What did you buy over the holidays and how do you like it?

Recommended Posts

Hmmm...what forum does this thread belong in?

 

Anyway.  I've sat on the sidelines for all of the sales thus far and I'm wondering what folks bought that they liked as well as what they didn't like.  So, fess up.  :P

I am with you this year. Not to hard to pass up the deals so far this year. I have found that since changing over to Prepar3D, I don't have to keep chasing new stuff all the time for the Flight Sim Fix. Things working pretty good and now I am just "plane" in love with the A2A Cessna 182. Now very content to just fly and wait on LM's next release. See what happens wit DX12 and maybe even P3D with SLI.

I wasnt prepared for december sales last year, and missed out on several things I would have wanted and what I didnt have the budget for. So this year I made sure I was prepared. :P

 

-A2A C182 and I love it! Hardly used any other aircraft since I bought it.

-Milviz B350i, still in alpha version, but everything about it promises it to be a most wonderful aircraft when it's completed.

-FTX PWN, NRM, PFJ, NOR, KORS, WA56, 05S. Absolute awesomeness!

-Jon Patch Victoria Plus for PNW. Some very nice detailing for KORS area.

-Zinertek HD airport graphics. Very nice overhaul for the airport buildings.

-And for the 5 bucks, I couldnt pass on FSX:SE

 

Oh, and last but not least, a Gigabyte GTX780. Yummy! :Big Grin:

 

Santa was very kind, this year. :wink:

Well, I haven't bought that many add-ons for fs9, but after seeing Carenado's 80% off sale for fs9, I purchased 10. Haha. Yes 10. Just over $50!! Not that long ago I may have been able to purchase 3.

 

So I'm happy even if they aren't perfect, for $4-5, who can complain? :D

I have Aerowerx King Air for FS9, you interested? I don't think I ever used it. Help pay my cc bill??? :wacko:

Eggnog, I buy Egnogg and sometimes some Dark Rum to go with it! And just about everything Carenado has to sell.  But in the long run, nothing I REALLY want like Flight 1 GTN etc.

I guess Flight1 doesn't do the holidays.  Not a sale in sight beyond the $10 off their 182.

Bought a 6 core i7 5820K, ASRock X99 Extreme 6 motherboard and 16Gigs Crucial DDR4 RAM all to get an extra 10fps out of my favourite sim X-Plane 10 at a cost of €901. Surprisingly, given the cost, I'd have to say it was worth it. I've spent many many years pursuing my concept of the perfect sim, something you are all familiar with I imagine, not to mention the many thousands of euro and I have finally reached that point where XP10 lives up to the ideal. I think I've finally done what has been just a dream for so long. I favour VFR flight in my home country Ireland in small Cessnas and Robinson R22 which I figure is what I would do in real life if money were no object. Let's face it at this stage of my life I'm never going to learn to fly big iron. I'm finally perfectly content to say my current simulation environment is as real as it can get when you consider that you're actually seated at a desk in front of a PC. I'm not able to run at totally maxed out settings but nobody is with X-Plane though I can run high enough to not see anything that bugs me and I'm hard to please. If it never got better I'd still be happy. It may not be everybodys dream but it was a simple one of mine and it's realised, it's a good day today!

Yeah but I'll not upgrade again now for three or four years, at least that's the aspect of it that I promoted to my lovely and very patient wife. Thankfully she went with it despite thinking that I might be just a wee bit mad.

Nothing for FSX... for now.

But I did buy about 15 games from Steam. There's only one problem: I'm running out of hard drive space  :lol:. Ohhhh... the "master race."

Flight1 and Aerosoft have terrible sales!  20% off boxed products?  Give me a break!

I never buy anything from Aerosoft , its Take take and no give with these guys. F1 is okay due to the 30 day refund which is as good as a sale price to me
