Now i know that this is an FS2004 forum but was just wondering if anyone had ever played on X-Plane, arguably a more up-to-date simulator.

I think it looks pretty cool, probably not as good as FS9 though, haven't seen any add-ons, freeware etc. for it.

There are plenty of add-ons available at the larger flight simulation portal sites.
When I had a chance to buy a boxed version, I didn't have a DVD drive which was required for installation.

oh right, i assume the fact that its a DVD means that its bigger than FS9. looking at their website it looks like they've got some quite good graphics there. it also looks a lot more diverse than FS9 with space flight an all that

yeah i looked at that - it does look awesome. but i'm not going to step away from microsoft simply due to the massive community and amount of add ons.

and all the lovely people here would then be useless Smile

ps. what's that simulator that costs 5? a magazine loved it, the planes/cockpits are better than microsoft but the scenery isn't...

Yeah I agree I would never stray from MSFS. You might be thinking of the Flight Unlimited series I have the third one, got it for about 10. I didn't think it was very good personally.
