Hey everyone! I just got a new PC with Windows 7, I've been in FS since FS98 and have just short of 3000 hours in FS, I have fs9 and lots of addons, GEPro, Ground Env, UT All, Ultimate Traffic, Active Sky 6.5, FS Gennisis and lots of add AC and too many to mention free ware. The BIGGEST hang up was the PC. I have it loaded and sp 1 and 2 with my FSX and getting 65fpm. I would like input to what you guys like in FSX. I wish I could find something like FSNav that is the best thing ever for flight sim, you have all info that you would ever need at your finger tips EG VOR freqs, ILS freqs and headings, ATIS anything you need. Well it does not work in FSX it's like flying blind to me LOL. Is there anything like that out there. As for AC I have Eaglesoft's stuff and LevelD. I am a navgraph customer and have FSUIPC4.What is a good scenery upgrade?What is a good real world AI upgrade?Water?Where do you get the Accelrator SP2 disc?Weather? I have Activesky 6.5Airport upgrades?Any neat free stuff out there?Dont want to cause a debate just want what you like, thanks in advance."Good Day"Scooter

What is a good scenery upgrade?
Primary reason for FSX is its superior visual aspect, scenery, clouds, water, etc.For scenery upgrade you can look at this .. probably the best scenery ever designed for FS.http://fullterrain.com/For water and other "generic" texture upgrades you may want to try GEX and REX.I don't think the SP2 and "acceleration" is the same thing. For example I do have SP2 installed(free download) but I don't have acceleration which is payware. But if you purchased acceleration it already comes with SP2.

I use this site for planning and charts etc:http://skyvector.com/FSX Acceleration can be purchased online. Nowadays you can get the Gold Edition (Essentially FSX + Acceleration) for cheaper than Accel alone.http://www.amazon.com/Flight-Sim-X-Gold-Pc...4124&sr=8-1If you don't want the extra acft, added missions, and added scenery plus a few other things, you can get the FREE SP2 update from here.... do note I'd install SP1 first, then SP2http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...32-5a41a3e27ff0If I may, I recommend the RealAir Duke, Eaglesoft SR22, and Flight1 Citation Mustang right off the bat. For airliners/larger consider the PMDG JS41 or MD11, and the LevelD 767http://realairsimulations.com/duke09/intro...ge=duke09_introhttp://precisionmanuals.com/Scenery stuff:UTXhttp://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=FL1-UXU-001GEXhttp://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=FL1-GEX-001Weather stuff, lots of choices, ASX, REX, FEXhttp://www2.hifisim.com/node/4http://www.realenvironmentxtreme.com/http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=flt1fexGood luck
