Worth investing in P3D addons or wait?

Recommended Posts

I want to buy add-on scenery but maybe I'll wait for this. Don't want to waste money buying something I'll only use less than 6 months.

I will be quite restrictive, but if something very sought after (in my case a good Ford Trimotor) shows up, I'll buy it.

We do not know when MSFS will be available, could be months, maybe even a year. And I'll be waiting until helicopters are available too.

That's off course up to you, but I have decided not to buy ANY addons what so ever, untill MS2020 is out.

Interesting, why is that?

The new sim is pre-alpha.  That means it's not even a product.  I would suspect release of a product is about a year away.

When A2A releases the Piper J3 Cub for P3Dv4 I'll buy it.  I don't have anything else on my must-have list.

What I understand is that the previewers had access to a sim with an almost complete slick UI, weather, night and day lighting, three aircraft, and the possibility to fly over the world (one flew in Portugal). I don't know what a "product" is in your books but it sounds like one is shaping up nicely to the simple simmer that I am.

If they're still calling it a pre-alpha... they consider it extremely far away from product release.  Since you're not the one deciding what the finished product is... doesn't matter what you think... they'll only release what they consider a finished product... and a pre-alpha is a long ways from release-to-market.

A "finished product" obviously it is not but this is not what you said.

Well... one should only sell finished products (hence the term product, which implies it is complete and finished and ready for release-to-market).

I agree although Ed is technically correct.  But your statement is correct too.  I don't know what more they can do to perfect the simulator.  They have obviously been working on it for a long time before the E3 announcement.  The sim certainly looks polished and complete to me.  I do not think anyone knows exactly how polished and complete the simulator is other than the techs at Microsoft.  No sim has ever been released with perfection and with all the features everyone wants.  Soon after release, there's a issue with FPS, stuttering, blurry textures in Omaha, and many other things causing lots of discussions.  These issues are why AVSIM remains the Premier Simulation Resource where members can exchange information and discuss potential issues.  I hope Ed is not trying to bring down AVSIM by allowing a perfect product to be released sometime in far future...

I already have bought too many addons, some that I haven't even installed yet ie Rex Skyforce, and lots of scenery addons for areas I fly in, so I believe I'm covered untill MS2020 is out. It looks like it has almost "everything" included like scenery, active sky, etc and from what they say, it will be possible to use P3D airports in it, so that's why.
