Hi After a long lay off I would like to get back into Flight Sim. I still have FS2004. Also a new PC is on the cards. There are new products on the market and I am finding it difficult to decide which one to go for. Do I wait for the new Microsoft? Do I go for Microsoft FSX. Ideally I would like to be able to char to someone face to face but is there a Flight Sim Shop anywhere in the UK. I live in North Yorkshire. Have been to the show at Telford but too many people around.

Any advice would be appreciated

I used to have FS2004. I upgraded to FSX a couple of years ago. Great sim but on my old PC (Windows vista) I have had a few problems, usually blue screen or screen freezes but sometimes it works well. You need to have an add on (FSX Acceleration pack) to get some add ons to work with FSX. I have thousands and thousands of flight sim hours, maybe I've been a bit obsessed with it when I was younger 😂
