I was in on this from Day One, with the Premium Deluxe Edition. All in. And for the first few weeks, I was, like so many others, wowed by this sim. It just looked so ■■■■ pretty! And it seemed to work! Sorta. Kinda. Almost.
Since then, and despite several hefty updates and patches, my experience with MSFS 2020 has steadily degraded, my visits to this software becoming fewer and shorter as a result until we get to this moment where I find that even as I’m waiting for a modest flight to load I’m informed by the app that I’ve been placed offline due to some issue or other. Despite my settings clearly showing that:
a) I am online
b) real-time data from Bing Maps is set to ‘on’
c) rolling cache is set-up to go
d) graphics settings are all set-up correctly
e) my BB connection is absolutely fine (and wired, and hi-speed)
All verified multiple times, nothing improves. The world below looks terrible. It’s all a waste of time and effort.
This is the sim that just gets worse and worse as each new iteration is patched and updated. Those first few weeks of joyous flight are now a distant memory. Now I can’t even bring myself to fire this thing up (it’s such a rigmarole every time, after all) as I’m fairly certain my only reward for my time and patience will be, inevitably, disappointment. Again.
What’s going wrong, Asobo?
