  • MSFS 04- essentials

    Sooo, I finally kicked my own behind and ordered MSFS a few minutes ago... and even though I am sure there's a topic like this, I have to say: I COULDN'T FIND IT! Also, I'm so hyped up I probably didn't put in a proper effort in looking for it... I'm sowwy...

    So I'm making my own...

    Basically, I want your tips and tricks on how to get started...

    Any (free) add-ons you simply can't live without? Because then I'll just download them from the beginning

    Any payware I should start saving for?

    Any tips and tricks will do... the baby doesn't arrive before tuesday or wednesday or something, so I've got heaps of time to set everything up before playing.

    AND of course: I'm interested in some VS aircraft... do tell if you have come across some good ones (even if they're payware... I'll just have to save up for that )

    I thank thee in advance, mighty MSFS gurus!

    EDIT: any screenshots of the payware/freeware you're talking about would be highly appreciated

    Hey Janni-Chav
    www.avsim.com for all your free downloads
    You'll get nearly everything on there
    There isn't really any pay-ware you can't live without but theres some good ones out there
    If you want any payware speak to me via msn and i'll get some 'cheaper' for you

    Regards Sam

      Thank you, sam! I would like to hear people's opinion on specific addons they would recommend as I'll probably download a lot of sh*tty stuff before I find something that's actually worth the disk space
      I'll remember your offer and take you up on it when I have some money! Thanks mate!

        You should try the iFly 744 off avsim.It's got a neat cockpit and cool other stuff.It's like 60meg but worth it

          there's also loads of truly excellent freeware sceneries available, not all on avsim though.

          another program which is handy is fsscreen which allows you to make screenshots

          the only thing you really need is a joystick, flying without is rather hard

            as for payware, I'd get the Level-D 767 and the PMDG 737NG, freeware, anything by Project Opensky.


            btw, if you have any specific planes or sceneries you want, ask me over msn and I'll see what I can do.

            yeah be sure to get a joystick, and dont bother with FSScreen, Snapper is much better

              I'd slap in some payware aircraft and Scenery's in Tomorrow

                Janni, this is completely free and a pretty good addon too - search for 747s on avsim/flightsim, and then download ones which have a model made by Meljet. I seriously think they're the best freeware 747 developers out there.

                  The Meljet 777 is a MUST HAVE! That is the COOLEST plane out there!! You should get it!

                      My favourite payware add-ons that I've actually bought include:

                      Active sky 6 http://www.hifisim.com/

                      And the Level D 767-300 http://www.leveldsim.com/sevensix_home.asp

                      Also recommend any freeware water texture replacements

                      If you don't wanna pay huge bucks for add-ons , do what I do , go halves with a mate as most add-ons usually let you activate 2 or 3 times

                        got any screenshots of Active Sky 6? I've been thinking of buying it, but I'm not sure if its worth it.
