MSFS is introducing tons of new people to flight simming.
There is a huge glaring hole in what is being provided - no manual, or any official documentation.
FSX had an excellent HTML-based Learning Center with 100s of pages of useful information on the simulator in general, aircraft, and avionics.
We have been provided with NOTHING for MSFS.
We are left to scrub multiple forums and get to watch youtube videos (which may contain wrong information) to try to figure out how things work.
I hopped in the CJ4 last night to try a jet for the first time. The airliner-style PFD and FMS were a mystery to me after only flying steam gauge and Garmin equipped aircraft. There is nothing anywhere to tell me how to fly this aircraft. So I closed it and gave up. I have a limited amount of free time in the evenings and don’t have time to watch a bunch of Youtubers try to muddle through figuring this out, finally watching 5 videos to get all of the information. I just need a clearly written summary I can read through and get going.
Also, without a manual there is no way for users to tell what is implemented, what is not implemented, and what might be broken and require a bug report. This is painfully obvious in repeat questions about things like Active Pause or how to find ILS frequencies in this and other forums.
