Can't get myself to enjoy my old sim

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I know people are being sensitive about "over-hyping" MSFS2020, but honestly, I log in to either of my sims (xplane 11 or p3d), and just sit there. I might do a short circuit, and then log out again in frustration. The sims themselves are superb, of course, and I have enjoyed them to bits, but right now I end up watching replays of the new sim on my TV and find that ultimately more enjoyable than flying in my old sims. Anyone else feel this way?

I agree too.  The new sim seems to be unbelievable.   Never thought I would be interested in VFR flying on a sim.  Can’t wait!!!

Same here, I just keep clicking through this and the A2A forums, hoping some news will break.

Been feeling that way for several years. The new simulator's announcement last year motivated me to try and get back to the current simulators again, but I just couldn't.

Nope-flying every day with A2A aircraft, Reality XP GNS, Pilot2ATC, Route Finder and Brunner controls.  Lots of challenges and plenty to keep me busy for a long time.

I just did a night flight to KFLL in P3dv5 and it was awesome. Still loving it.

Cheers, Pete

I think we're probably all a bit like that at the moment Andreas.

Personally, after ditching P3D/ XP I'm quite enjoying FSX. The more I fly around, the more I'm enjoying thinking how the scenery of my local area is going to be very radically transformed in the next few weeks.

I'm accepting for what it is. I'm only able to do that now because we know where we're going shortly. I used to get so frustrated with it, thinking; is this is it! Is this as real as it gets?

Well no, not now - its about to get a whole lot more real.

So enjoy your old sim. It's only for a few more days.

n4gix will be along in a moment to win.

He's got something like 500 TB up and down I think.

But he's annoyed because the TV in the lounge is taking a little off the top of that. 😛

Yes!

Trying to continue to enjoy XP, but in the back of my brain is MSFS2020.    I think that MSFS2020 will be very refreshing.
