Well with a username of Agrajag, I'm not surprised you like such things.:wink: Arthur Dent had such a large impact on Agrajag's lives, both literally and figuratively! Bravo to you, sir for the username! :cool:🍻

Thx. I picked the username back in the 80s when I first played a first-person shooter. I was thinking, "What names comes to mind that comes into existence, moves around a bit and then, almost immediately dies before repeating the process over and over?" Only one obvious name jumped to mind. About once every few years I get a comment from someone who gets it.

Pre ordered Premium Deluxe on Steam. Thought it was safer to stick with Steam, as it is very reliable. One thing that bothers me a wee bit, is developers like Flight Beam,are they going to embrace Steam versions of the new sim ?

Seems great right up until I see all the GNS avionics in the aircraft. The Garmin GTN series navigators have been around for a decade already and Garmin is already phasing out support of the old GNS line... 

 

In reality we should be able to build our own aircraft with preferred avionics. The aftermarket "commercial" for purchase add-on plugins leave a lot to be desired.

what is not included is long term. 5 years at 4.99 is $299 but 10 years if you buy premium is 50% less.

True, but kind of a moot point if you plan on keeping Game Pass anyway, because of all the other free games appearing every month etc.

It's also a great way to test MSFS against your current hardware etc.

I also prefer Steam, but am wondering if 3rd party developers are going to release for the Steam version?

I hope so!

Why wouldn't they? It literally makes no difference, and if anything, Steam version is going to be better than MS Store version since it won't install the sim to a protected, "secret" folder.

That's only for the downloader app.  You can specify where you want the sim to install.

My card has been charged now too. I'm wondering if the download of the release is being staggered based on geographic region. It might help server loads too. I've seen times posted such as 11pm on the 17th CST and Chock has posted 2300 on the 17th which I presume is UTC. Many other people are stating the 18th.


May all your landings be safe ones!

Who knows why they wouldn't, but no one knows yet is my point!

Exactly, it's a very probably, that the folders and files structure of MSFS will be the same for both store, Steam and MS. Only some people are still naively thinkink, that Steam get him some advantage with completely open folders and files structure, if they buy MSFS via Steam 🙂 . There will be only one advantage, that they will see MSFS as part of their games library on Steam, but nothing more.
