FSX is awesome

Recommended Posts

I just did a flight from Las Vegas to Phoenix and the sim is just awesome! I bought a new Q6600 machine and overclocked it to 3ghz. With most settings maxed and traffic added it just looks amazing.I was taxing to the runway when ATC instructed me to stop due to departing traffic. There was another runway directly in front of me (going crossways). I stopped and waited a few seconds, wondering why ATC was stopping me. Then i heard the roar of engines and a 737 shot across the runway in front of me. ATC then asked me to contine taxing. I had a quick look around (saw the apron pulling back as a 747 got ready to depart, another 737 was taxing to the gate after landing, baggage trucks and tugs were zooming about the airport and just ahead of me a busy road was packed with cars. The sim felt so alive.Take off was awesome on 1R as you see the casinos to your left.Landing in Phoenix was also amazing. The airport is right in the middle of the city and looks like a real city with autogen maxed out.FSX is awesome. Going to do another flight tonight...

Thanks too for the nice post. So true, the sounds alone are worth the upgrade IMHO. If you can, try to catch a go-around situation, that also sounds pretty cool. Kind regards Jaap

The right hardware with some moderately-tweaked software will give quite fluid - good fps numbers and no stuttering or blurries. I, too love FSX. :-beerchug

I am wholeheartedly with you on this! I have most sliders 80-100% and am loving it! The new soundsets are great, and so is the new alive world. It was well worth the upgrade from my good ol' P4 1.7G.

FYI Quad core's still do not out perform Dual cores.

>FYI Quad core's still do not out perform Dual cores.What about overclocked quad? In anycase FSX takes advantage of multiple cores, the more the merrier (i.e 4 better than 2)

Regardless of dual & quad cores...FSX IS awesome!My FSX has been "screwed" lately due to some addon contamination. I haven't had the time (and patience) to do a complete re-install, as the recovery method didn't work. I've often enjoyed some Sunday morning flights out of the KSLC mountain area, using real weather.Now that I'm stuck with FS9, I've bagged these relaxing Sunday morning mountain flights altogether; because FS9 looks crude in comparison to FSX when not using specialized airport scenery such as Flight Scenery's Portland, or some of the Fly Tampa areas.L.Adamson

Larry, you really summed it up there mate. ;-)The latest crazy for me is the Flight One MD-80 the 'Super 80' even more absorbing than the PMDG 744!Try it, if you don't agree you get your money back.

>>FSX is awesome. Going to do another flight tonight...Sure it is. Default ground textures, autogen, airports, landclass is outstanding compared to default FS9.Ulf BCore2Duo X68004GB RAM Corsair XMS2-8500C5BFG 8800GTX, Creative SB X-FiFSX Acc/SP2, Vista 32
