Happy birthday! I still remember what a mess it was at launch.

 

Yup..it sure was..

 

I loved the water in FSX (what a leap from FS9 water) and globe (not flat earth) which broke a bunch of Addon Airports..notably, Vauchez (Flightzone 01 KPVD and flightzone02 (KPDX)

 

and more importantly, the new PC I had built (top of the line at that time) specifically for FSX ran like a dog and I quit simming for over 2 years. Dark ages!

 

And then the apocalypse! MS quit Flight Simming! Oh, the Horror!

 

 

But still, FSX is l good today which has morphed into P3D by LM (The Savior) and all is well in this world.

Considering it still crushes PCs, it doesn't play like a 10 year old game that's for sure.

Not sure how much better it is today.

Is there any other software game still being played in the same numbers after ten straight years, I wonder?

 

theres a few out there. world of warcraft 12th anniversary is next month and they still have around 5 million subscribers or so. counterstrike is almost 16 years and has 300k users on steam last month..

but it's a pretty small list for sure.

cheers

Well it's actually a said day because it reminds of the two years cycle we had back then with a "new" flight simulator

(we would be now at FS15). Lucky us the community is still going strong :-)

I was one of the lucky few who's local Best Buy store decided to put FSX on the shelves early - on October 4th, 2006.

 

Going way back in the wayback machine to the AVSIM thread from that day.

 

Fun times... fun times!
