Check this SIM out. They say it's the most realistic SIM you can own, you can fly all kinds of aircraft!!

I checked it out and it looks cool. You could make your own designs and they will each have different flight models. And you get the whole world and Mars. But I'm getting LO-MAC. \:\)

"but its not as realistic as FS9"

Your right, its more realistic.

MSFS has eye candy and button pushing, but X-plane's flight models actually apply aerodynamics, unlike MSFS's which is based on pre-written numbers and code.

As far as flight models go, X-plane is far better than FS

I can't wait untill it comes out. Looks really great, and I'll miss playing USAF, but I will still play it from time to time. USAF is just getting old, but with all the new models its still very fun for me.

For X-plane, it is better for flight models. Thats what I think.

1st of all, i have them both (X-Plane 7.x/6.x and FS2002/04)
i haven't flown X-Plane in a long time , but it was fun (i never play civic planes for real \:D )
and the FS2002 is also great and lots of fun
since only X-Plane have a demo, u should try it
and see how ot goes ;\)
about FS2004, if u have the money and will
why not ?, with the proper add-ons (that could be supllied by me ) u can really enjoy some great things about the game

2nd of all, thank \:D
buying Lo-Mac should be as first priority
but if it will come out on time \:\(

Cheers

Which would you prefer?
I have none of them yet to, so I'm not sure whats better. I've been waiting fot LO-MAC for some time, and I'm going to get that for sure.

X-plane is insanely more expensive for some hugely odd reason than msfs. A few years ago it was in boxed form in stores at 40 bucks but only one version then it went right back to order form at last I heard about $80 which is about what it cost before it was tried in stores. I got fs 2004 and x-plane 6.0 both are good in there own ways and although I'm not trying to bash the software itself in my opinion the price for x-plane is just plain nuts. I see no reason why it would be valued in that price range. As to what is better graphically it would be fs 2004 no doubt about it x-planes aircraft are at the point right now graphically that is about where msfs planes were at in fs98 but for a real sense of flight I'd say it'd have to be x-plane.
