Well, yeah… but I’m under the impression that is only the case for contents that are contained within the Mandatory content (like autogen airports, etc). Asobo’s LOWI and all the other handcrafted airports like YSSY are treated as a separate contents. So if I have both Asobo YSSY and FlyTampa YSSY. While you may be right that the game treats it as an order of priority for third-parties. It still poses a risk where if the third party doesn’t have a specific file that the Asobo one has, then it would load the Asobo in, merging the sceneries together.
I had a few instances like this before with my payware VHHH and Hong Kong scenery. Where the VHHH pack has the road bridge included, but the Hong Kong scenery has the same bridge included as well. In my sim, I’m seeing double bridges coming from both addons rendered simultaneously.
I just think that this much safer to just remove the content for the ones you don’t want to use.
Well yes, but actually no… FBW A320 isn’t sanctioned by Microsoft/Asobo. They’re just posted the content in the marketplace for people to use if they want to. Just like every other content being posted there.
Working fantastically is subjective. MSFS is going to be a long term app, it’s not going to stay exactly the same going 10 years forward. That’s just the nature of Software as a Service in this era. Nothing stays the same anymore. There’s always new things coming, new content, new changes. And yes, some of them may change the way we used to do things. But it’s the nature of technology these days.
The best thing we can do is to keep on top of them. I’m like you too, SU5 changes a lot of things, like the Cockpit Interaction, the way the sim renders objects now. And I do experience the change the first day I have SU5 installed. But for me, I already expected this. So I’m ready for them. I read the patch release notes, do some flight testing, see what’s different now, and make it work for me Go back to the options, make some adjustments, and also make adjustments on my own flying style. Now, I’m enjoying my flying 2 hours a day, livestreaming to my YouTube channel.
This saying doesn’t apply in the 21st century anymore. Change is something that is certain, along with death and taxes. If you’re not constantly changing, either leading the change or adapting to the changes you’ll be left behind.
