    Took the plunge!

    Got my 8 dvd's today, sure glad I didn't have to dl that whole package,lol Going to keep it basic for a while, until I get a handle on what's going on. Want to see the basic look of the sim, before I decide if I want to go into the higher detail mesh and textures, my machine passed the requirements by a lot, so should run it just fine, depending on the settings I use. I know of a lot of plugin's that are suggested to use, but want to get my feet wet first, before I dive into all that stuff.

    You will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of freeware out there. Especially try Mr. X sceneries.

    One of the things I enjoy about x plane 11 is I spend more time flying than waiting for things to load... a draw back I find with FSX. I keep finding freeware jems on xplane org... like a PBY Catalina that was payware but is now freeware... wonderful and a delight to fly... and the Aeroworx conversion of manfreds DC-3 is superb too.
