Ok, by now it should be clear that this game was indeed rushed (by MS) and so many things have been poorly designed and optimised due to the lack of time.
Last night I went for a night VFR flight around my area and I could see on the world map that were a few people around. So I decided to join in. Once airborne, I noticed that these nameplates were way too big and totally distracting, even though the traffic was still a bunch of miles away. Why is there no option to change colour and size of these? How much in a hurry do you have to be to just skip designing and implementing such basic options???
Also it shows only the user’s name, aircraft type and its altitude. But no distance? Seriously??? I can’t even…
I’m really curious to find out what this update that’s due today is actually going to fix.
