BACK TO FLIGHT SIM
Having been a user of FS2004 in the past I would like to get back into Flight Sim. The question is which is the best product which can be subjective. I know of FSK, X-Plane etc and the impending new Microsoft product but can anybody advise on the most suitable product.

All depends on what you want out of the sim and how much money you're willing to sink into both a rig that'll run it satisfactorily plus any payware addons for it,
Though there's a mountain of both free and commercial addons available for FSX, support for 32bit programs is definitely waning.
That basically leaves you with P3D or X-Plane, unless you want to wait for the release of MS2020, whenever that'll be.
P3D's EULA excludes it's use for 'entertainment' purposes, though there's a growing amount of freeware (take a look at Avsim.com or Flightsim.com) and commercial addons available. (eg: JustFlight... )
X-Plane is downloadable as a limited but fully functional demo, so you can at least try it out.
Every simmer will have their own favourite...in the end it'll be your individual choice.
Still using FSX and Traffic X, works best for me, its old now but still very enjoyable, just need to get that unhandled Error fixed in traffic x.
If you can still get FSX and Traffic X I would go with that.
