The one thing I miss most in P3D/FSX that's not in MSFS

Recommended Posts

I miss this in MSFS:

  • GSX
  • ChasePlane
  • FX Immersion packages for several aircraft
  • Many airports not ported over yet (too many to list)
  • Many aircraft not ported over yet (A2A, PMDG, FSL, MJC Q400, Leonardo Maddog, JF BA146, Miviz, RealAir)
  • Independent Multi-Monitor/View support
  • RSG GNX540, RSG GTN750
  • RealityXP
  • AI Lights Reborn
  • FMCs and EFB on my iPads (Virtual Avionics)
  • Ultimate Traffic Live
  • ProATC/X
  • HiFi Weather Engine
  • SODE Jetways (and more)
  • Full featured FSUIPC
  • Full control of all my GoFlight panels (GoFlight Interface Tool has partial support)

Some day, maybe, hopefully ... in the meantime I use them in P3D.

Cheers, Rob.

When I move to a new sim I do not regret anything as the fun to discover a new environment offsets the loss of what I liked in the old one. One sim only and enjoying it as is. 

I was an expat. You settle in a country for a few years then leave for elsewhere. Same.

Now if if longed for anything I had in MSFS predecessors it would be the replay function.

Nope, a super simple Spot Plane View like we've had literally since I started playing on FS5.1. I don't want to mess with toggling control, I don't want a completely different set of cameras, just let me move around with my hat switch with my plane CENTERED on the screen instead of hanging off the bottom. This isn't rocket science.

Enable drone lock mode. It gives you exactly what you want.

1. ACTIVE SKY!!! Particularly for Vatsim use.

2. Flight/situation saving and loading so I can recover to a point in mid flight.

Chaseplane

AI Traffic (AIG)

GSX

Aircraft (many high fidelity ones I'm still waiting on)

AI Lights Reborn

Remote CDU / IPAD FMS etc

More reliable weather (for vatsim flying)

Water (a strange one.  But many of the non custom water mask areas in MSFS look terrible)

Lastly I miss runways that are not lit all day long like in MSFS.

Ultimate Traffic Live

Yes please

--------------

GSX

ProATC

Both of them are for airlines, that I will not fly till Fenix and PMDG NG. 

Even with the DC6 and CRJ I dont miss GSX and use a great pushback mod. But ProATC would be nice as I dont use the ATC within MSFS.  Reason being like P3D it waits till your 200ft of your given alt then with only 200ft to go, your cleared....yer ProATC please.

Active Sky, Chaseplane and PAVD for me........

...... not checked on PAVD for a while, but last time I looked in that area the scenery was dire as well as the airport missing.

A camera system that worked for 25 years. It wasn't flashy or customizable but at least we didn't have to stare at the top of our planes every flight and barely see the ground due to the angle of the camera and the plane being in the way.

Out of all the things to break... good job Microsobo.

I've never seen this, you can easily move the camera around.  I must be misunderstanding.

I miss how it used to be nice and easy to change aircraft and location without having to end the flight (or use dev mode.) I seldom used the replay, so to me that's not a big deal.  Oh, the ability to set failures mid-flight was nice, and especially the expanded failure options that came with P3D (yes, I know it wasn't a MS product so we can't really compare.  FSPax had even more options.)

There were so many quality pay and free aircraft.

but at least it was real human voice, our very own @Ray Proudfoot was one of them. never picked up on concatenation, as a matter of fact my wife is a speech therapist and said phonetically it was pretty spot on.  

Yeah phonetically it was, but the linking together of each segment wasn't natural sounding to me.  I'd be very stoked w/ the current ATC if it just worked better and offered a variety of voicings but I guess that may never happen, at least the variety of voicings.  I don't hear the concatenation in it nearly as much as I did in RC.  Actually, if i could plug in old FSX ATC that always sounded natural to me if limited.
