I fly just as much as before, but I also look at everything I encounter in the sim and dream of the day MSFS gets released.

Flying a bit more now I have the PMDG 737ngxu but I never stopped I could not stop flying for a year I don't see the point, you must hope it is everything you hope it will be and you can run it in high detail.

PS if your waiting to be included in the pre-alpha testing and when you applied in answer to how often you fly they now know you lied!!!!, your no longer flying ooops!!

If you asked my girlfriend, she would immediately say I've been talking about FS2020 exponentially more. 

Best part though's that she's particularly excited at seeing her home and all the places she's visited in her life once the game comes out.

EDIT: I want to play more FSX before release, but then I remembered that even with the strongest gaming rig (our computer is a DNA sequence processing machine), FSX is still very slow because of all the addons I had to add to make the game even semi-realistic.

I check the forums here and elsewhere a few times a day. I have gone back to my usual flight simming routine, and just spent $100 plus on recent BF add on deals.  I imagine I will stop simming on other platforms once MSFS drops—when/if VR is included.

I've been practicing simming retention ever since.

Almost stopped simming after the MSFS announcement. For a while I felt like putting in time tinkering with other sims was pointless.

Now back to messing with Aerofly in VR again (and sometimes X-Plane). Realised that no matter how good MSFS is, I want to keep checking in on other sims to see how they're progressing.

Not much progress checking to do with AFS2... 😜

Same here. There's no substitute for Aerofly for me right now for VR, and if MS2020 somehow ends up being too resource-heavy to do it well, or does not do it at all, that might be a welcome niche remaining open for other contenders.

Additionally, even with all the Microsoft hype, I remain curious and eager to see what Vulcan brings to X-plane, and certainly I'm not giving it up.

My glass continues to be half-full, rather than perpetually half-empty. 😉

I installed fsx again at the weekend, a couple of pmdg planes, the a2a c172, active sky, orbx things (global, vector, england, Southampton and pnw), q400 and ezdoc. Literally took me most of the weekend to get it working properly with no errors and no black buildings all over the place. God I missed the frustration....

managed one flight in the 737. I forgot how beautiful that game can look at dawn with the right weather.

I'm naively hoping that MSFS will light a fire under IPACS and Laminar, and we'll enjoy quicker development cycles from both.

Laminar seems to be prioritising Vulkan now. IPACS have understandably added content to their mobile app, which will make it to the PC version.

I admit, I've been in a holding pattern since the new MFS was announced.

I still fly in P3D but it's only been a few times per month since the reveal, and the more Microsoft shows us the less interested I am in continuing to fly in P3D.  The improvements are just too great to ignore, and now every time I fly in P3D I can't believe how long I've been essentially flying the same simulator.  I mean yes P3D was worth every penny over FSX both times I bought it (v2 and v4), the improvements are great, but it still just feels like an improved FSX to me.  

I'm ready to move on, I'm ready for the next generation of flight simulator, and that's probably why it's becoming more difficult to continue flying the previous generation.

Significant that the majority of simmers here are stopping their flying for the next year until MSFS is released.. 

LOL.. Talking has become the new game.. The 'real' simmers have outed themselves..

I didn’t enjoy simming since MSFS what’s announced. Everytime I try to play I only see the issues that MSFS lacks (nice weather, and nice scenery). 

 

I voted wrong in the poll

I've been playing a lot of Spider-man on the PS4. There was a Black Friday-ish sale and a bunch of highly rated games for the console were on deep discount, so I decided to get caught up. The implementation of the swinging, the scale and the way the city feels true to life without being an exact copy of our NYC, and the fantastic story all combines into a good time waster.

In my case, the only sim I presently play is War Thunder, in which I have probably logged more hours already than in any other combat flightsim I have ever used...

I do poll the AVSIM forum, and sometimes exchange opinions with some friends through Discord, but simming time is mostly War Thunder...
