I like landing on a aircraft carrier in cfs2
Are they around in CFS 3 ?

Have not seen a carrier yet, as I believe most if not all of the carriers in WWII were stationed in the Pacific. CFS3 is all in Europe.

LAST EDITED ON Nov-08-02 AT 10:35AM (EST)[p]I with ya on the pleasure and challenge of landing on a carrier. I was recently in New York and, for the first time, stepped foot on a real WWII Carier, the Intrepid. It was exciting, but as you can imagine, I thought to myself, "There's no way the landing area is this small!" :-)
Back to your question, there are a two good options for being able to land on a carrier in cfs3.
Option 1: Somebody will likely make an add-on
For Combat Flight Sim 1 and 2, a few add ons were made, such as Battle for Midway (http://store.yahoo.com/fsc/batformid.html) and Pearl Harbor (http://store.yahoo.com/fsc/dec719pearha.html). There a (small?) chance these add-ons will work in cfs3 (with the old graphics in the ships), and there's a good chance these kinds of add-ons will be made for cfs3. Developers have to find the high-quality resources in cfs3 hard to resist.
Option 2: Try Importing the Ships & Aircraft from CFS2 or FS2002
Most often, you can important aircraft and, hopefully, other resources from a previous version of CFS, and keep in mind, there is an aircraft in FS2002 that you might be able to import. If you want to see it, it's in the San Francisco Harbor. A couple of resources that may provide ideas are:
How To...Turn FS2000 Aircraft Into FS2002 Ones
How To Get The Japanese Ships In CFS2 To "Work"
It's worth mentioning that the entire list of articles in the "Flightsim.com" Web site are worth looking at, "http://www.flightsim.com/cgi/kds?$=main/m-howto.htm".
None of these articles deal specifically with cfs3, YET. But, the past articles may help for now. I haven't looked in the cfs3 help or reference materials for this, but you might be able to find something under "importing" or something like that. If you are able to important a carrier, (one of?) the last step is to build your own mission. We're talking about mission builders in a separate thread.
