Yeah, some actually expected the sim to come with study level aircraft. Like, we have multiple companies making them right now, that spend many years doing it and charge huge sums of money (development is expensive) and they expected all the aircraft in the base sim to match that. My mind boggles.
The thing is that even delaying it would make little difference because a lot of bugs are only found when it is released in the wild with all those different machine combinations, and usage loads. Not to mention people that do common “tweaks” that cause many issues sim pilots often complain about. I wish publishers would not publish such ■■■■.
A lot of arm-chair devs like to think they know better “i know about development, I played games and did some betas for years!”. As a programmer, I say “lol”. Like a lot of arm-chair pilots trying to tell real pilots they are wrong. It is kind of weird and I’ll never get used to it. It reminds me of a taxi driver I had once that was telling me he was a professional driver at the same time as he had trouble staying in his lane. Time alone does not equate to knowledge or skills. It takes proper study and effort too.
I’m a glass half-full kind of guy. There are clearly “if the glass isn’t full it is empty” kind of people around though I do need to remind myself sometimes that they are a small minority. Most unhappiness people express about issues here is understandable, it is only a small number of posts that are hyperbolic.
