Nah, this is fine. It needs a separate thread.

Ok so we now have a basic faq. Not to put more oil in the fire but this leaves room for interpretation for direct purchases outside the marketplace:

Add-ons that were purchased from the in-simulator Marketplace will not need to be re-purchased in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024.

I suppose... But I guess, that they cannot speak for developers who could make their own decisions. They can only control, what's inside the Marketplace, as they set the rules for those addons? I have a feeling, though, that addon-developers would comply with similar guidelines, if/when migrating to the new sim.

Correct. Thought the same. Makes sense. Devs will be almost forced to follow this approach as otherwise they will feel the power of the community and burn themselves. Yet I am still willing to pay marginal upgrade fees like for EGLC if something major changes

Exactly... from what ive seen, looks like the same engine material... clouds...with a few bells and whistles... when i saw the announcement i thought at least something like Unreal Engine 5 standards... maybe there's more under the hood than we know?

In other news, sales of 4tb SSDs prices rocket as FS enthusiasts hold onto 2 versions whilst the new one irons all the problems out. 😄

Probably support as in we are not turning off the servers. You'll continue to get some updates but don't expect the current pace we are seeing now. But I'm quite sure the focus will be on msfs 2024 after release. The add-ons not transferring would have been the deal breaker for me. As long as the add-on transfers, I'm happy to upgrade to 2024. And they just confirmed that.

There are still a lot of open questions though.

The biggest for me is: Will all of the standard/premium/deluxe edition content from 2020 carry over into 2024? 2020 is a huge package by now, with countless planes, handcrafted airports, bush trips, etc. etc...

A lot of the premium airplanes only became good to fly in the past few months. There's a huge amount of content in 2020 that I haven't even really tried out yet. I hope they make the right decision and carry this stuff over.

"We will continue to support Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020) post the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024 launch."

That's all I wanted to hear.   Would have liked to hear for how long they intend to support it post FS20204, but as long as I can keep using for the next few years that's good news.

 90% of my add-ons I've purchased outside of the MSFS market place either direct from the developer or the usual platforms. What will happen with those? Will MSFS 2024 allow the easy transfer/installation into the community folder?

They said addons that you bought in the store will work. They sell the deluxe and premium as upgrades in the store.
