should I install the game again?
should I install the game again?
Why ask us? That's a decision you must make.
Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much
Personally, I stopped using mine a few years ago. Life got in the way and it just sat there on the shelf collecting dust.
With all the stuff that has happened to me these past three years I needed a outlet. Decided to dust off that software box and reload it.
It has sparked some things again. I am actually making arrangments to finish what started, actual flight lessons.
So, it up to you to use it or not.
You get what you put into it.
My vote is YES.
MSFS 2004 v9.1; Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
AMD FX 8120 8-core processor 4.3Ghz, XFX R7870 2GB GDDR5, Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600, Western Digital 500GB HDD, Biostar A880GZ AM3+, Antec Kuhler 620 water cooling
Wow..... Am I surprised by the solidarity, motivation and understandig shown around here !!!!!.
Max, if you really enjoyed Flightsim the fist time, my recommendation is yes, installed it, get passionate with it and challenge yourself every day in improving yous pilot's and navigational skills.
Always keep in mind that FS2004 is only a game and that the more you advance in your learning curve the more satisfaction you will get with it. Go on your own pace, and don't try to compete with anybody here but with yourserlf. Keep posting in this forum and never mind some ironic replies, many members here will do our best to help you always.

You and I may have had some very similar life events that brought us back here. You didn't say what your goals are. Just needing an out is understandable, but in re-considering MSFS, but I think that is important to establish (to some degree of intent) beforehand what you would like to accomplish: Baby steps are fine , and recommended for most. Do you like airplanes and just want to learn how to buzz around your home state in a Cessna? Maybe you want to pilot heavy transport jets internationally for the military, or a commercial airline? Perhaps creating new or modifying existing airports, aircraft, or scenery appeals to you? You can even train to be, and become a modern, responsible, ATC handler guiding International traffic at the world’s busiest Airports. You can do any or all of these things in MSFS, eventually. And with every accomplishment, along your path you will get praise from the group and you will sit a little higher in your seat!
If you’re wondering about support in the forum, I can say that being a "re-up simmer" myself, I am very pleased how the pros here help guide the Newbie. Be aware we are expected to do our part an seek answers on our own for some issues, as most problems were already solved in posted forum, threads, or other documents. But, if you still need help, remember three are no stupid questions. However, there are sometimes, rather stupid sounding answers’-but these are usually the result of readers not fully understanding your question.-Just try to ask with much relevant background info and your threads will go well.
Personally, I am much farther along in FS efforts now than my first attempts, eight years ago. Then, I could only bounce all the default aircraft off every obstacle around-a real menace. Now, I am a thoughtful pilot, now, who will always try executing maneuvers that my training (an others) have taught me-the correct way, every time. The Latter method is much more rewarding and is recognized by your proud peers and friends online. I’ll close this by saying. There are much worse things you get involved in, these days, and if there is a SHE in your life that has a negative disposition out this, I like to tell HER that I’m preparing to take her on a romantic flight to an elegant restaurant for dinner. Then, shortly after telling her that, I buy her a kitten! lol Good Luck, Friend!
