FSX Acceleration vs. FSX SP2

Recommended Posts

Before FSX completely dies away, I am considering purchasing FSX Acceleration (assuming that it is still available, which I see new packages are in Amazon).  Other than missions and the F18 off of a carrier, which I do not intend to use, is there any advantage to purchasing the Acceleration expansion pack over running FSX SP2?

 

Is the money better spent on P3D?

 

Thanks,

There are a few notable differences. As you mentioned, the entire F-18 thing, which means that some add-on military aircraft require Acceleration. Helis also see better support, and add-ons such as Milviz's helis require Acceleration. There's also some improved damage modeling for default aircraft. All-in-all, not really a lot of difference.

 

FSX:SE, as mistreat has said, includes Acceleration. Not all add-ons are compatible, but the list is expanding. The biggest advantage here seems to be significantly lower VAS usage reports.

That's a bit misleading. FSX:SE won't be updated. They dont have the rights to make changes to FSX except to make it run under Steam.

 

Back to SP2 v Acceleration, SP2 gives you most of the additional functionality and is free. Acceleration came with some changes to engine modelling but the differences are minor.
