I think until end of year we should have a rough idea of how the further development of MSFS is going. If they keep their promises.

It's great to hear how enthusiastic they are. I think we're lucky to have Asobo on this.

This was great interview. Very transparent and open comments from them. Nice.

Great interview. I particularly like what they said about the world updates (from 1:04:14).

We [MSFS and the Bing Maps team] are currently in touch with almost every government, because the governments oftentimes have great data for their countries. We’re trying to get better DEM, obviously we’ll get better aerials because we have contracts with satellite providers and aerial providers. We send each other pictures like “here’s the current sim we just shipped, and here’s what we can update whenever we’re ready to do that particular world update and holy s***, in some cases it’s a generation ahead. It really is that amazing. Oftentimes our hight field is 5m or 10 m resolution. There’s some data coming in right now it’s 25 centimetres. It is crazy, it looks crazy. The nice thing is we’re gonna be able to give this away for free, the world updates are free.

Great to hear that they’re reaching out to governments as many provide excellent mesh and imagery for free.

Their genuine enthusiasm is fantastic. And can't wait until they build AI caribou migration into the sim...😆

I wish someone would ask them whether they are going to fix the RNAV approach logic in the G1000.

Specifically, the RNAV glidepath right now does not extend vertically beyond the designated intercept point... which is incorrect and makes it impossible to intercept the glidepath "from below" as all pilots are taught..

They said it is not their goal to make airplanes 100% accurate, so as to leave some room for the 3rd parties, however, the Garmin simulation has some real bugs in it... and it sure would be nice to hear someone say:  "Yes, that is part of the core sim, and it will be fixed!"  🙂

Or.. we need to report these bugs to the third parties that are using the Asobo G1000, like Carenado and ask them to fix them.

I thought the patch had Garmin bugs listed prominently no?

This was one of the best interviews I have heard so far, especially around the 50 minute mark discussing third party tools and how the old way of developing aircraft or scenery was not the best or most efficient way but necessitated because of how the older sims were written and functioned.  Exciting times ahead!

The downside to this is that there are quite a few governments out there who will stonewall them. Russia and China for sure. Which will leave large parts of Asia in a lamentable state.
