  1. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/atis-app/id1498344508 This app is nice too if you’re interested in the current ATIS at an airport. I believe it’s limited to FAA airports that use D-ATIS, but if you fly in the US mainly, it’s very nice.
  2. RealTraffic uses actual LIVE ADSB data, so if an airplane for instance has an emergency, and wants to return to the airport, PSXT will show that airplane returning to the airport based on exactly what it’s doing in real life. You’ll see airplanes following SIDS, STARs, exit runways based on what the actual airplane is doing in real life, real time taxi, holds, basically everything that the actual airplanes are doing in real life. All other AI solutions, as far as I know, are based on schedules and FlightAware data, but integrated into the standard MSFS AI code. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong. In essence, you can listen to live atc from websites like LiveATC.net, and follow along airplanes in the sim with RealTraffic. Atc tells the airplane to turn left on B, right on K1, hold short of A, and that’s what you’ll see in the sim.
  3. RealTraffic, PSX, AIG liveries coupled with Live ATC is the most realistic and immersive route you can go. I don’t fly without it.
  4. Thanks! Yeah they take a little bit of effort to create, but so far it’s been a lot of fun learning something new.
  5. Loving MSFS so far after having held on to P3D for so long!
  6. Exactly my point, we can still use the sim realistically even if we don’t have the time or willingness to fly it for 5 hrs straight.
  7. I understand that they bumped it up to 2x and that’s definitely a step in the right direction. All I’m trying to say is that it’s not unreasonable for people to want to have the option to be able to use time acceleration beyond 2X and being able to save a flight.
  8. I am also one of these people that would like to have the OPTION of using time acceleration, and the OPTION of being able to save a flight en route. The fact that a lot of people like to fly simulator airplanes in the most realistic way possible is awesome, but this hobby shouldn’t be a zero sum game, where having the option to do something unrealistic takes away from users that like to follow realistic procedures. If you like to simulate a flight real time, good for you. If you like to expedite a flight without restricting yourself to the shortest route available, then we should be able to have that option too. Hopefully FENIX listens to feedback like this and can implement these features in the future.
  9. I think it’s flyable, obviously not the best quality but it does the job decently. I seem to be having issues with the TCAS though where the distance of the traffic is showing incorrectly. Other than that, it’s been fairly enjoyable for me.
  10. Fs2crew is a nice addition to making your flying experience more immersive.
  11. I just made the switch recently. Like others are saying, once you figure out the camera system, the UI, and you setup the control bindings to your liking, it’ll be a lot easier to transition.
