Is the Premium edition worth it? By X-Check

Recommended Posts

This is a great video that really puts the value proposition of the new sim in perspective.

It's hard to take it seriously when it starts right off the bat by assuming that the included planes are "payware quality" no one but the alpha testers under nda have seen just a small portion of the included planes.

Well he is in the alpha sooooo. Also with just the videos they've put out you can tell that there's a lot more functionality in these default planes than previous default offerings from previous sims, not to mention the fact that they look fantastic

The best option here is to sign up for a months gamepass for $1 and check out the default aircraft to see what you think of them and then make your choice if you think they're worth paying extra to get more of them or not.

It's personal opinion as to how good you think the aircraft are so only you can make that choice, but better to spend a dollar and make an informed choice than an extra $60 gamble and possibly be disappointed.

For me it has nothing to do with the aircraft, the jetliners it comes with, will be nothing like a PMDG or a FSL, but if people want to us MSFS for fun or like a game then they get more toys to play with. It's a good why to get introduced to flight simming. But don't kid yourself your anyway close to a PMDG, FSL, Maddog, Q400

I will buy the prem for the airports, a good high end addon airport cost around £25 so to a Euro simer like me EGLL/ EDDF/EHAM to name just 3 is a good deal.

Not all payware aircraft are PMDG or FLS level. The comparison is still good.

I'm quite sure the default aircraft will at least reach Carenado Level.

Yes. I would say, from what I've seen so far - and that ain't much - is the quality of the defaults will be on a par with Carenado in terms of systems modelling.  You can go fairly deep in to the systems but far from 100% accurately with real world counterpart.

Texture-wise of course - they'll naturally far exceed anything we've seen before.

 

** Sorry Farlis - you must have posted that up while I was writing this one.

Abacus, Wilco, and Carenado are all examples of Payware quality aircraft. 😉

Take the youtube videos with a grain of salt.

After August 18th. we will see real reviews and videos of the software.

There is absolutely no reason to pre-order. So once it releases you should be able to figure out if it's worth $120 to you.

Yes, I agree, it would be very hard to believe that the airliners are anywhere near FSL or even PMDG in terms of system depth and immersion. What I am hoping is that the GA aircraft are modeled well, proper start up and shut down procedures, operating characteristics and limits. If this is done I will be quite happy and I am hopeful this will be the case largely because of the (reportedly) improved flight models. If this is so, my transition to MFS will be pretty rapid as I can spend a long time flying GA aircraft in the "new world" while I wait for the airliners.

X-Check was invited but he got really sick and wasn't able to attend. But yeah, them inviting AirforceProud was a waste of money imo. Sure he has a huge following but he barely did anything with the opportunity he got.
