Or sim people have gotten wind of all the incredible freeware available for this high FPS good looking flight sim.
Aerofly has the most stuff on fight-sim.org compared to the other sims on the market.
For example the community has and is making its own version of TE GB for example, and thats just on example.
Production of such high quality freeware has spiked recently.
Maybe word has gotten out, that if you want an immersive sim with great ortho, meshes and auto gen without paying an arm and a leg or anything actually for add-ons, Aerofly is the go to for this.
That is very attractive for casual sim gamers who may wish to dabble in flight sims but not invest a big financial outlay.
Its why I'm involved in Aerfly rather than the other sims on the market.
