#FeatureFriday : new com about A320

Recommended Posts

Three posts on msfsofficial instagram about A320

  • How does a #FeatureFriday on the Airbus A320neo sound? This plane is currently being tested by our Alpha players. Though it is still the first version, we have many systems already included. (1/3) #MicrosoftFlightSimulator

  • A320 Features: Fly by Wire system including some of the flight-envelope protection features and new airliner-specific autopilot and auto-throttle functions, MCDU (flight computer), FCU (Autopilot control panel) functions, SID’s and STAR’s, High altitude flight... (2/3) #FeatureFriday #MicrosoftFlightSimulator

I do hope that this aircraft is still within use of an average user rather than having to be an expert.

You actually do not have to be an expert to get an Airbus up and running. Sure, if you do it as realistic as possible - following guidelines and checklists - it would be demanding. But to fly from A to B, it does not require much. Programming the CDU might be the most challenging task.

That being said, I guess MS might also introduce a "flight ready" or even a "guide you through" mode (like teasered in the cockpit feature discovery series).

They have mentioned the "guide you through" mode will be available in all aircrafts, so I can't see why it won't be there in the A320 and the 747 as well.

I hope the opposite.  I have found it very satisfying learning to fly the FlightSimLab buses.  The atsu system and FMC are awesome so I hope they make it very realistic.  It is a very friendly aircraft to fly and worth a little effort for average users and those old guys like me who love aviation!

Yes, lets not hold back progress.

They've said that it will still be accessible to all.

I mean it's going to be ported to X-Box later on.

Love that first screenshot, if Asobo just added a touch of wear an tear to the 320 it would take it to that next level, it would be hard to tell it was a simulator at all for me.

Also Feature Friday looks to have more meat on the bones than wing Wednesday. Next step short videos and they have a decent replacement for the feature episodes that appear to be coming to an end.

Gonna have FSLabs and PMDG for that 😉 Default planes will never be study level.. Honestly I feel like they're wasting time trying to create a somewhat good airplane... We've always had add-ons for that. They should be focused on the simulator core.

I really hope this mentality of ‘expensive addon = study level else trash’ mentality dies. Not everyone can or are are willing to fork out hundreds of dollars on addons, especially not beginners. If Asobo is able to release a somewhat study level aircraft as default with an easy mode for beginners, I’m all for it. PMDG and FSL should have their place, but not by discounting quality default aircrafts where available.

I'm sorry but if you can't or aren't willing to buy top class add-ons, then you have to live with the fact that you're not gonna be using top class add-ons.

I'd like a Ferrari, can't afford it right now. Doesn't mean that I'm accusing my car manufacturer of not selling me a Ferrari-like car for a cheap price.

So you don't think they should level-up every aspect of the sim? This brings competition and every addon in a completely different level of authenticity and that's how things evolve, they complexify, you just can't go the other way and we should be grateful for that.

In case you didn't notice, we enter a new age in flight simulation thanks to Microsoft and Asobo. Is it a law somehewe telling only addon developers are entitled to make "study level" addons?

Didn't you notice the entire planet is at Orbx True Earth level? This doesn't seem to bother you, but aircrafts should be left behind? Your mind is totally set in the past.

We are talking about a flight sim here and if you think they are wasting their time trying to bring aircrafts to the next level you are probably wrong. Oh, and if you think they should focus on other core features, you are probably wrong too, they will cover all of them.

Why? Asobo has much more people and other sources, than 3PD studios. There isn't any reason, why they can't make plane close to "study" level. If they make similar plane, they set a new level of default planes and 3PD must bring some more, if they want our money. I think it's a good bussines 🙂

If Asobo/MS can develop a study level/near study level aircraft (and I don't see why they can't, especially after the sim is released) at a very reasonable price say $40-60, the competition i.e. 3rd party devs might have to reduce their prices to compete.

If MSFS is the success that it has the potential to be, the economies of scale might keep the price down. To appeal to the general masses I don't see why a near study level aircraft developed by someone like Asobo/MS can't have a gentle learning curve/tutorial built in so it appeals even to the more casual simmer.

*new GPU planned (30xx or Big Navi) when I can get one but I may have to wait a short time (ie the more vRam the better or whatever I can afford) to see what's best for me.
