I bought FSX steam for $10 on sale a couple of years ago and it is stable and works fine I have it installed on a separate SSD drive no problems at all gave up on P3D v2.5 kept crashing on me V3 didn't work and from what I gather P3D V4 is going to cause problems as most aircraft that worked in the other sims will not because it is 64 bit now but I guess the scenery is great as are other things but any add on's will have to be re bought for a small price and reinstalled. Been fooling around with X-Plane 11 and love the scenery planes are scares right now though ,


Yep - agreed!

I'm hoping we can find someone who loves XPlane enough that we can get them interested in painting aircraft as well. I'm took a brief look at it but did not seem simple at all...but hoping for the best in the future :) We can get a lot of new members from this untapped source!

Cheers! :mrgreen:

Well CXA Canadian Xpress which I fly with has some planes for X-Plane 10 and some of them work in X-Plane 11 but from what I am hearing it is very difficult getting them converted and I have tried a few of them and they really don't work that well. Even the X-Plane regular planes I have downloaded are not working well , planes that work in X-Plane 10 do not work in X-Plane 11 . I have a x737-800 _v503 from the project which takes forever to climb to altitude I have set and takes way to long to fly the course to destination than the regular default B737-800 takes for the same alt and route .. I must admit I would love to be flying X-Plane 11 all the time but too many issues with things that don't work that well , scenery is terrific and setting up your controls is a piece of cake compared to X-Plane 10 , cannot find a moving map or flight planning software that works well , FSCloud will connect but I cannot see other planes .FSCommander does work well .. I have been fighting with X-Plane for a couple of years trying to get things working ..lots of fun but little results on my end but it is a good sim none the less .Not saying it will not get better just takes time and a lot of work on creators to get planes for X-Plane 11 :)

I fell in love with XPlane 10 around the time I got frustrated with FSX Boxed edition. However purchasing XP 11 was a waste of time for me as I realized that it needed very high end machines to run. I currently have a 2012 laptop which couldn't run XP 11 at the bare minimum 20FPS. Hence switched to FSX Steam edition. I must say - the experience has been pretty good. There rarely has been a crash on Windows 8.1. Carenado addon aircraft works flawlessly. Will stick to this till I can purchase a higher end version.

FSX Steam can be installed anywhere you want on a separate hard drive or SSD or C: it is very stable and doesn't crash like the FSX Gold Edition . I have been running it for two years now and no problems at all ..accepts all my addons airplanes and scenery
