Do you still buy scenery or aircraft for P3D?

Recommended Posts

The navigraph survey showed us that the P3D marketshare is less than 10 %. But for me P3D is still the number 1 simulator and I think it will stay that way. So I keep buying scenery and/or aircraft for it. But mostly during sales. Nice sales still going on at ORBX and other developers. Just for a few days. So I bought a TE Region (UK Central) and 3 airports. About 60 Euro. But why not? I love P3D. Yesterday a short flight in the PNW region since a long time. It was a very nice experience. Thank you LM and thank you fellow simmers here at the P3D forum for all the support.

A definite yes. P3DV5 is the only sim I spend money on.

Absolutely, in fact i've spent more on scenery and add ons for P3D/ FSX in the past year than i ever have. My ORBX library is beginning to get quite extensive.

Yes. Last year, I spent more on P3D-only addons than on MSFS-only addons. This year, the only MSFS addons I'm considering are yet to be released. I also have 2-3 P3D addons in sight.

Yes, I still buy scenery for P3D. There are still a lot of sceneries that I do not have for P3D. I don't buy a lot of aircraft though. The last aircraft I bought was the Carenado Falcon 50.

I'm not buying anything at the moment, but I bought the iFly 737 MAX on its launch day.

Buy what? I already have so many scenery....

PS: But I'm looking forward to MSFS 2024.

Yes, just picked up some new P3d scenery yesterday.  I had picked up some scenery for msfs during thanksgiving sales, but honestly haven’t even flown to some of the new airports I bought yet because I find myself enjoying P3d too much still.

haven’t picked up any new planes this year since I bought the MAX early last year.

Every week I buy at least one airport scenery and I just bought the Ifly 737Max, pre-ordered the TFDI MD-11 and even bought the CaptainSim 767 (on sale for $10, which was all I was willing to give them for it).  I'm still on v5.4, but am getting tempted by v6.1.  I'd like to continue supporting LM's effort; I appreciate them keeping flight simming alive when MS bailed on FSX.

I still buy scenery but not a lot of aircraft. The recent release of free Milviz and Iris planes gave me a lot of planes still not even touched till today and I did not have to buy them.

I waited long for Carenado to give some discount for the ATR planes but they never give and meanwhile I no longer want the ATRs.

Since there is no better option than P3D5 for me, there's no reason to stopp buying addons. The only reason to stop is the lack of addons available I don't have The iFly 737 did not temped me, since I have the PMDG and CS 737s. No need for another one.

It has been an incredible experience since v3 which is where i jumped on it, but moved on quite a while ago. I hope to see it evolve and get significant updates to pull interest from developers once again.

Not buying for P3dV5.4 any more.

I am buying for V6. I have the SimAddOns airports for Canada which cover the country from coast to coast and up into the high arctic. Have started buying FC Scenery for Canada and have 3 provinces so far (will add more as the budget permits) and as to an add-on aircraft i have the Majestic dash 8 which is a great aircraft and works well in V6. Have added  Active Sky 6. There are a couple more good aircraft on the way for V6 and i will get them when available.

I am pleased with V6 so far and I see it getting much better over time much the same as the way MSFS has evolved.

P3D was actually the simulator I spent more money in addons since FSX... From time to time I start using it for a while, get really enthusiastic about it's potential and the quality of some of the addons I have for it - the full line of FSLabs Airbuses, the PMDG 777 200-LR, the iFly 737 MAX and the A2A Comanche,C172 and P-40.

But this Summer I went ahead and purchased ORBX Vector, LC Europe (I already had since a long time Global Range) as well as LPPT and LPPT from MKStudios, and RealTurb Europe and Americas... FSHUD (which I now use with  MFS 2020), FSUIPC 6 and Active Sky P3Dv6 to use with v6.

I purchased a 6 month Professional License for v5 and installed v5.4. I purchased the full Private License for v6.

Presently I have none of the versions installed, and I will give up on 5.4 because I don't want to purchase it again, while keeping serious hopes on the future of v6, while I thoroughly enjoy MFS 2020 🙂
