And has been reported on since last year at release, rumored to be reported during beta, still problem exists today. I have theory:
Asobo has budget, they exceeded budget because this project is wayyyy out of their league, heck MS did not want to do it in house, so farmed it out. They had to release to get enough money to cover expenses, and lots and lots of things did not get fixed. To keep money train moving, keep updating world stuff to hook more players in, X-Box, et-al. Another Update later this month, but none or at lease few of the long term bugs since before beta are fixed. AP, ATC (alghough puncuation has been corrected) and flight characteristics of most of the planes is all wrong. My suggestions have been ignored, fix base stuff, then when update, you will know what is breaking systems, nope, keep releasing fluff, and nothing much else gets fixed. I fly C-17 in FSX, steers fine up to 40KIAS or even faster, nose wheel looks funny when turned, but plane response as it should, wings dip if speed too high. They may be waiting for others to release study level aircraft, which would be nice, but, sim keeps changing and breaking so much, no vendor wants to step up, because it costs money to update a plane, of unknown economic viability, until firm orders have completed. All AP creators, should take pole before starting development, how many folks are going to purchase, and then would know if it’s a viable project. QW rumored to release 787 hoping for 737 and 747, DC Designes releasing F-14 on 19th, supposed to be close to study level, unlike DCS’s f-14 which is study level. Blah, blah, blah. Dont bash me, I get the economic side much better than most. But feel if planes & Systems fixed, more people would join up in line to buy. And credit where due, billions of lines of code, one team working on this, another team working on that, very hard to collaborate with massive code shooting off in 10,000 directions. That it works as well as it does is a credit to Asobo. I have proposed solutions, and no one takes them to heart. Feel major impedement is the distribution model, again, get flack on changing it, lots of people around world have slow internet, it takes me 20+ hours to download game. Several hours to DL patches, send me to a dedicated download site, or make DVD’s available. I will pay for the DVD’s just having a hard copy makes me feel better.
