You guys have lots of addons! I wish I have the time to buy more addons. During my firsts months with FS2004, I refused to buy any addon. Don't ask me why...I don't even know 😂

Well, here's my short list:

FS2004: 49.99
Logitech Extreme 3D Pro: 29.99 (I think...)
A340 Professional: 49.99, including the shipping.

The downloads.

Pro-Sim that's alot of money. Mine is within the last 12 months plus if you adding your computer compents I think mine beats yours hands down. Here goes

Before the troubles PC 1200.00

Then to get it fixed after someone broke it
Motherboard 80
P4 3.06g 120
Graphics Card 250.00
Aztec Cooling Fan 40.00
1024mb Memory 40.00
Case 40.00
Sound Card 30.00
PSU 39.99

A grand total of 699.99 plus 1200 for the orginal PC then the Add ons 295.91 this all comes to 2195.90. OK not nearly as much as yours but close enough 😀

$0 and going for less
(excluding upgraded hardware which is necessary in some cases, unlike those add-ons 😎 )

Well, right now I don't know how weak the Rand is compared to the Dollar so I can't exactly give you my statistics with costs as I bought most of my stuff off Simmmarket online and converted the prices into rands.The rest were just gifts from the UK. Anyway here's what I got:

Ch Flightstick Pro/2 x Microsoft Sidewinders/CH throttle quadrant/PSS 320 Pro/PSS 340 Pro/PSS Dash 8/PMDG 747/PMDG 737/PMDG 1900D/FlightSoft Hong Kong/FS Terrain/UK 2000 Heathrow Pro/Simflyers Manchester/Eaglesoft Citation X/Fs Navigator/Ultimate Traffic/VMAX 747 200/France VFR- La Reunion/many PC Pilot magazines and I've probably forgotten to mention one or two items.

What can I say, I'm addicted to buying quality add-ons. I even had Airbus 2000 [originaly known as Airbus and Toulouse ] by PILOTS for FS 98.

Hey Agus / folks,

I don't regret a single bean (penny) that I've spent of FS as I take the hobby pretty seriously (you'd have to wouldn't you to spend that much cash! 😂 )...

I constantly like to look towards the next improvement I can make to the set-up to make the flight simming feel as real as possible.

I ain't no casual flyer, I lile to fly the most complex add-ons that are available - I'm not showing off, I'm saying I really enjoy the challenge of getting knee deep in to a 400 page manual.... then coming out of the other end a couple of weeks later and being able to fly the plane, properly and procedurally.

Fab add-ons like Level D 767, PMDG 747 and the soon to be released PSS 777 and Feelthere 737 PIC offer so much realism that I'm constantly trying to improve the hardware set-up to keep pace !

That said..... There are around 25% of the add-ons on that list that I NEVER use (I should sell them or give them away), so I guess there is a bit of wasted cash in there Crying or Very sad but hey, that's where being an eccentric millionnaire helps ! 🙄 😉

FS9: about $80.00 Can.

PMDG 737 ng: about $40.00.

that's about it really. a lot of freeware aiplanes.

But plenty on hardware upgrades that I probably never would have done if it were not for the sim.

hmmm. thats a tough one. well in some sort of order

FS9, joystick, perfect flight B717 and NWA adventures, PMDG B1900D and the whole 737 series, Captain Sim c-130, Carenado Cessna 182, Flight 1 Cessna Skyhawk, Aeroworx King Air, thats it for now. So how ever much that is, then that is how much I have spent.
