Combat Flight Simulator 3 Tips and Tricks
An overview from Colonel Doody Duty
This game is nothin like any other sim, but these rules may apply to any game you choose.
The main rule of thumb is always be cordial and courteous. The players in this game are usually adults, so it takes some finesse
to be proficient. Besides piloting skills, you must be adept at handling the other players of the game to your advantage.
Here are some important things you should know.
These will help you win nearly every time.
Once you get the hang of the sim, you will be accused of cheating. When that happens,
just type Hmmmmm.Moi??? Then hit the Esc key. Go back to the ready room, change your name to something like Black_Death and
change your plane to Snakeyes Bad-Ass KillsEverybody Spitfire and proceed to smoke their butt.just out of principle. Vendettas
are a good thing in this case.
Sometimes, the host will say that landings are safe. It should be honored. However one thing
you can do is hang around the airstrip and wait for someone to begin their approach to land. Come in on them broadside and

and type on the numbers of your keyboard. It will come out something like this: *%@%&$^%$* . This will be perceived as
a formal cuss-out and generally your adversaries will get the point and realize you are much smarter than they are and be

few pilots from Japan.You may have
inadvertently typed, I've got doody all over me, and
I'm wearing nothing but a thong. These
Japanese pilots may respond favorably.
