    Is there any interest still for the PTO?

    See there are quite a few hits on the stickies for the PTO uploads. Seems to be a pretty good interest in the expansions so why no new aircraft ? Would love to see some more Japanese aircraft available to make things more interesting. Is there any in the works ? Have some added payware Japanese fighters but some more attack aircraft or bombers would be great. Also hope one day to see the Raiden fighter. Just wishful thinking.... Any news ? Thanks,Scott

    Just my two cents, I think PTO has better missions than Rising sun!

    I meant both PTO expansions. Solomons and Rising Sun. I enjoy both but play Solomons the most.

    PTO Campaign

    As someone who enjoys campaigns, I managed to get a simple campaign working for PTO. Plenty of activity along the frontline on the islands of the Solomons. Unfortunately the lack of shipping lane vectors in the Terrain set kills the immersion for me. Ship spawns with groundtype=direct instead of groundtype=shippinglane only work in the Mission mode, not in the campaign mission mode - an annoying CFS3 quirk. Even facilities with shipping activity built in (eg Valetta harbour in MAW) only show the activity of ships in Mission mode, not when the facility is overflown in a campaign mission.

    Only static ships in the facility appear when overflown in a campaign mission.

    It is possible to get invasion fleet facilities to show up in the campaign, but the ships are stationary.

    Agree that the missions available are great!

    Back in the day a group of guys from here used to fly the on-line missions and it was a blast. Everyone had head sets and used Team Speak to communicate. Many a night the wife would come down stairs to my office around midnight and burst through the door of my office, scaring the s*&t out of me! It was immersive to say the least.

    PTO and Rising Sun

    Iv`e put both the Installs in storage after playing all the available missions,until more action is forthcoming they`ll stay there for the time being.
    My main CFS3 is still ETO Expansion and i`ll sometimes gravitate to MAW,this Sim needs more missions to make it a regular.
    All the best fellas,

    Even though i find myself playing IL-2 a lot more lately i still enjoy firing up my CFS3 PTO installs and playing some "old" missions. Seems all new again. Don't know if we have any more mission writers anymore but some new ones would be most welcome. Solomons and Rising Sun are great, with their limitations, to keep playing . Now play mainly short QC missions in the PTO and still have fun doing something different with CFS3. Just wish there was more aircraft to choose from.....(old record) .

    I still like to start pto RS even for a,few qc's in a different theatre, even though a few addon, re installing to do yet. I have installed pto Solomons,but plan to as I like to keep a copy of every cfs3 version produced running. Mad on cfs3..lol.


    Might look at WOFF and WOTR too
