I understand the CRJ is still being tested, so I’ll leave it out - when they release the Corsair and just flight arrows (confirmed PC marketplace or submitted for release), then we can talk about the marketplace being in a good spot…
That and removal of PC reviews and ending this string of non-functioning add-ons. A couple weeks for an update is understandable, but the broken add-ons need to stop.
And also a lot of people are also not really aware of the amount of us people on the Xbox who are committed sim pilots who just for whatever reasons in life can’t afford top notch PC hardware - and we don’t Gawk at the prices we wish we had the better items to pay for that’s all - the amount of low rate add ons especially aircraft on the Xbox MP right now compared to the top range stuff is ridiculous
For an Xbox user, I’m afraid to say the answer is probably no, since you guys can’t access flightsim.to addons and mods where there are dozens (hundreds?) of such liveries.
But from a store perspective, there’s an issue with licensing from the carriers, and I while know Jorg’s been working on it, it seems he hasn’t made much progress. If/when he does then you’ll be golden, but the keyword there is “if”.
Console manufacturers have one over-arching concern, maintaining the security of their platform. In their eyes, any line of code might potentially introduce a new entry point for a hacker to back door and jail break their operating system. Which means console manufacturers heavily curate any content that comes anywhere near their hardware. The console mod scene will never have freedom equivalent to the PC environment, at least not anytime in the near future.
Ok thanks guys. Just to give a bit of background I’ve previously been a PC simmer. I decided to plunge for Xbox because I am a console gamer and I have game pass and it seemed like a good deal.
I have a setup of a 65 inch LG C1 with my Xbox series x and it looks pretty phenomenal. The last PC I had I achieved about 15 FPS with FSX!
I guess at the best hope I am in for a bit of a waiting game for liveries. For some aircraft models though they include real world liveries, just a shame the CS 777 and the 737Max aren’t up to scratch and very over priced.
Having said that - the market place has a decent few very nice airport sceneries. You just have to be wise and review on youtube before you buy and you can’t go far wrong. Yeah sure you won’t get an endless list of options but it is what it is.
Unfortunately there isn’t a single source of information for upcoming products. You have to rely on third-party developers stating that they have submitted their product to the marketplace for ingestion.
