And New York City?

I'm gonna die before seeing it developed  :(

Or is it a surprise? :rolleyes:

 

Matteo hai un sacco de lavoro, bravo!

 

Thank you so much for such wonderful mail. I see you all are working very hard and it is a great sensation that you have let us know the plans, this brings joy and excitement and somehow a peace of mind on what to expect from Orbx and that you are on it.

 

Thank you!

Carlos

Hi everyone,   We realise we have not announced any product roadmap for a while, mostly due to putting efforts on planning around the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator and understanding

So what you're saying is all the people who enjoy city packs shouldn't be allowed to drive the market for add-ons because they take developers away from niche and unprofitable projects. Not sure I ent

Thanks for the updates.   However I echo previous comments re: what about YBBN and YPPH for FS 2020?   Also what is the status of the following main Australian airports for FS 2020

Looks great! Still hoping to see both ESSA and perhaps an ENGM scenery some time this year!

 

As for ESSA, that's the plan.

Overall good News! I´m really looking forward of Sao Paulo. Whats about the Alaska Airport Series like PAEN, PAGS, PAHO, PAJN, PAKT PAVD and PAYA?

 

I'm looking at porting PAVD, but got a few other ones ahead of that one :)

Orbx Board of Director's meeting.:banghead::banghead::banghead:

"35,189 airports, we can't do them all!", the lead Product Manager mumbled.

"And if we are doing it, its in the wrong sim!!', added the CFO

:)

Same meeting - "Lets put this story up on April One"

 

"Nah' - they won't believe us and inundate us more of the 35,189 CTD sites and

let's just remember the Orbx Motto"

 

"You can satisfy some of the people some of the time - some of the people none of the time -

But - none of the people - All of the time"

 

and then again - NiIl illigitimum simulatus Pilatus Carborundum:D

Sydney cityscape for P3D :) I think I have been waiting for that since the very first time I started simming. We had a couple of OZX addons for FSX, that would build up the north Sydney area. But unfortunately it does not play well on current P3D.

Cant wait to see the full CBD!!!!

Maaybe the aircraft is for P3D ;)

I keep a list of sceneries that I want that are under development or consideration for MSFS.  I believe they made a soft announcement about future development of YBBN.  They released the BNE City Landmarks scenery.

After the purchase of Channel Islands data some years ago, I'm really surprised to not see Jersey, Guernsey, Sark and Alderney included in the list of MSFS sceneries. Seems like a logical fit as they're small and look great from a sales perspective.

So you are abandoning further updates to  MSFS and P3dv5.1 with the current Orbx library,

 

I would like to see KRDD updated to P3dv5.1/MSFS and Spokane finished.  

I myself have been waiting for  KRDD v5. I assume it is not a straight forward port and I have no idea if it will ever comes...

Probably would have been converted by now if it wasnt the case.

What happened to YPPH? It has been touted in the recent past as in development but doesn't appear in your road map.

and a Perth Cityscape and it's stable mate of GA Jandakot.

 

Perth is home to the B787 direct to London and Auckland so I would have thought it would have been a must do for MSFS.

I almost fainted when I read your news about the Edgley Optica, one of my top 5 favorite aircraft. Thank you so much for this - I'll be counting the days (well, I will be when there is a release date). I'll purchase it immediately! In fact, I'll buy 2...no, 3!

 

Thanks again. Waiting on the edge of my cockpit seat...

KBOI!  Count me in, this is fantastic news.  It is being done by Orbx in house or third party?

It is not from one of their indie developers so it must be in-house. This makes it all the more odd that they will not be developing it in conjunction with an MSFS version. I can understand issues with porting older airports to MSFS.  However all new in-house airports should be developed simultaneously for both P3D & MSFS.

It’s fine with me, I don’t use MSFS, just P3D.  I used to live in Boise and worked jets there.  Looking forward to it.

This is really excellent news !

 

Of course everyone has their additions as we all have our particular spots of the planet that we enjoy the most.

 

A gentle "plug" for an area that has always been something special for me since I began flight simming so many years ago.

 

I really miss Bowerman.  It was just so neat in FSX and for me became a classic. When asked by friends about Orbx my answer was always the same.  Spectacular scenery that is a must have, but check out Bowerman and you will see why I enjoy what they do so much :)

 

I appreciate that your plate is full for this year, but would it be possible at some point in the future to make stopping off at the "Luna Cafe" a reality again for MSFS.  

 

It would be a classic reborn :)

 

But for now your roadmap will give all of us many happy hours to look forward to.

Well done folks, very well done indeed!

Cheers

Pete

Shame not to see any small airfields /airports included in the list, those were my favourites in FSX and P3D.  Presumably those are being left to freeware and other developers now in favour of regional airports. Oh well!

 

As someone who likes pottering about in GA aircraft, there's not much in the way of airports there that grab me. 

 

The updates to North of England and Scotland might be worth looking at.

Yes, I understand that.  I was a tester for MSFS.  Didn’t like it, all I got from them was game, game, game on the testing team and forums.  I like simulators not games.  Sorry my friend, no offense.

Really really glad to see Orbx developing India! 

Well Mumbai is the city where I live, would love to see this city pack for Prepar3D platform too, any chances?

 

Would request you to develop VABB Mumbai Airport as well.

As you must've already discovered the beauty of this city, maybe consider this magnificent airport ! :)

 

Looking Forward...

Totally agree about Bowerman. One of my first flight sim experiences was at that airport. Would love to see it again.

No offense taken :) I've been using sims for 15+ years (FS2002 through to MSFS, including various P3D iterations) I agree it felt more like a game at the start but now is a different story, and will be again when PMDG etc rolls out the hanger, it's defiantly becoming more like a sim (a few more things added and it'll be better than FSX was).

 

I'm having a bit of a grumpy day at work, and probably took your comment the wrong way, as others have said, hopefully in future dev teams will develop for both sims as people use both

112 comments and very few naysayers -  management will be impressed.  Those of us in the 'non MSFS' group not so much but, as has been said, nothing remains the same.  The promise of a True Earth Southern Spain leaves me a bit underwhelmed when there are so many multi-requested areas being ignored.  One tends to forget that XPlane is no longer a favorite child but like little Oliver in the workhouse - "Please sir, I want some more XP".

Agreed :( Hope Orbx brings up stuff for us too :))

I am a disappointed about those many negative and demanding responses and also about those many "nice, but..." responses to these fantastic news revealed by Orbx.

 

Guys, be grateful with this awsome roadmap and be happy with the products introduced and please stop demanding more and more.

 

Actually, the roadmap sux if you're not into MSFS

Any plans for Matteo to port YBCG to MSFS? 
 

Love that Mattel’s bringing us KVNY, LIPH and SBSP and I’m pleased with the all the upcoming landmark city packs-especially Frankfurt!
 

Matteo did it for FSX and P3D which I loved as Gold Coast is my local airport and the default YBCG in MSFS ain’t that great.

Interesting. This explains why User Classicwings78 (MSFS forum) withdrew the Edgely Optica freeware from Flightsim.to. Well, if it's going to be payware,then I'll expect to see a lot of his roadmap implemented in the package.

 

Will it have an auto-pilot?

Not his model, no connection whatsoever.
