I don’t see what any of this has to do with Garmin Trainers. Asobo said they don’t want them on the marketplace. Fine. So why are they still blocking RXP? Maybe he has plans for other products, built in JS/HTML or WASM.
Before the DC-6 for FS2020, PMDG have never, ever sold a product for FS2020, and all their products were for P3D and X-Plane. I don’t see Asobo blocking their marketplace application because they don’t allow P3D or X-Plane content on their marketplace. And considering all of their previous addons relied on DLLs, I find it very interesting I never saw anyone from Asobo telling them flat out: “No, we cannot work with you or even reply to your emails cause we do not want to run DLLs in FS2020.” I know reading that you find it very silly. Why would they block PMDG based on their past addons? Of course they can convert those to FS2020. Well, why not say the same thing about RXP? There are other RXP products besides the GPS units. And there may be new products in the pipeline. Asobo made a lot of effort in order to help PMDG bring their P3D addons to FS2020. @CptLucky8 is offering all the necessary information for free, and no one from Microsobo is willing to even give him the time of day. Why is that, I wonder?
Bringing up the Garmin trainers makes absolutely no sense. Asobo have made their terms clear, and they can reject addon submissions if they want. Is there any other vendor being held to this standard? Is there any other vendor being asked if they hold contractual agreements with various manufacturers for addons they may or may not develop in the future? Has anyone had to prove they have a licence from Cessna, Piper, Boeing, Airbus, Garmin, or any other manufacturer in order to be approved for the marketplace?
There is absolutely no reason to block such a well established developer, acting like there is only one thing they will ever develop, and nothing else. Frankly, this unreasonable fixation on the Garmin trainer is bringing up a lot of red flags for me. So if people could maybe treat RXP like any other developer that wants to sell FS2020 products, that would be nice.
Besides, this topic is mostly about the wealth of knowledge @CptLucky8 has to offer. Based solely on that, Microsobo should be bringing him on board, not just hearing him out.
