    I know this comes up fairly frequently, but I haven't paid attention in a while. Is anything on the horizon? What is currently the best to play? I can't get my old copy of RB3D to run, so...

    Apart from teh Knights of the Sky Gennadich thing which seems to have died on the vine...

    ... not much. There's something called Wings of War (arcade, apparently), First Eagles (Strike Fighters engine, so arcade), the CFS3 WWI mod (not even going to bother looking up title).

    There's also this, which I'm pretty excited about, but it's a shooter:

    If you want to get Red Baron running, go here and they will have you up in no time. RB is now a downloadable, with heaps of mods and still has a regular online community.

    Also note the most dedicated group of core advocates to keep RB3D alive:

    The Society of WWI Sim Artisans

    Those guys really put in heroic effort for years to fix the worst cracks and expand the game.

    Though that URL seems dead, KOTS is alive and kicking and still passively scheduled for release 2nd or 3rd quarter '08.

    From some of the screens posted (as well as one fine model ported for FSX) it should be all us WWI buffs could hope for.

    Warbirds III had a set of WWI planes as far as I can recall.

    Over Flanders Field Makes CFS3 enjoyable, IMHO.

    Good to hear it's still in motion.

    I believe they've worked pretty hard on the mod, I just can't take that game anymore.
