I have MS Combat Flight Sim 3 and think it's great, but I hardly play it because I'm really not into 'shoot-em-ups'; I love cruising at FL350 with over a hundred virtual passengers screaming in the back.

Maybe thats the answer Doug! It will certainly reduce the number of personal attacks on the bulletin board especially Squawk Box.
Create a special page for forthcoming events like: 'The Eagle v Snowman' and a virtual scoreboard.
I have it. Great game! But it is REALLY hard on the computer. I have a brand new computer and can run FS2002 on full settings, but I can't with CFS3. Its been designed for the newest of new graphic cards. Microsoft did patch some things up because they got ahead of themselves, but its still hard on on the system.
My first introduction to "online" gaming was Falcon 3.0. There was a local BBS (yes a BBS that you had to dial directly into with a modem) that ran a F3 compeition ladder. You'd make a challenge to the guy (up to two spots above you) work out the details for hooking up (F3 connectivity was enough of a challenge all by itself) and then report the win/loss to the ladder mod. It was hella fun.
I have the game, and it runs OK on my system (homebrew ASUS A7N8X Dlx, AMD 2400+, ti-4200 128 MB 8X AGP and 512 MB), but I wasn't really impressed with it. But I probably haven't messed with it enough.
I am probably jaded by the fact that I bought Battlefield 1942 at the same time, and overall it is much more fun, IMO. Not only planes, but you can drive around tanks, jeeps, subs, crusiers and even aircraft carriers (and of course, run around like an idiot).
Off topic, but have you guys seen the screenshots of FS2004?! Those clouds look totaly sweet, and now they form and disapate vs appear and disapear like they do now lol. Plus they are true 3d this time, not just floating pictures.
They also have 9 new historic aircraft, check it out!
Plus they finally fixed the ATC and AI traffic problems (thank god!) ohh ohh and taxiway signs so your not always lookin at map or need a pink brick road.
I'll have to say I'm probably more excited about this release of FS than any other. I've been complaining about the lack of proper weather simulation ever since I got FS4.
