    Default Simple program to get started

    Looking for a simple flight sim to get started, i have a good sim as i run three monitors for iracing. Wanna get use to a sim and flying before diving in deep.

    `Simple` and `Flight Sim` don't exist together. Learning to fly adds a dimension to learning to drive, as you have to cope with the third and fourth dimension, and unfamiliar controls and their use.

    Try DCS for a quick starter.

    You can, at times, pick up FSX-SE on sale for $5. Cheap at twice the price!

    Still a few hundred bucks worth of learning, mind.
    There are NO short cuts in learning to fly, fake or real...

    Can Steam still retail FSXSE since MS took back the licence?

    MS didn't have to "take back the license." They can license it however they please, to as many folks as they please. Or have you heard that MS actually DID withdraw their permissions? I'm sure some written contract was involved, which would set conditions for that.
