[Before people start accusing me of trying to push my own wishes higher up the list and circumventing the ‘democratic’ voting system: no, not all of these wishes are my wishes. But I see the general benefit in them for other players. On the other hand, I also have a bunch of bigger wishes that didn’t make this list. If you think there is one in the list that doesn’t belong, let me know and I’ll delete it if justified. Or I’ll add missing topics if you have any.]
The voting system is great. It allows us to show what we want most. But it has the side-effect that it will mostly cater to big massive requests like helicopters, VR, DX12, Scenery gateway, trains, … These requests are great, but they take a long time to implement.
At the same time small but general improvements are ignored. Features that take 1 - 2 devs, 1 - 3 days to implement. Sometimes it may even be achievable in one hour (rare cases, I agree). Can you please take a look at these requests and give them a slightly higher priority?
Now I’m not asking for you to fix the entire list below by Sim Update 3 or even 4. But it would be good if you just completed a couple every month. The majority of the team would still be working on the SDK, bugfixes and other top voted feature requests, but at least some general improvement should be made on the UX too.
The following is a list of topics (ordered by votes, high to low) I gathered by scrolling through the wishlist. Please, take a closer look at them after the Q&A. (or whenever you have the time)
Highly popular: (50 - 338 votes)
Medium popularity, but still easy to imlement and a benefit for us all: (15 - 50 votes):
Less popular, but good small requests. I wonder why general improvements don’t get more votes, which proves voting doesn’t always work: (< 15 votes)
Thise are some of the threads suggested by other members, but I’m not sure if it’s actually small? Wanted to add them though.
So could you please take a look at these and make the sim shine in its UX?
