  1. Did they say anything about tomorrow’s World Update? I mean, what will be covered/updated in the Iberian region? How many PG cities?
  2. Now they have went too far... It's definitely a game. Am I right? Just kiding, that's actually awesome, it's a good entry point.
  3. PMDG, mostly because I want the 737 and I want it on the Marketplace. Maybe in the future I will get the Fenix A320.
  4. Jörg called it Iberia Update, but I think he didn’t mention anything about Portugal, did I miss it?
  5. Kaii is focusing on offline A.I., as far as I know (and I like the idea) Asobo/MS is focusing on Online Traffic.
  6. RELEASE NOTES If you are playing on PC, some packages in your community folder may not have been updated and, as a result, may have an unexpected impact on the title’s performance and behavior.

  7. I've seen people wanting to know if the current state is what Asobo thinks is ok, but to ease some concerns: Source: Live Weather Report - Community / News and Announcements - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums
  8. Their snow implementation is a good sign they will use shaders for that type of feature. Also they have mentioned they want to implement seasons the right way (they’ve even talked about animal migrations). Nothing against that developer (Bijan), but I wouldn’t consider his product a good implementation of seasons. It’s more like new tree types. Weather changes are way more comprehensive than that.
  9. I watched the VOD, the stream was already finished, so I watched it as a whole. But I think we have understood his statements quite differently. But my whole point is to say no one is really "guilty" of anything. PMDG and Asobo have their own agendas. And RSR himself knows that, he isn't "angry" with Asobo dev, and of course he shouldn't be. He has his own concerns about the MSFS development of course, and this is his role as a manager. Also, we, the community, shouldn't be charging Asobo as the only culprit on this "mess". I really doubt Asobo has anything to do with the decision process of choosing a date to release the 737. PMDG should have done that when they were sure about everything. If they set that date believing Asobo would deliver feature X, Y and Z on any given day, they were naive. They are on the right direction now, they will announce a date when they are sure about it. And it's not, by far, the first time PMDG cancelled/postponed any of their releases, accross all platforms and working with different groups of developers. I'm still waiting for the updated 777 and the Global Flight Operations. LOL
  10. Sometimes I fail to understand this community. This sim is a little more than a year old and PMDG already delivered 1 complex aircraft. And it means nothing to the people. But as soon as PMDG faces issues, people see those as an unsurmountable wall. And people point their guns exclusively to Asobo/MS. People forgot all the other PMDG products that are taking forever to get released? Where's the airplanes they once promissed to develop for X-Plane? All that to say I believe their fleet will be released one day and that's not anyone's fault it will take longer, things are what they are. Asobo has their own Agenda, as PMDG. Eventually both will converge and users will have amazing aircrafts on an amazing sim.
  11. I understood it a bit differently. Asobo doesn't estimated anything, Asobo is just supporting PMDG (when they have the time/resources to do so), like they are doing for the other 3rd party devs. PMDG needed a feature that's essential to the release of their fleet, but Asobo didn't have answered until now and they have decided to hold the announcement of any release dates. He didn't say Asobo is taking longer to implement it, they just haven't answered to the request yet. He also stated he knows Asobo isn't working exclusively with them, so they have their own schedules and roadmaps.
