Everything else you said, I can agree with, but this:
I Would not know about the full truth in the matter of exactly why MSFS was released with such blatant omissions, bugs, and issues.
But for the record and to urge us all to keep asking for the reason why we have so many bugs, omissions, and issues:
We could most certainly blame them IF this (‘taking advantage’) is the case. Or do we say, ‘we cant blame one who steals (takes advantage of) from an elderly person they are supposed to be caring for’?
Taking advantage is taking advantage and it is never nice or good. Always with selfish and evil intent. It only does harm, but in the end it does more harm to the offender, this is absolutely certain.
In the same way, the phrase “its nothing personal” is a plain lie in every case, because business in made up of people and people are personal.
For the others who hate the fact that somebody has an opposing view that really matters:
Either way one tries to explain it away, a bad business decision will always have bad consequences. For live weather to not function in a flight sim, is top 3 worst things that could happen. We are at week 3 and not even a glimmer of hope in sight for correcting this gigantic flaw. Airplane and airport issues round out the top 3. If we went to top 50…well this forum is very full of all the issues, bugs, and omissions already…I wonder why?..oh yea they are “whining cry babies”…yea that’s it.
The reality is, “potential”, NOT the actual product or substance, is being defended by many. I don’t see the sense at all, because NONE of them know anything about the details of what will happen in the next hour or minute, yet they boast about potential in 2 months or 10 years. The blind leading the blind, in my view — pun not intended, and was going to be removed but, at the same time it was intended and kept because the mood needed to be lightened a small degree. I truly do care about everybody here, and I do care about the success of MSFS.
