Original (Boxed) CLS/Just Flight DC10 vs. Steam Edition?

Recommended Posts

Just wondered if there is any difference between the two versions? I have the old boxed edition bought years ago for the original (disc) FSX but now run the Steam edition of FSX. Did the Steam edition get any significant updates to justify paying the @£21 asking price or should I just try and get the original working?

If I am not mistaken SE and the disc version of FSX are the exact same + acceleration. I have several boxed planes working on SE, it did require some tinkering though.

The overwhelming majority of FSX downloaded or boxed add-ons will work just fine in FSX: Steam Edition.

The only difference is that you'll get less liveries, just KLM and Air France 🤦‍♂️
