I thought it would be nice to create a topic to discuss updates, rumors and thoughts about the new Microsoft Flightsimulator that supposedly will be released 2020.

I will start with a couple of links to YouTube Videos that I find great:
Official Trailer: https://youtu.be/ReDDgFfWlS4

Interesting Insights from Pre-Alpha Press Meeting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fj8h6yibHHc

I am personally super excited.

What I love:
  • The weather looks fantastic - the developers say that they are simulating a lot of variables that make up weather and the graphics are simply stunning
  • The scenery looks amazing - Just WOW! - all these individually shaped buildings, all these textures, all this procedural autogen - eye candy at its best.
  • The community interaction from MS marketing - they show that they care about what the community has to say.


Some open questions that I still have:
  • What is the price gonna be?
  • What's the planned release date, 2020 has 365 days.
  • What are the opportunities for 3rd parties to become part - Aircraft and airport addons still make sense - Addons such as general scenery and weather addons might not be required anymore with this level of detail
  • Currently they don't have VR on the roadmap which I find a pity because the level of immersion would be amazing. I wonder why that is.
  • What's the sim interface going to look like? I am ready to implement it for MobiFlight... :D


What do you guys think: What do you like best about the new sim so far and what are your open questions or concerns?
