For instance, you could get the C-172 to snap roll like no one's business. In real life, just getting them to spin is a challenge.
How are the aircraft in XP10?

It's the same. Still depends on the model. But the quality of some of the aircraft available for XP-10 is far and above anything I have ever seen for FSX. The default 747 and CRJ are excellent. Seems like 2D and half 3D pits are now a thing of the past. Here's some shots of the recent 777 to give you an idea. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'm only a good judge of what I know, though. I could be way off on the heavy iron, but I don't find myself using those big planes in simulators much anymore. I have a soft spot for prop planes, for whatever reason. One thing I do know from research though is that the stock 737 in FSX has about twice the fuel burn rate that it should, and does not fly in cruise flight correctly (737's flight at about +5 degrees of pitch). You can't make the same cross country flights that every other 737-800 can make. It seemed like someone took the fuel burn number for both engines combined, and applied it to each engine. Makes me wonder what else they fouled up; the aftermarket 737's fly very differently.

FSX is gorgeous, that is for sure, and it's virtual cockpit is really, really hard to beat. The aftermarket aircraft and scenery community is huge and very talented. I still find myself coming back to FSX, even through it's shortfalls.

That's awesome to see! I'd love to see X-Plane get more professional aftermarket support. I'm sure they get more and more as time progresses. The view controls in XP9 bugged me a lot as well, but that might just be something that I have to get used to coming from the MSFS franchise.

Are there any light aircraft that have good models? Like Cessna's, Mooney's, Sport/Carbon Cubs? That cockpit looks gorgeous in that 777.

It will, like any AMD processor ever made, run FSX like massive crap.

For some stupid reason, a Core2 Quad runs FSX better than any AMD processor in the market.

My advice? If you plan to play FSX extensively, stay away from AMD both in CPUs and GPUs.

I'm saying this as a huge AMD follower and as a FSX junkie.

FSX has a ton of absolute and fantastic add ons like REX / ORBX / Carenado etc.. and that is where FSX is shining and of course not to forget the PMDG NGX although I don't have it but have heard it's a perfect replica.

I only fly the GA crafts I use the FTX carenado 152. Have you noticed any difference in cross wind T/O between FSX and XP ?

I used to be an airline pilot. I always felt like the aircraft in FSX flew like they were on rails. Not very realistic no matter which aircraft I was flying. Also, I always felt like FSX looked like a cartoon until the enb mod came out. By the way, Carenado has released some very good GA aircraft for XP-10.

LOL

This thread turned has out to be a flame war between FSX and XPX .

I am not flying all planes, I like the 152 and may get the 172 or one of the Piper's. If I keep getting more planes then the only thing I would do is line up the run and keep changing aircrafts smile.gif and never take off.


Thanks fellows. Will keep you guys posted once I get my Intel system.

Carenado has released a bunch of very high quality GA aircraft. Here's their latest, the Cessna Skymaster.

Yep I know about the 337 , she looks fantastic, Hey I cannot fly the Skymaster , that is a multi-engine craft and I am not trained to fly it frown.gif.

I'm saying this as a huge AMD follower and as a FSX junkie.

I am going with i5 k series, but the way I have my system tuned for FSX it is working pretty nicely with a decent FPS which includes all my settings maxed out except - Special Effects / Bloom / Flare / and traffic is set to 60% and road / sea tracffic is around 20-30% , so if I am in lets say KJFK (stock scenery) or KLGA (stock scenery) I pull between 19-28-29 , I am using the shadermod for the clouds. It is not that I am not happy using the 960t with FSX , it is only that using the Intel chips will provide a better smoothness overall and in the future the system will be add on proofed.

People do say to stay away from AMD GPU for FSX , the simple reason is the clouds which AMD cards don't handle well.
