Well, I may be over-reacting here, but MSFS 2020 will do nothing for me until they get their SIM to be “ready” at a minimum level, like cameras, erratic movement of small single-prop planes, largely non-functional cockpits for the airliners. The scenery alone is not why I love simming, and I realized this even more now. I need to feel I’ve learned and accomplished something, like a new skill, a great controlled landing, navigation in low visibility etc… to feel good about a flight. It’s not enough to just see pretty scenery, which, by the way, is not that pretty after all. The resolution of Google maps, when compared to Bing maps is incomparably better. I checked out my neighbourhood yesterday and the houses where mine is, which is a series of reddish-brown townhouses, don’t even have the right colours, never mind the actual house architecture style. Not that it matters that much, but I don’t want this right now. I must have gotten very intolerant about some things with age (though very tolerant of other nice things too).
It’s highly unlikely that it will have the detailed, functionally “thorough” (not necessarily complete, but detailed) satisfying planes that X-Plane has through the multitude of payware add-ons, until 3rd party add-ons also come out for FS2020 also. Some of these “hand-crafted” excuse for airports are also, basically neglected like in not having any gate numberings neither on the pavement nor on the jetways/buildings. WHICH means more add-ons are needed. No thanks Microsoft! I’ve requested a full refund for MSFS 2020. I’ll wait, and see what happens, in 6 months time and I’ll decide then.
