Oh, I see what the op means now. I guess it really depends on how much you want to spend and how you plan to fly your sim?

The 7.49 USD version only.  http://store.steampowered.com/search/?term=fsx&page=9

If you want add ons purchase them from outside vendor websites.  No reason not to and in some cases it's beneficial to have non-DLC content

Thank you. I have been out of this for awhile and it has changed a lot.  Hell back when I had FS9 there was no choice but the boxed version and there was very little "add ons" available.  The steam site seems to be full of ads and typical younger people BS.. it is secure and legit?

Steam is the #1 digital gaming content provider in the world; it accounts for 75% of the aggregate market.  In fact, Steam is why your local electronics retailer no longer sells video games .  So, yeah, its legit...very legit.  Its also very convenient and intuitive...

Yeah I mean unless you want to go with P3D.  Version 4 being 64 bit is the way to go, but quite a bit more pricy.  Plus a handful of add ons don't work yet in version 4 and LM needs to patch some items now.  It's not like FSX is bad.  The scenery is the same, the ATC and NavData is the same.  P3D offers some enhancements but to say that FSX is dated or inferior to P3D in many ways is ridiculous.  There a lot of benefits to P3D as I said (e.g., 64-bit, certain add on features only made for P3D) but overall it's the same world.  For less than 8 dollars you can't go wrong to play a little and see if FSX suits you.  You can always upgrade to P3D later just keep in mind that certain add ons charge again at full price for P3D versions over FSX.

I wouldn't waste money on a dead sim. Buy P3Dv4

uhhh, P3Dv4 is just as dead. I wish he'd consider X-Plane.

This is a very tired argument and is a total waste of time. Like trying to convince a Ford person to buy a Chevy. If this thread continues down this path, it will be locked.

On a side note, your personal wishes do not make fact. That statement is based on no fact other then your extreme loyalty to X-Plane.

no. there's no waste of time here. maybe he's unaware of other choices outside of FSX. of course wishes aren't facts,...thats why they're wishes. oh, and since when does suggesting P3Dv4 is just as dead as FSX mean I have extermine loyalty?...I just did a nice flight in FSX today.

i think you're spending too much time in the library or something.

When you say "I wish he'd consider X-Plane" you can extrapolate that. Saying "Have you looked at X-Plane" is more what you meant. This ends now.
