We have reached a point where we need to ask one simple question; what is your sim of choice? When you want to go virtually flying, which of the available sims do you jump into and fire up? The last poll we did on this was included in the demographic for 2012, but that was posted a while ago, and a lot has happened. So, today, which flight simulator is your go to product?

Tom, I'm not sure FS9 should be grouped with FS8 and all others before this one. Anyway, here's my vote for FS9.

FSX DX10 A new convert. FS9 for many years and never thought I'd make the move.Mike P

I use both FS9 and FSX on about an equal basis, but this survey doesn't really allow for that answer.

It often depends on what type of flying I'm planning, more often FSX for GA Aircraft, and FS9 for the big jets.

I thought the same thing the first time I read the Poll description. FS9 was a major leap, you know those moving clouds. I would expect "FS8 and earlier" as a whole.

 

I voted for FS9 without "earlier"

Well, early results would seem to indicate that FSX (and probably FS9) are not going anywhere in a hurry. I don't see any mass exodus to X-Plane, or even P3D.

I currently have 6 sims installed on my PC... FSX, FS9, P3D, XP10, Aerofly FS, and MS FLIGHT of those I consider FSX the primary one, FS9 is there for any old stuff I still want to fly, P3D because I wanted to try my FSX addons in it, although I don't use it that much, I just bought XP10 2 weeks ago, mainly as there was an offer on it, plus I wanted to try Jrollon's CRJ 200 (which is very good btw!), It has some good points, but is also still a bit rough around the edges, and the lack of decent addons means it wont replace FSX as the king of (my) sims just yet! Aerofly FS is pretty interesting and I bought it because I thought they might expand it further, so far they haven't although its just been released on Steam so maybe that will be the Catalyst for that, and MS Flight, I was on the Beta and just updated it from there, it was fun to fly around in, but on the whole I was disappointed by the lack of sim stuff (atc, AI, the world!, etc), and the addons were pretty expensive for what they were... but thought it had potential, that was never realised. Shame really.

Qualitywings looks to be very close with there calculation of 75% sales are FSX. Specially adding FSX and P3D together.

Let's say you only get 300 (at 30 bucks a pop to equal $9,000) sales on your product. From there you spend a significant amount of time re-exporting the model so it works properly in the other sim. You tell me if the time and cost of 75 ($2,500) sales is worth it. Don't forget you still have to pay everyone on your team for their part. Oh, and taxes.

 

Most developers already answered this question.

 

A lot of people seem to think it's really easy to make an addon that works for both sims.
