I upgraded to FS2004 from FS2000 on the 3rd April and you notice the changes a lot more
. It's well worth the money and some of the things you can do is incredible, it's also great to be able to land on water.
It goes without saying by the iFDG aircraft and POSKY aircraft are excellent but there is some good payware out there too. the PMDG 737NG's are superb - last night I flew FAO
in a 737-800 and suffered a bird strike / eng fail below minimums - it's always keeping you alert.
The traffic you can download is excellent too, I think PAI
is the best but that is just my opinion, it's good to be flying somewhere and hear real callsigns flying around.
Hope you have fun
