The Futile Dweebs:A group of pilot volunteers who design historical scenarios. Their first scenario was the first Relaxed Realism scenario in Gamestorm's history, "The Battle of LeyteGulf". "The Battle Of Midway", which ran in June and July, was their lastest endeavor.
Scenario Aircraft Converter by the Kraits :If you fly in 3d
and play in historical scenarios, the Kraits squad has developed art files
that allow you to "re-skin" your planes with the scheme in which the aircraft
would have been flown in combat. Terrain Conversions are also available.
Art differs for each scenario. Screenshots with examples of the SAC
are located on Fidd's
Page. A website offered Sqrl, has alternative terrain
textures including a really neat euro hedgerow terrain:=) (Sqrl's
AW3 Terrain's Textures Page ).
NEW by the Kraits The Air Warrior Sound Manager (K-AWSM) which utilizes the SAC frontend but instead of art, this program allows you to change sound effects in the game.
The Scenario Masters Guild :A long standing group of pilot volunteers who organize historical scenarios. Their newest scenario, Operation Cartwheel is a two phase event, with Phase 1 being complete and now a part of the annals of AWHistory. The second phase will begin in 02/05/00.
Team Korea is a mix just plain scenario nuts who have come together to develop a scenario based on events that could have possibly occured between UN forces and the PLA in Korea, 1951. I'm proud to be serving at the UN XO for this scenario. Registration for Korea '51 will begin on February 18, 2000 and the scenario will commence with 2 Beta Frames on March 26 & 27 at 3PM. Frame 1 of this scenario is Sunday April 1 at 3PM. For more details, visit the Korea '51 Website .
Warnights:Meant to be a cross between a historical scenario and arena play, warnights occur, oddly enough, on Saturday AFTERNOONS. There are also EARLY Sunday morning Warnights to better serve Air Warriors who live in Europe (website:PacRim Warnights ). In a warnight, you are usually given 3 planes versus the unlimited planes you have in arena play. There is a start and stop time for scoring.

Gamestorm's Official Air Warrior 3 Help :Frame rates bad? Booted continuously? I have never had a problem tech problem with the game that I couldn't solve here. Beats me why it is so hard to find in GS.
