GSX or ASN?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

 

I want to buy a new Add-On for my Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition. But I don´t know, what is more important.

GSX or Active Sky Next. So it´s different but I dont know. Can you help me?

 

Sincerely

 

Mr_Gambler :smile:

ASN for sure, you want accurate world wide weather for flying. GSX is just something nice to have with helping you push back, taxi to the gate, and get nice screenshots sitting at the gate with all the service vehicles.

GSX is nice, but at the end it's just eye candy. I like it, but it doesn't change the way I conduct my flights. ASN creates a _much_ better weather environment. You actually have to pay attention to the weather en route while planning your flight, and you have to react to the weather while cruising.

 

So without a doubt: ASN is more important.

Easy - ASN.

 

Weather is much more important for immersion I would say. At least because the stock weather is just nothing. ASN does an awesome job!

Eyecandy like GSX could wait  :smile:

 

Have fun!

ASN. Changes the sim entirely and has an game changing effect during the entire flight. GSX is only of use while on the ground. Personally, I don't like what GSX does at all: takes too much of my precious time.

 

In short: ASN.

If you haven't already bought it, it's worth getting the non-Steam version of ASN. As I understand it, the Steam version can only be used with FSX-SE whereas the normal version can be used with all versions of FSX and P3D. At the moment it's on offer from Simmarket and is only slightly more expensive than the Steam DLC version.

There's no such thing.  You buy ASN, you get FSX/FSX-SE and P3D versions.  FSX and FSX-SE is the same version of ASN - no difference.  P3D version is a different download.  Your license works on everything.

Sorry, but according to Damian from Hifi (who should know), you're wrong. See post #2 in http://www.avsim.com/topic/476087-asn-as-steam-dlc-any-difference/ - to quote him "The ASN "Steam Edition" version supports only FSX:SE on Steam. It does not support Prepar3D, FSX Boxed, or any other simulator platforms/versions."

To explain better, if you purchase ASN thought steam then it's DLC and will only work on FSX:SE. If you purchase ASN from SimMarket or some other non-steam vendor then ASN will work on FSX, FSX:SE and P3D without extra purchases. So in other words, don't buy within steam. I bought ASN from SimMarket and it's fine in Steam. I can install it into P3D down the road if I make that transition.

Huh! I'll stand corrected then! I'm not afraid to admit when I'm wrong! Lol.

 

I had no idea that ASN was offered as a DLC on steam. I'm on P3D, so I haven't looked at steam in a while!
