The Skypark for MSFS 2020 looks awesome!

No, I can't...? First of all there are hardly any posts about The Skypark yet on Discord and I am not allowed to post anything. Secondly, it seems you have to post requests etc. in the //42 channel, not the Skypark one (which makes you wonder why they have that channel). However, I also can't post anything in the //42 channel. Almost seems they don't want customers.

You have to set your roles before the channels will open up where you can chat with others and the developers.

Click on the #welcome channel, and then there are 2 icons located at the bottom, make sure to click on them both.

Looks nice but er... it has no sounds (like loading cargo or boarding passengers), the lady you hear during the beginning (in the video's I've seen) can only be heard during the introduction, there are no penalties for flying bad or landing hard or destroying the cargo, you own all planes right from the start, there is no career, no promotion... NeoFly has all that. For free. And it has more jobs too, so I've gathered.

So what else apart from the shiny interface does The Skypark offer? Again, it looks nice but seems to offer very little extra.

The developer video stated that they will be adding an economic expense element. My guess is that there will also eventually be a way to use the cash you earn to build a career or lifestyle in game (economic progression) and surely a way to use the XP.

As it is, even in early access, I love it for giving me a purpose to fly to new areas. It is somewhat unique in letting one fly any plane anywhere with tours and bush trips (once the devs open that up)--more like a virtual airline in that respect.

@MarkSC quick question, if I may, I’m considering buying it, but was wondering if adding third party aircraft is implemented and if it works.

In the first walk through video they said it was still being worked on, but that was pre-release.

I’m especially concerned with being able to use the Carenado 182!

Any update would be appreciated?

You can use any plane that you own. So yes it will work with payware planes.

To be honest, whilst I appreciate that it is early access so things will develop over time and I will certainly give it that time, there is so much in here that I don't understand. I just don't get the point of it.  After years in development I was expecting it to be much much more than it is. These are some things that are a mystery to me. 

1. The number if jobs offered is minimal at best. There should be 100 times more than there is. 

2.  Money or XP don't appear to give you anything so what's the point in that?  If something is developed over time for this then regular users will likely have a massed loads of money and XP in the interim to qualify for whatever it might be so it still wouldn't make a difference. 

3.  What a the point of the Coyote jobs and karma? 

4.  Why is reliability a secret unless you go to a specific airport some where in the States (I cant remember which one it is now) where you can see it?  What's the point of that? 

 

It's so unrealistic that you can fly jobs anywhere in the world in any aircraft at any time.  So one minute you can be flying the C172 in the UK and hałf an hour later you can miraculously appear anywhere else in the world flying whatever you like. 

 

So at the moment I just don't get the point of it.  Hopefully developments will happen quickly with this as I'd expected so much more. 

 

For now it'll just sit on my desktop gathering virtual dust until it develops further or we at least get an idea of what's planned and when.

After thinking about it a while and reading this thread I’ve decided to wait to see how it matures. 

I may miss out on the lower price (which really seems too high already, sub $20US I’d buy), but at this point other than the lovely GUI it doesn’t offer more than what I get with NeoFly for free.

Yes, I also get the idea they are trying to grab some quick money with this MSFS version. I'll pass for now. Looks nice but offers almost nothing (useful). Back to NeoFly it is for me.

Got this addon yesterday. Have tried a couple of flights. For me it's the best out there. You can fly from anywhere, with any plane you own. It's great if you just want to fly without a lot of management.

You can also do that without this add on... so what's the point? To add to what I posted earlier: afaik Skypark doesn't check your load so you have to fly jeans from A to B but does it care about what's actually loaded in the sim? Where is the challenge? The incentive? There's nothing you can do with your money. XP has no use at all either. There are only 2 companies, a proper one and a shady one... what's the point? The way you fly or land isn't being monitored at all. Well, I am repeating myself. I'd like to know exactly what's coming in the near future to make this add on worthwhile. 

Take note that this add on had been announced in 2019 already...! A release date (in 2019) had already been mentioned! Now over a year has passed and what do they deliver? An iPad interface that suggests destinations when you are at an airport. That's it, really. Look at what the dev of NeoFly has given us for free in a few months...

Excuse me, but it appears you have no interest in purchasing this addon and yet you seem to be giving everyone a REVIEW of what the product does or does not do and complain how long it took to release this MSFS ONLY product to a sim that is 4 months old. So my question is, what contribution are you making to all the readers of this thread ??  Why not just lighten up and go enjoy your free NeoFly ?  Thank you.

He’s adding food for thought!

I was interested and about to buy but changed my mind and saved some dough... so it is value added.

These forums are for this reason exactly. 

Telling everyone to keep their opinions to themselves makes no sense!

My conclusion exactly! Might as well buy another plane which I can get more use out of...

Happily sticking with NeoFly...

Paying for it now hoping it’ll get better, no thanks.

Show me what you have to offer and I’ll speak with my money what I think it’s worth. 

As it stands it offers nothing more than what’s on offer for free.

So there you have it! 

I’m not a venture capitalist give me a full product for the price or put it to market when it’s done!
