Which Third Party Aircraft will be in the XBOX Version?

A 3D model does not consist of pixels, but of geometry (vertices, edges and surfaces), and then textures and/or shaders applied to that. Those are then rendered into pixels. The Xbox series X supports 4K, 3840 x 2160, over 8 million pixels. At various frame rates. “millions of pixels at 30 fps” is no problem at alll. It is not the number of pixels that is a problem, but how complicated the geometry, textures, and shaders are from which the pixels are calculated.

No one should get their hopes up for cross platform dlc. I installed the windows version on msfs and none of my dlc appeared. Achievements, logbook data, and all in game store bought dlc is not connected between the version. At least on pc I can just move the dlc between folders. I was hoping to sit on my couch and play the game (with all of my dlc) on Xbox as an arcade style game as opposed to sim on my pic.

So many bad notions of this game people expecting this people expecting that - it is what it is it is a true achievement on a grand scale no matter what anyone labels it as -

And also to add - any 3rd party developer who chooses to port there simware over to the Xbox version will obviously need to be tested by asobo to make sure it is stable because that’s a number 1 priority as stated by Jorg or the other bloke can’t exactly remember which of the three on one of the latest dev streams - where he also said that the team at asobo is currently very hard at work testing all these 3rd party add-ons on the console version which is Sim update 5 if I believe - and that many great developers have already signed on with plenty of their products -

So dean I have an Xbox and NSF’s but no pc so how can I get your planes to work on Xbox and buy them :pray:

Are you sure about this?

The MSFS Update process - the digital equivalent of a Rube Goldberg Machine? - #24 by CptLucky8

That’s going to put a whole extra load on Asobo Resources. !!

Here is an Idea (obviously I am not a developer for X-Box, or I would not say this)

Since developers of X-Box addons are going to make Money on the Market, should they not be CHARGED by ASOBO/MS for the “testing and Certification” of their product for X-Box !! :sunglasses:

Those making FREE products might need to be dealt with differently – since neither they or MS are going to be making any profit from those products on the store.

Remember, at the end of the day, it really all boils down to $$$$ & Profits – lets not keep kidding ourselves that is anything else.

Let’s not kidding ourselves about paying Microsoft for reviewing the add-ons vendors are pushing to the market place: they are already taking a 30% cut off every sale which I believe is paying them already isn’t it? Paying them for this among other things:

PS: just to make my comment above clear: I don’t care at all about the Market Place review process and whether vendors are pushing to market defective products in general, to each is own. But I do care about the community crying out loud about such low level of quality in the market place products while they are refusing RXP to sell any product on the market place, stalling our application since Aug. 2020, for libelous reasons.

I thought you would jump on that one !!!

Yes, they are already taking 30% - but I am sure they would love to take more, if they could justify it.

My main point was, with all the work that Asobo has to do to fix and develop MSFS, adding “Ms_Store” testing is just one more resource hog.

But then, is it ASOBO that needs to test products for the MS-Store ?
NO !! It should be MS - It’s their store.

Funded from the MS store’s 30%, it should be quite possible to have a MS “test team” that test new, and updates of products for the MS store.

"Should be " ?? - like so many thing MSFS :+1:

Well here is an interesting debate:

  • In North America, customer support is nearly always 1 800 number (free to call).
  • In France, customer support is nearly always a pay-per-minute number.

In North America is is considered as a competitive advantage and they do their best to lower the waiting time, and inform you of the waiting time. In France they consider this a cost center, and it can take more often than not more than 10 minutes prior reaching someone… (the more you wait, the more you pay them)

Who’s is giving the best customer service between the two in general though…

Just have to wait for Microsoft to clear them onto the X-Box basically, it takes a while. Stearman is already there, F-15s should be soon, as will F-14 Tomcats
