Tim,
Great post and I couldn't agree with you more in your analysis. I use FSX:SE, P3Dv4 and X-Plane11, but XPL is my go to sim every time. They're are strong arguments all around for each sim, but at the end of the day it's what makes you the most comfortable and happy! :D

I do have a couple suggested add-ons:

1) Better Push Back (https://github.com/skiselkov/BetterPushbackC/releases) - This allows you to visually set your pushback of ANY aircraft in your inventory, start it and go about your business starting the engines and finishing up pre-flight checks while the ground crew takes care of the rest.

2) 737-900 Ultimate Pre-Release (https://forum.thresholdx.net/files/file ... re-release) - One of the most complete 737's I have ever seen, still in beta, but FREE!

Good luck and don't hesitate to ask questions!

I am at a loss for what to do with ACARS with Xplane; I just purchased the full XPlane 11 version off steam with the CRJ200 (which I love flying the 700, so good start) and I cannot figure out how to setup the Smartcars?

I have the XAcars installed as a plugin but don't understand what it is doing? Smartcars just keeps saying I need to be at the departure airport to start flight?

Make sure you have xpuipc in your plugins directory. It’s like FSUIPC for X-Plane and required for any ACARS interface.

There is also a cfg file you will need to put your machines ip in the xpuipc. Let me know if you still have troubles

Dave, that ip, its unique to our home network, is that ok?

Also, what ACARS do you recommend using that will allow me to report flying stats to the VA? thanks!
