FS2Crew or GSX?

Recommended Posts

That is very hard to answer. Both addons are must haves. I would suggest you toss a coin, heads for GSX and tails for FS2Crew. Or both if you have the dosh.

Each one has different functions, FS2Crew adds a co pilot, whilst GSX gives you ground handling.

FS2C gives you the 'RealWorld' immersion whilst flying the NGX and I wouldn't fly without it.

GSX, again gives you that 'eye candy' whilst on tyhje ground, again more like RW.

 

Personnally I wouldn't be without them both.

Put them alongside Aivalsoft's EFB and Radar contact, then I think that is the 'airline' complete package.

 

I always when flying 'heavy metal' use all of the above, across two monitors.

 

Hope that helps

yeah, FS2C is in your face kinda immersion while GSX is in the background which you don't really see (except for the pushback maybe) unless you look at the plane from outside.

 

I have both and enjoy both but truthfully my primary role for GSX is to get pushbacks done correctly, I hardly ever do any of the other stuff unless I take screenshots.

I have both also, If you have to pick one then FS2Crew it transforms the NGX and the way you fly it.

 

GSX is a must have and it gives perfect push backs.

 

If you get both try this.

GSX is nice eye candy, which also adds some realism too, and I do have it, but FS2Crew is with you all the way and transforms an FS airliner into something more than what comes in the box (or download). They are both good, but if I had to pick just one to add realism, it would be FS2Crew.

Have not noticed any degrading performance. Has quite a small footprint, Cannot speak in regard to the voice version, I use the button, but it comes with a easy to follow tutorial, and support is one of the best you will receive for a fs addon. Bryan works tirelessly to ensure the product runs as advertised.

GSX support is top shelf as well. Wish all dev's followed that lead.

I use the voice version only. I have found it much like any addon, once you learn the 'flow'; what to say when then it just becomes natural.

I have a 'flow' chart ( get one from the FS2C forum) on my second monitor and If I forget what to say then I just refer to that.

 

As Julian says the support from the FS2C team, is second to none.

I heard fs2crew has an extremely steep learning curve? Is it CPU intensive?

I certainly wouldn't say it was a steep learning curve at all. Sure, for first timers it will take 30 minutes to setup and get your head around, then it's just a question of following precedures and flows which are laid out in the document. They can also be found elsewhere on the forum. NyxxUK (Dave) has very kindly provided the simming community with a PDF download document of all the relevent flows and procedures. BTW, IMO if I had to choose one of the two addons then it would have to be FS2Crew, a no brainer.

IMHO it's more immersive to fly with FS2Crew. Then I would purchase GSX, a must have addon however!

Thanks guys & gals, will give it a try FS2Crew this weekend. I looked at some youtube videos and also their iphone/ipad app, I'm pretty impressed.

 

Does that 'NGX' code for 5 euro still work?

Thats the only thing I don't like about FS2Crew. The verbage is different (not to mention weird, eg "OK to clean up". Never heard an airline say that) which can mess you up if you ate used to saying different sequence and verbage.

"Okay to clean up" is a very common term among all facets of aviation. GA, Airline, etc.

With all due respect I disagree. None of the airlines, charters I have ever flown for use verbatim as such. Even airlines Ihaven't flown for use this. A simple "After landing checklist" is more common. Mind you there are a lot of airlines out there but imho it just sounds very unofficial for the lack of better words.

Too bad we can't have a specific user sequence or verbage to tailor it to our own airline. If I get used to fs2crew and then jump in the real ngx I'll get smacked if I use fs2crew verbage.
