    was hoping to be able to show you some more screenshots, but apparantly martin wright's mgrab tool is on strike at the moment and i'm trying to figure out how other tools work. still learning
    but my cfs 3 install and screenshot tools aren't very good friends......

    so here's just a glimp of another DornierDo17z from 2./KG 76 and an bf109e-4b of 9./JG 26 and a work in progress, a KG 54 Ju88a

    all textures for flyable version in 2048, ai aircraft will be in 1024

    new effort, some results....

    Do17z-2 U5+FS & Do17z-3 U5+GS of 8.KG 2 were shot down by Sqn Ldr Witold Urbanowicz on september 15th 1940

    The same day Do17z-3 F1+BS & Do17z-3 F1+FS both crashed on their return flight after having bombed targets in London

    Do17z F1+EK & Do17z F1+JK did make it back to France after the morning raid on september 15th 1940, but were forced to make a crashlanding. F1+JK was reported as being hit about 200 times.........

    Do17z-3 U5+CA was shot down on september 7th 1940

    Do17z-2 U5+KA came down a monthe earlier on august 13th 1940

    Do17z-2 F1+FH is one of the best known aircraft to be shot down on 15th september, some gun camera footage of this aircraft being attacked can be seen at about 12 minutes 30 seconds..... https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/i...ect/1060013903. you'll see the crew preparing to bail out as the canopy was jettisoned
    it's estimated that the aircraft was rammed by Ray Holmes only 30 or 40 seconds after the spitfire turned away

    Clive, does that mean you're getting back to updating BoB maybe to include the Blitz as well?

    Not sure yet James, there's some mods I'd like to do in WoTR but just not enough time for anything at the moment!

    Is WOTR going to be quite open to mods? I think everyone into CFS3 though should get it as useful stuff for CFS3 ETO/BoB anyway. I'm assuming besides being free, CFS3 is going to be more open to all modders plus not such a complicated gane play.

    It's not very moddable at the moment and will be hard to add new aircraft unless you can get right under the bonnet I guess. At the moment it's more interesting seeing what can be ported over into CFS3, the aircraft can be used (albeit the files need altering) and of course the scenery, buildings, vehicles and ships can all be used in CFS3.

    So all in all the mods will be what WoTR can do for CFS3 rather than the other way around for a while.

    That's sort of what I thought which is why it's worth getting.
