I am not laughing at you but with you! One of the main reasons I started on FS was because I was introduced to Pilotwings64 earlier and loved it so much.

As far as "texture mods" go, I would recommend TileProxy. It takes scenery from Yahoomaps, google maps, etc. You can configure it to do whatever you want, and whatever service you would like. It really adds a sense of realism to flying and if your internet connection is good then you won't have a problem. I use it all the time now and I love it.

Also, I would recommend a joystick for this game. I have played it with a controller and it is difficult just because it is so much more complex than PilotWings ever was.

Id say take a good look through this thread(i know its massive but its worth it)as it seems its been a very good starting place for many of NVNew'es non simmers and you'll see your not the first person who decided to give it ago based on just checking out this mega thread

As for Mods there are 1000's out there Alot are Payware but there are some great freeware mods aswell that this threads regulars poster add as we come across them,

A good place to start for freeware is the file libary at Flightsim.com
(you need to signup to download)

As for addon freeware texture replacements check out

FSX What a Wonderful World

or go back a few pages and checkout tileproxy or if your willing to pay check out GEX enchanced (soon to be on my shopping list i think)

Hope that helps some

I would highly recommend FEX -Flight EnviromentX- with replaces cloud, sky and sea textures with hi-res versions, you can design and upload your own to share with the community.

I also love my Horizon Simulations GenerationX UK VFR photoscenery - the best photoscenery if you want to fly over England and Wales.

Both in action here.

How about a serial for it. You can't find FEX in Germany on the market. I downloadet it but I didn't find a serial. This is my daily occupation in the last three months but nobody wants to share a serial.

I'm sure Flight1 will be glad to share the serial with you once you've paid them for the product like you are supposed to ;-)

question .... I am curious if anyone knows if I can get a flight addon from Abacus "Military Aircraft Collector's Edition" to work in FSX. It says it's for FS 2004, but I wanted to know if I could get it to work in FSX.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Payware as its part of the FSX acceleration addon which is excellent value for money,ive payed more for just single aircraft or weather addons in the past

Just finishing my mammoth reinstall of FSX and its addons after nuking vista due to a few problems,i think im gonna drop for GEX later on....if i do i'll post a few screenies
