Yes and no, insomuch as if that is fun or not @TheAlmightySnark. With no intention of disagreeing with you in the least, both AH2 and FSE have their pros and cons, from my point of view. I’m not holding a brief for either (or I’m holding a brief for both, LOL!), but here’s how I see it…
AH2 does establish you with a base to start off from. It also has AI pilots. In no time, it had me at a desk job, as I leased three Twin Otters and set two of them up on automated passenger routes around Colombia, and before I knew it I was doing my old IRL job again of Revenue Management. I must have a soft spot in my heart for that old tenure, because there I was going through load factor statistics, calculating CASM vs. RASM, keeping an eye on the operation for peak passenger times (if they existed in the game at all), and adjusting ticket prices, turn around times, and connections. I got really carried away with that, and was just finding cargo jobs for the third Twin Otter and putting my dedicated AI Angel Flight pilots onto that on an ad-hoc basis.
In short, there’s a very addictive airline game hiding in there, too, so much so that I stopped flying P3D. I had been everywhere in Colombia already early on and had no desire to keep revisiting the same airports again and again, until I could afford a base farther afield.
Now, FSE. There’s a way to play it, I’ve found. The key is “go with the flow”, so to speak. Yes, it was horrendous, to start with, but it will take you around the world, and every flight can be from a different location, if you are using the search function to find where your desired aircraft is. There is something fun, I think, about taking up the challenge of operating from where ever you find it. And I have to fly the sim, to play FSE.
@EightBall I looked for it, to see what you’re doing, but couldn’t find it. I hope you don’t mind if I do a little exposition of a flight on FSE of my own
