    Don't get me started,but this is one thing CFS3 seriously lacks is Japanese fighters and bombers along with seaplanes. That is the main reason why i got back into CFS2 and IL-2 '46. Everything is well covered in those sims. Maybe someday someone will tackle this for us,but it seems unlikely. My favorite would be the J2M3 Raiden-(Jack). Love those Ki aircraft though,especially the Ki-84. Thanks for bringing this up. Love the PTO ! Regards,Scott

    Not counting a number of subvariants of each except the -27. These are not repaints of similar aircraft.

    Hi Nigel, the ones you don't have are the ones Corrado offered up a few years ago - they are probably downloadable here at SOH, but if not, should be on his website?

    Cheers - I haven't actually been to look. Corrado's aircraft were brilliant for CFS1, pretty good for CFS2, but... need refreshing for CFS3, shall we say!

    yes, the modern skin maestros (yourself included) make all the old textures look tired! There are some exceptions in stock and older textures. As Graycap has mentioned, some original skins look terrific with Ankor's shaders, even without a bump map. A good example is the Firepower Me410 summer skin. All the fastenings stand out crisply, the specular sheen seems to be just right (well on my monitor, anyway).

    There are some terrific aircraft for the PTO in CFS2. Wish if there is a way to covert some of them for CFS3 it would be fantastic ! Is it difficult ? Is there a lot of work involved such as air files and such ? Just wondering...

    Yes, it is possible (see as a very good example the Handley Page Hampden), but yes, it is also a lot of work. Much more than air files etc. I've been wanting to convert some CFS2 ships to CFS3, a much smaller job (especially as the models are already in GMax format). But I find that while on chemo it is too much for my addled brain.
