Current list of what is 'wrong' or missing in FS2020?

FSX? I miss the need to spend two weeks of simming time trying to tune my system to produce 25 frames per second with an acceptable level of detail. I miss the er…imaginative weather🤪.  I miss spending hours going down the rabbit hole of Process Lasso and all the other voodoo fixes that never quite work in the way they’re claimed to and I really miss spending all that extra cash on a big stack of CD’s to try and give the sim scenery I might vaguely recognise.

I miss taxiing at an airport and suddenly the aircraft falls in a "hole" in the runway, and the sim crashes. I miss buying Orbx Regions, and then not being able to fly there because the FPS would go into the dumpster. I miss landing at small airports, where all there was , was a runway surrounded by a patch of dirt, and nothing else.

my three big asks are:

All 4 Seasons

AI at least as good as FSX/P3d (talking about behavior, not models)

3rd party weather (active sky) that gives better accuracy to current conditions with varying cloud structures as well as historical weather.

One thing I DO miss about FSX is the heart pounding excitement that comes from spending two hours programming a long haul flight, completing that flight, only to be met with the ding ding ding OOM warning - seconds before touchdown you're staring at your desktop. 😁

There will always be stuff "missing". Even when MSFS 3050 is released. 

I don't think I'll be around then.  And at that point simming will be going between star systems...

Yes, thank you, looking for list of items per my main questions.

What is the purpose of your question?  To guide you in a buying decision?

If so, I would agree with the above posts that MSFS is so much better than FSX that there is no need to get out the microscope or the spreadsheet.. Get yourself a 500 GB SSD, or bigger, and download a copy.

1. Weather Radar

2. Better camera system needed (yes I know it works and how to do it but I think it can be better and easier)

For the 25th time: there IS a very capable replay system in MSFS. It was not present at launch, but it was added almost two years ago. This replay system -- that has long-since been accessible in MSFS -- is the same built-in software that Asobo uses to generate their always-impressive trailers. You just need to enable the replay system and move it to the default dropdown menu.

Sorry David and I like your post 99% of the time but go look at XPlane and DCS and see their Replay and Flyby views and see how MSFS replay and camera systems are seriously lacking. They should seriously open up the Camera api to let //42 and Chaseplane to do their magic. MS/Asobo should  swallow their pride and while add it open up the weather api to let the "Pros" have a go at it.

- historic weather;

- being able to represent aircraft with specific designs like biplanes or triplanes, aircraft with more than one vertical stabilizer / rudder group, etc...

- having acceptable blend between aloft (forecast) and surface (observation) weather, at least as good as Active Sky does it in P3D;

- ground physics at least as good as they are on well designed P3D aircraft;

- being able to associate controller setups with specific aircraft and/or classes of aircraft, like in P3D an XP...

- having popup instruments that don't make the sim lose it's focus and aircraft become uncontrollable due to it...

It all starts with HighMemFix = 1.

How well did that work with 16 gigs or ram but running a 32bit piece of software and VAS limitation. FSX was an nightmare to manage without the eventually CTD of OOM.

I completely agree about the lack of Flyby views and the difficulty of using the MSFS replay system. The multi-track replay system currently in MSFS reminds me more of recording-studio software for musicians than a handy tool for flight simmers. It's too complicated. I had to watch about ten YouTube tutorials before I finally got it working.

Recalling that world scenery is streamed live from MS/Asobo servers (rather than stored locally), I'm wondering whether this data stream radically alters how a replay system can be manipulated by third-party developers. This sounds like a difficult undertaking. The point of my post was simply that, despite its shortcomings, there is indeed a replay system, though, granted, they do make it difficult to find and use.

Ground handling, especially on landing. Still far too sensitive and sliding about on ice feeling at times.

I’d like runways that are clear at altitude...where you can look down and see the numbers of the runway and crisp definition of the pavement and markings.

And either nicely colored or AI fixed orthos...so the south of Chicago wouldn’t be green (I think they have sone new tech coming to make colors more uniform?)

And the water not to run uphill at Blakely Island airport in Washington.

Other than that, my current MSFS 2020 is running very smoothly!

I do miss those OOM chimes!? 😂🤦🏻‍♂️
