Top 5 addons in your opinion

Recommended Posts

We cant live without them, every month new addons emerge in the flight simming market just to makes us spent more money :) they are the master keys to put in our flight simulators the things that are missing, to make it more appealing to our eyes, to gives us a more immersive experience.

As someone said "I have a dream..." a dream that one day there would be a flight simulator that doesn't need any extra software.

Please be kind to share your top 5 addons that you are currently using in P3D V3 or 4(freeware or payware), for us more long time simmers know whats being more used in the market, for the developers know that their hard work is being appreciated, and for new simmers have some starting guide in this particular field that can be hard in the beginning with so many options.

Here is my top 5 without any particular preference order:

- Active Sky for P3D

- ChasePlane

- Little Nav Map

- Simstarter NG

- Multi Crew Experience

Honorable references for Navigraph, Envtex and OrbX

For me I only have 3 that I couldn't live without.  The rest is all scenery or planes I fly less often compared to the NGX.

ORBX - Global, Vector, and OpenLC make it look like a whole new sim to me


PMDG NGX - Fly it a ton and love it


edit: I forgot REX with softclouds.  I've got a theme that I really like!
