cfs2scenery11.htm
Following that install CFS2 Tropical Texture.
3. http://www.simviation.com/cfs2scenery12.htm
You can also install Stiz Pacific Ocean Texure by Stiz.
4. http://www.simviation.com/cfs2scenery17.htm
You can also fix the Pacific Ocean with Stiz Pactex 1 to 5 folders. Remember the Pactex is just for fun. You can the different shore looks as you with Pactex folder 5.
5. http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/brigstock/CFS.htm
The best Japan Scenery available is this one.
6. http://flightinfo.ens.ne.jp/tmurakam/terrain/
Or you can try this one if you like.
7. http://members.at.infoseek.co.jp/fsclubnet/
You can also install the Philippines sceneries I install. Its of very good quality.
You should also install eawwii Asia 360 Airfields complete and Japan Mainland airfield package of 93 airfields.
You can improve your Burma scenery by installing Lowengrin Burma Dynamic Campaign and installing his Burma scenery. Beside its a pretty good Campaign.
You should also get Maskrider Scenery packages. They are one of my favorite. They include beautiful Pacific Theater Airfields.
I also recommend Stiz or LW Clouds at Sim-ouhouse. They are quite a improvement over the stock clouds. You can also get new clouds at:
You can also install Hawaii scenery from this Website.
Alaskan scenery.
Go to its CFS2 scenery section and you will find there.
A simple explanation I found on how to activate new sceneries.
Now I"m enjoying this Sim more than ever and I hope you are as well. Now you can fly all over the World in what ever Theater you want with visual style.
I enjoy flying as much over the European Theater as the Pacific Theater. I hope you do to. They both give me a special kind of joy.
Now you do not have any excuses. You can not tell your family you will not take them to Europe and visit London or Paris. You can"t say you can not effort to fly to the Far East. Its available with a Joystick and a good plane. You have over one thousand plane to chose from. All you have to do is wait until the war is over. Other wise you might be shot down. LoL
Just enjoy it as much as possible.
This is not the only good sceneries available for this Sim. This are my suggested sceneries only.

Guys, this is great and I think that a lot of people, including me, will be very thankfull to you.:applause::applause::applause:

Jagdflieger, can you change the title to something like: CFS2 "must have" add-ons and post it as a sticky? As you know, this subject came up many times in the CFS2 Forum over the past years. In the meantime I am going file it away in a number of different locations, just to be safe.:d

October 30th, 2008, 02:00
This is a fantastic thread, only just discovered it. Marvellous tips - thanks all. :)

A question if I may. I've been trying to d/load "Africa and South Asia Water" by Richard Ludowise from Avsim with no luck. It keeps dropping out about 2/3 the way through. And as Avsim doesn't let you use a download manager like Getight it's becoming a real pain. :banghead: Anyone know if it's available on any other sites? Cheers. :)

October 30th, 2008, 03:04
It's a sticky now.:wavey:

October 30th, 2008, 11:57
Send me a PM with your addy Pips (Priller?)........and you'll have them all!

October 30th, 2008, 15:11
Thanks Hey_Moe, you are a gentleman.:wavey:

October 30th, 2008, 18:52
Don't forget Rami's superb explanation on how to set up European scenery.

October 31st, 2008, 09:00
Your avitar. Is that the battle conn of a BB or a carrier? I know that it is not a small boy!:icon_lol:

October 31st, 2008, 15:02
Sorry, I neglected to label it when I downloaded it........but here's the other shot, maybe a sailor can tell us.:wavey:

October 31st, 2008, 16:29
That is a picture of the bridge with the captain's chair on a merchant ship. The avatar is the picture of the rudder angle indicator. The equipment leads me to believe that it was a ship of my sailing days or earlier, say around mid to late 1950's, but it can be a lot older too, like in the 1930's.:d

RE; the avitar.
Obio; I think what you may have downloaded is a view of the bridge of the last remaining operational Liberty ship, The SS. John Brown. I did find on the internet some bridge pictures of a man at the helm of it and in the lower left hand corner can be seen the corner of a wooden chair.
The rest of the picture appear to be the same.

The Victory class ships also used the round portals but none of them , I believe, are still around and operational. There may be some in some mothball naval reserve fleet backwater., but I doubt they would be in any clean shape.

November 3rd, 2008, 07:30
Excellent job!! I'd been to the SS John Brown's site a while back. The Liberty's also had an exposed wheel on deck, I believe my pix were of the inside one called the "battle bridge."

There is one remaining "Victory" Ship check here:


Happy Sailing!!!:ernae:

November 3rd, 2008, 07:42
Sorry that I mis referred to Obio re; the avitar. Found some more photos of this class of ship here;


This site is, as you can see, from the Jerimiah O'Brien ported in San Franweirdo:icon_lol:
