All it takes it one neat new add-on the spark an interest in flight simulation again. For our columnist Chip Barber that little spark came from a flight planner called PFPX that's just loaded with features that are fun and useful and just what it took to get him up and flying again.
Chip Barber returns with another The Corner" column. As often happens, his thoughts meander through the FS Universe, considering flightsim add-ons, doing some time with Railworks, and waiting for the next big thing.
Even the most avid flightsimmer may find his interest on the wane from time to time, but changing the feel" by modifying the flightsimming setup can easily bring back all the old enthusiasm. Chip Barber offers him his newest "toys" as evidence."
Is it possible that being more realistic actually results in a feeling that things are less realistic? And that flight simulation is somehow related to the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes"? Somehow Chip Barber ties it all together..."
Chip Barber has been reluctant to embrace FSX and like many has continued to favor FS2004 or even look for fun in other genres of software. But the great thing about Flight Simulator is that there are always new add-ons coming that can renew interest and turn the sim into a whole new game"."
