Introduce yourself! What got you using flight sims?


Recommended Posts

I have been crazy after planes since I was 3. Before the mind blowing X-Plane 11, I used crappy flight sims like "Flight Pilot Simulator 3d free" and "Airplane Simulator 2019 free". The 2019 one called professional pilots "Airmen" lol. I have a list of those crappy sims. Most of them were Unity... never a good sign. Later, I got Airline Commander by Rortos for free. The physics were pretty good, and the textures and graphics were great. But it wasn't the level of realism I wanted. This year, I was so mad after X-Plane 11 after the demo, I just bought it even though I use a Macbook Air 2017, and I was surprised by the great performance, even with my current computer.

Very good idea, Sam! I'll add to this then ?       My first simming experience was F/A 18 Interceptor. I have no clue how many hours I spent in that "simulator" but that intro music has burn

My path to X-Plane 11 was weird, expensive, and adventurous. Back in 2010, I tried my first flight simulator. It was FS2002 ?. Basically, my computer was old, slow, and just flat out bad. It was a Tos

Started in 2014 with FSX, after a while of using that, I bought X-Plane. That's when I got serious into simming, upgrading my hardware. Since then, I have done hundreds of flights, the majority being long haul.

Nice to be here.  I normally began with Sublogic Flight Simulator back in the Amiga era with Flight Simulator 2 and from there it was history with getting all of them after that.  Just purchased X-Plane 11 this past week from Steam as it was on sale and boy did I miss out!.  I love it!  Now looking all over for some quality X-plane freewear and paywear as well.  I see a lot I like on this site and others like xp.org.   It is new to me and I am like a little boy with a new toy!..It feels good again like the old days of Flight Siming!

Well, hello everyone. Been simming since early 90's, but unfortunately have only about an hour of actual piloting under my belt.

Recently moved to X-Plane after MSFSimming since FS5. Maybe will move back when FS2020 will get VR support.

Greetings to all you simmers. Started researching different sim programs and decided on x-plane and since I was based at KDEN chose to add X-Codr's KDEN airport. When I tried to install the airport using the instructions I have been unable to install SAM on my iMac so without that KDEN doesn't work. While the aircraft included with x-plane is nice, I'd really like to fly the FF A-320 Ultimate. Any old timers have any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

Cheers
