For Some Time - No More Glass Cockpits Please

Recommended Posts

Flying all the default planes which is all we can do, only the C152 and the 172 in the Premium edition with analogue  give me real satisfaction.

First because thats how i flown all my life. Second? because I dont think its fun to fly in Flight Simulator 4 (yes you read well: 4) style of cockpit.

The two gigantic MFDs occupy nearly the whole monitor, and its interior graphics are FS4 quality. So by staring at them all the time you are using FS4 hahah

If i had a real plane i would love those Garmins, because its REAL life, everything is real, in flightsim you turn around and you see your room, furniture, nothing is real, so at least in the monitor I wish something to please my eyes besides the scenery. In the cockpit, if you have a vintage Boeing from 1970s its much more pleasurable, the feeling of being there.

With Glass Cockpits I feel FS4

An advice to developpers from me/user:

"the sim is saturated with Glass, if you want to sell, go for a plane with analogue, if its a classic, even better"

A glass cockpit Baron is just not right.

I kinda feel the same, also why I got premium deluxe for those extra aircraft’s.
The old instrument 172 was important to me.
I do fly the Beech now with glass, and can enjoy it, but prefer old school in the long run.

The first plane I tried in MSFS20 was actually the old yellow piper.

I've always felt this way also. I always choose the 172 with steam gauges over the glass. But hey in the FS world I guess we are all stinking rich, you don't have to settle for the 152. 🤣

You know why they did it?

From a cockpit design perspective, Glass Cockpits are easier to make, just throw two big MFDs and the rest of design work is very little. So when I see a payware with Glass...I know (few hours went into it to make the cockpit)

Also in analogues the overall cabin frames require research and high photography

I love the modern all glass cockpit planes. Looks so clean and high tech! I don't care for the steam and analog gauges.

It's exactly why I bought the super sexy version too. I wanted a proper 172 with steam gauges.

Actually that's not true, glass cockpit is much more advanced. They have to get the avionics and technical side of it right. It's the side that you don't see.

I prefer analog because that is what I learned on in FS, and real world. But I think it's equally important to have both.

except the VOR dial doesn't seem to work proper, unless I'm doing something wrong.

To each their own.

I think it’s great that we have the possibility to flight both.
But this new sim tends to bit a bit more “glassy”, so more steam gauges please.
