After more than a year, I just had without a doubt my best flight ever in MSFS. Just a short hop from Liverpool to Dublin in the KLM PMDG 737 and now I am starting to worry that all the money spent on P3D is going to become obsolete. Of course I will still use P3D, but I think for the first time MSFS has become real for me. I think we may have turned a corner.

Cheers, Pete

Honestly, if Asobo and/or the 3rd party world can figure out how to reproduce P3D-level commercial AI, I think the last of the P3Ders will fold their tents.

Alternatively, you can fly on VATSIM or other ATC networks.  All the planes you see are controlled by other human players, just as you would expect in real life.

There is also live traffic. For me, I don’t think I have really used AI traffic in MSFS, I usually pick live traffic.

 but yes I agree for people flying airliners - this is the first one to really hit home.  

Good way of putting it for sure!  All my flights in the Pmdg 737 MSFS have been truly awesome!  What a difference in how the simulator works for me now.

For me, the MV 310, JF 146 and then the PMDG 737 just pushed my MSFS happiness over the edge. I am super happy with the state of the sim right now. Granted there is work to be done, but for me everything performs great...all my aircraft, my sim controls, the sim itself. It's all just working. Definitely a great time to be an MSFS simmer 😄

From pretty much the day MSFS came out, the arrival of high fidelity tubeliners was what a lot of people were waiting for I know.  Glad that the quality has lived up to expectations.

Loving the PMDG 737 as well, a lot of Southwest 700s fly out of my local airport I'm under the approach path for. Still will get back to some FBW A32N, CRJ, CJ4, and my beloved Kodiak. I'm enjoying the ride!

There’s no question that it is the PMDG 737 that changed everything for me. Honestly I fly the 737 90% of the time so I may not need another jet. I also love the 700 so I am a happy camper.

Cheers, Pete

Did my KLM straight cheatline livery make you an even happier camper? 🙂

I'm having so much fun right now in the AS CRJ which really has become quite capable.  Lack of an auto-throttle help make this plane a great choice for A Pilot's Life v2 since you are scored per flight on a nice set of criteria and an active developer.  Right now I'm stuck working for one airline, Endeavor, with a limited schedule and were it not for the fact you have to fly this thing it would be a real drag as I'm temporarily giving up the whole planet to play in this venue.  The dev has essentially promised an option soon to get out of the restrictive schedules for additional flights that will be scored so can't wait for that.  I really like APLv2 so far but will be anxious to get the ad hoc option asap.  Works very well w/ PACX and I only do airliners so it's a great fit. I find RT Online Traffic getting managed better and better but still is being tweaked.  I love that ATC interacts w/ real traffic and my own flight.  If you're really starting to feel great about MSFS know this:  it's nowhere near 'done' yet and expect more improvements to come from all angles is my prediction.

Next plane will be PMDG 737 but I will likely wait til the 800 as...I'm already having so much fun and good things come to those....

I feel you, I have several thousand pounds worth of P3D and X-plane software! All now obsolete! But after flying the 737 and reading the closed beta statement from Fenix I have no regrets.

MSFS finally feels like it's in its prime now. I've been a day 1 user and loved it but it's awesome now that the heavies are arriving and airliner ops is feeling just as good as GA has.

I honestly can't think of a single reason to use P3D any more. That sim had its day and kept the FSX/ESP platform alive for a long, long time. But we finally have something far better now in this.
