update FSX-SE with PMDG

Recommended Posts

Hello ,

I am just a new simulator player since july 2017.   I have bought FSX steam edition recently and flying B 737-800 mostly. I am intending to update it with PMDG 737NGX but not sure I can do that. The download costs 70 USD and before invest  I want to know if:

1 . is working the PMDG 737NGX with FSX steam edition as well?

2. When bought , how can I install it?

3. When installed , what is the best way to learn about full control of plane.

4. I read topics advising to invest rather to P3D. Does it have sence to update FSX-SE?

 

thx for all kinds of help.

1. Yes, the PMDG NGX works with FSX-SE

2. After you buy it, you just download the installer then run the installer and it automatically installs it to FSX.

3. The NGX comes with some flight tutorials to help you learn the plane. There are also a bunch of YouTube video tutorials you can watch.

4. If you end up buying a P3D license later on then you'll have to buy the NGX again and the P3D version is more expensive than the FSX version. If you have a fairly high end computer then you could just get P3D and buy the NGX for it instead but it depends on how much your willing to spend and if your current computer it fast enough to run P3D satisfactory with the NGX installed. Only you can make that decision. I still fly the NGX in FSX and haven't moved to P3D yet since I will need to update my computer first.

Just to confirm that response: I fly the PMDG 737NGX on FSX-SE a lot - it's my favorite plane, and it works beautifully. 

Make sure that you buy the correct (i.e. SE- specific) version on the PMDG website. And yes, if you are going to switch to P3D at some point, you'll have to make another investment...

Enjoy flying it!
