Is FSW up to the challenge?

I've been playing with it since it 1st came out and at present, in terms of appearance and performance, it's better than the "out of the box" FSX.

Again it is pretty much and wait and see what DTG is willing to do. So far they seem to be serious about the sim. It will all come down to dollars and customer base in the end.

Well after seeing your posts I bought it last night and installed it in Steam , flew it for 14 minutes and asked for a refund ..I didn't like the lack of options for programming my joystick , the lack of airplanes and not sure how the multiplayer is going to work. Scenery is ok .Takes some getting used to like all Flight Sim's I guess but I think will try and get X-Plane 11 to do what I want ..still flying FSX Steam at present .. not sure where P3D is going seems they are coming up with another version every few months and looking for more money ..which being retired I don't have a lot of lol

It was worth trying though but not for me ..

Wow the graphics look fantastic. Can give serious competition to XP 11. However flight physics needs to be at par with X-Plane.
