Some time spent in a flight sim chatroom inspires Nicolas to talk about where the flight sim community stands going into the new MSFS, what flight sim media should be doing (themselves included), the forthcoming price hike in add ons, the reasons for the forthcoming price hikes and other elements of flight sim marketing, development and development budgets. Hopefully it isn’t as dry as it sounds and proves interesting and informative.
In this episode Nicolas talks about their disappointment with The FeelThere E Jets V3. They also discuss their tepid response to the release of the PMDG NGU 737-700 expansion. Mostly due to the fact that they have grown tired of the 737. They go on to discuss the release of the FSLabs A321. Their only frustration is with the dispatching of the plane as opposed to the plane itself. They end by mentioning that they just purchased The Aerosoft A330-300. Having waited 3 months in hopes of improved stability upon purchase. Nicolas’ review of The Aerosoft A330 will come at a later date.
