IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DOWNLOAD FILES FROM THIS WEB SITE AND SAVE IT TO A TEMPORARY DIRECTORY (EXAMPLE: C:\DOWNLOADS), AND THEN RUN THE FILE FROM THAT DIRECTORY. OPENING THE FILE AND RUNNING IT FROM THE INTERNET IS NOT ADVISED, AS THE FILE CAN BE DAMAGED OR CORRUPTED DURING THE DOWNLOAD/RUN PROCESS.

 

The BIGGEST difference that you will find between this Web site and others that offer downloads for the various flight simulations is that whenever possible I have attempted to create an "installation" program for the downloads...No more having to create folders, and then copying and/or moving files. The installation program does all of this for you AUTOMATICALLY. So, where possible, all you have to do is to simply double-click on the installation program and enjoy! I strongly encourage you to visit the Installation Page to see how this program works before downloading any of the wonderful add-ons from this site.

SEE OTHER AIRCRAFT EVEN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE PLANE OR IT'S TEXTURES

There is a setting in CFS2 that will allow you to "see" other pilot's planes and the plane's textures even if you don't have that particular plane. Here's what you do:

  1. Open the Cfs2.cfg file in Notepad.

  2. Scroll down to the [MULTIPLAYER] section.

  3. Change the "0" after the equals (=) sign in the following lines to a "1" as shown below:

     

    ALLOW_PLANE_MODEL_SEND=1

    ALLOW_PLANE_MODEL_RECEIVE=1

    ALLOW_TEXTURE_SEND=1

    ALLOW_TEXTURE_RECEIVE=1

     

  4. Save the changes to the Cfs2.cfg file.

  5. Make the file "Read Only" so that CFS2 can't change the settings back. That's it...

A very special thanks to BadJointscfs2 for the addition of step #5!

This is great for "squad" meets, as everybody will be able to "see" everybody else's plane and textures. NOTE: In order for this to work, especially in "multiplayer" mode on the Zone, EVERYBODY in the game must have these lines changed.

 

 

GETTING RID OF THE "UNKNOWN SOLDIER" TAG WHEN ENTERING VIA IP ADDRESS

I recently came across a way to get rid of the infamous "Unknown Soldier" handle that CFS1 and CFS2 create when you come into a game via TCP/IP instead of through the MSN Gaming Zone. It involves simply adding your handle to the CFS1 and CFS2 configuration file. Here's how to have your zone handle appear whenever you enter via TCP/IP:

  1. Open the CFS2.cfg file using Notepad.

  2. Scroll down to the [MULTIPLAYER] section.

  3. Look for the line: SP_PROTOCOL_ADDRESS=.

  4. Scroll to the end of the line and press Enter on the keyboard to add a blank line after this section.

  5. Type in the following, typing your actual Zone handle: SP_PLAYER_NAME=Your Zone Handle

  6. Save the changes to the CFS2.cfg file.

That's it...From now on, even if you enter a game through the IP address, you will always have your actual Zone handle instead of "Unknown Soldier"...Click here to see a photo of how the CFS2.cfg file should look like.

NOTE: The updates for the "collision bubble" below for the stock CFS2 aircraft will not affect the aircraft in any way on the MSN Gaming Zone when flying in a "restricted" room, only correcting the large collision bubble around each aircraft, helping to reduce the number of unnecessary collisions. Some anti-cheat programs like Fair Skies, however, may incorrectly detect and report the aircraft as a mod, when in fact they are not. The aircraft are "stock" in EVERY sense of the word, and do NOT provide any performance enhancements to the aircraft.

NOTE: Effects by Nibbio below should be installed in the following order:

1. CFS2 Nibbio's Effect 01 - Ship Smoke Oil Slick and Wake (200KB). This modification of CFS2 provides a few interesting little improvements: longer lasting ship fires, with higher and more voluminous black smoke; they look much more like the real thing; longer smoke from all ships smokestacks; smoke and steam from the smokestack of the USS Yorktown. And provides longer wakes for all ships and a bow spray effect for destroyers, cruisers, battleships and carriers (US and Japan). By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect. This should be the first Nibbio effect you install, and includes Nibbio's effect 1 and 3. Also make sure that in the CFS2 Realism Options, you set "Weapon Effectiveness" as "normal", else ships will sink at the first hit with no sign of oil.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

2. CFS2 Nibbio's Effect 02 - Torpedo Wake (128KB). Provides a better looking, more realistic and more efficient wake for aerial torpedoes. By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect. This should be the second Nibbio effect you install.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

3. CFS2 Nibbio's Effect 04 - Flak Damage (136KB). Attempts to model flak damage in a more realistic way. As a result, you can expect to be hit by flak more rarely, but much more seriously. The only price to pay is that you don't experience those nice blast waves as often as before. By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect. his should be the third Nibbio effect you install.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

4. CFS2 Nibbio's Effect 05 - Flak Splash (136KB). Enables a new graphic effect, water splashes from low altitude flak bursts. By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect. This should be the fourth Nibbio effect you install. IMPORTANT: The Flak Damage Effect must be installed before this effect!

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

5. CFS2 Nibbio's Effect 07 - Smoking Guns (136KB). Enables a new effect, smoke from aircraft machine guns and cannons. The effect is obtained by adding a smoke emitter to the muzzle flash effects. The effect is enabled for all aircraft, flyable and non flyable, human or AI and it has been successfully tested in offline play resulting in virtually no frame rate loss. The effect is also enabled on all bombers gunners' positions. By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect. This should be the fifth Nibbio effect you install.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

6. CFS2 Nibbio's Effect 08 - Engine Start Smoke (132KB). The original engine start smoke effect has been "enhanced" providing for more and longer lasting smoke. By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect. This should be the sixth Nibbio effect you install.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

7. CFS2 Nibbio's Effect 09 - Pilot Kill (304KB). Enables two new sound effects, designed to provide more feedback to the player whenever he wounds or kills an enemy pilot. By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect. This should be the seventh Nibbio effect you install.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

8. CFS2 Nibbio's Effect 11 - Vehicle Dust Cloud (140KB). This modification enables a new effect, a dust cloud for the CFS2 vehicles. IMO it's rather useful because it makes moving vehicles more visible when attacking them from the air. The cloud is enabled only for moving vehicles (the cloud is not active when the vehicles are added to a mission as infrastructure). By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect. This should be the eigth Nibbio effect you install.

CFS2 Rounds Hitting Ground & Rounds Hitting Water Effects (79KB). This file adds new "effects" textures representing bullets when they hit the ground and water. NOTE: The self-install program used here will create backups of all files replaced, giving them a ".org" extension.  By: GhostPony.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

CFS2 AI Aircraft Rear Gun Fix (53.3KB). This fix corrects the bug that prevents rear gunners to fire from the AI piloted Dauntless and Devastator. The bug was due to incorrect values for the limits of the gun's range of motion left and right. Thanks to Aviar and H.Flower for discovering and fixing this bug. By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program will create backups (Example: A6M2.dp will be saved as A6M2.dp.org) of all files replaced.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

CFS2 Burning Oil Drum Effect (84.6KB). This is an object that implements a burning oil drum. The object is listed in the Mission Builder as a static object, you can place it where you want, for instance you can use few of them to mark a runway at night. This file also includes a small mission that is used as an example of the effect's use (and as a shortcut for those that want to quickly enjoy the show). I used 10 burning drums to mark the Henderson runway, using larger numbers may slows frame rate. Start CFS2 and enjoy. NOTE: This effect must be installed AFTER the CFS2 Ground Troops & Pilot Kill Sound Effects Update above. Oil barrels by: Nibbio. Burning effect by: Giovanni "Nanni" A. Cignoni. NOTE: This installation program will create backups (Example: A6M2.dp will be saved as A6M2.dp.org) of all files replaced.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

CFS2 Val Rear Gun Update (33.3KB). You may have noticed that the rear gunner of the Val never pops out from the cockpit, like the rear gunner on the Kate does. Joe Stevens and Gerrit found out that this is due to the fact that the Val has fixed gear. This is readily fixed by providing a non zero extension and retraction time for the gear in the aircraft.cfg. By: Nibbio. NOTE: This installation program will create backups (Example: A6M2.dp will be saved as A6M2.dp.org) of all files replaced.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

CFS2 Atomic Bomb v1.1 - Part I of II (2.12MB). Now add the atomic bomb to the CFS2 arsenal! Includes a Boeing B-29 Superfortress aircraft. Also includes a mission where you can view a "sample" detonation, and a player-flyable mission where you drop a test bomb on the Bikini Atoll. NOTE: You must install both parts in order for the atomic bomb to function correctly. This installation will make backups of all files that are replaced, and give the backed up files an ".org" extension. Effects consultation: Nibbio. 3D model: Martin Wright. Shockwave effects/blast effect revisions: Bjørn Hjelmerud. Project oversight, management, development, 'atomic cloud' and principle blast effects, missions, historical data: Hans Castorp. NOTE: This installation program will create backups (Example: A6M2.dp will be saved as A6M2.dp.org) of all files replaced.

NOTE: You will experience a BIG drop in frame rate when the A-bomb detonates. The drop in frame rate will continue until the completion of the explosion/mushroom cloud. I have also discovered that the A-bomb shares .bgl files with some of  the standard bombs used in CFS2. As a result, you may get the "A-bomb effect" even when using "standard" bombs.

NOTE: Downloads from this page are for Microsoft© Combat Flight Simulator 2 ONLY, and should not be used in CFS1. If you are looking for downloads for CFS1, please click here.

CFS2 Atomic Bomb v1.1 - Part II of II (2.84MB). Now add the atomic bomb to the CFS2 arsenal! NOTE: You must install both parts in order for the atomic bomb to function correctly. This installation will make backups of all files that are replaced, and give the backed up files an ".org" extension. Effects consultation: Nibbio. 3D model: Martin Wright.

MISCELLANEOUS:

CFS2 Stock Aircraft Files (163KB). This is what I call my "Emergency Recovery Utility" for CFS2...This self-install program will install all of the CFS2 stock aircraft's original files, which include the aircraft.cfg, the air file, the damage profile and the .CDP file. If you have ever gone to the Zone and tried to fly one of the stock aircraft only to find that none were available, this ERU program is a life saver. Instead of having to completely uninstall CFS2, and then re-install it, this little program will re-install the files that most likely are causing the stock planes not to show up. This little program also includes the update that makes the AI, or non-flyable, aircraft like the B-24D Mitchell "flyable". Keep this little program handy, 'cuz you never know when you'll need it...By: Microsoft Corporation. Installation program by: AB_Lt_Cmd_Riker. NOTE: This installation program will create backups (Example: A6M2.dp will be saved as A6M2.dp.org) of all files replaced.

CFS2 Non-Combat Ships Update (48.5KB). If you have tinkered with the Mission Builder in CFS2 you may have noticed that non combat ships don't follow the waypoints you assign; they normally turn until they are heading north and then proceed straight. This makes creating missions with convoys a bit awkward. The fix is very simple, it's enough to place a gun on board the non combat ships and they will behave correctly following the waypoints specified in the Mission Builder. By: Nibbio. Installation program by: AB_Lt_Cmd_Riker. NOTE: This installation program now includes a batch file to install and remove this effect.
