Because no release Date was announced yesterday, I´m really thinking about that MSFS will release at the end of 2020. Maybe they will announce the date at the E3. Unfortunaly

 

Pretty sure the original E3 trailer said something about holidays 2020? Which would make sense as that’s when the new XBox is expected to release as well. Although I could be combining things.

MSFS should also come for Xbox one. They never talked about the new Xbox. But that isn't important for me.

Yesterday I thought, that X019 would be perfect to announce the release date. But maybe we are far away, because the next big show is E3.

.......tell me that 748 doesn't look better if equally good compared to PMDGs. I mean partnership with Boeing does have its benefits lol. These guys are wizards. They have so much information. Insanely advanced tech, finance, partnership with major aircraft manufacturers and talent to put all that to work. Gentleman welcome aboard the Asobo hype train !

It takes a lot more than being able to create a good looking 3D model to deliver a super accurate representation of all aspects of the real plane. It will be interesting to see the level of complexity and realism that is provided with the default aircraft....

  • Zibo equivalent for the A320neo and the 747-8i. I may be proved wrong, but I'm not expecting a highly detailed airliner with lots of functionality in a default. Yes, I know there was a discussion with the head of MSFS where he stated a FMC will be included. But how detailed will the systems actually be? May be a 3PD comes in to give them more depth.

I sincerly hope that the default aircraft offerings will be extremely detailed, at 3rd party level.

And 3rd party developers would be more than welcome to offer *additional* models... but not the ones already existing in the sim (because the default models in the sim would be so detailed already that making add-on versions would not make sense).

As long as I can get my hands on the alpha, I couldn't really care less when it's coming out 😄

I think they're taking a "when it's ready" approach, while predicting that it will be out sometime in 2020. I think E3 2020 will be a good time for an approximate release date.

I think the sim will come much earlier than end of 2020, the way they have been bringing out information in the last weeks, episodes (next week we have the 3rd and in 2 weeks we have the 4th), the fact the game is already playable, makes me think we are not far away. 

They have a very strong marketing dpmt and they are planning very carefuly when they are releasing what and I do not think they can keep up this level of info in the coming 9 months or so. 

That they haven't shown the release date, I think it has more to do that it will depend on the Alpha 1 and 2 tests and may slightly vary depending on those.

My guess Q1 2020 ;-).

Q1 would be a dream 😄. But I don't think that they can push through alpha and beta testing in only 4 month. I am hoping for next summer.

I must apologize that I am mainly a GA flyer "only". If you ask for my opinion, I hope the default planes are accessible to the average user without going through several 100pp of Boeing precision manuals, in the same tradition as the default planes up to FSX were.

Thus I hope the included liners will NOT be study-level (albeit sport a realistic flight model, of course). I still think scalability was one of the strongest features of MFS until FSX. Those who want PMDG-detail with all hydraulic features, failures etc. can (and will) get the corresponding addons.

Project lead Jörg Neumann already mentioned in one of the clips (certainly MFS tailored) tutorials which would be a good start. 

Kind regards, Michael

The water with the waves crashing at 1.02 minutes into the video.

Just WOW!

I missed this the first time around, I think it was so realistic it just registered as normal.

And that either pushes up the overall price of the sim or they become a >$10 DLC (we're all assuming that the airliners are going to be free based on precedent from ACES).

It makes it harder for them to make it accessible to new gamers and the "no pilot gets left behind" philosophy.

It would also go against the comments in the video where Microsoft/Asobo acknowledged that 3rd parties have much more detailed knowledge of an aircraft than they do. So they would leave open space for 3rd party developers to bring their products to MSFS.

I  don't. Why?

I thought it would be obvious in my video of real world ... no need to get defensive of MSFS, but at 250+ kts (as in MSFS video) the heat from the exhaust just doesn't look like what was presented by MS/Asobo (it's as if aircraft velocity is having no impact on heat expansion) ... in addition you can clearly see the engine exhaust in my video is more directional even at idle waiting for clearance ... MSFS FX is more XP11 engine heat FX which is not accurate at all (more a distraction than any resemblance to reality).  AND, that's fine, doesn't need to be accurate out of the box, hence the entry of folks like OldProp (and/or other add-ons) with their replacement FX. 

There will be plenty of opportunity for improvements, this is NOT a negative.

Cheers, Rob.

What about 1:39 at the trailer, that’s not wingflex? 

Looks like it is – I was hoping for more tho. Does it flex more in real life or is it like that?
