  1. I do not know if Orbx would be up for this, but I think it would help immensely and potentially really really sell a product if you always planned to include the "comparison to stock scenery" slider image thing where you can drag the little bar and compare right there what you'd be getting with the third party upgrade.
  2. I'd like to echo this request please - particularly if one is concerned about possibly using Xbox versions of MSFS at some point. It's frustrating to have to choose between MSFS official store and a discount on Orbx store.
  3. I'm hopeful Orbx (or someone) can do some "default" vs "Orbx" comparisons. I'm sort of excited for this, but not as blown away as I used to be by Orbx stuff - mainly because the default stuff in MSFS is so great in so many places already. I'll for sure be purchasing more judiciously and only in places where the upgrade is fairly drastic compared to what's included as default.
  4. Now I see why Microsoft is talking about streaming scenery.
  5. Hmm I think I will need to see some video of it in action to perhaps get a bit more excited about it
  6. Are you a RW pilot also? I often wonder if I just “get it out of my system” with normal flying perhaps.
  7. I just want to add that even I, who flies routinely in real life, have very little interest in PMDG level simulations. I hope that's available to those that want it, but it's a hyper niche within a tiny niche to begin with.
  8. Really great video - incredible how good this in-sim footage looks!
  9. I think they were pretty deliberate in reviving the flight simulator name honestly. So much of what made flight simulator a very detailed platform over the years was due to third parties, so as long as that is something that is still accessible and the platform extensible, I think the future could be very very bright.
  10. Let’s keep in mind that other than XP and AF, of which OrbX support is mostly newish, our entire flight simulation experiences over all time all started and continued with the Microsoft flight simulator base product. If they do anything close to what they had done in the past before the Flight product, but in a next generation way, this will be a huge win for everybody moving forward. Let’s give them some rope to work with here and be optimistic. Microsoft is a vastly different company right now then the one that canceled flight simulator and the one that pushed out t
  11. I see cloud shadows - especially off in the distance down over those hills on the bottom left (and obviously on the right very clearly also)
  12. Man - those pics and that video That lighting engine looks just spectacular How about that DA62 in the hangar shot? You could literally pass that off as a real photo.
  13. Fair - but I guarantee there will still be places with no buildings or less accurate buildings and structures and just something flat, or "squished cars", etc, etc.. That's just how it goes with this sort of approach. I don't hold it against Orbx, I just think it shouldn't be held against MS either. And just being candid, the Seattle cityscape already looks better in that FS teaser video - the Space Needle in particular. Don't get me wrong - the TE stuff is a huge step forward for both P3D & XP.... No question about that.
