STANDARD / DELUXE / PREMIUM -- thoughts?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to see screenshots showing comparisons of "standard" -vs- "highly detailed" airports...

As you mention the 787 for P3D , presumably QW I’ll use that as an example.I’m currently using that exact product to prepare and get familiar with the aircraft before doing a type rating on the real aircraft. That product although not without its limitations is perfectly up to that task and is money well spent, for me at least. 
Paying extra to get my hands on a default 787-10 ...probably not.

I hold a 787/777 TR and couldn’t think of anything worse 😂

Premium for me, the perspective of it being a lot of money has to be compared to the amount of enjoyment for years to come that could be had by such a simulator.

the cost to enjoyment in my opinion warrants the financial contribution/support to obtain the premium version.

Which bit ?doing the type rating or using QW or default, or all of it ?😂

Im coming off the 744 and finding it all like flying a spaceship in comparison at the moment 😂

Using a desktop sim to help out. Did that on the Airbus, but find it much better just to get the panels printed and do the scans in my living room. 

You’ll like the 787. Superb air quality, cruises high and fast. Don’t scare yourself on the first double derated EFATO in the sim.....

It's literally been six years in the making, we've only heard about it last June

So you're saying that the game being in development for 6 years is a guarantee that the game will be in a finished state on launch day?

I‘ll go for the premium version, mostly because of the airports and the Dreamliner.

I'm going all in PREMIUM for me. Preordered and waiting, bring it on and good bye to FSX.

I’m using VR so the flight deck is  an accurate 3D 1:1 scale representation so it’s been very useful for familiarisation.

The trouble is I keep getting tempted to go and play in the T-38 instead of studying 😀

I have a feeling this is going to be a rushed release. I'll wait until launch day.

It was supposed to be going into beta, and now its suddenly a release. How typical.

And hey, what could possibly go wrong...........?

There has never been a Flight Sim that was ever "finished" in my 25 years of simming and believe that FS20 will be in development for the next 10 years still and yes there will be bugs on launch. But what I'm saying is that they have had plenty of time to make a product that in my opinion won't be 100% at launch but close enough. Look at the other flight sims right now, they are all broken even after all this time.

There is ONE major flaw with all of this, there's is not ONE independent review with gameplay of said product.
