Trees blocking the ends of runways?  Wow, we've never seen anything like THAT before!  😄

I personally like the YouTube comments regarding the exorbitant $10 to upgrade London. They range from conspiracy that MS left it unfinished for paid dlc, to admonishing MS for releasing an unfinished half-baked sim. 

Ah the entitlement.

There will also be a meltdown because the taxiways signs on the airports are not accurate to real life.

Possibly because they were... procedurally generated! 😄  You know, just like some people want the entire sim done. 🙂

Seeing that MS plans on regular updates every couple of months, I have no qualms at all about issues that are brought up.

I've been off flying in IL-2 Sturmovick since taking a hiatus from civilian simming in 2016, and that platform gets similar regular updates.  It's a wonderful experience seeing the sim consistently improve with each regular update that brings improvements to the core engine along with any new DLC, it's now better in every way from what it once was (and it was pretty good to begin with).   All the more reason to buy DLC and keep the development stream going.

So, reading and hearing about things like flight models, shrubberies, signs, you name it, just has me thinking that those who are overly concerned about it are just used to the old way of doing things, when you bought CD's and maybe if you were lucky got one or two patches and that was that.  Here in the 21st century, things are much more dynamic and beneficial to the consumer with a constantly evolving product - as long as the dev team is employed, and also as long as they are engaged and enthusiastic with the project and a supportive customer base as well.

Taxiway signs are kinda important to flight.....    My issue is simply if you're going to supply them than A) make them correct as they were in FSX, P3D etc, or B) supply us some means via map to navigate the procedurally assigned ones.  Absent those one of those two,  good luck getting to your runway, or your assigned parking spot on the return.....

Not a whole community, if I see, only one person has continuous problem with the trees 🙂 . I think, because he wasn't in forest for a long time 🙂 . Only one, but is very loudly screaming 🙂

hahaha..  this almost killed me. Felt those trees falling on me.

Navigraph just announced they will support MSFS and that will include the ability to see your airplane on the airport charts.

Well, to be 'fair"  we need to stick to our tweaking tradition.  jaja

There is a popup screen that will display the complete airport's layout on a zoomable map, complete with an aircraft icon showing your position.

I'm aware of the popup map, but there are no taxiway designations on that map.  I think that is the perfect place to show them, particularly as we head into VR....

hence my option B.  As some on here think that asking for these type of things are a "meltdown", I'd be interested to hear their feedback after a week or two post the 18th

when they can't move around a busy airport on the ground.  As they are now, they look great, but have absolutely no functional purpose for the pilot that would prefer not to follow

giant neon blue arrows.

It's pretty hilarious to see a community that has accepted cartoonish looking clouds for decades now complaining about tree height and placement in a sim that for the first time is actually doing weather simulation.

It's like people have forgotten how important weather is to flight. More than trees. 

Many people around now are too young to remember.  They don't remember how buggy FSX was upon release with everything asked for not making it into the sim.  They don't remember years of tweaking and hardware upgrades for marginal performance gains.  P3D changed all that a bit but what we had for years make me more than grateful for what's coming out now.
