  1. What's in it for Google? Just to license a small part of their orthos, for example to make a third party payware airport, costs a small fortune. To cover the world would be way beyond Laminar's means
  2. I think it's a mash up of footage that MS have already released. Slightly more original concept, than some of these MS repacked videos
  3. Woke up to the sacred email. Had to check it was not a phishing attempt
  4. Will be interesting to see how they price these additions. Obviously for most it will probably be full price but I wonder if they will try to justify MSFS as a professional flight sim and charge the P3D price as opposed to the FSX price. I am betting on the former.
  5. Me too. Shall be scanning my email box intently for the next 24 hours. Except for one hour where I shall go out to buy a bottle of wine to overcome the inevitable disappointment,
  6. Download it, register it don't use it until it's final. Assuming you have the previous version of course.
  7. Pretty sure the NDA would not allow him to do that. Everything we see is released by Microsoft and not directly from Alpha testers.
  8. Yep basically he made P3D v5 back into v4 but running on DX12. Genius
  9. Deja Flew. That feeling that you have read the same forum posts every time a major sim product is released
  10. Very easy to post this but unless you post the attribution, it's meaningless and misleading
  11. Sadly true. Yet in the world we currently live in, there are much more important things to worry about than an upcoming "game"
  12. Yes of course they are "Hype Syrup" that's what marketing is, cherry picked, best bits to get us all hyped up. Clearly it's working but as I said in the rest of my post, I will use MSFS for several months before deciding for myself whether the hype was worth it. Rude and insulting? To whom? The people at Asobo who are making these videos have a clear brief to show us only the best. We don't see any of the warts, yet we know from the very occasional leak that there are plenty. Who knows what will and won't be ironed out before release. I cannot fathom how my comments could be construed as rude and insulting to anyone outside of Asobo either, I was merely using flowery prose to describe what we are being given, not a personal attack on anyone. Seems a shame that if anyone dares to question Microsoft, they get shot down as rude. Personally I think I am being a realist not rude and I have used MSFS since the first years on an original IBM PC in 1985. If I have learned anything from Microsoft and flight sim in general, it is to manage my expectations.
  13. I wonder how long the MSFS honeymoon period will be. I suspect the nitpicking will start within a month and the full blown entitlement posts shortly after. Whilst I am excited for it, I won't be deleting my XP or P3D on release day. It's unlikely there will be any higher end, study sim aircraft available from day one and it may even be months if not years before we see them. At the moment, we are being spoon feed the Microsoft Hype Syrup. Anyone who remembers the FSX hype will realise how sweet that can be, they will also remember the bitter aftertaste of release. Yes, I will almost certainly buy it, maybe I will ditch P3D or XP but not until I have had it in my hands for several months in order to make my own, sound judgement on the sim.
  14. There are a lot of great, engaging videos on YouTube that inform and educate. However I 100% agree with the sentiments you express in this post. These FS2020 clickbait videos are lazy ways to generate money by repackaging other people's hard work
