Ok, so are the other flight simulators worth it? I have heard alot about FLY, and XPlane.. Are they comparable, better or not as good? And importantly, can we get as much addons?

I have played MS Flight Sims, since FS95, but never really tried the others...

SO your opinions?

There is something special about planes....

I like X-plane becasue of the ability to design aircraft. I also have a computer that won't run anything past MSFS98, so my opinion might not be relevant.

When in doubt, one B pump off

I have played FLY and XPlane, and I must say that at the time between FS98/2000, FLY was definately much better in my opinion as far as accuracy of aircraft systems, etc., but with FS2004 and the PMDG 737 and equivalent add-ons, I don't play it any more. XPlane is very cool from the aspect that you can design your own aircraft, but I don't think the look is very realistic. Keep in mind that the only version I have played is 5 or 6? and from what I hear the newer versions are pretty good. FLY and XPlane are definately not as demanding on the computer as the Microsoft series in my opinion, but I think FS9 is much better on the whole as far as the number of features included. Also, to answer your second question, no...the other sims do not have nearly the amount of add-ons.
