Hi CRJ:

I've already been to the site but cant get anything in my head. please tell me what exactly is it used for?

It is online ATC. The controllers are live. The pilots are live. Communication is either by microphone or text. The software required to use Vatsim doesn't require you to upgrade your computer.

is it possible to use it together with FSP?

I haven't tried it, but I don't see why not.

Yes It is indeed. It requires great concentration to manage your flight with FsP and whilst responding to ATC requests etc but good fun and very satisfying 😉

I haven't been in Vatsim but have been flying for few times in Ivao. If you wan't to take a look of Ivao here's link http://ivao.aero/hq/

Ivao and Vatsim are quite equal to each. They have almost same amount of pilots online daily but in some countries might be large differences. For example I think USA has more pilots in Vatsim but UK has more in IVAO.
