captjim wrote:Captjim here again. This is going to be interesting. I have been a simmer for many years and have lots of programs The problem is that all of these programs have been purchased through many types of stores that had the programs already packaged. So I could take the program home, insert the disks and fly. However, good old MS decided that the new FS 2020 is only available in the disk format in other countries not in the USA. If that isn't bad enough I have no idea how to obtain the program on-line and/or the procedure used to pay for it. If anyone out there can give this old guy some instructions concerning this matter it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Captjim

Ouside cities the terrain is basic but otherwise fictional. I will post a picture of a place I know on google earth and MSFS2020. MSFS2020 is fictional in this area,. Nothing is right. there is water where there is none. Trees where there are non and no trees etc
The updates are a huge PIA as you load up for a quick flight and have to wait hours . In other words you can't use it regularly.
And setting up the controls, and pause, change airport or change aircraft mid flight? Forget it. A complete PIA in this aspect

Default aircraft have good visuals (maybe they bought to Dovetail the FSW planes),
buy the basic edition.
If we think in defaults of P3D or Xplane they look good but the flight model (particularly in ground) and avionics need a lot of work.
Not to say that they are adding towers, castles, etc. and still have not added a relevant number of important airports in the base program.
As somebody said: "we have paid for a beta of Bing moving maps". If you like VFR is the best. If you like feel the aircraft, not.
Finally if your internet is a problem, note that the program runs connected if you want to run the complete scenery and that the program is updated monthly.
The remark about the program being online is very important though. If you have some kind of monthly download limit, and/or you have a very slow internet connection, you don't want that simulator at all.

Absolutely bang on the money; you need very high speed broadband to download Bing scenery in real time. I have adsl and it won’t even touch it. I have to make do with default scenery which has many faults, especially with water.
