Waddup. I want'a get back into FlightSim after I've lost interest a few times but unfortunatly, Everytime I do, I end up installing FlightSim X - Getting a couple of ~okay~ addons and finding that there's not enough around or I can't find anything I like that I wanna add on, then I end up installing Flightsim 9/2004 for all the extra addons and I'm dissapointed in the lack of vibrance and realism coming from FSX so I eventually stop playing then not too long after, I uninstall both from having my machine slow down from having them installed.

So this leads me to my questions...

What are your FSX Favorites?
I know a few off the top of my head are the ORBX Australia -- I had a look at their site but never bought it.
PMDG 747X/MD11X -- Again, I never bought either, I had the 747 for FS9 but didn't buy it for FSX, Never bothered with the MD-11.

I'm sure there are more but those are a couple of samples.
This is not so much a "What do you own" -- More a "What do you suggest that makes FSX worth having over FS9"

Aaaaaand... Thread: GO!

Coolier than thou.

Quoting Brendan03 (Thread starter):
What are your FSX Favorites?

I got PMDG 747X for $30 from best buy and so far it has been the best add on I have ever had. I also have UT2 which is fantastic the realism it brings to FSX is amazing. Super-80 pro looks like a fantastic add on also. I dont have it though. And PMDG is comng out with NGX a 737NG package for FSX I am sure it will be fantastic as well. If it was not for UT2 and PMDG I would be using FS9 in a heartbeat.

I would also suggest either FS PassengerX or FS2Crew for some add ons.
FS Passenger makes just flying a normal route more fun with the added things such as random failures, problems with passengers, passenger reactions to your flying and so on. It also keeps track of your hours flown, gives you points and rankings. Has a cool flight map, and you can even "run" an airline starting off with small planes and making money every flight you do. This seems like a good thing for someone who likes flying but does not just like flying around with no purpose on FSX.

FS2Crew adds a very real co-pilot and captain voices to your sim add ons. I heard the FS2crew for the MD-80 Pro with the voice control is like flying with a real first officer.
