Take off from anywhere in the world, flying some of the world’s most iconic aircraft to any one of 24,000 destinations. Microsoft Flight Simulator X Steam Edition has updated multiplayer and Windows 8.1 support.

Take the controls of aircraft such as the 747 jumbo jet, F/A-18 Hornet, P-51D Mustang, EH-101 helicopter and others - an aircraft for every kind of flying and adventure. Select your starting location, set the time, the season, and the weather.

FSX Steam Edition offers players a connected world where they can choose who they want to be, from air-traffic controller to pilot or co-pilot. Racing mode allows you to compete against friends with four types of racing, including Red Bull Air Race courses, the unlimited Reno National Championship course, as well as cross country, competition sailplane courses and fictional courses like the Hoop and Jet Canyon. Test your skills with three different levels of difficulty, from simple pylon racing to racing highly challenging courses in a variety of weather conditions.

FSX Steam Edition enables pilots to fly the aircraft of their dreams, from the De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver floatplane and Grumman G-21A Goose to the AirCreation 582SL Ultralight and Maule M7 Orion with wheels and skis. Add to your collection of aircraft and improve the fidelity of your world with FSX Add-ons.

The inclusion of AI-controlled jetways, fuel trucks and moving baggage carts, adds extra realism to the experience of flying at busy airports.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition (FSX: Steam Edition) is functionally similar to the boxed version of Microsoft Flight Simulator X (MSFSX). We have worked extensively with third party developers to make sure the two products can work alongside each other, however due to the wide range of add-on products available for MSFSX, we cannot guarantee that your existing content will work with Microsoft Flight Simulator X Steam Edition.

The Flight Simulator X Software Development Kit (SDK) is not included with FSX: Steam Edition.

If you already have MSFSX installed on your PC and are concerned about running the two games alongside each other, you may wish to consider installing FSX: Steam Edition on a separate PC.

If you already have MSFSX and add-ons installed they will only be accessible through your existing installation. They will not be duplicated across the original edition and Steam Edition of the simulator.Included Aircraft

Microsoft Flight Simulator X reviews and comments

Best Flight Simulator I've ever seen!!!!!!!! The FSX is already a few years old, but in my opinion it is still the BEST Flight Simulator that is available to buy. There are many different mods e.g. on the Website of Flyawaysimulation https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/fsx/or Hovercotrol http://www.hovercontrol.com/cgi-bin/ifolio/imageFolio.cgi?search=&cat=&x=0&y=0&bool=phrase (HUBSCHRAUBER ZND SCENERIEN) In Addition, of course, there are also mods on many other Websites. THIS SPIEL IS A MUST FOR EVERY FLUGSIMULATOR FAN no matter if it's a helicopter, Lienium plane, F18 fighter jet, or sport and free time fans

Good but only with a lot of Effort! So I rate the Game 2mal .D. the Reason explained quite simply. 1.The Basic Game-Grottoes Bad, the Graphics is more than just outdated and who has fun in it in a Blurred pile of an Airport to look for, and no Interest in the Game elaborately to modal, and a lot of Time to plug in with Graphic fine tuning and Computing Power, which should leave the Fingers directly from the Game. The Flight Simulator looks like the last Crap without all this. Unfortunately, there is something bad about this, which unfortunately can only be fixed with elaborate Tweaks and a lot of pre-knowledge or clean work. " Namely that you can't even play The Game with a Nasa Calculator Ruckle-free, although it's Ancient Without adjusting the CFG so that the Game gets with high Texture resolutions and co.Don't get the total Collapse. 2. The 2nd Variant is the Game with many Mods and Add-ons that are very expensive to eat a lot of Memory and you have to get painstakingly from one side or another. Then, however, the Game looks really good for its Age but in my Opinion not even ran with REX 4 and AND FTX Global etc. at X-Plane 10 from the Scenery. But Is really worth its Price if we leave the Money for the whole Add-ons at the side. A Giant Plus point here is the Add-on Airbus X which really shines with great Sound shots of a lot of Features and a nicely animated Airbus Range. My Conclusion is who wants to fly off directly and have a nice Game with him without having to do anything, the Should resort to X-Plane 10 -11 or another new Flight Simulator and not to the FSX X. However, whoever has the necessary Small Money and The Time and nerves to modden and the game to Modden and provide the game with a lot of Add-ons for the worth it is still to access here-because you really still get the Game on an Attraction. The hardware to Software Performance, on the other hand, is underidic and difficult to fix. So preferring to weigh up beforehand whether it's worth the Effort to you or not. PS in November comes out X-Plane 11 and would probably be the best Investment for someone who now wants to go into the Skies. I Recommend the Game anyway because I only have one Choice between Yes or No and I moded it and with a lot of Add-ons games and it really fun there. Spelling Mistakes are allowed to be kept.
