Let’s be honest, It’s been a rough year for the PC User. Personally, I was involved in the Alpha testing process and was filled with much hope at that time for a sim that could do it all. Amazing graphics, decent flight models out of the box, and the incredible weather system. Sure it was never perfect from the start, ATC was a disaster, the airliners were unflyable and there were definitely a number of game breaking bugs. But there was hope back for the future, for updates that would continually improve on the user and sim experience.
What we have recieved is sadly the opposite. Updates that are now feared among the flight sim community because we don’t know what new bugs will be introduced. A massive downgrading of LOD and graphics upon each sim update. It’s clear the focus for the past year has been predominantly on the release for xbox.
Now it’s been released, I think it’s time the PC community who have been (mostly) patient to date get some love. Asobo, show us what the sim is capable of with modern hardware. Allow us to experience how the sim can run without all these constraints. Give us some hope that the future of the sim can and will cater for both xbox and PC
