Well I voted yay (positive, in agreement with the OP), but Microsoft, Asobo and everyone else need to keep in mind the economic side of things as well. If this modded A320 aircraft works and behaves even half as good as the Aerosoft non-study-level A320, many people won’t buy the Aerosoft one.
Why does it matter you ask?
Because Aerosoft is an official partner of Microsoft, and they even helped (and probably still are) Microsoft make parts of the current SDK.
If Aerosoft can’t sell their airbus (or loses money) because of this freeware mod, they will get “word I’m not allowed to say here”, and the end result might not be conducive to the current healthy flight sim third party ecosystem.
Keep in mind also that FSlabs said they have several NDAs in place, which means they are also developing something for MSFS but can’t say anything about it at the moment.
It’s definitely an interesting time, and a difficult game of balancing the scale for MS/Asobo.
No we shouldn’t. Also, I never said we shouldn’t.
