I was a big fan of aviation, especially flying in Northern Territories in Canada, the Alps, and Scotland Highlands. Just amazing the scenery there

I did a flight from Yellowknife to Iqaluit today in FSX with some addons, and boy does it look good...

What scenery were you using? Also what aircraft and altitude?

I have a PPL and own half-interest in a Cirrus SR-22T (turbo). You can see part of the fuselage in my avatar photo.

I also make my living as a 3d modeler and gauge/systems programmer for Military Visualizations, which although being a company specializing in military aircraft, also creates and markets a line of civil aircraft (htttp:www.milviz.com).

As far as FSX is concerned, Dove Tail Games bought a license from Microsoft to fix up and market a much improved version via Steam. It is normally around $25 USD, but goes on sale periodically for as little as $5 USD.

Lockeed-Martin bought the sole rights to Microsoft's commercial simulator platform ESP and markets it under the brand name "Prepar3D" (pronounced 'prepared'). The student version is $50 USD, the Professional version is $200 USD, and the Professional Plus version is $2000 USD.

Prepar3D is currently on version 3.0, having progressed through 6 'dot' revisions to v1, and 5 'dot' revisions to v2. It is light-years beyond FSX+Acceleration (aka: FSX Gold).

So yeah, I guess one could say I like airplanes! :lol:

There's apparently a new simulator being developed by dovetail using Microsofts flight technology. Whatever that means. Supposed to come out in 2016. I just wanna see a 64 bit simulator. I've been using fsx since it came out and I have it tweaked to exactly where I want it and I get awesome performance. So i really can't justify going to P3D or dovetails steam edition unless it's 64bit. So until I see it, not interested.

Thanks, EU. :roll:

Meanwhile, just a few days earlier there were news of how AirBaltic will be funded by the Latvian government and will extend their operations.

I hate how the FSX players have split the poor people are stuck with FSX and all these rich people have bought P3D are like look at us we have money to waste on that that reptilian bullshit in its license were you have to pay £200 and you have buy as new license every new version the difference between FSX and P3D is that is meant for flight simulators P3D and FSX are the same thing only that P3D has better optimization

I also consider FSX/P3D even more worse than train simulator in terms of add on because in FSX you will have to pay a lot of money for simple add-on's like ezdok $34.95 which costs which is way i do not play FSX often because you have too spend too much money to enhance the experience
