Yup. It's gonna be awesome. Won't be out until mid 2008 though so don't hold your breath.

It'll be worth the wait though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

if you have CFS3, you can download OFF, which is a total rework of that game. Aside from Knights of the Sky, it is about the best WW1 sim out there.

Is it? I've heard that OFF is all pretty pictures and an FM out of a children's book. Not that I've downloaded it, just saying.

LOMAC is already out...and I'd be happy (or happier, rather) with 4.09 to hold me for the next 6-9 months. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Not the orginal LOMAC - I heard there was a new one in the pipeline ?

4.09 would be cool as well.

I've been also been playin FSX:wings of power 2 and BOB:Wings of victory.

The later is really good and AI is excellent!

I think there is an add-on in the works for LOMAC, but then again I'm not keeping up with it at the moment. Black Shark?

I really tried to enjoy it in the last 3 monts but dang. How boring it is to fly alone even in those big furballs over the chanell http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif.
No matter how i tweaked and made the missions it still felt so empty. Nobody to talk to, nobody to laugh at my landings, nobody to shoot down but some planes controled by few bits of my puter. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
Whitout the online communication and fun I lose interest in games so fast.
KOTS online should be tons of fun tho. I can't wait. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

It's based on the CFS3 engine, what do you expect? However, that says nothing about the mod - The FM's seem excellent to me (Never flown a Spad or a Fokker DVIII, so I can't say how they should fly!), the AI is pretty good, and the graphics, well, the graphics are from CFS3. The dots are impossible to identify outside of 5 meters without the tags on, but besides that it's pretty fun to play.

I still have yet to get Flaming Cliffs. I've been waiting for some extra cash to upgrade my PC before I start in on LOMAC.
