What was your best purchase 2016?

Recommended Posts

I have several really good ones, I think.  Trying not to focus on the end of the year so much...

 

  • My favorite, so far, is Active Sky/ASCA 2016.  I see it as having huge potential once the database of clouds grows.  We may see less flattened clouds that look more natural.  Envtex is a big plus.
  • Favorite plane this year is the Aerosoft A320...yeah, very late to that party.  (I dumped a lot of airplanes off of Prepar3d when I went 3.3)
  • Favorite scenery...hmmm...gonna say Aerosoft Malaga.  Beautiful to fly into, light on my system.  Might have said Palermo if it wasn't so heavy.

  1. FSLabs A320 wins hands down...

Active Sky 2016 + ASCA with latest patch, superb!

FlyTampa sceneries Sydney, Toronto, Copenhagen, well, all of them yes...

DX10 Fixer + Cloud shadow gave a new life to my FSX, helps dreaming of P3D when it gets 64 bits!

For P3D I only bought ORBX FTX Narvik and REX HD Airport Textures. I like them both.

 

I loved the New York DLC for Aerofly FS 2.

 

And that was all I spent money on in 2016. Next purchase will be for Prepar3D 64 bit. I wonder who will release the first one!

It should, the title doesn't limit to just FS purchases. I got a subscription with Ecluse winery in Paso Robles, CA and am enjoying that very much!  :smile:

 

I only made 3 FS purchases in 2016, of those I'd pick AS2016 my purchase of the year.

I was just looking through my "Flight Sim Purchases" folder and wow did I spend a lot in 2016.  Definitely my highest spend year of all time (not including computer build).  For me its a toss up between Prepar3d or the updated ConcordeX for Prepar3d.

I love Paso Robles wine!  I have a favorite and I'm NOT saying what it is out loud.  :)  But, I'll try Ecluse.

Yeah...game changer.

I bought that but haven't flown there yet.  Waiting for an airplane to take in there.

Another game changer.  Seriously makes flying over the US nice.

I bet you'll enjoy it. Steve Lock's a great winemaker and also a pilot.  :smile:

I'm intrigued by it but the performance thing has me nervous.
