    Default I really like FS2020, but I miss...

    In particular, I miss ...

    - capabilities of AI resources like WOAI, MAIW. Getting really sick of the word "generic" and the butt-ugly FSFW95-looking AI models.
    - capabilities of utilities like voicepack
    - ability to save a flight, anytime anywhere and return to it later with every aspect of the flight intact.
    -- availability of huge numbers of freeware aircraft and repaints. Kinda depressing when one of the largest repaint offerings seems to be the artwork on the coffee cup in the friggin' cockpit cupholder.

    I know these things are (might be) coming and take time to (possibly) develop, I'm just being a bit nostalgic.

    I feel that 500 repaints for 1 aircraft (the FBW a320 f.i.) is substanial.
    Maybe the coffee cup is overdone but it gave people who never repainted anything a change to customize something themselfs.
    Maybe I'm wrong but I feel the community is more active then when FSX was launched.
    There are things we would like to see but this game is not even a year old.

    Maybe you're right, Hans - the community IS more active than when FSX was launched. It only took a month after launch for someone to add face masks to the pilots and ground crew models, and a couple of weeks ago there were two versions of the Ever Given container ship which blocked the Suez Canal. There are a few on these forums who'd like to point out that there's a Godzilla in MSFS, but no King Kong climbing the Empire State building, therefore MSFS sucks!
    There are many things I'd like to see in MSFS already, but it's a work in progress and Asobo will be developing it for the next 10 years.
    Laminar Research and Lockheed Martin are still developing their sims after at least that long, and charge their customers for every upgrade.
    The recent low FPS and stuttering bug really had me thinking that the sim had been developed beyond my PC's capacity, and I'm relieved that it's been fixed for now, but that day will surely come as more features and effects are added. That's why I pre-ordered and received an Xbox Series X on the day it launched. I'll use MSFS on the PC for as long as it'll run reasonably well, but when it doesn't I'll be happy to wait for MSFS to launch on Xbox and play FSX Steam until then.

    I agree! Time to fix the little Things that make the sim enjoyable. The "Generic" has got to go! The vehicles running all over don't enhance the experience.

    "I feel that 500 repaints for 1 aircraft (the FBW a320 f.i.) is substanial"

    That is pretty much my point right there. 500 repaints for a single aircraft! Do you not see the irony? I would gladly take 100 aircraft with a single repaint!

    My post was just lamenting that true traffic and AI customization will likely be some time in coming. Yes, the bugs come first, and those take time. And you are correct - at 1 year, MSFS is still in it's infancy.

    I hope that MS management do not forget that "As real as it gets" (the MS slogan for Flight Simulator at one time) involves much more than eye-popping scenery graphics (which are quite awesome).

    You can disable generic in the traffic settings.
