rayburrow Posted June 13, 2019 Share Posted June 13, 2019 I posted earlier about obtaining better UK scenery for my FS2004. In the end I took the plunge and bought FSX de luxe, and the Horizon Vfr photoscenery for FSX as well. The scenery is fabulous, everything I had hoped for. I wish I could say the same about FSX! I like to fly the DC3 in FS2004, and assumed it would be a similar experience in the later sim. I've set the system up meticulously, going on recommendations given by others on this forum, and I have a pretty powerful computer too. The result is a great disappointment. Virtual cockpit? Almost unusable. Views around the aircraft? Clumsy, unpredictable and amateurish. Control of the aircraft? At times it has a life of its own, whatever control inputs I make (and I'm no stranger to flying in the real world). I still have 2004 and have been swapping from one to the other for comparison purposes. Despite the relatively poor scenery, 2004 gives me a much more realistic flight experience, is more intuitive regarding control usage, and even the aircraft modelling seems more lifelike in 2004. I have the feeling that FSX is going to become a Hangar Queen! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
