Thread: Why FSX over FS9?

  1. Default

    I have both FS9 and FSX. Max50, which are the most important add-ons to make them look and work better. The selection of the add-ons may well depend on the performance of the CPU.

    Sorry for the late reply, been a very busy week. I'll send you a PM over the weekend.

    Whilst I'm not a big fan of Froogle, he had a very similar attitude to you about the new sim until he tried it. Worth watching: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fj8h6yibHHc

    I don't watch Froogle or any other Youtubers, like to make up my own mind. Couple of times I followed a link from a forum to watch something from Froogle I thought he said some ridiculous things to be honest. I'll take a look at the video you linked and post back if it changes my opinion on anything.

    There are a number of reasons I'm not jumping up and down with excitement. I don't think my mind will be changed until the game is out and people are running it. Sorry to those cringing I called it a game.

    Ok, watched it and speaking for myself personally, I'm even less excited now and that's the truth.
    Let's just wait for release.

    That’s because your mind was already made up. Seriously, if you don’t like Froofle go to the literally hundreds of other videos/post to form your opinion. The MSFS developer have been remarkably candid and the pertinent information is available to allow you to glean the direction of this project.

    I can’t believe this thread got 64 reply’s; it’s ridiculous as the topic is 15 years too late and been discussed ad nauseam. Seriously, the OP asked a question then proceeded to convince all those who replied why their wrong. To that point, it was he who was trying to convince you, vice you convincing him...

    If the OP wants to stick with a sim developed 20 years ago, let him. The rest of us will move on to a modem platform employing edge computing, machine learning, and access to 2 PB of data,

    This is a time to look forward to a fantastic future, not to regurgitate pointless debates 10 years past Relevancy.

    No, that's because I listened to things like comment after comment about how the weather will now include this and that from mountains and winds will replicate this and that and it will affect the wing tip of the aircraft.
    To summarize what he said, what he spent many minutes talking about, is we would see the plane rock a couple of extra times during flight than we do now! lol

    Are we going to be able to fly in a jet and have a solid blanket of unbroken clouds under us like real life?
    Are we still going to just whizz through the most severe thunderstorm like it wasn't even there?

    If talking about new weather features, I want to hear about things that will make a difference.

    Imo, MSFS from what we know to this point is new terrain, which will itself come with compromise, and everything else is missing or just one big FSX patch.

    I'm looking beyond the pretty pictures. There are masses of reasons why MSFS is not yet something to be excited about and we all have a right to an opinion.

    Hi Folks,

    I don’t know what sim you’re flying - I just had an in flight break up from over stressing my Skylane while flying too close to a cell in IMC landing at Reading PA a few weeks ago...

    Regards,
    Scott

    For me personally, I‘m really not ready to shell out big bucks again on the new sim, plus the possibility my old PC won’t be able to handle the new sim, (I do not own an XBOX), will all my FSX addons be compatible worries, and if not, I’ll have to wait for devs to start making some, and that’ll take time and cost more money, etc.

    Took me 3 years to get onboard with FSX after its initial release. Starting with buying a new (now old) PC.

    As I get older, I’m just not into the hobby as much as I was back then, so to me, FSX is just enough to get my flying fix.

    Just my personal opinion.

    Hell, PlayStation 5 is launching next year, and here I am still with an old PS3. Lol

    3 years? I've just moved to FSX-SE last week when I bought my current laptop. This makes either 5 years (for FSX-SE) or 13 years (for FSX boxed) after its release hahaha. I have some addons to re-purchase (FS9 addons that I have and want to have in FSX), but I guess it will be around $110 (including the iFly 747), and I will only miss 1 single add-on that I care for (the Dreamfleet 727).

    Going to either P3D4 or MSFS2020 (when released) will be at least 10x more expensive for me.

    There is something I have to admit: right now you may be able to get a good laptop for FS9 for less than $400. Desktops, even cheaper.
