Well. A couple of things I have to say. 

- Seasons: Just the way they speak about them, God, seems like there are taking it really serious. It’s not just different tree colors. They are even thinking about bird migrations! Just wow. That’s just another level (I didn’t saw any animals on second trailer so I was starting to worry about them haha). 

- Partnerships: Again. The same as with the last update. The way they talk about the non announced yet make it seems something big is coming. And don’t get me wrong. What we have now it’s awesome. From the Cub to de 747!

- Subscription: I don’t really understand this part. I don’t know if they are talking about game pass for those who wanna try only, or for everyone. Idk, help is appreciated.

Game pass is a service that allows you to play a lot of games. I think their library is over 100 Titles. For x.xx dollars a month, you get to play all of the Titles. MSFS 2020 will be a Title in the Game Pass library.

They have a lot of AAA games to come to that library. He said if you don't have 60, or 70 bucks to spend out right for a title you want, you can pay x.xx a month to get your title and a hundred others.

I think it will be two tier, like Outlook 365. If you just want MSFS its XX.XX one time purchase. Or if you want, for x.xx a month with Game Pass Level X, you get MSFS 2020 and a hundred other games.

How much is Navigraph a month? 8.99 Euros. How much is your Netflix, or Hulu, or Amazon prime. Just some examples.

They also routinely have deals for Game Pass.  There was one at E3 this year, where people could convert their existing Xbox Live or Game Pass subscriptions to 'Game Pass Ultimate", for $1, up to three years.  Basically paying a few bucks a month for access to all of Microsoft's first-party games/sims, as well as a library of over 100 other games that is constantly rotated and updated with new stuff.

Game Pass is an incredible deal.  Even more so if you also have an Xbox to go with your PC.

Don't count on ever getting the proper info on licensing of any kind from Microsoft until the thing is getting released. I've worked with Microsoft's products for everyday work for years and this always has been a nightmare with them.

0 ‚ā¨ for all of these from my side. I¬†prefer to give the 10 ‚ā¨ to a local cinema.¬†

Aside of this, I looked how MS handles other premiium titles, like Forza Horizon 4. This is a mixture of several offers with different levels to access features, and there is even a free demo available. Plus, as already mentioned, discounts for Game Pass owners. I expect something flexible for MFS as well.

This may be a bit unusual for the veteran simmers, and some may break into tears, but even them will adapt.

I expect MS also to offer MS/Asobo-made addons. I never understood why MS left the Addon market around FS6, after publishing successful titles like the Southern California Expansion Pack, Las Vegas, and others. And, while some expect to never having to buy any addons for MFS anymore, I forsee the addon market to explode, after the present hiatus.

Kind regards, Michael

*IF* they include a subscription model for access to the live, Azure-powered version of the game, I'll put $5 down on it being fairly inexpensive, and also including a steady drip of new content from ASOBO as part of that subscription - new planes, etc.

Alternatively, maybe they could keep it "free with purchase", and sell their own add-ons.  Considering they will apparently be competing against $140 planes from PMDG, ASOBO could sell them for like $60 and look like a bargain by comparison, haha.

That was a really great interview.  It's awesome to see the devs having some fun.  It's even better to see how serious they are about getting things right.  I really love these guys.

**Edit:  ...and for the love of God, the ducks!!  Must have the ducks migrating properly..ROFL.  Probably the best line in the entire interview!

Why a duck ? The interview of the French dev when he spoke of the ducks, brought to my mind the old Chico/Groucho routine :wink: !  

 Don't overdo it, guys ! We don't ask for migrating ducks at release, snow and Fall foliage would be great to start with for colder seasons ! Then you could add migrating ducks in a DLC (leaving the room now).

I agree.¬† To quote them, I'd take "...lame-a** color changes..."¬†and snow on release.¬† ūüôā¬† ¬†
