Firstly I would like to repeat again that we simmers are comparing a billion dollar company with a probably not even a 100 million dollar company. makes no sense.
MS has tremendous resources , they can pour in a lot of money and pullout when they see no profits.
Had tried MSFS for a month with the game pass , personally it didn't fit well with me.
Also one of the reasons at least me not wanting MSFS would be no great helis. on the psychological level it felt like a kidZ game , XP is also a game but it didn't register as a game psychologically , probably to do with the helicopters , again this is a personal opinion.
XP12 is a big improvement from XP11 , but some can't digest that. They will find something to talk about , is XP perfect NOPE so is MSFS.
I do want the scenery of MSFS but that is not possible in XP, maybe in the future. There are certain aspects that can be done I am sure.
I don't want XP to look like MFS. I find XP to be much better in looks, again this is a personal opinion.
The lighting has improved so has the water and the weather and I like those clouds , ofc it needs more refinement.
