  • Where did everybody go?

    I remember seeing people around for the first few weeks of MSFS2020 but now there is almost no one hanging around, as well as no group flights posted. I highly encourage people to host group flights if they are able to commit the selected time they chose. Currently there is no weekly reserved times for group flights. The ones that are currently posted leave a lot of room and other days for people to host a flight. I was hoping to see more people host after my group flight series of 5 flights including a break week ended.

    Well, I appreciate everyone's company, and maybe we will see some more people around soon or more participation once it gets cold and snowy in the north. I hope everyone that has not been around as much are doing well and are healthy.

    We were also having scheduled group flights. I am pondering something for Sunday or Monday myself. But I think that is the key. Schedule, schedule, schedule.

      US update & needin' some payware and event consistency
      I'll be hosting a 50-state, 50-week United States tour when the US assets are updated.

        WarHawK I don't disagree in that to some extent. We are working with unfinished pushed forward product. But it is still the best price to value available with at least 5 years of work(supposedly guaranteed). One way or another, I look forward to this, and I feel like the sudden excitement and fallout here has some consideration to this reasoning. Maybe most people are busy, and I personally know some who are, but if anyone is scared to host, reach out to me or any others. We will get you set up. Much of the new FS2020 world is workable to use.

          Still waiting on that next STOL competition you promised


          For me, the crash bugs that came with 1.9.3 really took the wind out of my sails. I had a few airports I was working on in the SDK, as well as testing and developing fixes for Rob Richardson's Banshee and converting other legacy aircraft and the crashes made that difficult, especially in the first few days after the patch because no one seemed to know what the hell the patch notes even meant or what was going on with the smart cam.

          Another thing is the selection of aircraft. Scenery developers are pumping out over-priced airports left and right, porting their legacy stuff into the new sim without much issue. That is not the case with the aircraft developers, especially those developing complex aircraft like A2A or PMDG that rely on external flight models and functions. Nearly everything has changed in regards to aircraft. Model files have to be in a different format, audio uses a completely new engine and requires an entirely new workflow and learning the new Wwise software and how it interacts with the sim. It no longer reads .air files, everything instead is done through a variety of .cfg files. This is why even experienced developers like Carenado and Dino Cattaneo are facing difficulties and limitations with even relatively simple aircraft.

          Dino submitted his Long-EZ to Asobo in the 3rd week of September. They came back and said, "don't release it yet. in the next update, we will update the SDK to support canards properly". 1.9.3 came, no canard support. 1.9.5 came, still no canard support. As it stands, if a feature is not already implemented in the sim it's not possible to do with the SDK. So until Asobo implement contrails and wing tip vortices and smoke, you won't be seeing them on third party aircraft. None of the default aircraft have afterburners, so no afterburners. Same goes for helicopters, gliders, basically anything that is not already a feature of a default aircraft.

          Anyways, sorry, went off on a tangent there, but it basically boils down to not having aircraft that I really love flying. There are aircraft I enjoy flying but nothing that I am passionate about in the same way I am about a P-51 or a Harvard or a Mirage or a Beaver. I'm also just not huge on being flight lead, I like being at the back of the pack and forming up on random people or veering off to check out a bit of scenery. I'd be more than happy to do all the planning if someone else wants to lead.
