What changes have you made in Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition from the Microsoft-supplied boxed version of FSX?
Posted by on 08 July 2015 11:22 AM

This is a re-release of FSX Gold Edition so you should not expect dramatic differences.  However, we have updated it to include all standard Steam functionality, we’ve removed CD checking and combined the components of Gold Edition into a single installation.  The major change we've made is in replacing the now-defunct Gamespy multiplayer systems with Steam features, enabling multiplayer to work seamlessly once again.  Our aim was in this first instance has been to ensure that the software will run for as many people as possible rather than radically improving or updating it.
