I know over the last ten years, and in particular the last five, flight simulation as a hobby has waned considerably. Hovercontrol has continued to chug along and not go into obscurity like many other site have. That is a tribute to Jordan's vision and way he styled the community.

While I no longer have the time I would like to be as active as I would like I do try to at least keep an eye on things. I put this little poll together to get an idea as to where the community is focusing its flight time. Our choices of hardware and operating systems have expanded over the years. It will be interesting to see how the community has evolved.

Hey Chris. Good one. There's more data in this document as well.

Is it possible to make it multiple choice?

Currently I'm using FSX:SE along with FSPS FSX Booster 2013 to help tweak and increase my framerates as well!

They both work so great together!

I have been using fs9 for testing hardware due to the very fluid response that I am getting along with the Blue Thunder model from the download section here.

Lockheed Martin Prepar3D is on my computer for more than one year and for me at least, is the best.

For me is more than FSX on esteroids like some people use to say.

Graphics quality is amazing.

You "only" need a good PC to run it, which lucky me, I have :;):

Regards,

Martin

For helicopters I would prefer X-plane, but there are no good helicopters for it to the level I would expect. I have tried to develope something but it is way more complex than in the well known FSX-P3D platform. For that reason I bet for P3D.

It's a pity that none of you come on teamspeak and fly online  :D

Hello Chris

Still using with FS2004; I have a "love-hate" relationship with this mighty simulator. Main reason: lots of incredible addons to be wasted and a super steady rate of 40 fps.

Cheers,
Sergio

FS2004 (sometimes) and FSX Gold (for developing). I am dabbling into the world of X-Plane and DCS with P3D also in my future. For now, it's mostly FSX for all my major developments.

Still using FSX currently, have been looking at P3D but waiting to buy a house first so I can build a simpit with VR in the basement.  Just recently though I've seen videos for xplane 11 beta and it looks amazing as far as graphics go. So thats peeking my interest. I just hate to loose all the addons I have for FSX, especially the great aircraft from A2A

I have both FS9 and FSX installed but much prefer FS9 due to the amount of money I have spent on add-ons for it and ones (with my system) make FS9 look "almost as good" as FSX.

I think you need to change part of the poll from X-Plane 9 to X-plane 11 and add one vote for me on PC version.

Some of us evolve at a slower rate then others Chris. Then there are those like me that don't evolve at all.
