Where to get the best Payware

I don't know if this thread can be sticked, but I would like to get a list over places to buy decent payware dedicated for FSX. I also would like to see peoples review on the payware add-ons they own.

I'm totally new to dedicated payware for FSX. I think such a list and reviews will help other sim enthusiast as well. :lol:

Anything from Abacus is pretty much a must have.  I wouldn't recommend anything else.

I disagree completely, especially in their airliner department - some utilities such as FSDS are useful but their aircraft are often sub-freeware, IMO :lol:.

:D You cant be serious?! All of the models that abacus produce are crappy, un realistic and don't look like the right thing at all, UdWbMp: DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY ABACUS!!
There are freeware planes that are much better than abacus, seriously :P

PMDG is great payware, they have 747, 737, Beech 1900D. They are quite expensive
Aerosoft.com - Great website with many nice addons, espically the mega frankfurt
Leveld- fantastic 767, a must have
jsut some, i know more for FS9 though

+1

For example look at their 787...They haven't even wasted their precious time to model a proper nose, fuselage and a real cockpit with FMS, same applies for their other airliners.

If you are looking for the best General Aviation airplanes then www.carenado.com and realairsimulations.com should be your first choice.

If you are looking for the best(IMO) military aircrafts then you should visit www.alphasim.co.uk

If you are looking for detailed, very realistic with functioning FMS aircrafts then you should have a look at www.leveldsim.com for their 767-300ER and www.precisionmanuals.com for their upcoming 747-400 for FSX.

If you are looking for the best graphics enhancement then you should get active sky X and X graphics from www.hifisim.com

Of course there are many quality scenery add-ons like Ultimate Terrain X, Flytampa TNCM, Aerosoft Helgoland etc.

If you want aircraft that have had alot of time and effort spent on making the systems as "real as it gets", then have a look at PMDG. They are currently working on an MD-11 specifically for FSX. Personally I cant wait till it comes out. The 737 NG's made by them were excellent along with the 747.  :lol: Aircraft detail and attention to realism and quality are very high too.

"Doh!", just realised two people had already mentioned PMDG.  :censored:  

In that case, you could always go for CaptainSim.

They are vaguely similar to PMDG, however they have two distinct and popular aircraft. The 757-200, 300 and Freighter, along with their new 727. These are both designed for FSX, superb detail and realism. The VC's are extremely detailed and the systems are again very complex. Usually they are expensive but at the moment they have a sale on with some very good deals :) .

The aircraft exteriors are extremely detailed too. Looks awesome.  :lol:

:lol: yeah Captain sim all the way I have the b727100 and 200 series, planes are really nicely detailed, the only negative is that they kill frame rates, but if you have a decent cpu whats the difference between 40 and 30 frame rates    absolutely nothing.

abscaus forget junk it I tried their products with fs9 gave me a bad taste go with the Captain, only negative hurts frames

The 757, (being released over a year ago too), still doesn't have any 'detailed systems' - CS still haven't released Block F :lol:.

I think you smoked out a whole weed field judging by your "recommendation" if i may say that it's a recommendation because it's actually not. Do you understand what i am saying or do i need to rephrase myself?

abacus is the worst possible crap that you can ever find for FS9. Freeware is much better.
