"If you like updating sounds files, software and electrical engineering than DCS is for you."
Hardly the case in my experience. I've had dcs for almost 17 years and never updated a sound file for an engine (they sound great to me), I hate electrical engineering (i just know how to wire a layout in a star wiring pattern) and have only updated the TIU three times to utilize new and improved software features. I get all 9s and 10s on my four levels, 10 loops, over 20 sidetracks and isolated blocks. I have no doubt people here are sincere in their difficulties. It just hasn't been that way for me. Not even close. Love my dcs command and conventional control.
