I'll add another vote for Ultimate Terrain and Ground Environment. Amazing stuff, especially if you like general aviation flying. From your list, you might not like GA stuff, but if you want to try you should look at some of the best GA planes:-Dreamfleet Baron (or the A36 if you like a single)-Realair SF260Or anything else from Realair or Dreamfleet. Hopefully we'll see the new Archer from DF sometime very soon. edit: also what about mesh? I have most of the globe covered by FS Genesis mesh.

Track IR is great. Although I still think VC s**ks I still think the Track IR is great for taxiing the airplane. But as soon as I get airborne VC goes bye bye.

>Yep. I was a die hard 2D cockpit user--totally refused to>use VC--until I got my Track-IR last week. After just 2>flights, I'll probably never go back to 2D again!Yeah, it really makes flying from a VC a totally new experience. Still, I sometimes prefer to use the 2d panel in the more complex planes, especially when there are lots of things to do. But for smaller planes or, especially helicopters, TrackIR is just the single best thing one can get.As for other add-ons: Most recommended "must haves" have been already listed here, except one: FSPassengers. Nice features which make flying the bigger planes just a tad more exciting. It's also rock-solid and doesn't have any bad side effects (for me).

"Flight1 ultimate terrain (Europe/USA/Asia - as per your locality)"-------------------------------They don't have an Asia (at least I can't find it) ... the other one is Canada/AlaskaI think Ultimate Terrain is great and also adds to commercial flying as the streets and roads and night lighting make cities look excellent both day and night which makes approaches and landings visually more appealing.

Well... how many folks out there use something along the lines of the Aura Systems Interactor Cushion or the ButtKicker. I've got a bunch of the Aura Cushions which I picked up cheap off eBay. I use them as a pillow to sit upon, with another behind my back and another shoved under the rudder pedals. This makes for some serious tactile feedback, I can tell you. Pushing throttles forward or lowering flaps and gear has never been such a moving experience, especially during a thunderstorm. I feel this is an essential piece of simmer's equipment and of course delivers great bang for the buck as you can continue to use it when playing your favourite first person (historical of course) shooter, if you're of a violent disposition, after a hard day of FS development... ;)

Could i get a little word inside this."Got some money to spend? Ideas?"Take your women out, spend a good evening dinner and slowly begin to talk about some plans you have (in flying high).Then you'll see.....Well, my opinions about flying, WW2 aircrafts. (Shockwave is a good choice). No gps, ifr a.s.o. I close them all.An old radio signal in morse code reaching 60 miles out, thats all i need to feel flying.Take care when you choose food, let her do her own.Have a nice day.Cheers

I have had just a few "Ah ha" moments in flight simming...those occasions when an addon virtually remade the experience for me. Those addons which gave me the biggest boost (and least buyer's regret) were: (1) Ultimate Terrain, (2) Genesis mesh, (3) BEV (although I've heard largely kind words about Ground Environment), and (4) Active Sky 6.5.

I went to this Multi-monitor site and looked at the 3 monitor system. It appears to have ONLY ONE picture spred out over three monitors. Does anyone know if you could buy this 3 monitor system and have 3 DIFFERENT views (one view on each screen) on it. Say example, the forward view on the center monitor, the 45 degree Left view on the left monitor and the 45 degree Right view on the Right monitor.(the left and right views when your inside the aircraft and push #7 or #9 on the key pad).What about the outside "Chase View"? Could you put three DIFFERANT outside views on it? Jerry
