Another one returns

Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone.

After having a couple of years out of flight simulation, I've recently decided that I miss it too much to carry on not participating. I've watched several livestreams and videos online of where the sims are now in early 2019 and they look absolutely brilliant! (Though i'm aware, using a lot of payware) That being said, I have browsed AVSIM for the last week or so and there certainly is a lot of information to take in. Especially surrounding the whole situation over FSX / P3D / XP and which is best. More of an endless tug of war it seems!

I look forward to meeting new people and getting straight back into it. Although, I think i'm going to need to rethink my software. The last time I flew I was using the standard version of Flight Simulator X, along with some very basic payware and the PMDG737. I never did learn any larger aircraft and regrettably I skipped straight over general aviation. So perhaps I should continue reading and see what people would recommend, though if anyone has any immediate suggestions they would be appreciated. Budget not being an issue (within reason, of course).

Thank you in advance to all who read this, I look forward to flying with you soon!

Welcome back! Like Charlie I too am still using FSX in which I have invested a lot and which is now ‘tuned’ to a level where I am very happy with its performance. However, if you are planning to purchase one of the newer sims, I would suggest going for a 64-bit platform as that is clearly the way forward for developers, with an increasing number of them starting to abandon 32-bit sims with their newer products. If however you decide to stay with FSX, don’t worry there is still a vast amount of great payware available for this!

If you have mastered the PMDG 737, you shouldn’t have any problem if you wish to move to larger aircraft particularly Boeings as their systems are all pretty similar. Perhaps it may also be worth giving general aviation a try this time around too - in many ways it’s a different world but you can get a lot of fun, pleasure and immersion from getting back to basics and from the challenges of flying into and out of small strips. 

Whatever direction you decide to go however, be reassured that you will always find help from someone here at Avsim. It really is an amazing resource for anyone partaking in this hobby no matter what their sim pilot skill level or their degree of computer literacy and it is something we are very luck to have at our fingertips!
