The rest....free downloads.

David, you beat us all! It's incredible the quantity of addons you have.
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
P4 3.06g £120
Graphics Card £250.00
Aztec Cooling Fan £40.00
1024mb Memory £40.00
Sound Card £30.00
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 but hey, that's where being an eccentric millionnaire helps !
Fs9-50 bucks at office Max
ActiveCamera- however much it was...i got it as a gift
Ut2004-Also got as gift
Throttle Quadrant from GoFlight-399.95
New PC from dell-1,523$
ATI X800XT PE- 530
3 new joysticks, 19.99, 28.99, 17.99
I completely understand you, David. I like to make my simulator as better as possible. And I want it to look pretty nice.
ok I have bought:
-fs 2004 twice because the first broke so that's about 75euros
-A340 professional 29.99euros (i love it)
-727 professional 29.99 euros
-traffic 2004 19.99 euros
-concorde professional 39.99 euros
- world airports 2 $35 + shipping
- A380 by wilco 19.99 euros
and i think that's all and all for 130 euros approx.[/quote][/list]
Or, as the TV commercial does it:
Addons: Lots of Dollars
Not having to go thru aiport security: Priceless
hmm.. not to mention that I assembled a simple PC just for flight sim.. cost $250. (mostly refurbished parts)
fs9 - $20 (walmart.. yay)
fs2crew - ($30) I think
PMDG 6/7/8/900 - (49.99 + 29.99)
fspassengers - $39
CH yoke - $120
TrackIR Pro - $120
new geforce 6200 graphics card (I was using integrate sucky graphics card till now) - $55
wow that adds up real fast
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.
