      Glad I stuck with X-plane. Tried MSFS but with slower than normal WiFi speeds and huge and frequent updates and a myriad of update problems, I deleted it. Maybe in the future when it’s stable and large updates are not needed on a seemingly weekly basis, I’ll give it another go. For now, I love my X-PLANE.

      This is getting a bit ridiculous. Just fix what you break in the first place. Focus on that instead of breaking things and then having to wait for another update to fix the things you broke with the update that broke them.

      After the SU5, I have got a lot of problems and unfortunately I could not update to the HOTT FIX1 or HOT FIX 2 either
      I have had tried a lot of suggestions from different forums with no luck so I am eagerly waiting and hoping that next
      major updates will fix my problems

      I just hope these updates will always be for Free and won't try to sell cummulitive updated packages every few years.

      That's never been mentioned so there's no need to worry - Xbox Studios aren't Laminar Research or Lockheed Martin.

      After nearly a year of waiting for 1) a video card and 2) MSFS to get "fixed" I finally have my new build parts and DVD copy ready to go. I was waiting for this update before installing. Then I hear about this. So my question is this: is the fact that MSFS is now on Xbox hindering the program for we PC simmers? I can understand expanding the market for console users, but if you wreck the show for the historic Microsoft Flight Simulator PC core base dating back to the mid-90s, then you are just ruining it for everyone. I was always weary knowing that MS would put their new sim on their console where kids don't have real flight sim hardware. To us simmers, it is NOT a game.

      While updates should always be free, they have said they will charge for larger feature updates. Proper helicopter support was one they hinted at charging for. Not a bad thing to help fund development, in my view.

      Ya know, when you constantly have to bring your brand new car to to a garage to get a bunch of problems fixed, I think they have a word for that: Lemon
