Bit the bullet..

Recommended Posts

Well I finally bought X-Plane after years and years of being an "FS Only" type of person. Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on the best add-on's out there! Preferably free, but I'd be willing to cough up a few bucks for some decent payware!

Hey Chris, yea me too. Although it has it's limitations as you my know, the dusk and night flying is simply beautiful and striking. I would recommend Carenado for GA and I would highly recommend Skymaxx Pro. Enjoy the dusk and night flying!

Chris...welcome to the fold.  New things done...things to learn, and to ramp up.  Take your time, and enjoy the journey, as we all did. There are numbers of sites associated with the X Plane franchise, and as stated Carenado is first-class for Xplane G-Aviation sleds.

 

SkyMaxx Pro

UrbanMaxx Extreme v2.0

 

Xplane.org....etc, etc

 

Too many to list here...but just do searches....and you will be spending not days...no...but WEEKS...adding to the fold. Here is a list from my Custom Scenery ini to give you examples of what is out there...and what is already installed in my XPX!

 

 

 Enjoy..and congrat's....you MADE A WISE CHOICE...for you chose the 'right' chalice... 

 

:rolleyes:

 

Here's what you can look forward to around EDDF:

What Bob said :smile: and also also if you like helicopters, Dreamfoil's stuff, which is incredible. Also, "tooting my own horn" World2XPlane scenery which can make cities and towns look similar to do they do in real-life.

Real Terra Haze plugin from the Org makes daytime flying as beautiful as night.

 

And to toot Tony's horn again, I'm blown away by the results in W2XP so when you're a bit more confident with how XP scenery works, do it!

 

BTW Tony, when's 0.7.0 out...:)?

Taking longer than expected unfortunately. I'm trying to fix the roads at the moment. I haven't looked into them much since I released an experimental beta back in March. Problems such as roads double-backing on itself and strange junctions need fixing. I'm getting there, slowly, but 0.7.0 should be a nice release, with lots of artwork improvements.

Hello Chris,Welcome :smile: 

What type of flying do you like? GA,Helo's,Airliners?There's somthing for everyone.

Excellent add-on, Tony! I love doing some nice GA flying, but sometimes I also like flying complex airliners and whatnot. Are there any nice corporate jets for X-Plane? I know there's a pretty big lack of them with FSX, and I'd like to get my hands on a nice one if possible.

The 2 biggest sites for add-ons are....

LES is working on a Citation II,check out their Saab,It's fantastic!!

Good stuff! I think once France has finished I might hold off on generating anything else until 0.7.0 as I guess all regions will have to be generated from scratch again?

Everyone else has posted great suggestions for enhancing the sim, so, if I may, I'd like to offer some advice on the attitude with which to approach getting X-Plane tweaked out.

 

The sim is capable of some breathtaking visuals, as can be seen in some of the mind blowing screenies getting posted on the screenshot forum. Just remember, it takes a little time, a little patience, and a little trial and error to get things up to snuff. If you feel yourself getting frustrated that things aren't working out like you had hoped, take a deep breath and post your issues. While I can't speak truly for everyone, I can say that this group is a welcoming bunch that likes to see folks checking out and falling in love with X-Plane, and we're eager to help you try to make it the best it can be. X-Plane still has some rough edges, and not everyone will be satisfied with everything it has (or lacks), but I think you'll find that there's just some kind of... I don't know... "special sauce" with X-Plane that's hard to put one's finger on that's wonderful when all cylinders are firing.

 

Have fun!

Using both FSX and XP allows you to avoid the objections you have when comparing one to the other.  A corollary to that is that it is not fair to expect one to contain everything the other one has.

It's definitely a pretty difficult transition lol. It's not really as user friendly as FSX is, but, I'm sure ill get the hang of it over time! I can't wait to get it modded up to its full potential!

I also use P3D - three sims give me plenty to do!  (and plenty to spend moola on haha)

I like to fly, not get ready to fly.  So there are not really any good, simple airliners for XP - they all tend to be more complex and fussy and time-consuming to get running.  Consequently, I'll fly the simple 737 in FSX.  Also, FSX has Squawkbox which is an easier and better way to interact with VATSIM than XPSquawkbox, so I'll use FSX on VATSIM which seems to be better set up for FSX.

 

But I do a lot of single engine and twin flying and for virtually all of that I use XP.  I'm working my way through the list that Michael Dougherty made way back for FS2004 in his "Dougherty's Dangerous," and a few of those airstrips are not in XP which forces me back into FSX once in a while.

I'm using both FSX and X-Plane10 for GA flight.  I also tend to check out the same airports with both sims, just to see what looks better for the area. X-Plane mountains and deserts of the southwest look really great at sunset. By default, XP terrain mesh is better than FSX.  I haven't been using addon mesh, such as I had with FS Genesis on this new computer.  I also highly enjoy ORBX airports and scenery for FSX.  I'd never switch to just one sim, and planned from the beginning, on using both FSX and XP10 with the new system. 

 

In some ways, I'm even now preferring the XP10 system of setting everything up. That includes controls, aircraft, and scenery. Guess I just got use to it.  As far as simulated airplanes go.....................no overwhelming  winners (on one sim fence, or the other) in my mind. I use what I consider good flight models for both sims. I flew real aircraft long enough to know what I'm looking for. At least in the GA categories from simple Cessna's & Pipers, to higher performance.  Can't say I've flown a commercial passenger jet for comparisons.

Try the 787 on the org store, it's simple to operate and uses the default fms.

You're absolutely right about XSquawkbox, it's interface is very poor.

There is a new multi-platform Vatsim client called Swift which is under development:

Yes, I agree.  I just built a new high-performance simming rig and one of the main reasons I've not flown FSX as much is because I had so many add-ons in FSX and because the installation of many of them were not just "drag and drop" installations, or because they required me to go back and look up all my old registration numbers or proof-of-purchase dates and sources to get another copy of the installer - if possible.  So far the FSX installation on the new rig is "bare bones" because of the time and complexity of setting it back up like I had it on the old machine. X-Plane is so much easier to set up and maintain.  (But, wow! my framerates on the default FSX are unbelievable!)

I'll grab that one, thanks!  However, one of my simming "projects" is working my way through the Dougherty's list which involves all of the default FS2004 aircraft.  Those arrivals listed for the 737 are often short and tricky places where a 787 would be in big trouble.  But thanks for the advice!

You're welcome. :)

The FlyJsim Q400 is also relatively simple to operate and has a default FMS, perhaps more suited to your STOL needs?

It does require some throttle management but is quite rewarding.
