Regretful purchases for FSX

Recommended Posts

Over the months and years we all collect and purchase a wide variety of add-ons. They sometimes are not what we expect. Maybe it was an unproven developer, bugs, too high a price, or just an awful product!

 

What was your least favourite add-on maybe you have more than one?

 

Mine are::

 

Iris F-22…..Not sure why I got this anyway, its not my style but very poor and buggy

 

CaptainSim 767……My god!!! I never experienced such rubbish, awful pay-ware :angry: ( My Opinion )

 

FSDT KORD……… I love FSDT just something missing with the KORD package.All the rest are amazing.

 

Traffic X………..CTD every few minutes it had to go!

 

Again there is no wrong answers here, there all based on our own opinions which we are all entitled

As much as I think FS2Crew is an amazing product, it's just not my thing having someone doing all the fun stuff for me, but it's very realistic.

You buy it... It's actually really rubbish, it takes you a while to realise. It's because all the hype sucked you in and other 'users' positive comments because they too couldn't come to terms with parting with hard earned $ for something that falls well below expectations. It's called life lol lecture over!

You mean regretted purchases, not regretful - the purchases themselves are not filled with remorse. :P :wink:

 

I have a number of add-ons I no longer use, but the only one I really regret buying is the Alphasim B-24. Its an aircraft I've always been interested in, but the model was just dreadful.

 

Stephen, a cracking idea for a thread !

Stephen, would there be a way to render your post more useful? It comes in like a rant and, if you get CTDs on your system, even a sad one. :mellow: Ventilating frustration?

 

We may agree that a thread starting like that may not end well, or at least helpful for readers. And I have yet to see helpful posts including the words 'rubbish' or 'poor and buggy'. I think you can do better. :smile:

CoolP, I think Stephen's thread will be very useful for more than a few people. Of course, it could turn into product bashing, which isn't good. Just need to keep some level of maturity in the responses.

 

I don't have any flight sim stuff that was rubbish or poor and buggy, but I've bought other games in the past that were.

Regrets? I've had a few, but then again, too few to mention. I regret getting collectors disease over Carenado stuff. I came to my senses with the last three offerings. That's not to say they're all bad, but all but the best have been consigned to the storage depot.

£100 worth of VFR Horizon, not for me or my type of flying.

Fortunately, Flight1 has saved me from quite a few mistakes.

All told though, not too terrible.....expensive, but you've got to spend it on something!


Stay safe. Don't argue with someone pointing a gun at you.

You name it, Sir. Regarding the later outcome, I'm as excited as you are. :Peace: Nice experiment.

 

Perhaps it helps to not only add product names, but to describe why you regretted the purchase. The most common mistake people make is to describe their feelings instead of the product. This leads South, especially when the strong words are all there is.

 

So, describe the product, not your emotions. :smile:

Nice point, Ron. One can't praise that try before you (really) buy system enough.

I’m not 100% sure what you mean, It’s not a rant nor am I looking for solutions for problems.

I was just asking members what pay-ware they regret purchasing.

Its not trying to be an in-depth thread on individual products and associated problems. We’ll save that for another day ^_^
