MSFS finally out of beta (for me)

Recommended Posts

I have been flight simming since the dawn of flight sims. I skipped  over FSX from FS2004 and went to X-Plane.

After half a year almost to the day, I feel MSFS is finally out of beta. I know not everything is 100% (some default aircraft still have major issues), but for the flying I do (FBW 320NX) it is very enjoyable.

The last update did it for me:

- clouds and atmospheric lightning

- weather is getting closer to real life

- performance on a mid-highish system is really enjoyable

I hate the fact that it has become an industry practice to release software titles premature and let paying customers do 'final' testing. But it is a fact and we can live with it or not support it. 

Developing cost are huge for titles like this and part of me can not blame them, but I still don't like it. 

I must say MS/Asobo have shown that they are serious and are listening.

I feel MSFS is a very good base for the future, I for one enjoy it tremendously.

I have been watching the community from various forum vantage points, and wondering idly when the apparently obligatory acceptance reluctance, would gradually segue into They-will-have-to-pry-it-from-my-cold-dead-hands. 😘


We are all connected..... To each other, biologically...... To the Earth, chemically...... To the rest of the Universe atomically.

Not me. I have gotten SO much pleasure from MSFS since I bought it on day one. I’d hate to think that day was today.
