I didn't play RoF since 2016 ( if I remember correct )

I installed again and i want to add some mods, but I'm not sure which ones

What would you recommend for better textures, skies, clouds, water, cockpit, etc ??

Thank you in advance

I see the game version is now 1.037 and that many mods were released earlier on.

I'm guessing some of the earlier mods might be redundant, due to improvements made in the various updates released by the dev team, but I can't find a thread that really clarifies what is still relevant for 1.037.

I see out of all the persons that have been especially active for the game, that you are still on here sometimes.

I'm especially interested in any mods that improve gameplay in some way or another, and to understand exactly what they do.

I'm a game developer myself and so will start comparing modded and stock files etc to get some idea, but any info you might have would be great.

I'm especially interested I guess to hear if the AI Pilots and Gunner mods are still relevant, and which ones to use.

Wish 777 could have done just a bit more with the game and will likely make the jump to Flying Circus over the XMAS break but it's also missing so much that I'd like to see.

Those golden days of MICROPROSE, DYNAMIX and ROWAN SOFTWARE seem so great looking back, as the games had to be a lot more complete IMO, without the ability to patch etc.

Cheers, Jack

The development team just added planes and fleshed out some bugs since release. Old mods still works fine and makes the game better.

I would get the A.I mod (more challenging dogfights)
the cloud mod (light version since the normal ones makes way too much and big clouds making dogfighting and navigating a pain the butt)
Then the realistic damage mod (you need to shoot a lot more holes in the wings or plane to destroy it)
Then more landscape graphic mod (I do like the original though, but it's nice with some variation)
The reduced tracer mod is good (makes it looks more realistic)
Also the removal of ambient flak mod (now when you see flak in the sky it means there are planes nearby)
I would also install the historical skin pack found here on the website (search for it). It makes the game more interesting since you will know which planes belongs to your squadron and other plane variations. 
These are mods I can't play without. The rest makes the game more immersive and better to look at, but doesn't alter gameplay much.
