I just recently upgraded to Steam Edition. It'll be 10 years before I go MSFS. Sick of paying more and more money on my existing stuff to make it compatible.
The only issue was REX Sky Force, had to abandon that, the original REX textures work fine, just can't get my lakes to be blue from muddy, but the weather engine is too much for my little ol' overclocked i5. Impressed with Orbx & GSX updates still supported unconditionally.World Airports HD was a good buy as well. Change up the same boring airports scenery.
Same for Air Hauler, Pete Dawson (thank god I've never had to ask a question, yikes!) both free updates.
The trick is to avoid all pictures and videos of anything new, once you do that, you're doomed.
And Steve too, free upgrades for going on what? 12 years now?
